Excerpt: This product is smaller than I thought, very slim and the bracket to hold it vertically is more than adequate (I read reviews saying it was flimsy). Setup was a breeze and it performs as advertised. Nothing but accolades, would buy again.
Summary: My 6 year old has a iPad 2 and after the IOS 8 update, the wireless signal performance dropped dramatically. To avoid the ongoing fits that were sure to come, I decided to invest in a new router. I decided on this model from all the online reviews I read. Setup was pretty simple as well as updating the device to the latest firmware. Performance is like night and day.
Asus a product that works well for a resonable price

Summary: This was a great change to the retail router we had in place before. Works great with multiple items on line at once. 2 tvs, 3 phones, ipad, 3 laptops, printer and walk ins have no problem borrowing signal. Works great when installed in a center point of the house. Worked around corners and in areas of the house we had not been able to keep a good signal in before. Was glad we purchased. Would recommend to others.
Excerpt: Dual Band but range is not amazing .. good... just not amazing. Not AC router but Asus had good ratings ... I used this to totally replace FIOS Actiontec ... pretty pleased. I would be thrilled if range had increased...Replaced Home unit with a Nighthawk AC -- more costly but range is amazing with that unit .. well worth the extra price paid vs this unit.
Excerpt: This is the second one on the network. The first one is the router and this one is configured as a repeater. Lose some bandwidth with used as a repeater. Will be running a Cat 5 cable between them so the second one will be used as an access point which will have full bandwidth.
