Pros
Easy to use, reliable
Cons
lack USB ports
Summary
Good affordable router in the market.
Lack of USB ports for supporting NAS. Also only supporting up to N standard may not be adequate for PRO users.

Pros
Small form factor, 2 antenas, good price for functions offered
Cons
Firmware unstable
Summary
Bought 2 of these in 2012. Have been struggling to make them operate stable. 5GHz band always became unstable and required a power cycle to restore the functions of the router. After going through 6 firmware upgrades, I put the Tomato open firmware, and that made the router very stable. For $50, you get a dual band, dual antena, 11n wireless router, and that's not bad.

Pros
Smart looking device, small and compact,cool status LEDs, simple installation, doesn't install junk software on your PC.
Cons
Not stable.
Summary
Device freezes and needs to be power cycled once or twice a day. Replaced once with same model. The second device failed with the same problems. I got a different brand the third time.
Could have been a really great product with its feature set and looks. Too bad there's something not right on the inside that makes it crash.
NCIX was good about the exchange.

Pros
small, easy to use, nice interface
Cons
cannot find a way to use the VPN im paying for
Summary
so used to the linksys routers that it shard to find my way around but overall the interface is so much nicer. The router itself is not the prettiest girl at the dance but still doesnt look cheap. its very small and seems well built. I wouldnt say as much about the stand which i was afraid i would break when trying to put them together.
setup was very easy, speeds are good. i didnt do any specific tests but did not notice a better connection in my house. the xbox in the livingroom and our cellphones seems to connect faster though. Sadly though the modem isnt supported by many VPN such as Unblock.us which i was already using. still trying to find an alternative thats gonna work.

Pros
low price, multiple SSID
Cons
buggy firmware
Summary
Hard to find a dual band router with multiple SSID support but it comes in the form of multiple guest network. And the firmware is still buggy (Dec 2013). Interface is pretty nice and provide with good info.

Pros
good design and LED lights.
good GUI when update  to the latest firmware.
Cons
the 5G wifi is not stable. my playbook and touchpad sometimes have problems when trying connect.
the DHCP service is not working sometimes. I have to setup IP and gate information manually to connect.
the 100 Mbps lan ports is the worst points. how could the 300Mbp WIFI work with the low bandwidth lan/wan?
Summary
this router could support DD-WRT firmware that very stable for long time running. but the LED will turn off under DD-WRT. and the 5G will down then too.

Pros
Easy set up
Cons
Unreliable, requires a reset every 2-4 days
Summary
I have been very disappointed with this router. It drops the wi-fi signal every 2-4 days, randomly, and requires a reset. I have tried multiple ways to fix the problem, and none have worked as a permanent solution. After some looking online, it appears I am not the only one with this problem. I have tested my devices (phone, laptop) on my old, ancient router, as well as at work and friends houses, and both work fine. It is very clearly the router.
I was particularly disappointed because I am a fan of Asus and have never had a problem with any of their products.
While I can make the router work (with a bi-weekly reset), I would certainly advise anyone against buying it, and would never purchase it again.

*I have only given this 3 stars because it 2 stars requires my order ID, and apparently the one on my NCIX receipt isn't working.

Pros
Stable, never drop  connection once setup properly.
Wireless signal is reasonably strong.
Nice design overall.
QoS works well.
Cons
The initial firmware (before firmware upgrade) were slow on saving setting changes and restarting service, and drops connection when saving setting changes. Updating the firmware solves the problems.
Summary
update  the firmware makes it so much easier to work with. The settings page are intuitive. Have all the standard settings for normal use.

Pros
Decent hardware
Cons
Bad firmware, not stable
Summary
I am used to buying Asus routers in the past that have performed well for the given price. This model has proved to be nothing but a problem from the start. Ordered about 3 of them and only 1 is working satisfactory. The other 2 will take configuration and seem to work fine, but as soon you power cycle the unit it goes into firmware restore mode and will not come back to life until the firmware file is uploaded.

Tried loading older firmware but same deal. Asus support isn't very helpful and just tells me to RMA.
