"All Pro features included on new version"5.0 starson by wperdomos
Pros: The best Firmware from factory i've seen before
Easy Configuration (now with PC software setup)
Big Bang for the money
Can Work in WDS mode
Cons: A bit Bulkier
Not an unified status and monitoring page and no graphs of usage
No USB port
Summary: Im a PC technician and initially buy this router with much suspicion, but for the cost i decided give it a chance.
Now I'm very surprised of the functions than this one have.
This router has now (with the new firmware version) all the previously missing features, i am a previous dd-wrt user and this router come packed with almost all premium features of it. Ive Purchased the v4 and software include: Bandwidth Control Settings (pc web speed control with a friendly interface. im a formely online game player and now im protected from my kids band wasting pages), Parental controls (Schedule acces to internet), Power Gain Control (H,M or Low), Dynamic DNS, Static DHCP, Static Routing and WDS amog others.
This has longer effective range than my previously buffalo HPG54.
Now a CD with easy configuration software is included.
No VPN option included (Not needed for most users and can be done with pc software)
WDS mode is a nice plus so it can be used to expand previouly WAN or add a second one as repeater.
Its a bit bulkier than other routers actually on the marked but its not a real problem.
No USB port is a really miss, so i have to change my external HD to a NAS
Has not really interference with my home 2.4 Phones
Ping from pc to router 1000 times and get very few packet loss, low latency fast response, From router to my pc on bedroom and 2 walls between them (making it good for games)
The cons are not really a problem for mostly users and for the money than i payed im very happy with this router.
A shame i not have any N card to try the transfer speed among pcs.
For the cost, functions than it has (cons are not real problem for me) make this router avove the average than i tested so i decided recomend it and give 5 stars.
