Quality


I still award five stars and recommend this product.

Positive Review

First, it was a little overwhelming with the amount of options this little thing can do.

Positive Review

This thing was horribly unstable (crashes/reboots/freezes) with the shipped version 2.

Negative Review

After that, i lost the connection and could not connect to it even with the ethernet cable.

Negative Review

Here and there, there were issues with my own cell phone (iphone) losing it's hotspot with my cell provider, but that had nothi...  Read More

Neutral Review

The seller was great, the product works great.

Neutral Review

Packaging/appearance


However, when i bought the router, it was seemingly bricked out of the box.

Neutral Review

There is a network disruption when that happens which is independent of the gl-ar150.

Neutral Review

Competitiveness


The speed is better than anything i'll find while on the road and the range works great for a 40ft trailer.

Positive Review

Inet again, especially if they develop a more powerful home router at a competitive price.

Neutral Review

The cost of this unit is just silly compared to other brands.

    Update 7/03/19: the problem reported on 5/04/19 is likely to have been caused by the router's reaction to the phone hotspot's device handling when too many devices try to directly connect to the phone.

    But before i noticed that, i installed the rooter firmware which is also based on openwrt.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    That seemed to work well (aside from the main issue which i believe now was caused by my phone and not the router).


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    And with many options for firmware support, this router can be kept up-to-date for years to come.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    This router does something to cause these apps to pause and reconnect.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    System logs show that the router's firewall is being reset every few minutes.

    Update 4/27/19: one day something happened to our gl-ar150's configuration.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    The phone hotspot would say it was connected to the gl-ar150 each time the hotspot was turned on, but the gl-ar150 didn't enable routing to the hotspot.
