Poor Data Throughput

Deane, Staples

  • Excerpt: This router was easy to set up. It replaced a wireless N Netgear router. But from the start its output on the N band was awful. My kids stated their phones got signal on the 2nd floor but data throughput was terrible. I tried resets of all kinds but could not get this router to put data out. I recently put up a wireless IP outdoor camera and it was so slow that I barely got it to rotate.

Disappointed

  • Summary: Probably ok if all you do is surf the web. If you want more than that, you appear to be out of luck. User support is absolutely terrible.
  • Pros: Seems to be fast and handle high data rates.
  • Cons: Preset protocol parameters violate protocol specifications. No way to examine or reset these.

"Poor performance, even worst customer service."

Trackdog1, CNET
23 January 2014
  • Pros: The Genie App is handy for monitoring the poor performance
  • Cons: Terrible warranty. Poor performance. Customer service cannot resolve a thing. If you get a defective device, they shake you down for extra money in the RMA process

  • Summary: I bought this back in march. After only a few months, I would get a wifi drop every couple of days or so... No its dropping wifi every 15-30 seconds! Every now it then it will drop a hardwired connection! This is so annoying, I depend on the internet for many things in my home including including, tv and PHONE! If the router fails then all my devices wont work. I have 5-8 devices constantly connected at any given time. This router is terrible.
