    "Spot on...5 Star....Great reception and I love the parental controls...The hubs are not like your traditional router, they are not big, bulky with a plethora of flashing lights, they are small white units with a soft white glow to let you know its working, that soft white will change to orange if no connection is found from your modem."

It is also open source ready and for those of you who get a dreaded port issue playing an online PS4 game and need to go into settings to allow ports this router will be a Godsent as it is very easy to manipulate networking functions."

    "nice ....Not bad...It could use some better parental controls....For connectivity on the router itself, it marks off the important checkboxes - USB 3 connection for a hard drive or flash drive, USB 2 for a printer or another flash or hard drive that doesn't need to transfer data as fast, a gigabit ethernet connection to whatever your internet connection is brought into your home with, and a 4 port gigabit ethernet switch."

    "Cool Core...PROS: ....Parental control is another nice feature....I had resorted to a 4-node mesh network (one of the most popular) before this, and that offered decent coverage, but mesh networks still dont work well with things like video doorbells, certain wireless remotes and apps that depend on not being on a heavily segmented network - There's just too much going on behind the scenes in a mesh."
