People are right: There's something really screwy about the stock firmware on this. The last update was in 2009. The calendar on the router ENDS IN 2012 (Mayan Apocalypse conspiracy theorists, please chime in now!). It doesn't seem to be able to achieve anywhere near the advertised 300Mbps speeds, even in nearly ideal conditions (clear line of sight, rural area with little interference).
I set-up the DIR-615 n300 wireless router and connected the DWA-130 n300 wireless adapter to a Windows XP desktop about 15 feet away. It can achieve 150Mbps. But on a new Windows 8 laptop, even 5 feet away, the connection speed is capped at 65Mbps. I called support and spent an hour on the phone. We played with every possible setting. 65Mbps. Never falls below that, and signal strength is strong. But it cannot exceed it. It seems to be some sort of compatibility issue with newer wireless cards and/or Windows 8.
Would DD-WRT resolve this? Anyone else have a similar experience or a better solution? I'm tempted just to return the thing. It should work, out of the box.

|davidt1||My Linksys E1000 has poor range and drops like crazy if my laptop is about 40ft away. Is this a good replacement for the the E1000? Or can someone recommend something better than the E1000? Thanks.|

|freejus||This thing has more drops than a skrillex song. Probably have to send it back.|

|mega||How can you tell this is really a N300 router? It doesn't say it anywhere explicitly on the box? In fact the back of the box says this router uses draft N technology. Isn't that like 150Mbps? Would appreciate some clarification; to me seems a case of false advertising by Newegg.|

|skahide||So I bought this deal, and then found out that my wife has a Linksys E2500 from before we got married. Which is better? I am just trying to replace the ZyXEL 660 that i have now because we cannot use more than 2 or 3 devices at one time.|

|J_DOC||Question: Flashed dd-wrt firmware rev: 21061. Using stock settings for the most part, However the power and web-link led's are the only ones that light during operation. Operation is not affected, is this a known issue that I missed?|
