Great Entry WiFi 6 Router 9/19/2020 7:58:34 AM

Overall Review: Great entry router for WiFi 6. While there aren't a lot of applications for it yet, this router when coupled with another ASUS router in mesh mode will give excellent WiFi coverage for a large area. And you have the benefit of being ready for the future as more WiFi 6 devices hit the market.

Connection Issues! 9/5/2020 12:10:39 PM

Overall Review: I'm a bit surprised that I'm asked to leave a review before I can return an item, but if that's what they want... This router keeps dropping connections to nearly all my devices regardless to which band or settings that I use. My old, cheap Netgear router is more reliable at this point. When the Asus router does work properly, the speeds are super fast and it has a good range. The user interface is nicely laid out and built in firewall is nice. But, what good is that if it won't stay connected? I'm asking for a refund.

Great router! 8/3/2020 8:48:05 AM

Overall Review: It was extremely easy to set up, when you set a password remember to restart the router on the website provided to set the router up itself. Password won't take effect until then.

Cheap and good 7/30/2020 4:18:11 PM

Pros: Great range. Merlin firmware capable.

Cons: 2X2

Overall Review: Bought this to replace 2 old but functioning AC68U’s. Noticed significant improvement in signal strength and range. Running latest Merlin. 2 months into it and rock solid connectivity and performance so far. Running mixed AC/N clients. I have no AX clients so can’t comment on that performance.

Pros: Pros: easily setup and linked with my gateway.
Reduced my latency on WiFi and Ethernet connections.
QoS has reduced a lot of buffering challenges I had before with streaming.
Adaptive 5G and 2.4G is great when I ambulate through my property.

Cons: Cons: adminstrative control could have been more dynamic.
Worse device control on my network than my ISP app.

Overall Review: I'd recommend it for a budget entry into WiFi 6.

A nice wifi router but had issues with print server 7/16/2020 10:57:30 PM

Overall Review: Purchased this router to upgrade a RT-AC56U. Overall the experience went well and the wifi performance was fine. However I was not able to connect my printer. No issue with the AC56U, but the AX56U could only connect to USB storage, not my printer. Upgraded to the latest firmware and still wouldn't work.
