This review is from: ASUS USB-AC55 Dual-band Wireless-AC1300 USB 3.0 Wi-Fi Adapter IEEE 802.11a, IEEE 802.11b, IEEE 802.11g, IEEE 802.11n, IEEE 802.11ac, IPv4 USB 3.0 802.11a : 6,9,12,18,24,36,48,54 Mbps 802.11b : 1, 2, 5.5, 11 Mbps 802.11g : 6,9,12,18,24,36,48
Pros: Come with USB 3.0 cradle. With direct line of sight, achieving the advertised 867 Mbps connection. I replaced my ASUS USB-N53 with this because I bought an AC router (ASUS RT-AC68P) and the pass through speed tripled. Makes sense since the USB-N53 is only 300Mbps/band and this thing is 867 Mbps. These looked just like the retail one I bought earlier. If you have an AC router, you need to get an AC USB adapter to take advantage of the AC speed.
Cons: Use the driver software that comes on the CDROM. I tried the one on the ASUS sight and had no luck. Again, works fine on Windows 10 with the disk provided.
Other Thoughts: Good deal at $35. Look at other AC 1300 adapters. They are usually over $50.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Price is nice for all the features on an AC1900 router. I bought this to replace my N 750 router and I like this RT-AC68P. I like it a lot. Has better range. I also had an ASUS RP-N53 repeater (N600) and it played well with it as well. Was thinking about getting the ASUS RP-AC68 repeater for $151, but then realized, I can just buy another RT-AC68P for $99 and use it as a peater. So I bought a second and set it up as a repeater. I really like the Roaming Assistant feature on these. When the signal get low on one (you moving through the house), the repeater drops you off and the main router picks you up or vice versa (best signal). Was able to hook up computer upstairs directly to repeater RT-AC68P via Ethernet cable so it doubles as a repeater for upstairs and a AP. As a main router it has been working great. If you have a large space and need a repeater, buy two at this price and make one a repeater!
Cons: None so far.
Wish the repeater function (when set up as a repeater) also worked on the guest network, but that is probably asking too much.
Pros: I have three of these running Core i7 4470s, 8GB 1.5v & 1.65V RAM, Radeon HD 7870s. They work great. No frills, but as long as you aren't wanting to run two video cards, it gets the job done and does it well. The BIOS are nice! Really like this board.
