Great out-of-the-box!

by Fran star star star star star

I just got this one in order to extend (or divide?) the network at home and I have it handling the ground floor while attached to the main router upstairs. It was, quite literally, plug and play for me. I did not need to change any network configurations for it to connect to the Internet using the main router and plays nice with the other routers in my network with no additional configuration. Quite happy with the product, specially for the price. It's not the fastest on paper, but I'm fine with 1Gbps cabled network and the WiFi on 5G does work pretty well, which was what my original reason to purchase it was: downstairs the WiFi wasn't working that well. TL;DR: Bought it to add more WiFi capabilities at home and worked with little to no config for that end (other than changing defaults, obviously). Great price and great router (so far). Regards.
