Summary: Ultimately my cons were kind of picky. This router supported a skype call last night with no drops or major freezing, and I am running multiple devices on it already. Very happy with the product and the price I got it for.
Pros: - Works at advertised speeds - Physically not very large, easy to hide - USB port on rear to act as network drive - Signal strength sufficient
Cons: - Out of box was only set to 150 mbps (ultimately speed is decided by your carrier) - Signal not the best. Still much better than previous AT&T router though. - Stand feels a little flimsy
Summary: This is an update 4.5 years after ordering from this router from Newegg. It has performed flawlessly. I prefer to use Cat 6 connectors, but when friends stay with me, the wireless capability is perfect. Now that I have a Smart TV, the wireless capability is really useful.
Summary: Much like the WNDR3700 in signal range and speed, yet half the price. Wait you say, it doesn`t have a 5GHz band! So what? I had a WNDR3700v4, and 5G was useless. It would lose the connection randomly, and my phone would revert back to the 2.4 GHz band.
Pros: Strong signal throughout my 1300 square ft home, and at least a fair signal at the far reaches of my 13,000 square ft lot. v2 is faster than v1 with a stronger signal. Newegg is shipping v2 while some other online retailers are sticking you with the old one.
Cons: Deleting the WPS pin is necessary for security, yet the light stays on after doing so. If you turn it off after deleting the pin, your devices won`t connect.
