I initially bought this router from Asda as my Speedtouch 585 had been destroyed in a thunderstorm the day before. I always thought the 585 was good but this Edimax far exceeded expectations, so much so I bought another as a spare from Amazon for much less! My rural phone line is fairly long, around 2.7 km. The 585 would normally sync at between 5 or 6 meg and would often lose and re-sync overnight. This router always syncs in excess of 7.3 meg, maintains that connection speed overnight and has raised my IP Profile to 6 meg. On the odd occasions I have had to switch it off and back on again, my profile even rose to 6.5, unheard of with the 585! The wi-fi range is better too, covering the whole house and most of the garden from its location in a downstairs cupboard. Both units were supplied with the latest firmware.

I know this router has had some bad press but over the years I have used Belkin, Netgear, Linksys and Thomson Speedtouch but this one beats them all!!!

Update: Firmware has now been upgraded to v 1.0.7 [...] This has corrected an error in the downstream attenuation reading and also seems to have improved stability even more!

Further Update: June 29, 2012. Down Up
SNR Margin (dB): 13.0 22.0
Attenuation (dB): 43.0 28.0
Output Power (dBm): 20.0 12.0
Attainable Rate (Kbps): 9548 1028
Rate (Kbps): 7616 448

Maintains these figures all the time now, T-Storms aside!!

I had to upgrade my old Netgear router when the telephone exchange upgraded to ADSL+2 with which the Netgear could not cope. This Edimax one does and seems to do so very well. I thought at first that it had some foibles and I was going to change it but decided in the end to keep it. I found that the PCI Adapter card in the computer was causing some of the (minor) problems and when I changed that to a TP-Link card then this Edimax came to life. So much so that I tried an Edimax PCI adapter card which proved to be not as good as the TP-Link one in terms of signal strength in particular. If I were to give any negative point to this Edimax router, I would say that for some reason it takes quite a long time to boot up if it is switched off, so now I leave it on 24/7. Also the software is a bit hard-going and confusing, so probably best left alone. I did try to update the firmware but even though it reported as having done so successfully, it still shows the old version number.

I chose this on price alone, thinking it was worth a go despite the mixed reviews. All the other routers I've had in the past have only lasted a year or two anyway so I don't see the point in paying more than 20 quid. I have to say however I am pleased with the router. It works well, the signal strength seems fine (works throughout the house) and it's a reasonably small and discreet unit. The set up was a bit fiddly - when setting it up you need to log in with the factory-set password of 1234. However when entering this the set up page told me this was the wrong password. I tried again a couple more times and then it worked. For this I've knocked off a star - otherwise I'd be happy to give it 5 stars. Apart from this the setup was as easy as these things ever are.

I bought this as a it was a cheap 802.11n wireless router. At first it worked OK although the signal strength seemed a bit poor. Then it started dropping connection fairly often and had to be reset. This was a bit of a pain, but I could live with it. However this router has the capability of using more than one SSID, so you can use one wireless connection and have other guest ones. For instance if you run a cafe you can have your own secure connection for the business, and have an open connection so you can provide free wifi for your customers. As I didn't need more than one connection I left the extra ones disabled. Then I found that after resetting the router the extra connections, although still showing as disabled in the router setup page, were active, and were unsecured. So I had to go in to the router setup and 'enable' them so I could disable them again. Finally, the connection dropped and when I went to disable the extra connections I couldn't access the setup page. I hadn't changed the user name and password from the default. Tried restoring the router to the default settings using the reset button on the back of the router. It must have worked because I lost my internet connection, but it still wouldn't accept the default user name and password, so I still couldn't access the router setup. A previous reviewer has said he had to change the date settings on his laptop to be able to access the router setup on a wireless connection, but I was using a wired connection from my desktop computer. The firmware in this router certainly seems to be incredibly flaky. So, unless you want to provide your neighbours with free wifi without realising, as well as suffering dropping connections and being unable to access the setup, avoid this router.

This is the worst router in the world. After trouble setting up, the wireless range is dreadful. About 15m from ps3 connection is 17%, when with a old netgear b/g router its 80%. How can it be so bad. hp 6735s laptop about 4m away gets 3 of 4 bars. 4M WTF. Bought new router a day after, that's how bad it is!
