  • Summary: We needed a wireless router for our Xbox and Wii to work Netflix. So far the signal has worked great for these two. I tried to use the wifi for my Samsung Galaxy and it says the signal is weak. But for the reasons I bought this, it works just fine.

Had to run in g mode for good performance

Paul A., Newegg
24 January 2013
  • Summary: If you read on the web, some claim that supporting the slower b lowers the throughput. There is a dialog on the subject on superuser.com I measured the throughput using speedtest.net.
  • Pros: Cheap. Easy to set up. Adequate performance once I figured out that running in b/g/n compatibility mode was slowing it down.
  • Cons: Using a Dell Precision M4700 with the TEW-711BR configured for b/g/n compatibility, the throughput was in the 1-5 mbps range. Surprisingly, the Properties tab on the M4700 WiFi indicated a link speed 72 mpbs. That was clearly a hypothetical number based on the mode. Setting it to g mode brought t...

  • Pros: gets internet to my computers
  • Cons: pain in the nuts setup, port forwarding is a nightmare. not your most easily customize able router. also when i have about 4-5 pc's connected i either need to reset the router when the 4th+ connects or suffer unuseable latency. not what i wanted.

fine with laptop did not work with desk top

Chalmer D., Newegg

  • Summary: If you do not mind the hassle it is probably oik for a laptop wireless source.
  • Pros: It worked well with my lap tops after figuring out pass code
  • Cons: It was not a plug and play like my link sys. I had to hook lap top up to start it working and then put serial number of router in each machine I got on Internet with wirelessly. Both laptops worked fine after entering this number off of the bottom of the router. However I use wireless modems with...

Meh

  • Summary: This replaced a 6 year old Dlink router and it's about on the same level imo. Spend some more money and get a better router. Maybe updating firmware helps but I have yet to do that.
  • Pros: It was cheap on a deal ($15). Installation was extremely easy.
  • Cons: It has fairly weak signals. The wireless across my room receives 4 bars out of five (Note: The room is barely 15 feet away)

  • Summary: As I am no techno wizard I found the set up instructions to be poor. I also have problems fairly regularly when my kindle or laptop loses the signal and I have to re-boot the router. It does the job but not particularly well.

  • Excerpt: Ставил на замену DIR-300, поэтому сравнивать буду с ним. Из плюсов, значительно возросла скорость по проводному соединению (честные 100Mb), при любой нагрузке всегда холодный. Из минусов, в "панельной двушке" сигнал на кухне слабый, в ваной и туалете вообще нету.
  • Pros: Не дорогой, холодный, быстрый
  • Cons: Время от времени теряет соединение, слабый сигнал Wi-Fi
