Excerpt: Have been using the Asus RT-N10P Wireless-N150 Router for about 5 months now as a repeater/range extender to provide wireless service to an outbuilding. It was very easy to set up and has yet to lose its connection to the network when in use.
Summary: I found the ASUS RT-N10P router on sale for $25.99 with free shipping, and couldn't resist. Some of the new Linux firmware builds are now supporting this router so I figured to give it a try. Not having gigabit ports is OK, as my house already has switched gigabit ethernet throughout and the wireless N is quite sufficient for the various mobile devices on my 10Mbps internet connection.
Pros: Solid value. With a little know-how, can be enhanced with upgraded firmware and extra features.
Cons: Basic router hardware, wireless / networking / cpu are not the latest or fastest specs.
Summary: For the price, this is quite a nice router - and I'm comparing it to an ASUS RT-N66U... The speed is not bad at all. I did extensive testing with iperf (simultaneous bidirectional test) to see what this is capable of and in close proximity, it manages 40 Mbps. Coverage does extend throughout my small house and the minimum speed was 11 Mbps at -60 dB RSSI. Slow but usable, even for moderate streaming.
Pros: Good speed, Decent coverage, All the features of the more expensive ASUS routers, Large, high-power external antenna, Runs cool, Understated looks, Can be flashed with Tomato (Shibby), Low cost
Cons: Not a premium router (100 MBit ports, no USB, not dual-band, not MIMO)
Summary: It met my expectations in every way the package came on time and the package was wrap with care and brand new as stated. Also it did its job the instructions are simple just follow the prompts......after 10 minutes you should be in business ! that simple!!
Summary: It is only rated N150, and according to the ratings on the box, at least N600 is recommended for streaming HD. Admittedly, I own a small house, only 1100 square feet, all on the same floor. That qualification withstanding, I can stream HD programming from my Roku3 in 1080P. I can also surf the Web and use WiFi on my phone, tablet and laptop from anywhere in the house and even on my front porch and the deck in the backyard.
Summary: I just got this today, so far it is running great. I got it up and running in about 20-30 minutes total, that's counting unhooking my old router and clearing a spot for this one since it wouldn't fit in the same spot as my old one. It was quite simple to set up too. I just plugged it in, plugged in my ethernet wires, powered it on and opened a browser. It pretty much did everything on it's own after that.
Reliable performance so far with a nifty guest network feature.

Summary: Update August 2014: Router still works very well. Aside from power outages and modem problems, this thing works brilliantly. It doesn't compare to higher end routers, but for how cheap and functional this is, it's very good. Update September 10th: The uptime of my router is now closing in on 40 days straight of up time.
Summary: I paid $24.99 for this just few days ago and it's over $35?! Wow... Very basic wireless-N router but awesome design with four ethernet ports on the back. The antenna is not removable but I do find the external antenna design to work better than the internal. Yes, there's no CD and only a basic manual but if you know basic networking you'll figure it out without a manual.
Summary: This is an almost idiot proof router to set up. The setup does not require any software and the router doesn't come with any. The instruction sheet is essentially one page, but no more is needed for a basic setup. However,you will need two cat-5 cables. The router comes with a chintzy 3 foot cable, but you may find it too short. One cable goes from your modem to the WAN port of the router, and the other from a router LAN port to your computer.
