5 out of 5 eggsDraft N on the Cheap - Update to Previous Review

Pros: If you upgrade the Firmware to V1.41 this router is great! Shipping firmware caused significant number of dropped connections, this has been fixed. I have no problems connecting with different brands of adapters. Range coverage: I'm in a 2 story on .5 acres and have no problems getting connection in and around the house.

Cons: US Page is not current go to www.edimax.com for latest firmware updates.

Other Thoughts: I now have no regrets with this router, before the firmware update I was considering buying another but have no problems now!!! Cheap and works!!

2 out of 5 eggsSTAY AWAY FROM THIS ONE!

Pros: Nice look and cheap

Cons: That being said, stay away from it. I bought the first one and was very happy with it for about 6 months. I did notice, however, that when you first power it up it connects and disconnects repeatedly for awhile. Once it settles down I had a solid 270m to 300m connection. Since I was so happy with it, I bought a second one to take on the road. I've had it for about 6 months, now. This last week, both of them ceased to function. First the radio went out, then everything. I went back to an old G router I had replaced with the Edimax, and it's working just fine. Slower speed, of course.

Other Thoughts: I also bought Edimax cards for all of the computers. They seem to be working just fine and have given me no problems at all. I need a solid N router for transferring short video files but just can't seem to find one that will last! What's up with that?!

4 out of 5 eggsWireless N on the cheap

Pros: Price. It works and has better range and throughput than my other namebrand MIMO router.

Cons: Dropped connections. I never had this problem with my name brand router.

Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for. I haven't tried their support yet but their webpage is weak for updates. I am going to flash the firmware update to see if it helps with the dropped connections.

1 out of 5 eggshorrid

Pros: sleek and stylish. illusion of expensive equipment. makes for a decent hub. when it works the wifi is good for burst transfers.
cheap.

Cons: disconnects constantly, signal isnt great but its not bad either.
wifi on this thing is a joke - it disconnects CONSTANTLY. even wired is annoying. if the wifi doesnt lose signal, the router itself will lose the modem's config and disconnect until you refresh it manually.
the firewall/port forwarding/dmz is a joke. i've never had so much trouble trying to assign a dmz to a system. even as dmz the ports are still blocked

Other Thoughts: you get what you pay for. at 3ft i get a good signal strength and only lose connection oh once every 30 minutes to an hour with 3 minutes to reconnect. i use an edimax wifi adapter for my pc (usb and pci variety) and they constantly disconnect.

4 out of 5 eggsnot bad

Pros: built on linux technology, RJ-45 connections are very stable, no disconnects. PPPoE is also stable, no disconnects, low power consumption/low heat, rudimentary QoS helps keep skype up and my VPN traffic gets top priority.
WPA/TKIP appears to be stable.
The wireless range is good, I reduced xmit power to 10% but the signal is good nevertheless.

Cons: fast ethernet throughput is about 40% slower than my previous switch.
I have trouble connecting my broadcom 4321ag card in 802.l1 draft N mode (it usually connects at wireless G speeds), and I have trouble connecting in WPA2/AES mode but to be fair I don't know if this is a broadcom or edimax problem.

Other Thoughts: The QoS feature is pretty rudimentary but it's better than nothing, it takes a few seconds to kick in but then it does work. I tested it while downloading a huge file, and from 350kb/sec the throughput dropped to 9kb/sec while QoS was active, just as expected.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Well it is N standard so it was alot faster than B and G standard that I'm used to

Cons: For some reason this thing would not stay connected I had to restart my wifi pci card several times which is also an edimax product. Alot of times I was also unable to ping the router and I had to do a hard reset to bring it back to life

Other Thoughts: Hmm I suppose it's an okay router I was hoping I could replace my linksys wrtgl router with this one but my Linksys one is just all around better and cheaper to.

5 out of 5 eggsFast and Full Featured

Pros: Wow. This thing is fast and has great range. I've tested video streams to multiple machines and even at a distance and it doesn't hiccup at all. I've paired this with the Edimax PCI card and existing cards from other vendors and have had no problems even using WPA2, MAC filtering, etc. On top of being lighting fast the price is hard to beat. It has extemely granular configuration just like the PCI card.

Cons: All security features are disabled by default so check it thoroughly. DHCP client list either blank or not accurate. You have to reboot the system if you change anything on it, but luckily it has a fast reboot time.

Other Thoughts: I'm replacing a Belkin N1 router/PCI card combination which was really pathetic. The router would drop constantly even from 10 feet away and the throughput just awful with any wireless NIC. Anybody want to buy some Belkin trash?
