Fine, but 5G band can be flaky

  • Summary: I bought this router to provide a bigger and more reliable Wi-Fi network for my home, since I work from home. There are some nice features and generally works okay. I am carefully selecting that work ("okay"), because it doesn't work as expected.

AC 1700 Good Router

  • Excerpt: I had the AC 1600 and upgraded to the AC 1750 for the QoS feature hoping to help my VPN Streaming. My internet dropped at times and my provider service is 20/2 Mbps speed. This is over fiber to the premise service. I checked my provider service and it was not dropping my service.

Not a great start, but it got better

  • Excerpt: I have DSL and 1 wired device with several other wireless devices. I do ask a lot of my router. I had a Netgear wireless N router when a power surge took it out. I thought this would be a nice upgrade.

Very Solid Performance and Good Features

Andrew H., Newegg

  • Summary: The preset SSID and password are written on the unit. This sticker is super helpful for home use. However, if using this router in a semi-public place, make sure to change the password or remove/cover the sticker. There is no wall mounting capability.
  • Pros: Easy to set up. Clear instructions. Great aesthetics. Ethernet cable included. I experienced absolutely solid performance for each connection type (N, AC, Gigabit wired). It comes preconfigured with a secure SSID and password. This is a handy way to help beginners use encryption to protect their ...
  • Cons: I compared the wireless file transfer speeds of my old N and new AC router for transferring both small files (collection of ebooks) and large files (HD video). I transferred them from one PC to another, on my home network. For my case, there was nearly no improvement in file transfer speed simply...

Great unit for a great price.

DONALD M., Newegg
3 November 2014
  • Summary: Client has six (count them, 6) Comcast wireless routers. None can reach any of his devices on a reliable basis. We purchase this unit and.... Everything works. Two Apple TVs, three iPhones, an iPad, Microsoft surface and three laptops. Plus the devices of their teenaged daughters friends.
  • Pros: Great range. Great speed. Many options.
  • Cons: Not reviewed as a "top of the line" unit but I've had no problems and it meets all of my needs.

Stable Performance

Yric H., Newegg
3 November 2014
  • Summary: It looks nice on the shelf and doesn't have any crazy blinking lights on the front that I can see across the room. I prefer it like this.
  • Pros: WiFi stability. We have a lot of devices on the WiFi network and this router has not had an issue handling the demand at all. This includes streaming Netflix, while listening to Pandora on another device and YouTube on a few other tablets. No issues. Definitely worth a purchase when on sale.
  • Cons: Couldn't get the hard drive to work on the usb which cost the rating one egg. I'm using an NAS on my wired network so not really a big deal for this house hold.

So far so good

Datarate, Staples

  • Excerpt: Just installed this, so I have limited review comments. Out of the box and setup we relatively easy. Signal strength & data rate appear to be stable for my application. I look forward to communicating with 802.11ac devices (which I still need to add in) and my NAS storage.

Great router, good value.

  • Excerpt: Overall very pleasantly surprised with this router. The range is excellent, the Genie software is not quite intuitive but good nonetheless, there's 4 Gigabit ports (which you can expand by adding a switch), and performance for me has been rock solid.
