The internet speed for this router does match stated specs. But buyers beware if you are going to use this to connect a hard drive to use as a media hub in your house. The router does have USB 3.0 ports which should handle up to 640MBps HOWEVER, the router has to ‘convert’ the signals from Ethernet (or wifi) to USB interface which normally takes a good bit of CPU power. That’s why you computer can handle it easily, but this router cannot. After a few speed tests, with Gigabit Ethernet LAN connection (1Gbps) to the router and connecting a USB 3.0 external hard drive, I was only able to get a max transfer speed of 5Mbps which is not even close to the theoretical 640MBps speed. Is is good for just internet use? Yes. Will it be good for a printer USB connection? Yes. It is a good router for Media Hub applications? My opinion, No. Hence, the three stars.
