Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bufferbloat Did not do my "homework" before purchasing the router and now I am dealing with bufferbloat. Fix this and you will be the leader of brand name routers that addressed and corrected this issue!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful WiFi I replace a very old WR router from Linksys with this unit. It is now well over a year old. It took a lot of tinkering to get it to boot the first time, eventually I was able to flash the firmware to get past this problem. Then an automatic firmware update came in and WiFi became very erratic. Devices (cell, laptops, TV, etc.) would drop WiFi and start bouncing, sometimes WiFi would drop all together and I had to cycle power to get it to come back. I rolled the firmware back and all got better but not completely. Interesting that if the WiFi drops a hardwired device would continue to connect to the Internet. Eventually I waited for a couple of firmware updates before allowing it to update but guess what, I had to upgrade to the firmware that broke it initially and then upgrade to the current firmware!! In essence I would loose my rollback in case the new firmware was bad. I took the bait anyways but the issue with bouncing WiFi remained. Now with current firmware my devices show a connection but no internet access, even though had connected devices show a connection. Auto-channel selection doesn't work, auto-bandwith doesn't quite work either. I've been patient as I have always liked Linksys but no more. Would I recommend this? Absolutely not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth it Bought this router about a month ago. Super simple to set up and use. Only problem I had was accessing the smart wifi app; had to reset the router. Other than that, no problems at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super fast! My provider gives me <240 Mbps, on the wireless I get >200! I have been impressed with it's performance. I've only owned it a year, so I can't speak to longevity yet, but reliability is good so far.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pass over this one I've had nothing but problems with this router since day one. It consistently drops Wi-Fi. the connection speed kept slowing down from 200Gbps all the way down to 75Gbps. I wouldn't recommend this router.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Router It's a very good router. Easy to install. Like the parental control features.
