Summary: This replaced my 7 year old D-link router. Router located in the basement in a 3 story house. Range is pretty horrible. My old D-link could at least muster 1 bar of reception. I get nothing with the Asus on the top floor. I have Trendnet range extender and it's marginally better, but if I didnt have the range extender I wouldn't buy this router. I got it cheap so it is to be expected.
Summary: bought 5 of these for my home, work and for a friend. One was in extender mode, 4 were used as access points. 4 of the devices had various issues doing what they were supposed to (even after firmware update). Extender would drop in and out (despite almost 80% signal strength where it was positioned), access points had various issues, including some wireless devices constantly drop ping the connection, as well as one causing VERY high ping rates throughout the network...
Pros: Cheap, shape optimal to use as a door stop now.
Summary: I bought this to use as an AP on a network, as my current router simply cannot deliver wifi in the whole house in it's current position (between 4 brick walls, unable to move it for various reasons) While I can use the AP mode of this router, I lose almost every features with it, including Speed Throttling for every devices connected to this router, which I require(I don't use wifi, the leechers do and I'm not about to give them full speed), yet when I leave it to Router...
Summary: Bought this modem to replace the dead D-lnk router at a housesit. Owner doesn't demand much and the house is small so it works quite well - located in a boiler room in the bottom floor, the signal seems to reach throughout the small house quite well. No crashes after a week and it has GBs of data downloaded through it without any ill effect.
Pros: Very good range in small 2 storey house, easy and quick to configure
Summary: Using this as a access point to extend my wireless coverage at home. I could not move the location of my main wireless router due to requiring having to relocate a whole mess of cables, I decided to just use this as a switch/access point at the wifi deadspot It was the most reasonable solution I could find, better than other stand-alone range extenders I have tried previously ($/performance).
