Good router, but lack of external antenna hurting its prospects

DaOneEnOnly, Amazon
6 June 2015
  • 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.

Good router, good price but wait there is more...

  • Summary: A potentially very good home wi-fi router for the home and home office. DHCP and IP address mapping, MAC filtering, etc. Also allows for secure local administration through SSL. Now I get to the what is wrong - the latest ASUS firmware update rendered the device unmanageable.

Stay away if using N devices at 2.4 ghz band

  • Summary: Works good on the 5ghz band, but the 2.4ghz is disappointing for devices that limited to wireless N standard. Using the 2.4ghz band, it normally connects at 5mps....VERY DISAPPOINTING !!

Pretty good

  • Excerpt: This router works as it should, the self installing software is impressive, I never touched the disk, just connected the cables. There are myriad tools in the control panel that I have not investigated, and USB 2 & 3 inputs I have not yet used. The range is not amazing, probably 100 feet.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection, Secure Connection
  • Cons: Unimpressive Range

Great 5GHz speed but 2.4GHz is seriously flawed

Joe User, Amazon
17 December 2013
  • Summary: Pros: + great 5GHz wireless speed + same SOC as the ac68u (currently the best CPU ASUS uses is in this model, which in theory should be internally faster than the lesser CPU used in the slightly more expensive and higher end AC66u) + VPN and dual WAN features, all the more advanced features of the...
