Final Thoughts

 

The Air Live WN-300R has many great features. The isolated dual SSIDs is great for any small office and for homes that might have need for an isolated wireless network (for friends or wireless consoles). Where it all breaks down, however, is performance. It is simply not there yet. Air Live needs to allow for better selection of wireless specification (like N only or N+G). They also need to make certain pages of the firmware more intuitive.

 

I feel that the WN-300R is not meant for most homes; the features Air Live has put into the WN-300R are more in line with a small office or a home office that would have need for these options. The QoS while it had a list of services, did not include any games nor streaming video; it was more about common networking functions like HTTP, FTP, etc than what you would see in most homes.

 

Price was also a slight issue. At roughly $80 U.S. Dollars, the Air Live is a little pricey for its speed range, although some of the more advanced features help to make up for that. But this is only if you can use the extra features; if they are of no use then the price is going to be a problem at the speeds we saw.
