Pros: 7 gigabit ports
2 USB ports
Cons: Unreliable networking
Summary: I purchased this router a couple of months ago, I really wanted to fall head over heels with this router. And I had, until it didn't.
The router would drop all connections randomly. SSIDs disappeared on both bands and hardwired components lost IPs. Thinking I may have a bad unit I returned to place of purchase and walked out another. Two days later BAM same thing. WD's tech support was completely useless asking me to factory reset router and download all new firmware and whatnot. All of which had been done numerous times in my attempts at trouble shooting.
The router is wonderful when it is working. Dropping your connections on average once a week and having to reset the router was just not a favorable option for me. I was unable to find any other mention of this problem on any threads and all reviews through CNET and PCMag type sites have no mention of this issue.
Unfortunately I have ended up with a different brand, that I have always been loyal to, and actually have better performance in all aspects (Wireless range, throughput, USB attached storage transfer rates).
I will definitely miss the 7 gig ports and 2 USB ports as well.
