- Guest WIFI would cut out randomly

- The LAN ports would cut out with the guest wifi (huh?)

Ive been sick so sorry for the late review.
For these test I use this router for 2 weeks as my main router to make sure I make proper reviews. These reviews are done on my Main network and stress tested through streaming/file transfers/gaming/regular use. I use this router as anyone else would to simulate normal usage to a regular low knowledge / mid knowledge individual.
If none of this means anything to you here is a short summary of my review:
Cons outweigh pros. Look at other Linksys products. This one is not so great.
I make sure the firmware is up to date before benching.
