  1. i'm fairly positive its VIVE and not VIVA otherwise my ISP made :P
  2. In before Apple sues D-Link.

    That is a pretty sexy router, though. Hopefully its internal components and software have been given the same attention as its chassis.
  3. ripoff

    $200 should give N450+ AC1300

    The QOS crap is software and is open source and has been available for years, and is always better on custom firmware such as tomato.

    Even worst it makes heavy use of cloud crap meaning when they decide to stop supporting it or kill the cloud crap, then your router suddenly loses much of it's functionality.
  4. I guess maybe this'll be handy for larger households of uncooperative users, where it may keep one person's torrents from clogging up another's video. But ideally those are simply solved issues of just configuring your stuff so it wouldn't do that in the first place.

    Past that my experience is most issues happen outside the house, where neither this router nor any other will have any ability to fix them.
  5. Fairly positive that wireless n devices cant go 450 Gbps...
  6. Erm... This is QoS right? Which my current, ISP-supplied router has?

    It works out what type of traffic it is, and prioritises it, e.g. ensuring that VoIP traffic doesn't have to wait behind other stuff.

    How is this news?
  7. I wonder if this style of router comes with a stand because it doesnt look very sturdy to me.

    Two QoS systems are not always the same, different methods and algorithms tend to have very different results.
