Best Buy Customer Reviews

Well worth the extra money5 Posted by: from: on This router is well worth the money. I had a combo router and cable modem in the past. It had no range and didn’t allow me to VPN into work. I replaced it with a separate cable modem and this router. This router is future proof. It has many advanced settings. Most of them you probably won’t need in a home setting but are easy to understand and I had no issue setting the router up in a short amount of time. The range is incredible. I only have a 1300 square foot house and in no place do I not get a full signal. I even get a signal way out in my yard. I highly recommend you buy this router and skip the cheap stuff. You’ll not regret it.

One of the best wifi routers on the market5 Posted by: from: Chicago, IL on I've owned and tried many different manufacturer's wifi router and by far this is the best for the money. It has great features and adjustable settings and a nice range of coverage. The FIrmware for this unit has stabilized and this unit won't disappoint.

Fast, stable hardware and versatile software5 Posted by: from: on Specs are good, and hardware is well-built. Wireless is reliable and fast, range is reasonable. But it's all about the software support. ASUS actually does a very good job with releasing frequent updates, and there are a number of third-party firmware options (Merlin, DD-WRT, OpenWRT, Tomato, etc.)

No Airprint!, otherwise good router1 Posted by: from: on I've tried for many months to make it work with Airprint. ASUS does not support Airprint and has not produced a fimware revision to fix it. I've tried all the proposed fixes I could find on the web to no avail. This deficiency greatly reduces the utility of my iPad and iPhone. I'm going to junk my ASUS router and buy a new router so I can use airprint.

Awesome router with great range and speed5 Posted by: from: on I have a ps4, ps3, smart tv, 2 smart blu ray players, 2 desktops, about 4 laptops and 3 ipads and 4 iphones on the wireless and they all are super fast and the range is incredible also.

works well5 Posted by: from: on Very easy to set up. It has been running for several weeks now and I haven't needed to restart it. Before getting this router, I would have difficulty maintaining a connection, especially on weekends. But this works well.
