Excerpt: I purchased two of these routers. Out of the box, both suggested a firmware update. One worked fine, but the other router froze during the update and went into "rescue" mode (on/off light slowly blinking). After four hours of web searching and trying various reset combinations to no avail, I returned the unit.
Excerpt: I bought this router and attempted the setup yesterday. The "Quick" set up wizard will hardly even function. Tried on 3 different computers, without firewall and antivirus, different browsers...the web pages just hang forever. Repeated refreshing will sometimes show a partial page and, on the rare occasion, the whole page. Email to ASUS support resulted in suggesting a hard reset. Really?...like I wouldn't try that??<br /><br />Not very happy so far...
Summary: I don't understand why an all-singing all-dancing product like this is offered for sale when the specification makes no mention that I can see of IPv6 support. Does it support IPv6? If not it's already obsolete. The last blocks of IPv4 addresses were assigned months ago. Would I buy one? Absolutely not!
Excerpt: Unpacked the router, finished initial setup. The router was working great and then all of a sudden it just died for no apparent reason. The power supply has a blue light on it when it's plugged in, but when you plug that into the router (even with the router's on/off switch in the 'off' position), the blue light goes out.
Cons: Gave it 1 egg because the 30 watt power adapter failed on me after 1 and a half months after buying. Contacted Asus support who told me my only option of getting the issue fixed was to buy the $39.99 power adapter from their e-store which has been "Out of Stock" for months. So, there's that.
