This review is from: ZyXEL Wireless AC HD Media/ Gaming Router-1750Mbps, Gigabit, Dual-Band, StreamBoost traffic shaping (NBG6716)

Pros: multiple wi-fi in each band - 4 in each band - for a total of 8...
each with own name, security & password...
button to hide broadcasting SSID

Cons: usb 2.0 support for drives is very poor.
was able to access the usb drives only the first time they were set up. tried resetting and reconfiguring the router 3 times but was unsuccessful in accessing the drives. Also, the DHCP server seems to have its own mind. Assigns IP addresses to devices I do not know and does not give out any details of the device except the MAC address. BTW, the router does not have a MAC address printed on it, which is usually the case. The DHCP client list gets updated only after a couple of reboots of the router and the computer connected to it. Help is non existent. The list of cities it has for configuration the opening page is extremely limited. Wish it had San Francisco - at the least :-(

1 out of 5 eggsWill not buy another ZyXEL product

This review is from: ZyXEL Wireless AC HD Media/ Gaming Router-1750Mbps, Gigabit, Dual-Band, StreamBoost traffic shaping (NBG6716)

Pros: Set up was easy

Cons: Limits my connection from 50MB to 2MB down but up I can get 5MB. Called tech support and they said bad router and we replaced it, next unit did same thing so, they tell me it's a compatibility issue with my modem. I replaced my modem with a recommended modem from their support. Same issue. then they had me put a switch between modem and router, same issue. Replaced with ASUS AC1900 and all works fine.

Other Thoughts: Support was very lacking in technical knowledge and seemed bothered by my calling in. How rude of me to ask them to make their product work.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat Wireless router

This review is from: ZyXEL Wireless AC HD Media/ Gaming Router-1750Mbps, Gigabit, Dual-Band, StreamBoost traffic shaping (NBG6716)

Pros: Excellent Tech Support by Zyxel you talk to somebody in America not India or else. They actually help you thru the process.
Excellent interface and abilities to adjust settings. intuitive as well.
good quality and reliability having used Zyxel for 20 years no issues.

Cons: Unfortunately disappointed with the wireless range. Signal strength degrade rapidly as you move away from router. Having 1 floor level in-between cuts the transfer speed down to 9MB/s. Signal is too low to be usable. Had to return it. Even with a W300N wireless extender speed was still only 25Mbs.

Other Thoughts: Tried the new Asus AC1900 and this thing has 120MBs at the same location. I hope ZyXEL adds some power behind the antennas to make future products better. Love ZyXEL products.

4 out of 5 eggsHome Networking Addendum

This review is from: ZyXEL Wireless AC HD Media/ Gaming Router-1750Mbps, Gigabit, Dual-Band, StreamBoost traffic shaping (NBG6716)

Pros: Called ZyXel support and they helped me get my router back up and firmware updated. As of now all my devices are connected and working properly. Support had me unplug the router and I did not lose my configuration. My child is gaming (Black Ops II) wirelessly on-line with a PS3 and Bluetooth device.

Cons: Some how I over loaded the memory in the router trying to download the firmware.

Other Thoughts: Does not give instructions on how to rename your connected devices or change the icon device pictures.

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: ZyXEL Wireless AC HD Media/ Gaming Router-1750Mbps, Gigabit, Dual-Band, StreamBoost traffic shaping (NBG6716)

Pros: Streamboost, reliability, stable connection, fast, easy to understand interface.

Cons: I have nothing negative to say about this router.

Other Thoughts: I'm the first one to rate this router and now I'm back for an update.
Everything has been running smoothly and flawlessly. I've enjoyed this so much that my family got one as well and have been loving it. They have around 15 devices that connect to it and works great!

I have around 9 devices that connect to it and have been working flawlessly. And 2 of those devices are VoIP and 1 Netflix.

My family's house is around 2200sq and have a garage out back which is about 200ft from the house and it gets 2-3 bars and less than 30 ping and is able to watch Netflix out there, not forgetting it has to go through 4 walls.

Those of you that are having issues, check your channel width and lower it to 20mhz, which will travel the furthest and the most compatible with older hardware.

Also, after firmware update, make sure to do a reset on the router back to default settings. After that, don't forget to lower MHz to 20 and not auto.

One last thing, this router automatically regulates your bandwidth of your internet connect, and will give computers and phones lower priority which means an artificial low speed. What it is doing is reserving the bandwidth for VoIP and Netflix and online games. So when you run a speed test and the number is lower, that's how its supposed to be.

If anyone is having a problem, ask the new egg question and I will respond.

1 out of 5 eggsToo Many Problems

This review is from: ZyXEL Wireless AC HD Media/ Gaming Router-1750Mbps, Gigabit, Dual-Band, StreamBoost traffic shaping (NBG6716)

Pros: Looks nice and fits on my shelf. A switch to turn the lights off. Initial setup was easy.

Cons: Failing one piece at a time.

Other Thoughts: I received this as a gift because I wanted to plug in hard drives and have my TV play the movies on them. First I setup the security and had no problems getting 2 wired, 4 WiFi computers, 3 smart phones and a TV connected. I have a Belkin Network/USB hub that I did not get to work. I plugged in a pocket HD went to the TV to watch a movie. It kinda worked once then nothing. I plugged the drive into the computer and found all 800GB of files were gone. Videos, pictures and executables were just gone. As you might imagine I was a bit surprised. I put a few MP4s back on it and again they disappeared. Then I tried to get the Epson WF60 on the WiFi net. I could get the wired computers to see it but not the wireless ones. A few days later only one computer could connect. And then the smart phone started to have problems. At this point I decided to send it back to Newwegg.
I was working with a tech and would have been willing to deal with the problems. But my files getting deleted left me with really bad feeling. Even a bad unit should not have deleted my files.

This review is from: ZyXEL Wireless AC HD Media/ Gaming Router-1750Mbps, Gigabit, Dual-Band, StreamBoost traffic shaping (NBG6716)

Pros: none at this time

Cons: It now does not support all my devices at one time. ever since I tried to update the firmware two weeks ago. only one device on-line at a time. Probably need to go back to default settings.

2 out of 5 eggsBuggy, minimal support.

This review is from: ZyXEL Wireless AC HD Media/ Gaming Router-1750Mbps, Gigabit, Dual-Band, StreamBoost traffic shaping (NBG6716)

Pros: Dual channel, settings galore, low-wait US tech support, graphs and other interesting statistics, pretty admin UI

Cons: Weak signal, stalled-out or flaky connections, dismissive non-thourough tech support. Extremely frustrating.

Other Thoughts: My devices, about 6-9 including Android, an LG TV, Onkyo receiver, XBox 360, and Windows PCs.
Every device connects for a while, and while connected, gets no data transfer. However, there is still a strong connection to the admin console webpage.
Called tech support and barely described my issues before i was told that i should "upgrade" and that was probably too many devices. I was given a couple ideas on configuration and shown the latest firmware on their public ftp site.

Needless to say,these things didn't help.

One floor below, the Xbox gets barely any signal.
