ASUS Drops the Ball (Hey - it's football season)

P J Penrose, Amazon
6 October 2014
  • Summary: As this is a product review, it will include the quality of customer service: I bought this to connect to my 5.0Ghz signal through my Windows 8.1 desktop. And yes, I downloaded the latest drivers from the ASUS site. While the unit picked up my 2.4 signal, it picked up no 5.0 signals. I know my router is putting out the 5.0Ghz as other equipment is connected to it.

Rod S Johnson, Amazon

  • Summary: I found the product a disappointment not because it doesn't work but because of the rebate process. I thought after filling out a bunch of data online my rebate would be processed but no. After a few weeks I get an e-mail that my rebate is not being processed because I have not mailed in my UPC. If it takes twice the work of a regular rebate what is the purpose.

horrible drivers which makes this useless

I love buying stuff, Amazon
10 September 2014
  • Summary: asus.. cmon now. I've been a faithful customer for years but recently I have been let down when it comes to networking. First, i paid more for asus and this antenna came with really bad drivers/software. good luck finding the 5ghz band with the asus drivers. doesn't even matter if you use netgear or asus routers. it will only pick up on 2.4ghz bands (meaning this is a single band antenna) that's why you bought this antenna right? NO!

Good hardware, terrible software caused crashes every 10 minutes

Gin Yum, Amazon

  • Summary: Asus makes fantastic routers and I've been using them for years. Naturally, I looked to get an ASUS network adapter to go along with my N66u router. Unfortunately, this adapter seems to have terrible software issues and in my case, it caused my computer to crash with the BSOD every 10-30 minutes.

Worked for a month then degraded

Nick D., Amazon
28 August 2012
  • Summary: I bought this with the ASUS RT-N53. At first it worked great, connected quickly to the 5Ghz band. The product is a bit dated at this point so there are no firmware updates (I have checked). After about a month when I'd turn on my computer which is about 6 feet away from the router it would only find the 2.4Ghz network. I could ask it to search for networks and it'd take over 30 minutes to find the 5Ghz network.

Windows 8.1

Jim, Amazon
11 February 2014
  • Summary: This is my second dongle like this and I bought it because it is dual channel. ASUS are a bit slow in releasing a updated driver for windows 8.1 so I am stuck with a single channel device until then. After several emails to Asus support it would appear that they have no plans for a Windows 8.1 update, very disappointed by this.

9 March 2014
  • Excerpt: Очень дорогое устройство, с кривыми драйверами если пытаться работать на 5 Гц больше 3-4 часов, скорость падает, иногда теряет совединение, притом с родным роутером от ASUS N66U. Лучше посмотреть в сторону других более дешевых аналогов.
  • Pros: нет
  • Cons: Завышенная цена для посредственного качества. Драйверы от ASUS первых версий приводили к синему экрану смерти. Последующие версии драйвера через 3-4 часа работы в режиме 5 Гц ухудшают качество соединения, пинг падает с 40 до 500, что в онлайн играх критично. Стандартный драйвер из поставки винды не работает с 5 Гц. Очень большие габариты.

Probleme mit 5Ghz

D.Lukas, Amazon
12 November 2013
  • Summary: Im 2,4Ghz Bereich kann man sagen, dass der Stick eine gute Leistung liefert. Allerdings habe ich unter Windows 7 64Bit das Problem, dass das 5Ghz WLAN der Fritzbox 7390 nicht gefunden wird. Mit Linux Mint (Olivia) 64Bit wurde das WLAN gefunden, eine Verbindung konnte allerdings nicht hergestellt werden. Daher nur 1 Punkt.
