    "Fast ....I win....I can surely say the wireless is massively stronger and giving me what I am paying for....This thing is great, better range than Comcast's router and it has consistent WiFi, only issue I have is I can't figure out how to connect my PS4 to it via LAN, so its running on WiFi but I really wish I could use it with the LAN because it would be able to download much quicker but that is my only complaint."

    "I love...Love it...So far works great and get good reception....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."
