Excerpt: For some reason this wasn't as fun as I thought it was going to be. it took us roughly 4-5 hours to figure out how to set this thing up. It could be our network but regardless I'm giving it a 3/5.
Summary: Overall, I'm underwhelmed by this router. The signal strength on the 5GHz bandwidth is low, limiting range. Boosting the power does not seem to help. It occasionally crashes, but that appears to be tomatoUSB bugs.
Pros: Dual band, reasonable speeds, small, great range
Excerpt: Worked for a few hours but then it (partially) failed. All servers (FTP, SAMBA, VPN) are dead from both internal and external addresses. Intermittently loses connectivity with WAN. Over the past year about 40% of all routers I have set up (12+) have been DOA or defective within a year.
Excerpt: Purchased an RT-N66U to replace an old Belkin. Was surprised and pleased with the excellent coverage range and reliability, especially on the 5GHz band. Am disappointed with the USB functions (printer and shared hard drive).
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection
Firmware of shoddy quality , disregard to security. Form prevails over function
20 August 2012
Summary: Summary: device has 5 star potential but as of now I rate it 3 because of shoddy firmware quality (much worse than Tomato that it clearly originated from), disregard to security in firmware and form prevailing over function in physical design. Not recommended for business deployment.
Summary: First a little background about myself. I've been doing IT work for 10 years. From networking to server. I'm a CCNA so I know basic to mid level networking. I was previously using the ASUS RT-N16 (was running DDWRT on it).
Summary: I really wanted to be able to keep this router as range and speed were great and it handled all of my network traffic efficiently. The issue that caused me to send it back was its lack of true UPnP support.
