Software GUI & Performance
The initial setup of the device was super simple taking no more than five minutes, excluding the time taken to upgrade the firmware three times. First stepping up to 1.04, then 1.06 then finally 1.11. All in all, we estimate it took around twenty minutes.

Below is a short video showing the various features within the router. Its not the most complete in-router software weve used but it offers plenty for most users, its also incredibly snappy to use which is a big bonus.

We test both the WiFi and ethernet performance of the router below, at both 2.4GHz and 5.0GHz on the WiFi tests. Please check the Test Setup & Methodology page for details.

These tests are designed to be particularly hard work to transfer, comprising of many small files. The router still handles them very well.

These tests, conversely to the Bastian transfer, are to test the theoretical maximum that the network is capable of. We see some incredibly fast transfers, far above what would reasonably be required in a home environment.
