5 out of 5 eggsWorks good

Pros: - Good coverage considering unit sits in basement all the time
- Stable all the time once on latest firmware
- A lot of configuration options to help managing your network

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Have been using this unit for two months and so far have been happy with it. I'm not using a lot of options that current firmware provides, so I cannot comment about advanced functionality, but it does good what is expected of this router: stability, coverage and speed.

3 out of 5 eggsFails occasionally

Pros: A good dual-band wireless router for the re-certified price. Nice management interface. ASUS utilities are pretty good.

Cons: Fails every month or so. Just quits working. If I let it sit powered off for a day or two then power it back on it magically comes back to life and continues to function; which is annoying.

5 out of 5 eggsRock Solid

Pros: Great coverage. You can adjust the angle of antennas to fine tune coverage which I did to capture the upper floor better. The admin console seems full featured and easy to use. Was easy to tell who was connected.
This is the 3rd router I have installed (but first refurbished one) and all have been outstanding. One covers a 3 story house that is 5400 square feet.

Cons: taking a small risk on the refurbished device

Other Thoughts: Buy an extended warranty plan for the refurbished model. I got a 2-year plan for $18.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks like a champ

Pros: Good coverage.
No drops in signal.
No rebooting.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I flashed this with tomato as soon as I got it.
I live in my own house, so I can use the 2.4 GHz channel for the farthest reach without interference from neighbors.

1 out of 5 eggsFinally gave up on this

Pros: The refurb was cheaper than new. VPN worked well.

Cons: Totally flaky. The 2.4GHz radio would randomly work. The DLNA server would stop very frequently. I would frequently be connected to this router, but couldn't get to any sites until I disconnected and reconnected.

Other Thoughts: Don't waste the money on a refurb. I finally broke down and bought a new one. The new one works flawlessly. The refurb was just infuriating. sometimes it would work, sometimes it wouldn't. I am now convinced that customers do the final QA for Asus. If they buy one and it's flaky, send it back and it just goes right to refurb.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsBest Router Ever

Pros: I have had many routers. This is amazing. The stock firmware (based on Tomato) was great. The USB file sharing/NAS worked great. The Recovery Mode means it is impossible to brick the router with a bad flash. I tried DD-WRT and Shibby's TomatoUSB firmwares. I stuck with Shibby Tomato so I can run ad blocking script on router. Wireless has great range. The Gigabit LAN works flawlessly including WAN port.

Cons: Was too expensive(until now).

Other Thoughts: No not hesitate. You will be glad you got this. Using ALL-U-NEED ad blocking script so no one on network sees any banner ads.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat router

Pros: - Very fast
- Great coverage
- Very good price when purchased refurbished

Cons: - None as of yet

Other Thoughts: Purchased to replace two routers that covered my home. This one does toe work of both, better. No dead spots and no sped issues, even with multiple streaming users. Running 4 networks (Home and Guest at 2.4 and 5 GHz).

Using as AP, with the FIOS router doing the routing.
That's a FIOS issue, though.

Highly recommended.

5 out of 5 eggsSuperb

Pros: I bought this router twice, once as open box and once as refurb. Both are working excellent with great signal. Very reliable and I've gone through a month without needing a reboot. Bought the second one to use as repeater to get even better signal. The Asus interface is very easy to work with, and the router support DDWRT as well.

Cons: None so far.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't bother thinking about this

Pros: When it intermittently worked, had great signal and throughput

Cons: Consistently list it's configuration and then the wan port went.

5 out of 5 eggsSuperb long range router

Pros: Set up multiple WIFI SSIDs with a 5G, straight N and a guest network, as well as use both USB ports for a printer and external cloud storage. All juast plain work. In addition, the range on this puppy is far better than my old DDwrt modded Linksys54G, to the point that I dont even need a WIFI repeater in my garage 100ft away. All my dead spots are gone in the house, and a noticeable improvement in all uses. Never had a crash or forced reboot, software covers 99% of what the average user can/would want, or would get from DDWRT, for instance. Stream video & audio, move large files, no issues from the Router. Love it.

Cons: MIne worked best (coverage) standing up, so plugging the cables in onthe top is rather unsightly and ungainly. LEDs are insanely bright at night. I SHarpied them all to dull them a bit. But my Motorola Docis 3.0 modem is worse, so it's not just ASUS
