Very fast when it works 4/29/2020 9:03:14 AM

Pros: Speed is great.
Very easy to set up.

Cons: I have to re-boot this router about once a week to solve printing problems.

Overall Review: I have to re-boot this router about once a week to solve printing problems. I do have an older HP printer that is hooked via the RJ45 jack. My smart socket also stops working occasionally and I have to re-add it to the network. I have updated the router to the latest firmware.

I have 3 other Asus routers that work great. They are older models.

Dear Robert N,

It's regrettable to hear you've encountered issues with your router. You can change the channel bandwidth of each band of 2.4 GHz to 20 MHz, and for 5GHz please select 60MHz. Test each of the channels first for improved stability. If you’re still experiencing issues, with the latest firmware please send any feedback via ASUSWRT(ASUS router Web UI), or ASUS Router App, or send a tweet or direct message to our Official ASUS North America Support twitter at AsusHelpUS. We’ll do our best to provide a quick resolution to your case. Your feedback is important as it helps with improvements to ASUS Support channels. Your case for reference is N200488922.

Thank you for choosing ASUS!

Best Regards,
Adrian

Best Entry-level wifi 6 on the market 4/18/2020 11:57:32 AM

Pros: -
- Cool router temps, doesn't get hot
- Best processor compared to competitors
- Higher than average client accessibility
- Excellent software support, and customization
- Significant wireless coverage

Cons: -
- Non-detachable antennas
- As of April 2020, no Merlin support
- Features only useful for a small part of demographics

Overall Review: This is an excellent entry-level router for those looking to get AX bands. Asus support software is best-in-class. The software does a great job of explaining each feature and allows users to easily configure their home network - makes the user feel empowered. This router outshines its competitors in the Netgear Nighthawk AX, and LInksys AX3----- series. This is a great unit for a small home or large apartment. It also is friendly converting older model routers as an access point (so don't get rid of that old router just yet).

Would recommend for: small homes, medium size condos, large apartments; users with high-end smart phones capable of utilizing AX bands; and those looking to leverage an access point

Wouldn't recommend for: Power users seeking for a little more configuration; medium to large homes; casual users or non-tech savvy individuals; and those with a lot of smart devices (get a quad+ band instead).

Easy setup, but may not work with your network 4/2/2020 8:42:55 AM

Pros: - Great router packed with features
- Excellent price point
- Easy to setup

Cons: - Caused my Netgear CM1000 modem to simply stop working while it was plugged in
- Unable to use it with my gigabit service.

Individually all components of my network worked without a hitch. Transfer speeds between devices were incredible and near the theoretical limits. However, when I connected the modem to the router, my modem would simply shut down. Tried working with Netgear and Asus, and Asus said to just send it back. RMA'd and got a TP-Link AX20, which has worked.

Overall Review: I cannot determine if the problem was the router's fault or my ISP. After a firmware update the modem and router would kinda play nice, but the modem was resetting every few minutes which was a headache. The new router does not have this issue.

Easy to set up and great for novice or pro use 3/17/2020 9:30:58 AM

Pros: - plug in and go; super easy set up
- all necessary pieces come in box (RJ45 to connect with modem)
- easy to navigate UI with simple and advanced settings for all user levels
- great speeds and range

I haven't yet had the chance to play with half of the settings available yet... I am looking forward to seeing how the VPN works out when I get more time to. So far so good, though: Does everything I was expecting right out of the box and build quality feels great

Cons: - none yet... I will update this review if/when that changes

Overall Review: Would definitely recommend... Not the cheapest router you could buy - but you don't want to go too cheap in this category of hardware! Grab it on sale and you will not regret a thing.

Awesome WiFi 6 Media Bridge 2/13/2020 8:58:29 PM

Pros: Great firmware.
Easy to setup (setting up as a Media Bridge took just a few clicks).
Super fast with WiFi 6 (Primary router is a AX88U)
I now have Gigabit Ethernet, with truly Gigabit speeds, in another room without having to run a wire.
Very stable so far.

Cons: None so far

Overall Review: I haven't used it as a router, but it runs the same firmware as my primary router, an AX88U. I'm sure it would be a great router for small to medium home networks. And it's a great price for WiFi 6 support.
