Thanks VivYip. I had a family member ask me recently to find them a router and this fits the bill. Gigabit ethernet and wireless N simultaneous dual band for $30 seems pretty hot to me... Green!

Got 2..great price.

No DD-WRT support at this time

Thanks OP

Thanks OP, got two. Never had a WD router before. Also guys, rewards statements came this morning for me. Ended up not even spending cash! Check your rewards accounts!

got one, thanks OP

Thx OP. Always good to have a spare router on hand.

in for one thanks OP..

N 4 1.

Was going to get a Cisco comparable one. Will try this one out and see. Thanks for the heads up.

Great price! Got one. Thanks OP!

Is the antenna extra?

You should know this.

it has really bad reviews on Newegg.com, some bad reviews on Amazon.com

Before running out and buying a WD router, take a look a their own User Community message board. Pretty uneven experiences. I was really interested in the N900 before reading the reviews, now I'm a little more hesitant. $29 is really cheap, but understand what you're getting is the first generation of hardware from a company new to the router business.

It seems like EVERY router I have looked at the reviews are all over the place not sure if some people's lack of technical skills skews the ratings toward the low end

I have never seen a router with no antenna.
Really....
Switches of course do not have them, I use 2 and cascade them....

I never saw a Purple Cow,
I never hope to see one;
But I can tell you, anyhow,
I'd rather see than be one.

thanks... mixed reviews but cant beat the price and obvious upgrade to my ancient wrt

OK, so it is not a wireless router, why not just say that.

yesidonoitall said:   OK, so it is not a wireless router, why not just say that.

yes it is. i'm not sure what that guy was getting at, but if it says router and it says 802.11 anything then it's a wireless device

OK, I guess they make them with no external antennas now.

Thanks OP

In for one. Ordered at in-store Kiosk and used a 5 off $25 check in coupon so I got it for $25. Paid with rewards so no tax....

The antennas are within the unit.

where did you get the 5 off $25?

A bit skeptical with the last WD N600 router dropping signals but will give this another chance.

It could be the one from last week

My router is wired and it' old. Can I add a wireless router if my tv antenna is indoors? TV reception is spotty at best and I don't want it to get worse. TV and main computer are in the same room and pretty close to each other.

Yes you can add a wifi router, it won't interfere with TV signals it's different frequencies. At worst you might get some interference on a cordless phone (home phone not cell phone) from the router but that's rare.

Your ISP will have the answer to these questions. You should be able to buy or lease a wireless router from your provider. This cost would be a question for your wireless cable or satellite ISP provider. Buying the equipment will vary on your actual month-to-month costs (leasing), so do the math.

Anyway, after you have a wireless setup, then yes, you can buy a router like this and be set-up, if it matches your specs. Most 802.11N references for the wireless speed of the router will likely be on the underside of the router, so look at it and see what your router is compatible with. The current protocol is the "N" series of wireless routers, so go for a router that can handle "N" speeds, versus slow routers that are very cheap but only give you speed of a 54g wireless router.

Many of your questions can be answered by your own ISP. Instead of being sinister, evil people out to get you, give them a call, they want your business. My personal experience is that calling and negotiating with your ISP can quickly mean real savings.

The cordless phone is also next to the computer - cramped quarters - so it might be a problem. Is there any type of filter I can buy for the phone? I know in the old days they put a filter on your alternator so the car radio didn't pick up any interference.

As long as you don't receive any calls on the cordless phone, you will be okay. Making calls should not be a problem. When someone calls, just ask them to hang up and then call them right back.

You do know we are talking about a modem, right? Why bring up the old days? Modem is short for modern mobile.

OK, sounds good and it makes sense. The phone is fairly old and I know one of the neighbors said he can listen in on the calls with some type of radio that he's got. If I get this router perhaps I can keep the same number but then starting using Google voice for my outgoing calls. Since that's done on the computer everything should be good. Thanks for the tip.

Hey man, the old days were fun. We had automobiles and they were modern mobiles.

Are you sure? A cordless phone is mobile so Modern mobile makes sense.
