    DNS resolving/lookup takes forever when using the router; if i don't use it, i get into sites immediately. if i go through the router, i have to wait 15 seconds before the site starts to load, while i wait for "Looking up example.com"

    it will happily let you connect, via a network cable, but then randomly lose the connection (but still show as being connected). Buggy, flaky, and often incapable of remembering the firmware settings you've selected. Cheap, in both senses of the word.

    it's very buggy.

  • -1

    If it is reset, it will not be possible to connect to it with wirelessly (to connect to it, you either need to connect via cable or factory reset it, and set it up from the beginning.

    found the cause to my DNS problem: ipv6. So if you have this router, do not use ipv6, use ipv4. for most people ipv4 is default, so don't worry; ipv6 is only enabled upon specific request.
