Perfect for ExpressVPN custom firmware.

26 November 2018
I use Gbit Fibre and ExpressVPN in conjunction with this router and it happily runs at a consistent 750–950Mbps when bypassing the VPN which the custom firmware has a built in option for. I have a 2nd router and full up 8 port Gbit switch as well as a Sam Knows White Box all connected to the LAN and 9–15 wireless devices all working at the same time. This router is the hardest working router I've owned to date and still has room/useable bandwith available if I wanted to connect anything else or have guests using it.
This is the 2nd one of these of ha brought, I'm setting this one up at mum's.

Fiber boost

21 February 2019
I was recommended this product when I had fibre installed into my house. I was very concerned about the lack of coverage in the house from the provided equipment. This equipment has delivered more that I was expecting and I now have four bars on all equipment all through the house. As well as the greater range, data up and down loads are more than high enough for all users. even four computers running a WOW night as a LAN party was easily coped with while others still used phones and tablets. The level of technology also means that the fibre connected to the house is future proofed as there is plenty of spare capacity in the unit yet to be...

Great Router. I use it primarily as a secondary wireless access point and have used it's ability to run opensource OpenWRT. It is fast, reliable, and easy to configure. WiFi performance works well over large distances due to the dual band capability.

falsely impressed

18 October 2018
This router seemed like it was going to be just what I was after, plugged it in, set it up, it was easy to do, it seemed fast and it had a great GUI, then BOOM! it shut down and sat tying to restart. I had to shut it down, power off and then start it again. This would happen every 30 or so minutes, mainly once under some load. I had been informed, likely cause was crap solder connections heating up and failing. Luckily PB Tech took it back and replaced it with an ASUS, which has been rock solid ever since.
