"As expected with stock firmware; waiting on Tomato!"5.0 starson by HenryOfTHeDown
Pros: It's going to have Tomato!
It already has DD-WRT, though I haven't tried it yet (too soon!)
It does everything you'd expect a modern AC router to do
And whatever else
Cons: No Tomato yet!
Summary: It's a router. It works. The stock firmware does not suck, and is slightly better than one might expect. But they already have DD-WRT working in it!
People complain about the 5Ghz performance, though, so I'm waiting.
The point is that the open source firmwares work in this AC router. So once AC is all settled and Netgear releases a new round of firmware, I betcha the DD-WRT and Tomato stuff gets cleaned up and I have me an AC Tomato.
What more could I want?
My range seems fine, but I am lucky that my router is in a pretty good spot to basically cover me from fence to curb.
Buying an ac router? Buy this one.
