ESR600 N600 Dual Band 2-Way Interactive Intelligent Router with Gigabit Ports, USB and EnShare
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Worked well until 4th?! one failed! 12/17/2013

This review is from: ESR600 N600 Dual Band 2-Way Interactive Intelligent Router with Gigabit Ports, USB and EnShare

Pros: Great latency, good signal strength, relatively easy configuration (15+ second waits after setting each value are a bit annoying).

Cons: Don't last -- I had two at opposite ends of the house and here's how they lasted.
1 - 1 week (RMA'd through NewEgg)
2 - 3 weeks (RMA'd through EnGenius)
3 - 3 months
4 - DOA (new from EnGenius)

This thing does get relatively hot in use, so I bet they died due to thermal issues. It's winter in Denver, so they should have a good environment, but the air is thinner, so maybe they skimped too much on heat sinks.

  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Simple, small board that looks robust.

Didn't work initially On a Dell PowerEdge T410 which resulted in a "PCIe Training Error" and halted the boot process. I put it into an Intel S5000 system and it didn't do anything.

NewEgg did a good job and replaced it as DOA, but the second one had the exact same problem. I contacted both Dell and Adaptec. Dell never responded and Adaptec said that the board probably isn't compatible with the motherboard.

Finally, I went into the BIOS to map out the PCI IRQ's and opened up IRQ 14 such that no other cards were using it. This got rid of the "PCIe Training Error" and the board was automatically recognized by Ubuntu 9.04-amd64.

Cons: Doesn't share IRQ's nicely.

Other Thoughts: Board uses the Silicon Image Sil3132 chip, so if you have problems with other boards using the same chip, try freeing up IRQ14 (or potentially another IRQ) and see if that solves your problem.
