1 out of 5 eggsI do not recommend that you purchase this router or AmpedWireless products

Pros: None

Cons: Router locks up/freezes multiple times a week - requires reboot before it will work again
Over 18 months since released and still not even ONE firmware update!
AmpedWireless Tech Support can do nothing for you -- the customer

Other Thoughts: While this router from AmpedWireless had all the promise of fast performance, it lacks the reliability needed for ANY home router.
After purchasing the RTA15 wireless AC router last year, I started having problem with the router locking up and all network traffic would stop -- wired, wireless... DEAD.
The first time or two I chalked it up to maybe changing settings on the router and went through what would soon become a nearly daily ritual of unplugging the router from the electrical outlet and plugging it back in again -- just to get it working again.
After the first week, I began calling AmpedWireless' Technical Support personal and talked them through the problems. They stated how the router was still new and no firmware updates had been released yet, but "were not hearing of this complaint from other early adopters."
I then continued calling, begging for beta firmware updates, resetting the firmware to factory defaults, re-flashing the same firmware back onto the router over and over again.
None of these things worked. I sent the router back to be repaired/replaced -- surely this would resolve the problem of the router locking up! -- It did not.
And then, since I purchased this router directly from AmpedWireless I asked for a refund and they told me that I was out of the 30 day return period and there was nothing they could do for me any longer. I pointed out to them that I had at this point 20 or more calls into support, email correspondence too -- nope, can't help you.
Well, it's a year later and because the RTA15 or its replacement RTA15 router would never work for more than 3 days in a row before locking up I had to replace the nearly $200 router with another one -- one from a reliable and responsible company.
I purchased a "cheap" non-AC 1GB router from Netgear -- it was the best I could afford at the time, and never looked back. I have since saved up enough money to again purchase a new AC Router and upgraded to the Netgear R7000 and it rocks!
A year later and countless others have reported the same locking up/freezing issues and, like myself, have not been given a solution or fix.
In fact, AmpedWireless to this day 11-10-14 - 18 months since the RTA15 was released has not posted one updated firmware, no fixes, no updated feature list, no security updates --- NOTHING.
Before writing this negative review I contacted AmpedWireless again and they still have no updates, know of no upcoming updates, have no list for beta testers and still won't give me a refund.
At this point, nothing would give me more satisfaction than to steer potential customers away from a company with not only bad business practices and poor customer service.
but a company that doesn't take ownership for designing a flawed product.
There are alternatives, MANY ALTERNATIVES for 1GB wireless AC routers -- do yourself a favor and look elsewhere before you too get the short end of the stick from AmpedWireless.

1 out of 5 eggsUnable to work with Mac

Pros: Sounded good with lots of poweer

Cons: I worked with several technicians tying to resolve the problem of not being able to see the device on the network. Sometimes it would show up and other times not. As we worked, reset, configured it got worse and worse. Finally they said it was defective. I then replaced it with a Amped SR 10000 and had similar problems. The technician finally admitted that their software didn't work well with the Mac and had similar problems before. The technician also said that their devices also have problems with Vista and XP.

Manufacturer Response:

Rick,
We apologize for the trouble and inconvenience you have experienced as well as the wrong information. Our routers and extenders, like all WIFI devices, work under the global IEEE 802.11 WIFI standard. The operating system of your devices is and should not be an issue of incompatibility as long as your device is WIFI capable. At this point we are not clear on what issue you are having with our units so please call our tech support line at 888-573-8820 so that we can resolve the problems you are having. If you feel you need higher level assistance please ask to speak to a level 2 technician when you call.

1 out of 5 eggsMeh

Pros: It has somewhat better range than my last router that had internal antennas, but not by much.

Cons: I bought this expecting much better range. from my basement, i can't even make it to my garage. Granted it's detached, but its only 35 ft from this router. The firmware is nice but is lacking some control features as in a scheduled restart option. It also seems to drop WiFi signal frequently.

Other Thoughts: Bottom line: Don't bother spending money on this thing, for the price they're much better options out there. Newegg will be seeing a return on this one.

Manufacturer Response:

Anonymous,
We apologize about the issues you are experiencing. The range
claims on the box/website are based on our performance test results and are
used more as a reference and not a guarantee. There are many factors that
negatively affect wireless performance, such as your environment,
interference, network conditions and wireless obstructions. If you feel the unit is not working to specifications please call our tech support line at 888-573-8820 so that we can assist you.

3 out of 5 eggsNetwork Fail

Pros: Easy setup, decent customer support, decent features and worked for a while.

Cons: I purchased this router and the matching AP model: APA20. They constantly drop WIFI, need reseting at least 4 times a week. The AP stopped outputting the 5GHz band totally, ended up RMA'ing the device through AmpedWireless. Received my replacement, and now have the same issue. Now only my 2.5GHz band works and not from the AP only from the router. My house is fairly large and the AP worked out well when it worked. I would no longer recommend the AC router or AP from Ampedwireless, I would still stand by the Wireless N models

Other Thoughts: Overal the router and AP are great products. AC is not a solid standard and I understand problems occur. I am a Network admin and I understand the routing settings as well as network design. I plan to purchase a different brand AC router and AP to attempt a better quality network for myself and family.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Router!!!

Pros: Great Wi-Fi speeds and signal strength throughout the whole house. Connected all my Wi-Fi devices without any problems (some ac, n, b). Simple user interface.

Cons: Price is a bit high and router doesn't have all the ac band features. No USB 3.0 port for NAS, but not a deal killer and ok with ac Wi-Fi speeds and transfer rates.

Other Thoughts: Overall a great router with plenty of features and its simple to setup and secure! Was able to get rid of my repeater as my previous router just didn't cut it, so this definitely has a better signal range. Amped Wireless makes good network gear...never had problems with any of their products.

2 out of 5 eggsSub-Par Router

Pros: AC Wireless support

Cons: Very poor range and performance, port forwarding does not allow port mapping (NAT) very basic networking functionality.

Manufacturer Response:

Jese,
We apologize if the unit is not working correctly. The RTA15 comes equipped with 700mW amplifiers that should provide you with a coverage area of at least 56 feet through the B,G and N standards and much more through the AC standard. If your unit is not performing correctly please call our tech support center at 888-573-8820 so that a technician can assist you in getting your unit working properly.

1 out of 5 eggsRTA_15 not up to par

Pros: Very fast with a 2.4 and a 5.0 channel that i can connect seperatly. but only for a moment.

Cons: works for about 5 minutes then drops signal completley and reboots.

Other Thoughts: probably some kind of internal firmware issue. i only got it to work by turning down the coverage area to 70% then was able to play xbox on the 5.0 ghz signal for a couple hours before it droped out again. For a product in this class i would expect it to work out of the box

Manufacturer Response:

ash,

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Gaming Router!

Pros: It has more than doubled my internet speed for WiFi connected devices downstairs and has more than tripled the range of my last router! This wireless router is worth the extra money if you want reliable, fast, and extra-wide WiFi range. I play a lot of games and connect my phone to my home internet and I have never once been dropped from a game or received poor connections issues. This wireless router is able to broadcast my home network over a block past my house! I would highly recommend hiding your network if you get this router, because all your neighbors within a block of your house my try to jump on the internet if you leave it open.

Cons: Expensive but worth it! You get your money's worth out of this purchase.

2 out of 5 eggsFaulty

Pros: Some really nice option with a nicely layout in thee web interface.

Great response time from their tech support some thing like 6 emails in a single after noon.

Ran pretty cool when underload with good venting if you put the stand on backwards ( as heat raises ) or just left the stand of it.

Cons: Got a faulty one went though a few things with Amped about network speed then they said at a point to flash it so it did then it locked me out of the security settings so i could no longer the the key so it had to go back.

Other Thoughts: Faulty gear happens, it will not stop me from trying another one t some point..

Manufacturer Response:

AsRock,
We apologize for the negative experience you had with the RTA15 unit. Unfortunately there are some instances were new devices do experience some kind of failure. We at Amped Wireless do take the quality of our products very serious and are constantly working to resolve any issue that our units may experience.
