    "I maintain a solid 150+ mbps connection anywhere in the home on a 5ghz connection....So far 3 days into it, i'm impressed, 5g is stronger than on the previous Linksys Router, I have yet to drop a connection, AND the UI is a lot better than the WRT32X or the wireless N router ( which looks like it has come out of the 80's ) This router is set up in my laundry room and has several walls for the 5ghz signal to pass through but so far it's doing the job and doing it pretty well"

    "Works well with 5ghz band slows on 2.4gHz...I love that it takes up very little space, but due to not having external antennas, it goes out a lot if being used for wifi access for smartphones, but is fine with being used for laptops and computers if you don't mind a few delays and even though it's a dual- band wireless-n router with built in cable modem, it's difficult to get the secondary band to function and wouldn't recommend it for large homes but it's rather more suitable for apts"
