Same chipset as TP-Link WDR4300, so OpenWrt and DD-WRT are theoretically possible. No support on OpenWrt right now. Not sure about DD-WRT.

Good deal on a dual-band N750 gigabit router.

simultaneously 2.4 and 5 GHz band for $50 not too easy to find that from BM store. Some reviews on BestBuy appear to be from those that had trouble setting up or claiming to not work with TimeWarner. Not sure how that could be possible, perhaps they just didn't know how to setup just using a browser?

FYI - Brother HL-2040 printer is not supported by WD Print Share if you plan on turning that great cheap laser to a networked model. WD claims this is due to pulling too much power from usb?

I prefer just using Asus routers and printer models that are already network...and a NAS. BUT this router does allow windows users to share existing usb printers onto the network. Nice way to hide printer.

It seems most printers printer AND scan over network with this router, but NO OSX/Mac were tested but I wonder if that is just due to no install software. I bet if setup with windows pc, then WD N750 would share on network to mac fine.

I have the model lower than this one, the n600 and it works great. I might bite on this since mine doesn't have the gig ports, thanks OP.

Just got this set up on my MacBook Pro using the browser setup, was the easiest router to setup ever, A+ so far! Way faster and better range than the Netgear N300 router it replaced.

Good to know. I always use a browser to setup, nice and fast.

If you have a usb printer to setup on this router please share your results.

Will do, I'm lucky I got it hooked up at all today. I'll hook it up after work tomorrow and report back for you.

I wouldn't hold your breath. Buy one with support if that's what you're looking for.

Confusing that Belkin and WD both have a N750 router.
