I thought I was getting a great deal for price since was cheaper to get with hdd than without. I have a 24 port switch with wired network so the extra 3 ports don't matter to me but all I got was a few hours of frustration. Calling newegg on Monday to return this router, I have never been so discussed with WD ever.

I updated to latest firmware before setting anything up, so I know isn't the router firmware.
