Summary: After having and getting sick of BT Homehubs (I have BT infinity ) I upgraded to this. Wish I had done it sooner. The Homehub regularly dropped connections and I got a replacement. That also dropped connections until I downgraded the security key setting. Wireless was slow though, with my IPad I got around 6mbps sitting fairly close. This is dual band. The standard 2.4ghz and 5ghz.
Summary: Wow! This was the 3rd wifi router I've brought in the past year. I had even considered splashing serious cash on the latest technology from Apple - but the reviews for this were excellent. This is seriously fast - and it looks pretty smart too. I'm running an Apple TV - streaming iPlayer from my iPad to the router and then to the Apple TV, while using two other ipads and a laptop - all over WIFI and it's fast as lightning.
Summary: It reaches parts my old router didn't, the router supplied by my internet provider was not powerful enough to reach all parts of my modest semi-detached home, breeze block walls were the main problem, I bought this on recommendation from my son who has one and the fact it also had very good reviews on the Amazon site.

Summary: I have been using a Virgin Media 'Superhub' and when i say super hub it is just because Virgin media called it that, and it is anything but. I had been having problems with laptops/tablets loosing connection and then re-connecting, this was quite annoying, after looking at the superhub there seemed to be no problems, i was also getting quite slow connection to the internet even though i should have 30Mb/s.
Summary: I have a Virgin Media Superhub and was previously using a D-Link DIR 615. When the Superhub was installed the Virgin engineer told me to run it in "modem mode" and keep the D-Link Router as the Superhub is terrible apparently. Unfortunately when my connection upgraded to 120mb I was capped at 100mb due to the speed of the ports on the D-Link.
EDIT: Great router, Just be careful if you have Cable/Virgin Media

Summary: EDIT: see new contents on the bottom. I brought this router to replace the my recently Faulty, D-Link DIR615, ( not a great router but it worked), and as i have friends who have the ASUS RT-N56U i thought "why not what could go wrong? "it turns out everything. after 3 days off attempting to set it up, it fails to do anything except reboot,ive tried EVERYTHING possible to get it working, and having set up multiple routers in the past, it shouldn't be this hard to get a...

Summary: After initial difficulty caused by this being on sub-net 192.168.1.1 which means it is totally inaccessible from my existing 192.168.0.xxx devices and computers. After some googling, I finally resorted to putting a spare network card into a spare PC and setting it to 192.168.1 allowing me to change the address to the 192.168.0 subnet. This is a stupid problem with many devices with fixed initial IP address on the 'wrong' subnet (that is not specially of ASUS's making).
