I was pleasantly surprised by this product. It wasn't something I needed or desired, it was more of me just wanting to support the company, and I was tired of people complaining when they couldn't connect to the 'wi-fi' causing me to reset my router. (frustrating)
On to the review:
Ease of Use: ☆☆☆☆☆
Literally, plug and play. All you need to know is 188.8.131.52, and you can set a new password, and rename the device.
Very slim, very attractive, very lightweight.
Increased my internet speed drastically.
For a Duel Band router of this quality, $40 is not much.
One issue is the bottom of the device becomes extremely hot. Hopefully this is not a concern.
The power adapter is a brick, but built sideways to not block other ports. THANK YOU....one of the few companies who understands my complaints!
If you have a default "free" router from some company, or an outdated router...buy this, and see what it can do!
Few Minor Issues:
It seems as if the NAT is not "Open" with this router. I don't know what this means, but there's no option in the router settings to change this.
All I know is online when playing Multiplayer games it'll say "matchmaking might be slow do to a limited or closed NAT connection", which also might slow down your entire network depending on what the NAT actually effects. (I believe it's the amount of incoming and out-going connections, but I'm not sure) If that's the case than say...downloading a torrent could be slowed as torrents require multiple peers (people) who give you parts of the data to whatever it is your downloading. I'd be interested to know if there's any work around to this. Other routers simply have an option to "Open NAT"...which does make online matchmaking in video games much faster. Might make other things faster to, but it's hard to tell what NAT means.
So far, customer service has been great, and I am awaiting my replacement. Hopefully this one will work better.
A month or so later... The replacement unit has worked much better. There is still occasionally an issue of difficult restart after it's been off all night, but this problem occurs less than before. Also, I have not once (so far, fingers crossed) been kicked off while in use, as had occurred with the first unit. Updated from 3 to 4 stars.
I currently have 3mbps DSL and this router works great. I wireless-ly run my Playstation 3 online and smart phone via 2.4GHz while keeping my laptop wired.
By following the directions from the box set up was a breeze.The directions on how to connect and use the security feature were awesome. I have little to no experience in routers but by following the step-by-step directions I was able to un-package, connect, and set up the security in about 30 minutes.
Easy set up
Nothing at this point!
I would definitely recommend this to any normal household person. It fits all my needs. Looking back I probably could have saved money by not buying a Duel Band since nothing I own will connect to the 5GHz but I am glad I will have it for whenever I do. I love this product!
The seller sent me a replacement unit, as the first one was defective.
The initial setup seemed simple at first. I found the firmware to be very basic, and many of the common options like port forwarding are very difficult at first to locate in the settings. I found that Upnp did not function well with a couple of my devices/software at first. (ie Xbox 360s, Playon Media Server). After over an hour of trying to get it to work properly I went to the download area of their website and found the firmware on the router itself seemed newer then the one that is available for download. In then end it was not working properly so I flashed it with the firmware on the website. (V184.108.40.206_OCW01)
Even after flashing it I found some of the settings dont seem to apply properly in the router unless you reboot it each time to apply them, even if not prompted to. (i.e. enable upnp is a checkbox but it didnt seem to work properly till after applying then manually rebooting)
It took 2-3 hours of constant rebooting and applying settings, but the router is finally working. One thing I do notice is that the DHCP clients list, wireless clients list, and upnp port lists do not seem to update immediately at times.
With just Upnp enabled my Xbox 360s would get port errors connecting to Xbox Live. I set it up with a static IP using the MAC to lock in the DHCP assignemnt, then made it the DMZ and rebooted. After I did that it finally worked. So for the sake of testing I unchecked and removed it as DMZ and disabled it and it still worked after another reboot. So there seems to be some issues in my opinion that the firmware is inconsistant.
In the wireless connection list (in the 2.4 ghz band) it shows my wireless devices topping out at 54 Mbps. The first unit I had that ended up being replaced showed speeds in the 80-90Mbps range for my Ipad and other wireless devices. (This could be a firmware reporting issue or the fact that I've essentially downgraded the firmware to the only one they have on their website)I have also disabled the 5 Ghz band and honestly notice no real improvement in speeds from my old WRT54g in any connected devices.
The unit has been running stable for 3 days now, but it definately needs the newer firmware that Anker says is coming to address several issues in my opinion.
