Summary: My Telus Optik TV Actiontec all-in-one modem sucks and delivers very weak signal on 2nd floor from basement. Their support is lame. Bite the bullet and learn from internet. Set up this baby in Access Point mode and work like a charm. Five bar signals and full 16Mbps wi-fi speed on 2nd floor. Telus should really offer a solution like that.
Pros: Key functions of a router - fast, range, substained speed
Ease of use. Excellent product. Good bang for the buck!

Summary: I first installed this at one of my customers. It blew me away. Strong signal. High speed connect rates. And the use of installation. Lemme tell you, a patient in a coma could set this up. It practically installed itself. Actually I first found out about it whilst researching. CNET had a video review of it. The reviewer raved about it. It turns out - he was right!
Summary: The technical Support is very bad. Windows 8 and 7 can not access the router's VPN, but the win XP can. I contact the technical support, the answer is nothing. But the wireless signal is strong.
Summary: This Asus "Dark Knight" router was purchased to replace a Linksys WRT54G. Internet access is through a Motorola Surfboard cable modem. The router connects wirelessly to 2 laptops, 2 tablets, and a printer. There are also 3 desktops (2 Windows machines & an iMac), Ooma VoIP Phone system, Pioneer surround reciever and a Playstation 3, all connected via CAT6 cabling either directly through the router or a Netgear gigabit switch.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection, Secure Connection
Summary: The 5Ghz network wasn't available until after I upgraded the firmware - which is easy to do. Got printing working via the USB port using LPR (the discovery utility did not locate the printer) but despite the router admin page saying it's still connected and the network computers can still see the printer, after some idle time all print jobs fail. Power cycling the router is the only apparent fix. Put the printer back on my home network via Samba and have no problems.
Pros: Excellent range and speed. Setup is a breeze.
Cons: Firmware it ships with is problematic. USB printer keeps getting lost.
Summary: This router has some very nice advanced features and is a high performer. I bought this on sale from another site and feel that the price is in the fair range so price to value on this is not a 5 star. Aside from that, if you need extra range, great features and expandability, this is the router for you. I found the user interface easy to manage and very easy to setup.
Summary: I replaced a Cisco (Linksys) wifi router with this due to speed problems and signal repeatedly dropping out on the A band. Well, signal still repeatedly drops out on the A band. On 7 different computers. And 3 Alfa USB wifi adapters. Still getting lower speeds matching the old router.... I think I spent my money for nothing. This router does have a few nice features in the interface though, and seems easy enough to manage. Doc's are pretty good.
Summary: This is one of the best non-AC routers available in the market. Best for big houses. Unless you're looking at 2/3 routers configuration in a home, this is strongly recommended. Just Google RT-N66U reviews and see for yourself.
Pros: Strong wireless, Best home router in the market
