Other Thoughts: I love this product on what it does and how it works. I've not had any issues with signal drops and my range is pretty good. I'm really impressed.
The CD honestly isnt needed to set this thing up, even though I used it, it didnt really customize the router. I had to do it myself again when I logged into it. Not really a biggy for me.
There are tons of things to customize, I love that but it can be overwhelming so I suggest that you get the basics done and then check and see what else to change.
Some things I dont like about this router are:
No guest access..... Honestly I have a cheaper 20 dollar router that has Guest access so I dont get why this doesnt.
- Help windows on each page...... so so so basic. I've again had cheaper routers with alot better help. For example, for 2.4 wireless, it would have a "recommend" section where it would say to use channel width 20mhz. I like having to see that the manufacturer has some input to help consumers decide or give advise. With this it's like ok I'll just guess things.
- Address reservation.... Geez this is horrible. You have to pretty much assume that the MAC address you're choosing is the right one for reserve. I have 3 Nexus 7's and I still dont know which one I reserved with 101, 102 and 103 (sure I can look at the MAC to confirm but when I'm logged into the router, there is no name I can give to it. Really annoying
- USB Settings.... AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!! I want to pull my hair with this. Where is the manual please? I've googled my behind off and still am confused. Is media share not supposed to work? How do I use Storage sharing? Hell how do I even open the darn shared folder from another PC? Someone give me a manual for Media and Storage options please! Dont even get me started with Print one. I'm still crying trying to figure out how to share my darn storage!
I havent really gotten to the other options yet, but I dont think I'll use them alot, I see a couple but I'll update this review then. Right now, I've spent at least 5 hours trying to find some way to use Media Share and Storage Sharing....... please help here TP
