2 out of 5 eggs2.4 GHz radio is dying after less than two months

Pros: - Good value
- Simple web interface
- OpenWRT support

Cons: - 2.4 GHz radio unreliable after <2 months
- LED lights unintuitive
- Cheap (but sturdy) housing

Other Thoughts: This product had initially surpassed my expectations as a powerful albeit no-frills router. It exceeds the range and throughput of my Asus RT-N66U, making it a worthy upgrade as long as the 5 GHz channel does not degrade or die like the 2.4 GHz channel already has.

2 out of 5 eggsNot quite yet

Pros: Easy installation.

Cons: I changed to this router with a promo code (79.99+tax) over a NETGEAR - N750 (99.99) from Best Buy, which I returned. I was interested in the 802.11ac, as we have 4 iPhone, 2 iPads and 1 MacBook on the house.

Sporadically, the sign is intermittent, as many other reviews reports, but my problem is that it take too long to connect to the 5Ghz band. In most of the Apple products, most of the time. My Windows based PC is ok with it. Guests on Android are fine too...

In the end: regret, regret, regret... Should have kept the N750...

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome speeds, great budget gigabit router

Pros: Best price per performance on wifi speeds
Gigabit ports
External antennas (don't know why but I hate "no antenna" routers)

Cons: DNS server issues with League of legends
5ghz band has short range
Limited advanced options
Not dd-wrt compatible

Other Thoughts: I made sure to use this router for a couple months before I gave a review. I played with all the settings possible. I am really enjoying using this router. One thing that irked me was tat the range of this 5ghz band seemed weak, Though I haves tested many dual band routers and found the same thing. I know there are explanations for this all over the Internet but I'm not going get into it.

Another thing was that I play league of legends and couldn't for the life of me log into the server and the riots support pages recommended doing port forwarding and changing DNS manually to 8.8.8.8. Although that worked, I was determined to track down the issue because it didn't ever do that with my old router. Long story short I tracked it down to checking the option "use these default DNS servers and everything works now. Other than this, this router would be a 5-egg router for people who don't play league of legends. Wifi network speeds are impressive! Hope this helps someone out there! Enjoy!

5 out of 5 eggsQuite sufficient

Pros: - 2.4ghz range is extremely good with average throughput (there are several other 2.4ghz networks in my building)
- 5ghz range is average with extremely good throughput
- Guest networks consistently consistently work well after firmware update
- Guest network QoS works well and limits bandwidth correctly
- Router interface is easy to use
- Port forwarding is straight forward
- DHCP address reservation works well
- Gigabit ethernet ports across the boardm

Cons: - When dealing with the router web interface, the page refreshes every 15 seconds or so to update information and clears out all partially completed fields on the page. This can be frustrating if you're tabbing back and forth to copy/paste MAC addresses/IP addresses/etc.

Other Thoughts: I finally got fed up with all of the disruptions with my old 2.4ghz wifi network. Though I never experienced any disconnects, I did frequently experience reduced speeds and very high latency. I attributed this to the -many- other 2.4ghz networks in my condo building causing interference with my network. After trying every channel and channel width combination on my Buffalo WZR-600DHP, I purchased two of these routers; one for each end of my unit and now exclusively use the 5ghz band and I am very happy with the performance of my wifi network again.

I received several @m*zon gift cards for Christmas so, unfortunately, I was not able to purchase these routers from Newegg. I did want to give Newegg and the Newegg community the benefit of the review though. Bottom line: I'd recommend this router as a fast, economical, simultaneous dual band option. I've only had the routers going for a week so far. I will report back if there are any problems going forward.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid economical router

Pros: Dual band, 802.11ac, hardware NAT, can run OpenWRT

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: I'm not sure I understand all the poor reviews of this router here on Newegg. I replaced an older D-Link DIR-825 router running DD-WRT as I wanted something more modern that also support 802.11ac. This fit the bill and is so far rock solid. The first thing I did was update to the latest firmware. I don't use its USB connector so can't speak to its performance or functionality. The UI isn't as comprehensive as DD-WRT, but gets the job done.

Range for both 2.4 and 5GHz is better than my previous router. I'm not seeing any of the disconnects on either wired or wireless connections that others seem to be having, and over the holidays I had more than 14 devices connected to it. Perhaps people don't know how to configure networking equipment?

2 out of 5 eggsTrouble with iPhones and iPads

Pros: Outstanding Range, Throughput and High power.
High speed connectivity for 11ac notebooks from Dell and Asus.
Works great with Samsung phones and tablets

Cons: My wife and Daughter''s iPhones and iPad mini's for some reason do not connect all the time. I used to use a TP-LINK WDR3600 and the devices connected with the 3600 all the time. With the Archer C7 Apple devices definitely have an issue. Also there is an issue with Belkin @TV.

Other Thoughts: I went to the TP=LINK website and saw that there is firmware that should resolve the issue with Apple devices. I upgraded the firmware but the problem is still there. Unfortunately I will need to return this router.

1 out of 5 eggsWorst router ever

Pros: cheap but not worth it

Cons: I bought TPlink AC1750 recently(a month ago). I am not very happy with this product. I have the following issues
1. WIFI is intermittent, I can see my laptop loosing wifi connection too often(3-4 times /hour). This was not the case with my old router.
2. 5.8 gigabit range is very short. I can't get the signal to my 2nd floor bedroom
3. IPAD mini can't connect to 5.8 G band.
4. 2.4 G will show poor range. My 2nd floor bedroom will show only two bars on my Moto X phone.
5. Overall data rate is poor.
6. If more devices are connected, the data rate drops down.
I should have read the review before buying this garbage.

Other Thoughts: New Egg should stop selling this router. It has multiple issues. Let the TPLink retest all their router before selling.

5 out of 5 eggsOne of the best

Pros: Great range, great speeds, great interface. All around a great router.

I haven't experienced any of the issues detailed in other reviews; I've had the router on for ~3 months now with no power cycles or reboots, and I have not experienced any speed degradation or any other issues.

Cons: Some of the reviews suggest that some units are faulty (some users experience many problems but others experience none). I purchased this from a different retailer, and have not had any issues with it - but be warned.

Other Thoughts: I would absolutely recommend this router.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat router V2

Pros: Two USBs, giga Ethernet, 2.4 and 5GHz, additional guest wifi. For me this was really a plug and play set up. No hassles no dropped wifi or any of the sort. Then did an update with the new firmware and the only thing I could notice is a different gui for router management.

I do not use the ftp services so I don't know if it's any good, and I do not use the usb ports, so I can not comment on that. What I can comment is that the wifi speed for me is great for all of my devices (two laptops, PC, three phones). with constant use. The only bottle neck is the internet speed itself (Comcast gives me 25 - 30mbps on one or 30 devices),

Cons: This may or may not be a con, but I set up my two wifi signals, one for 2.4, and the other 5. I would prefer for my 2.4 to be ONLY N, but that is not allowed. For the 2.4 it's mixed BG, or mixed BGN. For the 5 GHz, I would want ONLY AC, but the options are A/N Mixed, or A/N/AC.

I have only N, and AC devices....

Other Con, which is wired, I have my WPA2 2.4GHz wifi, and I decided to provide everyone else free wifi. My free open wifi channel gets stronger signal, and I can see that one from further away then my 5GHz AC signal (Have a AC cell phone...)

Other Thoughts: Would buy this device again for anyone. On a personal note I keep my electronics inside Cigar boxes, this router fit in PERFECTLY in a Pardon Cigars 26 count 7000. I'm sure there are other cigar boxes, but this one is perfect with light wood.
