Summary: This router has exceeded all my expectations from increased speeds (dsl connection through charterY h), ease of integration into an existing home wireless network, & operation. We are a connected family of 5, and the N53 handles our requirements with ease. Additionally, its aesthetics by far surpass any other's. Lastly, I got it for a great deal on ebay! Winner, winner, chicken dinner!
Excerpt: This wireless router is perfect for my needs. I own a small home business, and use the router to connect my two laptops to the internet. I get a very strong signal from the next room, and everything is running very smoothly. I really like that it is small and compact, I can keep it in a closet out of sight.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Fast Connection Speed, Nice design, Reliable connection, Secure Connection
Summary: Great N router, but I have had a lot of problems with intermittent connectivity issues. After resetting the router almost always continues to provide the great wifi service. Very little latency when on wireless compared to the LAN as well. The QOS and MAC filtering is great, but I wish you could customize the MAC's that are yours. Mac address are lengthy and is two of my MAC's are nearly identical. All in all a great router.
Summary: This router replaced an old D-Link. I'm a month or two in and so far I haven't had to re-boot, even during long Skype calls, although it has a convenient reset button. It also seems to work very well with my smart TV, which my old router would drop quite regularly. Set-up was easy, appearance is pleasing and performance is great so far. Hard to ask for more in a $50 something router (less with rebate).
A great dual port router. This is what you expect from asus.

Summary: This router does exactly what I wanted it for. I have desktop pc and my wife has a tablet with Wi-Fi. With my old router when she was online I had no speed on mine. This dual port router was the answer. Now we both can enjoy the internet.
Summary: I have returned this product to Amazon for a replacement within the first month because of issues with the 5g signal disappearing. Asus then RMA'd it now 3 times over the past 8 months. I have since purchased another brand router that has the same features but actually works. I can't get my money back so I have been determined to get it to work. Also beware that the WAN and other Ethernet ports are not gigabit on this unit.
