CenturyLink here, slow connection, then fast with minor adjustment

CandidOne, Amazon
7 December 2014
  • Summary: First, I like this modem a lot. I never imagined it would make such a difference in speed and signal strength. The top rated comment about the easy route to connection with CenturyLink does not apply to my area of CenturyLink. However, I found the proper settings on the CenturyLink website, without talking to the help. I forgot where it was, exactly, but I think I had to put in my zip code to get the setup info for my area.

Good coverage

A. J., Newegg
26 November 2014
  • Summary: The router gets 5 stars. Newegg's customer service gets rotten eggs
  • Pros: Wireless works, Lots of features, Easy Setup. Improved speeds over my old Linksys N router. Im never buying Linksys again. Thanks TP-Link.
  • Cons: I ordered it and then forgot that my dsl is not adsl. Tried to stop my order and get a C8 archer, but it was too late. Here at Newegg they don't let you change your order. Bad Newegg customer Service. Bad Newegg.

User Review

an anonymous customer, Walmart
25 October 2014
  • Summary: My old Zoom modem had given me great DSL service for 7 years but suddenly it started dropping synch several times a day. I tried the newest version of that modem (Zoom 5790) and did not like it. It had annoyingly bright blue lights on the front - way too many -- and the SYS light flashed constantly for no apparent reason. I contacted Zoom and asked what that light was for and they just said it's normal for it to flash!

Excellent Product

Angie, Amazon

  • Summary: We've been using this router in our house for a few months now and so far we've had no problems at all with connectivity. Some know-how is necessary in order to set it up, though, since you have to configure it. Just copy the settings from your old DSL modem or call your DSL provider for the information you need.

Great DLS router

Tommy W., Newegg
30 September 2014
  • Summary: This would be the perfect DSL modem/router with the upgrade to USB 3.0 ports!!! Just almost perfect now!
  • Pros: Gigabit ethernet port. Transfer saturates ports at 110MB/sec for backup of images and 70MB/sec for files backup to buildup NAS array. FTP server, storage server and print server work well.
  • Cons: USB 2.0 ports eliminates the useful application of storage server app for NAS backup. Place router on nice feet for cooling! Still gets hot when pushing 110MB over two ports for about 10 minutes

Amazing replacement for At&t junk!!

Joseph H., Newegg
12 September 2014
  • Summary: I recommend this router 100%. This thing increased my internet quality massively. If i could I'd shake the hand of whoever designed this thing. This is much cheaper than getting a junk bundle for $120 from my isp, not to mention Wayyy better quality.
  • Pros: Bought this to replace my old At&t supplied 2wire modem/router combo. With the old one we kept getting 2wire/att router drop pages constantly and our online video quality and buffering was really bad. Our LAN speed sucked. Buying this and setting it up FIXED all of these problems. All I had to do was screen cap a few settings from the other router and set them the same on the new one. I never had to call my isp to get info. Videos load and buffer faster. We also have ...
  • Cons: Wall hanger slots are kinda small when it comes to where the head of the nail/screw would go in. Not a big deal just something I noticed. Network Printing Software is Windows only doesn't work with Linux. Haven't found a workaround for Linux. Other than that it all works with Linux.

Perfect for my needs

PJB, Amazon
26 August 2014
  • Summary: Bought this to replace an older adsl modem/router. The only things needed for set up were my ISP user name and password, which I received from my ISP provider. Very simple to set up, no issues occurred, got right on the internet without issue. I know newer models are out with the 5 ghz and 802.11ac protocols, but none of my wireless equipment has 802.11ac adapters or are capable of 5ghz, and for my needs this router is just great.
