1 out of 5 eggsAbsolute garbage

Pros: Nothing.

Cons: Bought this back in 2011, along with an Asus RT-N16. From the first day I booted it up, it wouldn't connect properly to the RT-N16 as a range extender. I tried for a week to get it to work. Hell, I even attempted using it to connect as a main router, but that wouldn't work. So, after a week of trying I threw it in the drawer and forgot about it.

Other Thoughts: Came across this, now 3 years after buying this. I attempted to plug it in to see if I could troubleshoot it. Piece of junk wouldn't even power on. I love the Asus name, I've owned their eee pc, motherboards, video cards, routers, etc. This thing was the first product I can say was absolute trash, and a waste of a $40 paperweight at the time. Even though it's been years since I bought this, it irritates me even now to be reminded of it's failure.

1 out of 5 eggsPoor Quality

Pros: Easy to setup.

Cons: It died after a month. I could not even do a reboot of the router. Wireless was flaky on me for about a week prior, so I should have known.

Could not use ASUS website to get a phone number so I used their online chat.

Customer Service was hard to contact via online chat, but did make it through after some time. The representative Thomas C. cancelled my chat after 10 minutes basiclaly just closed it down.

There is no queue for the online chat either. It just says rep is not available with big bold letters saying LEAVE A MESSAGE....yea...where do I do that...ummm....nowhere.

Frustrating experience. Wasted my time. I don't mind debugging problems, but hate it when I can't get help from the company whose product I bought.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

4 out of 5 eggsGood Value Low End Router With USB

Pros: $37 on sale for a router with USB.

Compatible with dd-wrt.

Has SMB/SAMBA support on the USB. This is not documented. I thought I would have to install dd-wrt to get that. Reads and writes ext2 file system. It probably also mounts FAT32, NTFS, and ext3 but I have not tried those. FAT32 and NTFS are no good for a home streaming media NAS. FAT32 is limited to 4GB maximum file size. That means that FAT32 is incompatible with multi-hour recorded TV. NTFS can store large files, but read/write is notoriously slow on linux that the router runs, though I have not tried NTFS.

Web setup/configuration GUI is pretty good and easy to use if you don't mind reading through a little bit of chinglish.

Good signal strength around my home.

It has support for USB printer sharing and downloads by the router to attached USB storage, i.e. computer can be turned off.

Cons: I didn't catch it when it was on sale for ~$27.

I was unable to get the DHCP to assign static IPs by MAC address. That feature is undocumented.

Stopped communicating after about two days running. Comm resumed after cycling the power. I have experienced this with other routers. It could be a problem with my ISP/cable modem. If dd-wrt is installed it can be set to restart periodically.

Other Thoughts: The Ethernet ports are not gigabit. There is no support for guest networks. It is only single band (2.4GHz). I would not expect these features in a $37 router.

1 out of 5 eggsUnreliable!

Pros: Works well when it works.

Cons: I use this to extend my wireless network in repeater mode. My problem with this device is that after some time powered on it stops functioning, leaving my wireless devices unable to communicate with the network. Power cycling always fixes the issue, but I'm now using it "on-demand", leaving it unplugged until I need it and then only plugging it in for short times. The only thing "reliable" about it is that I know when I have wireless connectivity problems, this device is the problem.

5 out of 5 eggsawesome piece of equipment

Pros: Very nice piece of equipment. Fully compatible with dd-wrt. THis is a model that the firmware versions are frequently updated for in the dd-wrt repository, all the features on it work, and some not listed on this page that become available when you run it with dd-wrt. fully opt ware compatible with dd-wrt. eoip also runs pretty nicely.

Cons: dd-wrt related, probably a dd-wrt bug- usb storage doesn't always work when device is booted up with usb already plugged in. if this happens, need to unplug usb and plug into pc running linux, unmount filesystem, boot router, then plug usb into router once router is up and running. Again, probably more of a dd-wrt bug than something wrong with the router.

Other Thoughts: Been running this thing for a solid 3 months. use vpnc cisco vpn concentrator to vpn into the office, so home network acts as it's part of the office vpn. if running opt ware, this thing has enough ram to load an opt ware partition with a few apps directly into ram at /tmp/opt (then mount -o bind /tmp/opt /opt) and you'll see that everything fits in ram... for the price, it's a pretty nice piece of equipment.

1 out of 5 eggsBiggest piece of garbage I have ever owned

Pros: Cheap.
Supports DD-WRT.
Works some of the time.
Can use as a print server, on the rare occasions when it works.

Cons: Drops WAN connection a LOT. As in, at least 3 times every day.
Doesn't seem to work roughly half the time, regardless of how it's configured.

Other Thoughts: I moved this router to a secondary AP/print server, because it was dropping connections WAY too much as my primary router. Guess what? It still sucks as an AP. Waste of $30.

5 out of 5 eggsCheck on-line for better instructions

Pros: Easy to configure, good range, great price, fast speed when coupled with a DOCSIS 3.0 Modem. Even better when you add a second unit as a repeater! When you use a repeater, you may even be able to share your internet with a neighbor and reduce your monthly fees!

Cons: Instructions are weak, check on-line for tips from others on special configuration options.

Other Thoughts: Search on-line for how to configure as a repeater. When using some OS / Wireless systems, I had to change the IP address on the repeater to get my wife's old XP laptop to connect. IPad, Windows 7, and Droid all work wonderful with the main and repeater. I highly recommend getting two of these, as I placed the repeater in a cabinet half way across my home. Now everywhere I get 5 bars, excelent connecting and speed! No problems with my wireless printers, and easy to maintain same security pin.

1 out of 5 eggsGood Router-Poor ASUS Support

Pros: Have used and installed this router as a router, an access point and an MFP print server always with great results. Alternate firmware improves it even more. Product represents a pretty good value. With good customer service this would be rated at 4+ eggs.

Cons: Finally got one with a DOA power supply. ASUS Tech support was adamant that they could not replace just the power supply without sending everything back to them. I NEEDED to use the router and set it up using a different power supply until they replaced the original bad one. They refused to work with me or send me a replacement. This product becomes a pretty poor value when ASUS will not stand behind their defective product.

Other Thoughts: Stick with upper tier brand names and this won't happen to you.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

1 out of 5 eggsIts just ok

Pros: May work as a router - but not a repeater.
Nice looking

Cons: Can't be used as a repeater if the SSID on the primary router is set to not broadcast.

Other Thoughts: The repeater function is a problem - if your primary router is NOT broadcasting the SSID. For the first time, it does ask you to enter the SSID, and the security key. It appears to be connected. May even work.. Now disconnect this repeater guy - and reconnect, surprisingly you will have to reenter the SSID, and key all over again. Not sure why it can not remember the data from previous session!

The dd-wrt also may not a very smooth if you wish to use the USB. I couldn't get the USB to work. Reverted back to the latest asus firmware..

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

We apologize for the difficulties you have experienced while using this router. We stand behind the quality of our products. If you ever have issues with our products, please do not hesitate to contact us for assistance.

4 out of 5 eggsGood router

Pros: Didn't have time to flash it to DD-WRT but the factory firmware has been stable enough for me. The feature set is sufficient for basic use. Performance-wise I have no complaint so far -- I didn't do stress test but I do see notable speed boost over my old G router. Good looking (relative to many other routers in the same price range).

Cons: Only support 100M Lan.
Somehow I couldn't get my ASUS PCI-N10 connect to it when setting it to use 20/40M bandwidth. Well I guess I can't blame the router -- it looks more like an issue with the adapter.
