2 out of 5 eggsESR1750

This review is from: EnGenius ESR1750 Dual Band Wireless AC1750 Cloud Gigabit Router with USB Port and EnShare

Pros: * Easy to set up for Media sharing.

Cons: Can't forward port 80 (huge disappointment)
Can't set Static DNS

Other Thoughts: Both the cons are basic functions of alot cheaper routers.
I upgraded from a Linksys E1200 but will probably return this EnGenius router because it's missing those 2 basic functions. That's why I can only give it 2 eggs.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Alber t.,


We appreciate your time in posting your comments and feedback.

Good news, we do have firmware for the ESR1750 that can allow you to forward port 80. Please contact our customer support team to guide you on where to download that firmware.

Please allow us to do some troubleshooting with you. You may reach us through our number at 1-888-735-7888 or e-mail us at support@engeniustech.com. Our support team would be glad to be of service to you.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for wireless N the AC not so much...

This review is from: EnGenius ESR1750 Dual Band Wireless AC1750 Cloud Gigabit Router with USB Port and EnShare

Pros: I purchased just about every brand of wireless routers and so far Engenius has been as rock solid as they come. This unit has been up for a week and I have had no issues what so ever out of it. The wireless N works great and I am getting full bars both upstairs and downstairs for a 3500 sq ft home.

Cons: The wireless AC on this is unusable. If you are setting right in front of it then you can get a signal. If you are more than 15-20 feet away nothing. Luckily I didn't buy it for the wireless AC I wanted to replace my old Engenius wireless N router with one that had gigabit ports. I tested the wireless AC with my Samsung Galaxy S4 it was fast when it worked. I have the newest firmware installed at the time of this review.

Other Thoughts: Overall if you are looking for a great wireless N router with gigabit ports then this will work great. If you are looking for wireless AC I would stay clear of this one.

1 out of 5 eggsGarbage

This review is from: EnGenius ESR1750 Dual Band Wireless AC1750 Cloud Gigabit Router with USB Port and EnShare

Pros: Interface is simple and to the point. Wireless Signal is strong.

Cons: 1. Wired devices continually drop there connection.
2. Wireless devices get good signal, but internet speeds are anemic, getting 40+MB on wired and .14- 1.75 MB on wireless. My apple TV is literally 5 feet from the router using 5ghz and it is absolutely painful to watch.
3. Engenius support is garbage.

Other Thoughts: Contact Support to resolve issues, and they stated that i probably had interference and suggested that I switch channels on wireless, even though it was set on auto channel and had the same issue on 2.4 Ghz and 5 Ghz. Was told that I should not be using auto channel. I implemented the suggested fixes(changing channels on the wireless) and it did nothing to fix my issue. I live in a residential neighborhood with very limited wireless interference, pretty sure that interference is not the issue. Plugged my old Dlink wireless N back in and everything is working perfect now.

Support closed my support ticket out because I went out of town and did not respond in over a day. Now I am getting no response. In my opinion this seems to be just an firmware issue.

I have 5 ENH 500 running wireless bridges for my business, and have use some of there access points. Have had limited issues with these devices, but since support has been subpar at best I will not be purchasing any Engenius products in the future.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic

This review is from: EnGenius ESR1750 Dual Band Wireless AC1750 Cloud Gigabit Router with USB Port and EnShare

Pros: Rock steady performance, no resets since I set it up. Strong wireless signal through the entire house. I connect while sitting in the driveway. Easy setup, nice interface.

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: I replaced an aging big brand N router that was dropping twice a day with this EnGenius. Solid choice. Since I plugged in the new router it has been running solid from day one without a single reset. The signal strength is outstanding. The router is stationed at the mid level and I get full internet bandwidth (55mb down, 12mb up) on the 2nd level and basement using the 5ghz wireless N band. The interface is very easy to understand. For the price, I couldn't be happier. Great product.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible Limitations

This review is from: EnGenius ESR1750 Dual Band Wireless AC1750 Cloud Gigabit Router with USB Port and EnShare

Pros: 4 Gigabit LAN Ports

Cons: Start at it comes pre-IP'd at 192.168.0.1 - which instantly causes IP conflict. Cannot function as just an access point apparently. Cannot input DHCP relay IP. Doesn't include full manual in the box. Laggy WebUI.

Other Thoughts: I got this to replace / upgrade my D-Link DAP-2553 which was a terrible mistake.
Maybe a good option if you aren't experienced with networking or if you don't have an existing network. If you're particular about your network architecture, avoid this.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Zehnmonkey,


We can assure you that this router can be used as an access point and is just as well suited for novice and experienced users. To use the device as an access point, simply connect an ethernet cable from a LAN port on your main router, to a LAN port (not WAN) port on the ESR1750, and disable the DHCP server function.

Please allow us to do some troubleshooting with you. You may reach us through our number at 1-888-735-7888 (Monday – Friday, 9:00am – 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 and we look forward to hearing from you.


Sincerely,

5 out of 5 eggsFollow-up Review

This review is from: EnGenius ESR1750 Dual Band Wireless AC1750 Cloud Gigabit Router with USB Port and EnShare

Pros: So far, 100% up-time*
Pretty useful bandwidth monitoring utility, integrated in the web interface (I wanted to narrow down which infected devices were producing rogue traffic on our network).

I keep discovering new, pleasantly surprising features in the interface, almost every time I log in the management interface. Still in the process of setting up my NAS, will write another review after I test high-bandwidth LAN scenarios.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: *Had this router running for about 2 months now, and I haven't had any down time, other than manually rebooting it after firmware flash.

From my experience, most routers and switches typically begin to fail after about 3 - 5 years. The way this thing has been running, I would guess that it will last another 10 or more.

3 out of 5 eggsWeak Signal

This review is from: EnGenius ESR1750 Dual Band Wireless AC1750 Cloud Gigabit Router with USB Port and EnShare

Pros: I replaced a 5 year old Linksys WRT610N with this more attractive, modern and functional wireless router to better match white furniture and a white Motorola SB6141.

It was a vanity, sure, but I knew I'd be all right because the reviews I'd been reading were really (5-egg) positive on the serviceability of the dual radios and the unit's throughput. (The WRT610N's 5gHz radio hasn't worked since 09).

The admin UI is clean, simple and packed with features.

Cons: Signal strength is quite weak in my experience. The WRT610N's 2.5gHz radio provides unwavering 5 bar coverage to the entire house, garage and all closets up and down included.

This unit's signal strength, on the other hand, vacillates between 3 and 4 bars.

My living room is at the base of the stairs and is 2 storeys tall. I can stand upstairs and look down on the sofa and the stand on which the router sits so propagation should not be a problem. And just a moment ago I stood on the 5th stair, 14' away from the router and still enjoyed 4 bars.

In my experience that's crazy. Bear in mind, I'm still only using the 2.5gHz radio on channels 1, 6 or 11. I don't have any devices on the AC standard yet so it may come into its own there but on the 802.11 N front its performance is underwhelming.

I updated the firmware this morning to the latest version available at the time of this submission.

Other Thoughts: Engenius tech support were really trying hard to resolve the issue for me and turned me on to a setting under the applicable radio's "basic" tab that allows you to adjust the radio's power level. It was already at 100% but should you have a problem it would be a good idea to check that out.

1 out of 5 eggsPathetic

This review is from: EnGenius ESR1750 Dual Band Wireless AC1750 Cloud Gigabit Router with USB Port and EnShare

Pros: VPN (works only sometimes)

Cons: Unreliable, needs rebooting 3 times a week, I opened a case with the manufacturer over a month ago and no response to my issue

Other Thoughts: http://www.engeniusforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=1035

Engenius has been unresponsive on fixing my issue. I'm tried of rebooting the unit for VPN to work. Pathetic.

4 out of 5 eggsCloud Sharing Not There Yet

This review is from: EnGenius ESR1750 Dual Band Wireless AC1750 Cloud Gigabit Router with USB Port and EnShare

Pros: Dual-Band 2.4GHz & 5GHz
Range equivalent to DD-WRT at max-stable power
Able to hide SSID
Remote Administration app available
Stylish
Can be set up without software (other than your preferred browser)
Guest networks can be configured
Multiple networks per band (8 total) can be set up

Cons: USB Port VERY unstable
WPS does not work
Unable to change default 'admin' username (see other thoughts)
Remote Administration app doesn't really work (see other thoughts)
UDP/FTP port stays at 9000 no matter how often it's changed elsewhere

Other Thoughts: I have been focusing on getting the USB media share to work, and I haven't been able to. It will stay for a few hours then disconnect as far as the interface is concerned (local and remote). Physically removing the volume and reinserting works, but for local video, it's jumpy and won't buffer.

The default username is a sticking point for me, but with the ability to hide the SSIDs (and since I use COMPLEX passwords), I can overlook this.

Since I have never used WPS before, not having it available wasn't in issue. It was just a little bit of a pain for my printer as I have to use its console to connect.

I deactivated the 5GHz band from the remote app, but when I logged into the router from the PC, it was still on. I'm not concerned as the range within my unit is only about 5 meters in open air.

This unit is stable (excluding the USB port/sharing), has similar range, and if using the included mounting screws, will only look like a wired smoke or carbon monoxide detector. Don't let the size (or price) fool you: for a dual band router, you're getting your monies worth!

I did not test the guest network features as I don't entertain guests at my home, so there was no need to do so (and I was busy finding a way to change the 'admin' username and get EnShare to work).

4 out of 5 eggsGood Router

This review is from: EnGenius ESR1750 Dual Band Wireless AC1750 Cloud Gigabit Router with USB Port and EnShare

Pros: +Easy setup w multi-SSID support, default passwords printed on device
+Design blends with environment, appears as white 'smoke detector'
+Easily wall mountable, any orientation. Has screws & 1.5ft ethernet cable
+Software upgradeable, 802.11ac (firmware 1.1.0 tested)
+High end feature rich (see product description for in-depth description)
+DDNS on by default, with EnGenius managed DDNS server preconfigured (SUPER EASY SETUP-Great for VPN features, & access to home network when on the road)
+Supports IPv6 natively, all standard capabilities of 802.11b to n, plus 802.11AC of course!
+Multiple simultaneous wireless networks, with independent security settings (great for micro-managing security and access to sites, bandwith, port filters, and encryption for access) Parental filters, guest mode, and managed bandwidth useage on each of the networks!
+Advanced firewall capabilities, access control restrictions, yet also easy uPNP support
+Extra media serving capabilities in the form of a single USB port accessible simultaneously as a (media share, Samba share, a DLNA server, and a FTP server) All enabled via LAN access by default
+'proprietary' EnShare remote access media share for WAN (www) media access
+USB port supports NTFS USB hard discs. (worked with USB 3.0 seagate 2.5 inch hard drive (320GB), a USB SDHC adapter USB 2.0 (32GB), however NOT with a USB SDXC 128GB card via the same USB adapter (tried 4 other cards and card readers. success was less than 50 percent)
+WPS push button connection worked well and fast for easy access via cell, laptop, etc (some experts consider this a vulnerability, however average users enjoy its easy access. You decide to keep it enabled or not)
+Media stream server from usb interface worked smoothly and fast streaming HD movies to android phone via 'ES File Explorer' v3.0.5.1
+Awesome wired and wireless bandwidth, 1000Mbps copper (1000Mbps in both send and receive), potentially over 1000Mbps wireless (aggregate bandwidth in one direction send or receive), typical lowest transfer rate at 30+ feet was 700Mbps (see 'other thoughts' for how testing was conducted)
+802.11ac is all about bonding multiple wireless n channels into an extremely fast super-wireless-n pipe for massive media streaming. Tests showed it works GREAT even in oversaturated wireless N (2.4GHz) environments! ABSOLUTELY WORTH THE INVESTMENT!!!
+Testing from even medium to high end desktops without special registry tweaks and high end hardware are NOT enough to stress this router! Only a lot of devices or a massively powerful server could stress this router (I used one server that hits 7.9 of 7.9 max rating on Windows index experience, and several laptops, plus cell phones for testing)
+Worked well with Netgear A6200 USB 802.11AC adapter, Linksys WEC600N express card, Samsung Galaxy S3, and Note 2

Cons: -No outputs for high-gain external antenna connections (!!!) Don't mount this near ANY metal, including I-beams in buildings, or large unshielded power lines, or windows (5GHz channels HATE glass, as it reflects almost all the energy, so you WILL NOT get much if any signal on the other side of the window. You can mount this high up in an attic to avoid window issues and increase its range). Large cinder blocks wall also dramatically lower signal received. This router is best for open environments, minimal obstructions, and near line of sight mounting.
-Supports IP camera's, but only EnGenius brand IP-cameras (untested statement) I couldn't get mine to work with it yet
-USB port did not work with all SD USB adapters or cards (see Pros section) Seems to only like SDHC SD cards
-Using EnShare to download a movie to play, media content takes a while to update or refresh, which may scare less patient users (it just stopped reporting a files presence for 20 minutes)
-Built in FTP client has major limitations (anonymous, or single user with password acces only. Passwords passed in the clear, slow data transfer rates from USB server, no SFTP ie no encryption) of course it is an EXTRA feature, you can always setup a full FTP server from your PC.
-Pulling from built in FTP server, bandwidth limited to 3.7 MBps (ie. 29.6 Mbps) (total from all clients pulling at once, 2 clients appeared to be the max at once. Further connections were rejected until the first 2 finished downloading.
-Uploads to Enshare (usb device via web page interface) are limited to 500MB by default (Not truly a negative, just something you have to change up front if you need to upload to the drive).
-Needs more granular user, password, access restrictions for advanced users that want to enable sharing media to WAN. The WWW is a dangerous place, always someone testing your routers security; And never let WAN interface users configure your router!
-Wizard for VPN setup is generally well thought out, however it is missing some critical explanation of settings for amateurs (such as server IP and remote IP range fields) Not a huge issue, people should be able to look up these things if they don't get it.

Other Thoughts: I am a computer speed freak. That said, I am impressed with this unit, I give it a high value to cost ratio rating. Overall very fast and easy to setup and use, It's not the single fastest router, and to get the most from it you will need a few N450+ capable cards (or 802.11AC for N900+ speeds), and a very fast PC to stream from it. This is a solid upgrade for ANY user.

I was forced to setup a super fast windows server to provide enough bandwidth draw to begin to stress this router. Mark me impressed. I did not have enough average laptop and desktop PC's available to properly see how many average users would be required to stress this router.

Tests- (real world use, high interference from neighbor networks on 2.4GHz channels, nearly all bandwidth was bonded 5GHz channels.) Router 30+ft from clients. Multiple tests for obstacles- 1 turn from visibility, 1 wall completely blocking, 1 brick wall blocking, 1 glass window blocking, 1 I-beam blocking. I had to use multiple adapters to stress this unit. All done while neighbor wireless routers were using all channels 1, 6, and 11 on 2.4GHz. There were no routers on 5 GHz channels. A seagate 2.5 inch USB hard drive (avg of 48MBps write, 55 MBps read was filled with 30Gigs of data. 40% mp3's, 50% multi-gigabyte video files, and 10% jpgs. I stream downloaded the entirety of the content from all devices at once, recording total bandwidth consumed. Average rates are reported here.

Results-
in 802.11ac mode(5GHz only) as 2.4GHz unuseable
->28.6MBps aka 228.8Mbps(From single client. Note, server pulled from was software capped at 100Mbps. Router peaked this out perfectly without a stutter; 99.5% bandwidth use for entire 30GB transfer. Client PCs are much more limitated than this router!)
->29.6Mbps aka 236.8Mbps(From 3 devices at once, dedicated server on giga copper, another dedicated server on wireless ac (at steady 866Mbps link) pulling ftp stream, laptop on wireless N450+ (at steady 270Mbps link) pulling ftp stream, and cell phone streaming DivX DVD movie via wireless) (variations in sustained bandwidth over wireless floated from 26MBps to 33.5MBps)
->clients maintained approx 22 ms pings during tests
Also-
My area of testing had EXTREMELY high interference on all channels. This router will be able to handle several average client PCs at once even in mild interference environments.

Autoconfig selected ch 3. This is bad due to freq conflicts. Channel spacing requires ch 1, 6, 11 be used on 2.4GHz preventing interference. Instead of a logical choice of ch1, it chose ch 3, tearing down all 6 networks near me. Designers need to set default selections to only 1, 6, 11. Issue affects nearly all manufacturers. Manually setting the frequency to ch 1 solved the problem for me.

FTP server doesn't support SFTP (secure shell ftp), and if you wish to control access to it your choices are either anonymous or single user with password.
