Summary: Well, what can I say? This thing is an absolute monster!! Only just set it up, but here's what I have found so far: It looks lush. Really gorgeous. Plus it's a lot more compact than I expected (and about half the size of the Virgin Super Hub that it's replacing) Speed..... so much speed.
Summary: Using the Asus Merlin (Fork) firmware, great WiFi range and speed. I don't think you really need a router better than this for UK fibre connections unless you transfer data over local network wirelessly, save your money and upgrade again earlier.
Summary: I just love this router. Upgraded from my Netgear; of which brands I have always used. Reliable connection, no drop outs, works great with Virgin Media, bonus with the two USB's (One for TV streaming and tother for back up media) Used to have trouble with wireless signal around our large 4 bed house...

Summary: Having struggled to get signal strength to all rooms in our property, we were recommended to change Router and go for the Asus. Extremely pleased with the results as it has solved connectivity issues in all parts of our house plus due to an improved signal strength, our speeds has increased too!
Dead radio, reboots and doesnt work with Seagate HDD.

Summary: 5ghz radio seems dead as a dodo, signal is horrifically bad and the connection on it used to be really slow and is now unusable, so ive had it disabled since it seems to affect the stability of the whole thing when enabled.
Summary: Great router...so much better than our bt hub. Very fast and reliable. As other reviewers have stated...don't expect to plug and play! This is a great piece of equipment packed with features, you will need to be a little tech savvy and need a laptop or desktop to get into and set it all up.
Summary: I've owned this now for a good amount of time and I can honestly say it's the single best router I've owned. I've gone through so many and they all have flaws - failing to transfer large files, poor wifi coverage, lack of functionality etc.
Summary: Bought this to use with my virgin media superhub (in router mode) as my linksys router wasn't performing well. Had some really bad lag while downloading. With my linksys I was getting about 25mbps. After the simple installation I had superb results right away.
Excellent for the money...features great...ports awkwardly placed

Summary: Great router, quite stable with large downloads, however awkward location of switch and WAN ports mean it can be awkward to place...the ports need to be on the opposite side of the router in my opinion, or on the rear.
Summary: In case anyone is wondering it ok to use this with your BT open reach FTTC modem. I am with plusnet and the router they use is terrible. Got this to replace it and so far so good, it seems a little hot though worried about over heating but ill be back if that happens to change this review.
