Pros Easy to set up, by far exceeds Netgear or D Link nonsense. Excellent range, rather than sending a broad 360 signal it "targets" each device.
Cons Finicky with the web based setup but after some simple configuration practice, works great.
Summary I have had 6 different routers, this router is by FAR the best for home office and gaming applications. Having dual band already built in, slim design and RELIABLE, cannot ask for more. Top notch well designed unit.!
Pros Very long rage for the 2.4Ghz, and fantastic speed for the 5Ghz network. Allows you to customize almost every aspect of the system (DHCP, NAT, Virtual server and more). The USB ports add the functionality of a network printer and a NAS.
Cons The web user interface could use some improvement (and an overview by a native English speaker...) and is a bit confusing.
Summary Could have been perfect if the asministration web site was improved. Also, the first unit I bought was defective. It was easily replaced by a new one, but since I'm not the only user who complains about this, ut us important to notice this issue.
Pros Speed, style, ease of set up. Throughput is amazing.
Cons No VPN support. So great appliance for the family not very good for the way I use it.
Summary We have a mixed device environment; Multiple Rokus, Kindles, iTouch, iPhones, laptops, desktops all connecting through this device. The streaming through Roku or for our games is vastly improved (speed and picture quality). I spend alot of time working when I am at home so the lack of VPN support was a key miss for me. I purchased based on reviews on CNET and Amazon. Happy with the quality, but honestly would have bought something else so I could continue to be connected to work while at home.
Pros Good steady online speed both wired and wireless. No need to go online and login thgrough a company website, as well as security setup was a breeze.
Cons None as of now.(6 months usage)
Summary Best wireless router that I have used bar none!
Pros Extreme speed at 2.4 MHz, reasonable speed at 5 MHz, great speed through wired connections. Used it also for Netflix and other IP based apps with may samsung TV and it works great.
Cons No VPN services. It completely killed my ability to work remotely, and that is a major issue for me and probably for many others these days. Don't touch that router (for now) if you consider connecting via VPN.
Summary Very frustrating, after wasting many hours, just to find that ASUS didn't chaeck something as basic as VPN. I hope that they wil fix it ASAP.
