update should have posted when I wasn't tired and grumpy

David A., Newegg
5 January 2015
  • Summary: i don't run any network drives or stream media other than over the web so this I can't speak as to the total speed you will get. I only have a 25mbps fios line so that is all this needs to deal with.
  • Pros: Low price. Solid stability sfter reset and firmware update. Suprisingly decent range in 2.4ghz. Dirt cheap for a 5ghz ac router.
  • Cons: 5ghz band is extremely short range. We have a very small appartment and if go into the bedroom with my cell phone and shut the door, about 30-40 ft away, I will loose 5ghz signal. 2.4 is meanwhile still at full strenght.

Ok router I guess...for the price

Anonymous, Newegg
2 January 2015
  • Summary: I actually bought this as a christmas present for my 11yr old autistic son who seems to have a special knack for all things technical. He was wanting a wireless router so he could learn about IP traffic, port forwarding, NAT setups, etc. He was all excited when he opened it.
  • Pros: Small, doesn't seem to get overly hot. Simple setup. Wireless range and speed is good enough (actually way better than my netgear AP which I paid 4x as much for) and no drop-outs (yet...time will tell)
  • Cons: leaves me wishing I could put DD-WRT on it or get another router that could.

Really good one

Shu W., Newegg
24 October 2014
  • Summary: It is still a very good router at the price under 30 bucks.
  • Pros: 1. At $26 it is good enough for a AC router. 2. setup is easy and many functions are very good(separated SSID setting, ipv6 support) 3. connection is fast and stable, much better than the router from Optimum. 4. I don't experience any automatic reboot or signal lost.
  • Cons: 1. The coverage of 5G signal is not good. Only one wooden door makes my signal only 175mbps, not 433mbps as claimed. I've no idea how to improve it.

Top performance router for the price, but something you should know

QQQQ, Amazon
31 August 2014
  • Summary: Setup was a breeze, plenty of options to customize everything I need to and more. Beam forming is mentioned, but I couldn't find any details in the manual..? The router locked up after about 3 weeks in action. I tried every reset, reboot and trick I know but it wouldn't pass data.

Works great, but requried and got friendly tech support

ROBERT E MURRAY, Amazon
14 August 2014
  • Summary: With more than one call to tech support, which was very knowledgeable and friendly, the system now works great. My configuration is a MAC downstairs and a PC upstairs. installation required on-line support to use the online installation procedure, which could use some clarifications.

a very good router

appliance wrangler, B&H Photo

  • 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.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection, Secure Connection
