Vizio XWR100 dual-band wireless router

 

Though categorized as an accessory specifically for home entertainment devices from Vizio, the XWR100 wireless router will more than satisfy users with any wireless networking needs. In fact, if it supported Gigabit Ethernet, it'd be one of the best...

The Vizio XWR100 Dual Band HD Wireless Internet Router offers solid performance and a user-friendly Web interface. The router supports true dual-band, USB external hard drives, is easy to use, and comes in an aesthetically pleasing design.

The Vizio XWR100 doesn't support Gigabit Ethernet. Its network storage function can't write to external hard drives formatted in NTFS file system. The Web interface offers limited customization of its settings and features.

The Vizio XWR100 Dual Band HD Wireless Internet Router is arguably one of the best sub-$100 wireless routers on the market, and it's a must-have for those with network-ready home entertainment devices from Vizio.

This might possibly be the world's best wireless router, at the moment

 

I'm living in South Korea, where Internet is insanely fast and cheap. My area is over-crowded on the 2.4GHz band, so my older wireless N router was having a problem keeping a steady connection. I decided to upgrade to a dual-band router to ...

Cheap, 110/220V, dual-band, easy to set up, good signal strength, reliable, cheap

Setup Menus are a bit over-simplified for my tastes. But I can live with that

"Not as good as I thought!"

 

This is an okay router but if you have more than about 2 things to wireless connect to it, you mise well forget it!!!

Price

Cheap feeling

"Very good router"

 

I've seen the other reviews and just speaking for myself, this router has been a good investment for me especially for the $25 & free shipping I paid for it. I have only had this router for 2 days so I will write more later if there are problems.

Easy set-up, haven't had to reset, my old router I had to reset twice a day. No problems with range, runs computer and media without buffering.

None so far at this time.

"Great deal for the price I paid."

 

I paid $20 for a store demo model without a power supply. At that price it was a steal.

Easy to set up and configure.

Doesn't give access to low level settings and has limited configuration options.

Consumer review by:

"I want to give it a 5, but it freezes constantly."

 

I wouldn't recommend it. It would be a 5 for almost all users if the firmware was updated/it didn't constantly need to be restarted.

Easy to set up.

Settings are almost too simple. If you want to do more advanced things with it, good luck.

"Under consideration"

 

A month ago I would have given this 5 stars. Perhaps it will be OK in the future.

When it works, it is great.

I have had it for about 6 months. In the lat 4-6 weeks, the wireless signal drops off. I REBOOT by removing the power and then restarting. It has happened 3 times in the last month. Works great with my wireless Sony Blu-Ray.

"This product is terrible. Do not waste your money"

 

It works for very short periods of time. The Vizio customer service is useless. I have owned this router for 4 months. During that time I have been on the phone with customer service for 30 plus hours. They have sent me two routers and will not refund...

Works well with the Vizio Blue Ray player

Constantly drops internet. Students, don't waste your money. You are better off going to Starbucks to do your homework.

Consumer review by:

"Not Reliable and USB Function doesn't work."

 

The router drops the connections several times a week. Plus the usb function doesn't work. I contacted support about the usb not working and they sent me a replacement. Guess what the replacement doesn't work and support told me it was my computers....
