Pros Could have been wonderful.
Cons Failed to do what it was supposed to do.
Summary Didn't work as a net extender. Thought setup went well, but couldn't get Amped unit to connect to the main router. Tech support's solution was that our net password had an odd charecter, so we let them talk us into changing the password. That didn't help, so we had to return it. Disappointing. Meanwhile we had to update passwords on 11 other devices unnecessarily.
Pros Great performance for multiple wireless devices using video and audio applications
Cons Have to reboot the router every time a change is made to any setting
SummaryI am a home user with a 40 megabit-per-second DSL connection. My network maintains around a dozen concurrently connected devices (wireless printer, Apple Airport Express, several iOS devices, several Windows notebooks, a several Mac OS X clients and wired Verizon Network Extender). Prior to this I used a Netgear WNDR3700 which is a top-of-the-line router. Even so, with the Netgear I was experiencing sluggish connectivity when all of us were concurrently connected making Skype calls, watching streaming video content, and making phone calls. After reading a favorable review about the Amped Wireless R10000G with regards to how efficiently it handled concurrently connected devices, I bought one to give it a try. I am very pleased with the performance of this router. It delivers on the promise of improved connectivity for multiple users and the range is very good, too. My family no longer routinely complains about sluggish Internet performance.

Pros None that I can think of.
Cons "Elite" support (phone, online chat) is shockingly bad...suggested remedies are laughable, an insult to most peoples' intelligence. I wish I could say more to NOT recommend this company & its products!
Thanks for your submission!
