Summary: We are a digital household with many wireless devices (actually 15 devices). We need a fast and powerful WIFI that can handle the load. Our home is large and as a result we also use a 2.4 GHz Access Point. Between the two devices we have full power over more than one acre of land around our home and even much further in some areas. I love the dual band WIFI of the ASUS RT-N56U. We use select devices on the 5 GHz band for faster data transfer.
Summary: Rock solid performance router for anybody in need of a router that doesn't cost an arm and a leg that offer great performance. 4 Gpbs ports for you wired needs and a dual band wifi interface to handle anything you want!
Pros: - Rock solid performance, - Easy setup, - Handle a lot of concurrent request / simultanous clients, - Dual band, - Get Merlin's build firmware if you want extended features set.
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.
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: 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.
