Very unhappy with it.

Brian A., Newegg

  • Pros: Super easy to install custom firmware on.
  • Cons: Whenever it meets any amount of interference, link speed drops like a rock. The router itself lowers its transmit rate to crazy low levels whenever it thinks there's interference, whether there's enough to warrant it or not. This happens randomly, with the latest firmware version, and with custom firmware.

Router with great potential compromised by poor signal reception ...

  • Summary: Bought this WNR3500L for wireless network extension in the home (using WDS or Repeater-Bridge types of setup). The router has great potential: high-power CPU, large amount of RAM and Flash memory, great choices of 3rd-party firmware (DD-WRT, TomatoUSB), USB support. Unfortunately, the router has really poor signal reception which severely degrades application throughput and response-time performance, rendering it unsuitable for my intended application and likely a poor...

Very easy setup.

  • Summary: I was up and running in less than 10 minutes. Set up with Windows 7 was more intuitive than Vista. (I have one of each) However, I suspect this is more attributable to the operating systems than the product. Once they were running, it worked equally well on both.

  • Summary: Out of the box, seemed to go great. Windows XP Pro and Windows 7 computers both connected wirelessly and network set up in less than 30 minutes. Next day, internet didn't work (wired or wireless). Disconnect Router, internet works fine. Windows 7 laptop "saw" external hard drive plugged in without a problem. XP machines couldn't find it. Tech support couldn't solve it, issued RMA and are replacing unit. Haven't received it yet.

Don't think about it

  • Summary: Performance is o.k., but irritating flashing lights, no way to totally disable WPS, partially through PIN only. The support community, "June" is great, but still couldn't fix the display/WPS. Get a router without WPS, which now I find out, is vulnerable to hack.

Lots of install issues

Ian, FutureShop

  • Summary: I never expected this, i was ready to toss this thru the window! Fist PC with Vista directly wired took 2.5 hours to install and that included time spent with my provider. Second PC via wireless again Vista took 2 hours to install. Third PC after 3.5 hours was about to be stomped on untill i decided to check a 4th PC with windows 7 and it took 2 minutes. I installed Windows 7 on the 3rd PC and after 3.5 hours of running an upgrade to 7 was connected in a few minutes.
