Some crazy bad reviews. At that price though gonna roll the dice, most issues seem to be with updating it and then it bricking. Get past that and hopefully all is good, else I'll return it.

I have an AC1750 which doesn't have the best ratings either. Got it on a Walmart clearance a couple of years ago for dirt cheap. Figured the price earned it a try same as you.

I haven't actually had any problems. It's got pretty surprising coverage too. Here's wishing you the same luck.

From the top Amazon review:
Quote :
There are two things customers must do to make sure this product functions at its best.

1) In the settings menu, select automatic firmware update.
2) In the settings menu, select the "Self-Healing" option. Select every day of the week for it to reboot and "self-heal" itself and ideally do so at around 4:30 in the morning. The reason is that from 2-4am is when most cable companies update their servers and their service goes out temporarily. You want the router to reboot and refresh after this temporary outage to avoid hiccups.
Not a good sign.

...okay, when you put it that way. lol

Seriously I periodica11y reb00t* any of my tech that's always on. Belkin calls it self healing. But its just the normal start up tests & adjustments that keep these things healthier.

Also I have some of the world's worst internet service. Bad infrastructure in the neighborhood. When I'm going thru a rough patch self healing can actually get the problem to clear sometimes. At least temporarily.

* sorry but it was getting censored
