Summary: Well the lights dont light up and stay lit up like they are suppose to. You have to reset it a few times to get it to work...and when you call customer support or technical..they are in a different county and dont really understand or talk very good english and they are rude.
Cons: Wireless Throughput is lacking - Range is moderate, I have Mbps x Mbps internet speed and have never been able to obtain more then 20Mbps download on wireless. Also, even my hardwired PC has latency issue during extreme game play.
Summary: I would say not to waste your money on this router. The only good thing about this router was the setup was very simple and easy and in no time I had the router up and running. I have a comcast connection and if wired I get a download speed of around 110Mbps.
Summary: The gradual failing - having to reboot 4x/day in order to just be able to connect to web sites reliably - has turned me off of this brand.
Pros: Easy to set up and lots of features. The routing portion works well. VoIP via the unit works well.
Cons: Over time, connection drops increase. The unit is unable to support video without stalling. I have 7 wireless connections at home - 2 phones, 2 tablets, 2 computers, and 1 chromecast. I can't work on my work laptop without the connection re-setting constantly. It's bad enough that I'm going to ha...
Summary: Went and bought a NETGEAR WNR2020v2 right after this for a whopping $10 more. Couldn't be happier.
Pros: Cheap N300
Cons: Drops connections constantly even though I'm connected directly to it. Also installed latest firmware from their website. As an online MMO gamer I need stable internet which this did not provide. Added 1 egg just because it will get you on the internet if all you do is surf and email for cheap, b...
Summary: I purchased this router a couple of months ago. It's a good router, generally. I like the GUI when accessing the router - it is simple, clean, and easy to maneuver. I have a desktop PC hardwired into the router and have no problems there. What I do have problems with, however, is the WiFi.
Excerpt: I have a 50 Mbps connection in my office and this router was having a very good day if I could pull 12Mbps from its wifi 5 feet away. Changing the broadcast channels and b/g/n settings were no help.
The connection was terrible and only gave me about 30 Mbps at max

Summary: I purchased this router as an access point for my laptop in another room 2 months ago. The connection was terrible and only gave me about 30 Mbps at max, average of 10-15 (my internet is 50 download and upload). Aside from the speeds, I could never maintain a connection for extended periods of time.
