The Asus RT-N66W N900 is a great router - I have been using this exact router for about 2 years and it works fantastic. Just make sure you keep the firmware updated. I recently I switched to the Merlin custom firmware without any problems, I highly recommend this router. Thanks TDMVP for sharing.

Did the Merlin firmware increase your routers range?

Are the capacitors in Asus routers better these days? I had a pair of Asus routers go flakey due to bad caps just a year apart.

I also have 3 of these routers for years and the only time they get reset is for the firmware upgrades. Highly stable and good range/speed. Highly recommended, especially at this price.

Just want to add that this is the best router I have ever owned. Don't even hesitate, over 3 years I haven't had a single problem with it.

Picked up the Asus RT-N66W. After having constant issues with my cheap netgear router that i've been using for a few years, decided to switch from netgear. Everyone seems to say this is pretty good and at 50 dollars that doesn't seem like such a risk.

My first dual band router setup. I've updated the firmware to 3.0.0.4.378_9459. Set up the wireless MAC filter list, I didn't realize I had to add some devices to both the 2.4 & 5 Ghz MAC filter list. You recommend any sites for tips, tweaks, mods, etc?
TIA
