Nice 802.11n 300Mbps Wireless Router!

Nov 24, 2010
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Easy to set up and great speeds.

Cons:Not a dual-band router.

The Bottom Line: Unless you have a specific need for a dual-band router or the 5.8Ghz range this router will do very nicely for years to come.


This unit is a nice 802.11n (draft 2.0) wireless router with a great feature set for the price range.

Nice, easy to use admin console. It allows for firmware upgrades and has plenty of memory and support for DD-WRT, although I have found no flaws with the latest stock firmware. The 1Gb LAN ports are great if you use the physical connection and the 300Mbps wireless is plenty fast.

The range is affected by a number of variables but I found it to work well around my entire house. The speed will typically drop as the signal strength decreases. Also be aware that many 802.11n adapter are only good up to 150Mbps, so be sure to get one rated at 300mbps to get the full speed available. Simply follow the setup instructions and you should have no issues.

While this router works great, it is not a dual-band router. This only operates in the 2.4Ghz range. If you use an older 2.4Ghz cordless phone you could get wireless disconnects when using the phone. It may be time to get a new 5.8Ghz or a DECT phone if that is the case.

Main Features:

Four 1Gb LAN ports for physical connections.
300Mbps wireless speeds max (150+ is typical in decent range).
Easy to use admin console.
Multiple wireless security options.
Allows for DD-WRT firmware if desired.
Has a USB port for sharing storage.
