comment
" ...  Speedtest went from ~30 mbps over wireless to about 60 mbps. ... I think the link I followed was Manito Networks or something like that. ... Still, this is the best router out there for under ~$150, and it's been rock solid since installing it.  ...  "

" ...  The hEX is a full-function firewall/router. ... But most home wifi routers are LESS sophisticated than really needed. ... Meanwhile, the Mikrotik hEX is unmatched at its price for enabling significant home network security improvements.  ...  "

" ...  I set up my previous router, a Linksys EA3500, as a wireless bridge and the hEX had no issues.  ...  "
comment
" ...  It's really fast for an inexpensive router.  ...  "
comment
" ...  If you need a wired-only router (i.e., one that does not do wifi), this is a great product. ... I was very pleasantly surprised to find that setup was a breeze - certainly no more difficult than setting up a consumer-grade wifi router. ... If you need a wired router, I highly recommend this one.  ...  "

" ...  I had it up and running in minutes for basic internet access and not much longer to have my VPN's up and running  ...  "

" ...  It's firewall is extremely robust, and has far more capability than the average user will ever need.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I was a little nervous about setting it up as I am not an IT pro, and some reviews make it sound like setup is for experts only. ... The directions are printed on the box and very easy to follow.  ...  "
comment
" ...  For some rules it's easiest to use the web GUI, and some folks really cannot get comfortable with the command line. ... For those who CAN deal with the command line, hEX can allow telnet, ssh, and sftp access. ... Since the sequence of rules is critical in a firewall, it's nice to know that Mikrotik makes it possible to add rules to specific places, especially if you use the generous comment facility to identify distinct rules and purposes.  ...  "

" ...  And winbox is the greatest config tool ever devised.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Nice Interface (WinBox).  ...  "

" ...  It's just amazing and hard to understand how it can do all that.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Yes, the configuration _can_ be daunting but they have a fantastic wiki.  ...  "
comment
" ...  If you're a real networking maven, there's reportedly a command line interface that offers even more capability (I haven't needed to use that, although I may buy another and set up a test network just to teach myself a little more).  ...  "

" ...  Literally all that I had to do was connect one ethernet cable from my fiber box (the input), connect the other ethernet cables going to any wired devices (I used all four, but this depends on how many wired devices you have), connect the power cable, and reset the password using the web interface.  ...  "
