Summary: I have to choose speed over distance or expensive, 2 market, dual band repeaters not sure yet what to do.
Pros: Fastest speeds ever on my S3 according to Ookla, 6.12 upload on a 5 plan. Download was on par. Can stream movies and download apps to multiple devices at same time with good results. Matching dual band receivers are available.
Cons: The range is not as good as the range master TREND net TEW-652BRP. Compatible dual band receivers are pricey, out of stock and application specific.
Summary: I've been putting wireless networks together for over 10 years. I've used all of the usual suspects (Belkin, Linksys, Netgear, etc.). I've used TRENDnet routers before for friends and family and was using a TEW-651BR (paid $12) for myself for over 3 years (constant connection) when I decided that I...
Summary: I have had very little complaints even over wireless I have had Excellent download speeds and connections, when it's connected you can hardly tell the difference between hardwired and wireless. Only complaints is that it seems to fizzle out fast in my opinion on range.
Pros: Really great speeds when in range. Price when I bought it
Cons: I live in a single story home with a completed basement, seems to really lose distance fast even over N signals... I will get 2-3 bars in most places in my home and it's not a large house... 2000sq ft all together. twice I have lost signal due to an ISP outage I tried EVERYTHING in the book to re...
Good but dual band mostly useless for me, perhaps not for you?

Summary: I like everything about this but I expected my new TV (bought XMas 2011) to find the 2nd band - instead every device except one fails to find the 2nd band - I suppose its operating at an in compatible mode - I haven't had time to investigate it though....
Summary: Very happy with the performance, especially the dual-band ... my TV and TiVo connected right up at 5 GHz, while everything else runs at 2.4 GHz. It only supports one LAN (although multiple SSIDs). I set up one "open" SSID, and then one with WPA2 for my own devices.
Summary: Cons: Signal range not as good as other wireless router. Pros: Small, When used from close range or direct line of sight this router is blazing fast. I am using a Killer(tm) Wireless-N 1103 wireless card on my Alienware M17xR3 and I am connected at 450Mbps with the 5GHz band.
Summary: Not a bad device, but throughput did not live up to my expectations. My biggest complaint is that the 2.4GHz antenna is internal and the 3 external antennas are only for the 5GHz range, which doesn't support all the devices or network protocols I'd like to use it for.
