Spend a little more on something better.

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.
Excerpt: This router was recommended to me during Staples chat. The price was right but the router wasn't. It was not powerful enough for our smartphones, laptops, and Roku. Only provided a "good" signal and would drop the smartphones wifi while using the Roku.
Excerpt: I have been using this router for about one year now and when it is working, it is OK. The trouble with mine is ... it takes a "dirt nap" and stops sending out a Wi-Fi signal more often than I am comfortable with. I have yet to discover a reason for this anomaly. My WD router is on a UPS battery, so power glitches do not affect it. Typically it just dies on average of once or twice a month with no set interval in between events.
Excerpt: I used for couple of weeks and found that wireless connection is very unreliable. 2.4GHz breaks often but 5.0GHz is consistently breaks. To make sure I connected laptop through Ethernet and works fine. I had to return. WD needs to improve their product to get into wireless router business.
Excerpt: Compare with my old Netgear router that I installed in the center of my house to service 2 PCs on opposite ends which gave me good to excellent signal strength, this WD N750 HD Dual-Band Router only gave me fair to good signal strength. Very disappointed. So, I say Netgear Routers are better than Western Digital Routers.
Excerpt: I installed it and required some effort om my part. Thing did not seem to go well. During the installation is said it was going to search for wireless units, but found only three of six. Furthermore, it said something to the effect, this product will not support your Canon printer unless you do something? It worked on my computer but I had trouble setting it up on the interactive Dish TV system I have installed.
