Amazing router

Mr. M. Tassoumt "Music fan", Amazon
10 May 2011
  • Summary: Probably the best consumer router one can find. There is no clear specs on the product description (nor on the product package) but this router carries 128Mo of ram, and a very fast processor (over 500Mhz Broadcom). while most routers have only 8 or sometimes 16Mo of ram. That's where changing the firmware to a proper Linux based system gets interesting. I installed the tomato firmware (with usb mod) and it rocks.

A well rounded router that will do almost everything you need.

  • Excerpt: "...in terms of protection although Asus is still working on pushing new versions for this newly released router. It will protect you against DOS attacks but anything more will just pass right though it. The router comes with 2 built in USB 2.0 ports which allows the connection of Portable HDDs, Printers or Memory Units. With the original firmware you don't get a lot of options so you need to go to their site and update as soon as you install the router. ...
  • Pros: Custom firmware, fast ethernet and wireless
  • Cons: Original firmware lacks a lot of features, poort support from ASUS

  • Summary: I bought this router less than 6 months ago and suddenly it stopped working. I called customer support and spent 1.5 hours on the phone trouble shooting! Most of this time was spent doing the same steps time and time again.... After 1.5 hours they finally decide they will need to replace my router. They couldn't have decided that sooner? (He told me there was clearly a problem 5 minutes into the phone call.

Avoid this if you want a router to work longer than 1-2 years

Sean B., Newegg

  • Pros: It works well.. at first. Accepts tomato firmware. Average strength radio.
  • Cons: I've sold around 100 of these over the last year or so and about 15 have gone bad due to cheap caps. It's always the same thing, always the same cap. They use cheap 2000 hour caps on these. Why is a mystery, since they use higher quality ones on their motherboards. I'm guessing they just needed a place to use the cheap low quality capacitors.

Excellent rounter for custom firmware.

  • Summary: I love to use this router with customized firmware. It serves well as a media server and a server for printers and network accessed storage. Only wish is that it supported USB 3.0 for faster transfer to the USB storage devices.

Perfect home router

Johnny Hammer, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this router to replace my ageing router in my house. After I did I noticed that streaming HD video wasn't as choppy as it was before, and the range was further than my old one. I never have to reboot this thing and running P2P doesn't bog it down. If you are a heavy internet user, this is the way to go.

  • Summary: So I got this router few years ago (about 3 1/2 years) to install DD-WRT or Tomato on it. I tried both firmwares and decided to stick with Tomato. I never ran on the stock Asus firmware, so I can't comment on it. However, I will not comment on how good the open source firmwares are, but you should give them a go. The specs of this router are very good. With 128MB of RAM, 500MHZ of CPU and a 32MB Flash, you can have a lot of stuff running on this firmware.
  • Pros: Tomato/DD-WRT support, Very good specs (500MHZ, 128MB RAM, 32MB Flash), All Gigabit
  • Cons: Power supply is cheap
