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

jmrsad, CNET
17 February 2014
  • Summary: Don't buy unless you are willing to junk it when it stops working--product became unusable after 6 months and it is impossible to reach their tech support (I have wasted hours trying to reach).
  • 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
  • Summary: Fast but buggy.
  • 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

  • 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

Can't get AC to work and Rubbish Parental controls

N. Dey, Amazon
26 March 2014
  • Summary: I bought this for 2 features 1. Wireless AC: Unfortunately, I can’t get it to work with my devices (Samsung Galaxy S4 or Samsung Galaxy Note 3). I’ve updated the firmware, played around with as many settings as I dare and I have not found anything to make it work. Neither phone can detect the wireless AC. The wireless N is much faster than my old wireless G and I get a strong signal through the house – but I could have got this with a much cheaper router 2.

Ganska dålig

plasthink, Prisjakt
3 October 2014
  • Summary: Lyckades få tag i denna för ett bra pris (1099kr) efter att ha kollat runt bland de senaste ASUS routrarna. Det jag var ute efter var en trådlös router med 5ghz då alla grannar i lägenhetshuset jag bor i kör på 2,4ghz och störningen i luften är enorm. Fick hem routern efter ett par dagar och började meka med den. Ganska snabbt upptäckte jag att 5ghz radion betedde sig märkligt.

  • Excerpt: Я не знаю как тут пишут что данный девайс прекрасно работает, начил с последней прошивки и далее опускался ниже, в итоге как понял либо прошивки кривые либо с ним беда, постоянно отключается WAN ну и инет пропадает, Греется достаточно сильно, вообщем очень разочарован в данном девайсе, до этого был N16 так проблем не было за два года.
  • Pros: Я их не нашел
  • Cons: Постоянно вырубается сеть по WAN инета нет, греется достаточно сильно

Knappt godkänd

junkan, Prisjakt
19 June 2014
  • 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.

  • Excerpt: Ich kann mich den vorherigen Bewertungen nicht anschließen, das liegt wohl vor allem daran, dass ich den Router in anderen Betriebsmodi getestet habe. Und da hat er komplett versagt.Positiv:Er schaut gut aus, ist recht kompakt und hat sehr viele Features. Die Benutzeroberfläche ist bisher die beste die ich bei Routern gesehen habe. Das macht die Konfiguration kinderleicht.
