5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievably fast, 25 Nov. 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: ASUS RT-AC66U AC1750 Gigabit WLAN Router (Accessory)
Blistering fast speed, my Virgin router constantly dropped connection (Netgear) so I paid over £130 for a dual N Netgear one, this also kept dropping connection and also I was getting max speeds wirelessly of around 30mbps. Baring in mind my internet connection is upto 120mbps.
I use my computer in my loft bedroom, which is on the third floor, I use a Mac, the router is downstairs near my front door.
I now get, in my loft, wirelessly on 5gz N band, 102mbs internet connection.
Buy this router, it is the best on the market, easy to set up, looks nice also has lots of features.

5 Months later and still no problems, no dropped connections, but unfortunately havent been able to find a mac compatible 802.11ac adaptor to test out the 802.11ac speeds.
AI cloud works excellent, and the port forwarding is very easy to setup, (CCTV via APP).

Hi Erdo, I have Virgin fibre optic broadband, and their supplied router, wifi dead in parts of the house ... does this router attach to the Virgin router via Ethernet cable to extend its range , or did you actually un-screw the Virgin cable from your old Virgin router and plug it directly into this new router?

Hi, I put the virgin modem/router into modem mode, you have to login to it with your computer, the IP address and password is at the back, then you simply connect the virgin modem to the asus router with an Ethernet cable, I now have no dead spots and the wifi doesn't cut out like it used to, if you are using a PC I suggest investing in a 802.11ac adaptor so you have even less interference. Hope that helped

Thanks Erdo, that's helpful. I have a Mac and already have access to the superhub admin, and have just found the modem mode section. So that sounds easy. One last question, my router is in my home office, in my converted garage (which is part of the house) but at the moment as it has to go few a few walls the wifi has dead spots. Do you think this router is powerful enough to reach the dead zones? Did that happen for you?
Thanks Martin.

Hi, well my router is downstairs near my front door, and my MacBook phone tv WeMo devices all in my loft conversion room, 3rd floor, and even in the bathroom get full wifi signal and when testing on speedtest.net I get at least 100mbps usually around 110mbps. So it should reach that far for you. I also get signal in my garden. You can get an ariel adaptor that screws into this router aswel so worst case you can buy that also. This is the best router I've ever had and I've been through a lot! Hopefully it works out for you!
