An amazing device for the price -- but no true gigabit wan (even with HW offloading)
on October 13, 2017
All in all, this is an amazing little device, and practically a steal at around $100 USD. I would recommend it to anyone that doesn't need more than like 300 MBPS up or down. It's easy to configure (even easier with the newest OS which has "wizards" for the most common setups). Even cooler is that you can SSH into it to access the command-line, and cooler still is that you can access the CLI interface through the web UI.
I used it with much success on my old Xfinity/Comcast internet (125 up / 25 down). UPNP worked right out of the box, my ping improved (upgrading from ASUS router).
I have since dropped Xfinity, and switched to a new ISP with true gigabit speeds. It only gets 4 stars because, even with all the hardware offloading features enabled, I top out at ~600 MBPS down. When connected directly to my ISP's hardware (AT&T GigaFiber gateway), I get >950 MBPS, so this device is clearly the limiting factor there. It's a real shame too -- I've loved using this device, but can't have it getting in the way of my gigabit pipe. It'll soon be a hand-me-up when my parents need to upgrade their router.
