    I bought this so I could bridge my NVG510 to it and use the Monoprice one as my real router. I am having an extremely difficult time doing that. I had it figured out once but then I tried using the other ports on it, but nothing was working. So I don't know if it is me or the machine.

    PROS: Nice design, bright green lights

    CONS: Having a difficult time bridging my NVG510 to it.

    Very good router

    PROS: Very good unit, simple to install for a beginner, reaches all my house for various units.

    Simple, effective
    Just plug it in, connect, and run the wizard. Very simple configuration and a very fast router.

    PROS: Easy to configure

    First, the price is unbeatable I could have acquired 3 of these for the price that my father paid for his Nighthawk AC router. I didn't do that, but I did buy two to replace my two existing, cheap-o wireless-N routers.

    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?

    Another great Monoprice value, Would buy again
    Great feature filled router for an excellent price. Under $35 delivered. Getting great coverage. Simultaneous dual band is great to have. My nexus 5x is getting 866mbps connection speed, almost the advertised max. I have old walls with heavy cement plaster. Getting great penetration. Upgraded the firmware to the latest version linked in another review. Thanks for that, worked great. We have tried hard to be patient with our next router purchase and I am glad we got this one. We tend to pay about $35 for each router and they have lasted us 7-15 years each. $200 features for $35.

    PROS: Price
    Signal Strength

    CONS: Firmware out of date, out of the box

    worked right out of the box with easy set-up. It seems like it's faster than my old linksys router. It's only been a week, but so far no problems at all.

    PROS: easy set up, dual bands, multiple SSIDs

    CONS: none

    New Firmware Available
    My Avast anti-virus app reported the original firmware was making making my network insecure. Avast was identifying this as a Netis brand.

    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.

    Works Great. No Problems.
    Plugged this into an output of my DSL modem/router and figured it would take forever to get running, but it started up right away and has been working perfectly for several months. I wanted a wireless base in another part of the house out of range of the DSL router so I got this. Setup was quick and easy. The only problem was changing the name of the router, which it would not do for some reason. I'm not a IT person, but I know a little about the technology. Be sure to update the router's firmware as others have mentioned. This was easy to do, so don't fear. For me, I had to boot the router after each configuration change. It will only change one thing (password, security setting, etc.) at a time. Maybe your luck will be better. Not a problem, it just takes a little longer. Most configuration settings you'd ever want to review or change are in the unit's built-in web page, Changing them from a laptop is easy.

    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.

    Firmware update
    Let me start off with saying, I love Monoprice. I received this router around 1 Jan, set it up and forgot about it for a couple of months. Then the power went off and I had to reset the router. No big deal, but I couldn't find the paper manual. Tech support was a little slow and a little helpful but I still couldn't log onto the router to change the settings. It is Aug now and I sat down to get this router working, a little digging and I found a manual and updated the frimware to V2.1.35445.

    PROS: Cost, speed

    CONS: No pdf manual, no updates on the Monoprice website

    AC1200 11538
    I can recommend this to someone who is looking for solid speed and perhaps up to 4 devices. Keep in mind that file hosting and and activities that requires port forwarding are not going to work. VPN works great out of the box. My internet speed is 25 -50mbps that is good for 30 feet or so.

    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.
