1 out of 5 eggsBad.

Pros: It looks cool, I suppose.

Cons: This has given me nothing but headaches. Connected directly from my modem I get speeds of 90-100mb, WiFi through this the highest I have gotten is 1/10th of that. It was to the point where I hooked up my 5 year old Netgear and my WiFi speed instantly nearly doubled.

My 5ghz network doesn't show up. Not even when I am directly next to the device.

I don't even want to get into the rebate process. It took me 5ish weeks to receive my EXPEDITED refund (that you have to pay 2 dollars for).

Other Thoughts: Severely disappointed in Asus.

1 out of 5 eggsPain in the .....

Pros: The price, when it looked like $20 was all it was going to cost me.

Cons: Doing the rebate is extremely painful. They do everything they can to make you decide that the $20 rebate isn't worth your time.

Other Thoughts: I would not buy this again purely because they are being difficult for the rebate. I haven't even set the thing up yet and they already turned me against it, just to try to save $20. I can't even imagine how bad it is going to be if I have to ask for help setting it up or get it repaired/replaced under warranty.

1 out of 5 eggsLAN ports throttled speed from 140mbps to 20!

Pros: Wifi worked great

Cons: I tested my speed from my cable company and got 140 mbps going from my cable modem to my PC via ethernet, When hooked up through the router, I was getting speed around 20 mbps. The wifi works great and Im getting around 90 mbps.
Tech support was useless on 3 different occasions. Wanted me to send this one in, wait 2 weeks and hope it comes back repaired. Newegg customer service was no help either. Look elsewhere to buy a router. Asus sucks

5 out of 5 eggsAmaxing router...A++++

Pros: So far I have used this router for 1 week. I love the strength of the signal. My verizon router n150 was giving me 10 MBPS while this one is giving me almost 30MBPS. This router also support 6 guest SSID(3 on 2.4+3 on 5). You wont find this information anywhere.

Cons: So far None.

Other Thoughts: Yes, this is amaxing(amazing) router and very cheap.I (most of people out there) do not need AC router since most devices are not supporting them since AC is newer technology.

5 out of 5 eggsAnother Great Asus Product

Pros: good speed, low cost, reliability

Cons: None, so far.

Other Thoughts: I'm an Asus products fan and this is just another item to re-enforce my beliefs and no matter what I buy, Newegg can't be beat for price, delivery and customer service.

2 out of 5 eggsDisappointing

Pros: Good wireless N support. Prompt reply from Asustek support. Very fast free Newegg delivery.

Cons: Couldn't get Wireless G connections to work. N worked in Auto and N only but not Legacy. The manual didn't say anything about Access Point mode.

Other Thoughts: I was unable to get Auto or Legacy settings to work so my wireless devices that work well with our TP-Link B-G-N router to connect to the Asustek. I tried three different firmware versions but had the same problem. Also experienced the nonstop firmware upgrade light blinking. Maybe it knew something but wasn't talking. I emailed Asustek and they got back to me in a day or so. But the instructions referenced an option that's not available on my router. Essentially try this bios, hard reset, and give it a go.
I would hesitate to buy an Asustek product if I thought this was going to happen again. I've never had an issue with TP-Link.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic little router

Pros: Duel Band / Runs cool once updated with Padavan Firmware
***VPN CLIENT WITH PADAVAN Firmware upgrade***
Good quality hardware especially for the price.
All this for for 20 bux after rebate!?!?!

Cons: Just as other eggers stated, the Asus firmware is pretty lousy and makes the router run hot with un-predictable speeds for the wireless.

Again, just as other have stated, the 5GHZ band is weak at best but 2.4GHz has enough power and range for everything else needed and will stream HD to your TV if it's not too far away say 20-25 feet max. Lower demand devices should be ok but to be fair, the antennas are small and internal so maybe I'm expecting way to much for my $20 purchase.

The stand itself is sturdy enough but it comes out of the slots way to easy. It could have been better thought out.

I give this 4 eggs only because the stock firmware NEEDS to be replaced with Padavan otherwise it would have been a 5 even with that cheesy stand.

Other Thoughts: If you catch this router on sale, BUY IT but make sure you dump the original firmware in favor of Padavan. Just google it, download it, and flash! You're done!

4 out of 5 eggsGood when it works

Pros: -Stylish looking router
-Capable of handling very fast internet speeds
-Nice user interface for setting up your home network.

Cons: -Had a lot of issues with stability in internet speeds upon arrival. Would get constant fluctuations between my max internet speed and 1.5Mbps all throughout the day. It was extremely frustrating.
-The router also kept telling me to download the latest firmware even though it already had the latest firmware(minor annoyance i know, but i just hated seeing the notification constantly)

Other Thoughts: Talked to customer service a few times via email and by phone. Ended up having to do a lot of resetting of the router and reinstalling firmware. It's been working well so far.

3 out of 5 eggsWould buy ASUS router again, but definitely not this one

Pros: Has lasted longer than other routers, very capable features, decent UI, constant firmware updates & fixes

Cons: Had an IPTV issue, but Asus fixed it.
Outer design is very bad - constantly separating from base and tumbling over, no mounting holes
Internal antennas are weak and the entire device must be positioned in a certain way else coverage is bad
Poor coverage spread in two story house
Very, very weak 5GHz band, so weak it is unusable

Other Thoughts: Next time I'll buy a more powerful Asus model with external antennas.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for your time on posting this review, we are sorry to hear your experience with the ASUS router. Please allow me to assist you.

I know that you are somehow disappointed with the routers performance. Have you tried changing the router's settings like the 5GHz channel bandwidth or was the router's firmware up to date? Was the SSID of the 2.4 and 5GHz different from each other?

For further assistance or if you want to discuss this matter with me, please email me at customerloyalty@asus.com and put case #N160464319 in the subject line for a reference. I'm here to help you and all others with these issues, as our customer loyalty department dedicated to bringing a resolution to all issues related to our products.

4 out of 5 eggsExactly what I wanted.

Pros: Replacing an ac750 Rosewill router that support said "must not be compatible" with my Arris SB6141. So far so good. Using just 5GHz and stock UI. No disconnects, adequate wifi speed, range is fine in my 1BR apartment. Unlike my Rosewill ac router, it works great with my Moto modem.

Cons: None yet.
