Pros: It is definitely a nice-looking unit with a great set of cool features.

Cons: Performs very poorly. Leaving the wi-fi aside, the machine has problems even with routing the local Ethernet traffic. There are lost packages and temporary slowdowns even between the internal gigabit Ethernet ports in the local network! The DHCP is much slower then in other routers, to the points that some devices report time out, before even getting the IP address (even on LAN!). Machines wired to the router sporadically loose network connection for unknown reasons and rebooting the router solves the problem only for a while. Configuring this machine is a total headache. After changing any of the options the router needs to be rebooted which take over a minute. Now imagine adding 30 mac addresses to the filtering table, and you are talking about a 45 minutes job. Note that the mac filtering is done for Ethernet and WIFi so you have to add even the mac addresses of machines directly wired to the router. I spent around two hours for the full configuration, so be patient if you plan to do anything going beyond a basic setup. The unit does not have standard front lights indicating status of its Ethernet ports so you never know what is really going on.

Other Thoughts: Total disaster. If you need something really working forget about this unit and consider Asus RT-NI6 (if you don't need the 5.4GHz WiFi)
