  • Summary: So I got this router few years ago (about 3 1/2 years) to install DD-WRT or Tomato on it. I tried both firmwares and decided to stick with Tomato. I never ran on the stock Asus firmware, so I can't comment on it. However, I will not comment on how good the open source firmwares are, but you should give them a go. The specs of this router are very good. With 128MB of RAM, 500MHZ of CPU and a 32MB Flash, you can have a lot of stuff running on this firmware.
  • Pros: Tomato/DD-WRT support, Very good specs (500MHZ, 128MB RAM, 32MB Flash), All Gigabit
  • Cons: Power supply is cheap

Overall, this is good product for the price you pay (around $60 to $100).

  • Summary: I purchased this product because it was already flashed with DD-WRT software at a reasonable price even though it is loaded in specs & features. It was easy to install & setup to work with Hide My Ass Free web proxy / VPN. It has been running for two weeks without any glitches except for one time I lost my VPN connection & had t reboot to get it to work.

  • Summary: Overall I like this router. Easy configuration and you can set up two seperate WiFi network on this router : your own where your computers and other personal device can connect to and another you can use for your friends and others guests when they pop in and that second guest network only allow internet access. Your computers and shared data are protected if accessed by the guest network. Each has their own SSID and password.
  • Pros: - DD-WRT available for this router, - Realtime connection monitoring, - Good factory firmware interface, - 2x USB for storage or printer, - Main WiFi network + Guest WiFi network (each having seperate SSID and password)
  • Cons: - Issue tracking internet usage (latest ASUS firmware issue?)

Terrible Router, worse support

  • Pros: While it worked it was an ok router
  • Cons: So after my WAN port died and i went through a VERY lengthy RMA process with ASUS and received a "new" replacement it also died after only ~1 month. Same issue as before, dead WAN port. Tried everything, flashing to factory settings, using the cd recovery tool, WAN port is dead, which makes this router a paperweight. Dont even want to deal with ASUS again to get it replaced. Seriously pass on this router...there are a lot of people having issues with their WAN port dy...

  • Summary: I bought this router because it has a lot of ram, is dd-wrt capable (as well as tomato capable, etc.), and has 2 usb 2.0 ports. I installed the Tomato Firmware (the teddy_bear version with USB support) on this router with relative ease. So far, I have attached 1 external hard drive to the router and used it as a network drive; it works really well. From my brief use of the Asus firmware on routher, I found it lacking a lot of features as well as ugly.
  • Pros: - Capable of having 3rd party firmware (DD-WRT, Tomato), - USB ports, - lots of RAM, - Can somewhat stand upright without a stand
  • Cons: - Crappy stock firmware, - Bright LEDs that shine through the vent grates, - Thick and big compared to other routers, - Doesn't come with and upright stand
