Kind of fast. 8/21/2020 3:10:53 PM

Pros: Its very pretty

Cons: So far its the exact speed and performance of my service provider standard equipment despite any wired and wireless connections

Overall Review: No real improvement over my service provider equipment but i order a special nic to see if i can get more out of it.
My motherboard has dual network cards, supports 2 separate connections router is supposed to put out 2 separate connections, not even bridging the connections brings performance boost let alone speed

Decent router but I was not blown away 8/20/2020 9:22:33 AM

Pros: Great looking router.
Excellent GUI interface
Decent range

Cons: Range was not as amazing as I expected based on cnet or pcmag reviews .. doesnt reach the end of my driveway (my lot is very average)
Streaming was awful out of the box, Netflix was totally unwatchable. I enabled Adaptive QoS .. still it was awful.
Finally I enabled Traditional QoS (instead of Adaptive), and my Netflix starting working perfectly (as it had been with my older TP-Link AC1750)
One of the 5GHz bands showed up with only 2 bars of radio strength

Overall Review: Overall I am definitely disappointed. I expected the range to be much better, and streaming should have been perfect out of the box.
I decided to update the firmware, but needed to follow the manual process, as the other method did not work ... Just to be sure, I reached out to ASUS support, the support staff were very good and responsive, courteous, helpful.
I expect it to work perfectly going forward with the latest firmware

This is a great router when it is on sale it's even better. 8/19/2020 7:19:52 AM

Pros: The square footage range it says it has isn't a lie. I have set this up at my parents place and my girlfriends parents place so they can have access in their backyard as well as their house. The range is a little overkill sure but no service interruptions.
Performs exactly as you expect a router should. And the instructions are straight forward.

Cons: It isn't really a con, it just may not be something everyone thinks of when they get it out of the box. I had to do a firmware update on this router before the range wasn't spotty.

Overall Review: If you need a decent range this may even be overkill. I recommend waiting for a sale if this is overkill. Probably the best router I have experienced personally and even recommended it to family. Also really enjoy the aesthetic of it.

Perfect replacement for Provider Wifi 8/17/2020 5:19:09 AM

Pros: I’ve been running the ASUS RT-AC5300 for just over a week now, and both the signal strength and speed of wifi have been consistently at the maximum that the service provides on the wired Ethernet access. A large improvement compared with those ‘pods’ provided by my provider - this one device covers the same range as three pods and offer full speed instead of 15% of the speed. Even better: my wife isn’t complaining about the internet speed on her laptop now.

Cons: The footprint size might interfere with some setups - I’ve ensured I had a space for a larger unit that wouldn’t impact my space. An option to mount this unit to a wall would have been nice.

Overall Review: Highly recommend for those that needier power and reliability in spaces that presently require pods.

Not As Powerful as they calim 7/29/2020 7:31:04 AM

Pros: VPN Client

Cons: They say this thing is powerful up to 5000 sqft. I live in a 2100 sqft home and I can't get much of a signal on the far side of the house. Only keeping it for the VPN client.

Overall Review: I would not recommend this router and unless your close to te router.
