Lasted 8 months, support is useless, company is questionable.

  • Summary: I bought this item for my home and it worked almost flawlessly for 8 months. Then it started messing up (having to be reset every 30min - 1 hour). Now (1 week later) it's not working at all. I called support and they told me to do what I already knew (reset it). Then they tried to charge me $39.99 to access my computers and make sure files were up to date (they claimed this was the problem).

  • Summary: DOA, wouldn't power up. Had to run to the store and buy a different one. It's too bad, price was good.

garbage. Avoid it.

  • Excerpt: I know it's a cheap router, but you'd still expect the hardwired lines to work. They don't. We couldn't hardwire in a desktop and a mac mini at our office. This router absolutely refused to work.
  • Cons: Difficult To Set Up, Unreliable connection

  • Summary: I bought this for thankgiving last year. It worked fine in the beginning. It started giving me problems within 2 months. Suddenly the speed drops down to < 0.5 Mbps or internet goes down. If i directly connect to my modem, speed is > 20mbps. I have to restart the router for make it to work fine. Now a days, i have to do this very frequently as problem appears very frequently per day. Very frustrating. Should have gone for better router with little more money.

  • Summary: I thought I had researched wireless routers well. What ever price range you decide on all the company's have units that compare with each other. Except for customer service! Long story, short stay away from this company.

  • Summary: Purchased this product at about 50% off on Walmart.com. I figured for $10 I couldn't go wrong, and even though it is on the lower end of the spectrum, it is still faster than my 10 year old Linksys Wireless-G 2.4 GHz. Worked fine for about a week, then it started to stop transmitting wirelessly. I could get onto the internet just fine from my hardwired PC, but there was no wireless signal. Called tech support, what a waste of time!

Low end router puts out weak signal. Single band and max 100Mbps are limits

tommystrades, Ebay
3 September 2012
  • Summary: I bought this router because I was getting a weak signal in the basement of my girlfriends house. I was needing to use my laptop and hook up a Wii. Her old Linksys G router was not reliable, it would go from good signal strength to no signal and back, never a reliable connection. I hooked up my newer version of that Linsys router that had worked throughout my larger home and again same poor results.
