RoG GT-AC5300 11/14/2019 6:30:17 PM

Pros: Tri band, great signal strength.

Works perfect w Merlin 8/19/2019 12:00:09 PM

Pros: This router runs better on airmesh with 3-5 joining nodes and or repeaters with the 32 managing all network traffic. I'm running 4 nodes with other vender RP and it is solid as a rock with 1080's, outdoor cams and other home wireless devices, I have to give this router a top score on wireless when configured correctly. Nothing but Asus for me now, airmesh upgrade and now more coverage. ty.

Cons: check antenna's, get ready to be careful and hope you don't have to crack it open to tighten a stupid clasp on the other side. Just be careful. We placed a small fan next to the router for extra cooling. Merlin seems to run best in our network.

Overall Review: With Airmesh Asus has evened the score. The ability to run other firmware also is a major factor in our networks. This router is reliable, hot but works flawlessly with other routers, switches, and/or repeaters and bridges. We pigtailed a few access points on two media bridges and were pulling 300 down with zero issues. I'm investing in Airmesh in hopes it will wave my future. Didn't go with ceiling mounts due to construction so we are satisfied in finding an ideal spot to place our high grade system.

Poor construction and unreliable 7/22/2019 7:47:00 AM

Pros: Powerful Wifi
Supports AI-Mesh (not a big deal for me)
8 LAN ports
Port aggregation supported

Cons: Unreliable
Unpredictable
Poor quality construction
WAN port quick entirely after 8 months.

Overall Review: My recommendation is to stay far away from this router. It boasts many great features, but the quality is not there. Certainly not the quality I expect from Asus.

I returned my first GT-AC5300 because one of the antenna was broken at the connector. This was out of a sealed box.

My second GT-AC5300 did okay for 8 months, aside from the occasional dropping of the WAN connection which baffled me at the time. However, after 8 months the cause was apparent. The WAN connector gave up totally. No rebooting, no firmware updates, no resetting of the modem made any difference. It is a useless, expensive paperweight.

I am moving away from Asus as a result of this experience and seeing so many others having problems with this. Asus, like so many other tech companies these days, will not admit there is a problem. They supposedly fix their problems with a new product release.

Router was fast good range till it slowly died. Poor ventilation probably 5/24/2019 8:19:32 AM

Pros: super good range, fast set up and fast boot. Love having direct 8 ports at the router rather than an external switch...but you'll see why that is bad

Cons: mine died in less than a year. first, port 6 died and i could not get a connection. There's 8 so no big deal. Then more issues; my ethernet ports were capped at 100mbps sometimes for no reason. It'll work if you unplug from computer and replug in randomly...like 1/4 times then it'll work. My unit is fully updated, tried factory reset too. It happens to multiple wired computers on the network not only one connection so it isn't the cable or the computers. Very disappointing it didn't last a year. I have ATT Fiber at 1000mbps and plugged directly to the att box I had no issues.

Overall Review: During the RMA process, the rep was very condescending like I would have damaged the lan port myself. I get you have to say that physical damage isn't covered, but you dont have to tell me 4 times during the RMA process. It's a stationary router, not an iphone. Also they don't pay for shipping back. So I have to pay out of pocket for the premium $400 router?! Come on, I should have got a protection plan from newegg or something else. Routers these days don't last!

Dear HENRY D.,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We would like to offer our deepest apologies for the trouble you had with your ASUS product. I agree that this is a very good router and has a lot of features for all your needs. We regret to hear that it stopped functioning and we're willing to assist you with it. I would also like to extend my apologies for the perceived condescending tone that our agents used during your interaction. Based on the product warranty not all devices get 2-way shipping as such, for some devices you would need to cover the shipping to the facility. We hope that this experience has not diminished your faith in our brand and that you will continue being apart of our ASUS family.

Garbage 3/19/2019 1:53:23 AM

Pros: When it was working, it was fast and reliable

Cons: The upload speed dropped to 2 Mbps, and the 5ghz band stopped working, the only way to fix it was to power unit off, I had to do this 3 times a week. I got tired of it, so I bought a Linksys EA9500 and have no problems with it, upload speed went to 20 Mbps and 5ghz bands work fine. 5ghz speed went from 150 Mbps on Asus to 320mbps on Ea9500

Overall Review: I always had problems with the Asus routers, this my last purchase of Asus

Dear Marshall M,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We would like to offer our deepest apologies for the trouble you had with your ASUS product. All ASUS products undergo intensive quality control, testing and inspections, as such what you've experienced is a random issue and was by no means intentional or representative of our brand. Did you try resetting the device to factory settings? Updating the firmware could also potentially rectify the issue.

Terrible quality control 2/27/2019 3:18:19 PM

Pros: - great features, good 5 GHZ performance
- AIMesh feature is nice, but I ended up not needing it due to excellent range

Cons: - 2.4ghz channel died
- Terrible support
- Terrible quality control
- Terrible firmware

Overall Review: LIke so many others, my 2.4ghz channel died. THis is VERY common if you read REAL reviews and forums. It seems like bad hardware, not firmware as it doesn't matter what version of firmware you're using. Asus does NOT send advanced replacements if the unit has to be replaced (which most do because the 2.4ghz channel breaks and is important). so you will be left without internet for a while. Tech support is not useful and even just to escalate to a high level technician to look at your logs to verify an issue they already know exists, takes 48 hours.

Never buying an Asus router again and despite some of their reliability of older models, do NOT buy newer tri band from Ausu, unless you can afford the time and the headaches of not having internet for quite some time.

Great Router. AI Mesh with a tri-band is amazing. 1/28/2019 1:24:21 PM

Pros: Great features:
Trend Micro Integration is one of the best Parental Control implementations I have found in a router.
Three fast wireless 2.5, 5 & 5.
Works well with ASUS Bridging solutions

Cons: This is my second router. The first one I got rebooted ever 30 minutes or so. I had to return it to NewEgg. Easy enough process. The new one had the same problem. I am suspecting this is a firmware issue.

<UPDATE After 2 years> Note: I am updating this after owning the router for a few years. All Firmware issues hav been fixed and the software for the router is FANTASTIC now. Best router I ever owned.

Overall Review: I am very disappointed. I had the old 5300 for a while but I drooped it so I decided to replace it with this. I have another Asus router the has the same broadcom chip and the bridge connection runs at 1700. Brilliant.

But two routers with the same problem??? If I don't hear back from Asus on tech support I will be returning this.

I do not recommend buying this until it has aged.

Only reason it has 2 eggs is because I have had such luck with Asus routers in the past.
