Summary: In case anyone is wondering it ok to use this with your BT open reach FTTC modem. I am with plusnet and the router they use is terrible. Got this to replace it and so far so good, it seems a little hot though worried about over heating but ill be back if that happens to change this review.
A solid Dual-Band router but CAUTION is needed after set-up!

Summary: As we head towards the mid-point of the year 2014, pretty much all of our new tech is 'connected' in some way, if you wish to use it to its full potential. All of these wireless devices demanding access to the Internet can bring many an older Wi-Fi router to its knees and this is the position I found myself in. I found that my old Buffalo Airstation router, whilst having served me faithfully for many a year could just no longer cope with the demands being made of it.
It's looks are spoiled by exposing the wires, otherwise great.

Summary: This is ONLY a router, you will need an existing modem to access the internet. Some reviews mention that this isn't mentioned in the description. To be fair, if an item doesn't mention that it IS a combined modem router I wouldn't assume that it was. It has very sleek looks but this is a little spoiled because all the cables plug into the right hand side, as you look at it. This spoils the overall look of an otherwise sleek unit a little. That's about all for the bad.
Summary: OK, slightly superseded by the RT-N66U (which I also have - I used this one as a secondary access point to get total coverage in the house), but still a very competent high speed and capable router and wireless access point. Shame it died after just 2 or so years and I couldn't afford to buy another one of these. Using the less capable and noticeably slower but very well priced RT-N12E as my secondary access point.
Summary: after reading tons of reviews about this i decided to buy it. to my surprise it was constantly disconnecting the 2.5GHz band and the worst was the fact that the video streaming was 2-5fps on 5GHz. so i returned and bought the asus rt-n66u which worked like a charm.
Summary: After having and getting sick of BT Homehubs (I have BT infinity ) I upgraded to this. Wish I had done it sooner. The Homehub regularly dropped connections and I got a replacement. That also dropped connections until I downgraded the security key setting. Wireless was slow though, with my IPad I got around 6mbps sitting fairly close. This is dual band. The standard 2.4ghz and 5ghz.
Summary: Wow! This was the 3rd wifi router I've brought in the past year. I had even considered splashing serious cash on the latest technology from Apple - but the reviews for this were excellent. This is seriously fast - and it looks pretty smart too. I'm running an Apple TV - streaming iPlayer from my iPad to the router and then to the Apple TV, while using two other ipads and a laptop - all over WIFI and it's fast as lightning.
Summary: It reaches parts my old router didn't, the router supplied by my internet provider was not powerful enough to reach all parts of my modest semi-detached home, breeze block walls were the main problem, I bought this on recommendation from my son who has one and the fact it also had very good reviews on the Amazon site.
Summary: Bought this Sunday 18/08/13, with a delivery date of Fri.23/08/13, received router Wed.21/08/13, excellent service from Amazon. Router is excellent easy set up to my exisiting Fibre connection, replaced poor isp router Plusnet technicolour router, wireless strength and speed over 2.4 ghz, greatly increased, not tried 5 ghz as of yet, needed to update to latest firmware, this again was so easy, others have mebtioned need to set own ssid, and security for both 2.4 and 5...
Summary: I have been using a Virgin Media 'Superhub' and when i say super hub it is just because Virgin media called it that, and it is anything but. I had been having problems with laptops/tablets loosing connection and then re-connecting, this was quite annoying, after looking at the superhub there seemed to be no problems, i was also getting quite slow connection to the internet even though i should have 30Mb/s.
