        Comments about Asus Wireless-AC1750 Dual-Band 802.11ac Gigabit Router:

        The ASUS router is very simple to set up and pretty much works right out the box. However, there recently has been an exploit targeted by hackers that enables them to bypass the authentication protocols written within the router. If you do not update the firmware to the latest patch, any hacker worth their salt will be able to access your local network and mess with your computers.

        This is not my own subjective evaluation but fact that I am passing along to fellow consumers. Once I had the firmware updated I was very satisfied with this router.

            Comments about Asus Wireless-AC1750 Dual-Band 802.11ac Gigabit Router:

            Wireless AC is the next generation of wireless networking. It is capable of handling speeds up to 1750 Mbps speed (1300 on 5Ghz and 450 on 2.4Ghz). Actual throughput is usually half the manufacturer specs, but needless to say, it's fast.

            The only downside about wireless AC is that there are currently very few products that have AC adapters in them. Your current computer, phone, tablet, etc, won't have AC network cards in them. There are USB or PCIE adapters that you can purchase to make a computer compatible. 802.11ac also operates only on the 5Ghz band on the 80mhz channel. This will mean that some homes may experience limited range. The upside to that is that there is considerably much less interference in this band from other devices or neighbors which will give you a solid signal. In my home, I have this router on the second floor, and I am able to get full coverage throughout the house. Keep in mind that the further you are from a router the less throughput you will have.

            The router has two USB 2.0 inputs on the rear panel. Many complain that it should have USB 3.0, but doing so would have introduced interference with the wireless broadcast so ASUS has left that out of this product. You can connect External HDD's to each of these ports and stream content from these Hard Drives to any connected DLNA devices on your network.

            One of the best things about this is how easy the setup is and how great the graphical user interface is. You don't need to be a pro in order to setup both your 2.4 and 5Ghz bands, setting up guest networks or sharing media across devices.

            Even if you don't have 802.11ac clients in your home, you can still do wireless N networking. That makes this product ideal to use today, and in the future as more devices start including AC adapters. You can purchase a second one of these and put that in "Bridge" mode in a second location and wire with cat 5e or 6 cable from the bridge into your clients Ethernet port to take advantage of the faster speeds.

            This product is a must if you want to stream HD (1080p) video wirelessly from one client to another.
