I'm going to watch this thread as I'm interested as well. I sold my DLink 655. It didn't have loopback support (not saying this one would) and I have no use for it right now. I'm currently shopping for a network adapter and really want to match up manufacturers.
Having the FCC ID number would be handy so anyone could look it up instead of going through smallnetbuilder.
Sash doesn't have a lot of time right now due to school (if you read his sig)... so there is time to get him one. Since it isn't available there then one of us in the us would have to purchase and mail it.
Question... if we mail it is there the option of getting it back once completed or is it handy to have around for updates, etc?
EDIT: This router has the second fastest throughput when compared with others in smallnetbuilder (total simultanious). The next fastest that's worth a hoot is the Netgear WNDR3700 which is my other option.
This router is roughly (not exactly) 1/2 the cost of the WNDR3700
running DD-WRT I would imagine this router would perform better than the netgear would and it has external antennas.
Gigabit Ports to Boot!!
Main question is if you have need for 5 Ghz radio
So forgive me if I'm being ignorant about foreign mailing practices, but can't we just contribute money through PayPal towards this cause and let them buy one off of Amazon? That might be a very "American" thing to say but I assume you can have one shipped from a company as easily as you can ship it from person to person right?
Speed Booster (hardware network engine) up 17% (real test for me is how fast will Cafe World on Face Book will be under netbook, laptop and quad-core desktop) Can it get any faster?
One Touch Setup (ya, ya)
P2P Enhanced Hardware

Note: Position was move to less interference area.
DD-WRT on this hardware would be great to increase the mW to say 70. 802.11g is weak in this router. 802.11n is stronger. P2P 19000 Max-C no bottlenecks. Tested it with Vuze & PeerBlock along with my TCP.SYS set to 200 and Vuze set to 100 seems the max for that software. 300mb file had came down so fast I couldn't clock it. Prior with a Belkin N+ I was seeking 2-3.6Mb/s down.
Uploading the videos to youtube use take a long time. Part 4 was done in 1080P took me 5 minutes to upload to them. Transfers files of 1.13GB just took seconds. That's PCI-E Gig Dual Direction adapters. _________________ Best Regards,
I think part of it has to do with the single band and the wndr3700 being watched closely right now. Plus the fact that they cannot get one locally yet. It would take someone mailing a router to them so it can be supported, since they can't do much with donations for this router.
ESR-9850 blows the WNDR-3700 out of the water that only can do 4096 max connections as the ESR-9850 maxes out at 19727 for P2P. HNE (Hardware Network Engine for WAN to LAN and LAN to WAN from 619 to 704mbps reported on SNB site where as the WNDR-3700 maxes out at 4xxmbps. Images shown how mb/s transfer is on P2P. Since I use that as the main DHCP router it's really quick.
ESR-9855G was released in USA I doubt DD-WRT will work on since the processor speed of IP7K is 475MHz and 8MB Flash and 64MB DDR applied in ESR9855G along with 100mW for wireless as the ESR-9850 only has 50mW. _________________ Best Regards,
Are you sure? I have one myself since about 5-6 months now. As I'm a official Senao-Engenius dealer I can tell you the ESR-9850 is available in Europe for months already. My own shop offers this as well other Engenius-Senao routers and I'm from The Netherlands (thus within Europe).
I don't know how you get to that point that it's not available within Europe?
But to be hounest... I'm also curious if there will be support for the ESR-9850 as well in the future.
You'd think its a weak router because the troughput is only 100mbits, but the real reason is that it (unfortunately) only has a 100mbit/sec switch.
Take a look at the simultanious connections numbers instead.
Did you think the 19700 simultanious connections on the ESR-9850 was impressive?... Try 44000(!!) on the ESR-7750. The only other tested router that beat it was the Neatgear SRX-5308 which costs pretty exactly 10x as much =P
I think most likely this router has a lot of routing power but is just limited by the switch. The ESR-9850 managed 50mbits with basic QoS function turned on (bandwidth limiting rule). I think this would do just as well if not better - as long as you dont need the gigabit switch :)
Cheapest price i found and they do international shipping
yea, even though it gets sold cheaper on newegg in the US, this seems like a good way forthe devs to just order their own directly (via donations). Its less hassle than having someone buy one and ship it to them and also it allows for several people to chip in with donations to cover the cost.
