4 out of 5 eggsIt works and decent support

This review is from: ASUS RT-N12/D1 Wireless-N300 3-in-1 Router/AP/Range Extender IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g/n

Pros: Cost (on sale) and it works. (gave one egg for the Newegg cost)

Cons: Tends to slow down over time. (gave 3 eggs since it does work and tech support did what I wanted)

Other Thoughts: Installed this in December as a wireless network extension in the basement (DSL modem to Switch to ASUS). It worked upon set up with no issues EXCEPT it was a separate network and none of my other machines could see it. Sent a yell for help to ASUS, and the response was quick, with mixed results. The tech told me to redo all the stuff I said I did, but he also included (to me) very detailed instructions on what I needed. Turned out to be simple, just poor documentation that seemed to be something else.

It starts off with about a 58 M connection, but over time it drops to 5 M, rebooted the computer and still at 5 M, reboot ASUS, and back to 58 M.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome router for the price

This review is from: ASUS RT-N12/D1 Wireless-N300 3-in-1 Router/AP/Range Extender IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g/n

Pros: Had this router for over a year, works flawless. The Asus firmware while maybe not the most powerful, gets the job done just fine for anyone looking for a good solid router, it has gone over a year without needing a reboot or every having a issue. Signal strength is pretty excellent, its installed on one end of my house and I still get decent signal about 50ft away through multiple walls.

Cons: None

1 out of 5 eggsDead Upon Arrival!

This review is from: ASUS RT-N12/D1 Wireless-N300 3-in-1 Router/AP/Range Extender IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g/n

Pros: Price

Cons: It's dead, only a single power light comes on. Makes for an expensive bluish nightlight.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this, and they sent me a dead router. I know this was dead from the infamous single power light that remains no matter what you do: reboot, unplug, let rest, push system restore with a ballpoint pen for 20-30 sec., repeat. Nothing. It doesn't broadcast it's SSID, no other lights flicker on, it just sits there and glows the blue power light. I've seen it happen to modems, and other models of routers. I knew right away once I plugged it in and didn't see any other activity. Awesome. Now I shall be given the task of calling ASUS to figure out what they are to do, which I am thrilled about doing.

5 out of 5 eggsExtremely easy setup as repeater

This review is from: ASUS RT-N12/D1 Wireless-N300 3-in-1 Router/AP/Range Extender IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g/n

Pros: Easiest setup as a repeater I've run across. Immediately connected to main ASUS RT-N66U as a replacement for a Dlink flashed with DD-WRT to provide better WiFi and wired connectivity (via the repeater) to the AV area of our home without having to run more ethernet!

Cons: Have both TIVO and ROKU 3 wired to the ethernet ports. Seems to kick them both off-line (even though I've disabled the auto-logout feature); requires reboot to get them back online.Still working on resolving this sole issue - I'm sure it's operator error so will give it five stars!

Other Thoughts: Works well, great price on sale, good quality.

4 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: ASUS RT-N12/D1 Wireless-N300 3-in-1 Router/AP/Range Extender IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g/n

Pros: Cheap, does 802.11n. Plenty of options: DHCP server, port forwarding, mac filtering, etc. Range is decent. Haven't had to reboot it yet.

Cons: kind of light weight, which usually means cheaply made. No performance issues so far to support that, though. During initial configuration, it's web page was very slow to respond, so it took a while to configure.

Other Thoughts: Only using this as an AP. I bought a very expensive ent-class 3Com WAP 11 years ago that finally started flaking out. I just wanted a cheap replacement to hold me over until I can invest in another ent-class WAP. The range is good, but not awesome. Signal drops after fighting through 2 or more walls. Fairly standard stuff. Once I acquire the big-daddy WAP, I am sure I can find someone who can use this, and it will fit their needs just fine. No reason to believe that this could not be a WiFi-router solution for a basic home or SOHO network.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent AP to load Tomato on

This review is from: ASUS RT-N12/D1 Wireless-N300 3-in-1 Router/AP/Range Extender IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g/n

Pros: Excellent access point to load Tomato on. Blew away stock firmware and loaded Tomato v. 1.28 by Shibby. Running two of these as wireless bridges connected to an Asus RT-N16 as the main router and they do a fantastic job.

Cons: Asus firmware is horrible. Replace that with open source firmware (Tomato, DD-WRT) immediately. Not a high performance router, but perfectly adequate for most users and works as a fantastic access point only (in bridge mode, not routing).

Other Thoughts: This is probably not a good wireless router for newbies, since you really need to load open source software on it to turn it into something great. However, if you are an advanced user, this is a great AP for the price.

1 out of 5 eggsMisleading, Pathetic Help Center In The Philippines and Fremont

This review is from: ASUS RT-N12/D1 Wireless-N300 3-in-1 Router/AP/Range Extender IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g/n

Pros: router, repeater, AP

Cons: customer support, corporate attitude, treatment of customers

Other Thoughts: This router/AP/repeater (and some other Asus products) does not have DUAL WAN like the firmware would lead you to believe. Moreover, the "support" from the "help" center in the Philippines and Fremont, CA is frustrating and disgrace to what customer support should be and a disgrace to paying customers.

I called Asus (the 812 #) in the Philippines and tried to find out why my DUAL WAN functions weren't working. They eventually told me router is "incapable of dual WAN" even thought that fimrware has a specific section for DUAL WAN settings.

After realizing they device may not be capable of what it leads me to believe, I wanted to ask if they could do something for me since I now have two of these routers. Instead of help and guidance, they played stupid and obfuscated the issue.

The people in Asus Fremont said they are not the people to take the call despite telling them that I was calling them because the people in the Philippines were no helpful and I needed someone in Fremont help. They also assured me that they were not re-directing me to the people in the Philippines but to someone "in that office". I also told them I would call back if they were directing me back to the Philippines.

What I learned was that the culture of the people at Asus was one of lying and obfuscating your issue to just get you to go away. Personally, I will make it a point to not buy from Asus again and look to people who have support and care about your OR BUILD MY OWN EQUIPMENT FROM NOW ON!
