    Very expensive router bought it for the data usage monitoring because I wanted to see which device on my network was using so much data but it only looks at bandwidth not data usage and only in real time it has no logging feature so you would have to sit there all day and keep refreshing it to see who's using just the bandwidth really useless feature. So I thought I would use it as external storage like a NAS device so I hooked up a WD MyBook 8TB to the USB port no good doesn't like a drive that big so I partitioned it as 2 4TB drives seemed to work at first did lots of backups then it started to just delete my backups they are just gone hours of backing up deleted can't trust this router with my data what a headache. I made sure the firmware was up to date and I really don't want to do the DD-WRT firmware thing it really should work out of the box I hope Linksys can address these issues in future firmware updates. Seems OK as just a regular router but I would have not spent so much if I just wanted a regular router. Sorry I can't really recommend this router.


  • Not A VPN Device Honestly

    I belongs to IT background and I found on google many techs say it is one of the best DD-WRT router for VPN (Virtual Private Network). It is good but if you have less than 50 Mbps speed from your ISP. DO NOT BUY this for high speed VPN because Linksys official firmware has no option to run OpenVPN client until and unless you install the DDWRT firmware (third party) on it which requires knowledge of networking. I did that too and in result my 350 Mbps connection became 50 Mbps. I know over VPN I will loose some bandwidth but not 80% of my bandnwidth which is insane. When I contacted DDWRT they said this router can handle upmost 40 Mbps with VPN. But now I am using ASUS RT-AC3100 (with official OpenVPN client) and the speeds are in between 220-250 Mbps over VPN. I must say high speed VPN lovers MUST try ASUS-RT3100 or Asus-AC86U they both are rock solid Vpn routers and no connection drops with official Asus firmware and woth Merlin firmware. Do not waste your time on configuring this router (if you are a real VPN user) with DD-WRT because you will go back to bestbuy and end up buying with Asus for damn sure. This roiter is pretty good if you do not want to configure VPN. Thank you to bestbuy for returning this router without any questions asked. Eventually I am happy with ASUS purchase.


  • Fantastic upgrade

    I felt it was time to update our home internet security and performance. Replaced our old outdated Linksys with this Gigabit beast and it’s a breath of fresh air. Fast setup and solid connectivity. Basement installed and strong WiFi signals everywhere. Enabled me to remove a Ubiquiti AP and natively connect all devices. Also configured it as an ExpressVPN node and couldn’t be happier. Great unit.
