Purchased this router thinking it would be an upgrade from my old wireless N router; it was not. Range is poor, whether on 2.4 or 5ghz connection.

        I thought I was upgrading my 3 yr old dual band belkin router. Boy was I wrong. This thing is the king of slow!

I've adjusted all the router settings I could with no diffe...  see moreof edward's review
