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.
Summary: I bought this a couple of years ago. The last few months my internet had been insanely slow. I was constantly rebooting. A couple of days ago and after a few calls to Comcast I decided I would test where my problem is coming from. I suspected the router from the beginning.
Summary: I'm no techie, just a regular mojo and here's my one year experience with this router. Originally I was having very poor connections wired and wirelessly and having to reboot about every three days or so. Three months later I learned about a few things and did the following.
Summary: I've now had about 4 months to get acquainted with this router, and it has performed well after a shaky start. Just like anything, i had to figure out what worked best for our particular set up. The unit operates as it should.
Summary: The router was a breeze to set up. The UI for settings is easy to use and understand. Updates take effect immediately when changes are made in the settings menu. This router is dual band (2.4 and 5 ghz respectively) with both bands working well. The coverage is quite impressive!
Summary: the signal does slow down a bit every now and then but picks back up after a while. i think it is the router but it could be my isp (internet service provider). either way i do enjoy this router for the most part and would recommend it to other people.
Summary: My main concern when shopping for a router was whether I would get a strong signal throughout the house. My internet hookup is in a far corner on the second floor, which is the farthest away from the living room on the first floor.
Summary: Be prepared to do a bit of configuring and tinkering with the settings if you buy this. once you do you will get a decent enough product with some good features. Remember it is WD's baby steps on the networking arena .
Pros: - it just works and a decent uptimes with good wireless connectivity - Dual band is useful and the second band works well with my nexus 7 (2013) and office laptop - Data speeds are decent in 2.4 and pretty fast in 5 - I have hooked up my seagate ext hard drive(1TB ) which has my movies,songs and ...
Cons: - you will have to reboot it once in a while(it has become pretty rare after i got my configs rt) - the Fast track QOS is virtually unusable. if you turn it on it will start dropping connections(my advice: turn it off) - the blue light is a bit distracting - had to set my modem to static ip to av...

What i Like - it just works and a decent uptimes with good wireless connectivity - Dual band is useful and the second band works well with my nexus 7...
