ASUS RT-AC5300By: Peter on 12 December 2016By far the best home wireless router I've ever had. Every other router I've bought, I had to install a custom firmware like openwrt to have the type of functionality that this router offers out of the box. I've had this router for just over a week now and it's working perfectly with parental control (time of use), IPv6 (LAN and wireless), guest wireless, dynamic DNS. The router is downstairs in the middle of my house and i didn't think the wireless range would improve much but it did. I got 80% signal level outside at the back now whereas before I only had 30. The web GUI is very good and intuitive but there are some minor bugs where it hangs after making some changes but a refresh gets you going again so no big deal really. My LAN switch is only 100mbps and this handles it fine with its 1gbps capable ports. Wireless speeds seems more responsive than my previous router but I haven't done a speed test on it really. Currently it streams HD videos and audio fine so I'm happy. The only cons is the price. If this was $300aud then ASUS won't be able to make enough. I see why it won Best router of the year. It really is quite impressive.
Awesome AsusBy: Nick Dark on 6 December 2016This had very fast shipping with the best price online. The router was easy to use for adsl2+ just plugged into LAN port of adsl2+ modem/router to the LAN port on the asus using access point mode on first time setup. Great product this is the next level of internet, I was using 7 devices running YouTube at once with no lag, would try 8 but that's all I have. Standard adsl2+ modem would only allow 2 devices on YouTube at once. Can't wait to use it for NBN.
Great deviceBy: Harry on 5 October 2016I got this at a great price. It's easy to use and has very competent QOS features. Build quality is good. If you read the specs you'd know all this already, but you can trust them.
Great ServiceBy: Vijay on 20 May 2016Very competitive price, Received next day. Excellent customer service. Highly recomended.
The KING of all Wi-Fi Network Routers !By: IT Gary on 8 March 2016Do you have areas in your Home or Office with poor Wi-Fi Network reception ? Well then, this is definitely the Router for you. Marginal signal strength means a slower data transfer speed. This Asus Tri-Band Router with it's striking 4 TX transmit + 4 RX receive antennas (Yes !) delivers a powerful, truly omni-directional coverage that penetrates into those hard-2-get-at areas and achieves the absolute strongest signal and fastest Wi-Fi performance possible today. For me that means 5-bar strength all around the house, and decent reception outside as well. Intelligent Tri-Band Smart Connect is a unique feature that automatically assigns connected device to the best available band, appropriate to the data transfer speed they are capable of. Or you can assign devices to a particular band as you prefer. The Multi-User MIMO Transmit and Receive streaming to multiple devices simultaneously is a feature that will be of benefit in the future, as more devices that actually support that feature arrive on the market. The ASUS Router Admin Panel is just fantastic, well laid out, easy to understand and best I have worked with. Setup is simple. And there is also a very good Mobile App for remote admin. Absolutely every feature you could possibly imagine is in there. Adaptive Quality Of Service, Game Boost, Firewall, AiProtection Malware and Malicious Website security, AiCloud 5GB free remote storage, Parental Controls with Time Scheduling, and more, more, more. And I was delighted to find that the firmware is stable; no drop-outs or unexplained re-boots. The ASUS RT-AC5300 Tri-Band Wireless Router is your hamburger with the lot, jam packed full of features, definitely the KING ! I won't look at any other router for many years to come. But it does come at a premium price (-1 Star) and, for some, maybe it is an indulgence.
