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.

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:

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:

2 out of 5 eggsLarge Range With Low Reliability

Pros: -The router's signal reaches where I want it to.
-It's compatible with (ac).
-Good wireless speeds on both the 5.0 and 2.4 Ghz channels.
-It comes with good instructions on how to set it up and the configuration interface is great.

Cons: -The connection to the internet drops out randomly whenever you go past 1 or 2 MB/s and I've barely seen it go past that as far as top download speeds are concerned.
-Whenever it does what I've mentioned above the connection doesn't come back until you reset it.

Other Thoughts: I did not order this but my mom did and I have had experience using and configuring this router.

I really want to give this more eggs but with the severe reliability issue I can't give it more. Windows 7-8 even says I have 4-5 bars but as soon as I download something it turns the connection to "limited" and I have to reset it, and if I am right next to it it does the same thing. If I use the router this one is replacing I can download anything uninterrupted, I just need to be closer to it. For almost $200 I would of expected at least reliable internet usage.

Manufacturer Response:

Anonymous,

Please contact our support staff to see if we can correct this issue for you. You can try flashing the firmware and check to see if you notice any changes. You may want to consider exchanging the unit with Newegg if you are still within the return period if swapping cables and flashing the firmware does not make any difference. You should not be experiencing drops like you are describing. If you are out of this period we can start the RMA process to get you a working unit. We are sorry for the inconvenience that you may have had.

5 out of 5 eggsRTA15>>Even More Hardcore!

Pros: excellent coverage
802.11ac
better guest network options

Cons: none yet

Other Thoughts: Intro:
The Amped Wireless RTA15 is the company's first router that has the new 802.11ac standard. This means gigabit speeds over wireless. Finally wireless has caught up with gigabit wired LAN ports! They added even more amplifiers (700mW) to increase range even further then the R20000G. The 5GHz has two stage amplifiers that work like twin turbos to compensate for the band's normal short range. The router also features a faster processor (660 Mhz) as well.
Please note that I also have an Amped Wireless ACA1 802.11ac USB WLAN adapter. Review will come soon as well.

Setup:
The RTA15 was very easy to set up and it was just like installing the R20000G. They have basically the same UI layout for those who have the Amped Process in muscle memory. Nice. I did have a problem with the "check internet connection" thing, however the manual setup worked just fine. Reboots are way shorter than the R20000G and at just 10 seconds it really doesn't faze me. Very glad the reduced the reboot time drastically! Excellent.
For this test I have kept the network config the same as the R20000G as well with the same SSIDs and such and doing this none of my devices thought anything happened. Very smooth transition.

Performance:
Signal:
Right away I noticed a performance boost. I have about 10-18dBm stronger signal on average then the R20000G on all devices! My phone, my streaming device, and the wirelessly connected computers.
With the streaming device the 5Ghz performance was much better and videos are playing back much quicker.

Speed:
As a result of the increased range the speed over that range has increased. Videos stream stronger. IPerf tests from the streaming device are averaging 35-75Mbps vs the R20000G's 25-30Mbps (Please note the device is connected through the 5Ghz band) This is also being done from 35 ft away thru 4 walls and downstairs and the celling has fluorescent lighting. Also one of the walls has plaster. That wall eats 5Ghz for breakfast. An "unamped" router would not be able to make it.

Features:
The RTA15 has the same features the R200000G has only they have updated the UI, they added a new dashboard for quick system status, The RTA15 also has IPv6 support. The Guest networks has better bandwidth restrictions like the exact Tx and Rx values. This allows you to specify how much B/W the guests on your network can use and to prevent them from hogging all your B/W! Before it was limited to a certain set of speeds.

Overall I would give the RTA15 5 stars. Amped just keeps getting better!
