Perfect for our family.

published

This asus router has been reliable and great for our family use. It has a good range and I can control the wifi people in the family use so we can limit the children on what they stream.

Purchased in July 2017.

Best router I've ever owned

published

Picked one up on eBay which was some kind of grey import (at a *significantly* lower price than available from most AU stores, but along with an international travel adapter it works just fine. It's great having the ability to be able to install custom firmware on it, such as Asuswrt-merlin. It's highly configurable for those who like to tinker with things, I've even got a full Debian OS (ARM) running off a USB stick, which runs a whole bunch of services. As long as the router is on, all of those services are available. I would recommend this to anyone looking to buy a decent router, that hopefully will last me many years to come.

Easy to setup, good wifi signals but not great

published

I already have a router so only replaced my netgear wifi extender with this router. Setup is easy once I plugged cable directly into my computer, this is unclear in instructions. Wifi signals are good for both bands but speeds are not as good as my old Apple time capsule. Still having occasional dropouts but far less common than the junked netgear.

Outstanding performance

published

Satisfied with the strong wifi range, easy setup, and speed stability. Highly recommended for heavy Internet user. For less price, could go with rt-ac68u, which is another great router. Most of asks router is great anyway.

Yes. If you don't know how to do it, this router is way out of your league.
