2 out of 5 eggsDon't waste your time

This review is from: EnGenius ESR900 Dual Band 2.4/5 GHz Wireless N900 Cloud Gigabit Router with USB Port and EnShare

Pros: Decent speeds at 5ghz

Cons: Low Range, slow 2.4Ghz speeds, sharing files are useless

Other Thoughts: Bought this to replace my TrendNet N300 router. Wanted the better speeds, but that ended up being a waste, really wish I could return this thing.

first off the 2.4Ghz range is pathetic. In the home office, the PC there used to be 4/5 bars at about 80Mbs with the TrnedNet, with this it has gone down to 3/5 Bars and 65 Mbs. Pathetic.

The 5Ghz, is fine, again as long as you're close. The Range on this is not good at all, going to the same Office on 5Ghz drops down to 4/5 bars.

Sharing Files, not worth it either. It only shares a portion, and getting it to share a directory with more than 20 files in it, forget it.

Overall, not happy, I would not recommend this router.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Swan,


We appreciate your time in posting your comments and feedback.


Slow wireless connectivity can be caused by various factors. Perhaps changing some settings might help your connection. Please scan the area for other wireless signals and change the wireless channel that is set on the ESR900 to a channel with less congestion. On the 2.4GHz radio try setting the channel bandwidth to 20MHz only and please make sure that the TX power is set to 100%. We also recommend that you set the wireless security to WPA2-PSK(AES) and to update the firmware to the latest version.

Please allow us to do some troubleshooting with you. You may reach us through our number at 1-888-735-7888 (Monday – Friday, 8:00am – 4:00pm PDT) or e-mail us at support@engeniustech.com (Saturday, Sunday 8am - 4pm PDT). Our support team would be glad to be of service to you.

Thank you for your patience and we apologize for the inconvenience.



Sincerely,

Engenius Customer Support Team

4 out of 5 eggsgreat for what you pay for still some bugs

This review is from: EnGenius ESR900 Dual Band 2.4/5 GHz Wireless N900 Cloud Gigabit Router with USB Port and EnShare

Pros: Great speed and dual band.

Cons: The streaming usb on router ins not compatible with my hard drive. Needs better Indicator LEDs.

Other Thoughts: Setup has a easy use design that can get you a basic setup, but if you want some advanced features you have to do a little digging. That still was not that hard to do. Does look like a smoke detector.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Features For The Money

This review is from: EnGenius ESR900 Dual Band 2.4/5 GHz Wireless N900 Cloud Gigabit Router with USB Port and EnShare

Pros: I recently reviewed the EnGenius ESR1200 and this product is nearly identical. The primary differences are that this ESR900 offers a potentially faster 2.4Ghz band (450 vs 300Mbps) and a faster 5Ghz band if using wireless N (450 vs 300Mbps). If you are however using the new 802.11ac standard the ESR1200 might be a better option as it supports the new standard and the ESR900 does not.

Although nothing to write home about, the 5G band connection speed is adequate. Using a Netgear WNDR4100 450Mbps adapter the connection speed fluctuates between 162 and 243Mbps. Compared to the steady 108Mbps I experienced on the ESR1200 5G band this is a tangible improvement. Overall there is about a 25 foot distance, 2 walls, and a stairwell between the router and my PC.

Aesthetically, this device bears greater resemblance to a smoke detector or a Roomba than a router. This could be beneficial for mounting as it's more likely to blend in with neutral wall or ceiling fixtures than some of the colorful/monolithic designs from other manufacturers.

The device seems well ventilated with vents on the bottom, sides, and above the RJ45 ports. This should offer some degree of flexibility in placement of the device. I've had heat issues with multiple access points in the past but so far this device seems cool or at least barely warm to the touch.

This router offers a plethora of premium features for a relatively low price. I own a Netgear WNDR4500 which is basically the same router on paper but costs more than double what this model does.

I experimented with EnShare on the ESR1200 but hadn't had a chance to use the EnShare Mobile app until reviewing this model. I have to admit I was skeptical of this app but have been fairly impressed by it. I already use a media sharing app on my phone called subsonic which works wonderfully but requires a small subscription fee. This app being free with the router is a nice perk. My Netgear router has a media sharing service as well but does not have an associated app to use on mobile devices so EnGenius wins in this category for me.

Cons: With a noticeably faster 5G band I was hoping to see similar improvements with the 2.4Ghz band as well. This hasn't been my experience however. Connecting with the same adapter as before I was only able to retain a 156Mbps connection on the 2.4Ghz band. In fairness, there is significantly more 2.4Ghz wireless traffic in this area which no doubt plays a role in connection integrity. I did however test all channels and 156Mbps was the fastest stable connection I was able to achieve. The ESR1200 I reviewed was at an equal disadvantage and still managed nearly 300Mbps on this band.

My Netgear WNDR4500 incorporates a DC power brick which connects to your power strip with a standard ATX power supply AC cord. The ESR900 (like the ESR1200), however, uses a standard AC/DC adapter with wall prongs built into it. I prefer NETGEAR's approach to this as plugging the large AC/DC adapter directly into a power strip gets in the way of outlets around it.

This device has no lights for indicating individual wired connections.

Rubber feet would have been a plus as the router is light weight and slides around easily if not wall mounted.

Other Thoughts: If you happen to be deciding between this and the EnGenius ESR1200, the decision is simple. If you use an adapter which utilizes 802.11ac (or plan to upgrade to it in the future) than the ESR1200 should be your choice. Otherwise, I would select the ESR900 as its 5G band seems superior for non wireless-ac devices. And while my experience with the 2.4Ghz band wasn't excellent it was still adequate and certainly offers greater headroom if you can achieve a clean enough signal.

My primary router is a Netgear WNDR4500 N900. On paper it is very similar to the ESR900. Both are dual band and support a maximum connection speed of 450Mbps per band. Both feature 4 1Gbps wired ports in addition to the WAN port. Both feature a USB port for media sharing (WNDR4500 has 2), and both feature a media sharing service which is accessible locally or via the internet. These are what I would consider to be the premium features of these two routers and they are basically the same.

However, the WNDR4500 seems to offer a substantially stronger signal on both the 2.4 and 5Ghz bands. Throughput also seems to be superior on the Netgear model. In the few weeks I've used the ESR900 it has required 1 hard reset, whereas the WNDR4500 has never required one in nearly a year of constant operation. That being said, the price of the Netgear WNDR4500 is more than double that of this EnGenius ESR900. Quality and performance come at a price and the ESR900 sacrifices some in order to provide a nice set of features at a good price. I prefer my WNDR4500 overall, but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this ESR900 to anyone on a budget and in need of the features it has to offer.

4 out of 5 eggsEngenius odd Mixture #3

This review is from: EnGenius ESR900 Dual Band 2.4/5 GHz Wireless N900 Cloud Gigabit Router with USB Port and EnShare

Pros: This is the final review on my part...the firmware update from 1.01 to 1.10 has resolved the slow page load issues I was experiencing. The router has zero issues with stability, the machine never restarts unless I perform a reset and al connections have been stable and reliable.
Qos appears to be working just fine, youtube videos load immediately and playback without stuttering or dropping frames as far as I can tell.
Range is excellent and better than my old Netgear N600 router by a fair distance.
Signal strength is excellent and throughput is either the same or better than my old N600 as well.
This router performs flawlessly now and has no other issues I can root out. Updates are quick, timers display remaining time on reboot, reset, and are much appreciated.
This router has an odd mix of tools available and in a rather weird drop down menu style left panel on the gui page. These tools are ok to use if you have some skill sets with networking but could get you into some trouble if you do not know what you are doing.

Cons: No cons I can find now except one quirk!

Upon performing the firmware update...my 2 blue LED's for 2.4 and 5 Ghz wireless radios both flash in unison and continuously. I can't tell which one has traffic on it nor when the traffic is moving through the router. Prior to the firmware flash...both LED's were illuminated when the respective radio was enabled and only flashed when traffic was present...now both flash together all the time. This is frustrating when trying to determine who is on your router and what band they are on unless you log in to see what devices are connected and even then, you may have connected devices without descriptors to ascertain whom is connected.

Other Thoughts: All in all, this is a very nice router that has excellent range, performance is reliable and stable, connections are rock solid and stable and the router does enhance/extend the range for the 2.4 ghz wireless by about 15% range wise and about 10% on the 5 GHz radios compared to my old Netgear N600 WNDR 3700 v1 and with a reduced price at newegg.com...at $76 this is a bargain/steal.
I have no problem recommending this for anybody wanting to upgrade the current network hardware, the shape lends itself to ceiling or wall mount and is small enough to allow to sit on an unused corner of a file cabinet or desk!
This is a solid entry for the affordable networking hardware for end users in a home or small business that makes upgrading a positive experience that provides tangible evidence that your upgrade was worth it.

5 out of 5 eggsIt's a 'walk-off home run' of a router

This review is from: EnGenius ESR900 Dual Band 2.4/5 GHz Wireless N900 Cloud Gigabit Router with USB Port and EnShare

Pros: I received the router and the installed firmware was 1.01 which I immediately updated to the current version, 1.10.

The unit itself is built very nicely and to the naked eye could even be mistaken for a smoke detector. In that regard, I think it would be a cinch to mount this upside down on a ceiling of your home or business, which would easily help optimize your wireless speeds by mounting the unit at a high point. It has a nice sleek white color with the inner champaigne colored ring and easily readable ports and icons. The lights on top of the unit are primarily blue, with the power light being amber. Everything else is internal to the unit, including the wireless antennas. Personally, I prefer having the internal antennas, although if your needs or requirements change, you cannot upgrade the unit with stronger antennas like you can on most of the units that have removable antennas. I really like how the firmware is laid out, along with the various splashes of purple colors and the assorted icons. I think there’s enough in there to walk an uneducated home user through the process of setting this unit up with their home network, including the wizard, but there are also quite a bit of options for the ‘advanced’ or ‘expert’ level network users out there.

Setting up the router for my home network was very easy and within minutes I was sharing my 30/4 Charter cable internet in my home wired across 2 Windows 7 Professional 64-bit workstations, a DirecTV Genie HD DVR receiver, a Xbox 360 Pro (fat), and wirelessly across 4 Android smartphones, 1 Android tablet, and a Playstation 3 (fat). The router’s speeds over GbE are excellent; using the freeware LAN Speed Test (Lite) v1.3.1 application, I achieved speeds of 712Mbps (down) and 792Mbps (up) from PC to PC using Cat5e. My WAN speeds were also excellent - with Charter I get 30Mbps minimum (down) and usually pull closer to 40-50Mbps depending on things; with the ESR900, I did get an average (over 5 tests) of 32.3Mbps (down) and 4.252Mbps (up) with a ping of 17.8ms.

Wireless performance of the unit is extraordinary, even from further distances. Using the 2.4Ghz radio, 3’ away from the router in the living room, I achieved 32.076Mbps (down) and 6.112Mbps (up) with a ping of 30.8ms and a signal strength of -46 dBm. In the bedroom, from 25’ away and through 3 walls on the same floor, I achieved 21.432Mbps (down) and 6.124Mbps (up) with a ping of 29.2ms and a signal strength of -53 dBm. On the 5Ghz radio, again 3’ away from the router in the living room, I achieved 52.55Mbps (down) and 6.022Mbps (up) with a ping of 27ms and a signal strength of -46 dBm. In the bedroom, again 25’ away and through 3 walls on the same floor, I achieved 49.336Mbps (down) and 6.074Mbps (up) with a ping of 27.8ms and a signal strength of -60 dBm. This is incredible! My ping was a little higher on both radios, but the transfer rates were identical (or better) to the GbE speeds! (See 'Other thoughts' for more Pros.)

Cons: I really have to nitpick to come up with cons of this unit. The top lights are a little bright (but they are also pretty small). I wish it had a wireless radio on/off switch, but the wireless can be disabled easily in the firmware itself. A 2nd additional USB port on the unit would be nice to have, but the lack of more than 1 isn’t really a deal-breaker.

The only other con I can come up with, as I mentioned before, is that the wireless antennas are all internal to the unit and therefore cannot be removed or upgraded. I don’t really think that’s a problem, because my testing proved that this unit has excellent radio signal coverage, but it might be an issue for people trying to get signals on different floors or in a home or office of greater size.

Some people may find the customization and configuration of the router a little lacking; I don't have a problem with it myself. It looks a little simplified, but you can dig deep and drill down and there are a lot more options underneath that don’t appear to be there on the surface.

Other Thoughts: Additional 'Pros':
The USB port is an excellent addition and makes the router also function as somewhat of a NAS/shared media unit. Testing with both an external 750GB USB 2.0 HDD and 32GB USB 2.0 thumb drive, I was able to easily stream a 1080P Blu-Ray rip without any hiccups or slowdowns on both wired and wireless devices. I also like how any connected USB devices can be browsed through not only SMB in Windows, but also web browsers as well as Windows Media Player, VLC, etc.

On each of the wireless radios, you can have up to 4 SSID’s on each (so 8 SSID’s total). On any of these tertiary SSID’s, you can set them up as Guest WiFi access which helps if you are working on cleaning up a malware infection and you need to get online to download malware definitions or applications but you don’t want to risk cross-network contamination of your healthy devices.

The router also include VPN passthrough which helps for users that work remotely from other locations, and even includes WOL (wake on LAN) functionality to remotely power on a device that supports WOL from within the router itself.

Closing thoughts:
As an educated network specialist with an Associate’s Degree in Network System Administration, I’ve worked with all sorts of equipment, and let me say that the ESR900 earns my full recommendation just as easily as a Cisco Catalyst would. It’s easy enough for inexperienced home users, but robust enough for someone like me who is more experienced with networking equipment and security, and wants more control. The performance of this router across the board is all flawless; wired, wireless it doesn't matter – this tiny little wonder takes it all and keeps up without a glitch. Even trying to bomb the unit with traffic over BitTorrent or by downloading an Ubuntu ISO on 4 devices at once, this thing just ran like a top. I was looking for a gigabit router to replace my aging Netgear WNR834B v2, and I found more than a suitable replacement – I found something that exceeds all expectations. This is the first EnGenius product that I’ve owned, and after this wonderful experience, it will definitely not be the last.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Router

This review is from: EnGenius ESR900 Dual Band 2.4/5 GHz Wireless N900 Cloud Gigabit Router with USB Port and EnShare

Pros: This is definitely a solid router that can compete with the best of em'. All of the specifications that are listed seem to be accurate and was very easy to setup. The setup wizard makes installation of this router a breeze especially since it can be setup through a wired connection or a wireless connection. This router makes it easy for your average user to get a decent router with minimal initial configuration since most of the defaults should work fine for most users. The 2.4 ghz band has an average strength/distance while the 5ghz band has s slightly shorter distance and will not be very advantageous if you plan on covering an entire house with this signal (about 1000 sq ft ranch). The simple interface does allow for a lot of customization on the router which should be more than enough for the average user. I didn't use the cloud setup much but when I tried connecting different media to the USB port it worked well and I could access the media from on the network. The router is also aesthetically pleasing because it is a nice shape that helps to hide the cables (small lip over where the cables plug in) and looks kind of like a bulky fire alarm so should be able to blend in most places.

Cons: This is not a pro/power user router, I noticed myself cringing with some of the setup options compared to what I am used to on an open wrt setup. The settings seem a bit too dumbed down for a power user even though they do allow for a lot of configuration options. Their do seem to be a lot of configuration options that are difficult to access and change due to a lot of down time (the router auto reboots when you change a setting instead of having to commit it after making multiple changes). My server seems to not play as nicely with this router as it does with my daily driver but that may have to do with the server, not just the router.

Other Thoughts: I like this router and if I didn't already have multiple more expensive/power user routers then I would happily use this as my daily driver. This router meets its advertised specs but I did have some issues when I first installed the router. When I first installed the router I just plugged everything in and went, but then it would not register my internet connection so after messing with some settings (that were a bit tough to find) I reset the router and went through the setup process provided in the instructions to the letter (I even used a timer when pausing for as long as they suggest). After the second setup I had no issues other than my server being a bit flaky. I am now using this router, a switch, and regularly have 6+ wireless clients on my home network without any issues. I also noticed a very slight drop with my speedtest results (ping went from 7 to 21 and dl/ul speeds dropped by about .1 Mbps) which may be a result of the local cable traffic but the ping was consistently higher no matter what time I did the test. I saw some complaints about not being able to the stand the router up which is true but I would much rather not be able to stand it up and be able to mount it as opposed to some router which stand up but cannot be mounted anywhere

4 out of 5 eggsSolid Router

This review is from: EnGenius ESR900 Dual Band 2.4/5 GHz Wireless N900 Cloud Gigabit Router with USB Port and EnShare

Pros: Dual radios, one 2.4ghz, one 5ghz, this is really nice for mixing devices and tuning for signal or performance. 5Ghz is faster (My HTC One connects at 150mbps) however range is shorter. This is one of few routers I've had used that actually doesn't seem to lock up consistently while running AES encryption with more than a few wireless clients. At any given time I'm running between 2-6 wireless clients and have a lot of network traffic, hundreds of gigabytes are transferred on my network daily. It was very easy to setup, upon first browser load my home page was re-directed to the routers setup page which will be very helpful to those a little less knowledgeable. Extra features like the share port and supplied DDNS for external access to the storage device was a very nice bonus and works wonderfully. Wired performance is on par with my high end switches.

Cons: Range isn't much better on 2.4ghz than the wireless built into my router. Configuration pages seem a bit clunky, constant wait for refresh (however not reboot in most cases), not a problem causer by all means.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a solid router that is going to be simple to setup, filled with options and not badly priced this is a good option to consider.

I'm using a 40mb download / 20mb upload connection with up to 30 devices connected at any single point, my daily WAN traffic averages about 10GB / day. I am yet to have to reset the power on this router, I can't say how surprised I am.

2 out of 5 eggsEggXpert Review ESR900

This review is from: EnGenius ESR900 Dual Band 2.4/5 GHz Wireless N900 Cloud Gigabit Router with USB Port and EnShare

Pros: 1. Surprisingly strong 5GHz and 2.4GHz radios.
2. Ability to select different regions, thus allowing for a great wireless transmit strength.
3. Exceptionally easy setup, as long as you have Internet access.
4. A wide range of options including, but not limited, to a bandwidth monitor, RIPv2 static routing, DDoS protection, Wake on Lan, Dynamic Wireless Channel Bonding, 8 guest networks and 4 port Gigabit LAN switch just to name a few.
5. Very compact size and mountable
6. Supports both Samba and DLNA so streaming media to your devices is a breeze.
7. The router has a built in IP Camera function but it only supports EnGenuis brand cameras. This does not mean other IP cameras will not work, they will just have to be setup manually.
8. Captcha option when you log into the router. This is a great feature as it helps prevent Brute Force attacks if you enable Remote Management.

Cons: 1. PORT MAPPING/FORWARDING JUST DOESN'T WORK FOR APPLICATIONS. I HAVE A FTP SERVER THAT LISTENS TO A SPECIFIC PORT RANGE. DESPITE MAPPING THAT PORT RANGE, THE ROUTER JUST FLAT OUT WOULD NOT FORWARD THEM PROPERLY. I CAN ALSO VERIFY PORT FORWARDING FOR THE REMOTE DESKTOP PROTOCOL DID NOT FUNCTION AS WELL. THIS WAS VERIFIED ON BOTH MY FTP SERVERS LOG AND WIRESHARK. Please see other thoughts for more info.
2. Internet connection is required in order to complete initial Wizard Setup.
3. USB is only 2.0, not 3.0
4. Does not support Bridging, only Access Point and "WDS".
5. Does not stand vertically, so you must have room to either lie it flat or mount it.
6. FTP Service is enabled by default. The reason this is an issue is because by default it doesn't require a password and allows READ/WRITE access. This means anybody with your public IP address will have full access to any storage media you have plugged directly in the routers USB port.
7. The Wireless Client List shows the connection percentage but not the connection speed

Other Thoughts: I want to give a simple breakdown of my setup and touch on the port mapping/forwarding issues. I also want to mention the port issues did not impact gaming.

I run a FTP server from my home that requires 24 hour access. This FTP server is setup to support passive mode which allows the client to determine the "listening" port of the connection. In order for this to function properly port range forwarding needs to be enabled in your router. This is done on the EnGenius ESR900 with port mapping.

When port mapping/forwarding was enabled, packets that were originating outside of port 80 or 443 were not being forwarded to my server. I was able to consistently recreate this issue both on-net and off-net.

I was also able to confirm that port 3389, the default RDP port, would not forward properly. It didn't matter if it was setup under the Port Forwarding section or under Port Mapping. Again this was confirmed both on-net and off-net.

However, I also run a media server, that is on the same machine as the FTP server. It has HTTP/HTTPS access and port forwarding to it functioned just fine. I had no issues being able to access that server through my web browser. Again this was confirmed both on-net and off-net.

I have no doubt this issue will be addressed in a future firmware release but as it stands right now I consider this router to be "incomplete"

"Other-Other Thoughts"

I currently own a WNDR3700v1, running stock firmware, that I am happy with. I was very surprised to see the ESR900 outperform the wireless capabilities of that router and I was actually looking forward to using the ESR900 as my router.

I was also very pleased with how well it handled multiple simultaneous connections. I never experienced any slow down in speed, wired or wireless, while I was using the router. This includes any issues being able to stream Youtube, Netflix, etc. However I did not use the QoS feature as I deem QoS unnecessary if you are not using a VOIP on your Internet connection. This router has more than enough RAM and CPU speed to get the packets where they need to be.

I also want to reiterate the massive security flaw in the FTP service being enabled by default, supporting anonymous logins, and giving full READ/WRITE access to anything plugged into the USB port. This is a huge security vulnerability for the end user. Can you imagine hooking up your 2TB HDD to the USB port and going back later only to find out everything on the HDD had been deleted?

Last, but not least, I ran the router solid for 4 straight days. At no time did I ever experience any slow down, drop outs, or issues with the router functionality. Part of this may be due to me setting IP Address Reservations for my hardwired PC's and consoles and disabling QoS, which is a CPU cycle/RAM hog. I also disabled the services I was not using, like the built in FTP service.

If the Port Mapping/Forwarding functioned properly I would have given this router 4 Eg

3 out of 5 eggsEngenius odd Mixture #2

This review is from: EnGenius ESR900 Dual Band 2.4/5 GHz Wireless N900 Cloud Gigabit Router with USB Port and EnShare

Pros: This is to add to the previous post about the Routers choppiness with youtube expanded to include extremely slow webpage loads, especially with flash laden webpages!

Cons: The Engenius router ESR900 is now experiencing severe issues with loading flash enabled webpages.

There are pauses of 10-20 seconds on average for anything to load that includes flash. Pages where my browser cache should allow for almost instantaneous page loads averages 10 or more seconds between page loads and sometimes it's 20-30 seconds and as time goes on, it gets longer and longer.

I reconnected my WNDR3700 V1 router and immediately the page load hangs disappeared. This tells me the controller in the ESR 900 is having trouble with the packets coming in and allocating bandwidth to multimedia by priority as in WMM...the slow page loads happen whether I'm connected via direct Ethernet cable or the wireless...both bands G&N (2.4 & 5 GHz) are involved and both exhibit the page load issue exactly the same...it's the routers decision making algorithms for multimedia based packets and how to route them to your ip address...but it does it on chrome, firefox, and IE11 with the same slow loads for all browsers.

Since the router swap back to my WNDR3700 V1 eliminated the problem immediately, it indicates that the issue lies with the router itself and not my cables, my wireless chips, or my home lan.

The gui page located at 192.168.0.1 gets you to the menu page but once login to router is chosen, it hangs for 30 or more seconds sometimes 60 seconds isn't unusual in ALL browsers, which isn't how it did on initial set up and the first 2 days...everything slowed down immediately after the 3rd day, first review.
I powered cycled the router several times each couple of hours for another 2 days and no success, the slow login, slow page loads, all remained as bad or worse as when I finally disconnected it at day 5 of ownership.

I checked my power outlet with a digital Multimeter for power fluctuations, and no problems found, I checked the power strip for the same voltage issues and it's rock solid as well. I checked to make sure the power block wasn't overheating at the power strip and it was normal to feel with my hand and was warm but not hot. I checked the router itself for cable connection issues I checked for heat issues and all was cold to touch and Ethernet connections were solid.
All this leaves ONLY the router itself as the final culprit, I once again checked power at the wall, the power strip, and even the power coming in to the router itself from the power brick...all were fine and stable, no fluctuations anywhere.
Other than the extremely slow login issue and the slow page loads...the router exhibited no other issues, connections were completely stable, distance for useable connections remained the same and all indicator lights were normal indicating stable firmware...just inefficient.

Look at other thoughts for the chips that are in the router.

url of info: http://wikidevi.com/wiki/EnGenius_ESR900

Other Thoughts: Chips that are in the router

Type: wireless router
FCC ID: A8JESR900
Industry Canada ID: 10103A-ESR900

Power: 12 VDC, 1.5 A
Connector type: barrel

CPU1: Qualcomm Atheros QCA9558
FLA1: 16 MB (Macronix MX25L12845EMI-10G)

RAM1: 128 MB (Nanya NT5TU32M16DG-AC x 2)
Expansion IF types: USB 2.0

USB ports: 1
WI1 ch

Usually Atheros is an outstanding chipset that works extremely well so all I can surmise from my issues is that the firmware written is having issues and some of the algorithms used for Qos aren't holding up or the cached data for dns or routing tables aren't flushing properly but I lean towards the algorithms AND control scripts aren't remaining efficient and are failing to perform data cache flush routines.
I have reset the router numerous times, power cycled the router over and over, power cycled my cable modem which is a Cisco DPC 3208 and nothing changed the extremely slow login page nor the webpage slow loading.even though I am connected directly via Ethernet cable.

Since changing back to the WNDR3700 V1 router...all problems disappeared upon connecting and displaying a website...all pages are snappy and load as soon as I click the url...all flash pops right in and the router remains up for months and months without a single power cycle.

All this tells me it's the hardware code that isn't remaining efficient so call if Firmware related and that's an engineering or coders issue to provide a patch or new firmware update to solve the problem.

All I can say is the router works extremely well and range is as good as anything I've seen for a home router, but I can't recommend this to home owners until these problems are addressed because of the frustration generated when I'm used to my broadband 30meg connection with Mediacom being full throttle with instantaneous webpage loads and feeling like I moved back to "dial-up" which is to say the least "horrible."

So back to the drawing you engineers and coders...this one needs some tweaking to improve the QOS and algorithms so that the router responds correctly
