Price is down $9.99 from where it's been at $59.99.

Not the lowest it has been (somewhere around $47.99 I believe) but as my router died, I have been shopping around for an AC1900.

Btw reflashing these are a pain and time consuming. I wasn't receiving any updates from asus and had to reflash it to get security updates. Even with a step by step guide online it took hours to figure everything out.

Yes you need to be a little tech savvy to do this. However it should not take "hours". I'm in the IT field and my first time it took about 30 mins from start to end and that included waiting for the router to reboot, etc

Looks like every 30 days same seller reducing price for re-selling returned units from last deal.
Though my unit looked like new it was not even hard reset and 5ghz frequency didn't work with all options tried. Ended up returning and purchased brand new.

As the router is pretty solid, this thread will also shortly fp.

It was less than $50 NEW.

These are USED (not refurbished, but used--some are getting power supplies that don't work, units that don't work, units covered in scratches, etc.)

It takes a few hours to put it back to Asus firmware from t-mobile if if u never done this before. I know some Unix and DOS, but there's steps that are not up to date... It's worth it though... Solid deal.

Bought two last time, one didn't work. Seller sent me another one no questions asked.

I flashed them to ac68u and could not stop getting network disruptions. This was with wireless backhaul, and the most recent instructions, including using aimesh cfe.

Ended up restoring them and returning.

Signal strength was not as good as my r6700, for sure.
you probably have the same issue I had and some others. We all turned off airtime fairness and it fixed the issue.

This has been $40 plus tax directly from t-mobile before. I think it was back in December and October.

Followed these directions and got mine flashed in ~30min, most of it spent trying to get the router to boot into recovery link [bayareatechpros.com]

(What worked for me: unplug power then plug power in and push power button while holding reset, and keep holding reset down for ~10secs while the router boots)

As a less tech savvy person in regards to routers, what's the reason to flash? I would be getting this for my MIL's apartment so she doesn't need to pay $10/month extra.

you can get multiple and run aimesh. Other than that it's just a plain better router. If you don't need any extra features the stock tmobile firmware is fine but doesn't get updated as quickly as the direct ASUS

I don't think they get updates PERIOD.

If you want updates (why wouldn't you), my suggestion would be to flash this. I ordered another one recently when ebay 20% off coupons were popping around. I will probably replace the POS Verizon Quantum Gateway with new one. (5GH keeps getting bonked out and have to re-connect)

a lot of those verizon routers need to have 2.4 and 5ghz renamed to be separate network names and they work. It's weird but often times it works.
