    Overall application is good, it does feel more comfortable with this application protecting you while using begin WiFi, but I want subscription connected with my account instead of paying separately.

    ASUS AC3200 Tri-Band Gigabit WiFi Router, AiProtection Lifetime Security by Trend Micro, Adaptive QoS, Parental Control (RT-AC3200) []  2020-1-17 4:31

    I would have kept it a sold five stars had the latest firmware modernize not wrecked my 2.4 GHz channel. Factory restart and all the tweaking in the globe will no longer hold all of my 2.4 devices connected. I have to constantly change the channel bandwidth in order to hold MOST things connected. There are at least two wireless connection devices that will no longer connect at all. This is a far cry from when practically out of the box, it worked flawlessly. I've had it with this router. Certainly expected better quality out of ASUS. $200 for a router that only lasts a year is unacceptable.Update 5-16-18: Recent firmware (.382_50470) effectively unborked the previous update. Router is now working like it used to. The fact that it took more than two months; that ASUS admitted no fault in their product and for having me jump through all of the hoops to troubleshoot "MY" problem @#$%es me off to no end. I spent countless hours of my own time removing and reconnecting wireless connection security cams along with over another dozen devices chasing this ghost. Such a PITA ordeal that I would still not rebuy or recommend this router to anyone. My 1-star review remains.

    ASUS AC3200 Tri-Band Gigabit WiFi Router, AiProtection Lifetime Security by Trend Micro, Adaptive QoS, Parental Control (RT-AC3200) []  2020-1-17 4:31

    Awesome router, even though it's expensive. I replaced my RTN66U "Dark Knight" router with a Netgear nighthawk, and was thoroughly unimpressed. It had broadcast issues, and performed poorly on NetSpot testing in a relatively little IS router has two 5Ghz bands, so the coverage problem I experienced with the Netgear were immediately solved. The 5Ghz coverage is as amazing as the 2.4Ghz band because of this. Now, I can attach more devices to the 5Ghz band, and free up bandwidth on the 2.4 band.I prefer the Asus UI to Netgear's. It has a more intuitive look and feel to me, and it seems more strong as well for the users who are more experienced and knowledgeable in setting up home networking.I've attached wireless speedtests from my router through google fiber. Tests were done about 15 feet from the router.********4 month update********Added a image from pulling a file from my NAS to my laptop. Speeds average 7MB/s when reading. NAS is connected via powerline ethernet adaptors, computer was r anyone complaining that this router can't handle gigabit speeds, see my "connected" speedtest. This was done connected to the router via cat5 ethernet cable into my Dell XPS 13 with a USB3.0 ethernet adapter. Note that in the screenshot I included the systray to present the laptop being in airplane mode. I have Google Fiber, and the reason the download isn't FASTER, is because I also have their TV service. The TV leeches bandwidth from your connection, to the tune of about 250-300Mbps because of the lower compression google uses to deliver higher quality tv broadcasts. However as you can see on the upload portion, it handled gigabit speeds easily.I also do a TON of media streaming in my home. This is primarily why I bought this router. I have tried and succeeded streaming up to three 1080p films from my Synology NAS to my Roku 3, Roku 2, and PS3 which are all connected 's my opinion that anyone complaining this doesn't do gigabit speeds needs to check their own hardware/connection out, and not blame this router as it CLEARLY will do all it says it will.-----edit 2/11/2017--------Added a screenshot of iPerf results. The first set is of 1 laptop to another with one on the 2.4ghz band, the server on the 5ghz band. The second is both laptops on the 5ghz band. I didn't shut anything down on my network to perform these tests, and both "server" and client were wireless.

    ASUS AC3200 Tri-Band Gigabit WiFi Router, AiProtection Lifetime Security by Trend Micro, Adaptive QoS, Parental Control (RT-AC3200) []  2020-1-17 4:31

    After four months this VERY expensive router quit working. But the reason for the 1 star is the horrendous Asus service. They create it impossible to obtain an RMA to send it in for repair. They also create it impossible to register the product. When you test to enter the serial number you obtain a notice saying that the serial number is wrong. I took a picture of the s/n and magnified it and tried every possible method it could be entered and it kept giving me the notice that the s/n is wrong. You cannot obtain an RMA because you obtain the same notice that the s/n is wrong. I am seriously considering little claims court because of my time that was wasted. Rarely do I write a review but this product deserves it so that other people will not have the same problems.

    I am having a configuration problem with my router and I have contacted ASUS help multiple times. Unfortunately I after weeks of attempting to work with ASUS I have been unable to obtain any valid help for my issue. As such I have to leave a negative review for this product. Each time I contact ASUS help I would expect a tech help agent knowledgeable in primary network concepts. Unfortunately this isn't the case. All they do is regurgitate publicly available doentation from ASUS which either does not resolve the my problem or is completely irrelevant. When I take the time to provide them a detailed explanation and synopsis of what the exact problem is I am told it would be forwarded to engineering but I never hear a response back. When I ask for a follow up I obtain level 1 help again who does not have the expertise to even understand my issue. To create matters worse I hold getting bounced around to various level 1 help agents each time I contact ASUS. ASUS: How do I obtain a senior level help engineer assigned to my help case that will work with me to understand and resolve the issue? I have been told my case would be escalated numerous times but it has not happened and I am now a very dissatisfied customer.

    ASUS AC3200 Tri-Band Gigabit WiFi Router, AiProtection Lifetime Security by Trend Micro, Adaptive QoS, Parental Control (RT-AC3200) []  2020-1-17 4:31

    I am a network yst, with a major ISP. I have nearly 20 years in the field. I troubleshoot networks that span the continent, and some that cross the ocean. I've worked help for wireless networks, Internet connections, I work on business networks currently, and routers far more advanced than what this device is. I say this, not to toot my own horn, but to state that what I am sharing comes from an experienced professional.I chose this device because of some of the advanced features, believing they would support with certain over utilization problems I have with a previous wireless router I was sadly running the CPU on that router into the ground, so I required something a bit more ere is a defect in my router. LAN devices do not communicate with each other, this is a sporadic problem special to this router, every other wireless router works out of the box with no problems in this respect. Devices like the Roku can not be connected at times to the IP remote, or controlled by/seen by a intelligent device with an app. the wireless printer is rarely visible and usable. Logitech Harmony remote base is also giving an error that the device isn't on the same network. This mostly happens on the wireless, however the issue does happen on Wired connections as ne of this is why they obtain 1 star. it's defective. I obtain that. this happens with any electronic equipment or manufactured device. I write this review because their help is one poor experience after another. I have found 1 other person on an obscure forum that has the same issue, but no resolution was available. I had already updated the firmware, factory reset, and gone through every setting available to test to resolve this issue. I went through the paces with their email help who also had me do the same steps I've already performed.1. The first Rep I worked with barely asked any questions before stating it required to be sent in to be repaired. I agreed since the equipment was faulty.2. They do not work with their customers to obtain the RMA done. They will not provide a shipping label for their defective product.3. They will not provide a shipping label for their defective product.4. When they do keep the product for repair, their technician doesn't pay attention to what the problem is, and states they cannot duplicate it. The only response I obtain when they send the item back is "test Ok, cannot duplicate issue"5. They do not return calls when they say they will.6. I have yet to actually speak to someone regarding this issue, and over all this has been ongoing for months.7. Had the tech that received the device done proper troubleshooting, they would have connected more than one device. they probably tested WAN, and found no issues. I wrote them detailed info on what the issue was. had they connected several devices and tested communication between them over the local zone network they would have duplicated the issue.I am done with ASUS. so far, the latest 3 products I have purchased from them have been defective. I may just have lousy luck, but after spending hours with their lack of support, I, am, Done. I gave them every opportunity to create this right.I recommend using Name brand routers only the only 2 wireless brands I suggest to others are Linksys, and Netgear. I've actually said that for the latest 10 years to all my customers. Asus is fresh to the router scene. I had high hopes, I've been an Asus customer since their early days when I used to go to computer shows to build a PC, before ping on the internet was possible. In the past I would have recommended them as the best motherboards. That is no longer the case either I'm afraid. they are over priced, under supported, and can not hold their a Netgear, half the price, none of the pain.

    ASUS AC3200 Tri-Band Gigabit WiFi Router, AiProtection Lifetime Security by Trend Micro, Adaptive QoS, Parental Control (RT-AC3200) []  2020-1-17 4:31

    I bought ASUS AC3200 three years ago when my house got connected to fiber optic Gigabit internet. Our household has multiple network clients, including security cameras, home automation devices, intelligent thermostats, etc., plus I work from home quite frequently and need a reliable connection. Having beautiful high demand for network performance, I was looking for a higher end 'prosumer' router and AC3200 seemed to be a amazing itial setup was relatively straightforward thanks to well designed and intuitive GUI. The router had decent amount of features for a consumer level product, although some of them did not run as expected. Beautiful soon I noticed that turning on Traffic yzer puts a tremendous load on router CPU and ultimately freezes it. I had to reboot it multiple times before I finally decided to turn this feature off. The router runs beautiful hot and required a reboot once in a while, possible because of overheating, but otherwise it was running relatively stable for 2+years and I did not have a lot of issues with arently, the solution ASUS found for the CPU overload issue was to move Traffic yzer, QoS, network protection and parental controls to the cloud. I am not sure exactly when they created this change, but after one of the latest firmware updates I discovered that I am not getting full 1Gbs internet speed at router ports. Speed try at provider's modem was still showing 900-1000 Mbs, but I couldn't obtain anything higher than 350 Mbs past the ter short investigation I discovered that turning off QoS and Parental Controls brings speed back to almost normal. When I tried turning Parental Control back on the disclaimer window popped up asking for my consent to send internet traffic info to the 3rd party (Trend Micro). Furthermore, it says that ASUS bears no responsibility for how your info is being used by Trend Micro. The amount of info they collect is abundant - it contains network topology, device IDs. MAC addresses, your network browsing history (URLs and IPs), e-mails (including notice body, attachments and addresses) and more. I am absolutely sure It wasn't there when I bought this router 3 years ago so it had to be installed with one of the latest firmware upgrades and quietly turned on!Needless to say that I immediately replaced this router with a various brand and model. I absolutely don't need a device on my network that sends out my personal info while degrading the network performance.

    ASUS AC3200 Tri-Band Gigabit WiFi Router, AiProtection Lifetime Security by Trend Micro, Adaptive QoS, Parental Control (RT-AC3200) []  2020-1-17 4:31

    Bought this router 1/11/2018 avoided doing the firmware modernize since my previous ASUS router j use dropped the 2.4 ghz wireless network after the update. AC 3200 started dropping the 2.4 ghz after one month so I bit the bullet and updated the firmware and lo and behold I had no wireless at all. Standing next to the router there was not a single SSID from the router being broadcast. Thank e 2.4 and both 5. GHz bans just stopped. Restart the router to factory setting with the restart button on the back of the router and re-entered all the set up info and still nothing. In stalled my old Cisco N router and we were back online as well as our connected home devises. Second ASUS router now and although the amazing ratings sold me on these routers, they are my latest . Also Amazon’s lumping together the reviews for manufactures devices makes the research process near impossible. Read carefully ..

    About me and my prior experience with wireless connection routers:I'm a linux guy with 20 years experience, I like to tweak my wireless routers to create them do additional items like wake on lan for my mythtv, or run custom scripts to monitor my house, or whatever. I've used a lot of various linux based WiFi routers in the latest 10 years or so, including WRT54G, to WRT600N, WNDR3800 (those you can hack, but WiFi is still not reliable with openwrt for me which is a shame for a WiFi router), to the less friendly WNDR4500 (powerful when I bought it, but couldn't install 3rd party builds on it back then).I really wanted to like and buy the [email protected]#$%!&il I saw that linksys mislead us, and it's only about a year later, that it's starting to see some begin source support, and it's not fully working yet. To be fair, my WNDR4500 Wireless connection has been rock solid, but I only use it as a Wireless connection bridge, not even as a router, and run nothing on it since the stock firmware won't allow me run what I e Review:I'm not going to review on the Wireless connection aspects of the RT-AC3200, other reviews have done this and honestly the Nighthawk X6 and RT-AC3200 are going to be beautiful close since they use the same chipset. Note that most poor reviews are from people with primary Wireless connection problems and setup issues that could happen with all WiFi e Asus however offers smartconnect aka band steering, the option of moving your WiFi clients automatically from 5Ghz #1 (high band, more speed, less range), 5Ghz #2 (low 5Ghz band, a bit less speed, a bit more range), and 2Ghz (less speed but much more range).The Nighthawk only supports handoff between its two 5Ghz bands. Smartconnect as of April 2015 still causes issues for many, and most turn it off for now, but 1) it will obtain better so you can turn it on later, 2) if you don't mind tweaking, it can likely be created to work for you depending on your clients. Google for "rt ac3200 intelligent connect missing manual" to hopefully obtain 5Ghz->2Ghz handoff working for ere is also a reported problem of frequent disconnects on the Asus (hourly). This is due to a WPA key rotation option you can turn on and doesn't work well with some clients. Don't use it, and you should be , let's obtain to begin source. While you might not care about supporting the company that does a better job supporting the opens source community all those products are now based on, Asus provides you with a router you can install your own 3rd party linux programs on. If you are hands on and/or know linux, you likely very much care about is is my first router which supports begin source out of the box, you can add your own software trivially and don't have to wait a year or more for a working begin source build of dd-wrt or openwrt, with sometimes only half working wireless due to binary driver ain, for comparison, my linksys WNDR4500 is only going to be getting dd-wrt now after 2 years, and I'm a bit wary of how that's going to turn out (after method too long of no true working begin source support). Another example was the linksys WRT-1900AC, supposed to be the ultimate hacker router. It barely works with openwrt one year later, with manual work, and it's not stable us RT-AC3200: unpacked it, turned on sshd, ready to add 3rd party begin source software. Asuswrt is already great, it's based on tomato-usb (open source router platform) and out of the the box you can install 3rd party linux software (perl, whatever) with Entware. I'm glad I gave my cash to Asus just for that. Google Entware asuswrt-merlin for info on en there is a developer who makes the asuswrt-merlin build: you obtain a few additional features on the base router too while keeping working wireless. It's so amazing out of the box that I have no need to install openwrt on it should it exist this router strongly exceeded my expectations. Thank you Asus.Minuses so far:- $300 is obviously a steep price, but it's shop rate for now- Asus help is supposed to be amazing on the phone, but I Emailed on a monday early morning. Heard nothing 24H later.

    ASUS AC3200 Tri-Band Gigabit WiFi Router, AiProtection Lifetime Security by Trend Micro, Adaptive QoS, Parental Control (RT-AC3200) []  2020-1-17 4:31

    Router worked amazing for approximately 1 year and then suddenly I began having random disconnects. I troubleshot every thing under the sun, tried every firmware revision out there. Then I went back to Optimum router and noticed method less almost no disconnects. I suspect something outside of the house could be the problem for the disconnects.. I replaced the cable modem with a Netgear CM600 to eliminate that culprit. Tested speeds wit Optimum model and was getting 412mbps down / 42 up. Swapped this router back in with the same setup, did a speedtest (noticed it felt incredibly slow) and I was gettinng LESS THAN 1mbps download with 42mbps upload. No matter what I changed or modified the router was not giving me more than 1 mbps download.. I'm chalking this up to not good build quality... Less than 2 years old and a 400 dollar router is dead. Never buying another ASUS networking product again. I'm a large fan of ASUS laptops, motherboards, video cards but this is really really disappointing. I should obtain a full replacement or refund for something like this. My connection was super quick and rock solid for almost 2 years and then suddenly these problems cropped up.

    I have tried all 3 of these routers. I have had more time to play with the Netgear X6 and Asus Rt-AC3200. My internet is through Comcast. I obtain about 127 Mbps down and 12 up. So far I search they are all beautiful much ok. I feel like if you drop $300 on a router it should be amazing. I know you will search people that cry and say expect bugs for fresh technology and I should be hung for saying this. Yes I do expect some but for flag ship routers I expect them to be squashed very quickly. So far they all have been coming out slow. And by the method I am coming from an old Netgear R6300.RANGESo far range is not that impressive of any of the three. I expected more. I do obtain a signal in all of my house and outside but I did previously. The signal in the garage is beautiful weak which is only 30-40 feet from the router. I would have to say Asus had the weakest not by much and the D-link and X6 are about the I know this is private preference but I prefer the Asus, followed by the D-link and then the X6. The D-link does seem like the nicest quality. If it were black it would probably victory in my book, I hold it in my living room and it is bright red. The X6 seems like cheap plastic and the antennas are very cheap CONNECTSo far the intelligent connect works the best with the D-Link. It hasn't dropped connections on me so far. I just don't understand why at times it puts some of my AC devices on the 2.4 Ghz band. I search with the Asus that is its largest flaw. The intelligent connect is not good and drops constanty. I got really tired of my 6 year old bringing me his smartphone multiple times a day telling me “The internet is broken again”. It disconnected after some devices went to sleep and after about 10 seconds being awake they would reconnect (wifi is set to never turn off even during sleep). The Dlink and Asus have one SSID for the 3 bands. The X6 has two SSID's. One for 2.4 Ghz and one for 5 Ghz.SPEEDBesides usage I tested the speed using I do search the D-Link to be on the slower side. It [email protected]#$%! and miss. I might obtain half my download speed. Other times I obtain all of it. I always obtain full speed with the Asus and X6. But besides using the speed try I have no issues with any of them being slow. Unless you use QOS...QOSThis is necessary to me because I have about 12 devices hooked up at the same time. Sometimes more sometimes less. Tablets, phones, Chromecasts, a Nexus Player, Tv, Xbox. You name it. The QOS champion hands down is Asus. You can assign priorities to each device and it works well. The X6 has a couple boxes to check to enable QOS. D-links is terrible. I have tried it. It chop my download speeds down 40 Mbps on every device. Even the one assigned as the highest priority.UIEach one has their own user interface. D-link definitely has the worst one. There is not much to customize or change. It is by far beautiful much worthless. The Asus and Netgear are both beautiful good. I personally like the method the Asus one is set up better and hands down their QOS setup. I also like Netgear and Asus traffic meters better. Asus has the best one of these also. You can see by device % of what data was used for on each device. Handy.Overall I have to say they are all very amazing routers. Awesome $300 routers? Hell no. If Asus would obtain off their butts and fix the dropping connection issue I would own this hands down. But its not worth a $300 gamble. As of right now I'm still torn between the D-Link and the X6 being the best. I will attach a couple images of a D-link and X6. There is an upside down Blu-ray for size reference.**Updated 4/14***So I have been using the Asus router since the review because I really liked the one SSID and the interface it has. Well on 4/12 the updated they firmware for the fourth time and finally got it right! No disconnects! When I turn my tablets on they are actually connected! I highly recommend this router right now. Thank you Asus! Fourth times a charm!

The 5Ghz coverage is as amazing as the 2.4Ghz band because of this. Now, I can attach more devices to the 5Ghz band, and free up bandwidth on the 2.4 band.I prefer the Asus UI to Netgear's. It has a more intuitive look and feel to me, and it seems more strong as well for the users who are more experienced and knowledgeable in setting up home networking.I've attached wireless speedtests from my router through google fiber. Tests were done about 15 feet from the router.********4 month update********Added a image from pulling a file from my NAS to my laptop. Speeds average 7MB/s when reading. NAS is connected via powerline ethernet adaptors, computer was r anyone complaining that this router can't handle gigabit speeds, see my "connected" speedtest. This was done connected to the router via cat5 ethernet cable into my Dell XPS 13 with a USB3.0 ethernet adapter. Note that in the screenshot I included the systray to present the laptop being in airplane mode. I have Google Fiber, and the reason the download isn't FASTER, is because I also have their TV service. The TV leeches bandwidth from your connection, to the tune of about 250-300Mbps because of the lower compression google uses to deliver higher quality tv broadcasts. However as you can see on the upload portion, it handled gigabit speeds easily.I also do a TON of media streaming in my home. This is primarily why I bought this router. I have tried and succeeded streaming up to three 1080p films from my Synology NAS to my Roku 3, Roku 2, and PS3 which are all connected 's my opinion that anyone complaining this doesn't do gigabit speeds needs to check their own hardware/connection out, and not blame this router as it CLEARLY will do all it says it will.-----edit 2/11/2017--------Added a screenshot of iPerf results. The first set is of 1 laptop to another with one on the 2.4ghz band, the server on the 5ghz band. The second is both laptops on the 5ghz band. I didn't shut anything down on my network to perform these tests, and both "server" and client were wireless.

    Bought this router 1/11/2018 avoided doing the firmware modernize since my previous ASUS router j use dropped the 2.4 ghz wireless network after the update. AC 3200 started dropping the 2.4 ghz after one month so I bit the bullet and updated the firmware and lo and behold I had no wireless at all. Standing next to the router there was not a single SSID from the router being broadcast. Thank e 2.4 and both 5. GHz bans just stopped. Restart the router to factory setting with the restart button on the back of the router and re-entered all the set up info and still nothing. In stalled my old Cisco N router and we were back online as well as our connected home devises. Second ASUS router now and although the amazing ratings sold me on these routers, they are my latest . Also Amazon’s lumping together the reviews for manufactures devices makes the research process near impossible. Read carefully ..

    About me and my prior experience with wireless connection routers:I'm a linux guy with 20 years experience, I like to tweak my wireless routers to create them do additional items like wake on lan for my mythtv, or run custom scripts to monitor my house, or whatever. I've used a lot of various linux based WiFi routers in the latest 10 years or so, including WRT54G, to WRT600N, WNDR3800 (those you can hack, but WiFi is still not reliable with openwrt for me which is a shame for a WiFi router), to the less friendly WNDR4500 (powerful when I bought it, but couldn't install 3rd party builds on it back then).I really wanted to like and buy the [email protected]#$%!&il I saw that linksys mislead us, and it's only about a year later, that it's starting to see some begin source support, and it's not fully working yet. To be fair, my WNDR4500 Wireless connection has been rock solid, but I only use it as a Wireless connection bridge, not even as a router, and run nothing on it since the stock firmware won't allow me run what I e Review:I'm not going to review on the Wireless connection aspects of the RT-AC3200, other reviews have done this and honestly the Nighthawk X6 and RT-AC3200 are going to be beautiful close since they use the same chipset. Note that most poor reviews are from people with primary Wireless connection problems and setup issues that could happen with all WiFi e Asus however offers smartconnect aka band steering, the option of moving your WiFi clients automatically from 5Ghz #1 (high band, more speed, less range), 5Ghz #2 (low 5Ghz band, a bit less speed, a bit more range), and 2Ghz (less speed but much more range).The Nighthawk only supports handoff between its two 5Ghz bands. Smartconnect as of April 2015 still causes issues for many, and most turn it off for now, but 1) it will obtain better so you can turn it on later, 2) if you don't mind tweaking, it can likely be created to work for you depending on your clients. Google for "rt ac3200 intelligent connect missing manual" to hopefully obtain 5Ghz->2Ghz handoff working for ere is also a reported problem of frequent disconnects on the Asus (hourly). This is due to a WPA key rotation option you can turn on and doesn't work well with some clients. Don't use it, and you should be , let's obtain to begin source. While you might not care about supporting the company that does a better job supporting the opens source community all those products are now based on, Asus provides you with a router you can install your own 3rd party linux programs on. If you are hands on and/or know linux, you likely very much care about is is my first router which supports begin source out of the box, you can add your own software trivially and don't have to wait a year or more for a working begin source build of dd-wrt or openwrt, with sometimes only half working wireless due to binary driver ain, for comparison, my linksys WNDR4500 is only going to be getting dd-wrt now after 2 years, and I'm a bit wary of how that's going to turn out (after method too long of no true working begin source support). Another example was the linksys WRT-1900AC, supposed to be the ultimate hacker router. It barely works with openwrt one year later, with manual work, and it's not stable us RT-AC3200: unpacked it, turned on sshd, ready to add 3rd party begin source software. Asuswrt is already great, it's based on tomato-usb (open source router platform) and out of the the box you can install 3rd party linux software (perl, whatever) with Entware. I'm glad I gave my cash to Asus just for that. Google Entware asuswrt-merlin for info on en there is a developer who makes the asuswrt-merlin build: you obtain a few additional features on the base router too while keeping working wireless. It's so amazing out of the box that I have no need to install openwrt on it should it exist this router strongly exceeded my expectations. Thank you Asus.Minuses so far:- $300 is obviously a steep price, but it's shop rate for now- Asus help is supposed to be amazing on the phone, but I Emailed on a monday early morning. Heard nothing 24H later.

    I bought ASUS AC3200 three years ago when my house got connected to fiber optic Gigabit internet. Our household has multiple network clients, including security cameras, home automation devices, intelligent thermostats, etc., plus I work from home quite frequently and need a reliable connection. Having beautiful high demand for network performance, I was looking for a higher end 'prosumer' router and AC3200 seemed to be a amazing itial setup was relatively straightforward thanks to well designed and intuitive GUI. The router had decent amount of features for a consumer level product, although some of them did not run as expected. Beautiful soon I noticed that turning on Traffic yzer puts a tremendous load on router CPU and ultimately freezes it. I had to reboot it multiple times before I finally decided to turn this feature off. The router runs beautiful hot and required a reboot once in a while, possible because of overheating, but otherwise it was running relatively stable for 2+years and I did not have a lot of issues with arently, the solution ASUS found for the CPU overload issue was to move Traffic yzer, QoS, network protection and parental controls to the cloud. I am not sure exactly when they created this change, but after one of the latest firmware updates I discovered that I am not getting full 1Gbs internet speed at router ports. Speed try at provider's modem was still showing 900-1000 Mbs, but I couldn't obtain anything higher than 350 Mbs past the ter short investigation I discovered that turning off QoS and Parental Controls brings speed back to almost normal. When I tried turning Parental Control back on the disclaimer window popped up asking for my consent to send internet traffic info to the 3rd party (Trend Micro). Furthermore, it says that ASUS bears no responsibility for how your info is being used by Trend Micro. The amount of info they collect is abundant - it contains network topology, device IDs. MAC addresses, your network browsing history (URLs and IPs), e-mails (including notice body, attachments and addresses) and more. I am absolutely sure It wasn't there when I bought this router 3 years ago so it had to be installed with one of the latest firmware upgrades and quietly turned on!Needless to say that I immediately replaced this router with a various brand and model. I absolutely don't need a device on my network that sends out my personal info while degrading the network performance.

    I am a network yst, with a major ISP. I have nearly 20 years in the field. I troubleshoot networks that span the continent, and some that cross the ocean. I've worked help for wireless networks, Internet connections, I work on business networks currently, and routers far more advanced than what this device is. I say this, not to toot my own horn, but to state that what I am sharing comes from an experienced professional.I chose this device because of some of the advanced features, believing they would support with certain over utilization problems I have with a previous wireless router I was sadly running the CPU on that router into the ground, so I required something a bit more ere is a defect in my router. LAN devices do not communicate with each other, this is a sporadic problem special to this router, every other wireless router works out of the box with no problems in this respect. Devices like the Roku can not be connected at times to the IP remote, or controlled by/seen by a intelligent device with an app. the wireless printer is rarely visible and usable. Logitech Harmony remote base is also giving an error that the device isn't on the same network. This mostly happens on the wireless, however the issue does happen on Wired connections as ne of this is why they obtain 1 star. it's defective. I obtain that. this happens with any electronic equipment or manufactured device. I write this review because their help is one poor experience after another. I have found 1 other person on an obscure forum that has the same issue, but no resolution was available. I had already updated the firmware, factory reset, and gone through every setting available to test to resolve this issue. I went through the paces with their email help who also had me do the same steps I've already performed.1. The first Rep I worked with barely asked any questions before stating it required to be sent in to be repaired. I agreed since the equipment was faulty.2. They do not work with their customers to obtain the RMA done. They will not provide a shipping label for their defective product.3. They will not provide a shipping label for their defective product.4. When they do keep the product for repair, their technician doesn't pay attention to what the problem is, and states they cannot duplicate it. The only response I obtain when they send the item back is "test Ok, cannot duplicate issue"5. They do not return calls when they say they will.6. I have yet to actually speak to someone regarding this issue, and over all this has been ongoing for months.7. Had the tech that received the device done proper troubleshooting, they would have connected more than one device. they probably tested WAN, and found no issues. I wrote them detailed info on what the issue was. had they connected several devices and tested communication between them over the local zone network they would have duplicated the issue.I am done with ASUS. so far, the latest 3 products I have purchased from them have been defective. I may just have lousy luck, but after spending hours with their lack of support, I, am, Done. I gave them every opportunity to create this right.I recommend using Name brand routers only the only 2 wireless brands I suggest to others are Linksys, and Netgear. I've actually said that for the latest 10 years to all my customers. Asus is fresh to the router scene. I had high hopes, I've been an Asus customer since their early days when I used to go to computer shows to build a PC, before ping on the internet was possible. In the past I would have recommended them as the best motherboards. That is no longer the case either I'm afraid. they are over priced, under supported, and can not hold their a Netgear, half the price, none of the pain.

    Router worked amazing for approximately 1 year and then suddenly I began having random disconnects. I troubleshot every thing under the sun, tried every firmware revision out there. Then I went back to Optimum router and noticed method less almost no disconnects. I suspect something outside of the house could be the problem for the disconnects.. I replaced the cable modem with a Netgear CM600 to eliminate that culprit. Tested speeds wit Optimum model and was getting 412mbps down / 42 up. Swapped this router back in with the same setup, did a speedtest (noticed it felt incredibly slow) and I was gettinng LESS THAN 1mbps download with 42mbps upload. No matter what I changed or modified the router was not giving me more than 1 mbps download.. I'm chalking this up to not good build quality... Less than 2 years old and a 400 dollar router is dead. Never buying another ASUS networking product again. I'm a large fan of ASUS laptops, motherboards, video cards but this is really really disappointing. I should obtain a full replacement or refund for something like this. My connection was super quick and rock solid for almost 2 years and then suddenly these problems cropped up.

    I have tried all 3 of these routers. I have had more time to play with the Netgear X6 and Asus Rt-AC3200. My internet is through Comcast. I obtain about 127 Mbps down and 12 up. So far I search they are all beautiful much ok. I feel like if you drop $300 on a router it should be amazing. I know you will search people that cry and say expect bugs for fresh technology and I should be hung for saying this. Yes I do expect some but for flag ship routers I expect them to be squashed very quickly. So far they all have been coming out slow. And by the method I am coming from an old Netgear R6300.RANGESo far range is not that impressive of any of the three. I expected more. I do obtain a signal in all of my house and outside but I did previously. The signal in the garage is beautiful weak which is only 30-40 feet from the router. I would have to say Asus had the weakest not by much and the D-link and X6 are about the I know this is private preference but I prefer the Asus, followed by the D-link and then the X6. The D-link does seem like the nicest quality. If it were black it would probably victory in my book, I hold it in my living room and it is bright red. The X6 seems like cheap plastic and the antennas are very cheap CONNECTSo far the intelligent connect works the best with the D-Link. It hasn't dropped connections on me so far. I just don't understand why at times it puts some of my AC devices on the 2.4 Ghz band. I search with the Asus that is its largest flaw. The intelligent connect is not good and drops constanty. I got really tired of my 6 year old bringing me his smartphone multiple times a day telling me “The internet is broken again”. It disconnected after some devices went to sleep and after about 10 seconds being awake they would reconnect (wifi is set to never turn off even during sleep). The Dlink and Asus have one SSID for the 3 bands. The X6 has two SSID's. One for 2.4 Ghz and one for 5 Ghz.SPEEDBesides usage I tested the speed using I do search the D-Link to be on the slower side. It [email protected]#$%! and miss. I might obtain half my download speed. Other times I obtain all of it. I always obtain full speed with the Asus and X6. But besides using the speed try I have no issues with any of them being slow. Unless you use QOS...QOSThis is necessary to me because I have about 12 devices hooked up at the same time. Sometimes more sometimes less. Tablets, phones, Chromecasts, a Nexus Player, Tv, Xbox. You name it. The QOS champion hands down is Asus. You can assign priorities to each device and it works well. The X6 has a couple boxes to check to enable QOS. D-links is terrible. I have tried it. It chop my download speeds down 40 Mbps on every device. Even the one assigned as the highest priority.UIEach one has their own user interface. D-link definitely has the worst one. There is not much to customize or change. It is by far beautiful much worthless. The Asus and Netgear are both beautiful good. I personally like the method the Asus one is set up better and hands down their QOS setup. I also like Netgear and Asus traffic meters better. Asus has the best one of these also. You can see by device % of what data was used for on each device. Handy.Overall I have to say they are all very amazing routers. Awesome $300 routers? Hell no. If Asus would obtain off their butts and fix the dropping connection issue I would own this hands down. But its not worth a $300 gamble. As of right now I'm still torn between the D-Link and the X6 being the best. I will attach a couple images of a D-link and X6. There is an upside down Blu-ray for size reference.**Updated 4/14***So I have been using the Asus router since the review because I really liked the one SSID and the interface it has. Well on 4/12 the updated they firmware for the fourth time and finally got it right! No disconnects! When I turn my tablets on they are actually connected! I highly recommend this router right now. Thank you Asus! Fourth times a charm!

    Asus RT-AX88U AX6000 Dual-Band Wifi Router, Aiprotection Lifetime Security by Trend Micro, Aimesh Compatible for Mesh WIFI System, Next-Gen Wifi 6, Wireless 802.11Ax, 8 X Gigabit LAN Ports []  2020-1-17 4:31

    ********* Updates *********3/31/2019- Fresh firmware .384_5977. Haven't had possibility to use for too long yet but problem with device list has been fixed, and it seems now I can just reset Node without restarting router then node in the specific order. Still no second 5GHz band usable to Intelligent Connect.- Added Advanced feature section as I got to use some of those features.3/13/2019- Modernize second 5G band direct connection section (only connects to router but not node).- Modernize Setup section, as for me reboot router and node order makes difference.- Added Router/Node switch Section2/26/2019- After 3 weeks of experience,o Modernize AiMesh and stability sections, now up from 3 stars to 4 stars features. See detail in corresponding sections.o Discovered that second 5GHz band can be used as separate SSID in AiMesh mode. (forced dual band section)o ASUS help very disappointing.o Simplified conclusion********* ********* *********Outside of the price, the specs on this router is currently unbeatable. Just to list a few awesome features that this router offers:1. Wireless connection 6 support2. AiMesh feature3. VPN Fusion feature4. Extensive customization options5. Gamer’s optimization (I cannot comment on this feature as I do not use this feature).********* ★★★★★ Features *********+++++ Speed +++++The router performance is great. In proximity to the router, I can obtain 500-600 Mbps Wireless connection internet download speed with 2016 Macbook Pro as well as Ipad Mini 4 on my 1Gbps service. Even at distance when connected to 5GHz band, I can obtain upper 300’s Mbps download at least 30 ft away from the router.+++++ Range +++++Our 3800 sqft two story house required 3 Orbi Mesh system or 3 Eero Pro system to cover end to end with adequate speed. A single GT-AX11000 covers most of our home except one end of the basement, likely due to concrete place into the objective number, Orbi was quick and I could obtain 200+ Mbps Wireless connection download speed throughout my home, but very unstable. So I moved onto Eero. Eero got very stable system without a hiccup, running for months, but there were locations where my speed went down to 80's or even lower Mbps for download. A single GT-AX11000 can obtain me 200+ Mbps throughout the house where the signal is reachable as long as connected to 5GHz band.With AiMesh, most part of house I obtain 300+ Mbps and the worst zone where I have no AiMesh Node, I still obtain 200+ Mbps. Though AiMesh to other Mesh network system I had are not directly compared here because I only got 1Gbps service recently and previously had only 400 Mbps service and also I did not have Ethernet back-haul option before. Nonetheless, I’m satisfied with coverage.+++++ Advanced Features +++++Although there are a lot of features that I do not use or don't know how to use, lately as I set up more intelligent home device/home automation system, I've been impressed by what this router offers as otherwise, it could have got a bit more work.1) Static IP: Ax11000 allows single toggle button to each of its connected devices to obtain Static IP, which is based on MAC address of the device and handled by router side, so even after reboot of the router, this feature remains. If needed, even laptop/tablet can use this so going out of network and back is hand-free.2) VPN Server: Fairly readily set up to remotely log into home network.3) Free DDNS: This is run by ASUS and allow you point to your home network router by This allows remote accessing of home devices simple as we do not have to worry about ISP changing your IP address and reconfigure VPN access etc.********* ★★★★☆ Features *********+++++ WIFI 6 help +++++This is certainly one of the main reasons to choose this router. The potential gain of WIFI 6 (802.11ax) standard is large including speed boost, battery saving, and more simultaneous device connection. However, in order to see these benefits, supporting client device is needed. Recently, Samsung announced their recent phones to feature these, but I currently don’t own any client device. Also, Ax standard is still a draft version, so final ver may have extra features that this router may not help (who knows). Basically, this is the future proof but not yet testable at the time.+++++ Setup +++++As a standalone router, set up was easy. As an AiMesh system, the initial set up was also simple enough. However, once I change some parameters, the router goes offline and I must reboot the router and node manually. These should be automatic. Also, in my case default setting of AiMesh did not work so well.[3/13/2019] As part of other home network change/upgrade, I occasionally need to turn of Mesh Node. But when I do so, in order to obtain solid network back, I have to reset router first and wait until it is fully up, then turn Mesh Node on. Otherwise, system acts up.+++++ AiMesh +++++This is another major reason why I chose this router. AiMesh feature allows ASUS routers to act as real Mesh system. Advanced users can potentially implement Mesh like system using Access Point and/or Repeater mode of routers, but this requires lots of tuning like selecting proper Channel to avoid conflict, selection of Roaming parameters etc. Dedicated mesh system is easy but lacks customization option. AiMesh allows us to buy fresh and the latest, feature rich router and turn that into fresh router then use older routers to be satellite node to cover better range of house. This is a brilliant concept. For this reason, I have purchased two ROG GT-AX11000 itially by default setting, I had constant drop out of AiMesh node (satellite). This was fixed by making node into Ethernet mode where default setting was AUTO mode. The latter mode supposed to automatically choose the best connection either Wireless or Ethernet backhaul. In my case, I found out it tried to switch to Wireless but signal was too weak (as I intentionally placed in the zone with weak signal), and then disconnects and instead of reconnecting to Ethernet, node went offline. Ever since the change, not a single happening of node drop.+-+-+- Stability +-+-+-I have HEOS speaker network system. Originally when I got HEOS speakers, I thought it was the HEOS that was faulty system as some speakers kept disappearing from the Application device list. But later I found out, it was the Orbi mesh network issue. This is because after switching to Eero mesh network, I had never had this problem once ter fixing AiMesh node into Ethernet backhaul mode, this got better; however, I still experienced occasional sudden, device not connected to internet. After doing online research, I eventually changed setting to disable MU-MIMO, universal beamforming and airtime fairness options on both 5GHz and 2.4 GHz bands, and also enabled quality of service in media/internet surf mode. Ever since these changes, the Wireless connection went rock solid without any drop out. I had 7 solid days without a single reboot. As I do other home network upgrading, I have to turn them off every once and awhile. So mid-term stability is rock solid with appropriate setting, but figuring these on my own were not easy, and I don’t expect everyone obtain as lucky.********* ★★★☆☆ Features *********+-+-+- A lot of customization options +-+-+-Stand-alone router system has advantage over Mesh system for more sophisticated customization options to the advanced users. AX11000 has nothing short in terms of these options. This is amazing for advanced users, but for problem shooting, too a lot of options create impossible to figure out exactly what’s causing the problem. I think ASUS should create default setup so network stability is the highest priority then allow user play around to obtain more optimized, faster speed.+-+-+- AiMesh Forced Dual Band +-+-+-In tri-band systems, AiMesh uses second 5GHz band for dedicated Wireless back-haul. This makes sense as keeping solid connection between the router and node is crucial in mesh network system, and Mesh system like Orbi uses this technology as well. However, what does not create sense is when I have the connection set to Ethernet mode (not AUTO), I see no reason to hold blocking the band. Basically, the router and node are now appears as dual-band system, which we can buy for cheaper price. There is a rumor on Internet forum, this may be reverted in future firmware update.[3/13/2019] It turned out the second 5GHz band is usable by disabling hidden SSID option. If you test to change the name to match Intelligent Connect SSID, you obtain an error though. Also, this band is only accessible on main router and not on Mesh Node.+-+-+- Router/Node switch +-+-+-In an ideal world, transition from router to node connection should be smooth and user shouldn’t even message when the switch happened. In my case, this is a mixed experience. Sometimes device sticks to the original router or node despite the other is closer and even experienced a complete device disconnect when transition is happening. This sensitivity; however, is configurable by user in AiMesh. One need to change RSSI setting. I changed mine and it seemed to work better. However, I want ASUS implement something so that RSSI value is automatically adjusted based on day to day statistics or at least suggest user to change RSSI values. This is probably one of the most necessary parameter to adjust to obtain optimal Mesh experience.********* ★★☆☆☆ Features *********----- VPN Fusion -----Another amazing feature on paper by ASUS. This feature allows individual device to go through specific VPN service using a single router/network. Previously, I had my old router set up to connect to VPN and devices that I wish to connect to the VPN had to switch to the is feature can be a 3 stars because I was able to obtain this working with some VPN service such as Express VPN, but not others. However, those that do not work on this router works on ASUS Merlin firmware installed another router, so I believe it is not VPN server side issue. Basically, I see VPN connected on both server side and router menu; however, internet becomes inaccessible. To create it even worse, it affects entire network rather than just the device I associate with the VPN. Since this is one of the feature ASUS advertise, and I see as relatively special to only some of ASUS routers, I hope to see this fixed.----- Devices disappearing from Network List -----[Update 3/31/2019] Firmware .384_5977 has resolved this issue.----- AiMesh Node not configurable -----It makes sense for some features to be non-selectable/configurable on AiMesh node as the purpose of mesh system is to create one change and reflect to all as a whole system. However, some feature like “light” on node should be individually configurable.----- Aesthetics -----It looks like a giant spider.********* ★☆☆☆☆ Features *********----- ASUS Customer Service -----I have submitted my problems on the Ax11000 soon after I received the first router. ASUS occasionally sent me email saying they are still working on then referring to unique tech, which sounded a amazing customer care. However, they were all templated e-mails and most likely just to buy a time. After 3 weeks of wait, the response was very disappointing without any content that’s useful.********* ALTERNATIVE CONSIDERATIONS *********The main reason to choose this router is its WIFI 6 support. Currently, there are relatively limited options for WIFI 6 compatible routers, but a lot of more are on its way. So why did I choose this over the other options? Noteworthy alternatives are ASUS AX88U, Netgear RAX120 and TP Link Archer AX11000.Vs. ASUS Ax88UAx88U is cheaper and also supports AiMesh. But it's a dual band, lacks VPN fusion feature and theoretical speed rating is 6000. So technically, ROG Ax11000 is better in all the specs. However, when used in AiMesh with Ethernet back-haul, I am losing a band anyways with current firmware, so Ax88U is likely to give the same performance with cheaper price.Vs. TP Link Archer AX11000This router also has 11000 speed rating. Furthermore, TP Link announced AiMesh equivalent OneMesh feature. Up on reviewing online, I just saw ASUS router gets higher rating in general and longer help from the company. But prior to current purchase, I've never had ASUS or TP Link router, so I just went with what I read. Also another feature I wanted was VPN Fusion but TP Link had no mention about this type of technology.Vs. Netgear RAX120Out of all system, I think this was the largest alternative option for me. RAX120 has multigig LAN ports up to 5Gbps whereas, ROG GT-Ax11000 only has one 2.5 Gbps LAN port. However, RAX120 is 6000 speed rated with dual band. Netgear does not have direct competitor technology of AiMesh but has Orbi like Extenders with Ethernet back-haul option, but I felt conceptually AiMesh sounded better with more flexibility. For instance, if times comes and I really need 5Gbps or even 10Gbps LAN port, I can purchase next generation ASUS router with such feature and use both AX11000 as AiMesh node.Vs. Other AX Mesh systemsOrbi, TP Link, and Arris will have Wireless connection 6 Mesh systems this year. I like and need Mesh system at home, but if we can obtain the Mesh functionality with more option/flexibility why would I choose more restrictive system? (Other than simplicity).********* Conclusion *********On paper, ROG Ax11000 is undoubtedly the best router on the shop including what's coming in near future. As a single router, this deserved 5 stars for AiMesh mode, I had originally struggled due to network stability issue. I was lucky enough to solve this on my own with internet search; however, ASUS tech help was no help. I would have returned the devices if I couldn’t have solved the issue. Since default setting did not work smoothly, I expect there will be others having the same or some various issues, and may consider this device may be unusable in AiMesh mode. So I’d give 4 stars for AiMesh setting because set up can be very tricky but once one figures out, it works better than other Mesh system I owned in the the future, I hope VPN Fusion feature to be fully functional, third band to be optionally opens up in AiMesh mode and node to be configurable at least to some extent.

    While working, the RT-ax88U router was faster everywhere in my house with various clients than the Asus RT-ac68U it was replacing. However, the router has lost internet connection a few times. At this point in the product life cycle, it doesn't seem as rock solid as my RT-ac68U was that I wish to replace. I am going to test an Asus AC3100 next. I wanted to obtain the newest hardware when spending my money; however stability is the most necessary factor.##Update 1/29Asus released a fresh firmware just after I got this router. The WIFI has been up for 5 days without problem now. I am upping my review from 2 to 4 stars... I will up again later to 5 if it stays rock solid like it has been since the recent firmware.

    Even with the recent firmware (as of Nov 19th, 2018), this router drops WiFi all the time. Works for a few mins after a reboot, but then drops again. Please don't buy if you are planning to use WiFi.

    This thing is a monster. I am not fresh to this sort of stuff. I have been at it for 20 years but I have never heard of items needed to set this thing up. I don't even know where to go to ask stupid questions! One thing for certain; It is nowhere near close to "plug and play" as my Apple Airport Extreme. I suppose that sometime in the future I will finally obtain this $500 creature setup but it won't be soon. Unless you are a networking guru of some sort, look elsewhere.

    First off I've been doing networking for 30 years. I have 7 routers deployed in my home, so I know a bit about this topic. I moved from a 5300 which was performing fine (in a huge mesh setup), but since I have over 100 clients connecting to the main router, as well as wireless connection 6 devices, I thought I would trade the 5300 for the AX11000, mistake.I have been experiencing random reboots, and dropped wireless clients (ALL wireless clients) on the AX11000. I have dozens of IoT clients, so I can't just make batter them, but even more "normal" clients like phones, laptops, etc. obtain working with tech support, they tell me its a hardware issue (it's not). So I force them to escalate to engineering. Then, I obtain this crazy instruction sheet on how to back level my router and basically turn OFF all my fresh functionality (this instruction sheet is based on the 5300, so it basically doesn't support and shows they don't know how to actually fix the problem, since it doesn't apply to this actual router).They tell me to turn off AC and AX, they tell me to turn off MIMO. Ridiculous, I would have been better off with a working 5300, and saved $450, along with about 12 hours of tip is to wait for a firmware make batter (the only firmware availble is the original code from Nov). Also, check snb forums, this is a common problem with this router. Asus released this product too soon.Update. I have backlevled the device as recommened by support, as I had to create a choice between feeding my animals and having wifi6 connections. So with wifi6, mu-mimo, and beamforming disabled, I can connect things reliably. Of course, this has now turned into a 5 year old router that is worth about $100 instead of a fresh router that cost me $450, but at least it works about half as well as the router it placed (I just don't wish to spend hours undoing what I have done).Update 4/1/19 - Asus released a firmware modernize for this router. I can now obtain Wifi6 connections, and at the same time, it allows for legacy suport. This needed a full factory restart of all nodes. Unfortunately, however, I am still experiencing random connectivty resets. Now, instead of just wireless, it is dropping even wired connections. This is on all nodes. So, this router is still not ready for prime-time, rating unchanged.Update 4/30- Stability has increased. It still has some hiccups, the transition from a 6 to 5 connection is not great, but overall it is usable. Updating my review from 1 to 4 at this time. I'm hopeful we obtain back up to 5 soon.

    I bought a Netgear XR500 latest november for the very impressive looking DumaOS... to search a buggy, completely not fleshed out (event he VPN function advertised wasn’t implemented until a late December firmware update), insanely unstable (crashed at least once a week every week, i had to resort to using my 4yr old Netgear R7000 that was perfectly reliable) router with the company that makes DumaOS having an incredibly apathetic, “we’ll fix it when we fix it” and “No ETA’s on fixes, we create updates, Netgear releases them. Ask them” tone on all forums, i gave up on hoping it would be fleshed out at any point soon. So i got rid of it for the AX88u and flashed Merlin on it.I was looking for a traffic yzing, enterprise-functionality router with the XR500 with every nerd knob possible (like Tomato firmware offers), and got a dumbed down buggy experience with barely even primary configuration options. The AC88u was the exact opposite. From a conditional VPN to IPS/traffic ysis/web logging/firewal/features you normally need to outfit a network with separate dedicated devices for, this handles it all with absurd speed and responsiveness in the interface. Everything i thought might be a gimmick (like trendmicro’s ‘aiprotection’) is the true deal and you could not ask for more to secure a home network unless you did go with those dedicated devices. It’s super stable (i changed core router settings that have to reset services in AsusWRT, while transferring 150GB worth of data from a client to an SSD connected to it to try network/USB speeds, and downloading a giant BFV patch on my gaming PC while on a work skype call and never even got a blip of cut-out or noise on my call. The web interface locked up because i created one kinda dumb change while doing this but the call never did!), inSANELY quick across the board (from using it as an OpenVPN client to enabling all the COU-taxing security features to topping out its resources by reading and writing to a USB-connected SSD), i can’t even convey how amazing this is.I wanted to see my clients’ connection rates, which interfaces they were connected to, and very importantly their life bandwidth and traffic- and within a couple clicks i can do this as if i’m navigating a Cisco ASA firewall. Just function after function, it’s all available, and it all works.I also got this for increased theoretical AC speeds and eventual AX speeds, along with wanting the fastest chipset available (my R7000 nighthawk was extremely modular, but its dual-core 1ghz CPU definitely struggled to pass VPN traffic at full bandwidth. My XR500 bricked itself after about 5 mins of use whenever i even tried to configure the VPN. The AX88U has zero problems with that speed or stability there). So far i haven’t been able to bottleneck the CPU with anything yet without the ethernet Gb bandwidth limitation topping out first. Maybe when AX clients come into play and i set up an aggregated 2Gb link the router could begin chugging in some cases, but i have no idea and really doubt it would cause a sweat at this point.Lordy, even gaming-wise i’ve been casually checking my ping in Battlefield V and Anthem, i’m getting response times i’ve never seen anywhere i’ve lived with any hardware i’ve had before (7-12ms pings, better than 95% of everyone on any server i’m place in).I even use this to manually reserve IP addresses for my non-configurable IoT devices so I know where everything is on the network. The XR500 would wipe its memory every few days, destroying the work i did there. This is super stable, leases every IP to every device i tell it on-call and never has an issue. It’s just too freaking good. My R7000 was the king of the mid 20-teens. The AX88u is the summary this thing is an utter beast. If you’re looking to go with a ‘gaming’ router, i was looking between this and the GT-AX11000 when i decided to obtain rid of the XR500. I chose this because they have the same horsepower, same specs, and the gimmicky 3rd band of 5Ghz the 11000 has id just that... a gimmick unless you have 300 devices in your home. I run about 50 clients in an apartment with plenty of neighbor networks and never have a issue with congestion or needing more bandwidth, especially for gaming, that this additional band ‘gives’ you. Also, the main reason i chose this is because the gaming ROG firmware on thr GT-AX11000 actually IS gimmicky. Read reviews on the GT-AC5300 and you’ll see a lack of Asus updates, constant bugs, broken features (recently an modernize actually stopped that 3rd 5ghz band from even broadcasting), and poorly implemented gaming functions special to the router that just don’t work most of the time. I have a mate that runs an AiMesh with an AC88u and GT-AC5300 since Christmas and it has given nothing but issues. The worst part is, NO 3rd party firmware help with the ROG firmware. So if Asus doesn’t fix a bug, you’re out of luck. The AX88u is supported by Merlin which is the snappiest, slickest firmware out there for Asus routers. That’s the key, the firmware- and the AX88u has the one you wish with no huge compromises to the st thing, AX11000 has the 2.5GbE port. Neat, but with the 8x 1GbE ports on the AX88u you have plenty of available ports to run link aggregation on, say, a separate switch with 2.5/5/10GbE help in the future for a 2Gb pipe into any of the direct router clients, while you can place any insanely quick clients on the switch directly later when those speeds begin being adopted. It’s all a win-win with this router and any future scenarios you can think of.10/10 best router of 2019, real Netgear Nighthawk R7000 successor.

    I had almost every router Asus created in the latest 15+ years and I know the pain of being an early adopter. This one is relatively simple to set up. Almost the same as RT-AC88U except for fresh wireless channels and bandwidth and AX. You just have to play with obvious settings and look for the best scenario to work in your wireless environment. I have two AC88U and one AC68U installed with AiMesh together with this AX88U. All works amazing (when it works) Also, RMerlin is supporting this model with all bells and whistles that his ver of FW gives us. It will definitely take time for Asus to improve the stock firmware and iron out all the bugs, but at this time this is the best router Asus has available on the shop and definitely future-proof for the next few years to come IMHO.EDIT - after over a month of playing with it - 3 official firmware and 2 Merlin's and number of emails with Asus tech support- today my wireless connection died completely after upgrading to 384.53292.4GHz radio barely works and 5GHz radio is dead beyond any known software repairs/tricks. Sending it so changing the rating to 1 star to be fair and honest with any potential buyers.

    Experiencing the same 'dropped wifi' problem as a lot of other reviewers. However, after I logged in to take a look at the system logs to test to see what was happening, I noticed that the router uptime was only a few minutes, meaning that the wireless connection drop was actually a reboot. Asus help recommended I return the router straight away, but I escalated to test to obtain some kind of explanation. Will modernize if I hear back from them.UPDATE: Went around and around and around with Asus help for about two weeks. They initially showed no interest in trying to solve the problem, and told me to just return it. After I pressed the issue, they finally agreed to allow me send them an export of the log files from the router. However, every time someone contacted me it was a fresh representative. They all suggested the same thing... restart the router and upgrade/downgrade the firmware. They even sent me instructions for updating the firmware on the wrong model of router. I finally gave up and sent it back. Case number is N181235545

    Asus AC1900 Dual Band Gigabit WiFi Router with MU-Mimo, Aimesh for Mesh WIFI System, Aiprotection Network Security Powered by Trend Micro, Adaptive Qos and Parental Control (RT-AC68U) []  2020-1-17 4:31

    I have had a little IT business for 14 years and have lots of experience with wireless.I bought three AC1900 troops which have AiMesh and configured one as a main router and the other twoas nodes. After a lot of tries the nodes would not connect: the router found them but consistently showed an error msgwhen attempting to add them to the mesh network. The error msg did not offer any info about why the node wouldnot connect; it just displayed a dialog with suggestions such as "make sure the troops are within 9m" and "be sure bothdevices have updated firmware."Note that I updated the firmware to the recent ver on each unit.I finally used one of the other troops as the main router and this one was able to connect both nodes on the first te that I disabled my existing wireless network before testing and there were no other wless networks detected.I placed the main router in my office, node 1 about 25ft away, and node 2 in my shed about 85ft from node 1. My laptopconnected to the mesh network in my office but when I walked to the shed it would not switch to node 2 (though it was only afew feet away). I disconnected from the network, reconnected, and I could not obtain an IP address. Apparently node 2 wasnot talking to node 1. It is helpful to note that my non-mesh network has no issue transmitting from my office to myshed (over 100ft).Of course the issue could be a defective node unit but there was no indication that this was the case.Another chance is that node 1 was not completely initialized when I plugged-in the node 2 unit. However this alsoshould not be a issue as this will happen if there is a power loss, so any mesh system should be able to reinitialize itselfindependent of the order of powering-on the units.I also noticed that during an AiMesh find a node will be found but will disappear when the find is completed. The searchwill indicate that no available nodes were found. Therefore you must click on a node *before* the find completes. According tothe Asus tech this behavior is normal.If you are looking for amazing mesh test Eero Pro. This system was simple to set up and worked well in exactly the same areas I described above. Drawbacks contain no settings for DNS so it's not amazing in an office with a domain. And the Eero *requires* a cell phone number.

    Asus AC1900 Dual Band Gigabit WiFi Router with MU-Mimo, Aimesh for Mesh WIFI System, Aiprotection Network Security Powered by Trend Micro, Adaptive Qos and Parental Control (RT-AC68U) []  2020-1-17 4:31

    I've had an RT-AC68U since January and recently decided to test out the AiMesh from Asus by getting another RT-AC68U. The one I've had since January is rock solid stable. Works Great. The second one appears to work well, and for all I know it would be a amazing router on its own. However, as a node in an AiMesh configuration, it kept dropping the signal. I mean like twice a day, not every ten minutes. The issue with dropping a signal is that when your intelligent TV detects a loss of signal from the node, it flashes a notice saying you've lost your signal. Then I have to reset the TV. This is irritating. My trusty old AC750 Netgear range extender I've had plugged into a wall outlet for 3 years never dropped a signal. That thing was like $40. If I pay $150 for a router to pair with another $150 router and that purchasing decision is based on Asus' representation that I can configure it into a mesh network, and then that mesh network is unstable. Well, that's not good. The router used for the node was returned.If you wish a mesh network you should probably buy a product that was designed from the ground up as a mesh network instead of something that is trying to incorporate a mesh network by retroactively installing the capability into routers via a firmware update. I applaud Asus for the idea, and I'm sure a ton of work and engineering went into the effort. Just [email protected]#$%! worked. At least worked as well as my cheap range extender.Having said all this, I do believe the RT-AC68U is the absolute best router you can buy. Asus has created this router for going on 5 or 6 years with incremental improvements every year. It's been perfected. It runs cool. Never had a issue with it. Amazing speeds and range. If you wish a solo router, this is the one to get. Highly recommended.

    ASUS Dual-Band Gigabit WiFi Gaming Router (AC3100) with MU-MIMO, supporting AiProtection network security by Trend Micro, AiMesh for Mesh WiFi system, and WTFast game Accelerator (RT-AC88U) []  2020-1-1 18:48

    I normally don’t write long reviews, but thought due to our interesting networking environment, this review may be helpful for others contemplating this Asus AC88U router in more complex e short summary is that this router has been very capable and refined out of the box (contrary to what some professional reviewers have claimed as “beta” with some Asus routers and users), with only the slightest of “glitches” that should be remedied as the firmware matures. It was a sufficient enough improvement in a very busy mixed network to replace our old workhorse AC68U. For those with the most active networks, the AC88U is probably the current SOTA and should squeeze every latest ounce of performance from it.We have what is best described as a mixed-protocol, mixed-device, high-activity, network. Much of it is wired gigabit ethernet, but with a massive supporting load of wireless 2.4 and 5 ghz clients, from legacy G to the recent AC Wi-Fi devices. Our broader network has three laser printers/MFPs (including color models), a Mac running OS X server with outboard RAID stack serving 10+TB of local data, three other Mac clients, three PC laptops, two PC workstations, a LAG-ethernet connected NAS unit for all local backups, six Squeezeboxes (wired and wireless) served by LMS locally, five Apple TVs, two network-managed cable boxes, several other intelligent TVs, Android device tablets and streaming clients (Amazon Fire and Roku), two networked BD players, no less than seven iOS devices running both N and AC Wi-Fi, two gaming consoles, a fully populated Cisco 24-port managed switch with multiple LAG connections, and about 2,500 total feet of gigabit ethernet cable to manage. And a fairly active 2.4 ghz guest network on top of all of it for the regular in-law and neighbor visitors and all their devices. The longest Wi-Fi run is about 65 ft through 5-6 walls and across four levels (I do not believe in local repeaters or APs for security reasons). We run our 175/12 ISP WAN beautiful much at its limit, with monthly activity typically in the 300-400+ GB range. At any given time, there are never less than 26-28 active clients on our network. Most activity is multiple-client, higher bitrate HD video and audio streaming, and regular larger data transfers, including multiple TimeMachine, local and off-site server backup routines. With all local data, HD video and audio traffic, Internet and cloud video streaming and data transfers, several RDC clients running, and continuous off-site server backups, our network is typically managing and moving hundreds of GB everyday across a lot of streams simultaneously. This is a massive load for any router.We were among the first buyers of the AC68U as a result. It has been a stable device since day one, with incremental improvements as Asus has refined its firmware. To date, our old AC68U still does a capable job. It is good-looking, petite, and draws no attention to itself. It just does the job. Consequently, I would continue to recommend this now classic AC router for any but the most intense network environments. Where the 68U can now falter for us is on longer and fringe wireless AC and other 5ghz connections during heavier network activity, where speeds and latency can begin to fall off. As a result, we started shifting some devices to the 2.4 ghz band to relieve the AC68U. Under peak network activity, some ethernet transfers would also experience a slight drop off (from 100-105 MB/s to perhaps 75-80).Enter the AC88U. It has several features that helped wring some extra capacity and headroom out of our busy network. The LAG feature is a legitimate IEEE 802.3ad setup, and allows a 2GB pipeline from our server to both Wi-Fi and Ethernet clients. Previously, a LAG connection was confined to Ethernet-side only. The AC88U’s more robust 5 ghz hardware delivers stronger and more stable fringe connections than the 68U, and with more headroom. We can move all our clients back over to 5 ghz with no speed drop off. The AC88U can help multiple HD video streams on all of them simultaneously without any compromises. Fringe 5 ghz devices previously connecting to the 68U at 125-150 mb are now rock solid at 350-400+ mb. Older 5 ghz clients such as the Intel 6300 AGN series are now holding stable connections at or just under 300 Mbps across much longer distances.Updating the 88U to the recent firmware was an simple affair, taking under 3 minutes. Migration from the 68U to the 88U was fairly painless, with a settings save and upload between them transferring about 80% of our router settings over to the fresh router. However, some settings need to be manually re-entered, and all settings should be double-checked. I imagine related later model Asus routers will have a related sed on our testing, the AC88U’s more robust processing and transmitting power has improved all network transfer speeds over the 68U by approximately 10-15%, including for WAN traffic. This may not prove significant over a smaller network and/or with smaller data transfers, but for larger volume data transfers and massive users with lots of clients, it adds up to a faster, more responsive network experience. As with all these matters, YMMV, and I suspect the 68U to be the the full equal of the 88U in less hectic environments. But the largest gains for us with the 88U were seen with wireless clients, and in the 5 ghz band, particularly over e 88U is not without its flaws. It is a huge and somewhat garish-looking device (we're older and best described as "mature", but I'm sure anyone under 30 will love it), and requires more true estate and electricity than the trim and classy looking 68U did. Its firmware, while surprisingly polished so early, is not yet mature. Most notably, we occasionally experience some very brief page load delays under Safari (2-3 sec), and very infrequently a slight delay when first connecting to our NAS - but once connected, it flies. I would characterize these more as “glitches” than full blown bugs, and expect that they will resolve over the next couple of firmware revisions. However, the entire Apple ecosystem in our house runs flawlessly under it, with all that implies (Airplay, Airdrop, Home Sharing, TimeMachine, FaceTime, etc), and the PCs, Apples and Androids all obtain along together nicely. The 88U is also eye-watering expensive, and you are paying to be on the bleeding-edge with it. MU-MIMO is an infant technology, and like most consumers, we are not yet using it. Perhaps later. I’m not a lamp-watcher, but the single LED to indicate all switch activity may bother ever, the bottom line is the AC88U is probably the strongest, most strong home/prosumer router currently available. But its advantages over a more mainstream AC router such as the 68U are likely only going to create economic sense in busier, more complex networking environments. I consider it the top choice in any mixed environment, where ethernet is significantly deployed. The only possible current make batter over the 88U is the tri-band AC5300, which can help even more 5 ghz clients than we have, and makes more sense in a Wi-Fi dominant environment. But for up to 12-15 5 ghz clients, the 88U is its equal. We expect the 88U to be with us for the next 3-5 years before our technology overtakes it, much as the 68U was. Again, for most homes, the difference between the 68U and 88U is not going to justify the price difference. Unless your 68U is starting to strain or stumble, there is small to be gained with the 88U.I won’t go into all the other features of the AC88U which are common to all Asus routers, such as AiProtection, etc., except to say they are all work well on the AC88U. Having used a lot of router brands over a lot of years, we continue to prefer Asus for its combination of solid, reliable hardware and relatively useful and stable native firmware, and have not found the need for 3rd-party firmware solutions as with some other brands. The Asus Router Application needs some work however, and is currently best r a small less money, the AC3100 is just about the same router as the 88U, with 4 less ethernet jacks. However, we appreciate the additional ethernet jacks on the 88U to relieve our huge switch from supporting server room devices such as printers and our RAID ould the operation of the 88U change in future, we’ll modernize our review accordingly. But after about a week with the 88U, we are confident enough to sadly say goodbye to our trusty 68U (which is still worth about $95 on trade-in).LONG TERM UPDATE (July 30, 2018):We still have this amazing router, and it has worked flawlessly across a lot of firmware revisions since the original review over two years ago.If anything, our network demands have increased since the original review. In addition to the above network traffic, we now are 'cable TV cord-cutters', have upgraded to full gigabit Internet service with an SB8200 modem, rely exclusively on streaming Internet TV and VOIP services (including plenty of Amazon Prime streaming), and have expanded ethernet into another renovated section of our house with massive 4k video streaming activity. Our total networked data storage reservoir now exceeds 20TB (we have built up a substantial digital media collection, which is why we finally ditched cable).Our 88U has yet to stumble or slow under the increasing load. It has been a most impressive router that handles whatever you throw at it. We grew so confident in this router, we even set up a 2.4 ghz band Wi-Fi audio client in our shed/outbuilding nearly 125 feet away this summer. And the 88U reaches it with fair to amazing signal strength, while accommodating everything else, in this point, the firmware is quite mature, and quite stable. The only time we ever reboot the router is for a firmware update, or should a power outage cause some non-UPS clients to have reconnection addition, the Asus mobile application has been repeatedly updated and improved, and has become quite usable. We will often access the router from a smartphone to periodically 'roll call' which clients are accessing the network, to gauge traffic pressure, and to see if any firmware updates are available.I do see that some later purchasers are having issues with this router. It is not uncommon for manufacturers to implement hardware revisions through a product's life cycle, and it would not surprise me if Asus may have done this after we bought ours. Sometimes those hardware revisions are not for the better. Ours was a very early production version, and it appears that a lot of related amazing reviews were with that initial production. So buyers may wish to note the time frame where not good reviews are occurring and avoid the hardware revision for that period. And hunt or wait for revision versions with the best reviews.Another hint for maximum network stability is to hold any router on a dedicated full sine wave UPS. While transient protection is obvious nowadays, a lot of administrators overlook the impact of voltage sags on networking infrastructure, especially during summer. Mains supply voltage sags can stress some semiconductor circuits and also affect the stability of the device, both immediately and over ere are now significantly more strong routers available, some from Asus. But it would take an extreme level of network traffic to overwhelm the 88U, even in mid-2018. I just don't see that event in any rational home networking environment. Our network hasn't been able to do it, and I think we show a near-corporate environment with those observations, and aware that some later production may not be as reliable, I can still unequivocally recommend the 88U. It is as much router as anyone will ever practically need at this time short of a corporate environment. It has been our most dependable and best performing router in the nearly 25 years we have had residential networks.

    Initial capability was extremely impressive. It is well powered and allowed the wireless signal to reach much farther than my old router. It has worked flawlessly from when it arrived until about 3 weeks ago. The 2.4 GHz seemed to stop working for a couple of hours. My computers use the 5.0 GHz network and my children iPads use the 2.4 GHz, so I did not message it until they complained. The 2.4 GHz has now completely died and I am working with their technical help via email. The amazing news is I can switch most of the devices over to the 5.0 GHz until we obtain it fixed. I will post an modernize after I obtain it fixed.Update 5-31-2017:Prior to sending it back for the 2.4 GHz issue, the 5.0 GHz started having the same problem where it will completely go away for up to 10 minutes. ASUS provided an RMA, to fix both the 2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz issues. The receipt provided by ASUS shows that they fixed the 2.4 GHz and mentioned nothing about the 5.0 GHz issue. Now that it is returned, the 5.0 GHz has stopped working. That was a waste of time! I am on the phone with them right now for another RMA. The latest RMA took 3 weeks to obtain my router back because their shipping way was the cheapest one available to them. It took over a week just to obtain it there! I took the brand name of ASUS as a amazing quality router to replace my current router, but I believe I created a mistake. If you are researching for a fresh router, please consider this review and create sure you have a backup router for when this happens.

    Not impressed. I have had nothing but issues since I took this thing out of the box. The fast setup failed to work, it would fail to load the web page completely. I would log-in, and could not view all the options on the admin page. I would finally click on something and would obtain kicked out and have to log in again, this would repeatedly occur over and over again. I finally resorted to calling support. They told me I had to have it plugged into my cable modem for it to work properly, which I did and had the same result. The help tech then place me on keep for 15 minutes until his shift ended at 6:30PM PST, what crap! I finally resorted to resetting to factory defaults and used the advanced set up. This time it worked, but would not allow me change the network from I could obtain the admin web page to load and create some configuration changes. I had most things set up and working however, the 2.4ghz wireless would fail to enable. I even tried both upgrading firmware and downgrading firmware with the same result. My baby's webcam uses 2.4Ghz so I am no longer able to use it. I was able to change the LAN network from after the firmware change.** The admin web page not loading and getting kicked out repeatedly.** Not being able to change the LAN address** The 2.4Ghz wireless connection radio not working** The crappy phone help I receivedI would not recommend this router to anyone.I should add I am a senior network administrator and have designed and built both huge scale enterprise and little business networks. I have literally configured more than a thousand network devices and this one is one of the worst I have tried.

    Asus AC1900 Dual Band Gigabit WiFi Router with MU-Mimo, Aimesh for Mesh WIFI System, Aiprotection Network Security Powered by Trend Micro, Adaptive Qos and Parental Control (RT-AC68U) []  2020-1-17 4:31

    I bought this because of online reviews. It was rated as one of the top routers available in this speed rating (AC1900). My experience has not been stellar. The 2g signal is much stronger than the 5g signal, but this may be a limitation of the 5g signal, not sure. Also, connections are spotty and we frequently obtain interruptions on multiple devices for no apparent reason. Disconnecting and reconnecting resolves the problem but sometimes I have to reboot the router. Speeds are not even remotely close to a wired connection, despite the 2g speed rating (theoretical) of 600Mbps. My ISP is 200Mbps. I typically obtain around 40-50Mbps via wireless. Maybe this is typical, I don't know. There are only 2 people in my household that stream or android game and normally never at the same e user interface is very amazing and very intuitive. I hold the firmware modernize regularly. The device has a little physical footprint so doesn't take a lot of room. I guess I need to mention that the device is used as an access point behind a hardware firewall but not sure this has anything to do with the speed I obtain through it. Wired devices are connected directly to the firewall; not using the ports of the wireless router at all, except to connect it to the ill scouring the web for a better router but they can be very expensive and this one continues to obtain amazing reviews. I just wish faster, more reliable connections and I am not getting them with this device.

    Probably the second or third prettiest router I've ever seen. It's not a work of art, but it looks amazing and has a nice glowing light that you CAN adjust the brightness of, if you desire. (that's important) There are some routers out there that truly look beautiful, and I wouldn't call this beautiful, but it fits in well with our very clean, sleek, modern re importantly, it works in every method that matters. I am an IT consultant working on networks constantly, and this router has all the bells and whistles I wanted in my home network. The range is good, the wireless speed is amazing, and the reliability has been solid so far. It's smaller than you imagine it is from the photos, and I think that's a amazing thing! Recommended buy, if you're looking for a good-looking AN IT PROFESSIONAL, HERE'S A MORE GEEKY AND DEEP REVIEW:I love the deep customization options available on the router's HTTP page (which is partially accessible via phone application or www service remotely or locally via IP address). Of course, I disabled the remote access abilities in general for security, but it seems like a amazing feature for most home users. The customization covers whitelists, DMZ, network logging, Firewall, IPS, Proxy, OpenVPN, and Connected USB devices, among a lot of others.I played with the OpenVPN options and loved it. Simple to set up (though doentation is beautiful poor on that part). Unfortunately, Netflix complains about VPNs so that is a no-go for the moment. There are 4 gigabit ports and the speeds on those, as well as the speeds over the 5GHz network are incredibly fast. I obtain my full 100Mbit FiOS connection over Wireless to my 802.11ac e signal strength of the 5GHz radio across the house in my bedroom through 4 walls and other furniture is about -70dBm. My previous router would drop to -90 or even disappear under those conditions. -70 is perfectly usable, though the throughput will attenuate some of US seems to be releasing updates on schedule and have recently added AIMesh and other services to the router, so that's a amazing sign! I haven't run into any downside yet. I will come back and modernize this review if issues arise, but so far, I'm happy. If you're on the fence with this one, just go ahead and grab it. It isn't the most strong router available, but it's top-notch and it's about time routers started looking like a reasonable fixture in a modern home!

    I like ASUS products when it comes to computer hardware like motherboards and graphic cards and all my computers are built with their components for the latest 6 years. But for routers, I am done with them. I bought their super expensive AC5300 one which worked for about 3 months, then my wireless connection network disappeared and I had to send it for repair. It was returned weeks later with no explanation. During this time, I used the cheapest Netgear router available with no issue. Actually it was working so well that I kept it online while my expensive AC5300 was gathering dust. Then, I moved out so I thought this would be the excellent time to rebuild my network with the high end 5300. I updated the firmware and discovered the 5300 was supporting AiMesh. Since the fresh house is beautiful big, I thought this would be a amazing feature. So I bought the Asus AC1900 to extend the range of the AC5300. Huge mistake. The recent firmware is buggy as hell, both on 5300 and 1900 model. As for the AIMesh, I was never able to have the two routers talking to each other despite following precisely the procedure from the ASUS www service and manual. I realized that ASUS router firmware help is so not good that several alternative solutions were developed by enthusiasts to offset the a lot of bugs suffered by the official firmwares. But using them would mean loosing the AiMesh feature. So that's it. I am done. I remembered my cheap Netgear router that was working so well and how much all my wired network is created of their sturdy switches and hubs... I went full netgear with their super fancy Nighthawk X6S AC4000 and X6S EX8000 Mesh extender. WebUI is a dream of reactivity and it took me 2 mins to pair the mesh extender. Sorry ASUS, I love your PC products, but I am so disappointed with your network ones.

    Four stars instead of five because of the buggy e hardware is very nice and capable, but the firmware has "issues." No matter how much broadband bandwidth you have available from your Internet connection, the speed (throughput in the router) becomes less and routing worse until a reboot is necessitated, because of operating-system (firmware) problems or bugs. This problem, which has been reported on the Internet as well as here in some of the Amazon reviews, becomes obvious if you do a lot of video streaming such as Netflix or Amazon's own video-streaming service, with the video quality becoming worse and worse (especially noticeable with 4K or 1080p quality video) and the buffering lag more and more frequent, requiring the router to be rebooted once, twice or three times per day, which can become quite frustrating. FORTUNATELY, Asus has allowed open-source, 3rd-party firmware to be installed to its flash memory, so despite not addressing these problems itself with official firmware updates, or being slow to do so, the Asuswrt-merlin alternative firmware is easily installed (instructions at the Asuswrt-merlin website), works great, looks very related to the stock Asus webUI admin interface, and resolves these annoying , if you buy this router, you might wish to be prepared to download and install an alternative to the firmware already installed by Asus. Just a "heads up."

    My background: Software developer that uses computers almost all day long. I have business class Verizon FiOS and 5 static 's my experience & thoughts with this router:* Setup was beautiful easy. However, there was some browser quirkiness. If you have problem then I suggest trying a various browser.* In case you need it, the factory default username/password is admin/admin and the default IP is .* I went to Administration->Firmware Make batter and the router checked for an update, found one, and installed it. Beautiful painless.* Access the router's web interface via HTTPS is possible, but will give you a certificate error that you will have to allow/override.* The web interface is beautiful simple to use. I like it.* I set up 2 guest networks, one on 2.4GHz, and one on 5GHz. Very simple and so far working great. It allows up to 3 guest networks on each band.* The traffic monitor is very nice, and shows various graphs for 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless traffic.* I highly recommend you leave remote (WAN) access disabled. You'll potentially be opening up your router to hackers and security vulnerabilities.* I am not using AiCloud or USB features and I'd be careful with those. I'm not sure I trust the security on features such as these.* Under Network Map->System Status->Status it shows nice CPU and RAM usage graphs. Currently mine is showing only 45MB used and 205MB free. I think this router has 256MB of RAM. It's also showing low CPU usage (by the way, it's a dual-core ARMv7 CPU).* The system log indicates it runs Linux 2.6.36 and has 128MB of AMD NAND flash and 255484k of available memory.* I purchased the router at the end of September 2014 and my hardware revision is "A2".Should anything change then I'll make batter this review. So far I really like this router so 5 stars.UPDATE 2014-11-24: So far it has been rock solid. I set it up and I haven't had to restart or reboot it since.UPDATE 2016-01-05: Still extremely pleased. This is what a router should be. Set it & forget it. It just works.

    Wow. Goodbye Netgear. Hello ASUS RT-AC68U AC1900 router! In fairness to Netgear, the netgear r6300 I have had for years has been a stable product (with the right settings, however) and it was paired with a Arris SB6141 Cable modem, but lightning took both of them away. I went for the combo C7000 Netgear recent and greatest I wanted to like it but it lagged and had 20 second drops of connectivity. Unstable. Unacceptable fresh product with bugs was my experience and a lot of others had the same experience too. Reviews for Asus were surprisingly amazing and never had owned an ASUS router before but the reviews were so over the top I had to search out. So I ordered my fresh Arris SB6141 Cable modem (because it was rock solid for me before) and the rst impressions... wow nice build quality. Very impressive. True removable antenna just like a true AP pro class. It just felt amazing and looked great. All the machining and connections looked above grade from any other manufacturers in the consumer zone I have seen. A true "PRO-SUMER" background is I.T. and I am in this zone so to impress me was not an simple feat. Our use case for this router is:NO cable... all streaming house... using Two Roku, 6 laptops, one of them dedicated for streaming Xfinity TV-GO stations, a Wii android game console, Grace Digital Mondo Internet Radio player, HP laserjet on wifi, oven on wifi, garage doors on wifi, heated tile floor thermostat on wireless connection (for the weather), and 6 intelligent phones (2 iphones, 4 android). Plus a "lab" in my office using wireless connection devices (Wifi scanners, etc) for job similar activities. We often could be streaming roku channels (ESPN, FoxGo, etc) at the same time as Fox news on another tv, with Roku netflix upstairs as well, plus any of the household (or all) could be streaming online youtube, amazon video prime or facetime with you can see its a massive usage situation. My router right now has 21 devices connected at one time from the list mentioned above. Back to the review...On powering up and connecting to this Asus the setup was so simple it was awesome with the wizard. I was online in e interface was amazing... Wow. The feature set was so in depth and so well done that this was like router Eden. Graphics, Data, Stats galore. Instant salivation for anyone with an appreciation and knowledge on 802.11. They should have code named this router the ASUS l that is amazing but if it doesnt work, or drops its just a piece of beautiful junk. Guess what. Its got it where it counts gnal strength around the house is stronger than ever. Speeds on all clients are crazy fast. Stability on 2.4 *AND* 5ghz is what it should be. I mean wow. where has this router been all my life?? The router has a cpu graph for the dual core cpus in the interface and its barely breathing handling the traffic- even with all the bells and whistles turned on collecting traffic, stats and web history from clients! Oh and did I mention this is all with QoS turned off!! Why limit bandwidth if you dont need to? QoS seems to be used best for little pipes or compensating for not good routers that cant handle a load, in my expeience. My network is rock solid. I will modernize this if something changes, of course, but from my experience you just know when you know, you know? And for this router... I know!In closing, watching the real-time bandwidth utilization graphic in the interface I can see the ebb a flow of downstream data (as well as upstream). Mine was pulsating in bursts from 6 to 28Mbps as the demands of multiple HD streaming clients was requested. Dual core CPU never clicked over single digits combined. I have Xfinity Blast! and speed tests were 75-80 down and 10-12 Up over 5g wireless connection -- just for reference. plenty of headroom.,Netflix Roku App's Network try reported that my Downstream capability to their servers was 17.35 Mbps. to sum up. I think this is the best router ever on a lot of levels, Build quality, stability, feature set, and pairs very nicely with a Arris SB6141 DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem, which to me is a proven solid product that I have used easily for over a decade (back when it was created under Motorola). I even used a 6121 4 channel ver prior to this 6141 8 channel down / 4 up coming out about 10 years ago (I think).6141=great us RT68=Awesome Stable RouterEDIT UPDATE on 7/30/2018:This has been a solid router for me since I wrote this review. I am up to 27-33 clients around the house generally between adding technology finding its method in the house (now 5 rokus!) and supporting transient devices for my job, or friends/family. Still remains to be great. I do modernize the firmware when it comes up and have not had issues with any so, I mentioned I used QoS off... I have since changed gears on that. I now have QoS on and set to MEDIA/VIDEO as the priority due to all the video we stream here... It has been rock solid and definitely performs better with QoS set ON. Video plays at Highest resolutions and glitch free all around the est feature of this router in the firmware is AIMESH. This feature intrigued me because the far reaches of our gift room has not good signal.... the roku in there doesnt seem to like the weak signal... I bought another one of these routers and added it as a MESH NODE. This allows seamless roaming around the house and load balancing of clients between the two routers. The only issue I had was the firmware's didnt match so it wouldnt mesh. I downloaded the recent and updated both to the recent firmware and then had no issues meshing the second router as a node. Very easy. I placed it at the end of the house downstairs, and now have amazing signal in the gift room. I continue to love this router!! AiMESH rocks!Update 12/27/18:Still kicking strong. AIMESGH is great!! There have been several firmware updates and the router keeps getting better. I have not had any true problems with any of the firmware updates so I am grateful for that and kudos to ASUS for apparently knowing what they are doing and testing things sufficiently! I will say I have had to reboot this router less than 5 times since I have owned it due to some kind of internet issue. I dont know if it was caused by comcast, or just a glitch... but I did reboot it and the problem resolved on each of those occasions. Thats beautiful darn stable. I might give it "five nines" of uptime considering I just never touch it except for those few nce my original review, Comcast/Xfinity has upped the bandwidth so I am getting about 175 meg down now...same 10/12 meg upload... Everything runs great... and stable. I have half a dozen clients on one side of the house on the mesh node 1 and the other half on the other "host" router... its nice. I have also been adding more devices since my latest modernize ... RING doorbell, a SONOS Connect, two Google Home Minis, and four Amazon Echo DOT are added to the network (these are cool devices and love how you can use as intercoms by the way) .... also, I have four Ring floodlight cameras sitting in boxes I got for Christmas which I will be installing when the weather is nice which should be pushing me towards about 50 clients in the house (not all on at a time, mind you) but could be I suppose! Amazing router.

    Asus AC1900 Dual Band Gigabit WiFi Router with MU-Mimo, Aimesh for Mesh WIFI System, Aiprotection Network Security Powered by Trend Micro, Adaptive Qos and Parental Control (RT-AC68U) []  2020-1-17 4:31

    Purchased this router in January 2014 and have had no issues. Firmware is still at .374, hardware ver is A1. I purchased this router after I bricked a Cisco router from a poor firmware update. I'm writing this review (actually more of a potential solution) because I noticed a small over 10% of the reviews are 1 star (which is "normal" percentage of any product) and after scanning through the 1 stars the common theme is intermittent wi-fi drops and "weird" router behavior when using the USB 3.0 port. Something to be aware of is that USB 3.0 ports, cables, and devices transmit on the 2.4 GHz - 2.5 GHz range. From the Intel White Paper:"As previously shown in Figure 2-2, the noise from USB 3.0 data spectrum can be high(in the 2.4-2.5 GHz range). This noise can radiate from the USB 3.0 connector on aPC platform, the USB 3.0 connector on the peripheral device or the USB 3.0 cable. Ifthe antenna of a wireless device operating in this band is placed close to any of theabove USB 3.0 radiation channels, it can pick up the broadband noise. The broadbandnoise emitted from a USB 3.0 device can affect the SNR and limit the sensitivity of anywireless receiver whose antenna is physically located close to the USB 3.0 device. Thismay effect in a drop in throughput on the wireless link."I experienced this when I built a fresh computer and placed the router on top of the turret on my desk and plugged my Patriot USB 3.0 thumb drive in the USB 3.0 port on top of the turret which is about 8 inches from the router antenna. My desktop is Ethernet, so was not affected. Laptop1 was using 5.0 GHz band and was not affected. Laptop2 was using 2.4 GHz band and could not connect wirelessly. Took an hour to figure this out (only variable that changed was distance of thumb drive to antenna). My old computer's USB 3.0 port was at the bottom back of the turret and farther away. So basically, USB 3.0 acts as a router wi-fi jammer if located too close and it's simple to mistake this common problem as a router intermittent wi-fi drop issue.

    3/28/19Asus "Customer Loyalty" Dept reached out to me and this is what I experienced::1) I was informed the Asus REP who told me that they were aware of the 2.4G Failures was now "MISINFORMATION".... If indeed this was "Misinformation", then why are there SO MANY Reviews from frustrated customers who have doented this EXACT issue without a resolution? And remember, there are likely MANY MORE who returned these troops without writing any reviews.2) If there are NO problems with these routers, then why after reporting first the failures of the RT-AC86U (I bought and returned two in two weeks) , It was suggested I make batter to a RT-AC88U..... which I did and it failed after two weeks! The customer loyalty dept then suggested I then make batter to the RT-AX88U which would have been an extra $120+........ I suggested that for all the wasted time I spent on the phone and hours going through failed suggestions on how to correct the issues plus 3 trips in Returns to UPS that Asus pay the difference if they think this was the only method to supply me with a reliable, working my case, the Asus "Customer Loyalty" Department does not have the authority to create it right by paying the difference for a product they suggested would leave this customer satisfied. It appears there ability to actually solve problems does not contain acknowledging their are ongoing issues with there products, nor knowing they are losing a loyal customer......So before you purchase any ASUS Router, READ ALL the Reviews as they are from actual customers who experienced what I did. Disappointing does not describe how they have left this for me and evidently countless others !So Abigail (from Asus), you can still create this right by contacting me if you truly want to fulfill the purpose of your "Customer Loyalty Department"....**********************************************************************************************************************************I required a MESH for my home, and I already have a RT-AC68U that has continued to perform. I purchased a RT-AC86U as the Master AI Mesh.... 7 Hours of Re-Booting & Calls to Asus finally confirmed it had Hardware Problems that could not be resolved, as it just would not AIMesh with the 68U. I had the replacement 86U in a matter of days and I then found the on board Switches for the Wi-Fi and LED's would not work. It was returned too, but instead I thought a better model would resolve all. I ordered the RT-AC88U instead and for the first 2 weeks, it was great,and I loved the 8 onboard Ethernet Ports. Then one morning we found none of our Intelligent Home Alexa Devices would respond. Initially thinking Amazon's Server was down, and I started checking and actually found the 2.4G radio in the 88U was not transmitting! Called Asus and they had me Re-Boot and insure I had the recent Firmware (I did) and it started working. Hung up the phone and thanked the CSR. Just a Hiccup? No! Within 5 Mins the 2.4G was again Dead. Called Asus back and after numerous other repair attempts the CSR I spoke with actually said " Yes... We are aware of the 2.4G Radio issues. You will need to return it to the Factory for Warranty Repair"..... Thanks, No.... I returned it to Amazon and I am still in need of a replacement Router. I did see other reviews going back 2 years with the same issue, but I dismissed them as one-offs., customer error issues. I was wrong. Evidently Asus is well aware of this, yet they are still sending out these without correcting the problems. Is every one defective? Not apparently so, but enough are that I am adding my disappointment in Asus to the list of not good reviews. And my e-mail to the Executive Offices ) asking when they will resolve the issue have gone unanswered. The only bright spot in all these returns was that Amazon could not have been more supportive and bent over backwards to test to support resolve these problems for me.

    With a fresh home purchase with a high speed internet pack with COX I had hoped this would be an simple to set up, high speed router. This is my second ASUS router and I loved my old one...however, I've had nothing but issues with this model since I got it. I've been on the phone for hours with my cable model company (Arris DOCSIS 3.1) and COX as well as ASUS because the router kept shutting down. (I have only marginal 2.4 Ghz channel, and almost never have the 5 Ghz channel as advertised. I've even gone so far as to have both the cable modem and router replaced with fresh ones from Amazon (Amazon was amazing by the method with their customer service and sent the fresh troops the next day) My largest problem, besides the chop down of speed through the router, is the fact that it completely shuts down and I have to go through the process of doing a total restart on the router in order to obtain it back up and running. Not only is it frustrating but I usually have to restart the unit several times before it "takes" and I can set it back up and connect. (Yeah I have to go back in each time and totally reconfigure the online settings so it's very time consuming. I've had to revert to making a list of all my settings to create sure I obtain it just right each time) Not only is this frustrating, but my wife is taking online classes for her Masters degree and it has shut down during class which is totally unacceptable.I had the COX serviceman out to the house latest week and verified that I was getting almost 400 Mbs into and out of the Arris cable modem but only about 35 Mbs coming out of the router. Very frustrating for all the cash I've spent on this one. Unfortunately I'm past the 30 day return policy with Amazon and am hoping ASUS will be amazing enough to refund my money. I'm really bummed as I was excited about this router and have had nothing but amazing things to say about ASUS from my experience with my old router...I've recommend ASUS to my boys, but can't say I'll continue to recommend them with this recent experience.Anyone have any experience with returning products to ASUS?

    I have used it for almost two months and I am very satisfied. I use it for my Internet type is fiber 200 Mbps down/up from Axtel (X-Tremo).The equipment that my family use is:- 1 desktop (wired)- 2 laptops- 3 tablets- 4 smartphones- 3 Rokus (wired)- 1 Raspberry Pi 2 (wired)- 1 printer- 1 internet radio- 1 access point (wired)I did several stress tests, for example:- 3 netflixes (HD) running on the 3 rokus- 1 kodi (HD) running on the Raspberry Pi 2 (with OSMC)- 1 laptop running netflix (HD)- 1 smartphone running face time- 7 simultaneous downloads on the desktop computer- 1 internet radio playing musicAnd the router was at 55% peak at processing, really e user interface is very friendly, simple to use and intuitive. I am using the firmware ver .380_4164 12/23/e wireless coverage is very good, the router is on the first floor and I can keep full bars on the second floor (2.4 Ghz).This is my first Asus router and I can recommend it without a doubt.

    EDIT: So, after my extreme frustration, my mate gave me some simple pointers on how to do the configuration using a cell phone... which, it turns out, is in the longer ver of the set up doentation. Except that the screens do not match even a small with the doentation screens. So, the doca are extremely misleading... and the tech help is useless. However, if you can disregard all of that, the router seems to be working well now that it's set up. Definitely not for someone with limited experience setting up a router/modem combo should be taking on... but hopefully I won't have to deal with any of that for a long time now. I'm up to three stars because honestly, the doentation, CD tutorials, and absolutely useless tech help create this a no go for a LOT of people with limited tech experience without a very knowledgeable friend.Might be great—who knows? You just can’t actually use it if you’re a Mac user. In order to obtain the router working, you must hook it up to your laptop and do some configuration...but to do that you must use an Ethernet cable. I haven’t seen an Ethernet cable (or a CD drive) in a MAC since their OS was some animal or other. I called ASUS support, waited a LONG time to reach someone—his suggestion was to borrow a PC from someone so I could configure this. I bought this on the recommendation of a very smart, tech savvy mate (who happens to be one of the very few PC users I know) so I’m assuming that if you are a PC user, it will work well. But God support you if you use a Mac! I’m going to spend the additional cash and buy something that doesn’t require me to use ancient technology or “borrow a PC from a friend."

    Pros:+Consistent data processing and movement in the network+Takes up HALF the zone of most normal routers and no more falling antennas!!+Great Aesthetics+Awesome ASUS GUI+Easy setup for the beginner+Advanced settings for pros+Much more strong signal than the ASUS AC2400+Cool and adjustable LED lightingFor those of you that have problems with routers dying, I suggest you buy a laptop cooling pad and put the router on one of those. Heat buildup due to lack of airflow is the number one opponent of electronics. I purchased this Router from another place, but I wanted to spread my amazing experience about this router to everyone else because it has no reviews. ASUS you should really do more with the NEWEGGSPERT program and work on your customer service RMA process for AC2400 was about 2.5 years old and there have been a lot of advances with routers since then. I was having lots of problems with that router being able to give me consistent and high data flows on my network and I had a feeling it was either starting to fail or it was a limitation of the chips in the , I took a possibility and bought this router and it really is a amazing bargain!! You are getting a 3-core Intel processor that seems to really be able to handle the workloads. The 3rd core is supposed to be dedicated to VoIP use. Please note that The ASUS ROG 5400 Has a 4-core Intel, but all other ASUS routers use the Broadcom chips. This is Intel’s attempt to obtain into the market, and from what I can see they have done a really amazing US routers hands down have THE BEST GUI and ease of use over ANY other router I have ever used. As a Neweggspert I have tested a lot of routers! The mouse over support is a amazing fast reference, but a lot of of the people who place not good reviews simply do not know what they are doing. Immediately upon changing over to this router, I message a 15dbm gain in power! Which equates to over 10x the signal strength. Remember though we are talking a wireless signal that is prone to interference and we are in the milliwatt range. True globe performance for this router placed in a central zone in my basement android game me amazing coverage throughout my 1500 square foot house. Currently, this router does NOT contain ASUS AiMesh networking, but it will be included in a future update.During network saturation testing, I was able to fully use my 65 Gb/s from the internet (2xUHD Netflix) and MAX out my plex server to every device I own plus another 3 local computer streams. It handled everything perfectly, with zero issues. My plex server can place out about 7 converted streams and I only saturated the 5ghz wireless about 50%.That is AWESOME! I was able to set my Plex server to High quality instead of speed and now my wireless video is as amazing as my wired video, I was never able to do that on my ASUS 2400. Video load times were minimal and kept under 5 seconds, even ff worked perfectly!!Computer to computer and internet downloads were able to max out with rock solid ns:Cons-Power dongle is a 90 Deg angle on router connection and can turn off the power if you move the router.-Currently does not help ASUS AI Mesh networking-No manual included in the box, just fast setup-ASUS and the whole computer industry need to seriously work on customer service in this internet age, especially RMA service. You should all look at Motorola, their service system is EXEMPLARY!That is really about all there is for the cons.Other Thoughts:ASUS GREAT job on this router, it looks amazing and works even better and it is at the right price! We need more of these types of routers! I hate all the routers with more than 4 antennas and really the ONLY advantage to antennas is to be able to move them around for a bit more precise control of directing the signal, but that is the ONLY benefit to them, there is very small to GAIN by having them!!This router is excellent for the normal sized home, and once AI Mesh is incorporated into it then it will be the excellent base station for the extenders. For the price, it is really a amazing deal, most other routers are more expensive and have not good GUI’s, plus a lot of other brands of routers will disable your network with a loss of internet! ASUS keeps on cruising!UPDATE on AI MESH:FINALLY ASUS got off their behinds and released the promised AI mesh modernize for the Blue Cave, after I sent them an inquiry about it. I still have not used the Alexa or IFTTT functions yet, as I have been far too busy to set all that up on my intelligent devices, but once I do I will do a second update.A small background first, I am starting a home business and I required amazing internet to my garages, Honestly I was considering a Ubiquity setup, but for now it was cost prohibitive. I decided to obtain a second Blue Cave since the AI mesh came out for it. I decided to completely redo my network backbone with Cat6 shielded cables. This is the most necessary part if you live in RF saturated locations like Apartments or near a lot of RF like Cell phone towers, or even power stations. I think a lot of of the reviewers truly do not understand how wireless works, and expect miracles all the time.I did have some early bios issues with the Blue cave with dropping wifi, but it was ASUS wide bios because I had it with other routers as well. Those problem seem to have been completely cleared up for me. I do have one complaint to ASUS about their Blue Cave set up. You need a bypass link to go straight to the firmware flash, whether it be USB or internet. Because your initial router setup is a huge pain in the behind to obtain through, please I said I ran a brand fresh Cat6 shielded backbone which brings me to this point, ASUS you need to begin using shielded connectors in the back of your routers! because we are so saturated with RF in some locations that some people with have to use shielded cables. This is what actually makes the Cable companies transmission superior to most others. Which brings me to this. My initial review was for one Blue Cave. Now I can tell you about the best method to have SUPERIOR performance.1) An ac2600 should be enough for the average consumer, and remember this the 2600 is just for the wireless. I highly recommend that you obtain a couple of 1GB switches and use those and hardwire any PC's and HD and UHD televisions to your 1GB connections to the Blue Cave. Especially, if you wish the best looking picture or if you do a lot of online gaming. Wireless is fine for you tablets and phones obviously, just hold you wireless for those kinds of devices.2) Modernize your second devices Firmware while having it plugged into computer only.3) Hard-wire the back-bone from router to router I recommend to do it with Cat6 for the future, that method you do not lose valuable bandwidth for the router to talk to one another. You will do this by connecting the second Asus AI mesh router to the internet connection.I have 2 Blue caves, and even though they don't have quite the range I would like them to have they are about what you expect from a home router. And surely better than having 8 antenni flopping and falling all over the place. I have only had one problem during the early bios of the WiFi dropping occasionally, but that problem is gone. Asus has done a number of security updates and because of their perfect trend micro included I can see all probes and attacks that have been thwarted. This is the basic reason I chose to stick with ASUS is the superb firmware and GUI. It is can be overwhelming to a beginner at times, but you will be thankful for it, if you have used other routers as I have. ASUS was not targeted for a lot of of the latest security attacks. I do know there has been a lot of probing going on to search vulnerabilities. Having the Trend micro really helps!Sorry I got side tracked, AI mesh performance is really good, the routers now place your phones and tablets in the 2.4ghz band and higher bandwidth stuff in the 5ghz. I can now travel from one end of my property to the other, (1/4 a town block) and have full coverage. Since, all of my building have Steel siding it limits my range quite a bit. The only problem you need to understand with handing off is that it will be transparent most of the time. I however use Skype and Wechat a ton and you will obtain a little time (usually no more than 10 second) where it will have an "unstable connection" but it will regain the connection but will not drop the call, most of the time. But for everything else other than live voice or video chat, you should not message any transition.Overall, I am very satisfied with ASUS hardware, it is very reliable compared to other brands. I do think ASUS needs to step back as a company and look at their Software division and their Customer service division and improve them a lot more, especially if they wish to stay on top of the market. A lot of other brands are catching up to them. You really need to provide the best customer service if you wish to be number one, in the future. BTW almost all the computer and the home network companies customer service stinks. They all cna improve dramatically.Feel free to ask me any questions and please rate up this review.

    ASUS Dual-Band Gigabit WiFi Gaming Router (AC3100) with MU-MIMO, supporting AiProtection network security by Trend Micro, AiMesh for Mesh WiFi system, and WTFast game Accelerator (RT-AC88U) []  2020-1-1 18:48

    Although my Apple Time Capsule router (the turret version) was easily outperformed by newer routers on the market, I delayed replacing it in hopes that Apple would come out with a newer model. But with Apple formally announcing the (misguided) decision to end the Airport/Time Capsule product line, there was no longer a reason to wait. After reading WAY too a lot of router reviews, I decided on the RT-AC88U based on its uniformly perfect try one worry, coming from an Airport Time Capsule, was the difficulty that might be involved in setting up a non-Apple product. As it turned out, there was no reason for concern. Following the easy quick begin instructions, I was up and running in no time. Even better, by using the Intelligent Connect feature on the Asus, I only have one SSID now, and the router decides automatically whether its better to put a given device on the 2.4 or 5Ghz band, based on traffic, interference, ditionally, I wanted to continue using my Time Capsule router for Time Machine backups, and this turned out to work perfectly, though you do need to follow the instructions I found on the Apple help site. (Those instructions were for an Eero system, but they worked just fine for the Asus.)My wireless setup now is as follows for RCN Gigabit service: Ethernet cable from RCN modem to the Asus WAN port--I turned off the wireless channels on the RCN modem to avoid interference. Time Capsule connected to one of the Ethernet ports on the Asus--I also turned off the wireless channels on the Time Capsule. iMac is connected to Asus via ethernet. 2 Canon printers, 2 Echo Dots plus 7 other devices are connected to the Asus wirelessly. Everything works flawlessly... so far! Coverage in my apartment is definitely better and connections are remaining concern with the Asus is reliability as the failure rate within a year reported in Amazon reviews seems very high. A product with more 1-star than 4-star reviews is worrisome, but I'm hoping for the best. Time will tell. Thank you for taking the time to read my review and I hope you search it helpful in making a buying decision.

    First, the reviews are misleading here. They are not all for the Blue Cave. They are mixing a dozens of Asus router reviews into on thread? Very cond, for Blue Cave only. Its a amazing router but I changed from 5 to 2 stars after days of ongoing problem getting IFTTT and Alexa to milar to other reviews here there is a serious issue that tech help cannot solve. Help is responsive by email but do not know what they are anning to return this router as it does not work as described. A true shame given its so amazing in other so the Asus router application is unable to display true time traffic for a specific device you select on your network. So the application needs work n't sell a product and advertise features that don't work Asus!

    The security key did not work...It kept restarting over and over and over , but never installed...There was already a pre-populated security key entered in when I tried to install, almost as if another user had downloaded it before me...very suspicious...I've used Trend Micro in the past and never had this problem purchasing directly through Trend Micro directly or renewing directly through them, so I know when another download is fishy.....
