They're useless as a router unless you have a hardware power cycle/timer plug [amazon.com] that resets the power on these every 5 hours.

I thought someone had posted a firmware unlock/replacement for these that make them reliable. Not Tomato or DDWRT, but something else... I can't find the thread about it.


Otherwise it's been reported that it works great as a switch if you turn all the router functionality off.


This thing is as reliable at wireless routing as a cactus plant. Don't buy it expecting wireless internet capabilities.
It is a decent router for $4.

Got it a month ago, flashed OpenWRT and it has been non-stop (in a complex testing environment) since then.

My primary purpose was to have a separate network that I can tinker with and I also wanted to experiment with OpenWRT. This modem will support OpenWRT, DD-WRT, Tomato, and Gargoyle too I think.

The router's hardware is bare-minimum and has very less storage space and processing power for larger packages. The max throughput you can expect from WLAN is 4MB/s - 32Mb/s and the coverage are is less. Do not use it as a primary router. I did install a few packages but for every new package I had to remove/replace the older packages due to shortage of storage space.

My router is running OpenWRT . I first installed OpenWRT and later updated it to 15.05.01 using the OpenWRT interface. Directly upgrading to 15.05.01 will brick it.

I don't think you can find a new router that can run a stable 3rd party firmware under 10$.

It has the same hardware as Netgear WNR 612 V2.

Hope this helps.

What kind of switch has only 2 LAN ports? Like an "extension" switch to connect 2 CAT wires? lol

this is worthless - i got one last year and it won't setup because the web server it automatically refers to is no longer online. you get no support because the company was sold and new owner terminated support. i threw mine out - not even worth using as a hub/repeater since i don't know what it may be doing while online beyond my control.

It's openwrt that supports this router. Use at your own risk though, I bricked 2 of these trying to flash them to openwrt and I followed the instructions exactly every time. I've given up on these, even for free they are not worth it.

Agreed. I finally got it to work and then it just kept going online and then offline. Not worth the frustration, even for free.

You can always have it do a nightly reboot sometime early in the morning to clear things out.
