Pros: The router has lots of features, is easy to setup, and has a good web interface including the Genie app
Cons: The 5G signal is not particularly strong nor very fast, not many client devices can make use of the high speed features
This is a feature rich router with lots of customization. It supports both normal and 5G wireless simultaneous. However, I only have a single device that can make use of 5G and it doesn't seem to improve performance very much. I like having a power shutoff switch and USB. You can connect a USB drive to the router for instant network storage.<br />The web interface is very easy to use. Setup is not very difficult. You can also setup devices to keep a particular address assigned via DHCP. This is handy if you have an old network printer or other device.<br />I like the added security and parental controls as well as the Genie desktop application. It gives you a great view of what is on your network with options to allow/disallow or customize the experience of each device on your network.<br />This router seems to be a bit ahead of its time with some of the options. If it last longer than my prior linksys and Belkin routers, then it should turn out to be a good device to grow into.
