Overall Review: I love the router, it works great. Paired it with an Arris SB6190 modem/gateway that was a refurb so I got it super cheap....Love newegg for that.
Compared to using the Comcast Provided gateway, router combination device (that was 13/month rental) This is significantly faster...to my desktop over wired ethernet. Have not tested the wireless speed, but I can tell it is faster just by feel so far. Download speed was about 90-110Mbit on Comcast hardware, now I have a more consistent speed pegged right on 129Mbit all the time, lower latency also.
Couldn't be happier, and the price I got it at, was a steal.....
THE ONLY complaint I have, is that the administrator login password can be changed....which is great....BUT, it does not allow special characters, and is only allowed to be 10 characters long. I find that ODD, but I don't think I need to worry as much as I do about it. I'm pursuing a Security+ certification, so I feel silly using such an arguable weak password when I know better.....but I had no way of knowing that before I bought it. The wifi access passwords can be whatever you want though, so that is definitely fine. And it's protected pretty well from brute force password attacks because it locks after a certain number of attempts...Anyways.....go Buy one...you'll be happy.
