    I really wanted to like this router, but it has been nothing but problems. I am a very technical person, with a career in IT and Information Security, I know my way around networking technology.

    This router does not maintain a solid Internet connection. I had this problem from the start. I know the standard ASUS firmware is buggy, so I decided to install the ASUS Merlin custom firmware as it contains many bug fixes that I was hoping would improve the performance. I continued to experience issues with WAN connectivity. LAN connectivity was just fine, but from time to time, access to the Internet would just pause. The cable modem was showing an Internet link, so were the status lights on the router, yet my devices (wired AND wireless) would have no Internet access until I restarted the router.

    So I figured I’d try to install TomatoUSB (Shibby build), another custom firmware renowned for its stability. The same problems persisted. Intermittent latency on WAN connections, although the devices showed a solid connection. I ran some PING checks when the connectivity was live and I am getting great responses. It is currently functioning, and hasn’t dropped WAN activity in about an hour (it’s overdue). If it happens again, I am going to try DD-WRT firmware. If the issues continue I’m going to flash back to the stock firmware and return it.

    It’s a shame because when it does work, it works well.

    Great little router, but beware power button failure., April 28, 2015

    This is a great little router. I have two of them, one as a primary and the second as a WAP repeater. I would have given this 5 stars, but a few days ago the power button on our primary router (purchased in December ’14) has broken. It will no longer stay in the powered position. If we hold it down manually, it works, but tape keeps coming loose (probably due to heat) and it’s kind of crazy to have to do this for a 4-month old router. The button wasn’t even being used. It was sitting on a desk behind a printer when all of a sudden power went away and we discovered the issue with the button. I’ve opened a support case with ASUS, but they’re telling me I have to send it in for repair and it will take several weeks. Well, what do I do until then? Paper cups and string? How about taking my credit card number and sending me a loaner? I send it in for repair and then we swap them out when it’s fixed. If I don’t return it, you charge my card. Quick turnaround via email support, but not really useful. My fix was to wrap some stiff wire around it and a button button cap to hold the button down. A quick Google search turned up dozens of similar reports, so this appears to be a manufacturer defect and should probably be recalled. Other reported fixes include toothpicks and crazy glue. Anyway, a great little router, but the power button seems to fail for no good reason. Hopefully our other router will hold up. Hope this was helpful!

    Off The Charts – Amazing Router!, October 14, 2012

    This review is from: ASUS RT-AC66U Dual-Band Wireless-AC1750 Gigabit Router, AiProtection with Trend Micro for Complete Network Security (Personal Computers)
    (16 months later, update at bottom) I’ve been following routers for about a year and determined this model would help future proof some wireless stuff we purchase next year. It’s also one of, if not the strongest available. I was a little intimidated buying this one because of all it’s features and not one of the traditional router brand. I thought setup would be a hassle. Boy was I wrong on all counts. This thing is wonderfully thought out…in all areas. It blows away Cisco’s new “cloud for dummies”, tricking some into online router accounts, so they can track your data usage.

    Before setup I found 3 excellent HD Youtube videos (ASUS RT-N66U Setup…Wired…Wireless). They’re made by a down to earth Asus employee who does a great job covering the setup wizard and various features. Getting it up is a breeze, very simple, takes a couple minutes for both wired and wireless. Before install you might want to check into the following:

    1) Download the latest firmware from the ASUS website. The routers FW version listed at top of GUI, nice! (Router access is 192.168.1.1)
    2) Decide if you want a different (SSID) name for the 2.4GHz and the 5GHZ channel and figure out what the names will be.
    3) I used an online “WPA Key Generator” so the keys were ready before setup. I created a different one for each channel.
    4) Visit smallnetbuilder.com forum for the AC66U. Read the couple threads on how they’re getting strongest signals, best channels, frequency’s, etc. Many passionate owners will help with timely support and tips.
    5) Test your internet speeds and pingtest.net before – and after you install this new router.

    The routers GUI is incredibly easy to understand and has tremendous amount of information and features. They use plenty of icons, images, grids, laymens terms, and “?” that provide simple explanations when hovering over. The ability to configure “port forwarding” was so simple I spent more time looking for complex steps, then the actual time to config.

    THE BOX – Folks this is an impressive looking piece of hardware. It uses very dark/deep blue LED’s just below the top surface. This dark blue lighting matches that same blue on our high end components. The small ASUS name in the back right corner is gold plated, a nice touch. The criss-cross grid pattern is done extremely well. The unit itself is solid, a very heavy device for it’s size, which is nice for a change. I’m a fan of external antenna’s and these look good, fully adjustable. They screw on so you could add extension cables to relocate them.

    Surprisingly there is a small power button on the back – no more plug/unplug. There’s also a WPS button on the back or AC66U. I discovered it’s purpose on my Android phone, a WPS note next to router network name. This feature eliminates the need to enter long WAP keys. Hitting the WPS button in a timely fashion automates and finishes connection to router. I had no ideas this tech was in routers.

    The feature called “Download Master” performs downloads for your PC. With a storage device attached I no longer need to leave my PC running while waiting for a download to finish. There’s many other features you can add or simply turn on. It’s the shizznit of routers for sure. I’m in the GUI every couple hours checking features, usage, etc. It’s a great application for sure.

    Since ASUS is making firmware changes frequently, listening to their customers, I was not worried about those minor glitches when first released this device. I was confident they would get it right and work things out. My unit is Hardware version A2, so they are updating hardware too. Stop your searching and reading – get this router – you will be happy.

    UPDATE 2-2-2014: I was so happy with my router I bought another one in November 2012 for my sister. It’s been powered on for 15 months straight…without one single issue or phone call from her (she’s pretty tech inept). It’s LAN wired to her all her entertainment components (ROKU, DirectTV, Receiver, PS3, TV). They mostly watch Amazon Prime movies and have had ZERO viewing issues. The wireless channels feed her laptop, Galaxy S3 phone, HP Officejet printer, and the “guest” account she provides friends and visitors. Again, not one issue so far. The router has not been touched since the day it was powered up. It’s hard for me to believe some of the negative reviews.

    My AC66U has also been flawless. It’s probably processed over 100TB of data and no issues. My router also feeds via ethernet and wireless our laptops, phones, and entertainment system, including the routing of BluRay movies to all our TV’s. I do wish the 5Ghz had a longer range but I rarely use that so I never turned up the signal strength. The 2.4 range gets me over a block from the house when listening to Iheart radio on my phone.

    Fast, Stable, Reliable, Secure, Rock solid, no Frills Router…, August 20, 2014
    By 

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    No frills router. But what it does…. it does really well. I’m not sure why… but in the past year I have gone through 3 routers due to the router dropping the connection, requiring either a router reboot, or a router and modem reboot. I had an old D-Link that worked well but had only a “G” category connection.. I upgraded to a Lynksys N… worked good for a while but started to drop connection occasionally… So I again upgraded to a Buffalo dual band N router… this was the worst of them all… would disconnect once or twice a day.. I could not deal with this. Mind you with all these routers I went through a pretty extensive troubleshooting program.. I updated firmware, drivers, tried multiple locations… call the techs to get help… nothing worked. I was frustrated and tired of spending a lot of money on these units.. so I tried this relatively inexpensive TP-Link router. Let me tall you what a rock solid router this is… has never dropped a connection…. streams video media from online like a champ… can stream video and have myself, my wife, and my daughter surfing online at the same time without even the smallest hiccup. I’m totally taken aback by the performance and reliability of this inexpensive TP-Link router. Really easy to set up and secure. I would recommend this to anyone that just wants a high performance stable router. I can go anywhere inside or outside my house to a surprising distance from the router and still maintain a great, fast, stable connection.

    HUGE Speed Boost, October 27, 2011

    I’ve had a pretty standard WRT54G for a long time, running normal firmware, Tomato, DD-WRT, etc., and I finally got fed up that despite having 40 MBps through the door, I was only getting ~15 MBPs on my wireless devices.

    As I mentioned above, I’m very familiar with custom firmware and involved setups (Port Triggering, Forwarding, MAC Filtering, etc) and so I expected to jump right to the Admin Console. I gave their silly little mini-CD a shot and it was set up in (literally) 30 seconds. Sure, I could’ve done it, but I was impressed that a setup CD actually worked once. I went into Admin Console anyway to make sure things were setup correctly, and added some Trigerring for Xbox Live, but it was a breeze.

    My last speed tests with the WRT (down speeds only):
    13.57
    12.81
    13.01
    11.67
    13.77
    13.71

    After plugging this thing in:
    34.66
    34.70
    28.15
    27.65

    More than doubled. I’ll take it. Solid 5 stars.

    The photo and description here corresponds to a new model, however I got the old one (uglier, only 300Mbps, weaker antennas), check the differences in the photos (I got the white one). Be careful since what you get is not what you are paying for!
