Keep Looking, Don't Waste Your Money
on August 29, 2012
I purchased the WZR-D1800H when it first came out and it has been a total dissapointment. If all your wireless equipment are in the same room this router will work for you. My 5 year old D link router has 4x the distance of this unit. I have a 2 story house and this router is in the upstairs corner bedroom. My computer is in the next room and can only get 50% or less on the 5ghz band and 60% signal strength on the 2.4 band. I have 5 HDTV's throughout my house that have built in wireless. The 5ghz band will not reach any of them and the 2.4 barely reaches down stairs with a very weak signal. It will barely stream HD content stops and starts alot. I have installed their latest beta firmware(1.88) hoping for some improvement. I get maybe 15% better signal but still have constant varing signal strength. On my destop computer in the next room it still switches back and forth constantly from 2.4 to 5ghz because of weak signals. If no improvement with firmware by the end of the year this unit is going on Ebay!
