I bought one of these from ABT. I live real close but they offered to ship free so, I took them up on it. Super fast shipping. Easy setup for both network and wi-fi. Failed in 2 days. After testing cables, resetting, running ASUS utilities and not getting it to work again, I called ABT and they said bring her in for a new one, which I did, and the new one works great. I bought the ASUS on the recommendation of a friend that works for Microsoft in IT. While the first one went bad, the store took care of me by replacing it. Being in the retail/service industry myself, that was all I could ask for. Thanks ABT!!! And I really do like the product. Can't wait to get a new laptop that will take advantage of the speed.

This router is #1 on many 'Best Router' lists. However, I found setup to be more than a hassle on my Mac. Sometimes the setup wizard would show and sometimes it wouldn't. When I finally got the networks set up, the 5GHz band was very unreliable. Switching to 2.4GHz didn't help much. Sent this back and got a Belkin N600 for half the price. Couldn't be happier.

      Able to get wireless reception in the most distant parts of my home, including the basement. This was through multiple wall, a wood floor and a tile floor. I think that this is one of the best wireless routers on the market.

              This is for sure a quality home router. Asus has made a quality looking external looking product as well as making it run really well inside and have great signal strength.

              The ease of setup is great, but for a power user like myself, there are plenty of extra features such as a built in VPN server and easy reservations and port forwarding.

              This is one step below the 802.11ac version of this product, but for those of us that don't have any AC compatible products yet, the N speeds are more than enough. Full gig wired ports are also a plus as I have a NAS and a few other devices which need to be wired in.

                  I love this router and all its features. This thing is very fast but the range isn't quite as good as I had heard but still plenty to cover my 1500 square foot home. I have had a couple of connection drops that required a hard reboot but turning on the QOS feature seemed to fix that. I really love the ability to plug in an external hard drive. The router is fast enough to stream two 4gb movies on separate devices with no issues though it does take a while to write anything to the disk. Overall I am extremely pleased and would purchase this again.
