Summary: I finally found a reliable router. Prior to this, I was using a Cisco that kept dropping my web connection so I decided to spend the extra money on the Asus and it has definitely been worth it. It literally hasn't had one single issue since I hooked it up the first day.
Excerpt: The router was fairly easy to set up, and allows for guest accounts, which is a feature that we like and use frequently. Purchased this as a replacement for an old, Pre-N Belkin, because more range was needed. Unfortunately, while better than the old Belkin, it is not much better range-wise.
Excerpt: I use this router in a Win 7 Pro 64x-based system with two ethernet desktops, one ethernet WD TV Live streaming device, and two wireless laptops. Setup was relatively fast and painless. There were no issues with any of my devices.
Excerpt: I use this router to stream Netflix and surf the internet. It was very easy to set up and dual band is nice for when multiple people are using the internet at the same time. I have no complaints currently and have been using it for about two months now.
Summary: I have no idea why anyone would buy this junk. I got it and it's one of the most disappointing purchases of the year. at the time of purchase the asus customer service informed me that there was no windows 8 support or drivers. geeez. steer clear of this thing. maybe it's good for a mac.
Excerpt: I finally had to Update my 8 year old Linksys Router because of intermittent signals.. This one is GREAT! No More Cutting out and it's very fast.. It Also Improved my Internet Connection Speed!
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Highly Compatible, Secure
