Performs pretty well when its up.


I purchased this router to use as an access point to replace a G Linksys. The new firmware ( has fixed some bugs, cleaned up the interface and simplified configuration. However it has done nothing to improve stability. It locks up about once a week where a reboot will not revive it. It requires a full reset to default to be accessable. The main issue here, aside from continually reconfiguring it, is that the return to default loses Access Point mode and returns the address to which conflicts with my router. I have had more lockups with this Asus in two months than I had with the Linksys in four years!

Other Thoughts:

I may have to throw it away and invest in a more reliable product. Hopefully Asus will solve the reliability issues that have been reported by far too many users or at least offer an upgrade path.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I apologize for the performance of your N53 router. What do you mean when you say "full reset"? I would recommend a firmware restore by following this video: please make sure that when you are connecting to the router you use a wired connection.

If this doesn't help, you can contact me at (ref#1043-2394) and I will see if there is something more I can do for you.
