Summary: Worked really well as an extender. It did the job when few others did. I just wish they had one in Wireless 802.11ac. I ran my extender wirelessly and hid the SSID so the hosts didn't really see different AP's. I used an RT-AC68U and had the AP roaming mode setup to drop at 70 dB.
Summary: After 2 weeks of use I have one word that sums up my opinion about the ASUS EA-N66 (N900 Version)...Wow!! I have struggled to get connectivity in a corner room of my house where I intend to use an xbox 360 as a media extender.
Summary: a budget unit which failed miserably. If you're sucessful in tracking me down you can have the 2 of these that I bought, brand new for free. Bought to run as Access Points. The configuration screen is a bit confusing as the default is to use these as routers.
Summary: it works great for me as a range extender for my 5ghz band, it only does one or the other not dual band at the same time. but i have no issues with it, steady connection and boosted the wifi strength of my 5ghz band threw the whole house, no more low signal always full bars now all over my house...
Excerpt: Plugged it in and I had it working in 3 minutes - it seemed to know what I wanted to do - use it as a Bridge and link it to a switch for multiple connections In comparison with configuring a router this was a breeze
Summary: I have an ASUS RT-AC66U Dual-Band Wireless-AC1750 Gigabit Router in my office (upstairs far left of the house) and I was having occasional issues with a weak signal in my family room (downstairs far right and about 95' away).
Great repeater but only if you give it a different SSID!

Summary: I totally agree with Michael McCormack and want to thank him for his review. I was a little concerned about purchasing this product after the large number of mixed reviews. But I decided to go ahead and try it as I already owned an ASUS AC Wireless Router.
Needs two power cycles to work as an AP if all networking equipment are turned on at the same time

Summary: I bought the EA-N66 to use as a wireless Access Point (AP). As an AP it works except for one very annoying problem described below. After installing the latest "k" firmware from Asus' support site, there remains one problem with the EA-N66 that does not exist with an older AP (an 802.11G Linksys...
Summary: Oh, boy... The reason I got this was my previous wireless adapter (TRENDNET TEW-684UB) was USB-based. It was working fine, until I started wanting to perform scheduled backup/restore operations to/from my NAS using Macrium Reflect and its WinPE-based recovery solution.
