Tenda W1800R Wireless AC1750 Dual Band Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: The price was the best part so far, it was a reasonable price and in other reviews it was stated that it was the same hardware as the Asus Model RT-AC66U which was another pro.

Cons: The set up was hard the software web interface was kind of jerky not to mention the game that you have play in order to set up the date which would take at first. The router at first would connect to my ISP , I had to reboot my cable modem twice in order to get it connected. The interface is quirky and not very good. As I read the other reviews that stated ti was the same router as the Asus I wondered if it could use the same firmware. I didn't try it but researched it and came to the conclusion that it would probably work and hopefully much better than the original firmware from Tenda. After reading informative comments from individuals experienced with working with this router from this site and some research I decided to give the Shippy Tomatoe 1.28 firmware a try. It's not because the original firmware wouldn't work but I'd like a better interface and more features that were available using Tomatoe firmware. So far so good, Tomatoe built in someone back room was rock solid and fairly intuitive if you are a technophobe. It really would be too much for the average Joe with alot more features that many people could or would use. Other thoughts are that the unit runs a little hot but nothing to worry about. Given I don't have much to time to tweak the router much initially, I will attempt to put it through it's paces. But it does work.

Other Thoughts: The whole reason for buying this router was to get better coverage throughout the house and in the detached garage without using an access point. My other router bought refurbished from this site was working fine but was quite reaching all the way to the detached garage. I'm finding more coverage but at the cost of download speeds that seem to be higher with my other router a, lnksys E3000 seemed to a little faster than the Tenda router. I"m just saying speed is everything if your a geek!
