Summary: I bought this router from a local store about 6 months ago, to replace a Buffalo router with a failed wireless board. I wanted to make sure I got a router that was explicitly supported by DD-WRT, since that is what I was running on my old router, but I decided to give the ASUS firmware a chance first. Configuration was easy enough, but the wireless connection was inconsistent and kept dropping, even though my laptop was 10 feet away.
Summary: I replaced my older, more expensive ASUS Router with this one (the old one suddenly started to drop out, and no imaginable solutions would fix it). My old ASUS router lasted at least 4x as long as any Linksys router I had in the past, so I decided to buy another ASUS one. I never really did use the more advanced features on my RT-N56U so I decided to pick up this cheaper one.
Summary: Pure perfection! Works, doesn’t have Gigabit, but otherwise its the best out of box router and user friendly, we provide to customers all day everyday as a low cost easy to set-up great coverage and speed home/small office router. This also repeats , so it does all in one box, not at the same time, but you should know that. And Its Sleek Looking!
Summary: The range on this is better than the Linksys E900 I have. However, it only has 1 antenna so it's wireless repeating abilities is much weaker than the E900. However, it is also supported by Tomato and DD-WRT which is the main reason I bought it on sale during Boxing week.
Summary: I replaced another brand with this unit because the "unnamed brand" failed and did not produce the speed I needed. I run one wireless system in the house (40' from router) and another in my shop (about 200' from router). I consistently get about 65% reception on the system in my shop which is about double of the "unnamed brand.
Summary: It is a good thing it works because if you need to look anything technical up about it, you're out of luck. The "manual" that comes in the box basically says plug it in. That's it. Literally it says step 1, connect your devices, step 2 open your browser (the auto-setup is supposed to launch), step 3 setup complete Well, the first couple times I started the browser (Firefox) it didn't do anything, so I went to my network places & invoked the router manually, which then...
Summary: Added this router to my in-laws' cable modem which did not include wi-fi. Surprisingly good range, measured with a smartphone signal strength app (WiEye) that has a real-time display. Setup was also straightforward, perhaps not recommended for typical grownups in their 80s, but not complicated. Small size keeps it from being an item of clutter on their computer desk.
