Strengths of the product

NONE!!!!!

Weaknesses of the product

Garbage

Additional Comments

Bought this router had problems with it after 1 month. Constantly on with ASUS customer support for hours! Finally this router worked off and on for a bit but always little glitches. Unit failed to work just after one year, after hours with customer support they gave me instructions on how to return unit. Cost a bundle to send it back, without router for 3 weeks, received new router worked for 2 weeks then back to customer support. Unit failed again within a year. BUY ANYTHING ELSE!!!!!

Failed right after the warranty was up

Strengths of the product

None for this price range

Weaknesses of the product

Range is less RT-N66U Some devices that work fine with other access points can't connect on 2.5G Unit overheats and dies

Additional Comments

I bought this as an upgrade to an RT-N66U as it was supposed to be faster, have better range and better management tools. It was a fail in all 3 areas. 1) At the same distance the AC3200 is %30 slower than the N66 2) the range is only about 80% of the N66 3) The extra per device tracking is useless

Buy something other than ASUS

Strengths of the product

Worked great for 2 months. Unit started locking up. ASUS support took forever by emails and then several times directly by phone. Never solved problem. Unit then failed to work a couple months later. Called technical support, after 1 1/2 hours on the phone with a phone bill of $60.00, told to send it in. Cost of mail $30. Received email notice that it was repaired however they sent it to someone else's address. Buy some other manufacturer's product. DO NOT BY ASUS.

Weaknesses of the product

Over priced piece of junk with very little competent support. Oh, by the way watch out for the no toll free support lines.

Additional Comments

Out the cost of the Router, plus $90, plus my time. What a waste of my time. Next stop consumer and corporate affairs Canada.

Excellent Router

Strengths of the product

Many useful features over normal routers. Great monitoring and analysis tools. Easy remote management and DDNS. Has been up for 220 days without a single issue!

Weaknesses of the product

........None!

Additional Comments

This is an excellent router for people who have more than just a laptop and cell phone in their house. Even good for multiple subnets in the same place. Asus has good support and warranty based on other items I've sent to them (laptop).

wow!

Strengths of the product

What a beast. It has so many settings to adjust yet it is fairly easy to setup. I had an airport extreme for about 7 years before this and i was about to buy the latest apple router when a friend told me about ASUS. Glad he did. It connected to all my apple computers, ipad and android phones without a hitch. I am going to try to connect the time machine backup soon. I have an external mac formatted drive hooked up to it and there is no problem streaming videos to any device except my win 10 pc.

Weaknesses of the product

too many features! LOL

Additional Comments

This router is worth every penny. i used to have a d-link router as my first router before the airport extreme. I was happy with the simplicity of Apple but this router is easy to use and powerful. I have it in my basement and it gets full signal on the second floor. I needed an airport express to help out my 2nd gen ariport extreme get a usable signal upstairs. just buy it and be happy!

Strengths of the product

I had an Asus RTN16 for quite a few years and I was pretty happy with it. I had the RTN16 placed in my basement along with my shaw cable modem. I was able to get decent signal in the basement and on the main floor, but signal on the top floor was fairly weak. I eventually ran an ethernet cable to the top floor and put in a wifi extender. That setup was always somewhat flaky. -Really easy to setup -Really easy to update -Incredible wifi signal strength and range

Weaknesses of the product

- Its big and takes up a lot of room. I had to move some of my nerd ornaments out of the way :(

Additional Comments

With the RT-AC3200 I no longer need the wifi extender upstairs. What really impressed me is that I was getting a better signal from the AC3200 in the basement than I was from the wifi extender on the top floor. I used wifi analyzer on my android phone to analyze the signals and channels. I almost marked this 4/5 with cost being a weakness, but I feel like I'm getting what I paid for with this product. This $300 router is doing a better job than my $100 router & $100 extender.

Great

It is pretty pricey tho.

Setup

Strengths of the product

Easy to setup, Update the firmware is recommended, and the range... 2.4ghz going across massive buildings so stable... Just goes... If you're looking for a multi streaming wifi capable apple tv / wireless print drop source, check this one out extensively!

Weaknesses of the product

5ghz like any 5ghz, is fast, but wish it would reach the distance.

Additional Comments

Excellent router with a few bugs

Strengths of the product

-I get 5 bars all over my house and 3 bars in my detached garage (both buildings have metal siding, FM radio barely makes it through!) -VPN built into router. Does PPTP and OpenVpn, compatible with iPhone, works very well. -iOS apps to let you wake on LAN, etc -excellent transfer speeds

Weaknesses of the product

-DHCP reservations have two separate screens to set them up that conflict with each other. One screen lets you name devices, the other uses whatever the device reports -Sucks power like a laptop -For price and size I would like to see 10 Lan ports on the back. -Router crashed twice in two months. I have every feature turned on except the one that load balances bands (users reporting problems). Will try turning each feature off.. currently suspecting network statistics.

Additional Comments

Years ago I wound up buying 3 modems before I found one that was stable and even then I had to turn a bunch of features off. Hopefully I can get this one stable too.. 95% crash free doesn't do it if you are trying to VPN in from another city.
