1 out of 5 eggsHad another one die... makes THREE!

Pros: I'm done trying to find the silver lining in these things!

Cons: Another client called with some problems.

Walk in and she says "this box doesn't look like it has any power, do you think that is the problem?" *sigh*

Thanks for screwing me again ASUS!

Other Thoughts: Sorry but I can't be replacing these at client's homes and offices every year... it reflects poorly on me and my business!

1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't last

Pros: See cons

Cons: Same problem as other reviewers... We have had this router for 2 1/2 years and all of a sudden it won't stay powered on. Problem with the capacitor inside and the router is out of warranty now. Googling the issue shows it to be an issue others have had with this same router. Range isn't great anyway, go with something else!

5 out of 5 eggsRunning strong for over 2 years

Pros: I have a simple rule: don't review it unless you've had it long enough. We bought this November 2012. It's almost 2015. That's over 2 years of absolutely HAMMERING this router with a heavy workload, and it has held up well. Reviewing it after just a month or two doesn't make sense, because I don't need a router that lasts 2 months.

- No downtime
- No need to restart it to "resolve sluggish performance"
- Always a consistent ~100 MB/sec if devices can handle sending/receiving at that speed
- Enough CPU or RAM horsepower to not cause bottlenecks
- No weird glitches, like ports not forwarding when set up correctly or anything
- No conflicts, no strange errors in log, etc
- The wireless works without issue (I like external antennas)

We have about 10 ethernet devices hooked up to it (via use of switches) and 20 or so wireless, and never a single issue or hiccup in all this time. With a huge custom home server (many 3TB drives in RAID6), we move serious data around constantly, and it doesn't skip a beat.

We put DD-WRT on it from the start. It handles it flawlessly. I love the level of customization this offers.

Cons: None! A lot of people said theirs died after X number of months. Hopefully this doesn't happen here. If it did die, I think we got our money's worth because we got it at a great price.

Other Thoughts: I've had an up and down experience with this company (the thermal part on my ASUS Radeon card was not conducting well, but my ASUS 24" LCD has been going strong for 5 years) but they generally seem like a reliable manufacturer.

1 out of 5 eggsDead at 2 1/2 years

Pros: This router worked great for 2 1/2 years. After opening it up it has the bulging capacitor. It's not worth the money and the tech support is awful.

Cons: Doesn't last

Other Thoughts: Asus has a seriously problem with this router and if your out of warranty they do not care.

3 out of 5 eggsRock Solid But Short Lifespan

Pros: Good throughput and very stable with Tomato flashed firmware.

Cons: It just died on me 1 day ago with no warning at only about 18 months old. That's unacceptably short considering I replaced it with an old workhorse WRT54GL which is pushing 6 years old at this point.

Other Thoughts: I never used the wifi, preferring to use a separate wireless access point, so I can't speak to its reliability or signal strength.

1 out of 5 eggsTwo failed within a month of each other

Pros: Once outfitted with a newer good firmware they did their job well... till they failed.

Cons: Out of the box gave me fits on a direct tv setup as the receiver would NOT connect to the AP. After updating firmware this problem went away.

After just over a year both of the two that I was running in different locations died in the same manner.

You plug them in and they light up for a second and then go dark.

Shortest lifespan I've ever seen in a router. I've technically owned them over two years so I'm sure they won't let me exchange them under warranty even though I know 100% that one of them had only been in services for just under a year. I could probably figure out when the other one got installed but it was similar time frame.

Other Thoughts: For the price I paid, I really expected more. I rather keep going through WRT-54GL's than these over priced guys.

4 out of 5 eggsDied just after 2 years

Pros: Fantastic router when it worked. I flashed it to open source and that was much better than stock. I never had to reboot it - it worked flawlessly till it died.

Cons: Died just after the warranty was over. This is the first router I've ever owned that just quit working. I'm considering buying another Asus, but they're kind of expensive and I'm not sure I want something that will just die unexpectedly again.

Other Thoughts: It's always had this weird flashing blue to the internal LEDs... Not sure if it was supposed to be this way or if I just got a weird one. It didn't seem to cause any problems, but was just annoying to look at.

1 out of 5 eggsAnother failed one

Pros: None

Cons: Died after 10 months.

Other Thoughts: Tried to return it under warranty, not easy, the costumer representative tried to talk to me in resetting the router. I told him I have done that many times and don't feel like doing again. After that he said he can't help me.

5 out of 5 eggsRock-solid router for DD-WRT

Pros: - High CPU speed and lots of memory
- Excellent wireless range
- Runs cool

Cons: none, unless you have an aversion to blue status lights instead of green or red.

Other Thoughts: This router performs extremely well, and performs very well with 10 or more client connections working simultaneously. Previous I had used Rosewill (TPLink), Linksys and Netgear routers. This one performs extremely well, without going into the over 100 dollar range link many Cisco and others do. I highly recommend DD-WRT kong build 22000 or later for this device.
