"Awesome router with amazing router management features!"
15 March 2014
Pros: - Sleek, sophisticated look - Packed full of features - Ultra stable - Perfect for FTP - Access to ASUS free DDNS for life! - Access to ASUS AiCloud and USB Apps - Legendary Signal Strength - No downtime - Easy to use and setup - Easy to update
Cons: - Routers "block user" feature is dodgy (unsure about new firmware, the bug was present on - New updates can occasionally break USB drive detection (can be fixed with reset to factory settings)
Fast, Stable, Capable. For the money, nothing else even comes close.

Summary: If you are looking for a robust, speedy, and feature-rich router which doesn't cost a lot, this is it. I use two of these, one for home and one for a church network I manage. I use the one on the church network to run DHCP for over 100 devices as well as run an FTP drive, 10 other access points and switches, and 3 network printers. It gives me all of the control and visibility I need to manage my network.
Cons: English translation in the setup menu is a little awkward at time, but still manageable. I haven't updated the firmware since the first set up, so I don't know if (any) updates have fixed this or not.
Summary: This is a great little router, runs very well on a standard setup and is easily configurable. Issues come up though if you wish to use it a little differently. I had to get custom firmware to be able to set-up my second unit since Access point wireless link connection only supports Opensystem/None or Opensystem/WEP only.
Pros: Very good router, hardware is top notch and reliable.
Cons: Firmware is somewhat limited, runs a little hot
Summary: I bought this router because I needed something faster than what I had since my new wifi printer was very slow. Unfortunately, the new router didn't solve my printer problem but internet is a little faster now. I had to spend about an hour getting it set up with a customer service rep. The router was set improperly.
