Summary: This is one of the worst modem routers I have ever owned. It was highly unstable and very unreliable. An attempt to perform the tricky upgrading of firmware final saw it give up the ghost - much to my relief because it forced my hand to buy a better product which has never let me down.
Summary: This would be an excellent wifi router if only it worked ALL the time but it drops out a lot, sometimes twice a day or more. When it doesn't, for a week or two it has very good range and speed. Out of four wifi routers I have had 3 of them do or did the dropping out thing, one didn't so it's not the satellite modem or the laptop, tablets or kindles. Major Tom don't take this one.
Summary: The description of this item makes it sound ideal for networked printers, game consoles and harddrives. Unfortunately, my wireless printers and games consoles cannot connect, and my harddrive is inaccessible when connected to the router. After trawling through forums and contacting tech support, I have learnt that the router isn't compatible with much. Whilst the high speed and range of the router are nice, they're pretty useless when I can't connect to it.
Summary: I bought this one to replace a BT Homehub2. I wouldn't agree that it looks ugly - I really like the look because it is like Sputnik. It was installed correctly and then the problems started. The wireless is not reliable at all and has no power. In 3 meters from the router it was giving 3/5 lines signal. I have play with the channels in case there was a problem there but it kept having problems.I have try 3 different laptops all with the same problem.
