The LevelOne WBR-6000 router is a good product in many respects, but its main advantage – the support for the new-generation wireless standard – is questionable. Perhaps this will be corrected in firmware updates, but right now this router is good at everything except for wireless networking. It has a high speed of the WAN interface, even though we have some apprehensions about it as we explained in the article.
The interface of its setup manager is no good, but still, the WBR-6000 may come in handy for a beginner user who wants to deploy a small home network. A strong argument is favor of this model is its low price, about $50. Such cheap routers make the new wireless standard available to more user categories.
