  • Nothing but problems
    Reviewed by Cam - February 20, 2021

    I owned this router for 2 weeks and was having problems with dropped connections or failed connections from day one. It would randomly drop either the 2.4ghz signal one minute and the 5 a couple hours later. My house is 90% smart switches half of them using the 2.4 network so you can see how this is unacceptable. Even the other switches that use a HARDWIRED bridge went unresponsive on the day I decided to return it. I am not blacklisting the company as I went with Linksys after a friend recommended it however I cannot recommend this model. Purchased a TP link and have had 0 drops and effortless smart device connection.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

    I love this router! Easy setup right out of the box, gives you the ability to view who is on your network from anywhere with the app on your phone. You can give priority to individual products for gaming, streaming etc. I have had no dropped connections at all!

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
