However, I would like to express how dis-appointed I am in it. While the router does work great for wired clients; I am having to re-boot the router twice every-day for wireless clients to stay connected (both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz). I've upgraded to the latest firmware and have tried factory resetting the router. It will work perfectly for about 3 hours. Eventually, it will fail to allow new wireless clients to authenticate. And, with previously authenticated wireless clients it will do one or more of the following thing:
--some are disconnected and then cannot re-authenticate
--some can only reach local ip addresses including the router but not the internet
--some seem to stay wirelessly authenticated but cannot reach any address
What a disappointment for a promising router. Hopefully this is a known issue and gets solved quickly. Please inform.

After some more searching I found a thread that mentioned unchecking the box "Disable IGMP Proxying" under the WAN settings. I tried this and BAM! all of the company's wireless devices maintain their connection. So I guess I wont be chunking it anytime soon but I still cant wait to get the Sonicwall online!
