Rosewill RNX-N300RT Review
This router is affordable and generally works well, but some users say its range is shorter than average and a few report lost signals.
A modestly priced router for sure, but one that does the job most users want and expect. Rosewill RNX-N300RT reviews at Newegg are largely positive, with many comments about its reliability and overall value. Most say the range is more than sufficient, some say it's mediocre, and a few grumble that it's short, but as one Rosewill RNX-N300RT review points out, the upside of limited range is less opportunity for outsiders to piggyback off your signal. Users generally say setup proceeds apace, and while some report a few hiccups, Rosewill RNX-N300RT reviews say problems are quickly resolved by the company's first-rate technical support team. Rosewill RNX-N300RT reviews posted at Amazon commend the router's user-friendly attributes and performance, and one notes the improved HD streaming this model delivers compared to others. We did come across a couple of complaints about dropped signals after several months of use.
The Rosewill RNX-N300RT boasts good security features, with a built-in firewall and support for WEP and WPA2. Like others in its class it supposedly can hit up to 300Mbps (but probably doesn't in a typical home or office setting; we found no expert tests for this model) and comes with four LAN ports. It supports 802.11b/g/n connections and runs in the 2.4GHz band. It includes a WPS button, as well.
The Rosewill RNX-N300RT is a good entry-level router for the price, and most buyers assert that it works well. For some users, particularly those less technically-inclined, it may be a little trickier to set up than other models but is still fairly straightforward (remember, tech support is on standby). In sum, this is a good value buy.
