Pros: I love(d) this router.
Cons: 1 - Asus knew about the compromised security a year before they fixed it.
2 - Mine died after 5 months. I've tried for days to reach tech support. Their web forms don't work, and I can't reach anyone by phone.
Other Thoughts: I used to be a fan of Asus products. Now, having seen how difficult it is to get support, I'm done with Asus. Their website forms are horrible (for example, AJAX doesn't work on the drop downs, you have to submit an incomplete form to get the drop downs to fill in so that you can complete the form).... then, after you filled it all in and hit submit, you are sent right back to the form with no indication as to what information is missing or is somehow incorrect. All I need is an RMA # and ship to address!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: As a router / AP, it appears to work fine.
Cons: I had high hopes for this router. I have a main router, the RT-AC66U. My plan was to use the RT-N56U as a wireless repeater. I've gone through the support pages, forums, etc... and spent the time to type up my configuration (on both routers) and get ASUS tech support to help out. It's been over a week since I first contacted tech support, and I'm no closer to an answer. The only suggestion they had was to use the AC66U as the repeater. This solution doesn't work well for me, and the N56U is advertised to work as a repeater. Although it misses the mark on having this functionality as an optional 'mode'. I'm really disappointed. Nearly $300 on both routers and tech support has been worthless.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Patriot Autobahn 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model PSF16GLSABUSB
Pros: Seems to work fine so far. I have it plugged into my router as shared network storage
Cons: Runs extremely hot in my router -- too hot to keep your finger on it. May be fine elsewhere.READ FULL REVIEW
