    I bought this router a few months ago and was looking forward to new hardware for a higher routing capability with streaming etc. But I strongly disagree with the conclusions of DumaOS. It is extremely slow and really kills the usability of the router itself. Navigating within the menus is painfully slow. It's clearly build by tech geeks and not actual admin people as the information presented in the different pages is really pointless and above all difficult to interpret.
    I've also notices that the WAN routing capability is severely compromised (with or without DumaOS tweaks active). My 300 Mbit WAN connection constantly fluctuates and I seldomly get full speed.

    I've been in contact with the developers for some explication, but after a dead-end troubleshooting I've replaced it with my old Netgear R7000. It's faster, more stable and has better security protocols.
