ASUS EA-N66 Dual-Band Wireless-N900, 3 in 1 Access Point/Repeater/Gigabit Ethernet Adapter IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n 1 x RJ-45 Ethernet port Up to 450Mbps downlink + 450Mbps uplink Wireless
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Easy to set up.

Cons: When using the Asus EA-N66 in "Access Point Mode" it will often pass its own IP address to a DHCP client (wired or wireless) as the default gateway, blocking access to the LAN router.
The only solution is to unplug the EA-N66 and allow the DHCP client to request a new LAN IP.

Other Thoughts: A firmware upgrade could easily fix this problem making the EA-N66 a great device. Otherwise it is a good wireless access point.

ASUS Laptop A55A-AH51-BU Intel Core i5 3210M (2.50GHz) 4GB Memory 750GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 4000 15.6

Pros: A very good buy. Purchasing from Newegg is always great.

Cons: Windows 8 restore OS does not function. I could not reinstall OS to a SSD. I had to purchase Windows 8 to install on SSD.

Other Thoughts: I planned to install an Intel SSD in the notebook. I used the Asus Backtracker software to create an OS restore on a 16 GB USB flash drive. Problems started when the restore flash drive program ran 15 minutes. The program would lock up after the new partitions were created on the SSD. I tried the restore on a new conventional 500 GB drive, with the same problem. I created a new restore flash drive with Backtracker. Everything failed to create functioning Windows 8 partitions on any drive. I talked to Asus tech support many times. The problem was never solved. The problem seems to be on the OS restore programs on the drive Asus notebook because the restore (F9) does not function either.
I solved my problem myself by purchasing and installing Windows 8 OEM on the Intel SSD and using the drivers from the Asus web site. The support at Asus was always friendly and supportive, but offered no solution other then sending the A55A back to Asus.
