This app has the potential to be great. I was only able to access my router through this app when I first downloaded it. I was so excited. How ever every time I attempted to access the app after that, I get this message: "logon timed out, please try again. If this issue persists, try rebooting your device. I've done every hack mentioned. I removed the special character out of my password. I've deleted app and redownloaded it. I can access router through browser. Its the app for sure.

This review is strictly for the app itself, not the hardware. The router itself is a beast, works flawlessly. The app, well, leaves A LOT to be desired. 500 character limit is not nearly enough to go into detail. Biggest thing for me, any real router customization has to be done through web interface. The app is user friendly & easy to navigate, but any real admin customization is lost.

Almost useless. The app is missing key features needed to properly set up the device. It's too oversimplified, even idtiot-proof, and that makes no sense for someone who just bought such a complicated device. This product isn't for a novice, you need to know what you're doing when you set it up and the app does not allow any QoS, WMM or DNS configuration, that's only available through IP logon. Without configuring these settings the user experiences endless connection issues.
