Overall and FV

Although the N300 was easy to setup, we did run into a couple issues that could cause you to question this as a purchase. Not being able to setup WPS was a bummer and I think had we been able to set this up we may not have had the speed issues that we ended up having. Those speed issues ended up being a major issue considering my high speed connection. Limiting my 50 down 50 up Time Warner wideband connection down to 16 down and 5 up left me with a connection that wasn’t much better than Time Warner Turbo. For someone with a slightly slower connection this would most likely never be an issue unless they were looking at file transfers over the wireless. Even in my case I was still able to perform the tasks needed out back in my yard while enjoying the weather, once I was done I turned the N300 off using the switch on the bottom and my connection was back to normal. Hopefully EDIMAX is able to resolve this issue with a firmware update; otherwise it’s a great device. Its small size keeps it out of the way and easy setup makes it useable for everyone. As I mentioned before, the inclusion of DHCP support means this can also double as a small travel router if needed as well. At Less than $40 bucks, it wouldn’t be a bad choice for both a travel router and a way to push your network out into a backyard workshop or around the pool.
