PROS: Nice design, bright green lights
CONS: Having a difficult time bridging my NVG510 to it.
PROS: Very good unit, simple to install for a beginner, reaches all my house for various units.
PROS: Easy to configure
Second, since installing, I've noticed a huge difference is both stability, range and speed. I am very happy with that. I was tempted to see if I got a signal at the other end of my street, but I haven't done that yet.
Third, set up was very easy. The simplified interface is a bit too simple, but clicking the "Advanced" button in the upper right revealed a plethora of options that most expect.
The default setup (or installation instructions) doesn't really contemplate having two routers, which is fine so long as you know what you're doing. The two play very nicely together.
Finally, I have no idea whether these will hold up. I've only had them installed a very short while. I have my fingers crossed.
As of right now, I would very much recommend these.
PROS: This is an inexpensive, gigabit wireless AC router with both 2.4 and 5ghz that was incredibly easy to install. It supports multiple SSIDs and a host of other configuration options.
CONS: The base is a bit flimsy and it's white. Why white?
CONS: Firmware out of date, out of the box
PROS: easy set up, dual bands, multiple SSIDs
As others have observed, this is a Netis WF2780.
I flashed the newest firmware (netis(WF2780_US)-V2.1.35445) from here:
No issues after reflashing firmware. Although, if you're controlling access via MAC, remember to write down those addresses BEFORE updating, because they will get wiped out, of course.
Ran Avast and the security issue is now resolved.
PROS: - Has been running flawlessly since day one.
CONS: - None.
PROS: Worked right away after setup and a couple configuration changes for my system.
CONS: You can use it without changing anything in the configuration, but if you do changes thing, it takes time for boots.
PROS: Cost, speed
CONS: No pdf manual, no updates on the Monoprice website
PROS: Steady and strong connection within 35 feet.
CONS: Coverage dramatically drops, almost disappears in further than 35 feet.
No port forwarding.
Doesn't support older N repeaters.
