The Asus RT-AC66U supports the latest
802.11ac Wi-Fi standard. Experts say this simultaneous dual-band router offers
great performance, and boasts advanced features like virtual private network (VPN)
capabilities that make it a great choice for homes and small businesses.
Ease of use
Surprisingly simple setup. The Asus RT-AC66U builds on the very popular RT-N66U
by adding support for the latest 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard. The router
ships with a CD with installation guide that PCMag.com's Samara Lynn says makes
setup "virtually pain-free." CNET editor Dong Ngo calls it "not
the easiest router to set up," but the included guide makes it "very
easy for home users." Lynn says the interface is "well designed,"
but notes some sluggishness at times. Pros
Excellent range, speed, Advanced features, Granular control over networkCons
Sluggish interface, Could be more reliable, Sometimes runs hot
