I am very sad to say that I have returned my AR750 Slate. I’m really bummed, because the feature set is exactly what I wanted for a travel router, and I was really excited to get it – I’m a remote worker, and I intend to travel a lot and to use a router like this for work from locations I visit.
The problem was stability. It constantly dropped connection to the “upstream” wifi. So my windows devices would constantly show “no internet connection”. Sometimes it would drop “all the way”, and its own private wifi would not show up. It’s very easy to repro, all you have to do is set it up to connect to wifi connection (not wired), connect a device to it, and then do something that will use bandwidth (like running SpeedTest.net). It will generally drop out in a couple of tries. It’s more likely to fail if you set up VPN on it (which was one of the features I was so excited about).
I can see online that I’m far from the only one with this problem, and I can see posts as far back as 2019, so it must be an ongoing issue.
I’m not writing this to troll – I’m writing this to tell you that if you should ever get the stability problem fixed, I will enthusiastically buy a new one. I really wanted this product to work. Sadly, it doesn’t.
