Excellent Router

Excellent router, excellent WiFi signal quality, great transfer rate The Software is a show giving you freedom and excellent configuration options, secure access is a great option with many different configuration options. Simply the best router I've ever used, my NAS has come to life to stream my 4K content to my home TVs.


    It works

    Set up was not as easy as I hoped it would be. Quick install guide brochure was the only instruction and was of the IKEA type with pictures only. The set up screen did not come up automatically and had to enter the web address. That is not easy to figure out for someone with less computer experience. I had to separate the bands to get some smart devices to connect. Otherwise, it has worked fine.
