4 out of 5 eggsAs expected

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: Works well for now, just set it up, better than the one I had before that I bought for the same price

Cons: I was able to set up the initial encryption, yet after the encryption the internet based software freezes and the phone-tech cant figure out why either.

Other Thoughts: It works

4 out of 5 eggsGood for DD-WRT

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: Hardware seems very reliable.

Cons: The included firmware is absolute hogwash. It would cause sporadic reboots, wireless drops, and the web panel was generally inaccessible 3/4 the time.

Other Thoughts: I was about to RMA it but instead tried DD-WRT and it seemed to resolve all issues. I will give it a 4/5 as the hardware seems excellent but Asus definitely cut some corners with their software on this. I would definitely recommend as a cheap router for use with DD-WRT.

4 out of 5 eggsso far so good

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: RPSMA antenna connectors
relatively high-gain antennas stock
it's not shaped like a half-used bar of soap

Cons: it doesn't like to play nice when acting as chained repeaters to extend a legacy 802.11b network. i don't know if this is something that is just a limitation of the ui-selectable settings or what. when acting as a single repeater, everything is fine, but when chained, the link between the new devices seems to be established at a rate spec exceeding the 11b capacity and periodic packet loss occurs. I just set the local device to AP mode and ran a cable to it. i should have done that anyway, really.

the shipped firmware doesn't play nice with password managers (won't allow user/pass pasting), but there's a firmware update that fixes this.

Other Thoughts: i bought two of these to extend a computer network over an existing 450' coaxial drop in part of a MATV system. this was accomplished using two Holland DPD2 satellite diplexers and custom fabricated impedance matching/DC block networks to adapt to the 75 ohm system. RSSI at the end of the drop is about -50dBm, ~400ppm packet loss. not bad for <2150MHz diplexers and old kinked and stretched coaxial carrying 2400MHz! link throughput is around 30Mbps, but my WAN connection is only 1Mbps on good days, so wtfe.

i'll see how these last before i get rid of all these stupid old ME102's

2 out of 5 eggsJust Another 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: it does what it suppose to do which is a router

Cons: it said that it has a range extender but it has the same range as my current router, so if anyone bought this for the range extender do reconsider because you will be disappointed.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Wifi Repeater or Wired Extender

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: What's cool about this product is that you don't need to flash any third party firmware to get repeating or wired extending features. Everything is built in and specifically what this router is designed for.

Cons: None

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Router! -1 star for poor documentation. Love the 3 Guest Networks!!

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: Incredible coverage, easy to set-up but has very complex options too for the nerdy type. I live in an apt building and I share my Wifi with 4 others. One person is about 64ft from me and through 9 walls (18 sheets of 1/2" drywall) can max out my internet speed (16Mbps DL). We have 11 devices running out of 5 apts with zero problems (1-PS4, 1-printer, 1-Smart TV, 3-cells, 1 table, 4 PCs). The Guest network (3) is great for sharing, allowing you to restrict access to your intranet. Multiple scheduling/filters to restrict kids use. I use MAC filtering to limit which devices can connect. Has some built in monitoring tools, wish it could monitor usage by MAC or Guest Network.

Cons: Poor documentation, QOS seems simple to set up but gives me warning messages which are not documented anywhere, and appears to NOT work as planned. Other complex settings are not explained very well if at all, for this I took back one star.

Other Thoughts: I've always liked Linksys/Cisco so I bought a new one at $120, the guest network DID NOT even have encryption! Took it back and bought this Asus at a fraction of the cost. I wish Asus made cable modems too, I'd buy one. I don't usually do reviews but I was so impressed with this Asus that I felt obligated. This is the best router I have seen since the old days of Linksys WRT54GL. Previous router was a top of the line NetGear turned out to be junk. It's such a relief to find a GREAT router again.

2 out of 5 eggsworks half the time

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
easy setup

Cons: As soon as the firmware was updated it asked myself to log into the account ,but i never made one or have any information of one
Signal would drop from time to time and this is 30 mins after opening the box

Other Thoughts: route only gives out 2.4 ghz if you are looking for 5 ghz this is not a product for you also beware with updating the fireware from asus.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Long,

Thank you for your time on posting this review, we are sorry to hear your experience with the router's performance. Please allow me to assist you.

Please try the steps below to try to improve the router's performance.

For the best wireless signal transmission between the wireless router and the network devices connected to it, ensure that you:

* You may try changing the Channel bandwidth to boost the frequency of 2.4 GHz to 20 MHz and control channel of 1, 6 or 11. For the Channel bandwidth to boost the frequency of 5GHz for the bandwidth, please select 60MHz, and the control channel 161.
* Place the wireless router in a centralized area for a maximum wireless coverage for the network devices.
* Keep the device away from metal obstructions and away from direct sunlight.
* Keep the device away from #24;0#24;.11g or #24;0MHz only Wi-Fidevices, #24;.#24;GHz computer peripherals, Bluetooth devices, cordless phones, transformers, heavy-duty motors, fluorescent lights, microwave ovens, refrigerators, and other industrial equipment to prevent signal i

Pros: Using as a wireless access point with a Belkin N600 router. It took a bit to set it up but works well. First attempt was to use it as a relay but the range was not extend very far.

Cons: Not very good as a relay.
