5 out of 5 eggsVery solid router

This review is from: ZyXEL X650 Dual-Band Wireless AC1200 Gigabit Router

Pros: 1. Very stable - didn't have to reboot for months... that is a huge issue with other "premium" and way more expansive routers I had in the last half year (ASUS, TP-Link, etc).
2. Was on big sale, so less than $40!!
3. Very stable wireless connection and no problems with different devices (had almost 20 at home).
4. Range is better than peers - good speed for 1080p via - 3 walls and about 10m range for 'N' and have media center connected from about 5m and 1 wall on speed about 600Mbps in 'AC'. Although not a match for "premium" models.
5. Can work as a different types of bridge/repeater (and it's for a cheap and basic model!!!!)

Cons: 1. No beam forming for wireless, that limits the range, but for a price not a problem - as above
2. Design is very simplistic for both software and hardware (would be great to have some extra control features)
3. No automated updates of the firmware, need to download separately, if you want to update.
4. DHCP is very simple, also gives only MAC of the devices, that makes it harder to troubleshoot the network.
5. No USB - but not a problem for me as I have a 24/7 server.

Other Thoughts: 1.Very solid build, although design is basic.
2.Strong WiFi signal with good coverage for an average house, although not a match for way more expansive models, like R7500 or RT-AC87
3. Overall great router, one of the best I've had so far. Over-perform more expansive models by many criteria.
4. Once again hard rock stable, with almost 20 internet connected devices at home

3 out of 5 eggsNot great, poor signal

This review is from: ZyXEL X650 Dual-Band Wireless AC1200 Gigabit Router

Pros: Average router with commonly used features.

Cons: signal is not great, the range is disappointing. does not support ddwrt, and manufacturer doesn't update firmware often enough. connection is stable, speeds are what you expect, but not great for multi floor home. ❎ range is fine.

4 out of 5 eggsWorked Great

This review is from: ZyXEL X650 Dual-Band Wireless AC1200 Gigabit Router

Pros: I had problems with two other routers. Installed this and all is good. Still needed a range extender to get to my son's room though and that's why I gave it 4 stars.

Cons: Range seemed limited.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid stability

This review is from: ZyXEL X650 Dual-Band Wireless AC1200 Gigabit Router

Pros: This router is solid performer. It has been running stable for last three months since day one. Menu screen is outdated compared to major brands, but if you have basic networking kowledge, you should no problem. I bought two. 2nd router is bridged to the main router through 5ghz. 2.4ghz is simultaneously used as AP using different SID. Wireless bridge has been very stable as well.

Cons: The only problem with this router is the range. My router is setup on the 2nd floor. Connection drops in the first floor garage.

3 out of 5 eggsNice Entry level AC router

This review is from: ZyXEL X650 Dual-Band Wireless AC1200 Gigabit Router

Pros: Cost. Dual Band. AC capable. Nice having 2.4 and 5Ghz w A/B/N/AC options.

Cons: Web Interface leave much to be desired. Hard to find firmware updates on the company's support page. If using in Access Point mode, there is no option tp put your gateway in (so you can never update time of the device). Kinda of annoying.

In Access Point mode (After about 2 months) - this router would no loner accept 5gHz connections. Had to reset to factory default and reconfigure the router. Been working fine since then (about 1 week)

Other Thoughts: If you need a cheap 5Ghz or AC solution, this is nice. If you need something more reliable, go for something better.

1 out of 5 eggsStay Away

This review is from: ZyXEL X650 Dual-Band Wireless AC1200 Gigabit Router

Pros: Cheap, Fast when it works.

Cons: Unstable. Range unreliable. Crashes often. Ports incompatible with certain devices (like my LG TV).

Other Thoughts: It's not worth the frustration, even at the bargain price I got it at. Bad firmware problems.

1 out of 5 eggsPoor signal, constant crashes

This review is from: ZyXEL X650 Dual-Band Wireless AC1200 Gigabit Router

Pros: Looked cool. Works well if your devices are in the same room... External antenna was easy to position.

Gigabit ports? I'm really trying...

Cons: Constantly crashed- most likely due to subpar firmware. Very limted features.

Signal strength on both bands 2.5 and 5Ghz were disappointing.

3 out of 5 eggsYou get what you pay for

This review is from: ZyXEL X650 Dual-Band Wireless AC1200 Gigabit Router

Pros: Cheap and relatively easy to set up.

Cons: Weak signal strength. Even when I'm sitting in the same room, my phone says the signal is only fair. Devices in other rooms suffer from poor bandwidth or continually drop the connection. I could also never get WPS to work.

Other Thoughts: The UI is a little clunky and hard to understand, but it's not terrible.

3 out of 5 eggsThere's better options, but in a pinch....

This review is from: ZyXEL X650 Dual-Band Wireless AC1200 Gigabit Router

Pros: dual band AC router
Decent throughput when in close proximity.
Essentially got this item free in a bundle.

Cons: Range is much worse than my el-cheapo TP LINK Wireless N router

Other Thoughts: I'm not going to go on about all the features this model has, merely give you my impressions.

It's good enough for my main floor on a 1300 Sft home, but won't really reach into the garage which is <40 feet from the router.

No real bones to pick with this thing. It does have some nice options on it, but if you're in a big house, you might want to look elsewhere.
