Excerpt: this router was sooooooo much trouble... constantly dropping the connection and required rebooting - i had to reboot it on a daily basis and sometimes several times a day - when working, the range and speed was fantastic - i had a laptop and my phone on the 5ghz band and one tablet on the 2.4ghz...
Summary: Have been using this close to a year now and an upgrade from my old 2009 Netgear router, and very happy with it. + Great range + Strong signal + Good user controls for router configuration - Router interface is a bit clunky and "loud," not intuitive and takes me some time to figure out how to do...

What was Asus thinking releasing this on the market?

Summary: By bad luck I purchased this excuse of a product. Right of the start the web interface of the router very often just does not want to load a page, so you have to click refresh like a retard. It takes forever to change some option.
Summary: This product does NOT meet requirements for *******/******* *high tier** broadband speeds. Ping rate was about 26, when our prior netgear router was in the 80s. We should be seeing rates higher than the Netgear and we had hoped this would be better, based on the reviews and the mfg...
Summary: WORTHLESS! When I called ASUS to try after sending it in to be repaired and the router would continue to drop the signal, the customer service tech just made fun of me. He told me to hire a ghost hunter to see if he could find any strange energies in my house that could be dropping my wireless.
