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: 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

Overall, this is good product for the price you pay (around $60 to $100).

  • Summary: I purchased this product because it was already flashed with DD-WRT software at a reasonable price even though it is loaded in specs & features. It was easy to install & setup to work with Hide My Ass Free web proxy / VPN. It has been running for two weeks without any glitches except for one time I lost my VPN connection & had t reboot to get it to work.

  • Summary: Overall I like this router. Easy configuration and you can set up two seperate WiFi network on this router : your own where your computers and other personal device can connect to and another you can use for your friends and others guests when they pop in and that second guest network only allow internet access. Your computers and shared data are protected if accessed by the guest network. Each has their own SSID and password.
  • Pros: - DD-WRT available for this router, - Realtime connection monitoring, - Good factory firmware interface, - 2x USB for storage or printer, - Main WiFi network + Guest WiFi network (each having seperate SSID and password)
  • Cons: - Issue tracking internet usage (latest ASUS firmware issue?)

ASUS RT-N16 is a Bargain!

Osito,, TigerDirect.com
2 October 2013
  • Summary: I was happy with my old RT-N12, but was upgrading electronics with NAS box and media server, and I needed the high speed connections. Have been using the RT-N16 for 5 months, and it has been rock solid. Some have complained about range, but I was being leeched upon before I set up the security. The nearest neighbor is over 400 ft. away. I live in the country, but the signal needed to negotiate the walls of two houses and a small grove of trees.

Terrible Router, worse support

Vadim Z., Newegg
27 September 2013
  • Pros: While it worked it was an ok router
  • Cons: So after my WAN port died and i went through a VERY lengthy RMA process with ASUS and received a "new" replacement it also died after only ~1 month. Same issue as before, dead WAN port. Tried everything, flashing to factory settings, using the cd recovery tool, WAN port is dead, which makes this router a paperweight. Dont even want to deal with ASUS again to get it replaced. Seriously pass on this router...there are a lot of people having issues with their WAN port dy...
