Tripled Throughput

ASUS RT-AC68P Wireless-AC1900 Dual Band Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n AiProtection with Trend Micro for Complete Network Security-Certified Refurbished

Pros: Easy to set up and increased in-house throughput from 17 - 65 mbps. What's not to like?

Cons: Did not come with the cat 5 cable. Lucky I had several on hand, but still, even though a refurb, this was disconcerting right out of the box.

Overall Review: Looks good and I use a vertical, 45 degree and horizontal antenna orientation and this works well with the three antennas.

Most Critical Review

Worked for ONE Day

ASUS PRIME B660-PLUS D4 LGA 1700 (Intel 12th & 13th Gen) ATX Motherboard (PCIe 4.0, DDR4, 3xM.2 slots, 2.5Gb LAN, rear USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 Type-C, front USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C)
ASUS PRIME B660-PLUS D4 LGA 1700 (Intel 12th & 13th Gen) ATX Motherboard (PCIe 4.0, DDR4, 3xM.2 slots, 2.5Gb LAN, rear USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 Type-C, front USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C)

Pros: I've used Asus for almost a decade, which is why I bought this one.

Cons: Less than 24 hours after finishing installing and using the motherboard for surfing, games reading email etc. I went in to check BIOS version and it said no bootable devices found and the system shut down. I went to Asus on line and after having followed every recovery tool/method and removing many items, I have yet to even get to BIOS. NOTHING worked and this is one of many systems I've built. All I get is the red/orange/white Q-LEDs. but the green Q-LED (which is BOOT) Flashes for a millisecond then the system crashes. AND then it starts again, same finish, repeats with not even any work on Asus CrashFree BIOS 3 used as directed in every USB slot on the board. To add insult to injury, Asus has zero repair centers anywhere within 616 miles of my home near Washington DC and those it finds are listed in what appears to Chinese.

Overall Review: I will not by another Asus motherboard and need to return this one ASAP.

Works Perfectly

Pros: Simply put they work, were very inexpensive and free shipping. Got here quickly. What's not to like. Had to replace one from another source so bought two.

Cons: None

Overall Review: I keep turning people on to Newegg because of deals like this.
