Best router I ever had Verified OwnerVerified Owner

Pros

Powerful, fast, easy interface,
Cons
None so far
Summary
This router has very good performance and range. It's able to sustain a lot of load without slowing anything down. Its UI is clear, intuitive and yet complete. Very nice work from ASUS!

Experience: 2 Months

Pros

Excellent wireless reception and amazing range (about 100 feet through walls and shrubbery)
Easy to set up
High Throughput
Native support for DD-WRT
Looks totally badass
Mounting holes provide a very firm attachment to a wall
Is a conversation starter
Cons
Too Big (but that's a good thing, isn't it?)
Default firmware is lacking functionality
Default firmware has known vulnerabilities as a VPN endpoint client when using OpenVPN
Antennas are flimsy, and need to be re-positioned occasionally
Summary
Out of the box, it worked as expected.
Setup was very straight-forward and easy.
The size made it impossible to fit on a shelf made for my last router... But mounting it to the wall was very easy and holds VERY well.
On occasion I need to re-adjust the position of the antennas as they are a tad flimsy and tend to fall over time.
Overall it is an amazing router and I would recommend to ANYONE looking for a large (and fast) wireless coverage.

Pros

Pros

PROS

Excellent Range, but it highly depends on the environment.
Dual band is great! I use the normal band for smaller devices that don't need as much speed, and the higher band to stream movies and for gaming.
Great stability! I've used a lot of different Linksys and D-Link routers, this is by far the best router I've ever owned.
Cons
CONS:

Costs an arm and a leg for a router.
A bit large.
Summary
I bought 2 of these already and I don't regret it at all. It may be quite pricey, but if you run a media server, or have a large house, this is definitely the router you need.

Pros

Everything is good
Never drops service
Good easy setup
Cons
Just a tad Pricey
not that this is horrible, just wait and get on a good sale
Summary
Very happy with it so far, has a really nice design, will update  review if needed, otherwise very pleased so far.

Experience: 30 Days

Pros

Very Fast, Strong Signals, like the granular configurations, bandwidth monitor, history, router hardware log, router hardware system status, VPN setup, guest network, etc etc
The multitude of settings and configuration is awesome. It will take some reading for the non IT person, however everything is on google, if you dont know google!
Cons
Guest networks (when setting up multiple guests networks) on 5GHZ has a bug.
Summary
Had initially installed in the crawl space, and was able to receive better than my last cisco ROUTER throughout the house. Needed to have a range of 350 ft, so I moved it up one floor. The multiple granular settings you can set and update  is fabulous. Have been working in the it field for 26yrs, and this is the best that comes comparable to commercial routers in mho.


only cons thus far, which appears to be a bug, is the set up of multiple wireless guest networks for the 5GHZ range, screws up the router access. and does not display the guest networks on 5GHZ properly.

Pros

Great features
no client drop offs
Cons
it is big, but I can deal with it
pricey - great when on sale
Summary
Managed to get this for $230 during black Friday - fantastic unit at that price. Still very good at $300 but not sure if I would have got it.
Have not been able to check the range (ie. out on the deck) but I know the kids are happy within the house - gaming, movies, etc. are more fluid and no drop-offs. CNET reviews were spot on and helped with this purchase.

Cons

Amazing! Router located on 3rd floor townhouse, ground floor opposite side internet speed still at 50m and 11ms ping.
