"1st died in 30 mins, 2nd drops signal every few mins"0.5 starson by sschrupp
Pros: Inexpensive, nice looking
Cons: Poor quality, doesn't work properly
Summary: I've used a lot of technology over the years and this is the first item that I've felt the need to give below 3 or 4 stars. The first router I brought home from Walmart completely froze after 30 minutes. Spoke with their tech support and he couldn't get it to reset to factory, told me it was defective.
The second one I brought home I was sure would be good because I've read good reviews about this. It set up just fine, signal was strong, had no issues. Three minutes later it dumped my wired connection out of Ventrilo and a game I was in then reconnected after 30 seconds or so.
I figured it was just a fluke, until 4 or 5 minutes later it happened again. And again. And again. I tried various settings, factory reset, 30/30/30 reset, etc etc. Nothing kept it from dropping my connection. How disappointing!
I really wanted to like this thing. I mean for the price it seems too good to be true. I guess it is.
I'm tempted to give it a 3rd try since there have been good reviews from people, but I've also seen reviews with similar problems to me. So is it just shoddy craftmanship? Do they just have poor manufacturing process and have many faulty devices rolling out?
