Review of NBG5715

Geek_450, Amazon
30 December 2013
  • Summary: HD Media Networks are becoming all of the rage now. However, they can consume a lot of bandwidth and without the right equipment in place you are setting up a pretty poor network. Truth be told, there are very few routers available on the market that are truly suitable for a media network. The NBG5715 Dual-Band Wireless N900 Media Router is one of them which claims that it can deliver the goods, but does it live up to its promise? Let’s take a look.

Nice upgrade for me!

J_finley2003, Amazon

  • Summary: Ordered this Router to upgrade my ZyXEL NBG-419N router. The range is great, and the problems with the NBG-419N were solved with this simple upgrade. I have an Xbox 360 with the Dual-Band Wireless Adapter, and the Gaming experience while connected to the 5Ghz band, is as advertised. Used to have it wired with an Ethernet cable, but it always (somehow) seemed a little laggy when playing games like Gears of War 3 or any Call of Duty game.

Sweet Speeed

  • Summary: I now recommend this router to all my family and friends when asked what they should get. Its got great range. I have aluminum roofing and I still can get out of the house and get a good signal, not great but good enough that it doesnt affect my internet speed. So if you do want a change from your old router, this will not disappoint you.
  • Pros: I officially jumped ship from Linksys/Cisco! This router is the bomb! I only use the wireless for laptop/cell phone/ tablet ect, and I have yet to lose any signal strength that interfers with the internet. As with any router transfering files wirelessly is a pain. The wired portion which is attached to a Zyxel 16 port gig switch, I average approximatly 90mbs! On really good days 105mbs! The bad days approximatly 60mbs. If you want a reliable router this is it! The set...
  • Cons: humm...I am just being picky now. Yes, the original firm ware had some annoying bugs like not displaying the entire menu and forceing you to reload the page to get it to display right. Changing the time zone/state just doesnt work on either firmware or is not supported. You cant permanantly turn off a radio. I dont use the 5g band. I turn it off and it stays off until the router recycles itself (Which is actually not a con) so you just have to deal with it. I have had...

Upgraded from a D-Link 4500 Gaming Router.

temp a skorpio "Bob", Amazon
16 January 2012
  • Summary: I used a D-Link DGL 4500 for a few years with a couple of high end gaming rigs. My wireless gave out, which my daughter uses for her iPhone and a laptop. So I decided to upgrade. The NBG 5715 is an excellent dual band router, compare the specs. Features I really like: easy of setup; on/off button for wireless; two (2) USB connections for printer/scanner/exterior network storage; dual band speed, manufacture quality; firmware stability.

works fine

Thundergod, Amazon

  • Summary: Hooked it up a couple of days ago. No problems with it. Haven't asked it to do any advanced stuff; it's just been acting as a router, both wired and wireless, and haven't had any issues. I don't do any sophisticated things with it though, so can't speak about any of the advanced things some people do with routers. It currently has two computers connected to it (wired) and the wireless works with my laptop and both Droid smartphones in my household.

works

Jeff N., Newegg
6 November 2011
  • Pros: Worked right out of the box. Router config screen in browser seems easy enough. A lot of options that I wouldn't ever find a need to mess with (but I'm sure some poeple would) are there for the tweaking. I like that it has a physical on/off switch on the unit for the wireless signal. So, you can easily turn off the wirless and still have the router functions operable. I had a wireless router before that didn't provide any means of turning off the wireless transmitter ...
