Pros: For years, my biggest complaint about routers and modems was the barely functional UI's they have. Finally that is starting to change. The UI is modern and elaborate, allows control of many settings, provides a lot of information about the network and devices connected to it. There is even some aesthetic bells and whistles, such as being able to customize the icons of connected devices. A few of the icons are a ROG icon, several smart phone/gaming system/computer/printer icons.
Cons: I wall-mount all of my network devices and this modem does have mounting holes, but the ASUS logo is facing the front of the router so when I mounted this with the logo right side up (front down), the cables are coming out of the top and then have to be routed down behind the device and I don't like it. With other devices, I've always mounted them so the cables hang down out of the bottom.
Overall Review: I bought this to manage my DOCSIS 3.0 XFinity cable internet connection.
Pros: Just receive this modem router 9/15. The design looks very good and solid case. There are lots of settings in the modem control interface, Guest network, parent control, etc.
Cons: The functional of the modem is very disappointed. First day, wifi connection is fine. second day, it starting to have connection issue. Wifi keep dropping and my kids school IPads can't even connect to internet. The wifi on their iPads showing connected but no internet. Only my PC is able to connect to internet. after reboot, all devices are connected to internet. 2 hours later, wifi dropped again and have to restart the modem once again.
Today, same issue but all devices in my house can't even connect to internet even though the status says we connected. Have to restart the modem 3 time today now. It randomly dropping wifi connection. Going to return!!!
Overall Review: I don't recommend this modem.
Pros: -Fast when it works
-Lot of Services
Cons: -Build Quality Questionable
-Warranty Worthless. Requires buying a replacement in order to maintain internet access, as you need to send it back to determine if it can be replaced under warranty
Overall Review: Great product when it works, useless brick otherwise with poor support. Will not buy ASUS again.
After checking back through some old reviews, it appears my issue was similar to others in that the Wifi would shut-off at the router (ie lights off, system settings still claimed radio was enabled, and wifi button would not turn it back on). In each situation a full reset is necessary to return to wifi use.
I had chalked up most of the complaints due to network compatibility in my initial purchase decision but that does not appear to be the issue here. Also, it's not local interference as the wifi is completely off at the router, and not slow or spotty signal.
Pros: This device appears incredibly complicated, if all the settings available from the GUI are any indication ... you'll need to have a four-year degree in engineering to know how to set everything up.
Cons: This worked fine until around nine months in, around the time I upgraded W10 and all the driver settings on my tiny home network (PC + laptop). Now real-time streaming interrupts, interrupts and interrupts ... it took me more than a month to narrow the problem down to the router functionality (signal disruptions happen on both machines, Ethernet and wireless, but not with my laptop operating over other wireless connections).
This problem is worst than you might think: Any network paths that become disrupted will result in having to restart and re-establish the paths -- this has been driving me absolutely NUTS. The problem I'm experiencing includes signal disruptions involving streaming media from .mp4 and .WMF files streamed across the network (PC to laptop) and file paths that are disrupted -- for example, paths to .psc files (again, PC to laptop) that, when disrupted, I have to reboot Outlook multiple, times each time the signal is disrupted, to re-establish the network paths.
Because I do not have the issue when I use my laptop on other wireless connections (in motels), and because I have the same signal disruption issues on my PC as well as my laptop, and because I've had Spectrum cable at my house TWICE to check and adjust the signal ... I've confirmed the problem is surely the cable modem router, and (I think) likely the router functionality (since the device has been tested by my ISP several times).
The worse problem, though, is the technical support. You'll get a lot of emails and instructions to send logs and settings stuff in, and people telling you to change settings that make no sense and don't fix the problem. EVERYONE you'll be dealing with will seem to be struggling with basic English ... even the form I was sent to fill out was created by some sort of Taiwanese version of MS Word. This problem has been going on two months and I'm still waiting for someone to actually show they understand how this product works and how to fix the device.
Overall Review: My advice: Don't buy this product and stick with a known networking brand -- and check to make sure whatever cable modem / router you buy comes with quality technical support beforehand. At least with its networking productions, Asus technical support is "a lot of sound and fury ... signifying nothing."
Pros: Performs as describe with good wifi and cable speed + range. Easy to setup. Hassle free.
Cons: None atm
Overall Review: A great buy.
Pros: ASUS is a good name
Cons: Slow connections
Every hour have to do resets of network
Incompatible with XFINITY
Never had a more unreliable router
Pros: got it all out hooked up call so I call spectrum to get it activated well 4 techs later they said the modem was bad so I was going to RMA it but I said Im going to hook it back up an call the night shift techs...in 15 minutes the modem was running very smooth and fast not a hiccup yet I'm very pleased with the modem
Cons: the modem is on spectrum support list and they couldn't get it working...glad the hackers work 3rd shift thats were all the good techs are
Overall Review: this modem is fast and have no issues with the Intel puma problem it runs above expectation
Cons: Constantly disconnects and reconnects all the time! And yes I have Xfinity/Comcast! It sucks! No "firmware update" available either!
Overall Review: My Asus laptop is a gem.... thought their other products would be also! Wrong!
