Disappointing router

Chris W., Newegg
29 August 2013
  • Pros: Gigabit capability
  • Cons: First one replaced under warranty after a month or so. The second one is only a couple months old and, as other have stated, has started dropping wifi connection several times daily. Also, the range has little improvement over my older, non-gigabit router

Don't buy this

Alex P., Newegg
27 August 2013
  • Pros: Good dual band router and easy set up
  • Cons: This router is VERY VERY spotty. I bought one and set it up and after a month it doesn't connect anymore. Then got a replacement and the SAME EXACT thing happened after a month or two. Something is very odd with this item. I got a asus router afterwards and it's been working perfectly. Beware of this unit. I should of known it NOT to buy a cheap Rosewill.

Rosewill T600N - skip this model

Steven S., Newegg
23 July 2013
  • Summary: Whether this is a compatibility issue, or just a defective product, I don't have enough confidence to use it in my office. I'm also not putting the customary hours of 'Did you reset your modem and router?' with a support agent, and then paying to ship it back and forth for a couple weeks. I need my network up and running.
  • Pros: -Priced well for a gigabit router.
  • Cons: Unfortunately, my faith in Rosewill products was not rewarded this time. Like other reviewers of this product, my router would not hold a steady connection to my modem. Manual settings didn't seem to help. Spent a few hours troubleshooting, but this is for a computer repair business, so if automatic settings don't work, i'm not going to be typing out new settings for every machine I hook up to my bench.

Great range, but not worth it!

Brett W., Newegg
8 July 2013
  • Pros: This router as a great range. Much MUCH larger than that of my internal antenna router.
  • Cons: This router has HUGE issues with staying connected to the router. I have actually had to connect this router as an Access Point to my other router so this is basically a range extender. I would recommend staying away from this one. It's likely that a firmware update would take care of this, but no update as of yet.

update !

robert t., Newegg
22 May 2013
  • Pros: this is a 3rd review update as I stated before in my last to reviews. Grate signal and range. but as suspected the problems I was having with being dropped. was a Comcast issue. bad Comcast modem ? so I have to reassure you all this is a pretty good little unit. definitely for Wi-Fi gameing
  • Cons: user inter face could use some improvement..

There are better alternatives in this price range

Andre J., Newegg
6 May 2013
  • Summary: At this point, your average Joe & Jane User would get frustrated. Afterall, it did come packaged with a rather nicely written quick setup guide. It was disappointing that it wasn't working.
  • Pros: As much as love to talk highly about something, this router just didn't really prove itself to be that great of a unit, at least not when compared to other units in the same price range, both retired and those still in retail channels.
  • Cons: Where to start? As others have noted, the initial setup wizard does not appear to properly negotiate anything. And just to be sure, I went through a factory reset twice. Same results- nothing.

not to bad

robert t., Newegg
30 April 2013
  • Pros: Wireless Range. I have used this Rosewill T600N Gigabit Router at thirty feet for gameing. on my wireless desktop computer it has an Asus Wireless adapter Model PCE-n13. 300Mbps 802.11b\g\n PCI-Wireless Adapter. and at thirty feet away from the unit I am pulling download speeds of 26.58Mb/s and upload speeds of 4.19Mb/s . this is with comcast modum and comcast sevice. so in my opinion. this has a nice rang and is very suitable for gameing and videos. this unit replace...
  • Cons: the setup was not that grate. due to the fact the time and date in the router interface page was set to 2011 and it was suppose to auto download the time and date. which It did not do. so I linked it to my computer and tried it that way it would not let me change the time and date. it returned every time I tried. to the 2011 date and pacific standard time. so one more time I told it to get the time and date from the computer. it had a : at the end. so I back spaced it...

Solid wi-fi for the home

David M., Newegg
27 April 2013
  • Pros: Real fast, can’t tell the difference between the wired network line and the wireless. I have Verizon Fios 75Mbps Download and 35 Mbps upload. I did the following tests using the website speed test. I was using the wireless that came with the Verizon router for the last few years.
  • Cons: I was a bit disappointed in the range of the unit. The 5GHz actually has a shorter range than the 2.4 GHz and that is probably due to the antennas being inside the unit. I was only able to get a connection about 30 feet in any direction from my home. This may be a high issue as I do have the unit in the first floor of my home but it is not underground so it really should have worked. I assumed the 2.4GHz would have a similar range that a house phone does as the same f...

Nice

Anonymous, Newegg
3 April 2013
  • Pros: Not bad as far as routers go. Antennas ensure complete coverage of average sized homes, as far as I have experienced. Not too pricey. For a router that covers almost all types of networking I mean. Works fine with all of the components in my household either wired or wireless. Decent encryption and firewall with selectable levels of security. Setup is 1diot-proof. Pretty much plug and play. Very little needed to get it up and running. My 11 year old daughter is gettin...
  • Cons: At first randomly wouldn't let devices logon when first booted. I unplugged it once and reset the system, and no problems since. HUH? Oh well, now it works fine. Tried updating the firmware, but none can be found for it yet on the Rosewill website. Guess maybe it was just a glitch that fixed itself. For larger coverage areas you might want to look elsewhere. Covers my 1200 square foot home with no problems. 4-5 bars everywhere. Even get 3-4 bars outside. But might not...
