WD N750 router not working as advertised, only 72.2Mbps
3 March 2015
Summary: Bought 2 of these from Smileys Goods and both will not connect wirelessly at more than 72Mbps. Tried to return both and get told since they are new, contact Manufacture. This is the reason internet buying sucks.
Summary: Get a more evolved router where the programmers maybe actually use it. One of the lan ports burned out shortly after I got it.
Pros: Generally Works
Cons: Lots of weird stuff happens. It constantly says "You have successfully logged out". Yes it totally sucks that it logs you out every five minutes and that wonderful auto feature for me overrides everything else. It's just totally annoying that you have to keep logging back in when you're working on something. The timeout s/b settable. You cannot block a MAC if you allow guest access and that MAC comes in as a guest. Another problem is it defaults to no security on Gues...
Great for the price, works fine after difficult setup, not the best throughput

Summary: UPDATE (3 stars overall): After four months or so of use, I found my connection speed was not what I hoped. I have Comcast Blast 105Mbps internet service. Direct to modem, I get around 92Mbps, which is close enough to what I'm paying for that I don't complain. Direct to router, I get more like 82Mbps, which is disappointing for a direct ethernet connection. On wireless I get around 65Mbps, even if I'm standing right next to the thing.
Pros: wireless speed ok what ever speed on your service distance ok
Cons: since bought it for 8 month no matter upgrade vision or not upgrade vision keep droping connection have reboot twice a week call WD got a replacement so far ok don't know this one how long it last lucky still warrenty.
Summary: If all your devices works on internet, don't buy this. Ask for refund if you can.
Pros: 1. Look and Feel 2. Easy setup 3. router administration can be done from any device including over WiFi 4. Dual band
Cons: Here we go: 1. Weak signal (yes I’m sitting pretty close to the router in my 1 bed room apartment) 2. Zero Reliability a. Repeatedly internet connection drops! And had to restart router b. Internet slows down all of a sudden! And had to restart router c. Vonage phone calls drops! And had to restart router d. Youtube breaks! And had to restart router 3. QOS settings are not self-intuitive. Setting it up only breaks internet… 4. Dual band for name sake
Cons: The performance of router is very bad. Multiple times, netflix hangs because of connection drops on wired network, VPN client drops connections when using this n/w. Except small size and web based setup, everything is bad. Worst router your money can buy. I did not buy fron newegg, but wish I had bought via them to resend it back for a different make/model.
Summary: I expected this to broaden my range throughout my home above my current modem/router. To my disappointment, it did not. My original Xfinity Modem/Router does just as well, and I still have horrible signal in the upstairs of my home.
Pros: Takes up very little space theoretical gigabit ports (don't really operate as such though) White with nice blue LED's
Cons: I bought this router to replace a Linksys... BIG MISTAKE!!! Intermittent lag spikes are a pain (didn't have them with other routers and do not have them when directly connected to cable modem). The real pain about this router is this: about once a day, give or take, I will lose connection to the internet... or so it seems. A quick search will reveal a multitude of users experience this same phenomenon and they 'fix' it by rebooting the router. Working in the IT field ...
