5 out of 5 eggsAWESOME

Pros: Easy to set up. Great range. Can get signal not only upstairs but in the front and back yard now too.

Cons: Pricey but you get what you pay for I guess

5 out of 5 eggsLove It

Pros: Easy to set u, takes just minutes. Works great. My old router was not cutting so I looked into an extender. Most places said to update the router first. So I did and now I don't need the extender. Can even get signal on my phone next door in the basement. Very impressed.

Cons: No cons so far.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat WiFi Router

Pros: Easy to install and make functional. Once available, each laptop, printer, DVR and cell phone sync'd up without any issues. Download speeds were verified as being very close to direct wire connection to the laptops. Easiest WiFi router to installed in my experience.

Cons: None whatsoever.

3 out of 5 eggsOk - but not great

Pros: Easy setup and a good range of options (guest network, dd-wrt support).

Cons: Range. Even 10-15 feet away - unobstructed, can't get full connectivity. And if I move to another room, it gets worse. Not exactly what I expected from a device that claims whole house coverage.

Other Thoughts: I've purchased many TrendNet products (4 gigabit switches and an access point) and haven't experienced any issues. This product is used to extend my FiOS network, but the signal from the primary router and the access point are better than from this router. Sitting literally in front of it and the access point that's located in an upstairs bedroom has a stronger signal. Something wrong when an access point that's 50 feet away and has to go through multiple walls is stronger than your new AC router!

Manufacturer Response:


Please ensure the router has been updated with the latest firmware update and then reset. Try using a different channel to see if the issue was caused by Interference on the specific channel it was using. Please also check the placement. Try to place it as high as possible and avoid placing it near anything that would cause radio frequency interference. To take advantage of 802.11ac standards please ensure your wireless devices also support 802.11ac. If you need assistance with the router please mail and we’ll have someone assist you as soon as possible. Please include a link to this review.

4 out of 5 eggsSo far so Good!

Pros: Bought this router after reading reviews and comparing features. Best bang for the buck. Ability to use DD-WRT Open Source firmware sold me. Adds extra features and lots of support/documentation. And can increase power if needed to cover whole house & yard. Just what I needed in a top-of-the-line home router.

Cons: None to speak of. Works as advertised.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very fast speeds (of course these would be limited if you have a slow modem)
Passwords/usernames/router ip address printed on the router itself so you never have to go searching online for defaults.
Shipping was very quick, around 4 business days for standard shipping.
Dual networks (2.4 and 5.0) maximize speeds for everyone who connects.
No trouble connecting 8 computers, all HD streaming live games to Twitch.

Cons: Not cheap (but worth it if you ask me)

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome router with great speeds

Pros: No complaints, picked this router to replace my slower AC router and this thing performs ALOT better and faster..My range has easily improved, previously I wasn't able to get any wireless connection in the office room but now I get exceptional connection. speeds are great, have not experience any issues online gaming through the PS4. installation was a breeze with the already encrypted wireless settings, just replaced the old router and I was up and running in no time..

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: So far I'm happy with this wireless upgrade

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: So far so good, easy to update firmware and just renamed my 2.4 and 5GHz networks. Changed admin password to access settings. Good speed so far.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: I did some research on AC routers before purchasing this one. It seems to be the best bang for your buck. Other comparable high-end routers are in the $200 range.

2 out of 5 eggsDisappointing router

Pros: Nice looking router, easy to setup.

Cons: Very disappointing. I bought this router to replace my old Linksys, and it simply doesn't match up in term of performances and features to my old router.
Most disappointing is the IPV6 support: it's very basic, so even thought the spec say it has support of ipv6, do not buy this product if ipv6 support is important for you.

Other Thoughts: Bottom line: If you need a router that is easy to setup this might be a good option for you. But otherwise look for another options.
