How does this compare to the ASUS RT-AC66U available for $20 more?

The Asus has external antenna and it so it should give you further 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz range. But this one should be plenty if you manage to place it in the center of the house.

If you need range, get the asus. If you don't this might be a better deal. I also think the Linksys has USB 3.0 compared to the Asus. But then again it's really questionable if that USB 3.0 actually makes a difference.

$79 for this one.. any advantage/ disadvantage over Linksys? I also have repeaters of TP-Link. Would it be better to take TP-Link or does it not matter?

You mean Cisco for this particular router. It came out before they were acquired by Belkin.

FYI, mine was intermittently restarting.. I'm on the latest (stock linksys) firmware as of now which is 1.1.40.153731 aka Ver.1.1.40 (build 153731). I called in to Linksys support (1-800-326-7114) and they told me to change the channel settings in the Wireless section.

2.4 Ghz network
Channel width: Auto
Channel: 6 - 2.437 GHz


5 Ghz network
Channel width: 80 Mhz
Channel: 161 - 5.805 Ghz


I'm going to continue to test over the next few days to see if it'll still randomly restart. Perhaps my network setup is strange - I have the SSID for the 2.4Ghz network and the 5Ghz set to 2 different names, and I set all of my wireless devices to use only the 5Ghz network.

I hope I've helped..

Well, that didn't take long - I experienced another reboot and called back - they told me to change to these wireless settings instead:

2.4 Ghz network
Security mode: WPA2 Personal
Channel width: 20 MHz Only
Channel: 11 - 2.462Ghz


5 Ghz network
Security mode: WPA2 Personal
Channel width: 40 Mhz
Channel: 165 - 5.825 Ghz

......hopefully things go well....

Used this deal and bought EA6700...
The router fails to do ONE basic thing right... When you go thru the linksyssmartwifi setup and expect to start connecting your devices to it, the router fails to stay connected to the network more than 5 mins. (I guess I am facing the same problem as described by DeepBlade)

Was really frustrated after trying to stay connected... and after about 5 or 6 hours, I gave up and went back to my 3 year old Belkin..!!

Am going to try the settings above tonight... hope that works... or I flushed $100 for Thanksgiving.

Well, I've been using my router now also for about a couple of weeks and can't say it's been trouble free.

First of all, the UI in the new router is worlds ahead of what I remember having previously - which is why I've always switched to TomatoUSB/DD-WRT.

The speed is INSANELY fast... it really flies with AC devices, but even my N-gear connects/runs much faster compared to the E3000.

On the negative side of things, I do get occasional wifi disconnects which are annoying as hell. Initially it was constant... for some reason Linksys named the 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz bands the same name and changing it to different names helped.

Anyway, I changed a few of my settings as recommended above (slightly different, but I'll play with it) and see what happens. One thing I miss with TomatoUSB is it told me how congested each channel is.

Definitely a keeper if I get the disconnect issue fixed. Linksys really needs to beef up their firmware.

Thanks a ton again, DeepBlade..!
I tried the settings you posted... and ONLY those seem to help keep the router up and running constantly.
While keeping these settings safe, I`m going to have to play around with the Channel widths and frequencies... because, Chromecast and my Nexus don`t seem to catch the 5.825Ghz signal.. (the 5GHz network wont even show up in WiFi network searches..)

Hey guys, my units is totally busted. Nothing I tried previously helped the random reboot issue. I called Linksys several times and I'm going through an RMA process now to have it replaced. Hopefully the replacement unit is not flawed in any way...

On the bright side though, when it doesn't randomly reboot, I could hold onto a wifi signal with my MacBook from a ridiculously far distance on the 5Ghz band =D It must have been like.. 130 feet, and it still showed full bars. I don't think the speed was very great, but I could still browse websites.

Thinking about this purchase though, I think an Apple Airport Extreme would have been more suitable for me though, since I have a hard drive that's HFS+ formatted and would like to turn that hard drive into a NAS instead of relying on a machine that's always running.

I experienced the same thing - my Galaxy nexus couldn't see the 5Ghz SSID at that point.
