D-Link DIR-890L/R Wireless AC3200 Ultra Tri-Band Gigabit Router, AC Smartbeam technology
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Fast.. huge range, signal blasts through walls like a boss

Cons: Big, but who cares if it's in the right spot

Other Thoughts: At first, great range.. but slooooowwww wifi.. was getting at max 14Mbps .. ya.. that was it.. That was first install with firmware out of the box. I let it check the version and it only found 1.02.. same results.. slowwwwwww.. This was running speedtest dot net.. 100Mbps to the house from cable so I expected a lot better over wireless especially from this monster. Something obviously wrong. Downloaded and upgraded to the 1.03 firmware from dlink website. Boom.. pegged out speedtest after that 120Mbps now.. We'll see if that holds. I'm really not pleased that this router wouldn't have worked without the 1.03 firmware update though.. took a few months for them to release that, so had I not waited to install until after 1.03 was out, I would have been really ticked off with those bad speeds. I lucked out though and just installed and got it up to 1.03

ASUS GX-D1081 Power-Saving Gigabit Switch

1 out of 5 eggs terrible product 09/09/2011

This review is from: ASUS GX-D1081 Power-Saving Gigabit Switch

Pros: looks nice.

Cons: doesn't work. I've tried it all. I have to constantly cycle the power on it when anything that is plugged into it turns on or off. it's literally pure luck for it to work at all. My cheap little linksys has no problems, I was just upgrading to a gigabit switch. RMAing this piece of junk. I cannot believe there are so many good ratings on this thing.
