Summary: The problem with the software is that when you change the default IP address along with other changes, you can't log back in after the reset. You need to change the address ONLY, reset the router, THEN make other changes. I had to reset to factory defaults 3 time before I discovered this glitch.
Pros: Easy to connect and power up. Has excellent range and speed. I'm very impressed with it's performance.
Cons: Online software is somewhat confusing. Must reset to factory defaults if you don't make changes in proper order, but that order is not discussed.
Summary: Should be a decent router for the price if you don't need WDS.
Pros: Router settings page is easy to navigate, works fine as a normal router.
Cons: I bought this for use as a WDS (wireless bridge) repeater which so far hasn't worked. A quick forums search suggests it might be different processor manufacturers (broadcomm vs atheros) implement WDS slightly different.
Excerpt: With the purchase of a 5G adapter the range and speed on my mac improved greatly. As a regular addition to my current network the n/g showed a negligible improvement. Stepping up to high speed router with antennae would have been the better choice.
Summary: Bought this router based on reviews I saw online about it. Was excited to get it. I'm a network admin by trade, and have setup many routers. I upgraded from a Linksys WRT54G because I wanted the AC speed this thing offered. It was working great for a few months.
Pros: nice price, good reviews on pcmag site. Wireless on it is very fast. Interface is very simple to use.
Cons: It keeps failing. Drops packets like mad. Port Forwarding did not seem to work. Remote Admin didn't work.
Summary: I have a small home 1700 square feet it has plenty bandwidth very fast for the many devices inside the house. But I couldn't get it to connect to IP cameras outside I had to get the trendnet N300 High Power Easy-N-Range Extender TEW-737HRE to broadcast the signal further because the signal was not...
Summary: I really like this router, when it works. Great features (e.g. multiple WiFi networks each on their own VLAN), but the unit I received would "lockup" either after making several configuration adjustments or after several hours of use.
Disappointing performance that did not live up to the reviews.

Summary: I'm sorry to say that I was a bit disappointed. Various reviews (some of them professional reviewers) rated this router as fast and with a large range for its price. However, I found that it performs no better than - and often worse than - a five year old router I bought on the cheap at a box store.
Summary: We had an old router, a Belkin N300, that just didn't have the range or speed that we wanted. It had been doing fine for years, but now that so many things in our home are WiFi (Phones, TV's, DVD players, iPads, Laptops, etc.), we decide to upgrade.
Pros: * High transfers for wired connections. * Reliable device, it hasn't failed. * A lot of features.
Cons: Very slowed wireless connections for my iphones(models :4 and 4S). So every time I connect 2 or more wireless devices like two iphone my internet connections drops from ~30 Mbps to <3Mbps, I use speed test as a guidance. I have to reboot the router so all wireless devices can get the higher bandw...
