Riaan, South Africa. 11 January 2018

I have been using this device for about 2 weeks now and have to say thus far I am very happy with it. Range isn't great but luckily it covers my whole house. The interface is amazing and easy to use and the app on your phone works well with managing the device.

Willem, South Africa. 6 September 2017

I did allot of research before getting this unit for a friend. It was easy to setup, has great loaded software and features, and the WiFi range is very good. A good mid-range option with loads of features.

Karl-Heinz, South Africa. 31 August 2017

Very easy to set up and very stable. Wifi strength on par with our previous router, but the addition of the 5Ghz channel is a real positive.

Deon, South Africa. 21 August 2017

Excellent product

Alan, South Africa. 28 December 2016

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.

Ian Ferreira, South Africa. 10 November 2017

This router lasted a week.

Work laka and was fast delivery

Philip, South Africa. 25 October 2017

Great modem and easy to set up. The wifi range is excellent and the UI is fantastic!

Gavin, South Africa. 21 August 2017

Great router. Has all the functionality I was looking for including parental controls to manage my kids time on their devices and the android app for monitoring usage and managing the device.

Christopher, South Africa. 27 November 2017

This is an excellent modem. Going strong still. Tv is 20m away and through wall the signal is very strong. I stream Netflix Full HD over wifi and even UHD(4K) over youtube

Rea, South Africa. 6 December 2017

Very easy to setup.
Works well

Everhard, South Africa. 4 December 2017

I am extremely happy with this router.

Chris, South Africa. 11 November 2017

Great Wifi router truly amazing.

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.

Hannes, South Africa. 27 October 2017


Duard, South Africa. 5 December 2017

Wi-fi connection is a lot more stable since using this. User friendly interface when setting up.

Elmer, South Africa. 8 August 2017

Best QOS settings seen in a router for gaming!

value for money, South Africa. 5 August 2017

Think this router is worth the money, wifi signal is stable for me.

Trevor, South Africa. 9 January 2018

A good quality router with an abundance of features.
Had to upgrade the firmware and hard reset it before it detected the ADSL line though.

John-Reece, South Africa. 4 December 2017

Works perfectly for what I bought it for.

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.

FJ, South Africa. 21 July 2017

I've been using this router for about a month now, and the performance has been great! The range is pretty substantial and the speed it gets on both 5Ghz & 2,4Ghz bands are really good. If you are buying this for the 750mb transfer speed, remember to check if your devices are compatible with the wireless AC standard.

Rudi, South Africa. 18 May 2017

Very disappointed in this router. Like mentioned in previous ratings the range is really not what was expected, barely better than the free N300 router I received from Telkom. Apart from that, you can not monitor individual usage (Why I got it in the first place and what was shown it should be able to do in the demo software shown on Asus site). No custom software because of processor type. At least it looks pretty good as a door stop.

Roland, South Africa. 12 October 2017

The unit seems to log itself off and in the morning needs rebooting.
Not sure if it the product or the service provider.

Amanda, South Africa. 20 February 2017

Coverage is not as good as I expected, and I am still trying to connect printers wirelessly. However, the setup was painless and I do not regret purchasing this product.

Keldon, South Africa. 28 September 2017

The product is good and reliable so far, the only issue was the setup wizard that didn't save all settings on completion and detected the VDSL line as ADSL so I had to configure all the settings on the manual setup pages afterwards (including VPI/VCI), otherwise great wifi signal, easy interface with lots of features (though would be nice if it gave attenuation/SNR which I couldn't find) and much more reliable than the previous routers at the premises so far (previous routers were dropping the connection now and then).
