Answer:
The Phaser aspect didn't pass safety standards. the Stun mode and Kill mode would switch randomly. Several dolphins and dogs lost their lives during testing. It was finally decided to disable that feature until further testing would prove successful.

Answer:
Also keep in mind that your speed is only as fast as your slowest link. While the wireless connection may be faster than 1Gbps, if your internet connection is 50Mbps, you are not going to notice a difference over 802.11N speeds. So in surfing the internet you won't see a benefit. However if you are transferring large f… see more Also keep in mind that your speed is only as fast as your slowest link. While the wireless connection may be faster than 1Gbps, if your internet connection is 50Mbps, you are not going to notice a difference over 802.11N speeds. So in surfing the internet you won't see a benefit. However if you are transferring large files between machines in your home or a lot of files you would see transfer rates would be faster. While N devices can support 2.4GHz or 5GHz frequencies, with AC it is in 5GHz range. While I don't have any AC devices yet on my network, I do see better range on the devices that support 5GHz vs the ones that are only 2.4GHz on the N band. Also keep in mind how AC gets these speeds, they use a much larger frequency range to transmit the signal. The bad part of this is if you live in a high population density area (think apartment/condo/townhome) you may get lots of bleed over and interference. The AC signal will travel a lot further so you will be fighting with your neighbors more. I happen to live on several acres in more of a rural environment so this isn't an issue for me. I like cranking up the power because I get much better coverage. see less

This gives me 28.7 Mbps on wireless in the kitchen, same as a direct ethernet connection in the computer room. I am amazed! see less

Answer:
I had this exact same question and called ASUS. They said the product themselves are exactly the same on the inside. The "U" stands for universal (e.g. can be sold by Amazon). While the "R" stands for re-seller. (e.g. meaning it can be sold though stores like Best Buy)

Answer:
There are 3 Primary channels, 1 for 2.4GHz and 2 for 5GHz. Each has its' own SSID out of the box.
If you turn on the Smart Connect feature, this drops to a single SSID used across all 3 channels, and the router then decides which channel to put which device on. Works quite well so far!
In addition, each of the 3 main c… see more

In addition, each of the 3 main channels has 3 possible Guest channels for a total of 9 possible Guest channels. I have not tested to see if Smart Connect works for the Guest channels as well, but I doubt it.
So, to answer your question, if you're trying to annoy your neighbors......this CAN broadcast up to 12 total SSID's. see less

I ended up hanging an old AP off the DMZ of my firewall port for guest access and use the AC66U as my main AP for the wireless devices in the home. Other than that, the device seems decent enough. I have a USB hard drive hanging off it to share DLNA stuff, but also do this via GoogleTV box too. Lots of options these days. see less

I am streaming HD content to 2 Xbox360's and 3 streams from an HD Home Run Prime Cable card tuner. I had to put both Xbox360's on the wired Ethernet because the wireless could not handle it. That is why I am looking at the AC68u. see less

Answer:
Best home router I have ever used. I am a network administrator by trade, and Asus could teach Cisco some things on ease of configuration. Easy to setup, yet very powerful. Does everything I need it to do, very well: VPN, file sharing, printer sharing, and guest network. Great device.

Yes. This is supported by dd-wrt. You can type in "asus" here and see that this model is fully supported. http://www.dd-wrt.com/site/support/router-database

Also, security is the best reason to use dd-wrt on any router you can. If you've listened to the tech news lately you know that home routers firmware tend to be full of bugs that aren't always fixed and home routers are becoming a major attack vector. It isn't worth it for most manufacturers to continue to update their older routers firmware b/c they want you to purchase new one. So yes, it is supported and, yes it is important. :) see less
