There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I chose this device because of some of the advanced features, believing they would help with certain over utilization issues I have with a previous wireless router I was sadly running the CPU on that router into the ground, so I needed something a bit more powerful.
There is a defect in my router. LAN devices do not communicate with each other, this is a sporadic issue unique to this router, every other wireless router works out of the box with no issues in this respect. Devices like the Roku can not be connected at times to the IP remote, or controlled by/seen by a smart device with an app. the wireless printer is rarely visible and usable. Logitech Harmony remote base is also giving an error that the device isn't on the same network. This mostly happens on the wireless, however the problem does happen on Wired connections as well.
none of this is why they get 1 star. it's defective. I get that. this happens with any electronic equipment or manufactured device. I write this review because their support is one bad experience after another. I have found 1 other person on an obscure forum that has the same issue, but no resolution was available. I had already updated the firmware, factory reset, and gone through every setting available to try to resolve this issue. I went through the paces with their email support who also had me do the same steps I've already performed.
1. The first Rep I worked with barely asked any questions before stating it needed to be sent in to be repaired. I agreed since the equipment was faulty.
2. They do not work with their customers to get the RMA done. They will not provide a shipping label for their defective product.
3. They will not provide a shipping label for their defective product.
4. When they do receive the product for repair, their technician doesn't pay attention to what the issue is, and states they cannot duplicate it. The only response I get when they send the item back is "test Ok, cannot duplicate issue"
5. They do not return calls when they say they will.
6. I have yet to actually speak to someone regarding this issue, and over all this has been ongoing for months.
7. Had the tech that received the device done proper troubleshooting, they would have connected more than one device. they probably tested WAN, and found no issues. I wrote them detailed information on what the problem was. had they connected several devices and tested communication between them over the local area network they would have duplicated the issue.
I am done with ASUS. so far, the last 3 products I have purchased from them have been defective. I may just have lousy luck, but after spending hours with their lack of support, I, am, Done. I gave them every opportunity to make this right.
I recommend using Name brand routers only the only 2 wireless brands I suggest to others are Linksys, and Netgear. I've actually said that for the last 10 years to all my customers. Asus is new to the router scene. I had high hopes, I've been an Asus customer since their early days when I used to go to computer shows to build a PC, before shopping on the internet was possible. In the past I would have recommended them as the best motherboards. That is no longer the case either I'm afraid. they are over priced, under supported, and can not keep their promises.
Buy a Netgear, half the price, none of the pain.

I contacted Asus support (worthless) and aside from barely being able to understand the technician he was kind enough to walk me through various steps such as: 1. Is your router plugged in? 2. Is your router connected to your modem? 3. Have you updated the firmware? 4. Have you contacted your local cable company.
He told me I would need to send the router for repair at my expense at a cost of $30 each way for shipping and $279 to repair the router. A new Asus AC5300 costs $279 on Amazon so they are essentially asking me to pay more to repair my old router than it would cost to buy a new one.
My solution: I just bought a Netgear AX8 and the Asus will become a very expensive door stop.
Never again Asus!

Que tiene muchas opciones de configuración por si llegas a necesitarlas (aunque algunas no funcionan como deberían como el gestor de descargas, que va muy lento)
No me gustó
- Que en la caja te hacen creer que tiene mucho alcance y terminó teniendo un poco menos alcance que mi router pasado (un AirPort Extreme)
- Te dicen que acelera tus videojuegos para que no tengas lag y en los videos te hacen creer que esa función también es para consolas pero cuando usas la función te dice que está en etapa BETA y que por ahorita solo funciona solo para juegos de PC
- Las red de 5GHz es normal que tenga menos alcance que la de 2.4, pero no pensé fuera tan poca, solo unos 6-8 metros
- Cuando llamas al soporte técnico aquí en México ni siquiera saben que existe este modelo, y no te dan soluciones
De Noviembre 2018 a Mayo 2019 pase por 4 routers antes que este, y hasta hoy este ha funcionado a la perfección, pero he aprendido en base a los otros 4, la historia a continuación...
1. Noviembre 2018: Compré el Asus RT-AC88U, funcionó 1 día, hubo un corte de luz como de 5 minutos y cuando volvió el router ya no funcionaba.
2.- Enero 2019: Mismo Asus RT-AC88U, funciono bien 1 mes en amabas redes las 2.4 y la 5GHz, al mes dejo de funcionar la 5GHz pero como seguia funcionando la 2.4 me lo quede como hasta Abril donde comencé a presentar problemas de que mis dispositivos batallaban para conectarse a esta red y tenía que estar reseteando el router o apagarlo y volver a encender.
3.- Abril 2019: TP-LINK Archer C3200, funciono bien pero su rango de señal era igual al del modem/router proporcionado por mi proveedora del servicio de internet (Megacable) y rendimiento menor al de los Asus que ya estaba acostumbrado.
4.- Abril 2019: LinkSyS AC3200 (WRT32XB): Rango de señal muy débil y velocidad en la transmisión de datos menor al de los Asus del cual ya estaba acostumbrado
5.- Mayo 2019: ASUS RT-AC5300: Hasta hoy el router mas caro que he comprado y en base a lo que me había pasado con los anteriores tenía que prevenir...
- La transmisión de datos es rapidísima no importa si estoy viendo stories en instagram, videos en youtube, peliculas en netflix todo lo carga en menos de 1 segundo.
- Tengo 3 redes disponibles para balancear la carga de todos los dispositivos conectados
- Su espectro de red es amplio aunque todo depende del lugar donde este, en mi situación y para que tengan un poco mas de perspectiva el router da servicio a 3 casas todas construidas en concreto y con multiples divisiones de concreto, el router se encuentra ubicado en una segunda planta de la casa 3, en el supuesto de que la casa 1 es la de la izquierda, la 2 es la de en medio y la 3 es la de la derecha, cada una aprox tiene 5 metros de frente por algunos 30 metros de fondo y a todas nos alcanza a dar servicio, el espectro podría ser mayor pero por tantos muros la señal comienza a debilitarse.
- Aprox tenemos 3 smart tv, 4 computadoras, y 5 celulares conectados a la red y aun asi todo este funcionando a la vez no he notado alguna disminución en la transmisión aunque todo esta separado en redes para su mejor funcionamiento, osea algunos aparatos estan en la red 2.4 otros en la 5G1 y los demas en la 5G2.
RECOMENDACIÓN en base a la experiencia...
Después de los acontencimientos que me pasó con los otros routers, lo que aconsejo para que protejas tu router y mas que nada tu inversión por que es una lana, es que ademas del router compres un No break para que en caso de que se vaya la luz o algo puedas apagar el router sin arriesgar a que se dañe ya que la bateria del no break dependiendo lo que tengas conectado te dará desde 5 a 30 minutos mas de energía, y por lo mismo de que es un router y esta trabajando 24/7 se calienta mucho también esto puede hacer que se descomponga porque maneja componente electrónicos tan pequeños que expuestos a gran cantidad de calor pueden descomponerse entonces para esto compra también una de estas base con ventilador como para una laptop y déjasela conectada permanentemente al router para evitar el exceso de calor, así que para que estés protegido si necesitaras adicional al precio del router una inversión mas de aprox 2 mil pesos pero créeme vale completamente la pena.
First, after importing a config file from Asus Ac87U or Ax88U, the AC5300 cannot be logged in , wifi cannot be connected.
Secondly,Asus ddns does not allow previously registered name, complaining it is already registered! Yes, it is registered by me, why cannot let me in? I have to register a different name!
Thirdly, technical support is worse than none! I emailed the issue and attached the config file. A reply email promised to resolve the issue within 48 hours. Then another email asks for configuration file again! Also asks for log file. I said in my original email clearly the issue is that I am unable to login, how can I provide the log file? Did the supply read me original email?! So I replied to the email, then got immediate nresponse: mailbox is full! Then I go go Asus support page to upload the config file. No luck! Their email server is upgrading and does not accept anything!!!
I purchased the AX58U from another retailer and was quite excited to be finally getting an Asus router. While it was easy to set up, it didn't meet expectations. Here are the issues I encountered:
- the 5.0 GHz network stopped showing up on a list of availagle networks even though I hadn't hidden it. Re-setting the router didn't help.
- I had to re-boot the router for 5 consecutive days to get it to work. Each re-boot took at least 3 efforts before it successfully connected to the internet.
- the router seemed to have difficulty handling about 10 devices connected at the same time even though it's Wifi6 and rated for 2,000 sq. ft.
- it couldn't handle my son's part-time, casual, on-line gaming.
I decided to return the router and get a router with a faster speed and could handle more devices at the same time. That's why I bought the RT5300 from amazon.
Again, I was looking forward to getting an Asus router. I felt somewhat bad for, maybe, overloading the "little" AX58U. The reviews for the RT5300 were/are amazing for the most part and stepping back to Wifi5 wasn't a concern as it was supposedly just as fast and could handle more devices.
The RT5300 is a huge router. I've never seen a bigger router. My son and I were quite excited to set it up and get going. My son was excited to see how it could handle his gaming. I was confident about everything else based on the reviews I read on the internet and on amazon.
Unfortunately, we could not get the router set up. We spent almost an hour trying to connect the RT5300 to the internet but it wouldn't connect. I sent a detailed email to Asus support and, amazingly, they responded the next day. By that time, I had done more reading on the internet and discovered there issues not only with the RT5300 but with Asus routers, in general, and Asus customer support.
One person had his RT5300 die after 24 hours. Another person's died after 6 months and a third person's went belly-up shortly after the warranty expired. Moreover, Asus's customer support appears to be awful across its product offerings. I'm amazed that Asus has received the highest customer satisfaction ratings on PC Mag for 9 consecutive years. That's an amazing accomplishment with poor customer support.
Anecdotally, Asus's routers seem to have issues about 15% - 20% of the time. Unfortunately for me, I'm one of the unlucky ones in the 15% - 20%. I was quite excited to ge joining the other 80% 85% who are loving their Asus router and enjoying all the features. I was looking forward to utilizing all those features and enjoying the benefits. It's not going to happen now and probably never will. I returned both routers and I echo the words of everybody who say, "buy at your own risk" I've never encountered a router that wouldn't connect to the internet brand new, out-of-the-box. My previous router was a REFURBISHED Linksys that ran without issue for over 5 years.
It seems to me that Asus is resting on its laurels. They do not seem to be doing anything to try to improve their customer support. Sooner or later, this is going to catch up to them. I won't be considering any Asus products in the future as a result of this experience, not even their computers.
As for my router story, I bought a TP-Link Archer AX90 from amazon for a great price. It's still on sale for $300. I've only had it operational for 5 days. I'll post my feedback on that router under that product in a few weeks to give the router a good run.
To all those considering an Asus router, beware and buy at your own risk. If you run into any issues shortly after you buy it, return it ASAP. Don't bother with customer support.
