Epic fail

ceo_mr_man, Ebay
1 March 2011
  • Summary: SIX hours of screwing around with this thing and I still don't know for sure if it was DOA or just a piece of crap. I've set up many networks in the past and I know how to set IPs and SSIDs and all that basic stuff. It's not that complicated. Well, this thing just wouldn't see my cable modem for anything. I called my ISP and I updated the firmware and rebooted everything in a dozen different orders and this router was totally uncooperative.

Stay Away

  • Summary: As the original firmware had all the features, even if it was slow to save any setting changes, I did not change to dd-wrt. After about a month use, I tried wireless connection and I could not connect, no matter what settings I use. Changing to dd-wrt did not help. Asus customer service, without any investigation, blamed the client PC and issued an RMA. As many people are having good experience and a few are having bad experience, quality control is in question.
  • Pros: Good as Wired Router. Good firmware. Good looks.
  • Cons: Wireless is completely broken

Check your provider first...

  • Summary: For the price and feature set this router looks good on paper. The flaws - setup is ridiculous and contacting customer service is a waste of time. They couldn't tell me where to find the PPPOE settings in their own setup program! Could not secure the router with QWest DSL service - which uses PPPOA. I'm pretty frustrated with the whole thing. My Netgear RangeMax G router went in with less than 7 clicks of "Next" and the entry of my WAP-2 security entry.
  • Pros: Lots of features

  • Summary: Connnected an HP Deskjet 1280 printer to its USB port for print server function. Printer detection is a hit and miss. This is a recently bought Wireless N Router unit. Have encountered printer detection problem on 3 separate occassions already. Every time I have to reset the router to factory default. Then and only then will the HP Printer be detected again (on the Network Map). But then I have to set up everything again on this router. A really unreliable unit.
  • Pros: A lot of features, although haven't tested all of them yet.
  • Cons: Print server function is very erratic

  • Summary: Fungerade dåligt. Tappade kontakten minst en gång per dag och var tvungen att göras strömlös för att fungera igen. Den sänkte dessutom resten av nätet också; min andra trådlösa accesspunkt så varken den eller den fasta linan funkade. Prövade ha den i annat nät också, ha den som antingen router eller accesspunkt, koppla i antingen wan eller lan, men inget fungerade.

Geld- und Zeitverschwendung Asus RT-N13U

JBee, Dooyoo
31 October 2010
  • Conclusion: Mein nächster Router heisst sicher nicht ASUS!
  • Pros: in der Preisklasse ausgewogene Leistung, kostenlose DynDNS von ASUS, AP/Repeater/Router-Modus
  • Cons: langsame Web-Konfiguration, grundlegende Funktionsmängel, dadurch unberechenbar und unzuverlässig

absolut unzufrieden

Wolfgang Birgit Schwaigerlehner, Amazon
27 February 2010
  • Summary: Hallo Ich habe den Router jetzt ca. 1 Monat. Er ist für normale Anwender (kein Experte) absolut nicht einstellbar. Das einzige das ich ohne Hilfe hinbekommen habe ist das mein Drucker funktioniert. Alles weitere habe ich trotz ständigem e-mail Verkehr mit der Fa. Asus nicht zum laufen gebracht.
