Intel Centrino 6235 IEEE 802.11 Dual Band N600 Mini PCI Express Wi-Fi plus Bluetooth 4.0 Combo Adapter, 2.4GHz 300Mbps/5GHz 300Mbps-OEM
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Wi-fi works well.

Cons: No bluetooth. Standard Intel installation package (from http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/highlights/wireless/can-6235) doesn't make a difference. Tried older packages with the same result.

Other Thoughts: Doesn't make sense at all: I bought it because if bluetooth and it doesn't exist, I suspect.

D-Link DIR-855L Wireless N900 Simultaneous Dual-Band Gigabit Router w/ SmartBeam Technology IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Looks impressive - some people will love such design.
Very easy to get internet operational. Almost plug and play.
Fast LAN ports. So fast, that my computer's HDD became a bottleneck when copying a large file to it.

Cons: A mediocre coverage, both on 2.4 and 5 GHz. I am surprised that other people praised this router for a good coverage. Forget about HD video or transer of large files over Wi-Fi.
The firmware is unhandy to use; slow responding (many other routers are the same), with some features lacking (only three settings for power: high, medium, and low), no chance to set DD-WRT or Tomato. In addition to all, it requires restart after making any change (each takes between 60-120 sec).
The cloud service requires registration on D-Link website. Tested it for several hours (with HDD attached): slow and clumsy, compared with what I've experienced with routers from other companies.

Other Thoughts: I have plenty of people in surrounding area who use 2.4 GHz networks, so this may explain a bad coverage. Nobody around me uses 5 GHz so far, but the signal droped below -70 dB in 3-4 meters withing the same living room (with link speed at 14 Mbps). This is what I cannot understand.
Overall, this router makes an overall bad impression. I would expect to get a decent router for this price.

NETGEAR WNDR3400 N600 Wireless Router Simultaneous Dual Band IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n 2.4/5GHz 10/100 Mbps Ethernet Port x4
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Looks great. Lovely blue light in the middle.
NewEgg customer support was great - they sent me a replacement right after I told that the previous one is DOA (sorry, not sure it is relevant to "PROS").
Relatively easy to set up.

Cons: The 2.4 band keeps disconnecting every 2-10 minutes (can I attach the picure from inSSIDer to my review?). 5GHz stays OK. The computer reconnects, but, for example, watching video on another device is impossible. Not talking about Skype, even copying a 500 MB file may fail because of these drops.

Other Thoughts: DD-WRT software for this router exists, but people online advised me against installing it. Stayed with a NetGeat firmware.
I understand that the unit (WNDR3400) I received is faulty, but since this is already the replacement one, it now went to the garbage can. Not worth time spent.
