  • Summary: Stock firmware is a no go for me. DD-WRT make it bearable. Connection drops sometime, but not too often (might be the Linksys router, but not sure) and a power cycle cleans it up. I'm running a printer with this and that is working very well. The range could be better though.
  • Pros: Small size, USB port, DD-WRT compatible
  • Cons: Somewhat reliable, OK range

Would have been better staying with my existing router.

  • Summary: Easy Setup. However the range appears to be less than the G series Linksys router I replaced. Also, my Brother printer will print using the print server, but it has some garble across the page making this feature unusable.

  • Summary: Bought this router last year to replace a dying D-Link router that was driving me insane. Well, this router wasn't much better. The firmware available when I got it was extremely finnicky. When I first hooked it up, everything was fine and dandy. Change any setting, no matter how trivial, and suddenly it claims it can no longer connect to the internet.
  • Pros: Looks nice, DD-WRT supports this device(non-B1 version)
  • Cons: Awful support from Asus, Unstable firmware out of the box

decent router, great price

Luc, Mwave.com

  • Summary: if you are not looking for wireless print server and other extras, this router serves well. The price after rebate is great, however, switching from a very stable obscure Trendnet wireless g router, I am not impressed with this Asus as my expectations were a lot higher...
  • Pros: strong signal, meets basic router requirements, great aesthetics
  • Cons: if you get the print server to work, you are lucky, if you get it to remain available at all times, you are very lucky. I have to reset it every 2-4 weeks as it looses the connection. The N feature is somewhat deceptive since it uses only the 2.4GHz frequency. Due to all these problems, I have not even tried the download feature, etc. Also, no external antenna, so if you need to upgrade the antenna, you are out of luck

SO SO

  • Summary: This device will probably be really good with DD-WRT installed, but I havent tried it yet. Of course DD-WRT can be a bit daunting if you havent used it before.
  • Pros: Inexpensive router / repeater / AP with USB. Works reasonably well as a router and AP. It can work with a USB hub connecting a drive and printer. However, need to turn the printer on last or it wont be accessible.
  • Cons: Id rather see a bridge function instead of repeater. For the price, this device would be great to just connect a drive or printer wirelessly to the network. And you can do it in repeater mode. However, this will also relay your wireless connections, thereby slowing them down compared to if they connected directly to controlling router or AP. Ive also run into a few issues in the repeater mode. Under older firmware, this device would take over as the DNS server even th...

Doesnt work with 64bit

John, Mwave.com
26 May 2010
  • Summary: Great N router for price.
  • Pros: Good software on router, works well with 32bit operating systems.
  • Cons: Does not work with 64bit OS. I bought to use the usb as a print server and it works well with all my XP machines. My one WIN 7 64bit OS will not print using this router.
