"Unstable @ 6 months, died @ 9 months; NO TECH SUPPORT"

jmrsad, CNET
17 February 2014
  • Pros: Initially (when it worked) high speed, even when not using AC protocol Good software interface
  • Cons: Wireless became highly unstable, dropping devices and/or not letting them connect, after 6 months. After 9 months, wireless did not work at all. TECH SUPPORT IS WORTHLESS--they do not answer. DO NOT BUY FROM ASUS, WHICH DOES NOT SUPPORT USERS!

Not Mac friendly -Poor Tech support

Magnus, B&H Photo
1 August 2013
  • Excerpt: I have been using this router for over a month. Although it has a bunch of nice features, such as creating different WI-FI networks (i.e. for guests), Cloud storage, FTP, etc.) the router is not fully Mac compatible (regardless of the Apple icon on the box), all software included with router is PC ONLY, so is the CD that comes with it.The Wi-Fi range is very poor and the signal disappears at merely 15 meters (50 ft) from the router.
  • Pros: Cloud Storage, Fast Connection Speed, Ftp Capability
  • Cons: Clumsy Ui, Poor Customer Support, Poor Wi-fi Range, Windows Only Software

I'm just glad it works somewhat

Bob, TigerDirect.com

  • Summary: I could not set this router up using my Windows 8 machine. The WIN 8 firmware would neither open or install and seemed to be still under development Finally, I was able to set up at least the internet connection using a Win 7 laptop wirelessly. I have an internet connection now on my Win8 wired, WIN XP wired, and WIN 7 wireless, and Sony Home Theater wired. They all seem somewhat faster.

"Good coverage, fast speed, defective menuing system."

bradbort, CNET
3 July 2013
  • Pros: Speed and coverage
  • Cons: No matter what browser I used, the menu to control the router would become corrupted. I spoke to tech support. They were clueless. Others have posted about the same issue, so they must have some sort of firmware bug.

Average Performance

Fauzi, B&H Photo
27 August 2012
  • Excerpt: Not so good as I expected. Range is so so. And on 2,4 Ghz speed is quite disappointing. Maybe needs another firmware update. And besides all it is very expensive.
  • Cons: Unreliable

Sub-par signal

P. Patel, Amazon
12 June 2014
  • Summary: I liked this modem when i was reviewing it on Amazon and Internet, but my linksys G modem was better with signals then this N/AC router. The new router is at the same location as the previous G router and signal is terrible. I barely get any signals on the floor above in my house. I have tried the following to boost the signals without adding any repeaters or other bridged wireless routers.

Terrible parental control + customer support

David Dufour, Amazon
9 June 2014
  • Summary: The signal is pretty strong and stable but has trouble reaching the 2nd floor from the basement. I tested the parental control on my 9 years old little brother. It worked well for 30 seconds. That's the time it took him to figure out how to get past it. The parental control works by setting the time frames in which you want that particular computer to have access to the internet.

  • Summary: Måste säga att räckvidden på båda banden var usel! Vet inte om det beror på att de fått ändra mjukvaran pga stämningar men räckvidden var mindre än hälften mot min Dovado Pro. Lämnade tillbaka och köpte en Netgear Nighthawk istället, fungerar mycket bättre.

User Review

  • Excerpt: Прошивка у меня - 3.0.0.4.374.4561. На отдачу - проблем нет, скорость действительно не режется. Это пока все, что удалось протестить.
  • Pros: Качество исполнения, дизайн, надёжность в использовании, не греется.
  • Cons: Режет скорость! Не знаю, почему тут пишут, что модем не режет скорость. У меня в speedtest из 15 замеров скорость выше 21 Mb/s на прием не поднималась. Когда подключаюсь напрямую, без модема, скорость не опускается ниже 30 Mb/s (Потеря скорости составляет около 30%).

  • Summary: Detta är min 4:e router dvs helt novis är jag inte. Den fungerar bra när den fungerar. Tyvärr tappar jag dagligen kontakten med den, både trådat och otrådat. Jag kan inte logga på mig på routern utan omstart och får följande meddelande (trots den senaste firmwaren): "Settings have been updated. Web page will now refresh.Changes have been made to the IP address or port number. You will now be disconnected from RT-AC66U.
