We Don't Notice It--And That's Good

Summary: This router replaced another that died--and one I bought from a local electronics store that kept dropping my devices. My family and I love this one--precisely because we never notice it. It doesn't drop devices. Videos are streamed without hitches or glitches.
Summary: This project just doesn't work consistently. We have to reset it ALL day long to get our WiFi back. The "support" is hard to access and sends you around in circles. We begged our old router for it's forgiveness and plugged it back in, otherwise, I would have no WiFi to be accessing this website.
Summary: This router works awesome when it isn't crashing.... The router consistently crashes and disconnects me from the internet. Online gaming is impossible with this router thanks to this. There hasn't been a firmware update since 2012 either, so WD has decided that it is apparently "good enough".
Summary: Its easy enough to get up and running. Turning on some of the other features like sharing files over Wifi took a while to figure out though, and I couldn't find any documentation online. Everything I could find online was for the N900 model. It also hasn't been as fast I'd expect.
Summary: Do Not purchase this product! I don't typically take the time to write reviews, but I felt I needed to share the poor experience I had with this product to prevent others from having to deal with it.
Constantly needs rebooting. Conflicts with rather than enhances your existing main network.

Summary: This product is not in Western Digital's sphere of competence. They should stick to storage devices and stay out of networking. After numerous calls with technical support we were ultimately never able to get this product to work as a router or as a network extender.
Summary: This is a great router; one USB port, 4 ethernet ports, and the ability to permanent register attached wireless devices so their IP address won't get renewed every week (I said permanent because it registered the devices for 150+ YEARS). This unit does not run hot, very rarely drops the connection.
