Rajeev Kadam van Electic heeft een review geupped van de Asante FR3004LC kabel/dial-up router. Dit apparaat kan functioneren als printerserver, compoort voor dialup en heeft vier 10/100 MB switch poorten. Het apparaatje is makkelijk te configureren met NAT-presets voor veelgebruikte software. In het artikeltje wordt ook nog even ingegaan op het verschil tussen een hub en een switch. De reviewer is aardig positief over de router:
This is an excellent router. It is easy to setup and install for most home and office users. Some noticeable features is that it has a print server and a com interface port for additional functionality. Another nice feature this router has is the built in 4 port switch. At a 199 dollars price, it might be slightly overpriced.
Installation was no problem at all. Everything was nicely laid out and we had the router up and running within a matter of minutes.
Asante did a good job with the documentation as well. Each feature was clearly explained and installation was also covered.
Performance could have been better. We noticed freezing during use of the administration panel. As for actual performance, it was average compared to that of most other competing home routers on the market.
Asante has packed in a great set of features. Coupled with a 4-port switch and a print server this is a great package surely to satisfy any home/office user.
Support was decent. It took us a few tries to get through but once in, service was above average to an extent. Another problem is that there appears to be no 1-800 number, so there will be charges if you call.
We had no problem finding this router in most retail establishments and online e-commerce sites.
