A great choice for home and small office, the ASUS RT-N10+ wireless-n router enables multiple computers to share one internet connection, with up to 150Mbps wireless speed. This router support up to 4 SSIDs in a single unit - you can create four separate networks with individual bandwidth control and access authority to achieve superior security, flexibility and manageability required by modern business. QIS (Quick Internet Setup) guides you through setup procedure and get you up and running in a few click, while web-based network map helps you easily manage the network. The support for DDWRT firmware brings you a new level of functionality, customization and flexibility helping you make the most your investment.
Pros: It's got some decent speed and it can run DD-WRT.
Cons: It freezes up and becomes completely unresponsive every hour or so requiring the power to be disconnected to recover.
Other Thoughts: I don't know if it's a common issue, or just because it was a refurb that never got fully checked out before going back out to the users... but mine will run fine for about an hour, then completely freeze up. The wireless signal drops out and the router becomes unresponsive. It has to be unplugged to recover, and then it does the same thing again. During the couple months I ran it, I updated the firmware with the latest on the Asus website in hopes that would help; it didn't. I also installed DD-WRT to rule out the possibility that it was software related; it wasn't. The best part of this story is Asus support. I contacted them (on Oct 23, 2013) and based on the serial number, their first-line support folks said it was out of warranty. It's a refurb, so that's believable. They had me send a copy of my Newegg invoice for proof of purchase date (refurbs have a 3 month warranty from date of purchase). I did that and responded to the first guy about it. He said to create an RMA, so I did that as well. Then the RMA guys mention the same thing about the warranty and that I'm going to have to pay for service. After about 6 days, I get a response from the warranty folks saying that my warranty is indeed good (until Nov 7, 2013). I forwarded a copy of this confirmation to the RMA department who said that I'd have to go back through the warranty team and they'd have to create an RMA or I'd still have to pay for the service. Hmm... So I get back to the first-line support guy and he says something similar and directs me to another department. So this type of thing goes on for a couple weeks, and wouldn't you know it, it's past my real warranty date now.. and I haven't heard word one from anyone at Asus support since then. This router is going in the garbage and I'll never buy another Asus product for me or any of my clients.
