Stopped working at 18 monthes, difficult to get an RMA 1/6/2020 4:07:13 PM

Pros: Nice UI, can turn off LEDs

Cons: 2.4Ghz Died after 18 monthes

Overall Review: I like Asus routers, they have a nice UI, but I've experienced the same issue now after 18 months that I see a lot of users have, the 2.4ghz band has stopped working.

To make matters worse, so far it's been impossible for me to RMA it. I've been trying to submit the online for a week in multiple browsers, and I always get "your serial number "undefined" has already had an RMA #"undefined", clearly some kind of script error. I tried online chat, but ever time I try to connect to a live person, it shows an error. I don't see any other way to open a ticket, I'm still trying to get this resolved, very frustrating to deal with this on top of an expensive failed router

Setup was easy but died after 1 month 5/13/2019 8:14:57 PM

Pros: Setup was quick and easy

Cons: After 1 month of use:
The router no longer works on any band
The router's reset button also doesn't work anyone (I have tried holding the button down)
It doesn't broadcast any signal anyone

Overall Review: No, this router literally stopped working within 1 month. I know it's not my internet because other routers work fine.

Best Router out for the price and with loads of features 4/11/2019 9:12:31 AM

Pros: Wifi Coverage is excellent with this router and I notice a major difference on file transfers while on the LAN network. The gaming network feature is exceptional when it comes to online gaming. I'm amazed how it gives me the lowest possible ping time. Also being able to make adjustments via the iPhone app is greatly appreciated.

This replaced my Netgear N600 Dual band router and I never looked back.

Cons: Personally, the appearance on this router isn't pleasant to look at but when compared to others out there I will deal with it.

I just place it out of sight and it's of mind.

Woked Great for 8 Months 3/2/2019 4:42:12 PM

Pros: - Great GUI
- Solid wifi and USB connectivity

Cons: - short life

Overall Review: My 2.4 GHz band no longer connects after 8 months. Signal is present, but devices will not connect. Multiple power cycles, factory default resets, and updating to the latest firmware failed to resolve issue. A quick forum search shows multiple users have had issues with parts dying likely due to high board temperatures. Hoping for a positive result with ASUS warranty return.

Died After 2 Days 2/7/2019 5:13:04 PM

Pros: - Died within Newegg's RMA window, so I didn't have to pay for shipping out of my own pocket to RMA a defective product to Asus and get back a refurbished router.

Cons: - None

No 2.4g band in one year 1/25/2019 8:38:38 AM

Pros: As a router

Cons: I use it as an AiMesh Node, and don't have the 2.4g band in one year. Out of warranty and Asus won't bother to help me.
