1 out of 5 eggsbad quality, even worse customer service

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: none

Cons: it was broken two weeks later. I contacted the repair service and I need to pay the shipment for repair it. And the customer service attitude is very bad. No longer use any asus products any more. Again, the customer service is really really bad.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't Buy This Waste of Time and Money

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: Absolutely None

Cons: I changed the router IP address logged in to the router using the new IP address. Then I changed the SSID and restarted the router. Stopped broadcasting it's signal after that and connecting to the router using ethernet didn't help either. The router IP apparently changed again and this time to some unknown address. Doing an IP scan didn't help either as I couldn't find the router.

4 out of 5 eggsNice router, works well with Tomato

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: Installation was straightforward. Coverage is good in my moderately large house. Quite reliable so far. Works with Tomato firmware.

Cons: Asus' rebate procedure is problematic.

Other Thoughts: Having difficulties which I attributed to my old router, I chose this model because it supports Tomato firmware, was well-reviewed and reasonably priced. Various sites give various information about how to install and use Tomato, and if Newegg permitted me to do so I would post a link to the site which I found most helpful with this particular router. Can't do that, but be assured it wasn't too difficult to find.

5 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: Used this as my main wireless router for over a year. The ethernet ports are 1Gbps and the wireless is as rated 300Mbps up and downstream. I upgraded to an ac router but use this as a wireless repeater to a guest network (Will have half the bandwidth 150Mbps). Very reliable and wireless doesnt drop at all.

Cons: Single core CPU on router... if that means something to anyone. The range is certainly a little smaller as compared to its competitors but not bad at all.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat VALUE, okay PERFORMANCE

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: Great price for a fairly well featured router. It looks pretty good, and would be alright to have on a desk. Can run DD-WRT. Replaceable antenna, however that would only be required in a P2P setup.

Cons: For as good as it looks, it's very flimsy. Be careful not to screw the antenna on too tight or you'll loosen the bolts.

Stock firmware is kind of useless, hardly works. I ONLY recommend this router for use with DD-WRT, if you don't plan on using that then don't get this.

Other Thoughts: I'm using these with DD-WRT in a repeater-bridge setup. 8 of them cover a 30,000 square foot shop, with full reception everywhere (no walls, just one big open space). They've been up for months none of them have required a single reset.

5 out of 5 eggsReview #1

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 at Newegg. Works fine, even in an RF environment (ham radio), stable with no need to reboot or do anything in the past two months.

Cons: None - I wrote in Feb that it was reducing speed. Turned out it was the computer/microsoft and a RF power saving feature that would not go back to full speed after ramping down. Changed the power saver settings and it stays at a full 58 M connection now

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

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.

Beware of the computer/OS making it seem to not work right :(,

1 out of 5 eggsStupid device

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: Unfortunately no

Cons: Constantly loses network. Not working properly in repeater mode.

Other Thoughts: In repeater mode constantly loses the main network. All the settings are correct, the firmware has been updated. But it is not working. Normally worked only half an hour once. I'm not ready to do the retuning every half hour. Last year I used the device from a competing manufacturer "D -****" was worth it 2 times cheaper, worked very well once configured. This is my first and last device the ASUS Wireless. Forced to return back. I do not recommend to use as a repeater, it simply does not work. As the router is not checked.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Sergei,

Thank your for your time in posting a review about our products. On behalf of ASUS, we would like to apologize for any inconvenience this has caused you. Let me assist you. We are sorry to hear your experience with the unit. Have you tried reconfiguring the wireless set up and resetting the system to factory settings to try to fix the issue? If there is anything else that I can help or assist you with please email me at customerloyalty@asus.com and place the case #N150651039 in the subject line for reference.

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.

Manufacturer Response:
