    Coverage of this device is a shocker. "ASUS AiRadar intelligently improves wireless connections by using exclusive ASUS RF fine-tuning. This ensures extended coverage, increases dynamic data speed, and enhances stability." Rubbish! I cannot keep a stable connection to my Galaxy Tablet 15 meters away. An exceptionally disappointing purchase. In fact, I think I'll return it.

    dhameer, South Africa. 18 December 2016

    Really good router. Has 2 wifi connections (2.4g and 5g). Range is not anything special but its always online which is the main thing.

    Marcus, South Africa. 30 December 2016

    I'm very happy with this router. It has all the features I'm looking for and has good Wi-Fi strength. I've actually bought two as my first one was fried by lightning so I bought another.

    I would recommend it if you use VDSL. It does work with ADSL however there are far cheaper products that will do the job just fine if you use ADSL and have no intention of upgrading to VDSL and or Fiber.
