Beware of the hype

I bought this router after going through endless reviews through multiple tech sites. The claims about high performance are all correct. I get a very high throughput on local network while transferring content through my NAS and attached portable HDD.

But the critical part that was not mentioned in any review was about the significant issue in connecting to the internet. This router regularly drops WAN IP (internet connection) in either of PPPoE or Automatic IP mode.

If you google the error,
"You've set the wrong dynamic or static IP address for RT-N56U"
, you would get tons and tons of comments/issues from users with barely any concrete resolutions.

I've tried custom firmware and am using the latest firmware from Asus (1.0.1.8j) but nothing has helped. Now the only option is going to Asus service center in the city which operates Monday to Friday 10am to 5pm. I'll have to now take an off from office to take care of this stupid router. (Btw, Asus only have pickup service for their motherboards for servicing)

If this router works for you, then this router is perfect, but if you are getting the same error, then you can only enjoy devices on your local network and forget about using the internet!

Update:
One reviewer suggested that I was using an old firmware which was not the case. As of date (10-Sep-2012) of writing the old review (which is copy pasted above as I was not able to find option of updating an old reivew), 1.0.1.8j was the latest version at that point of time. I've tried the latest firmware 3.0.0.4.318 which came out on 18th Dec 2012 and I have the same issues. Lots of drops. Had 4 connections drops today.

I am going with the same verdict. If this works for you, then it is still one of the best one around. If it does not, then try custom firmwares. I've got better lesser drops with the custom ones, but the issue is not completely eradicated.

Great reviews but was a nightmare

Had quite an interesting time with this router...it performed perfectly fine for the first 30 days and then the trouble began...my internet would suddenly get disconnected and when i tried to access the router's homepage i would get a message saying "the ip address of the router has changed, blah blah blah..." and the only way to get it to work again was to pull out the routers power plug and plug it back again...

after a few days of doing this the router went dead, i could see just one light on the router when there should have been 4 and nothing made it work...i took it to the...

after a few days of doing this the router went dead, i could see just one light on the router when there should have been 4 and nothing made it work...i took it to the service center "rashi periperhals" which are probably the worst service centre in India, they updated the firmware and gave it back to me saying the issue was fixed, this after i had told them the firmware was upgraded by myself...anyway so it went dead again after a day so took it to Rashi again and asked them to replace the router to which they refused...

escalated this to ASUS support in Mumbai i think and they finally agreed to replace the router...but Rashi still wasn't satisfied with the substandard support and wanted to prove that they are the indeed the worst so they actually asked me to get the original router's box(cardboard) along with the manual etc...who in the right mind would keep the original cardboard box?? i threw it the moment i opened it....
since i did not have the original packaging i was provided the replacement item without the box and other accessories...SO now i have the replacement item and in order for it to work i reboot it once everyday ...it is a hassle but at least it is working...

in terms of performance it is allright i get the signal from the 2.4 Ghz past 2 solid walls and a bandwidth of 300 mbps from the 5 Ghz signal.

Greatest Router available in the Market.

Well, I buy a lot from Flipkart but this one I didn't. But seeing some of the top reviews which are negative made me write this review.

I'm a serious technology enthusiast and I've been using routers for more than 14 years now. I've used a variety of routers over the years and this one is amazing.

I've been using this router for about 3 years 2 months now and its the best.

Let me first tell you about my setup at home - I've four routers. The main router is Asus RT-N56U connected to my internet modem works in both 2.4 and 5G. Cisco E2000 (installed dd-wrt) setup in a Repeater Bridge mo...

I'm a serious technology enthusiast and I've been using routers for more than 14 years now. I've used a variety of routers over the years and this one is amazing.

I've been using this router for about 3 years 2 months now and its the best.

Let me first tell you about my setup at home - I've four routers. The main router is Asus RT-N56U connected to my internet modem works in both 2.4 and 5G. Cisco E2000 (installed dd-wrt) setup in a Repeater Bridge mode connected to my XBOX, Smart TV and TataSKy. An old famous router Linksys WRT45G setup as AP in the 2nd floor (again in Repeater Bridge mode) and finally Netgear that connects to my home security system that constantly records and uploads security pictures to my Cloud device. Apart from this, I've two desktops connected over LAN, 1 laptop, 4 phones and 1 iPad over wireless.

Even when I take out the repeaters.. the signal strength of 2.4G is amazing! the file transfer rate varied from 12MB/s(full strength) to 3.5-4MB/s( for 1 bar signal strength).

For 5GHz wireless network delivered better speed only in close range. Files transferred with 16MB/s. However, the signal strength decreased a lot in other rooms - in some places I used to get only 1-2MB/s. However, the router is in the same room as my other 5Ghz devices.

Over the years, I had an issue with ASUS RT-N56U only 2 times.
1. When I upgraded to a faulty firmware.
Solution: I downgraded to the stable one and waiting for ASUS to fix their Media Server issues.
2. When my ISP had an issue with my IP address
One of the user complained that he always gets an error "You've set the wrong dynamic or static IP address for RT-N56U" - I too received this error and it was an issue with ISP. There was an issue only once and updating all the devices with Static IP had resolved this permanently.

The best firmware version I would say is 3.0.0.4.374.130 - it has worked flawlessly for me.

The AiCloud feature is simply superb, you can just plug-in USB harddive and can access from any internet based phone or computer.

Media Server with DLNA, access your media center over 5Ghz! from any device with a DLNA client.

Its bad luck for those if this router is not functioning as marketed... but I'm here to say, it works great as advertized for me.

Wish others all the best... my suggestion... try different firmwares... one works great.. Keep it!

A very good router

This transmits two simultaneous wifi SSID one on 2.4Ghz and one on 5Ghz. Hooked up my PS3 using an Ethernet cable. Streamed wirelessly blue ray movie rip (25GB mkv file) without any problems and simultaneously continued using the Internet with no loss of speed.
Tried USB with 1.5TB HDD formatted to NTFS. Worked fine. Was able to FTP, windows share and also stream media from this HDD.
Four stars because my photon+ did not work, even with custom ROMS.

Excellent Product

After long, meticulous study of the intermediate end of routers available in India, I zeroed in onto this model.
Very easy to set up the connection to the internet.
Can use a pen drive directly to download from ftp,p2p without the need of computer being on.
Can connect my tablet,laptop,pc and even the TV to internet using this router.

One seemingly con is the signal weakens very drastically after 2 walls while using the tablet.Maybe that has something to do with the tablet because the TV and laptop can stream in expected rate using the router.

Buying from flipkart was a really pleasant experience. Prompt calls and confirmations of order.
The item even reached my place 2 days before the scheduled date.

I am using this router for the last 4 months and its going amazing.

Nice Product .. Not for novice users

Really good product
Dual band is not needed for regular home use. Single bad is enough.
5GHz - has less range and more strength (connection speed like 120 Mbps/72Mbps)
2.4 Ghz- More Range and less strength. But most devices (like mobiles/Ipods/Ipads ) use this range only. Hence might be overloade...
