2 out of 5 eggsDisappointed so far

Pros: Very nice interface, a lot of configuration options, Firewall, VPN, dual band wireless, very easy to setup.

Cons: No wall mounting options, seems to run very hot.

On the second day of ownership, I am not longer able to reach https://192.168.1.1 to manage the device. To me that's a deal breaker. This device was supposed to be an upgrade for an older Netgear.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Kit!

Pros: Beautiful interface, FAST, easy installation, USB ports for cloud hard drives, built in media serving.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: I bought this as a bundle with the edimax n300 wireless access point. I am amazed at the speeds I'm getting wirelessly with the access point and this router.

Pros: Fast. Great Signal Strength and Distance. Has every feature you could want. Easy to setup

2 out of 5 eggsBad out of the box

Pros: Really cool features.

Cons: Loses wireless connections. Cycling power causes entire device to reset to default settings.

Other Thoughts: Working on an RMA now, will see how functional on the replacement is (if I get one, it shows Out of Stock right now).

5 out of 5 eggsSolved Our Problems

Pros: Easy setup, excellent coverage, good price, small footprint.

Cons: None noted in 4 months of continuous usage.

Other Thoughts: This replaced my Linksys E2000 which I then reconfigured as an access point. We had to locate our primary router at one end of a 2000 square foot ranch style house and coverage petered out after about twenty feet. The RT-N66U gave us near whole-house coverage, and with the access point at the other end of the house we have 3 bars everywhere, even in our back yard living area. I haven't figured out what to do with the Trendnet bridge yet, but at this price who cares? Highly recommended, after years of frustration with poor wireless coverage and complicated setups.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Router

Pros: Great Reliability, I have this router at home and just purchased one for my business, it's sits behind a static ip, I get great vpn access to work and great speed from the router.

Cons: It runs way warmer than previous routers I've had, not sure yet if that is a con, I guess we will see.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat moderately priced dual band router

Pros: Solid, reliable, mid-priced dual-band router.

I needed something dual-band (5ghz) to deal with the 30+ wireless networks in my apartment building. Prior to getting this router I could I could not stream video off my Qnap TS-212 NAS to my Roku, Chromebox or iPad or even other streaming services such as Hulu and Netflix without lots of buffering even though the distance to the router was less than 30 feet away from the devices.

After buying this and switching all compatible devices to the 5ghz frequency I have had no issues with connection quality and video streaming. It also helps that there are no other 5ghz networks I can pick up from my apartment vs the 30+ in the 2.4ghz range.

I previously owned an Asus RT-N16 which worked great until I moved into my new apartment and discovered the civil war of wifi networks. Do yourself a favor and get a dual-band router like this if you live in a high-density building with lots of networks and have problems streaming or keeping a good connection.

This is a great router you can upgrade to Tomato WRT and I believe DD-WRT but I haven't seen a need to as the stock firmware works fine. No need to buy a fancy AC router since most devices don't even support AC yet (wait for prices to come down on the AC routers).

Cons: Dual-band range (5ghz) leaves something to be desired. I live in a 2-bed apartment with the router in one bedroom. I do not get full signal on the 5ghz frequency in the other room. It's fast enough for my purposes and I don't have real issues given my small apartment but in a larger home I would see this as a problem (i.e. rooms further out or between floors). If you have a bigger place and want a stronger 5ghz signal you may want to go for a higher-end model.

Other Thoughts: No real complaints. I've had good luck with Asus routers and like the flexibility of loading Tomato WRT and DD-WRT.

5 out of 5 eggsreally good

Pros: design. 3 antennas. Very nice wireless signal range. Was able to get wifi phone signal on opposite corner of house downstairs while the router is upstairs opposite corner.
Very nice software, lots of options and features.
Has a nice internet data traffic readout so you can keep track of data outgoing and incoming.
Easy to setup. Very nice interface.
It is compatible with DD-WRT.

Cons: runs pretty warm.

Other Thoughts: the professional reviews highly recommend this router and so do I. Buy it.

3 out of 5 eggsSort of compatible with Clear

Pros: Really powerful hardware and provides a majority of the features available from stock DD-WRT as well as a couple add-ons like 3G/4G USB modem support.

Signal strength is excellent and I really like the WPS options available in the UI.

Cons: Security vulnerabilities in the Asus Cloud features renders them useless for the timid. Clear Wireless USB modems don't play well with this modem as many popular sites that use HTTPS fail to load very frequently. Sites like: maps.google.com, facebook.com, youtube.com. I have communicated with Asus support about this strange behavior and after providing them plenty of details (I'm a software test engineer) they haven't gotten back to me in over 10 months.

Another thing to keep in mind about the USB support on this router; it's a tad under-powered. I can use a 16' copper extension cable but if I add on a 2' aluminum usb extension my USB WiMax modem doesn't get enough power to turn on.

Other Thoughts: I should have returned this router and found one that is officially compatible with Clear Wireless rather than try to help Asus fix the issue.
