Thread Details

Hey guys, just got back from my local Wal Mart and snagged what appeared to be the last one of these. Brickseek shows it OOS in my area now, but at $25.00. Didn't think to take a picture of it in the store, so I took a picture of my receipt (which, admittedly, only lists it as "ROUTER".

Brickseek ID: 37701348
http://brickseek.com/walmart-inventory-checker?

Did a quick search and only saw this router posted back in March where it appeared for $50.00 at Microcenter.

Reviews are mixed, and I really only needed a small hub for my applications, but I couldn't pass it up. Good luck finding it in your area!

1 or less, not worth a special trip but thanks anyway. Walmart inventory is always f'd up, even if it's says 3, you show up and nobody knows where it is.

Well, only the 2.4ghz has issues and that is well documented. I have merlin on mine with the 2.4ghz disabled and have no issues whatsoever. I have a WNDR4500V2 hooked up to this as an access point with the 5ghz disabled as well.

There was a post for Walmart clearance on these for $55 on 5/1 and I bought one.

Looks like they are all gone in my area, but only one store even had it reduced that far. Half of them were reduced to $55, and several still have it listed at $109.

As far as wireless goes, I have not seen it drop signal with current Asus firmware or Merlin. However, if you are living in an area with congested 2.4ghz, you might need to spend some time tweaking the settings and finding the best channel.

What's the deal with multiple items under a singular item number, on your list, there?
