    I cannot in good faith purchase a router that does not refund you the cost + $15.

    only 10/100

    Downloaded the manual to see if I could hook up my Blu-ray player to the WD and have it join the existing wireless network. On page 68 it mentions Extender Mode. I'd appreciate some feedback of this would do what I want:

    ie use this WD router to join an existing wireless network wirelessly, allowing devices to connect to my LAN via Ethernet to the router.

      An access point in Extender Mode usually wireless (and wired) clients to access the network over 802.11 to another access point. How well that works may depend on the router. With a dual band router, the idea would be to use 1 band for router-to-router (extended) traffic, and the other band for clients.

    the price online is still $69 isn't it?

    •  

      The sale doesn't start until the 17th. But you can pre-order it in store for the $19 price I believe.

  •  

    would this unit be good enough for my ready-to-buy 'powerline adaptor'(TP-LINK TL-PA411)?
    Thank in advance!

  •  

    Not sure how good the router is but for $19 it's a bargain dual band Access Point. I might get this just to give me good WiFi coverage down stairs.

    Doesn't look like its DD-WRT compatible.

    deal breaker for me. i wont buy a router unless its aftermarket firmware supported.

  •

  •

    Picked this up today just to add a 5Ghz network, as my current Fritz 7270 can't do 2.4/5Ghz at the same time unlike the 7390.

    Set it up on the opposite side of the house (as a wireless AP) where my desktop is so I could move my laptop, Roku and iPad off the 2.4Ghz and have only had a chance to set it up on my iPad. Signal on the 5Ghz seems really good so far, no drop outs or anything. Simple set up as well.

    Will see how it goes overall I guess, but so far happy with it, especially for only $19!
