Pair it with one of your old Asus routers that support AiMesh and you have a powerful mesh network

In case you're not aware, this router is so powerful, it doesn't actually route packets. It travels into the future using arc reactor technology, downloads data onto its quantum core, travels back, then waits for you to request it and feeds it to you from its local cache.

It also let's you share your printer with your spouse.

I had a pair of ~$300 routers crap out on me just outside the warranty period.

Google wifi for me now. If one of them craps out, you have two more and can replace the dead one for around $100.

​This was very helpful. I was wondering why it was so much.

My spouse will be happy.

Make sure you feed this thing daily. These spiders can be deadly!

Most of the MU-MIMO routers have issues. The Netgear ones seem to slow down or die around the 90 day mark way too frequently.

Thanks, but don't need to! Because I already own one of these. Bought it the first week they came out. Absolutely Love it! No issues and the range is incredible. I have a large house and had to use range extenders before I bought this. Highly recommend it
