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.
Summary: I have had this router for nearly a year and so far have been quite satisfied with it. Wifi speeds are excellent, with few dropped connections. USB ports for network storage is a nice feature too. Easy to set up, took less than 10 minutes. The stock firmware is not so great though. Once I put custom firmware on it I had no trouble whatsoever. Overall, well worth the price for a quality router.
Pros: Fast, reliable LAN speeds, good wireless coverage. USB ports for external storage
Summary: As a previous user mentioned, it's best to use custom firmware for this router. I had alot of disconnect issues until i switched to the custom firmware. issue solved and it now works great. The speeds on 5 G are as fast as a wired connection.
Summary: Very easy setup on this router. It walks you through it with a nice UI. Asus has really made wireless networking easy enough that most people can do it themselves. The connection on this router is rock solid and has great coverage to even the furthest corners of my home.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection
Summary: This router is amazing. Fast speeds. Good connectivity. Far wireless range. I don't use the software that comes with it so I can't comment on that. I run my directv, wireless and magic jack through this router with no trouble at all.
Excerpt: I previously owned the D-Link DIR-655, which I liked and never had much trouble with; however, upgrading to the Asus RT-N56U was a great decision - you don't know what you're missing until you get something better. Hands down the best router/AP I've ever worked with - easy to setup and performs...
