  • Conclusion: Two aspects are important with the ASUS RT-AC66U. First, how does it compare to other ac-routers? The ASUS router did clearly perform better than the Buffalo and Netgear routers. And secondly, should you get an 802.11ac instead of an 802.11n? Our current favorite n-router is the ASUS RT-N66U.
