Great replacement for stock supplied (rubbish!) routers, highly recommended
on 9 July 2015
Fantastic router - I can't recommend enough.
I have replaced my Sky Fibre router with this one, and am amazed by the difference in service, but more so the functions it offers.
I run ASUS Merlin software on it, and it runs flawlessly - the wireless throughout the house is at least twice as good - if not more!
The only bad points I have had with it are;
1) On a recent power cut the router "forgot" the MAC address spoof from the old router, so the internet wouldnt connect. Easily Sorted.
2) Apparently these routers have a microSD slot on them (under the housing, not accessible to the outside) so to get at them, you have to take it apart and risk losing the warranty. This makes little sense to me, surely this is a selling feature! Come on Asus!
3) My wife thinks its ugly. Meh, what to women know! :P
4) Requires a bit of Linux knowledge to get the very best out of it - but most things can be sorted via the GUI.
Overall, love it. Recommended it to friends and family.
