Summary: This was easy to set up. After reading other reviews that said to follow the directions carefully we opted to go step by step. Everything synced up right away with no problems. We have this in our office on the 2nd floor and get great reception downstairs. Good product.
Pros: It's a good router, and based on the hardware, I'd highly recommend it. Mine was bought as a Black Friday 2012 item and has been pretty solid for well over a year.
Cons: The firmware has a critical vulnerability that allows anybody with an internet connection to hack into attached USB drives. Look up an Arstechnica article titled: "Dear Asus router user: You’ve been pwned, thanks to easily exploited flaw" for more info. Firmware below 30043744422 has this vulnerability.
