Purchased this when our old router had trouble keeping up with our increased number of devices. That said, we rarely stream anything, so the bar is not high. Once the antennas were well oriented, the router has served our entire two-story (frame) house from its location near a wall in the basement. We use several wired connections, and service there was been seamless too. In one year, the only attention we've paid to the router is a couple of forced resets that turned out to be issues from the cable service. The Tether app for Android is way cool, showing the details of all active network connections, but we've had no reason to put it to practical use.
