5 out of 5 eggsWonderful, Inexpensive Router

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: The router GUI is nice and easy to understand. I have an ASUS 5 port switch connected to it as well and they have both worked flawlessly to power my WiFi network and my business. I have not had to reset the router yet since I set this up on March 18. Even after a few ISP maintenance outages. The wireless range on it is comparable to the range of a router/modem that you would receive from an ISP. It is in the center of my house, and I get about 50-60% on the ends of the house (1,500 sq. ft.). I can go outside to my garage and get 1/4 bars on my phone, which is enough to stream some music; that's about 40-50 ft. away.

As far as what is connected to the router; 2 desktops, a switch (which has 2 desktops connected, and another 1 or 2 depending on business). We also have a laptop that gets connected occasionally, and all 5 of us have a mobile device. All of this load and it hasn't had an issue yet. I had many router/modems from my previous ISP and I would have to reset them at least once a week.

Cons: I have not had any cons with this router yet.

Other Thoughts: If you want a good, dependable router for a good, affordable price; don't hesitate to buy this one. I have always had good luck with ASUS products.

5 out of 5 eggsAsus Router

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: I bought this router to replace another brand router which would not connect with all the devices in the house no matter where I moved it and then went up in smoke after 3 weeks with no apparent reason. I buy alot of asus products because they are well built. work good, and have longer warranties then most manufacturers. This router was easy to set up has outstanding range and I did not have to move it around to get all my devices around the house to connect. I can connect to my network on my cell phone a block away from the house. It has good security and has a good price, and a 2 year warranty which most items have a lot less.

Cons: none

2 out of 5 eggsWorked great - for a year

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 range, very fast throughputs compared to other n-routers I've owned. Extremely reliable. I never had to power cycle the router, it simply worked. The firmware is great. I bought this router expecting to install DD-WRT on it, but the stock firmware was so solid that I didn't even have to.

Cons: Everything was rainbows and roses for a year. Then the router's throughput dropped to a craw. Websites taking minutes to load. I power cycled countless times, reset the router, upgraded the firmware, power cycled again and again. I even upgraded my modem to a DOCSIS 3.0 modem from a 2.0, nothing helped. Unfortunately it looks like something physical broke inside the router. Visited ASUS website for warranty info and couldn't find a thing. Very sad, since this was a great router - when it worked.

Other Thoughts: I considered upgrading the the RT-AC68U, but for $180 and with the possibility that the significantly more expensive router could break just like this one after a year pushed me away. I picked up an Apple Airport Extreme AC simply because I've owned a number of them for a multiple years and have never gotten a hardware failure. Sure the throughput isn't a great, but at least it's reliable.

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.
