4 out of 5 eggsGreat with DD-WRT

Pros: You get gig switching and 802.11n for under $60, and it has the ability to flash to DD-WRT.

Cons: Flashing to DD-WRT requires doing a tftp transfer from windows command prompt. Not a big deal for me, but might be a no go for users who are intimidated by the command line. Also, with only 16mb of RAM, DD-WRT will lag a bit in responsiveness if you are trying to actively monitor bandwidth usage while doing a full throttle file transfer between two pcs.

Other Thoughts: I'm a network engineer, so maybe I'm a bit too forgiving with this review because I can generally get just about anything that will run DD-WRT to work the way I want it to. Others might not be as successful.

3 out of 5 eggsUsed as Gb AP

Pros: Configuration has a wireless mode switch so you can choose AP, bridge, repeater, etc. I didn't test them out. I just used AP. There's a software restart. I didn't think this was a big deal, until I got a $100+ Netgear WNDR3700 which doesn't have it.

Cons: Remote admin access is only from a specific IP. This alone would prevent me from using this as a router. Daylight Savings config is useless. The Static DHCP table, Wifi MAC filter table, and logs are all too limited for my use as router. There's just enough feature so they can get the bullet item in the data sheet. Menus are tedious, but they get you there.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this to use as a Gb switch and N access point. I thought the price was good if it could do this (so far, it's working fine). I had no expectations to ever use this as a router. If you don't expect your router to do much, you might look into this as a less expensive alternative to, say, TrendNet which also has bullet item mentality.

1 out of 5 eggsTERRIBLE ROUTER

Pros: None

Cons: This is an absolutely terrible router. It doesn't support changing the gateway on the DHCP client, and doesn't even use my 15 dBi Hawking antenna when I plug it in! I have a US Robotics router that uses the antenna absolutely fine, so I know it's the router. Wireless N doesn't even work, I've never achieved a bitrate higher than 54 Mb/sec, even when I was right next to it with my laptop. This router is an absolute waste of money, and I feel bad for anyone who buys it.

2 out of 5 eggsNice look, mediocre firmware

Pros: Nice look, basic functions work.

Cons: Background. My home network consist of two segments served by two chained routers: WAN - router 1 - LAN1 (semi-open) - router2 - LAN2 (closed). Edimax wireless router was installed as router 1 instead retired NetGear b/g one.
Firmware on Edimax was updated to version 1.33. Update was smooth simple and smooth. However during setting router up I found quite a few issues, I briefly listed below:
1. If LAN IP range is changed from default 192.168.2.xxx (I tried 192.168.15.xxx, 192.168.11.xxx), built-in DHCP server doesn't work for wireless clients. As a workaround I had to move LAN2 from 192.168.2.xxx to 192.168.10.xxx.
2. If static DHCP lease is defined, EZView doesn't show client's name and indicates that client is OFFLINE in port forwarding table. Port forwarding works though. If static IP address is assigned to computer (outside of DHCP range, of course) or dynamic lease is used, router shows computer's name and status properly.

Other Thoughts: Cons (continue):

3. Any settings assigned through Advanced EZView (e.g. port forwarding, blocking, etc) are not stored and are forgotten after router restart on "Apply" button.
4. Static IP WAN configuration page has only one field for DNS server. You can't specify secondary DNS.
5. I could not connect to 802.11n network from any of three my notebooks (Sony VGN-AW190, Lenovo Y310, P-7801u FX).
6. When WPA2 was specified wireless clients were able to connect to the network, but none of them was able to get IP address from router's DHCP server. Switching to less secure TKIP solved problem, but I am not happy with such solution.
