AC750 Wireless Dual Band Router
Break out of the crowded 2.4GHz wireless band using this AC750 Wireless Dual band Router from Monoprice!
This router relieves the crowding on the 2.4GHz band by adding a second channel at 5 GHz. Your existing 2.4GHz Wi-Fi® equipment can still connect at the 2.4GHz band, while your newer Wi-Fi equipment will be able to connect on the 5 GHz band.
It includes four 10/100Mbps Ethernet ports for wired networking connections and three 5dBi antennas for superior wireless reception. It can achieve speeds up to 300Mbps on the 2.4GHz band and up to 450Mbps on the 5GHz band.
It supports a number of advanced features, including support for multiple SSIDs, bandwidth control, and VPN pass-through. An Ethernet cable is included.

I have gone back to my ancient linksys routers despite their age because at least they are reliable. AC doesn't do you any good if you have to keep reconnecting every time you want to use it.
CONS: Terrible performance - needs constant attention to keep it working.
PROS: Inexpensive, easy setup, fairly advanced configuration options (power output, multiple SSIDs, auto/manual WAN port speed/duplex)
CONS: The interface is a bit glitchy.
My biggest issue with this router is 5 GHz support. No matter what i do, 5 GHz is not stable. It starts working great and continues to work great for days, but then it would just lock up. The radio seems to be up, but no packets are passed. It sure looks like a software problem, but, i have not seen any update. Switching off 5 GHz radio and going back to 2.4 GHz makes it solid again.
So, i will give it a solid 5 out of 10 solely based on 5GHz problems.
PROS: - Inexpensive
- Feature rich
- Easy setup
- 5GHz support
- Client mode (claimed)
CONS: - 5 GHz is unstable
Thank you for your review and truly sorry to hear about the issues with 5 GHz support on PID 11442. A couple things you can do is set the router to 20 MHz rather than 40MHz and setting to a different WiFi channel. You can also try pointing the antenna more towards the direction in which your devices are if you have not done so already. I apologize again for the difficulties. Please let me know if anything changes. Hope this helps!
I've played with settings attempting to make things more stable to no avail. I'll be retiring this thing early.
PROS: Well, it was inexpensive for an AC router.
CONS: Cannot handle sustained throughput, constantly drops it's clients when being used regularly but not heavily. A much older non Monoprice AP never had these issues.
The firmware is buggy, the DHCP server keeps turning itself on whenever a wireless change is made.

PROS: Easy to set up
PROS: 5Ghz for a relatively inexpensive price, WPS, it works decently (only 2 months so far)
CONS: Small, light weight, very basic interface out of the box
PROS: Fairly easy set-up and although I can't get the 5 gig stream yet, I don't think it's an issue with the unit.
CONS: Can't get the 5 gig stream but I have some troubleshooting to do before I write off the unit.
PROS: This wireless router is a great purchase. Its a great price, excellent dual-band performance, and shipped quick.Set-up was a breeze.
PROS: I have configured as a wireless access point and it has been completely stable for the first two weeks. Reasonably good range.
CONS: User interface is a little complicated, but that seems to be usual with routers these days
