Perfect purchase for me, exactly what I was looking for!

After long hesitation, I decided not to save money and take a router in terms of functionality with a reserve "for the future" - I bought B2 revisions (firmware 380_4208) of 2022. Even as a layman I can say - sit and poke an hour or two of the web interface and you will understand how many different functions you have been provided to optimize your work: 1) Regarding the reviews that he "gets very hot." Naturally - after all, the basic configuration of the router implies covering the needs of

  • - versatility and speed, timely software ates - 5GHz support - high-quality and understandable web-interface - a very wide range of settings for optimal router performance - good build quality - smartphone control app
  • - a considerable price compared to competitors, close to the ceiling of the middle segment (by throwing a little on it would be possible to immediately take the AC68U - between which I actually chose .) - at the moment of my requirements - did not reveal any shortcomings

The best thing for the money, I'm glad I chose this option.

Take it boldly. Install Hugo's firmware on it, increase the transmitter power from 50% (default) to 100%. Play around with the settings a bit. And you will be happy. After the firmware, a large number of open channels. You need to play around a little with cooling and you get a powerful router with a very large coverage area. In my suburban area, a stable signal catches 80 m from the router through 3 walls. + I put 2 antennas on it with a coefficient of 12 and a directional antenna with a gain…

I expected more from buying, but not the worst option.

The entire potential of the router is given to the 5 GHz network to the detriment of 2.4. The wifi transmitter has only one "Eco" setting (visible in the ASUS router app). A tricky interface in which there are "traps" from which there is no way out except YES or NO, after which there is EXECUTION, although you have not changed anything. The general impression is that the router is somehow raw, unfinished.

  • 5 GHz WiFi is great, the speed in this mode is commendable.
  • It gets very hot, the network adapter beeps, the network speed is low 2.4 GHz, there is no power control for wifi transmitters.

I can't believe I paid for it, the quality is disgusting.

About watching YouTube, the Internet disappears every 10 minutes. Overheating is excluded, since the router hangs on the wall and there is no dust inside. I have to use this router, because I bought it for 5600 at a discount, and the toad is strangling to buy another one. Initially, the idea of ​​​​buying such an expensive router was the desire to have a strong productive device for hd-tv and all sorts of torrents. As a result - a disgusting device for a lot of money.

  • Easy settings, beautiful interface, beautiful appearance
  • Wi-fi keeps dropping out. On the laptop, it says that there is a wi-fi connection, but without access to the Internet. The same is true for mobile devices. And this does not depend on the Internet provider in any way, since I have been using this router since 2022, and have changed my place of residence 3 times already.

A useless product, it's not worth the money.

My firmware is On the return - there are no problems, the speed is really not cut. That's all we've been able to test so far. Until I realized whether to rejoice in the purchase. =((( Different pros: Quality of workmanship, design, reliability in use, it is not heated. Has cons: Cuts speed! I don’t know why they write here that the modem does not cut speed. In my speedtest, out of 15 measurements, the speed did not rise above 21 Mb / s for reception. When I connect directly…

Well done, but I won't buy any more.

In general, I like the model, I have been eyeing it for about a year. With the power of the transmitter, you can find a solution, who are interested in looking on the forums. Its pros: 2 bands, stylish body, good speed, friendly interface, controllable via mobile apps. Its cons: The artificially cut transmitter power for 2022, in the kitchen through 2 reinforced concrete walls, is already 1-2 divisions and the IPhone is constantly trying to jump over to cellular Internet, but generally stable.

A high-quality product, the price corresponds to the quality.

Great device, I have 3 of these. Internet just flies WiFi fast and good signal. It punches better and farther than others. User-friendly setup interface everything is beautiful and logical. Outwardly, it looks simply gorgeous. You can not hide in the closet

My impression of the purchase is good, buy it.

In principle, not a bad router, I would even say excellent, but its overheating with WI-FI turned off is just annoying. The designers could not come up with a decent cooling system for such an expensive and powerful device. Has some pros: Excellent design; High performance; Pair of USB ports; Convenient and simple web interface for managing the router. Its cons: High heating during operation up to turning off WI-FI (it is treated by turning off the power for five minutes), the power supply…

The quality exceeds all expectations, I recommend to buy.

An excellent solution for a modern home network or small office. I successfully use both DHCP and NAT. I keep file storage on a separate server. I don't notice any drop in speed. Gives everything that the provider is capable of. Has some pros: Excellent performance, very good GUI, everything worked right out of the box and without dancing with a tambourine (Beeline Internet, former Corbina). Cons below: Not revealed yet. The price is a little high, but this is normal for new models.

Great quality, happy with it one hundred percent!

Its pros: The speed and range are very good. The interface is simple even for a beginner. I connected a 3 terabyte hard drive to it and it works well. Just need to format it in FAT32, no other way. Different cons: The price is quite high especially for 2022. It's a shame that this top model does not have usb 3.0.

Not the best quality, but overall not bad.

I was looking for a router to punch through the whole apartment. But the old one didn't work. In this regard, I am very pleased with the new router, it catches the maximum Wi-Fi everywhere. Among the shortcomings is that the router sometimes freezes. You have to turn it off and on. After this procedure, everything works fine.

Unsuccessful purchase, I am disappointed.

Out of the box, the 5MHz wi-fi range did not work - I tried all the alternative firmware - nothing helped - apparently crooked iron. The power supply burned out. Price / quality does not correspond to overpriced by 2 times. Some pros: 1. Stylish appearance. 2. Reliable operation of ethernet connections. 3. Powerful WiFi transmitter With its cons: 1. Glitchy native software and hardware - the 5MHz range for wi-fi did not work in the router out of the box. 2. Strong heating - bad cooling…

Excellent product, the best quality.

I chose DD-WRT from the firmware, after flashing the router changed, a lot of functions were added. I have been using it for 3 years now, I don’t want to buy it at all, even after so many years it remains one of the top routers. Different pros: + 5GHz + Doesn't cut speed at all + 2 USB + Variety of firmware + Works as a heater on cold evenings Got cons: - 5 GHz does not hit very far, the signal drops noticeably through 2 walls, but that's enough for me. - The stock firmware is just…

Has pros: Excellent signal DD-WRT support Built-in torrent whistles free dyndns Easy to set up WOL There is 5G wifi Nice admin panel Got cons: Not cheap at all It transmits so powerfully that it clogs the Bluetooth channel for the mouse and keyboard. I manually set the transmission channel number, it seems to have passed.

All is well, liked the product, didn't buy it for nothing.

2 years it serves regularly, with the exception of the 5GHz network, it is treated by a long shutdown of the router. The coverage area is impressive, exactly 70 meters. It does not squeak, does not whistle, ping does not jump to it from loads. 10 devices are connected to it stably.

By the way, I bought the Netgear A6200 whistle for the new 8022022ac standard in the same online store from the Germans. Who decides to purchase, you can use the discount code 5 EURO - FWLJZLF enter when placing an order at the bottom by selecting "Activate coupon / promotion code". Different pros: I bought myself an ASUS RT-AC66U in an online store in Germany. The build quality is at the level (it seems they were made for Europe), everything is Russified, it finds the latest firmware itself…

Not a bad product, quite normal quality.

found a good description of the router here. . Php/ru/component/content/article/126-asus-rt-ac66u.Html But they seem to have somehow found a hangup of the web interface after such acomnnection of a USB disk. Some pros: Didn't manage to understand. About which, of course, a little lower. I think that a lot of good things have already been said, especially if possible, keep the wireless bridge at high speed. Solution for those who needs to hide backups across the road. :-). I just needed a…

I really like the product, it fully meets my expectations.

I highly recommend, + the new Wi-Fi standard for the future 8022022ac, bourgeois devices have already made. At this speed, you can watch HD quality over the air. A bunch of functions are associated with USB, you can use them for sharing a printer and MFP, channel reservation via cellular modems, network storage functions with access to files via SMB, FTP and DLNA protocols.

  • Very happy with this router. Stylish appearance. Immediately installed the firmware from Merlin, turned it on and has been working for 2 weeks without problems. The speed does not cut, it does not heat up, everythingcomnnects via Wi-Fi and keeps a decent speed throughout the 3-room apartment, moreover, acomnvenient feature is enabling / disabling Wi-Fi on a schedule, and ofcomurse there are up to 3 guestnetworks. The interface is in 2022 right out of the box, the instruction is also in 2022, although I ordered it in Germany, through the store Who needs it - a 5 Euro discountcomupon - FWLJZLF
  • The price would be a little cheaper (although in 2022 it would cost me 1.5 - 2 thousand more).
