One folded quick install guide, which is not really needed. I took a picture of the old router, my ASUS RTN-66U next to this big MONSTER of a thing.
I love the ZyXEL, it seems to be lighter in weight as the ASUS. I transfered all the wires over to the big , did I mention it is BIG, ZyXEL Router and walked to my Workstation in the other room. I opened a web browser and it was already on the main page of the router, had to type the 1234 password to get into it and started to configure it, which is very easy. I must say I do miss the ASUS GUI a bit and question the so called Advanced mode button on the right side of the screen.... The interface is OK, is getting used to, but I am easy going quick adaptable so not realy an issue. I di did notice that the WiFi Signal in this corner is MUCH stronger as that of the old Router, which is great as it is ONE of the reasons I was looking to find an replacement. I have several cell phones, notebook/Laptops, workstation, Smart-TV, Google ChromeCast devices so I am sure to find out soon enough how stable this device will be. OH before I forget, I had prior to the arrival of the ZyXEL already downloaded the latest BIOS, but I did try and use the option to look online for an updated bios version and it found the version ,V1.00(AAWB.3)C0 the factory version was the B.1.
On the current Wifi devices I have a 600Mbps and one 1733Mbps and my Workstation LAN is 1Gig, so all looks great. I will try to get some more feedback after I have played a little with it. This deal is a steal, I paid $ 119 for it while others post it for well over $ 200 even Amazon has a different post like that, odd but hey a smart purchase monkey such as myself always finds the better deal. So far the WiFi is strong and Stable so if that keeps up I will be in heaven and for far less as all the other brands like D-Link, Linksys, Netgear, Asus, and others I am familiar with ALL of them. I would have gone for an ASUS but the cost for this device, plus IT being MU-MIMO and is one of he few with the fastest chipset in it... anyways that is all for now fooks...I am happy humming right now, two thumbs up for everything, I got it one week earlier as was promised so woohooo :)
I got this from a friend and was interested in trying it out. I have some basic technical skills, but by no means am an expert on this stuff, so this is more of an experience review, rather than technical expert.
TL:DR - I expected it to work, just not this well - Excellent, easy to setup and better output than specs on box
I have a small home network, a few computers, xbox one, iphones and some tablets. Probably about average for a small family.
This unit replaced a fairly recent unit that was less than a year old. I wanted to compare the difference before I hooked it up, so I googled some specs and even read a couple of forum posts out of curiosity. What I found was that the ZyXEL Armor Z2 had about the same specs as my old unit from another manufacturer. Pretty much similar list of features, processing etc.There was however a difference in cost - the ZyXEL Armor Z2 is about $100 more.
After looking up the specs and seeing similar features I had limited expectations.My current network ran well, had a few dropouts here and there, but had pretty good speed from our charter cable internet connected to our wi-fi router.
Setup - I read the instructions and they are really simple and easy to follow. I pretty much plugged it in and connected all my physical cables to it. It took a little longer to boot than I was expecting, but not sure that matters for a router as it really never gets turned off. The network cables and USB ports are great and since most stuff we run is wireless now, I still have an open port
Really cool - something I found cool was that if you have an android device there is a QR code to scan to setup automatically. makes it much easier
Wi-Fi setup - setting up wi-fi and passwords can be a pain, the sticker inside the box and QR code for android really make it easier, but for other devices having everyone reset their network and password can be a pain.
So, I got onto my hardwired computer and opened Chrome and went to http://myrouter - this is easy to do and it opens to a simple and easy interface. For people like me who aren't super technical this was great - easy to use and navigate. There is an advanced screen, which is also not that complicated, but not really necessary for most.
best thing - I changed the name of the router and password - I used my old router name and password and did not have to change any of our devices, everything we had connected immediately.
Noticed a difference - I was very surprised, but right from the start I noticed a difference in speed on all our devices. Part of the difference was how fast stuff loaded, but more than that, it was how fast it communicated and responded. Hope that makes sense.
it was like the difference between calling someone and having them pickup on the first ring vs. the sixth - you still had the conversation and got the info, but it just started a lot quicker. I have also noticed less dropouts on my mobile devices.
Netflix - since I switched to this router I have noticed better streaming from netflix - i didn't have any buffering issues with my old one or problems keeping up with a movie, but sometimes it would have communications issues - to keep the same metaphor, like it was getting a busy signal or being hung up on. I don't know if that was netflix or me, but so far not a problem.
Xbox - haven't done much other than stream movies and it has been perfect.
I was originally thinking I might try this and just go back to my old router since the specs were the same, but there is no way I am going back.This is really much better in a very noticeable way.
I would definitely recommend this router, it is not magic, but definitely noticeable - the real question is it worth the extra cash to you. My old one worked and I probably would not have upgraded, until I tried this one.
