Review ASUS AC66R wireless routerI picked up a refurbished ASUS ACC66R wireless router in June 2013 for 119.99 from newegg. The only difference between the AC66R and AC66U is that the R version is sold in brick and mortar retail stores and the U version is sold thru online channels.
It had been running great until I moved it in Feb 2014 and then it did not like to stream 5GHz thru 3 walls (2 outside ones). However, upgrading the firmware to the latest and upping the 5Ghz transmit power to 110 mW stabilized the connection.
- Simultaneous Dual Band (2.4 and 5GHz)
- Gigabit LAN
- Supports draft AC
- Has guest networks that are isolated from your network
- 2.4GHz range is much better than my old E2000
- Stable, has needed very little rebooting (I think twice in 6 months)
- Sleek looking
- 3 adjustable external antennae (recommend 45, 90, 45 degree oreintation)
- Supports IPv6
- Not final AC
- Have not tested AC streaming as I don't have any clients
