2 out of 5 eggsNot a fan. Works, but not well

Pros: It works most of the time.

Cons: Has issues with reliability. Several times a year I have to reboot it to "fix" wireless issues. It also has strange issues with intermittent connectivity that seemingly vanish as quick as they came.

Other Thoughts: I've owned this AP for close to 2 years. It died and frankly I'm glad. Looking forward to replacing it as it's performed poorly most of the time I've owned it.

FYI, I'm a network engineer by trade. Thought I'd go cheap and get a residential AP and wish I never had.

5 out of 5 eggsExtends Ethernet Wired Connection through Wifi

Pros: Provides the RJ45 Connection I had to use in order to connect my Vonage modem wirelessly.

Cons: None, as far as I'm concerned for what I'm using it for.

Other Thoughts: I had to watch parts of the product video a few times to be certain it did what I was looking for it to do. I feel this functionality could be made much stronger in the general info about the product and this function is not easy to find generally in products.

Mainly, the ability to extend a needed/required wired connection, wirelessly.

I also think they should mention Vonage along with XBox as the Vonage modem has no wireless ability, yet the device gives it wireless ability.

For my need, when I travel or go on vacation and rent a beach house for a week or so, all homes have wireless internet but the modem/router is rarely located anywhere near an area suitable for an office setup - which is fine since the computers I take are wireless. But it's my Vonage modem and desktop phone that I want to have with me and use since that completes my normal office structure. This device allows me to use my Vonage modem and phone without having to worry about do I need a 20ft or a 200ft or 500ft network cable with me in order to do so.

1 out of 5 eggsASUS Repeater

Pros: None

Cons: I purchased 3 extenders/repeaters for my American Legion. All were unstable, signal dropped off and had to be rebooted often. After updating the firmware the problem still existed. I have pulled them all out.

Manufacturer Response:

We apologize for the inconvenience this issue has caused you but let me go ahead and further assist you. Can we have more information about unit's issue? which frequency are you repeating? 2.4 or 5 GHz? also how far are you from the adapter when you are trying to connect wirelessly?

For further technical assistance or if you want to discuss this matter with me, please email me at customerloyalty@asus.com and put case #N150760116 in the subject line for a reference.

1 out of 5 eggsAsus can't do everything great

Pros: Nice design
Easy setup

Cons: Waste of money was using as a access point and wound constantly have slow unresponsive access. Complete network drops. Either buy from different manufacturer or save your money

1 out of 5 eggsNot Happy with this AP

Pros: Looks good, powerful signal - when working

Cons: Had the same experience as Jordan P.

Was using this device for about a month when the kids started complaining that their wifi connections to their phones was not working. I also noticed that brand new win7 laptop not even 3 feet away said it had a connection but in reality it didn't - couldn't load web pages.

Downloaded WifiAnalyzer on my droid phone and watched the signal just disappear for seconds at a time, then reappear for about 30 seconds then disappear again.

And just like Jordan P's review "it seems to trick my Network and Sharing Center in the Windows Control Panel into showing that I DO have a connection, but I don't".

This thing is junk, just hope I can return it for something else.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear David,

1 out of 5 eggsNot a dual-band AP, aingle radio (cannot use 2.4 and 5GHz simultaneously)

Pros: Can be used as a repeater or client, in addition to an AP. It must be a great client device, because it is intolerable as an AP.

Cons: Not a good dual-band AP as only a single radio can be used simultaneously. I cannot believe they would charge this much, and include a GbE port, but only ship a single radio.
Also requires a reboot for any minor change. Intolerable.

Other Thoughts: I have owned and used several different dual-band APs and this, by far, is the most limiting with the most infuriating setup/reboot requirements.

4 out of 5 eggsHappy

Pros: Currently it connects to my wifi 50 ft through 2 cinder block walls and I get 3-4mbs up on the average download.
It was easy to setup and the range is incredible.

Cons: It's quite possibly the brightest thing besides the sun. If it's going to be in a room people sleep in, suggest hiding it in a box.

5 out of 5 eggsI got one

Pros: It made me happy.

I saw the whole enchilada [ 60M] from Charter finally via this thing, which I honestly never knew existed.

I sweated the drivers and handshakes and that fun stuff, you know. I did not have to do any of that, and it worked. It is an automatic set up apparently. It grabs a browser for you when you plug it all in, before you can sit down at the monitor.

Cons: I could use a 20 ft. Ethernet cable i guess. I made this work.

Other Thoughts: The "night light" is great. it even is purported to send signals if the wireless signal is poor.

The night light is groovy as it shows on a reflective ripple surface and so there is motion as you look at it when you move past it.

3 out of 5 eggsEA-N66R Repeater

Pros: Glad I bought the extra warranty on this. I had the EA-N66 at that worked for about a year then went out on me. Then the replacement was the EA-N66R which was not doing a good job at all. And I am a huge ASUS fan but this repeater is not as good or even comes close to the Amped wireless extenders-repeaters.

Cons: Just get too warm after time and I think looses its ability to work when you get them new. Seems to take about a year or so.

Other Thoughts: If you want the best wireless repeater that has 4 ports and kicks, but over anything else I have ever used as a repeater or extender. Go with the Amped products. I like this one and got the 12db gain antennas and I can go 2 blocks away with my phone even. My laptop I can go around 4 blocks. It's an amazing product. I have used Hawkings and many others and the Amped products are the best bar none. So far.

5 out of 5 eggsA Speed Demon

Pros: Wow! I was using one of these to pull the neighbors WiFi into my home. I was using a AC Asus router with a NetGear stick in my desktop. Then I plugged one of these babies in and now I have 1GB. Before I had 144 to 100Mbps. No lag now. I used this setup in my Florida home to pick up the club house 300 feet away and ended up with FREE WiFi at 1GB with 3 Computer, One VOIP Phone setup and the sling on dish DVR.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Love the blue lights.
