The ASUS RT-N66U dual-band wireless-N900 gigabit router delivers incredible performance and coverage range. With ASUSWRT, quickly setup your network, customize user access, and monitor signal strength. Following the award-winning RT-N56U, the RT-N66U increases Wi-Fi speed for both 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz transmission by 50% up to 900Mbps that makes it ideal for bandwidth demanding tasks such as HD video steaming, multiplayer gaming, USB hard drive file sharing, and USB connected printer sharing.

Whether you’re a tech-savvy enthusiast or a first-time user, the RT-N66U is exceptional easy to use with CD-free, Quick Installation Setup (QIS) that lets you plug-n-surf right out of the box and connect PCs, smartphones, tablets, and other wireless devices quickly. Thanks to its refined interface tools, you get control like never before, letting you monitor signal strength, setup parental settings, and other useful functions in a robust yet intuitive way.

Designed with the latest in networking technology, the RT-N66U delivers exceptionally fast wired and wireless connectivity. What’s more, it comes with a powerful detachable Wi-Fi antenna to further extend wireless range.

Here is what people think about it:

“Yes, this is the most money I’ve ever spent on a router, but I think it’s worth every penny. I consider myself a power user, and definitely appreciate all of the features that ASUS has packaged in this router. But that doesn’t mean you have to be a power user to enjoy the benefits of this router. In fact, I picked up a second one for my parents. They will never use the majority of the features the n66u has to offer, but it was the first time they have ever been able to blanket their home with a usable WiFi signal without having to use a repeater/range extender. Very impressive.

Bottom line: whether you’re a power user and plan to flash custom firmware and use optware, or if you have no idea what that even means – if you need a new router and this is in your price range, just buy it and don’t look back. You won’t be disappointed.”

“Pros
+ Outstanding speed when combined with similarly spec’d adapter
+ Ability to bump up Transmit power makes for much better link speeds across typical house size.
+ Very powerful and flexible set of features/options, with an easy way to configure them through the Dashboard UI.
+ Easy storage attachment and access
+ Can stream HD from attached storage
+ Frequent Firmware updates with lots of user input to the process
+ Supports attached storage greater than 3TB, with GUID vs. MBR partitions.
+ Active user community online

Cons
- Slowish write speeds through network to attached storage. Wish for this to be de-bottlenecked somehow, either in firmware, QoS settings, or through faster connection from router to storage device.

Features I like but have not explored

* VPN, FTP, secure Internet access
* Apps for router
* Multimedia server/sharing
* UPnP integration, e.g., with DirectTV or AV Receiver

Will update as I learn more…

Highly recommended!”

“My last router was a D-link…. the problems I had with the router were insurmountable. It took hours of on the phone tech support and a few scientist from NASA(joke) to get this thing up and running. This would be understandable if I didn’t know electronics…. but I am the guy that sets up routers for my friends. Then the router proved even more problematic as it aged and started disconnecting every hour or two.

After cursing through my teeth for the 4,123 time I decided to stop being so stubborn/cheap and upgrade my router. I wanted to go with Linksys because the router before my D-link worked like a charm. Then I read all of the reviews and decided to take a chance once again on a different router. I can honestly say that I am glad I am.

-Setup:
easy as 1,2,3. I Follow the instructions and the internet was up in 5 minutes for my PC, wifes PC, PS3, XBOX 360 and Roku. This was a nice surprise, you pay money for it and it works they way it is supposed to. no tech support saying “did you try to unplug your router and plug it back in again”, no firmware updates and no hard resetting it over and over again. Anyone that can follow a diagram can set this bad boy up and that says a lot.

-Performance:
I won’t bore you with numbers but this router is a beast. It knocks down walls compared to my old router. All the way on the other side of the house and I still have 5 bars. The connection is solid and I have had zero interpretations, disconnects or slow downs. Browsing the net and online gaming are flawless and I could not be any happier.

All in all it is a 5 out of 5 stars and I would recommend it to anyone.”
