Excerpt: I have a couple of macs and the router was plug and play. I've only been using it for a couple of weeks but it has been reliable and very fast. I think I'm hitting speeds via wifi that are as fast as if I used the gb ethernet. I gave it 4 stars because I haven't used it for long - maybe that's not fair as it's done everything that's on the box.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection, Secure Connection
Excerpt: Product works great and has dual band so the user can avoid the 2.4Ghz lags from high occupancy areas such as NYC. Sometimes the router has a lag still however this could be due to my hardware that I am accessing it on.
Excerpt: works well enough. hasn't dropped signal yet. gets reviews as having really impressive signal strength - I'm ok with it but not blown away. one annoying quirk - not sure you can set it up wirelessly. I had to borrow a friend's computer with an ethernet port.
Pros: Fast, Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection
Summary: This router was not the easiest to set up. I changed my cable modem and had a hard time getting the router to communicate with the new modem to get the IP address. The wireless also routinely drops out about every 15 minutes for about a second (no signal). Test scores suggest good download speeds, but actual used suggests it is slower than my old Netgear router. For the price it is nice, for the issues -- it's not worth the money!
Summary: The Good - fairly easy to set up. WiFi speed through smartphone is great. Reasonably priced. The Not So Good - Manual is on disk only, no hard copy. Quick install guide is written by someone only fairly proficient in English. Router will not connect with Direct TV DVR. Have not been able to connect printer through USB port and use as networked printer.
Excerpt: I replaced a very old router. I have had this one for about amonth. It is much faster as expected but three of us can access the internet at the same time wuihout any slowdowns, even when streaming video. It is located on the second floor and reaches without problem down to the basement. Setup was very easy.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast Connection Speed, Secure Connection
Summary: Easy set up. Stable, but only installed for four days. I needed to pair it with an extender to get coverage upstairs in the far end of my house. Not surprising because my old router needed the extender too. Pairing went smoothly using the WPS button. I was surprised, however, that the use of the WPS button changed the SSID and installed password. This was unexpected and through me for a loop until I figured out what had happened.
