    "no lag...Fast !...Since I bought the router, I have seen a definite change in clarity of videos, everything is faster, I never drop wifi signal in any floor/corner of my house and I am able to get over 60MBPS download over WIFI from the First floor of my house where as the router sitting in the coat closet near the entry way on a 100MB pipe....Also I would like to point out, the newer ASUS router (one that I had) and future newer ones will use MU-MIMO technology - it's an awesome piece of hardware to have in your router as long as your current wireless device supports it, almost no current device on the market supports this yet."
