Just read a review which seems to share your opinion about slow transfer speeds good chart here Then, I decided to test the transfer speed using 2 external HDDs: ADATA Superior SH14 – 1 Tb and WD My Passport – 4 Tb and the results are: SanDisk Extreme Pro 95 Mb/s 3/10 – 16 Gb with WD My Passport – 4 Tb = 09 min 09 secKingston 90 Mb/s 3/10 – 128 Gb with WD My Passport – 4 Tb = 08 min 44 secKingston 90 Mb/s 3/10 – 128 Gb with ADATA Superior SH14 – 1 Tb = 08 min 36 secSanDisk Extreme Pro 95 Mb/s 3/10 – 16 Gb with ADATA Superior SH14 – 1 Tb = 08 min 44 secIt seems there are some differences when using an external HDD instead of a USB stick and it could offer “unlimited” storage space” for your travel needs. But, the speed gain isn’t really a significant progress and an external HDD takes more space in your bag, not to mention that spinning its disks will consume more energy from the FileHub RP-WD03’s battery. http://www.sebastianboatca.com/backup-ravpower-filehub-review/

leelukehope

Does the job but transfers do seem to be very slow. Unsure why considering it's all on local network. Nonetheless it's a very useful gadget.

I think you have to use the FileHub app which is in the App Store

How well does this work on the iPhone? Can I view contents of SD cards using the standard Files app. And for example copy and play Wav files? Or is it photos only.

Exactly (exactly!) The same with me. Great little system.

ScroopEgerton

Thanks just bought one to add to my other three. this is a really good system with a useful app. Wifi never drops out, always get a really good signal. Needed one extra as the living room TV was a little way from a node and Netflix occasionally stalls.

fergus.corbett

There are other options, but Velop ticked all the boxes for me as an all round package - speed / reliability / looks / controls. It created a much stronger WiFi and I now run 5 nodes across a 200m house. The big difference is the speed I can get further away from the modem and especially outside. It is also possible to prioritise up to 3 devices. Some people have struggled to set them up, but it’s a doddle if you follow the instructions and use the phone app

Parallax

It is/was a premium unit so there is quite a lot of flexibility. It will run as either a router or in bridge mode. What do you mean by static routes? It only has two Ethernet ports so one would be WAN and one LAN (it somewhat intelligently decides which is which) so you don't have much scope for fancy routing topologies, the WAN port is always going to be the default route. You can customise the channels it uses or it will auto pick. It has a third channel it uses for just communicating between the nodes, which is good, then two channels for endpoints. Be nice and don't use wide channels unless you're in the countryside, I'm tired of retuning my channels just because some idiot has gained access to the settings and seen 20MHz vs 40MHz and thought that a wider channel will give them more bandwidth.

sonofgojira

Will this allow static routes? And how customisable is it? Separate bands etc. Many thanks

This package comes with the router and one satellite for £172, covers 4000 square foot. You can add more satellites should you wish to do so.

So, don't you need to buy a satellite in addition to this router, taking minimum spend to well over £200 to get a working system in place?

bootx1

Good router, has some limitations. Bought for £49.99 last year and have seen it as low as that a few times since. I installed dd-wrt on it to use as a wireless bridge and access point, however the support isn't there for this router, so had lots of drop out issues. Eventually I hard wired the connection and returned it to stock firmware and it has been rock solid reliable. Shame it doesn't have the support for dd-wrt, or wireless bridge in the stock firmware, others do but they command a higher price or lower speed. Nonetheless, this is a good router for the price.

smallsteve

I doubt you will find a router that is revered by everyone! You will always get the mixed bag of reviews ranging from great to lousy. This is likely because everybody’s home and requirements are different and this can affect the wireless dramatically. Most people have neither the desire nor technical expertise to deal with this and so the user experience can vary wildly.

GregSt

It's not bad router, you just have to change some settings before you start using it - disable smart connect and use different names for 2.4GHz and 5GHz, never had any issues with it.

Now, let's say, you're about to walk into a big meeting. It's very important. You look for your usb stick and/or router - they're not there! Now what do you do?

VPN is always on (OpenVPN Server 1) on the router, there's a kill switch rule in an Iptables command. Guess I could try it on Server 2. Encryption is aes-cbc-256 I think, tried it with 128 but no difference. :(

CPU plays a big part. Depends on many factors too like the type of encryption but 10Mbps does seem low mind. Do you have certain routes over the VPN or is it the default gateway when up?

popolou

I don't disagree and even would say that you could well be right. The standard/factory firmware is actually fine as it 'just works' but it really isn't difficult to get a custom open source firmware, flash it, wait for the reboot and....it'll also work with no further configuration. In fact, some of these custom firmwares will come with all the security tweaks and mods that actually protect you online - not least a much better & fully configured firewall. Even at the normal RRP it is a very good bit of kit so anything less is frankly bonkers value.

Roger_Irrelevant

What bandwidth do people get who have modern routers with VPN on the router? Got an AC-RT66U 40mbps with VPN switched off, drops to ~10mbps with it on, have heard the CPU's struggle with the encryption but am not convinced?

Great router even on their own. Bear in mind that all three are the same so you can always split the cost between three people if you like. At least with the US models, if your primary node in the mesh is a UK one any other US ones in the mesh will switch to UK frequencies. You will get 5Ghz on the legal bands etc.

At home I have a Ubiquiti ERLite-3 Edge Router, and I have x2 Ruckus R510 access points handling the wifi. Virtually 0 issues with this set up, can't remember the last time I had to reboot any of the APs or the router itself. Honestly you could use a cheap router in modem only mode (so it only handles routing and the wireless functionality is turned off), coupled with either a singular cheap wireless access point or some sort of mesh enabled multiple AP setup (think I've seen deals for these sorts of devices from time to time on here). Or if you've got old routers hanging around that you can re-purpose as access points only you could do that and save a whole bunch of money.

Looked this up because I thought it was crazy but sure enough: "Your Guest clients will be on the same IP network as your main network. This way, your Guest clients can join your main network, ( i.e., you can invite guest clients to game with you, and you don’t need to provide your guest with your personal wireless password of the main network)." https://www.linksys.com/us/support-article?articleNum=270546 If Linksys don't know how to implement a guest network VLAN properly I wouldn't trust them implementing any feature correctly.
