Versatile router with good range and easy set up
on October 26, 2014
The Edimax BR-6208AC router serves well as a primary router, access point, and range extender.
The installation was a breeze. No CD. Follow the steps, and you'll be well on your way. Anyone, even with minimal knowledge can install this router according to their needs. Type in "edimax.setup" on your browser after powering on and connecting the router, and follow the wizard style setup.
5 modes - router, access point, range extender, wireless bridge, and WISP.
I primarily use this as an access point, which is good for managing/diverting traffic for your home network. Speeds are on par with the main router I am currently using. This router shines as an access point. 4 channels of 5 GHZ. 4 channels of 2.4 Ghz. The 5 GHZ channel is a monster. As you may know, 5 GHz channels tend to have a stronger signal, less range, and less interference. In our two story house, signal is still solid through one floor and a couple walls.

As a router, you may enable the iQoS. Useful tool for managing bandwidth, checking which devices are connected, managing networks. etc.
As an access point, there's not a whole lot different than the router. Some notable tools are changing channel width and managing networks.
Experience with router
After about a week, I haven't had any hiccups. The top highlight review for this product seemed to have countless, buggy issues. I didn't experience any issues while installing or using this router. It appears major issues have been polished out. Will update if anything does surface.
This router is versatile and is best used as an extender or access point, a supplement to your home network.
