Router cannot consistently work well

Ron Cohen, Amazon
20 July 2015
  • 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.

Won't stream Netflix consistently and ASUS doesn't seem to know how to fix it!!

Lawrence R. Stevens, Amazon
7 March 2015
  • Summary: First off, I really wanted this router to work for us. It has great options and is very configurable. I also am not a novice in this area. One of the main uses in our household for our network is streaming Netflix.

2, 4 Ghz does not work on the unit ...

Eric M. Weaver "Big Cheese", Amazon
5 February 2015
  • Summary: 2,4 Ghz does not work on the unit I purchased. Looking at other reviews, this appears to be a common problem. I returned the unit, and I will be unlikely to buy another ASUS router.

Should be so much better.

John, Amazon
24 December 2014
  • Summary: This device should be awesome, but suffers from a serious defect that causes the 2.4GHz band to be nearly useless. Out of the box, the 2.4GHz was unbelievable slow. Pings were in the 300+ms range to the router, and throughput was less that 0.5mb/s.

$100 of sleek black dissapointment

David Orsi, Amazon
30 October 2014
  • Summary: I had high hopes for this and all it did was let me down. Someone I know has an ASUS router and he loves it. Based on the number of 5-star reviews opted to disregard all of the 1-star reviews... that was a mistake. This router did exactly what the majority of the 1-star reviews claimed.

I am afraid that Asus has down something bad with their ac implementation

R. Reaves, Amazon
17 October 2014
  • Summary: Doesn't work well with Macs at all. Even if you think it works well with your Mac I would open up Wireshark and inspect the packets first. There are many lost packets and as a result many packets become duplicated.

Hardware is flawed, avoid at all costs!

LOLFWD, Amazon
29 September 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this router from a local retailer, but wanted to put one here to warn people NOT to buy this router. I loved the design of this router, it saves so much space! However that is where my love ends. I had nothing but problems with this router from the get go on the 2.4GHz band.

Worked solid for about a month.

Lawrence S. Sinanan "You get what you pay for", Amazon
22 June 2014
  • Summary: I was blown out of the water how fast this thing was. AC is a huge jump over N especially on 5GHz. Range is good (not great) as people make ASUS routers out to be but worked better than anything I had before.

Router fails after 1.5 months, multiple customer support channels fail to provide resolution

Kate, Amazon
21 June 2014
  • Summary: My router failed after 1.5 months: the power light kept blinking and it would not accept connections. I tried to reach customer support in multiple ways: Their online form would not populate a drop-down menu, and would not allow submission without a selection in that menu...in 2 different browsers.
