Could be improved some, connection to WD bridges not reliable.

A. Ilie, Amazon
22 February 2015
  • Summary: Seems to work fine. Interface is rather sparse and slow. Got it to work with two WD bridges, and the connection is not as reliable as I hoped: after a power outage, they don't seem to connect properly, and I had to reset the bridges every time, even though I tried connecting both manually (WPA key) or through WPS. It turns out the solution (after a lot of Google searching) is to set the router's 5GHz channel to 40.

Lacks Features - Auto Logout Sucks

Newegg
19 February 2015
  • Summary: Get a more evolved router where the programmers maybe actually use it. One of the LAN ports burned out shortly after I got it.
  • Pros: Generally Works
  • Cons: Lots of weird stuff happens. It constantly says "You have successfully logged out". Yes it totally sucks that it logs you out every five minutes and that wonderful auto feature for me overrides everything else. It's just totally annoying that you have to keep logging back in when you're working on something. The timeout s/b settable. You cannot block a MAC if you allow guest access and that MAC comes in as a guest. Another problem is it defaults to no security on Gues...

I don't recommend

Ryle, Amazon
19 February 2015
  • Summary: Didn't work right out of the box. The power light just blinked indefinitely. It is supposed to blink when it is updating firmware or doing a self test. However, it never proceeded past that mode. Additionally, the instruction manual was pathetic. I had to go online (with my cheap router) to find more detailed instructions. Don't take a chance on this router.

  • Pros: Worked for a little bit
  • Cons: After 1 year, and of course the warranty I got the blinking light. I called tech support and the guy tried trouble shooting and then said it was hosed. He also said that WD was getting out of the wifi business so I couldn't get a replacement, but if I called back in they might be able to get me some other WD products as payment. I bought another router since I couldn't wait for down internet. I then called back and a new tech support guy says oh we do still have modem...

Great Product, Price, and Features

John N Moye, Amazon
3 December 2014
  • Summary: I installed this unit in my wireless system that contains many different devices. The installation was easy and flexible, the reception was great, and the 5ghz band worked beautifully, where others were problematic. I also love the dashboard and software. I wish it was bridgeable, but we can't have everything, especially for this price. Highly recommended.

WD AC1300

Randall B., Newegg
19 November 2014
  • Summary: The firmware issue can easily be solved by following the companies instructions. My unit also came out of the box with the flashing blue power light. Unbiased and without panic I followed the instructions and haven't had a problem since. I have 15-18 devices running on this router. Anything from Chromecasts to cellphones to Xbox's to printers to Ipad's. Not to mention 4 P.C.'s as well.. The router operates flawlessly, without any drops in service.
  • Pros: no drops. easy interface.
  • Cons: range LED display

easy set up but not reliable

Dong Su, Amazon
19 November 2014
  • Summary: I have this router less then a year, easy set up but not reliable. Need reboot often, finally with a blinking blue light and won't reset. Stay away from WD router, buy you router from a well know router maker.
