Huge clarification on firmware flashing procedure

Pros: Can flash good firmware.

Cons: Not sure.

Other Thoughts: I am thankful to firmware flashing instructions. However, one HUGE clarification. Once you click PUT and the blue bars start moving, it takes about 30-40 minutes (!!!) to finish. This whole time you need to be pressing the reset button. Make sure you are ready, have enough time, pc screen power settings are adjusted not to shut off during the 30-40 minutes of idle... etc. I was able to successfully flash the firmware but I was NOT ready for the amount of time it took!

Just great!

Pros: Far more customization than I ever thought for a router at this price. Great price. All around excellent value. As always NewEgg is the best seller to deal with.

Cons: Range is a bit limited.

Other Thoughts: It was well worth the price.

Easy

Pros: Easy setup
Easy to Reset
Surprising broadcast range.

Cons: You'll need to reset.

Other Thoughts: Seems to have trouble with more then 5 devices connected simultaneously. Logged in an expanded the IP address allocation but still has trouble. Reset (the button on the back) solves it for a week or two. Sometimes won't reset without an android device resetting it. Odd little machine. Still running it for guests but using a lynsis for day to day.

Can install OpenWRT, but now obsolete

Pros: - After some work, I got this to work with the latest stable OpenWRT (15.05.1) by re-building OpenWRT to fit in the measly 4MB of flash available on this.

Cons: - As of 2017, I'd consider this wireless router obsolete. It barely has enough flash to support new firmware, it's limited to N150, it only has 2 downstream (LAN) Ethernet ports, and it doesn't have Gigabit Ethernet.

Other Thoughts: - I wouldn't recommend buying this, but if you need wireless router and you can get this for free, it's usable.
- I'd recommend upgrading the firmware with a maintained operating system like OpenWRT or LEDE if you do use it; don't want to join any botnets.

Cons: Don't even try to use the router as it ships, with the awful On Networks firmware.

It needs to be flashed with Netgear WNR612 firmware or with DD-WRT to be useable.

(It will also work with OpenWrt, but I found that firmware to be a painful waste of time.)

Other Thoughts: Search for Eric R's excellent and informative product review, posted on 14 June 2016.

If you follow those instructions, you can turn this cheap little router into a very useful wireless bridge.

Great performance with updated firmware

Pros: Got this free after a rebate (though shipping was $5 during that offer). For five bucks I thought it was worth a try to see if it would work in a 3 story college apartment since previous reviewers mentioned the ability to get solid performance with different firmware (only 5 bucks spent, why not?) I had never heard of DD-WRT before, but read Eric R.'s review, did a bit of research on the internet and within a few hours of receiving the router had it running a recent version of DD-WRT without problems. I placed the router on a cabinet in the middle floor of the apartment and get solid WiFi connections on all 3 floors. The internet connection is a basic 25Mbps download and Speedtest shows that I get that consistently with wireless connections through the router. A few weeks of use with probably 8 devices around the apartment connected most of the time and no problems yet.

Cons: Cons? None. It was 5 bucks and I never tried the stock firmware.

Awesome Lil Machine

Pros: Well priced.
Small in size.
Firmware is flashable as indicated in other reviews.
This router has an on/off switch to shut it down at night.

Cons: N150 Rated
Runs slow when multiple Wifi devices are connected to it.
Is not wall mountable.

Other Thoughts: It's a great device once the firmware is flashed. It is very nice to be able to shut it down at night with the simple button.
