Summary: High performace long range router Very good quality both the Router & the DD-WRT Firmware, I was able to set my HMA VPN account in to the router to watch Netflix in my apple TV overseas. Thank you ASUS Thank you DD-WRT team, I ordered it from Chargetastic Store through Amazon, fast and very good packaging.
Summary: I had a DIR-655 back from when they first came out before this unit, and I must say so far this is leaps and bounds better. Beyond the slight nuisance of having the router reboot on many setting changes (which may be able to be fixed in a future firmware upgrade or custom firmware), I can't complain. The range is great on the 2.4Ghz band and acceptable for 5Ghz.
Pros: Fast, Wireless coverage, Easy web interface, Customizable WRT firmware
Cons: Many setting changes require a router restart or an excessive amount of "wait time" to apply
Excerpt: I just signed up for 60 meg internet service and knew my old router would limit me to 300 mbps. After doing extensive research, I ordered the RT-AC68U router and an ac Asus 1200 adapter. The setup was so simple, I kept thinking that I had missed a step and all my devices would not be able to find the new router. All I had to do was name the network and provide a password and that was it.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection, Secure Connection
Excerpt: I use this as a router for 3 computers, 2 phones, an iPad and a television. It handles the traffic well. Set up was fairly easy. The only difficult thing for me was setting up a hard drive on the router. It took some time for my computers to be able to "see" the drives, even though they were there and shown on the router admin control software. Eventually, the computers found the hard drive. Now I use for my back ups to my apple computers.
Excerpt: I bought this to 'future proof' our house, and although I don't have any wireless AC cards at the moment, it did drastically improve my wireless N connections. Before, I'd normally get about 195-217Mbps and now it's consistently 450Mbps. Awesome.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection, Secure Connection, Sexy Looking
Excerpt: Fast router with little dropped wifi issues. The attached storage works well for DLNA if the file sizes are smaller. Do expect a large mkv to play smooth over wifi to your blu-ray, for example. Worth the primo price. Set it up and forget about it. LED shut off light!!!
Summary: I am disappointed with the range of the router my 4 year old router has much better range . The router is placed in the basement of my house my old router I can watch Netflix in my bedroom on the second floor, no buffering unfortunately with this router I sometimes do not even get wi-Fi signal in my bedroom.
Excerpt: Bought this to replace my Asus RT-N56U.Range is about the same at 2.4ghz but better at 5ghz vs my old router.Speed is much improved. I'm getting 500+Mbps download from my 2013 MacPro to my Synology NAS. As a reference, I get 850 Mbps between the two using wired ethernet.This router has all the options you could want and works great with custom firmware.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection
