Nice Entry level AC router

Ben H., Newegg
3 November 2014
  • Summary: If you need a cheap 5Ghz or AC solution, this is nice. If you need something more reliable, go for something better.
  • Pros: Cost. Dual Band. AC capable. Nice having 2.4 and 5Ghz w A/B/N/AC options.

Terrible Router. Wireless is ok and so was setup

FRod, Amazon
16 October 2014
  • Summary: Terrible Router. Wireless is ok and so was setup. Wasted so much time trying to fix it. Could access files from OUYA/XBMC install but would disconnect at random moments upon scanning or playing a movie. Plugged my old 5 year old router and everything worked perfect again.

Poor signal, constant crashes

Jim L., Newegg
14 October 2014
  • Pros: Looked cool. Works well if your devices are in the same room... External antenna was easy to position. Gigabit ports? I'm really trying...
  • Cons: Constantly crashed- most likely due to subpar firmware. Very limted features. Signal strength on both bands 2.5 and 5Ghz were disappointing.
