Initially I was a bit sceptical about whether or not to buy this router after reading the mixed reviews, but anyway decided to go for it since it was real value for money considering all the features, especially the dual band support.After using it for five months and being satisfied with its performance, I bought a second one at just Rs 1300 which was a steal deal for such a good router.I am on a 50Mbps fiber connection and have tried routers of multiple brands, but none of them could provide me optimum WiFi signal throughout the house with satisfactory speed. So I decided to try out this iBall router after doing some research and especially since it seemed to be a value for money device.Now I get ample coverage except at the farthest corners and good speed too, even beyond 2 thick walls and 2 doors which none of my previous routers could provide. So I bought the second router which I use in WISP mode (similar to repeater mode) to eliminate all the dead spots and now the two iBall WRD 12EN routers provide signals over an area of 4000sq ft which is really impressive. Also I have to mention that in WISP mode, I still get the full 50Mbps speed through the second router without any loss (When configuring WISP mode on the second router, choose the 5Ghz network SSID of the primary router for best performance).In short, if you have a large house over 3500sq ft, I recommend you to buy a pair of these and use one as your primary router and keep the second one in WISP mode. This way you need not buy a single expensive router which won't provide you blanket coverage, plus you don't have to invest in repeaters which may not be quite efficient in delivering the full throughput and also brings up the cost significantly.PROS:- Cheapest router with both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz band (Sometimes you get it during sales for as low as Rs 999).- 2.4 Ghz signal penetration is excellent. Capable of transmitting signals through thick walls and doors.- Easy to configure.- Works 24x7, no need to reboot at all and absolutely no heating.- Has a dedicated Android app which can be used to control the router even remotely!- Has beamforming feature which enables the router to determine the location of your device and project strong signals precisely to that location thereby improving the wifi reception.- MU-MIMO support.- Has anti-interference if enabled reduces the interference if there are a lot of wifi networks in your area.- Bandwidth control for every connected device which lets you set the upload and download speed for all devices.- Has Guest Mode with speed limiting.- Can configure a VPN account directly to this router. (PPTP/L2TP supported)- Can turn off the LED lights or schedule it to turn off automatically during specified hours.- Can clone a MAC address.- Can be mounted to wall for better coverage.- 3 year warranty with good after sales support.CONS:- 5Ghz signal is not strong enough. After one wall, the 5Ghz WiFi signal deteriorates.- No IPv6 support.- No VLAN support.PS: This is not a Gigabit router. So if you have an ISP connection offering speeds above 100Mbps, then look for a different product.
Router is very Good easy to setup and can be fixed on wall..!! But there is weird problem it frquently disconnects the connection..!! and while it is getting connected youtube is not working while other apps google search every single apps works expect youtube.!!Coverage is Good and speed is fast specially in 5G but this weirdness of frequent disconnection and blockage of youtube.. Making it pathetic router i have ever seen..!!I ball of u r seeing reviews pls solve this flawP. S i got seal open box from Seller and it seems used amazon didnt accpeted return also..!! Seller named "Global IT Reatil" please avoid buying from such seller better Buy offline and give 200/300 extra..!!
It's dual band with 2.4 and 5 GHz signals, two WiFi options.Also noticed people having problem with connectivity like Google play store, YouTube... I suggest them to go to ACCESS CONTROL option and edit the blacklist and whitelist as required, I was having the same issue, I took ME days to notice. Switch off the WEB ACCESS LIMIT or type in a site which YOU don't access at all in the blacklist, also check the time set for the WiFi. It will help.
It's basically a rebranded Tenda AC5 router, flashed Tenda firmware and all iBall branding was gone, using it with tenda app since then.
Even though it says that it supports more than 1gb data transfer, do not get fooled by it. This is not a Gigabit WiFi router. The Ethernet port on the back only supports a maximum speed of 100mbps. So even though it claims to support more than 1gbps speed, you will never get speed of more than 100mbps, and the wifi standard 801ac is completely wanted on this product.Also point to note here, the range even in 2.4ghz isn't that great.
