5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 12 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Asus RT-N66U - 900Mbps Dual Band Wireless N Router, Gigabit LAN/WAN, 2x USB, Print FTP UPnP VPN Server, IPv6, 8x SSID, Wireless 3D HD content streaming, 3 Year Warranty (Personal Computers)
Fantastic router. Plug and play worked instantly with my BT infinity openreach modem. Looks great very fast and responsive webUI much more responsive than my BTHomeHub3.

Pros:
Responsive webUI
8 guest networks (with access resitrctions)
10 VPN accounts
USB HDD access
Can run bittorrent client on router.
DLNA server on router.
All ports gigiabit (WAN and LAN).
Built in IPv6 support (even via tunneling!)

Cons:
Not much in the way of client controls
Can't set hostnames for clients (makes it difficult to see whats what)
Can't review detailed information on clients (connection speed, lease time etc)
Some hosts wont play nice with the VPN (participially the intranet)
Can't get torrent client to work!
You forward ports to IP addresses not MAC addresses. (So you need to setup manual assignment or use static IPs)

You really have nothing to lose by getting this router, I'd class myself as a power user not a computer expert or anything but I have odd needs and this never fails to provide, built in BT and DLNA AND VPN?! Crickey this thing is fast too.

Looking at the "syslog" et.c. it's clear this is a linux box running busybox. And Unashamedly so, really I don't know why it surprised me but it's good to know and explains why there is so much in the way of third party software.

That said, if you don't know the terms I'm using (linux, bit torrent, DLNA and VPN) then you'd probably be better off saving your money and looking at a high end TP-Link or Tenda router(not as feature rich or polished but aimed at performance and cost) than something like this which is a money no object feature rich router as it's no faster than the ~50 routers they provide.
