Pretty bad QOS , drops connection
4 August 2014
Pros: Small size and easy web based interface
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.
Summary: Based on my use of this product and like products I find this to under-perform. The range is weak as are the speeds. The software is tedious and the printer function is quite poor with the need to frequently reset connection. Purchasing this inexpensive product was an error.
Summary: I bought this in hope to make my Internet connection better I have a lot of electronics around my cable modem, and my wireless connection would get interrupted. Well, when I received this router, I updated the firmware after that I set it up.
Summary: The router is easy to setup and very user friendly GUI. But when it comes to the product reliability, it falls completely. It works fine for 3 days around, then I found no internet connection from my laptop, but my pad works; after some comparison, I found it is the 2.4GHz band my laptop connected...
Pros: Reasonable price Dual band Easy setup Giga ports
Summary: Am selling or returning to Newegg for refund and have reinstalled my old router. My wifi numbers are now back up where they should be. Cannot recommend this and will likely not buy another router with internal antenna.
Pros: Nice design. Excellent online interface, except for there being no readily available help info.
Summary: I have this connected to a Motorola cable modem SBG901 that also has wireless-G. Not sure where the problem really is but it appears the WD N750 drops connections fairly regularly when the Wireless-G on the SBG901 is still consistently connected.
Summary: I commend them on offering more features for less that some competitors, however it would be nice if it were a more solid performer.
Pros: Features are better for the price, but it seems like everthing should have been tested more thoroughly
Cons: WiFi disconnects, VPN Tunnel for work quit working on my laptop when my desktop still worked fine and the laptop worked fine at a coffee shop so I know it wasnt the laptops fault - had to play with settings all day until I stumbled upon adding the laptop to the DMZ setting worked as a workaround ...
Summary: Your customer service is mostly friendly and helpful and the process to get an RMA is easy enough, waiting to have the item shipped to me so that I can get my replacement.
Pros: When it worked, it worked - I was getting the same speeds on wireless (or thereabout) as I was on my ethernet plugged in directly coming from my DOCSIS 3.0 Motorola surfboard modem. The software/driver setup and the management tool was intuitive enough to use. I picked this up at a great deal for...
Cons: This router started dying spectacularly two weeks ago. I can't get any throughput, either through the ethernet cable coming out of the unit, using it as a bridge, or just through the wi-fi. I don't care about IPv6 or QOS, but if it doesn't work as advertised, it doesn't work.
Summary: I bought this router from BestBuy when they had it on sale for $50. My thought was that this router had all the features that I wanted, at half the price of the big names. I would still reccommend this router at that price for regular internet browsing or low bandwith users.
