"Great possibilities, poor real life results"1.5 starson by techmember
Pros: Has potential to be a very strong performing router with the hardware included.
Cons: Frequent dropouts & freezes with pc's and macs
Summary: I really wanted to like this router! Based on the hardware alone it had excellent potential. I'd read the reviews of the stock firmware, but being a dd-wrt firmware user I thought I had a good chance of overcoming the problems people were having with the great past results I've had by loading the open source dd-wrt firmware.
For the first few months I ran the stock ASUS firmware experiencing sporadic issues. Then I upgraded to dd-wrt and the issues remained which leads me to believe the lockups and dropouts are caused by over-heating or poor quality components. If anyone had solved these issues with this model please let me know. Until then this unit is getting shelved.
