    ASUS RT-AC5300

    Hi, I just got this router. What is the best firmware (and version) should I use for this? Is there a Merlin firmware for this unit? Also, is there anything I should disable in the settings (due to bugs)? I kind of read somewhere that smart connect isn't working and should be disabled? (not sure)

    Ummm why PM? Your review and opinion would be very useful for other people as well. I'm also interested if the range of the 88u is much better than the n66u. =)

    Broken power button

    Happened to me too. My N66u power switch broke all of a sudden after 1 year of use. I hope they rectify this problem in future models.

    I currently have an Asus N66u and I would like to upgrade my router. I am looking at the AC3200. Does the AC3200 have longer range than the N66u? If so, how much longer? Thanks.

    system error message - Thanks for the reply but I think you skipped the part where I mentioned that the child in question is a "special child" (autistic) hence directing his energy to math or programming is not an option.
