Summary: excellent router. So many routers these days are coming without a built in modem meaning that you have to have two bits of kit rather than one when connecting to a BT line. This has a good modem built in. The wi-fi is the strongest I have had from any other router and reaches the whole of my bungalow - previously needed a repeater for the furthest rooms.
Summary: I found this to be an excellent piece of kit. The look and feel are good, very easy to set up, the web interface is excellent and easily understandable (although I am fairly IT literate). My only disappointment is the range isn't as good as I was expecting, I was hoping it would stretch further around my house than it does, it only stretches a few feet further than the cheap modem I received from my ISP.
Summary: Happy with this. Great spec but I don't use all of it, including the second band (as yet). Very easy to set up and unlike my previous router you do it connected to the Internet. Was hoping to plug in a printer and external hard drive but my printer is not listed as supported on the router and I haven't had time to work out how to do the hard drive. Support from Asus by email but I am not that clever with IT stuff.
Summary: bought it to upgrade from our BT home hub 3 which couldn't handle all of wireless devices. read some reviews and got the impression this was a good router to handle multiple wireless devices. with its dual band and dual processor i thought i'd give it a try. and fair play it did improve the signal strength upstairs and gave better streaming for the ipad while 2 wireless xboxes in the house were gaming online.
Summary: My requirements for a new router for a small (10 person) office were quite simple; - Integrated ADSL modem - PPTP VPN server (mimimum of 5 connections) - Support USB hard disk with windows file share support I was amazed at how hard it was to find a router that met these seemingly simple requirements. The ASUS DSL-N55U Annex A looked like the only feasible option (Annex B is the IDSN version).
Summary: Was really excited to get this item, though was sad that no reviews or tests were available to read prior to purchase so was a big leap of faith. The router looks awesome in a cabon fibre like finish and the lights are blue which looks kool but it is difficult to see these at a distance to trouble-shoot. The guide implied that this router would be a breeze to set-up, how wrong it was.
Very good WiFi performance. ADSL 2+ stability fixed by new firmware.

Summary: A lot of wireless routers sold in the UK don't have the ability to connect up to an ADSL service (internet over a copper telephone wire). That's fine if you have cable, or if you already have an ADSL modem to plug your router into. For simplicity though, if you have ADSL, you probably want an ADSL-capable wireless router like this one. I have, however, had some stability problems with this router on my ADSL2+ line.
Excellent product though interface could be better.

Summary: Bought this to replace an old Belkin N Modem/Router which started dropping my internet connection every couple of hours. Once I got this up and running it has been rock solid since day 1 however to me the interface is not intuitive as you have to search through too many sections to try and find what you are looking for and the set up instructions are also lacking.
