DO NOT BUY UNLESS YOU VERIFY WD PROVIDED A SW FIX FOR WIFI DROPS
22 November 2014
Summary: There is only one problem with this device, but it is a big one. Everything is great regarding the advertised features, if only the WiFi worked without dropping out every few minutes. I didn't take the time to investigate exactly why this might be happening, there are lots of folks out there with theories but I simply wanted something that works.
Summary: DO NOT BUY. I wanted to like this router. It worked great for a few months but then it became a nightmare. Randomly losing internet connection, DNS problems, terrible wifi range. It's been discontinued and the last firmware update is over a year old. You WILL have issues with it eventually so save yourself some time and a whole lot of aggravation and just pass on this one.

Summary: this is a great router, wasnt sure about a western digital router they are new to this type of hardware (at least as far as i know) due to cost i try to ride the second wave of tech so i chose 450x2 mbs hardare instead of ac. the hartware was easy to install and the software aleit a tad bloated, but it has to be as it is feature rich~western digital has done a wonderful job and i got a 1tb (they offer 2tb as well) nas to go with my new speedy router..
Our signal is crap now and I am constantly getting 'network error

Summary: Well, we have to go get a booster. Our signal is crap now and I am constantly getting 'network error.' I'll walk across the room and my signal disappears, flips over to 3G and is all around squirrelly. Not happy.
Summary: At first it was a little tricky to get set up to get on line but after figuring it out it works great. We can get on line faster and we have several devices that has been used at once and it works great. I would recommend this to anyone.
Summary: I bought this router used to replace a new but cheaper device that couldn't even provide coverage in our 1800 s.f. house. This one does it all and more with more features than I'll ever use or appreciate for that matter. The only reason that it isn't rated 5 stars is because it was kind of tricky to set up, perhaps because it was previously installed. I had trouble getting the password to the software configuration reset.
This is a great router. I was using a Netgear WNDR 3700v1

Summary: This is a great router. I was using a Netgear WNDR 3700v1. I was looking for a replacement so I could give the Netgear to my son. I had it running for a little over a week when all of a sudden we had NO INTERNET. I was sure it was this new router. I was ready to return it. Well, that was the same night that Charter had a massive outage over Most of Wisconsin, Minnesota and a few other states. The next day everything was back up. The Charter outage was well documented.
Summary: After reading through all the reviews, I decided to choose this router. The price of this compared to its capabilities is incredible. Be forewarned, I do not have any complicated needs in my wireless system. I have two laptops, two cell phones and one tablet that are used regularly over wireless and a PS3 that is used with an ethernet cable. I plan in the future to use the printing options but at this time have not yet.
