  • Died very soon

    from BRAMPTON on January 8, 2020

    I bought 2 on Dec 2014 boxing day. 1st one was bad so returned in exchange for new unit. Worked well till Dec 2019 and prudently stopped working. It did worked 5 years but again it should have not died that soon. S/N 100-19045-01R12

  • High hopes - Big disappointment

    from Ottawa on January 5, 2020

    This device was released a while ago, so the firmware is mature and I expected all the 'bugs' to be worked by now. Google "R8000 ios password" and you'll find what I experienced, which was that many people cannot connect, or unreliably connect, their iOS devices to this router. "Incorrect password" is all I could get across four different ios devices (iphone 6s, ipod touch 4 & 5 gen, ipad air). I was honestly stunned that - out of the box - NONE of my iOS devices could even login to any of the WiFi AP's. I read tips about changing channels, disabling settings, setting specific length passwords, etc all with varying reports of success. I've decided to box it up and return it, as basic compatibility like this should be a given before it leaves manufacturing. The fact it's broken after years of being released is extremely disappointing. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend the R8000.
