Mine died after six months, reboot loop. After waiting 4 days for a post to their support site to be okayed by the moderator (supposed to happen within 2 hours) I emailed, and three days later returned it to Costco.

I posted a one star review to amazon and within hours received a response there and an email from their support.

Upon looking around, I found that a lot of first gen 5300/5400 routers that have largely the same innards have the same boot loop issue. I couldn't find anything specific about what the problem was other than "hardware" with the entire unit being replaced.

Also note that this may be the V1 hardware, and they released the V2 hardware VERY soon after the V1, so I imagine it was to fix the hardware issue. Mine was a V1. Some folks tested the V1 vs V2 in the small netbuilder forums and found the V2 to not be as good on range and throughput.

While it lasted it was a decent router. Good range and their single SSID across all three bands actually worked well, while the Netgear X8 didn't. X8 also has the boot loop issue.

The TP-Link 3200 spaceship was on sale yesterday. I'm sad I missed the sale on the AC1750 routers, hope the AC1900 routers go on sale soon. I really don't want this overkill stuff I'm not going to use.
