Simply Awesome

Wow. This is one super-fast router. Using the AC band with my Nexus 5 shows just how fast AC speeds are. I am able to play Hi-profile HD movies several feet away from the router without the slightest lag.

I earlier owned the RT-N56U, and this one beats it all hands down. It has a dual core processor, and the results really show. I have a 2TB HDD connected to it on the USB3 port and have been using this as my media server. At any given time their are at least 5 clients connected to it, and it...

Regretting. I shouldn't have bought this

I switched from a 3-4 year old Netgear router to this. I bought it after reading some great reviews and recommendations from friends. It's an expensive buy so I wanted to be careful. I was buying this for the next 3-4 years, so it *had* to be worth the Rs 18725 investment.

It isn't. DO NOT BUY THIS. I tried returning it, but Flipkart isn't willing to take it back.

The biggest problem is the reliability of the networks that this router sets up. Speeds keep dropping while I'm browsing, and th...

Best AC router in the market as of Jan 2014 !

Best AC router Available. Superb speed

Fantastic router

After strugging with a D-Link router that used to hang, drop connections, etc. - I did a lot of research and though I thought this modem was expensive, I wanted to pick the best modem money can buy.

It was a close decision between this and Apple Time Capsule, which also had storage, but went with this because of external antennae and slightly better range - especially at home with a lot of walls, corners, etc.

I must say that we've been using this heavily (6 devices connected at most times...

AC68U router - initial impression

Bought this for its advanced features - 3G backup , storage, printer , dual band and large area coverage.
Connected it to a Cisco Linksys ADSL modem connected to an MTNL 8Mbps ADSL WAN and a 3G Airtel Dongle as back up .
The user interface to configure the router is a delight : intuitive and does exactly what you think it should do. Detected the WAN and connected without a hitch.
Dual band 5Mhz and 2.4 Mhz networks work without any problems.
MAC address filtering /QOS - yet to configure ...

Good but there are few niggles

I am reviewing it after using it for about a month. Overall performance was pretty good. Few things that I didn't like are following

-I am not happy with the way it handles 3G data cards. Once 3G data card gets disconnected it takes not only few tries but also overall router becomes unresponsive for few minutes. I am not sure whether it is a generic issue or specific to mine.
-Every setting changes takes about a minute to reflect since for most of the router settings it gets restarted.

Very nice ofcourse

Moved to the latest merlin firmware. Has been serving rock solid ever since, no reboots whatsoever. The interface to setup things is very nice, none the less a bit buggy even with the latest merlin firmware.
I have a 20mbps connection, 1 desktop via cable, 2 laptops, 3 phones, 2 tablets and a chromecast, everyithing on wifi. There are instances of 3 HD video streams being used simultaneously across different devices, sometimes streaming off my desktop using plex and it handles everything wit...
