great

I've had this router for quite a while now and it has never failed me yet, its coverage is great and it does the whole house and its really fast for gaming, i get around 22ms ping on the nbn, the only thing bad about it is that it is quite light which means it can fall and move quite easily.

Great NBN router

I have been using this router with FTP NBN for the past 4 years with no issues. Great WIFI (2.4/5ghz) range and also packed full of monitoring and extra features.

This has also been one of my only long standing routers that i have not had to replace or fix. The ASUS brand is reliable and quality.

Good product compare to other ones in market

I have this router for 3 years now and i can say this router have some advantages and disadvantages,

Advantages:

- Good coverage

- high speed

- USB server

- mobile app to look into the performance and statistics

- guest network

Disadvantages:

- heat will affect the performance in summer and i have put additional fan to cool it down.

- time to time require reboot as performance drops some times

- lake of monitoring individuals traffic monitoring

- not able to use it as VDSL for new NBN Fibre to Node connections and you do require another modem to feed into it first.

does what it says on the tin

great router, it does struggle through a few walls though. But up close its super quick. I found this router was best placed right in the centre of the house. It doesnt have an overly large footprint either which was great for my small apartment. It was really simple to setup as well. Just follow the guide.

Fast but short life, lack of support

Bought this just for over a year and has been a significant upgrade from my old N900. Until it suddenly stopped working - all lights off, no power but the AC adapter light was on. Sadly it's just passed the 1yr warranty, so I brought it to an authorized service in my city for repair but unbelievably they couldn't handle routers! Response from ASUS support: no global warranty for router so it must be repaired in country of origin! I had enough and throw it in the bin. Very poor quality for such expensive top-end product, and no local service, no global warranty is a nightmare for business.
Very fast, good software
Expensive, poor quality, no local support
