Good

Danny R. Leger "Powercat", Amazon
10 June 2013
  • Summary: Very good, range is a little less than I expected, so I may get a booster. The documentation was a little lacking, but once I got it working it was a great jump up from my old router.

Solid performer once initial issues were resolved

Yang Zhou "Yang Zhou", Amazon
9 April 2013
  • Summary: I bought this router off of DailySteals for about half the price it normally retails for and it's been rock solid for me after some major initial issues were resolved. (more on that later) Even at its regular pricing you are getting some pretty serious hardware compared to the competition (look up...

19 February 2013
  • Summary: had to have a lot of customer support to set it up. do not yet have the external hard drives set up on the zyxel but that is because I have not taken the time to do it . I will have to call customer support and take the time on the phone to go thru the process.

Fast and Reliable

Ken P., Newegg
2 November 2012
  • Summary: Wish I could set it up to connect to the hard drive connected to the USB port remotely. Maybe it can be done, but I cannot figure it out.
  • Pros: Worked right out of the box. The "beginner/easy" setting allows ANYONE to setup this router to work. The Form Factor is what EVERY router should be. Antenna locations and ethernet connections really are convenient. On-Off switch for lights Push button connection Have not had to reset one time.
  • Cons: The firmware that came with the unit was out of date. The new firmware is a big improvement, BUT still needs more refining. The USB port connection for an external drive does not consistently work and the software you install to link to it is wonky/noisy. Cannot turn off the sound.

Very Nice Router

Kenneth M. Phillips "RaidV92C", Amazon
11 October 2012
  • Summary: I got this router for a couple of reasons. First I wanted one that was true dual band and secondly I really like the form factor. It stands up with the antennae going straight up and the ports are essentially on what would be the bottom if it laid flat (it doesn't). So the antennae are a higher.

  • Summary: Length:: 5:48 Mins A Comparison of Routers (*Go to end of Review for Issues I've encountered): Routers in general are some of the most finicky pieces of hardware on any network...or rather wireless routers.

Zyxel NBG5715

T. H., Newegg
5 January 2012
  • Summary: If unpleasant things happen I will post follow up review to later. VPN feature can be better. And IPV6?
  • Pros: When I took the unit out of box it felt good. Good build quality, substantial weight, etc. Setting up was a breeze. Went on the air within an hour with both radio enabled, USB storage device attached. This router will only get better with refined f/w improvement. Definitely it is based on OpenWrt...
  • Cons: Pricy for now.

Awesome Router

Bruce J., Newegg
4 January 2012
  • Summary: Overall this router is def Pro ... As long as you dont have issues like i did... this router should be 5 Eggs+ .... BUt if you run into troubles like me... be ready for hell .... I suggest start off by Renewing your IP ... and Clearing the old one... and doing all the basics...
  • Pros: Is is a Follow up to the 1 egg rating i gave... I I went though the dos prompt and configured the router manually.. and I finally got it working... I must say this us a beast of a router.. Speeds are at a constant 405mps+ ... I l never lose service anywhere inside the house.. and i can pick up th...
  • Cons: I still must take a egg off for having to go through hell trying to configure this thing ... I almost Rmmaed it.. but i wouldnt give up .... It literally took me almost 3 days to find out the problem ... If i was some Half wit Computer noob... i would have sent ti back already ... So Sorry though...

Zyxel comes through in the end

Kevin B., Newegg
8 November 2011
  • Summary: The nice folks at Tech support are forwarding my recommendations to the design people for possible new products that better fit this market niche. In the End, the folks at Zyxel have taken care of me and I can now recommend the company. They are very responsive to the customer.
  • Pros: Speed of throughput and Ease of setup
  • Cons: I only marked it down because of the design of the VPN. Not really what one would expect from a router base for home use. As with any product, meeting a price point involves compromise. At the price point this seems like a strong product. I can find no other that offers VPN capabilities with usb ...
