Awful

Travis D., Newegg
22 November 2014
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: I'm not sure what's wrong with this router, but I got frequent lag spikes with it and eventually had to replace it. Using a wired connection between my router and computer worked fine, but using it wirelessly was extremely frustrating. I don't recommend.
