The speed an range is amazing, but considering where I'm upgrading from.. 12/3/2019 3:46:42 PM

Pros: Speed, 8 ports, multiple wifi, I mean multiple

Cons: have not figure that one out yet..
actually this thing is very big, make sure you have the space for it.

Overall Review: This thing is supersized in all aspects, actual physical size and functions. It seamlessly connected with my repeaters, and with 2 additional Asus AiMesh AC1750's, I'm certain everything will be impressive..

Exactly what I needed it. 10/15/2019 1:08:27 PM

Pros: Works
String Signal
8 Ethernet Ports

Overall Review: I would recommend this product. At first I thought I bought a dud cause it would only connect for 30 sec then get cut off. Had to reset it a couple of times. Come to find out my ATT fiber router downloaded some firmware not to my knowledge that blocked all routers hooked to it. I had to download some new beta firmware that fixed the problem.

Don't buy this router 7/9/2019 8:54:19 PM

Pros: Worked for 1 year

Cons: Only worked for one year

Overall Review: This is my 2d Asus router I bought it to replace a RT-N750 that also went bad after just over a year. The AC3100 started losing 2.4ghz signal first and the 5ghz appears to be going out as well. I've seen this same issue with many of these reviews and I've always liked the Asus brand but don't buy their routers unless you like to replace them every year. 2 strikes and your out for me no more Asus routers. (Also if this review does not list me as a verified owner it's because I bought an open box model)

Junk. Started dting after 3 months. 4/30/2019 4:03:13 PM

Pros: When it worked, it was fast and had great wi-fi coverage.

Cons: Started dying after 3 months. The 2.4ghz band died and now it seems the 5ghz band is following. Asus' customer support is a joke and trying to get an RMA out of them is like dealing with Comcast.

Overall Review: Avoid at all costs.

Great while it lasted 3/7/2019 12:08:09 PM

Pros: Great Wireless Signal Strength and Speed

Cons: Lasted only 8 months, ASUS refuses to replace router that's under warranty without payment upfront.

Overall Review: Called ASUS support, went through all troubleshooting procedures and was informed this router is under warranty until September. Unfortunately they demand you use express replacement and they want $260 up front to replace a router that's under warranty. I only paid $199 for it new and I'm told I will get a nice refurbished router for that price! All I wanted to do was send the defective router back for service or replacement. I don't need express replacement and don't want to take the chance of being out more money. I will be looking for a different router unless ASUS fixes or replaces this defective router for free.
