OK reviews (3 out of 5 eggs) over at newegg
I think the price is down from the last time I saw it on Woot. Also 2TB 2.5" drives start at $100, so you’re getting wifi and ethernet for $10.
So-So reviews but for the price and compatibility with Time Machine, in for one.
WD should stick to hardrives, because their routers are shit. had 2 of similar model, both died. Sticking with dlink
I gave up on this -DEFECTIVE product - if it seems to good to be - IT IS - NEVER WORKED until I got support, which lied about taking the 2TB drive out said it could not, I did and saved the total lost monies spent. To many issues to list all the ones other than NEVER work all the time, can only have upto 20 secure items (never stated that either). I am using the 2TG drive in my PC as a back up drive (SSD drive for OS) so unless you want a 2TB drive stay away!
Some reviews at the mothership say everything works better with newer firmware, while others say everything sucks, always.
This geeky link has some notes on hacking and tweaking, but suggests there will never be an OpenWRT for this router.
I use my 1TB MyNet Central for tons of movies on my home network and it works great. I don’t have excessive rebooting or anything, I think the reviews are because the setup is a tad bit challenging at first if you don’t know what you are doing but as far as actual functionality it seems to work just fine.
For someone with several kids and multiple devices, this seems like a solid product to be travel movie/music storage. Reviews aren’t stellar, but 3 of 5 isn’t too bad for $100. I’m in for one.
I have the N900 and N750 at home with the N750 as an access point. Both sans the HD. But they work fine for me and only had to reboot once when family came over and couldn’t connect.
I got the 1TB version a while ago, and it works pretty well, although I had some trouble with the mobile app for a bit. But it started working one day and has worked since then. If you need a new router I definitely recommend this one.
I have the 750 w/o the HDD. It is a mediocre router. It works fine, but it seems to struggle if there is a lot of traffic. Also, WD dropped their router line so don’t look for support or future models.
If you have your own external hard drive to plug in and want to save about 1/2 your money check out the Wi-fi-Stor from EasyACC.
Setup isn’t for the faint of heart but if you know how things work it’s quite the convenient little black box.
FYI: This product is no longer supported by WD. So while I am upto a challenge and often buy project electronics, this is not one I would spend my time on.
I own a MyNet 900 and it was painful. The people at WD missed simple things like enabling the fan on the router (you can turn it on manually using ssl and it works a world better). There is no OpenWRT support as it uses a Ubicom processor, however WD does provide the source code (built on Linux). Also older revisions of the firmware are available on the forum. Ultimately what the WD mynet devices needed was more effort to be spent on the firmware. If someone wants to put in the time have at it.
I have to reboot my router a few times a week. Sometimes 2-3 times a day… can I exchange for an different one?
Unfortunately, it appears that the 6 Month Warranty has expired on the item.
You can try, however, to email into Western Digital Support to see if they can help troubleshoot the issue you’re experiencing.
