Pretty... has some cool features...


Port forwarding doesn't work no matter which stock firmware I used. Trying to install DD-WRT on it just bricked it even though it is supposedly supported (according to Newegg).

Other Thoughts:

I've been very pleased with other Asus products, but this product has proved to be something of a hassle. I don't think I'll be trying any other Asus Routers unless this is resolved. I'll stick to Cisco.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Bytesunfish,

Please contact me so that I can try to help you get port forwarding working for you. You can reach me at (ref#1043-3584) and let me know what exactly is going on. Will your settings not save? Or do you set it up, but still have problems with the ports?
I appreciate any information you can provide.
