Decent on 5Ghz band for OpenWRT.
3 June 2015
Summary: Installed OpenWRT on this and I have a 300Mbit/s connection (real throughput about 22MB/second ~ 176Mbit/s) to an access point in my basement. However I can't get more than "g" speeds on the 2.4Ghz band. I really needed this only as a wireless bridge on 5Ghz band and this works great.
WD N750 router not working as advertised, only 72.2Mbps

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. not a happy customer
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 o...
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.
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.
FAST! I'm averaging 33.8Mbps download & 8.5Mbps upload with this thing.

Summary: Great product. Reliable & fast as hell. Testing shows I'm averaging 33.8Mbps download & 8.5Mbps upload with this thing. Actual downloading from websites are about 1.5-2.0 Megabytes/sec - very nice! Gets slightly warm, but this is quite mild. I love having 2 wifi signals to connect to.
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 resta...
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...
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.
