5 out of 5 eggsGreat product Works flawlessly

Pros: Fast, Reliable, User Friendly

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Setup on this device was a breeze. No need for brand compatibility. I replaced a similar Draft N device with this one. Setup on the AC1300 took five minutes compared to the previous device at one hour plus. Streaming Live HD TV over WiFi takes major bandwidth. The N device could only manage around 300Mpbs and HD stream was bad. Now I am clocking in at around 900Mbps and HD is perfect. I use the Nighthawk Router. Distance from router is around 30ft. I bought a refurb AC1300 and it gets used daily without any problems what so ever. With these results I will be buying these for all my non 5G devices.

1 out of 5 eggsPiece of junk

Pros: Have used similar units before. Great functionality.

Cons: The wireless on my unit did not work at all. Would not pickup any wireless networks, even when sitting right next to one of the access points.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks with VMware ESXi host 5.1, but needs active cooling

Pros: This device is special because the built-in switch makes it compatible with many solution where most WiFi bridge dongles would not work. I am able to run a VMware ESXi 5.1 host over WiFi with this, whereas most other WiFi bridge dongles would not work.

Cons: The other reviews are correct - this device runs very hot. I highly recommend getting an active cooling solution. I started to have connection drops after a day or two. I eventually thought of using a laptop cooler pad to force air up through the bottom of the unit. That works like a champ, keeping the unit cool, and connectivity has been completely solid, ever since. Note that the device only supports the 5GHz band; there is no 2GHz connectivity, at all.

Other Thoughts: I host an ESXi v5.1 server and a FreeNAS 9.1 server wirelessly behind mine, and I get very good throughput over the 5GHz connection after adding an active cooling solution.

3 out of 5 eggszWUMC 710 Media Connector

Pros: Small in foot print and an excellent Newegg discounted price.

Cons: The WUMC710 Media connector has to constantly be rebooted (Power Cycled). This is a known issue for quite some time. Too bad Linksys hasn't fixed this problem yet.

1 out of 5 eggsNo range, no support

Pros: doesn't weigh much
WPS setup seemed simple enough

Cons: Would only connect via WPS when up close.
FIrmware update only worked when I reset the modem
Range of 10-20 feet max
after trying many times when it was fully confiugured.
Would not hold a connection when moved into 60ish db range.
Called Linksys tech support who told me they would not support it and didn't care I had just bought it.
proceeded to try to sell me a range extender and other products. would not let me hang up, just trying to sell me things

1 out of 5 eggsDead within a week

Pros: I don't know of any, I never actually got to use it.

Cons: Died within one week of having used it.

Other Thoughts: I received this order from Newegg and was in the process of upgrading my network. This device sat idle for about 3 weeks on the shelf in my office while I finalized some of the other backbone devices. Once I plugged this device in, it seemed to work fine, but was too far from my Airport Extreme. So, when I went to move it closer, the device did not actually turn on. No lights, nothing. I had it plugged in for no longer than a week and it died.

I am sure that this device works well for some. I can say that the range is not the best. But that is really all that I was able to determine based on the short life.

And... as I let it sit on the shelf for 3 weeks, the 30 day warranty is now up. Guess that is a lesson learned. Both for me to open and test sooner, as well as finding a vendor with a better warranty period.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi William,

Our apologies if we were not able to meet your expectations. Allow us to make this right for you. Have you already reset the device while it's powered ON? If not, we suggest that you reset the WUMC710 for 30 seconds and try to set it up again.

The following links may help you with the re-installation process:

To further isolate this, you may also use a different power adapter or another AC outlet. If the suggested steps won't work, you may also try to manually perform a firmware update. Please refer to this link: http://support.linksys.com/en-us/support/bridges/WUMC710 and click download > select Version 1.0 and download the correct firmware.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Product

Pros: This brings me faster connection speeds then a USB wireless adapter on my desktop. The setup was easy and very straight forward if you are familiar with this brand. My whole network is running Linksys Cisco products which made life easy. I have two of these and I am able to connect up my game consoles on one and my desktop on another with no connection problems. When not in use I unplug them and plug them in when needed and they both hold sets great. I do a lot of installing from XP to Win7 for friends and family and this allows me to connect four machines at a time. This means it cuts my install time down and make me more productive.

Cons: I have NOT found anything wrong with running this on my home network.
