  • Excerpt: Purchased router only to discover that it was defective. According to tech support, I could: a) return the unit, or; b) follow a You Tube Video on how to restore the operating firmware.

Don't buy if you have Mac

  • Excerpt: I didn't even get the router set up. The utility install CD is for PC only. I called tech support, was on hold for 15 minutes and got hung up. Called back and was told I needed to directly connect via ethernet to the router. If you have a newer Mac, there is no ethernet port on the laptop.
  • Cons: Difficult To Set Up

Poor quality & poor service

egfeitzinger, CNET
2 January 2014
  • Summary: It would put itself into rescue model after about an hour, and even with the current firmware wouldn't be able to restart itself. After many hours of frustration, I sent it in for warranty repair with specific instructions that they needed to let it run for a few hours to see the problem.
  • Pros: Fast and feature rich
  • Cons: Infant mortality -- it stopped working after about a month.

Customer technical support is non-existent

  • Summary: I bought this unit in July 2013. It initially had exceeded my expectations. The wireless range covered my house and my driveway, about 65ft distance from router. That was the good news. The bad news started about 3 weeks ago.
  • Pros: Has impressive wireless range and features
  • Cons: Big CON is tech support practically non-existent. There is no CHAT, or telephone support for networking hardware. The configuration software has some basic information functions, but not enough to explain how to configure a specific need. High price

  • Summary: My old Linksys WRT150N router was downstairs, and my family was complaining of poor wireless performance upstairs. Also we were having to reset the old router a lot. I did some research and found that the ASUS RT-AC66U is rated as possibly the best 802.11AC router so far, so I spent the extra money...

If have a Apple setup don't buy this!

  • Excerpt: I bought two of these routers with the intention of replacing my old Apple Airport Extreme and Time Capsule. I read a lot of reviews before making my decision but nowhere did I see that this router does NOT support Apple's Time Machine wireless backups.
  • Pros: Fast, Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection, Secure Connection
  • Cons: Difficult To Set Up, No Time Machine Backups
