I've been using my ASUS AC68U since 2014 without issue. All other ASUS routers I've helped hooked up have all been solid.

Probably shouldn't hold any long term grudges against a brand because of a bad experience. Every product is capable of defect from any brand. Brand loyalty is bad, just like the opposite of brand loyalty is..

ASUS is a highly trusted router brand.

You're correct. I did the T-Mobile flash and while I'm very technically inclined, it still cost more than an hour of my time and will cost a newbie maybe 2 or 3. There's a lot of value in a readymade foolproof solution.

For me though it was fun hacking it, but if going through that process sounds frustrating, DONT.

I will also say that these asus routers are great.

This has the exact same hardware as the Tmo! The link posted above talks about it. Stock firmware limits it to 1750, but simply reflash to Merlin 68U firmware and it's a 1900 router.

Thanks! I have been considering this router. Amazon and walmart.com have it for $80 and they charge tax (and Newegg doesn't for me) so that makes this deal almost $20 cheaper. From what I have found this RT-AC66U B1 model has the exact same hardware as the notably more expensive RT-AC68U (with the performance differences limited in the firmware). I am leaning towards this router for it's AiProtection Pro features that also include good parental controls.

Probably as many IPs as your subnet configuration is designed to handle. In a typical home setup, that's 254 (192.168.1.2 - 192.168.1.255). However, 5ghz can only handle so much bandwidth, so your subnet and the router's dual core CPUs isn't going to be the bottleneck here: it's the limitations of 5GHz wireless. You'll notice a slowdown of speed well before you get to that many clients, unless all your clients are low bandwidth devices, like credit card processing machines at a restaurant or something like that. If you change your subnet settings, you can accommodate more than 254.

Would never buy ASUS again after having to replace one after 3 years. I've never had one of these fail on me until trying the predecessor model for this, so recommend against this.

Last I looked the Tmo ones were $70 for new and $50 for refurbs (with no warranty) and they take almost 40 steps to get them to run regular ASUS firmware. To me this deal is FAR better!

If you mean the RT-N66U model, I have a white version (with same internals) that has been solid for about 3 years.

This deal is for the RT-AC66U B1 (look closely on Newegg and you'll see the real model # listed). Newegg calls the RT-AC68U RT-AC1900 too. As I said before, from what I found both units have the same hardware inside.

I think its $60 new on amazon, unless I'm not seeing something. Personally, I'd rather jump through 40 steps if it means better hardware/performance.

But I respect a different option. $70. Good to go out of the box has its appeal too. To each their own.

I was just curious if one was in fact better than the other.
