Hi. Will this be ok to let me extend my wireless network to an office in my garden? I have a Virgin Superhub and (predictably :o) the signal won't rea 18 days ago
Yes, it can be used in this fashion. However, it may be a better option to change the superhub mode to "modem only", that way the router would then take care of the signal and would possibly reach your garden. If not, then it can be used as a repeater, but to be honest there are better (cheaper) options to do this with than a router of this ilk.
Can this modem replace the BT open Reach modem as well? ie is this also a VDSL modem as well as? 17 Jul 2014
No! This is a wireless router only, and not a modem as well. I have this at our second home, but don't really recommend it. Not because of it's performance specifically, but because it is incredibly user-unfriendly, and difficult to set up. There are some functions I have never been able to set up properly, and Customer Support was next to useless. At my main home, I have a Buffalo Airstation nfiniti Dual Band modem router (so you won't need a separate modem), and it is brilliant - also better range than the Asus. Streams 3D HD Video to my Media PC perfectly.
You would need a separate ADSL modem to plug into the N66U to get it to work on a BT line.
Will this router work with plusnet fibre 16 Jul 2014
if the plusnet fiber router is used as a modem rather than a router I do not see why not. I also recommend to use this firmware with the RT-N66U Top quality hardware and excellent support for the firmware. http://www.lostrealm.ca/tower/node/79
Is the router stable (Lasts days without reboots or crashes) and will it work with the talktalk youview box? 31 May 2014
I've found the router extremely stable. Don't know about talk talk box though.
Would this work with Talk Talk Fibre Broadband we have a BT Openreach box on the wall with a HUAWEI HG532 Router currently which struggles with range 26 Mar 2014
Yes it will - think of it simply as a 'router swop-over'. The BT Openreach box is a modem which makes the connection to the BT fibre network - the router just piggy-back's onto it. Similar to The Doc, I've used many routers (netgear, belkin, linksys) and the ASUS RT-N66U is by far the faster and best wireless coverage. It's an excellent router. There are also good options to install 3rd Party firmware upgrades such as 'merlin' - although these are purely optional.
can you use this with sky broadband as my internet is very flaky and slow thanks for your help. 28 days ago
If you're on Sky DSL you could either use this in addition to your sky modem - or if you want one device to do everything you'd be better off with the DSL-N66U which includes a DSL modem.
Help, please! How do I connect the Asus RT-N66U to my Talk Talk router and computer? Thank you! 11 hours ago
I'm not sure of the talk talk setup so can't answer with any degree of certainty. Im guessing you have adsl and not fibre here? My assumption would be that the talk talk box would stay as the modem/router and the Asus would become the wireless access point. If the talk talk box can be configured in modem only mode then everything else can be handled by the Asus. This is desirable! I think the best course of action would be to speak to talk talk support.
Hi, BT sports and HD channels do not work with my current router. Do they work with this one? I don't want to use the HH5 as it's terrible! 1 day ago
I haven't had any issues with HD channels can't comment about BT sport. With QOS settings it really day to set up video as highest priority.
Can I use it along side Huawei HG 635 with talktalk fibre ? Also can you tell me how to configure it ? i am planning to use it for VPN use please. 6 days ago
I don't know. I followed the online setup guide. I am not an expert.
