"Great performance, solid build quality, loaded with latest features and IPv6 support" - By Eurodude in NJ (NJ, USA)
Edit 2 (2012-02-25). Here is an update now that I have owned it a while (5 1/2 weeks): 1. FYI Asus is releasing firmware version 102 on Monday (those who have been able to get a hold of that version in the meantime said it works great and has resolved the few issues that remained, which affected some users, depending on which advanced features they needed). They have been very quick, compared to other networking companies especially, to release new firmware after getting bug reports and working on the fixes ([...]).
2. As an update, my RT-N66U has been up (without a reboot) and running stably since I first configured it 5 1/2 weeks ago. (It does get rebooted to load the new firmware of course, just like a Windows PC needs a reboot after installing updates).
Very easy set-up, and this thing is FAST! I coupled this with a new ASUS PCE-AC68, and I'm getting 877.5 Mbps transfer rate at -42 to -50 dbm (router and computer are on another floor, and almost across the house). My 5g capable devices' speeds are screaming, and my 2.4g devices are loving it too. The signal strength far surpasses the RT-N56U that I replaced with this. The USB connections were easy to set up, and I'm able to stream 720p video through the drive attached to the router. I haven't experimented with 1080, but my guess is that I'm good. Make sure you read the instructions to see how to set up your antennae. It's nothing more than fanning them out (vs. straight up like the picture), but it makes a bit of difference.
"Stylish looks and great performance! Can we call this 'Dark Knight Rises'?" - By Jayhan (CA)
Update (10/1/12): I downgraded the firmware back to 164. Since I upgraded the firmware to 220, I have already rebooted the router about 4~5x, the internet connection suddenly stops. I don't know if it's just me, but I feel that the router is a bit warmer when I touch it using firmware 220. I don't have any temperature measuring device so I can't confirm that it's really warmer (I did not adjust the transmit power setting, fyi).
Update (9/12/12): I updated the firmware to version 126.96.36.199.220, and the 2 previous problems I stated is still existing.. I don't mind it that much but I still hope Asus fixes it soon. Workaround for 1.) I connect my PC to 2.4Ghz. 2.) I use Splashtop from my iPhone to connect to my home PC from office.
AiCloud looks promising, supposedly you could view/play your media files from your iphone/ipad and ... full review
I have 2 xbox's in house and a PS3.Two of them wireless and one hardwired.Streaming video's hosting COD black ops 18 player games regularly. I have had the linksys E4200,and the NETGEAR WNDR37AV.The Netgear was ok but had firmware issues always changing and finding more issues afterwards.The linksys E4200 had to reduce the MTU to 1365 and still got laggy while hosting games.The Netgear performed better than the Linksys. I always find myself at smallnetbuilder.com reading about the new routers and reviews they do and so on.I was impressed on the throughput of the new ASUS RT-N56U AND THE OVERALL REVIEW PERIOD.The price was great also.I have to say it was very easy to configure this router setup and install.So far this router has outperformed the netgear and linksys with ease.No lag at all while hosting games,streams HD video's great superfast speeds.No complaints at all!! And believe me the ... full review
"A Beast of a Router!" - By Chris B. (South Florida, USA)
Let me get the disclaimer out of the way in saying that this review is based on a beta version that I received through a beta program. With that said do keep in mind that some things may differ from the final retail product but for the most part part things should generally be the same.
Ill do my best to keep this review straight to the point. Also keep in mind that my previous highest router was a Netgear WNDR3700 running third party firmware Gargoyle. To make a comparison to this router isn't really fair but its also my only point of reference.
Design You either love it or you hate it. In my opinion the design looks industrial, futuristic and maybe even over the top with the antennas extended out; it makes me think of a Robotic Spider. The design may not have the universal appeal ... full review
For the past two years, I've been using a Linksys e1200 for my single family home. We just sold the home and moved into a town home community. To say that the 2.4ghz band is overly crowded in our new home is an understatement. The 2.4 band has 11 channels to choose from, however, many overlap leaving three (1,6,11) that are typically the best for performance. Of the neighboring 38 wifi networks, only one was 5ghz. My ISP provides me with a 50Mbps connection and when plugged in via ethernet to my e1200, speedtest.net states that I receive 54Mbps down. Over the crowed 2.4 wireless, I receive around 18Mbps within close range and around 2Mbps on the opposite side of the house.
I started reviewing many options on Amazon for 5ghz routers. The latest standard, 802.11ac looks very promising, but none of ... full review
"Absolutely stunning router" - By Mark (Tennessee, USA)
The title says it all: this is an absolutely stunning router. I've upgraded to the RT-N65U from a Linksys E3000, which was also a very nice router, but this new Asus completely blows the Linksys out of the water. A 2 year warranty is somewhat rare these days, and very welcome. The CPU at 500Mhz is already in the upper end of consumer routers as it is, but it actually features two CPUs -- one for each wireless radio, as I've read, which is nearly unhead of.
I have never come across a router that was this easy to setup. You don't need to bother with any annoying CD or complicated menu. Just plugging a network cable into it causes Windows to automatically discover the router & that it needs to be setup for the first time, and up pops a notification bubble from the tray directing you to ... full review
"Solid Access Point, Good GUI, Fast, Mostly Simple" - By joShu (Pacific Northwest)
I needed to get a wireless signal to a part of the house where my existing router's wireless signal did not reach. However, I had a cat5 cable going from the router to the remote part of the house. IOW, I needed a wireless Access Point (AP). There were several options but the EA-N66R fit the bill for me: it plugs into my cat5 and provides fast, solid wireless connectivity to that part of the house.
Setup: I followed the little manual to get going. 1. Plugged my laptop directly into it. 2. Started a browser and pointed it to [...] like it told me. 3. The admin console of the EA-N66R came up, I logged in and then configured it. 3a. I could have also used it instead as a wireless repeater or an wireless ethernet adapter. But I needed the AP so that is the button I ... full review
