You must manually enter a URL [...] then change to a language other than English, then update the firmware. (The current version from the ASUS website is 22.214.171.124.90 as of 1/13/2012) Of course, that means you need to download the firmware first, since you can't connect to the Internet with the factory firmware. And of course, a router is required for most people to access the Internet, so... well, you can see where I'm going with this.
After the firmware update, things were much better. I had the Internet connection set up in a few minutes, and the speed was unbelievable. Certainly the fastest consumer wireless on the market right now. It has nice features, like 6 different SSIDs for guest networks (3 for each band.) You can choose whether or not to give those networks access to your primary network, and since you can set up multiple SSIDs, you can have different settings for each. It also has parental controls, good QoS, a VPN server and some other nice features. It supports Zoneedit for dynamic DNS, so I was pretty happy about that. (Neither the Cisco or the Linksys models I have tried do.)
One feature that's present in the Linksys E4200, but not on this router, is an SSL web GUI. I work in IT, and it bothers me administering my firewall over plaintext HTTP. Probably not that big a deal to home users, but I don't think it's that difficult to implement an HTTPS server for the admin GUI.Read more ›
Thank you for your feedback regarding the RT-N66u and for informing other users of this firmware issue. We are aware of the issue some users may be facing with firmware 126.96.36.199.72 and are working to have 188.8.131.52.90 installed in future shipments.
For users that have not installed the latest firmware, type http://192.168.1.1 into a web browser and enter your username and password if you have one, or enter the default username "admin" and password "admin" all lower case and without the quotations. Proceed to Advance Settings->Administration->Firmware Upgrade. Click "Check" and the router will find the latest firmware and prompt for permission to install. If this feature is not working, add the file manually from your computer.

Please note it is recommended to perform the firmware update with an ethernet LAN connection between the computer.

I do networking for a living and figured even though I'd seen reports of the shipping factory firmware being broken in English mode, it would be no problem.
WHAT A PAIN!!!!!!!!!!! Come on Asus!!!!
The short and sweet version of how to get your router up and running with 184.108.40.206.72:
*Download 220.127.116.11.90 firmware from [...]
*Extract RT-N66U_18.104.22.168_90.trx to somewhere on your computer
*Log in to 192.168.1.1 (User:admin Pass:admin)
*Complete the initial setup wizard using any info you want. Just GET THROUGH IT. It will display a broken page at the end.
*Enter 192.168.1.1 in your web browser
*Click on "Administration" on the left
*Click on "Firmware Upgrade" on the top tab
*Switch the language box in the top-right-hand corner from "English" to something else. I used French.
***WAIT FOR IT TO FINISH***
*When it's complete, choose "English" again from the language drop-down.
*Go back to 192.168.1.1 and complete your initial router configuration.
The good news is that after I got 22.214.171.124.90 on the router all seems to be running smoothly.
I was replacing an ASUS RT-N56U and I have found so far:
*SIGNIFICANTLY better range on both 2.4 and 5ghz bands (Maybe 3-6db increase at an 80ft distance)
I'm hoping that when I get a wireless adapter that supports 450Mbps that I'll be able to see the huge difference.
I like the way it physically looks (Like some type of network Samurai device) and I love that I can swap out the antennas as I see fit. It looks pretty bad-ass actually.
It's been running smooth for a day now.
The specs on this thing are awesome.Read more ›

Just got TWC Maxx, stupid me, bought a new router unable to hand the speed on wireless. If you are looking for a 100+ Mbps router, get an AC router, not this one.Published 8 hours ago by Big Bhut
It's great when it works. It might work fine in a mode besides repeater but it drops out all the time and is a slow pain to get back online.Published 11 hours ago by Charlie Wilkinson
