  • A. NO it does not "bring in" wireless connections it SUPPLIES the wireless connections to YOUR WIRED internet connection, so that your WIFI enabled devices can connect WIRELESSLY to YOUR WIRED internet connection (such as an internet modem from cable or similar). I hope this helps you better than the blind "yes" answers that others gave. As for the connection issues one user listed, there are many things that can cause thism such as using a busy channel or one that has a lot of interference. If youexperience connection issues make sure you try different channels with in the band you are setting up. if your next door neighbor is on the same channel the interference will cause connection problems. Again this was an answer supplied by someone with the lack of skills needed to set up a superior device, rather than one that makes assumptions and defaults to slower settings in cases of interferemce on setup just to make the connection work.

  • A. It may, but the one I bought was a lemon and the range seemed very poor. Go with a Linksys model with extended range... a lot of the Blu-ray players with built-in wi-fi have a more limited range than computers.

  • A. The 2.4GHz channel is capable of a theoretical throughput of 150 Mbps, and the 5Ghz channel is capable of 300 Mbps if I recall correctly.

  • A. You may want to go to the VIZIO product website to answer the tested Mbps. But depending on you are talking about the speed to the internet or speed to your internal network. Speed to the internet is based on your internet service provider's modem and your connection speed plan Internally it should transmit anywhere from 100-300Mbps

Good Value for a Simultaneous Dual Band Router

The setup was easy, although the user interface is different than any I've used before. The interface supports all the important features, I get good speeds on all the clients. Set up the 2.4ghz N band for the computers (web surfing, etc.) and the 5.0 for streaming to the Blu-Ray. Only comment..I needed to download and install the firmware update in order for it to be stable. Overall very pleased with it.

I replaced a D-Link wireless g router with this Vizio so I could have wireless N for HD streaming. I am running the 2.4 ghz band with 2 smartphones, Wii, internet radio, laptop, and a Vizio blu-ray player. Some are running wireless N and some are g. On the 5 ghz band I am running another Vizio blu-ray player. I can stream Netflix and Vudu in HD with no issues. The setup was easy and everything connected on the first try. The router does have a WPS button to make setup easier for WPS enabled devices. The signal has good range even though it does not have an external antenna. The router is in the basement of our house and the signal is still 2 to 3 bars upstairs. The ability to attach an external drive is a nice feature. For the price it is one of the best dual band routers available.

Default settings were perfect for me so easy set-up. Built in firewall. Can run N and G simultaneously on different devices which many dual band router's can't do. N network only showed up on my capable devices which made it a no- brainer. Much more security than running WEP like my previous router. No dropped connections. Could play Youtube video's on laptop in the back of the house. Glad I didn't spend 2x as much on a different router:-)

I am a pretty tech saavy person and have even built my own PCs, so installing a new router is usually an easy task. I had high hopes for this Vizio router since I have two Vizio TVs and CNET had given this high marks. But this was junk. The range was extremely poor vs. a wireless G router I was already using from Linksys (Cisco). It would not even show-up on my equipment on the next floor down in my house. And the PC right beside the router would not connect at all to the 2.4 GHz wireless, only the 5 GHz. This may be just a lemon, but that lemon has soured my taste for this router. Save yourself a lot of time and a headache... buy Linksys. I have used several other brands such as Netgear and Belkin and have always had issues, but NEVER with Linksys. I am taking this one back to Walmart and buying a Linksys wireless N, as I should have from the start.

I was worried about setup and conflicts since I was connecting through a Qwest, DSL-router and would be adding a wireless router to it. Just follow the Quick Start Guide directions, and you will be up and running in less than 15 minutes. This is by far the easiest installation of a router ever and no conflicts. GREAT PRICE and works like a CHAMP!!!

I bought this router so I could use my new Vizio internet connected wi fi ready tv in my bedroom without having to run an ethernet cable from the livingroom where my dsl modem is set up to my computer. I followed the easy provided instructions and hooked it up to my dsl modem and followed the online instructions on my computer and my tv found the wireless signal and now I can watch Netflix in my bedroom without any cables getting in my way in the bedroom. It works great! I love this router. A great purchase for the price. It sits behind my computer monitor in the livingroom out of sight. I recommend this to anyone who has basic computer knowledge.
