1 out of 5 eggs Drops connections like crazy - updated: replacement does exact same thing 12/07/2016

This review is from: Linksys AC3200 WRT3200ACM Open Source Ready Smart Wi-Fi Gigabit Router Supported by DD-WRT, eSATA / USB 3.0

Pros: This replaced a wrt1900ac (v.1) of which I had no problems (am using it in another location now). This router wasn't much more expensive, but had the faster processor, increased RAM, and hilgher connections speeds, so I got it. Setup is indeed very easy, and it connects to my DSL modem/router via PPOE so I can shut down the router portion of the dsl modem. I have a dyn address, and with this router each component on the home network can use the dyn address as a local address (could not do this on the modem/router). Speeds are very fast (when not dropping connections).

Cons: Updated: Replacement behaves in the same manner. Tested at 2 different locations in case the PPOE portion of the connection was causing trouble, or modem somehow was the reason. Both the cable internet and DSL internet locations (PPOE and DHCP) had crazy-frequent disconnects between all types of devices. Bottom line: this router is as worthless as teets on a bull. Changed to one egg from two. BTW, notice how almost every review is from someone who was given a free router? No filter available to weed them out.

Original: Network connections are dropped constantly (every 10-20 seconds), but for extremely short durations. You wouldn't notice it with normal internet/network traffic, but when you are doing something that mandates absolutely solid connections, the drops are ridiculously frequent. If I am connected to another computer via RDP, forget about it. You can't do anything, as you constantly get a *resetting connection* message for about 1/25th of a second, then it reconnects making the disturbance barely noticeable, but if you are transferring a file, it stops with each dropped connection. So forget about transferring files. Same type of network disconnect message on the Xbox One S during online gaming, making online gaming impossible.

Other Thoughts: I really wanted to love this router, especially since I got a smokin' holiday deal, but this connection issue is a deal-breaker if it continues (I am returning the router and hopefully the replacement is fine). I hate to wreck the love-fest of nearly perfect reviews, but this router I received is BAD! I also wanted to try the DD-WRT firmware, but decided not to since there isn't a "sponsored" or "official" version by linksys, and the DD-WRT site seems to note problems with their versions. I had an old Buffalo N-router that had an official DD-WRT version, and it was the greatest router ever. Perhaps open source firmware would solve my connections problem, but with unofficial versions, I don't want to risk "bricking" the thing, then having no way to return it. I had hoped that by now, someone's review would have included a positive experience with one of the open-source software versions, but I haven't seen any.

Pros: Mine all work. Was easy to setup. Made it through a firmware update a few days ago unscathed.

Cons: Cannot access these through pc. Bought these via an awesome daily deal without reading reviews, but now that I've read them, am dreading ever having to contact customer support. Especially love their responses "Hey, our customer support sucks, but since you have exposed our inadequacies publicly, we are going to retroactively feign concern for your well-being! We will not, however, address the concerns stated (such as what the heck happened to the reset button). Leaves me to wonder when mine are gonna screw up. Certainly never would have bought these had I read the reviews, so am glad I didn't read them first.

Pros: Only having to find one stud makes this so much easier to install! I have trouble finding studs, as the stud-finder always goes off whenever I'm holding it! OK, seriously, finding one stud is easy. Just find an outlet, and there is a stud next to it. Pull off the outlet cover and you can easily see which side the stud is on. Draw a vertical line (use string and a rock if no plumb bob is available) and you have the stud located. The thing has lasted for over 8 months without any wavering and I am very pleased.

Cons: None so far.
