It's expensive, but worth it to me

By 

from Ilion, Ny

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Customizeable
  • Easy to use
  • Lot's of options.

Cons

  • Firmware updates

Best Uses

  • Home network, Small business network.

Comments about Asus Tri-Band Wireless-AC5300 Gigabit Router:

I've used Asus Routers for a number of years. This is a big router. Physically and for the most part, technically.

Lot's of options to choose from. Allows you the ability to segment traffic with multiple bands and hopefully control your network congestion, if you have any.

Yes there are firmware updates. As I've done in the past, I try to wait on them and check the feedback to make sure that they are stable and resolve useful items that may or might occur.

      Best router on the market

      By 

      from Deerfield

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Asus Tri-Band Wireless-AC5300 Gigabit Router:

      I've tested many routers and this was hands down the best. I get 125mbps in almost every room of the home. The 2.4 channel is ok...but think it will get stronger with a firmware update. Mainly use 5 channels so not an issue at all. This thing is a beast.
