A:AnswerI have 2 laptops, 2 IPads 3 IPhones a Blueray player and a smart TV all on at the same time with excellent signal strength and no drop outs and have not had to reboot. Hope this helps, you wont be dissapointed by this router!
A:AnswerYes, this route has a very nice firewall that I use. The advantage of using the firewall on this router is that you aren't using MS Windows horrible firewall. Plus you have many features to use like limiting time and very nice browsing protection that actually works. Remove access to whatever sites you want. naughty sites, gambling, fanatical sites, religious cults, you name it. The only disadvantage using it would be if you had an actual dedicated hardware firewall, which is a bit overkill for home use in my opinion. Plus they are much more expensive than this router.
WPA is out dated and easy to hack. WPA2 is much better and allows you to use password phrases instead of crazy long hard to remember hex strings. You should use WPA2 Personal. Just about any wireless device within the last 8 years will support it. earlier than that there is no guarantee.
Hope I helped answer your questions. :D Have a good day!
A:AnswerThat's so funny you say that because I did the same upgrade.. I have to say I've had my nighthawk plugged in for 3 months in below zero degrees and I've had no need to reboot it. Those poor expensive Apple Airport Extremes are showing they're age.
A:Answerwith this all you need is your internet connection, its pretty much plug and go, already set to block people from gaining unwanted access. If you need more security it is simple as opening up a web page and changing the settings.
