Summary: I use two of these now for spreading out a wireless network (1 repeater, 1 access point along with an Asus DSL-N55U), and I am very happy with them - they are fairly painless to set up if you have even a vague idea of what you are doing (always helps!), and pretty much work out of the box, subject to some minor settings tweaks to suit your requirements. They have a good range as they are, but a bigger antenna will improve range considerably (obviously).
Summary: As a router this may be fine. The interface seems good and comprehensive, and it was easy to navigate. However, I bought it for two reasons, 1) the wireless repeater mode and 2) to use as a print server. I never got as far as trying to set 2)!! I found it impossible to get the wireless repeater mode to work with my BT Home Hub no matter how many times I tried and no matter what I did in the set-up. The wireless is fine but the encryption clearly defeats it.
Summary: The router looks good, is easy to setup. The router part works good, didn't have any issues with it. However, the wireless part of the router is total crap. It keeps hanging at least two-three times a day. After it hangs, you need to power-cycle it for it to start working again. Custom firmware doesn't help - it seems the hardware is at fault. Would NOT recommend even to my worst enemy.
Summary: So far Ive been unable to connect this router to the internet.Its Eazy connection routine just does not work and the supplied utility on CD is no better.The on board "Doctor" wizard is less than helpful and unless you know your way around things like manually My old Belkin pre N router was easy to set up and worked almost without human intervention but the Asus is driving me potty,I shall have to get a friend who is more computer literate to sort it for me.
Summary: I found the ASUS RT-N10P router on sale for $25.99 with free shipping, and couldn't resist. Some of the new Linux firmware builds are now supporting this router so I figured to give it a try. Not having gigabit ports is OK, as my house already has switched gigabit ethernet throughout and the wireless N is quite sufficient for the various mobile devices on my 10Mbps internet connection.
Pros: Solid value. With a little know-how, can be enhanced with upgraded firmware and extra features.
Cons: Basic router hardware, wireless / networking / cpu are not the latest or fastest specs.
Summary: For the price, this is quite a nice router - and I'm comparing it to an ASUS RT-N66U... The speed is not bad at all. I did extensive testing with iperf (simultaneous bidirectional test) to see what this is capable of and in close proximity, it manages 40 Mbps. Coverage does extend throughout my small house and the minimum speed was 11 Mbps at -60 dB RSSI. Slow but usable, even for moderate streaming.
Pros: Good speed, Decent coverage, All the features of the more expensive ASUS routers, Large, high-power external antenna, Runs cool, Understated looks, Can be flashed with Tomato (Shibby), Low cost
Cons: Not a premium router (100 MBit ports, no USB, not dual-band, not MIMO)
Summary: It is a 11n router so it started working easily with all the new 11n devices. But had horrible time to make it working with a laptop which is 3 years old. The laptop was not able to detect the presence of this router. I wrote to Asus support for which I got reply only after 1 week and that too was not of any use. Later there was no support from Asus customer care. Lastly I found that this device auto configures itself into 11n device.
