Pros: - When it worked, for one day! - awesome wifi speed and range through out my whole house. - Interface was simple

Cons: - Waaaaay too much trouble for the price. I should not have so many issues. - Wifi began to drop. First it was 2.4ghz then 5ghz after restarts. Devices could not see 2.4ghz for some time then after restart only 5ghz would work. Tried connecting my droid and poof the router would drop connectivity and reset. I factory reset it and same issues. I tried installing another firmware (currently on latest) but would not allow me to downgrade. Factory reset & configured 3x. Now, the 2.4 LED does not light up anymore at all even when 2.4 does work. - This issue has been reported in many forums. Usually resolved by downgrading. - I have tried connecting many different devices (2 droids, iPad, Kindle, Asus Laptop) with same results. - Connection was stable over wired (until router would restart on its own) - No interference should cause this issue. Previous router worked great just wanted to upgrade to something better?

Overall Review: Hopefully I can get this replaced. Can't return for refund as it has been over 3 months since I purchased it, in anticipation of upgrading wiring and systems in my home, but only got to it now. I am a Asus fanboy for years with their MBs and video cards but this is my first Asus router - sigh!
