Product Reviews
Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by I just started using it and so far so good It's somewhat difficult to mount on a wall since there are no holes on the case. I had to install some L-shaped brackets on the wall but other than that it's been great so far. June 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My current home router. Absolutely awesome with tons of features, including TrendMicro, Tor, OpenVPN, etc... (Use the Merlin firmware for all of them.) April 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by I put one of these units into a SoHo office and it is working great. The speed and connectivity is spot on. The features that are available making it very flexible. Even the VPN feature is reliable. July 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Router This router keeps up with my 60Mb internet speed with no problems October 15, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by It's a decent product and a very stable one. Even for novices, navigating through the menus and explanations are not a chore. Good job here, drop the price a little and it will be even better. June 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Absolute top notch router. Out of the box and on the shelf setup takes less than an hour. The only qualm i have is that most devices in a home environment aren't currently up to date in supporting AC technology. May 20, 2014
