I bought the router last weekend becouse my previous gigait router did not do what it promised, mainly to deliver 1 GBit up and down over a 100% wired connection. This one comes troug hthe tests with 950 Mbit wired connection as the no3 out of 75 routers. So realy good tool to have. The only disadva...see moreof the reviewer's review

No guest network encryption

LinckG 10 months ago
This router/AP works well for home use, but it offers no encryption on the guest network. No way I'm going to allow an un-encrypted SSID in my house. No way I'd do that to my guests. Besides that, I wanted to use it for my kids devices to keep them off of the main network. Too bad. I liked it other ...see moreof the reviewer's review
