Hi,
We are looking for the quickest and most efficient way to test a very large lot of returned routers. We do not have the time to configure each router. So we are looking for some other alternatives?

Additionally is there any quicker way for the Dongles besides plugging them into a computer?

And finally, is just power on testing for the routers effective in any way?

Please let me know.

Thank You

How thoroughly do you want to test?

 

How much time per router is acceptable?

 

I don't see a quicker way for the dongles other than installing them on a computer, I'd use an extension of some sort so you don't wear out the port on the computer.  The only other solution would be some custom tester.

 

A power on test lets you know that it isn't totally fried, but doesn't give you any idea of what does work beyond the fact that it powers up.

Hi,

As through as possible without configuring them.  Is there a device that can send a ping to the router.

All same make?  If mixed makers you have your hands full.
