Easy setup. Good range. Signal drops.
3 March 2014
Excerpt: Bought this last week from staples.com Delivered on time. Very easy to setup. It prompted to install the latest firmware & I did that. Powerful transmitter. The signal is available everywhere in my small 1,000 sq ft 2 BHK. The two bands work well. It's fast.$32 is a great price. One issue that I observed was that the signal drops sometimes. I re-tarted the router once & that seemed to cure this problem for a while.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Fast Connection Speed, Great price
Excerpt: Did not see much improvement over my old D link - 655. It turns out that the dual band 450 ONLY works with devices that are 5 GHZ - not dual band at 2.4 so the second band may get you nothing as it was in my case. Even with a new TV and a new Sony Bluray 3D player, none of my devices are 5 GHZ. There apparently is no way to test if the 5 GHZ band works for later use.
Excerpt: Out of the box, it wouldn't accept the default login and password. Had to factory reset twice to get it running. Parental controls and web history log aren't what I was hoping for. In access point mode, it loses much of its additional functionality, so had to put it back in router mode. Firmware update was easy, but quite slow. The main reason I purchased was for the 2 USB ports, to have an inexpensive NAS setup. For that purpose, it's great.
Excerpt: I bought this router to get gigabit wired and wireless N speed internally between PCs and a home NAS storage unit. I have multiple wired PCs with Gigabit adapters and they will only connect at 100Mbps. Wireless connections will connect up to 72Mbps but I frequently see slowdown issues. If I switch the PC or tablet to my old Uverse wireless router the speed is fine. My issues may be related to the router being configured at a gateway.
Excerpt: I got this router very cheap. Most of my devices connected ok with the auto WPA. A couple though didn't. My Directv loses connection with it all the time and have to reprogram it back in. Our PS3 had a little trouble connecting, but it finally did. My daughter's Wii can't find the connection at all. The signal is not constant nor does it go very far. I thought this would be a better one than the modem/router that came with Verizon, but sadly it isn't.
Excerpt: The "easy install" software gave me error messages after the 2nd step. I had to abandon the install CD and call technical support. Here's a positive: their tech support was superb (no long hold times and very patient with all my non-computer vocabulary). Despite their best efforts, it took me 3 days to program all my wifi USB adapters to find the router. This was selling at such a good price that I bought two (one for me and one for my daughter).
Excerpt: I would really love this router except for the fact that My Wife and I are getting occasional brief loss of service. Loss of service aside it's still better than my old N300 router. It comes with 2 USB ports. You can attach printers or hard drives of one of each and have the router act as the server, so instant NAS or wireless printer. I haven't attached a drive yet, so I can't comment on the ease of making a NAS. I have attached my printer.
