Summary: I replaced what I thought was a bad router with the ASUS RT-N66U. When it started having similar problems (intermittent dropout and slow wireless), I was really ticked. I surfed the net looking for answers as to why my wireless was so slow, and did everything I could find to help the problem to no avail. I assumed I had a problem with my laptops (my Android phone worked well with the router), so I didn't think ASUS could help me. But they did.
Summary: My computer is about 200 feet away from the router. Asus RT-N66U Dual-Band Wirelles-N900 Gigabit Router works great for me. I used three other brand wireless routers. None of them worked stable. The signal lost frequently. Also, the signal was weak. I installed this Asus RT-N66U route yesterday and I used it all day long today. The signal was stronger and it did not lost even once. I like this router very much.
Summary: I went to put the router in and for the first time was great then it went down...I had to call my son-inlaw over to fix it and it took him an hour and a half to get this router up and going again. I don't think this router is for the average person.
