Newegg open box router?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I know a lot of people buy open box GPUs, but I assume that's because there aren't a lot of parts. I just purchased an open box Asus RT-N56U for $54 rush shipped because my current router just died. I was warned in the message it could be missing cables because it's open box. Is this something I should be concerned with, or is it just very precautionary of them? Thanks for the input, hope my deal is still as good as I think it is!

I Imagine it is mostly precautionary but when you think about it what cables do routers use? There is usually a short RJ45 cable and the power cable and very little else. I wouldn't be worried.

Now that I've read a bit more on my router, I'm concerned about heat. Probably the reason it was returned, but if they "check" it, they probably just plug it in and see if it has power.

In which case I can take it to asus to remedy the situation, correct?

Unfortunatly there is an issue with the router. My Xbox cannot connect via wifi. Wired connection is fine but wifi is very slow, slower than my old belkin.

Upgrade to the latest firmware, it can fix a lot of issues.
