The modem port is defective and will not hold any Ethernet connection securely in place which will result in intermittent connection issues.
DONT TAKE MY WORD...just read all the bad reviews and you will see how bad they actually are! YOUVE BEEN WARNED....
Moving on, speeds were pretty good over both the 2.4GHz and the 5GHz bands, range was a little lacking on both bands but I'll touch on that later, I averaged about 148 Mbps Down and 18 Mbps Up on the 5Ghz band and 43 Mbps Down and 11 Mbps Up for the 2.4Ghz band which was way better than the new gateway that my ISP (Cox Cable) rolled out a couple months ago. Like I said earlier, range was pretty disappointing. Whereas my gateway had a strong connection (4 full bars) from two to three rooms away, my connection through the Amped Athena Router began dropping (2 bars) once I left the room and entered a room that was adjacent to the living room such as the kitchen. Both the router and the gateway were in the living room but in different areas (the gateway being near the wall connections, and the router on top of the entertainment center). I thought it was a bit strange at first, so I re-positioned the antennae and no dice. I then checked for some firmware updates but I was already on the latest version. Of course, when all else fails I decided power cycle the router and network setup. This did actually lead to a better performance increase (2-3 bars depending on where I stood), but it did not last as long as I'd like. Roughly three days later I was experiencing the same issues. Needless to say, I got pretty tired of having to power cycle the router and I did end up returning it.
Overall, I'd say this router would be better suited for someone in a smaller living space such as a dorm room, condo, or an apartment. I will say this though, I never had any issues with wired-in connections so I guess that's a plus.
Anyone who needs a reliable connection for streaming or VPN, advanced features like static IPs or port forwarding or connectivity for more than a few devices would be better served to look elsewhere.
