    It worked fine when it was new and we didn’t have many devices on it. But as we transitioned devices over from our old WiFi router, it has become unreliable. Constantly has issues with devices that refuse to connect until it is rebooted. No wonder the firmware has an option for a daily reboot! Also if you’re thinking of using the built in VPN software, don’t! The OpenVPN version is ancient and uses outdated protocols. The PPTP server has an admin/admin login that gets automatically added periodically. You can delete it, but it will come back. Useless! Unfortunately we didn’t realize how terrible this device is until after the return period. Don’t buy this!

    Update 2: Firmware issue fixed my dropped connections in the morning. Ran speed tests. Same speeds. Seems to be same signal strength.

    Update: Well…I’ve set it to reboot every day now. And oddly some mornings there’s just no wifi signal. So I have to go over and reboot it. I’m thinking of updating the firmware package to see if this resolves that issue. I’ll post once i have this issue fixed.

    I bought a Nighthawk prior to this. But the nighthawk was a pain setting up as you had to get an app, create an account, and then I still never saw great speeds even on 5ghz. This thing blows that nighthawk out of the water (and was about $30 more). The nighthawk also dropped my cisco vpn alot. NOT COOL.

    With this router:
    Signal is great. I can walk down the street a few houses and get signal (not great, but usable). It works great for our square 2,300sqft house just fine. I bought an extender – but found we didn’t need it.
    Speed is great. I get full use out of my 200mbs connection to my provider.

    2ghz I get about 60mbs. 5ghz I get 210mbs.

    The modem I’m using is a Motorola 24×8. It works well with that.
    I haven’t seen any signal drops. My VPN stays connected all day (which is rather important these days given covid).
    It runs cool to the touch (big factor as I’m always paranoid about house fires and cheap poorly built electronics).
    I have it auto reboot every sunday (which is a great feature you can set in the menu).
    I’m using the firmware out of the box. I did not update the firmware. With routers, I tend to only update the firmware if I see a problem that needs resolution.
    Setup was easy. Plug in router to modem. Turn modem and router off. Turn modem on. Turn router on. Pair computer to wifi. go to 192.168.1.1 in browser. setup wifi and password. Done. Great interface too on this router.

    Very happy i brought this. Should my experience turn the other way I’ll be sure to update this review.

    No time wasted, i will procede directly to pros and cons:

    Pros (with a HUGE *):
    1. Good 2.4 and 5.0 speed
    2. Good ethernet speed (1000mbps)
    3. Good software features

    Cons:
    1. The huge * itself, which is POOR RANGE. Now allow me to elaborate. I was trying to setup an extender which is about 15 meters away, with only a glass door in between and clear line of sight. I go to the extender position and look at the signal strength and WOW 5 bars, almost no signal lost (at least i believed) even in my garage where wifi has never reached i got 1 bar. So theoretically this had GREAT range. But no. As soon as my extender connected, the connection dropped and SSID even dissapeared. That was weird, so i pulled out my cellphone thinking the extender was bad. Same result, got 5 bars signal but as soon as i connected, connection dropped and SSID disappeared. Tested 2 more cellphones, 2 laptops, a Nintendo Switch, all to which gave me the exact same result. I closed in to the router with all devices and with a whole day of testing concluded that the signal could be reliably held with ANY device being 5 meters or closer. Thats right, 5 meters. Then i thought, maybe my house is over a iron ore or something. No, i bout a $20 linksys ac1200 and could easily reach the extender 15m away and even more with a stable and reliable signal. Curious is that at about 20m, this router does “appear” to have more signal strength than the ac1200, but as soon as connection is attempted, connection drops and SSID dissapears.

    I would have given it 0 stars, but i guess anything in a 5m radius works well. but totally a BAD ROUTER if what you are looking for is range. If all your devices are 5m o nearer then i guess this is good for that.

    Tried all firmwares on the support page and nothing fixed this issue.
