BR-6208AC AC750 Dualband Router, 3 High Gain Antennas for Better Range, iQ-Setup Easy to Install, Supports Access Point / Range Extender / Wi-Fi Bridge / WISP mode
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Affordable
-Very Easy Setup
-Did I say flexible

Cons: -Not the prettiest router/access point/extender
-Cannot turn the LED lights off
-The icons that identify what the LED lights mean is on the bottom of the router (why???)
-Kind of big (seems bigger than it needs to be)
-Antennas are not removeable

Other Thoughts: I bought two of these to help cover my two story home. I have a Sagecom F@st 1704 DSL modem router that did not effectively reach both floors and all corners. So, my idea was to get tow of these and use powerline ethernet adapters to connect them to the modem and use them as access points. They seem to work very well and I am well covered on both floors now. They have been very stable. I have had a little problem with one location but the problem was the powerline adapter getting noise from something else plugged in nearby.

The firmware that was loaded on the device as new was not that great. But after an update there are some new bells and whistles including automatic checking of firmware updates. The setup is EXTREMELY easy. You just pick which function you want it to have; router, access point, extender, wifi bridge, or WISP. I have only used these things as access points, but they are working very well, I haven't had to restart them.

For the money, hard to beat. Throughput seems good enough and I really don't have any major complaints. I would recommend this router.

5 out of 5 eggs Easy Setup 06/19/2013

ZyXEL NBG5715 Simultaneous Dual-Band Wireless N900 Media Router IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Worked right out of the box.
The "beginner/easy" setting allows ANYONE to setup this router to work.
The Form Factor is what EVERY router should be. Antenna locations and ethernet connections really are convenient.
On-Off switch for lights
Push button connection
Have not had to reset one time.

Cons: The firmware that came with the unit was out of date.
The new firmware is a big improvement, BUT still needs more refining.
The USB port connection for an external drive does not consistently work and the software you install to link to it is wonky/noisy. Cannot turn off the sound.

Other Thoughts: Wish I could set it up to connect to the hard drive connected to the USB port remotely. Maybe it can be done, but I cannot figure it out.
