Summary: This Router is Made In China. It was hacked by Mac Address Spoofing within hours while being configured. There is no way to delete the embedded information in the software they provide. Resetting to manufacture defaults in software and on hardware does nothing to clear the port under hostage.
Summary: If you're looking for something simple and cheap, this is it.
Pros: Once the 1.02 firmware was released, these units have performed quite well. They're basic, but they work great. I've got 10 of these throughout 9 locations, mostly residential Internet use for roughly 700 people. The GUI is easy for beginners and I've never had any speed issues.
Cons: 1.00 firmware was kinda flakey, but 1.02 is much more reliable. Nothing too fancy- few advanced features, but it all depends on what you use it for.
Summary: Too bad, we got excited and our client did too with the initial speed, but after struggling with dropped connections, constant refreshing of web-based application pages and other issues for a day, not worth the time - so back it goes
Pros: Fast when it works, GUI is fine once firmware is upgraded, lots of flexibility but missing some basics
Cons: This router has connectivity problems, mostly related to firmware issues. Citrix support blogs are full of unresolved issues exactly like we had at our client's site - intermittent connectivity is never good no matter how fast the router is. There are issues with port forwarding, a specific issue with port 443, workarounds galore, some features flat out just don't work - but the worst is the inability to stay connected under any kind of load. Appears to have a loopbac...
Summary: For the price, if you are looking for a load balancing router with gigabit ethernet, this router is amazing!!! Load balancing is intelligent, for P2P downloads you actually will leverage both connections for a double speed increase (or triple or quad however many WANs you have coming in) Setup was a pain in the butt, I am a bit of a newb when it comes to this stuff so it took me a few hours of cursing to realize I needed to put my DSL modems into bridged mode and use the...
Pros: -Price, -Gigabit Ethernet, -Up to 4 WAN connections supported, -Lots of management functionality for the price
Cons: -Manual not very detailed, -Translation is not the greatest
Summary: I'm heavily involved in streaming video, both internet and IPTV on carrier networks. I needed a box that could do 2 things, both of which were easily done with this one. First, you can assign a port to mirror another port. This allows you to look at all the packets on a connection by simply inserting this router in line and picking off the mirror to monitor. Secondly I needed the ability to limit the available bandwidth, which this also does.
Pros: Very handy tool kit. Very flexible. GbE port mirroring, port by port bandwidth limiting. VLAN support.
Summary: Hopefully future firmware upgrade will make it more robust.
Pros: Setup is a breeze if you are familiar with router/firewall setup. The web management interface is neat and fast for this type of router. Features are great though I am still trying to make the policy routing works. Virtual server functions as port forwarding. So far so good. Very perfect for load balancing. Multiple wan ports is a plus and gigabytes networking is a plus too. This is not UTM router/firewall so be aware. For SOHO great router.
