Excerpt: After converting my Xfinity gateway to bridge mode and installing the AC1200, I finally started achieving advertised Comcast speeds and great range. Install was quite easy and I was up and running within half an hour of receipt.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection, Secure Connection
Summary: Took a chance on a used unit. According to a lot of reviews on the net the AC56 has severe range/speed/disconnect issues on the 2.4GHz band. I had mild concerns but the router I received was fortunately not a lemon and has been working flawlessly on both 2.4/5GHz bands both on the stock firmware...
Summary: This router will work fine for a while and then slow down to about 1/10th of its normal speed. Turning it off and on a number of times usually gets it working again, but it will eventually just slow down again.
Good router, but lack of external antenna hurting its prospects

Summary: Router looks great. The web interface is easy to use, but full featured. Wireless speed is good. Wireless range was spotty for me. I was not able to consistently get a good enough signal to a 2.4 wireless N device (Xbox 360) through 1 wall and down 1 floor.
Summary: Would not connect to network . Yes I have connected many routers , and modems this was ridiculous . After 30 minutes on my own I called the Asus company From inside the box and after 2 hours His suggestion was return it (which I did ) This is not a plug and play ?
Good 2.4GHZ WiFi strengh, but poor USB2.0 port printer connection (EPSON WF-2651)

Summary: Advantage: able to fine tune the WiFi strength. I even low down the 2.4GHz WiFi strength to 1%, and WiFi works well in my living room while I do not need to worry WiFi-related health issue in my bed room. The WiFi connection speed with my Android phone is fast.
Summary: I've had this router for six months, and I'm finally giving up on it and going out to buy a new one. I have had problems with intermittent disconnects with this router. It can be fine for days, then it seems when I most need reliability, it will drop six times in 8 hours (I work from home.
Best router in the market for the price if speed and reliability are important to you

Summary: Bought this product almost a year ago. The product is great and the firmware truly gets a lot of upgrades. It's almost like getting a free upgrade to a newer version consider all the features they add.
Summary: The cost is a bit high just to have the DD-WRT software installed, I should have done it myself instead I was lazy :-) However, the fact that I can have this permanently connected to a VPN means that I can watch movies etc. outside of the USA, and that is a great bonus.
