Great docking station4/20/2021 2:26:30 PM

Overall Review: Before I purchased this dock from Dell, I had a TOTU docking station. I was having random disconnects and other issues. The Dell dock solved all my problems. Setup is easy and the instructions (if you need them) are easy to follow.

Great router so far1/5/2020 8:28:08 PM

Pros: Easy setup as an AP (once I removed the dd-wrt firmware) Stong signal

Cons: Was listed as new but appears to be used Had dd-wrt firmware installed Registered to another person with Netgear

Overall Review: I purchased this as a new item. When it arrived it looked new and it even had the plastic still on the box. I ran into issues trying to use the phone app to set it up since it would not take the QR code. I realized the QR code the app was telling me to use was missing. It should have been on the router but wasn't. I tried the web interface and it kept failing. I ended up using the IP address and it brought me to a screen I never saw before. The screen had dd-wrt but I was able to get into the settings of the router. I thought it was a new setup I have never seen. This was around Christmas and I decided to just forget about it. I came back to it today 1/5/2020. It still had the dd-wrt screen when I tried to access it. I even factory reset the router. I was also not getting the NETGEAR SSID but a ddwrt SSID. Since I had time I decided to google dd-wrt and discovered what it was. I realized the router might come with this firmware. I was able to setup the router as an AP but was still having other issues. I got annoyed and downloaded the latest firmware from Netgear and was able to set it up in minutes. I attempted to register it with Netgear but was informed it is already on an account. It is not on mine so I am still leaning towards the router being used. I don't know if I am going to keep it. I am a little concerned it is registered on another Netgear account. I don't know what a person can access from having the router registered on their account.
