This review is from: Edimax EW-7438RPn V2 300Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender, Repeater, Wireless Bridge, Access Point, Wall Plug design, Smart LED Signal Indicator, Easy iQSetup by Smart Phone (No CD Required)
Pros: Very easy setup. Did it once and the thing just works. I use it primarily for my wifeless HP printer and a failsafe for the mobile devices that will likely wander out of the range of the WiFi router in my basement. Does not seem to have any trouble re-connecting when I reboot the router. I've used it to extend the range of both a DLink DIR-825 and an ASUS RT-AC66U.
Cons: Would be nice if it was a bit slimer. Have in a hallway and it occasionally gets bumped.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS RT-AC66W Dual-Band Wireless-AC1750 Gigabit Router
Pros: Excellent range but i was most impressed with the quality of ASUS's firmware. I bought this specific router so that I could flash OpenWRT/DD-WRT but once I started using it I did not see the need. Everything is laid out logically. This router replaced my old DLink DIR-825. The difference in quality is like night and day. The DLink would drop connections once too many (15+) clients had connected. No problems like this so far with the ASUS.
Cons: None so far.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: D-Link Xtreme N Dual-Band Gigabit Router (DIR-825) Wireless N600
Pros: Lots of features: dual band, IPV6, gigabit wired.
- Easy setup
- Supposedly can be flashed with DD-WRT but I was unable to do so.
- Most of the time it works pretty good.
Cons: I've had this router for several years now. It's an older revision B1 model. As the number of wireless devices that needed to use this router increased I started noticing more and more problems. I'd have devices lose connections spontaneously, my Squeezebox started buffering Pandora, I even had instances where a wired machine would sporadically be unable to ping the router (and Internet) but would still be able to ping internal hosts. (fixed with a router reboot). Perhaps some problems were caused by physical failures, but some certainly were present from the start. All connectivity issues were resolved when I replaced it with an ASUS RT-AC66W. ...and the ASUS was cheaper. It can not compare to the quality of the ASUS web interface software.
Other Thoughts: I tried flashing this router with replacement firmware (dd-wrt & open-wrt) but it simply refused to accept the new firmware. Others have had success with this B1 model, but I did not.READ FULL REVIEW
