2 out of 5 eggsWorked good for a little bit

This review is from: ASUS RT-N66U Dual-Band Wireless-N900 Gigabit Router, DD-WRT Open Source support, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab

Pros: Looks nice, worked well, when it worked, has a stand so it can lay down or stand up. Had good distance.

Cons: Purchased this in 8/2014. Worked good until about January 2015 then it overheated and melted down. ASUS worked with me and I sent this one back and they got me a new one. This new one went out on me about a month ago. So it lasted me about 14 months. I love ASUS items but I don't recommend this one. Decided not to go with them again and got me a Modem/router in one from another company.

5 out of 5 eggsJust excellent

This review is from: ASUS RT-N66U Dual-Band Wireless-N900 Gigabit Router, DD-WRT Open Source support, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab

Pros: Fast connection
Huge Range
Stable connection
Beautiful interface and easy to use
Firmware upgrades are fast and easy
Works really well when connected with other Asus Routers
Beautiful design, it will look good in you living room

Cons: Nothing huge...
Will get hot, but this does not affect performance.
It is a dust magnet!

Other Thoughts: Default Firmware version is terrible, just upgrade it and you will have the best router out there
When I bought it was +$120, and it is worth every penny

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great - seems like a great value

This review is from: ASUS RT-N66U Dual-Band Wireless-N900 Gigabit Router, DD-WRT Open Source support, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab

Pros: It seems to have good range and high throughput. It was simple to set up.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: The end user has some wifi devices, one of which had trouble connecting to a previous router. No complaints with this new router.

2 out of 5 eggsUndependable Wireless

This review is from: ASUS RT-N66U Dual-Band Wireless-N900 Gigabit Router, DD-WRT Open Source support, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab

Pros: Looks great. Router and wired functions work well. Firmware updates are very easy. Great specs.

Cons: The unit had to be replaced for failure during the warranty period: not a pleasant experience. Wireless drops connections randomly with both routers. When I bought it three years ago, it was a relatively new product; the reviews had not caught up with its short comings. I would not recommend this product or any other Asus networking device.

Other Thoughts: My order for new a new wireless router and access points has already been placed with Newegg. Needless to say, it is not Asus.

4 out of 5 eggsworks fine until it doesn't, but problem appears to be repairable

This review is from: ASUS RT-N66U Dual-Band Wireless-N900 Gigabit Router, DD-WRT Open Source support, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab

Pros: Fairly easy to set up, worked with no problems for almost 2 years.

Cons: Started randomly losing internet connection, then died.

Other Thoughts: Similar problems to what others have written. After a couple years, it started randomly dropping the internet connection. Both wireless and wired connections were affected. After a few minutes, it would re-connect. Now, it seems completely dead. Lights are on as if everything is OK, but no connection, wireless or wired.

UPDATE: I disconnected power for several seconds, then was able to log into the router via a wired connection. I then followed Asus support's directions to update the router's firmware and reset it. It now works again. We'll see how long it lasts.

Note that you can save the router's configuration -- I did this when I originally set it up, which saved a lot of trouble as I could re-load the config after the firmware update and reset. Also, Asus support recommended using different names for 2.4 and 5 GHz wireless, which lets me know which devices are on which band.

3 out of 5 eggsMediocre

This review is from: ASUS RT-N66U Dual-Band Wireless-N900 Gigabit Router, DD-WRT Open Source support, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab

Pros: Ran my network 95% of of the time?

Cons: Ran really hot. Streaming video to 2 or more devices in my household would cause the machine to heat up and become less responsive. If the router was too hot to touch, this usually implied poor networking performance.

Network outages would require the device to be reconfigured from scratch. I have a fairly ordinary cable modem setup, but if my network or DNS went out for any reason, I found it would screw up my router settings royally. The hours of time required to reboot/reconfigure the router settings were just not worth it.

Ships with default login and password of "admin/admin". Never very confident that my hardware was secure.

Other Thoughts: Had to buy another router to address the failings described above.

1 out of 5 eggsHistory of Poor Performance - Then Death

This review is from: ASUS RT-N66U Dual-Band Wireless-N900 Gigabit Router, DD-WRT Open Source support, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab

Pros: The only pro for this device is that it can be configured for multiple bands and guest networks.

Cons: The con is a big con. This router has a constant need to be reset with the power button as performance and connections drop frequently, both wired and wireless. Even after configuring the router to automatically reboot every day, it would still need to be power-cycled. Then all of a sudden - nothing. The lights are on, but nobody's home.

Other Thoughts: This router has made me reconsider the ASUS brand which I had thought was a good indicator of quality. I have put in a request with ASUS support, but due to the 2 year warranty period having passed, I am not too hopeful.

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsworst router

This review is from: ASUS RT-N66U Dual-Band Wireless-N900 Gigabit Router, DD-WRT Open Source support, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab

Pros: 1-Easy setup
2-Parent control

Cons: heats up

Other Thoughts: it was my worst experience with that router. setup was easy and right after setup i feel that the router is warm, i placed a fan at the back( router was installed on stand) and after 1 day of use i had several issues
1- it loads some websites partially, without images
2- i was unable to download or update apps on my iPad, it would disconnect with error, unable to download.
3- videos on some websites keep buffering including Facebook shared albums
things i did and it didn't fix the problem

i updated latest fimware from asus website 3.0.0.4378.9459
contacted to asus customer service and no reply.
finally i put back my TP link tl wr841n and everything is fine. it didn't have many features but its fast and only $17
I'm waiting for a return label and next time would filter asus while looking for a router.
i read all bad reviews and ignored them..please think twice before ordering that product.

2 out of 5 eggsEasy to set up

This review is from: ASUS RT-N66U Dual-Band Wireless-N900 Gigabit Router, DD-WRT Open Source support, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab

Pros: Easy to set up and use

Cons: Died after not even 18 months of use. Its just me and my wife in the house. We stream from our chromebox, which is direct wired in, stream from xbox, and otherwise general web use on our laptop and phones. This got so bad that even wired connections would constantly drop. My wireless speed tests would range from 0.86 mbps to all of a sudden 54.6 mbps, then back down into the 0.XX range again.

Other Thoughts: Would not purchase again

Cons: I expected the life of this thing to last way longer than it did.

Other Thoughts: Not too happy with the life span.
