    Upgrade a RT-n66u ?

    yes there is a reason in this particular situation for not running it on x86 I could have but that is another story. Have lots of VM servers running on the Dell Server rack. I got the 86u yesterday and testing it out. So far it seems to run cooler than both my 68u. During VPN, FTP speed...

    AC-86U reliabily how long has yours run without a reboot

    Ahh wrong router and wrong place to ask for such a thing. That is probably a difficult statistic to come by but had to try sorry. I suppose maybe asking if they had experienced freezes lockups in-between doing standard updates. I don't think I have ever had to reboot any of my 4 asus...

    Upgrade a RT-n66u ?

    Really appreciate the help. Thanks! I only have experience with the N66u and 68u (my home router) Both EZ. I will run what ever I got at home lab for sure till I get a feel for the new feature set. I like EZ if possible, I mean I can learn any of them but I think I can do a swap using a...

    Upgrade a RT-n66u ?

    Oh its ok I don't need to really know what you do, none of my business. I think you know your way around a circuit board and from you pic with tweezers you can repair and solder well. I go way back to the Atari days and I was always impressed by my friends that were good at repairing and...

    Upgrade a RT-n66u ?

    I think its very cool that you know all of this. Even if it does not help me I appreciate the information. That micro crack theory sounds plausible. I don't have any experience with it on a Router but I did on a Plasma TV board. Had a $3500 60" Plasma that died out of warranty. And...

    Sorry you feel that way. I don't know if you are trolling or what. If someone offers help I expect them to follow up on it, maybe it was sarcasm and you never intended to. If you are open and honest I feel future conversations can be pleasant for you. Best wishes.

    Upgrade a RT-n66u ?

    You will have to forgive me on not knowing how or why that would fail. No idea on how they are made, why some would fail etc.

    I guess I must have missed something. You offered a suggestion. "I run 4 office locations and my hardware choices are different. Just ask." I took your offer then you change to this? Don't sell yourself so short, I did not mean to imply I would value your input, I meant the opposite I took...

    I don't think I even heard of SMB then, was not looking for recommendations but enlighten me to what you use. I appreciate any helpful recommendations. The person I mentioned earlier has recommended many pieces of hardware (servers etc) over the past 10 years and so far he has not led me...

    Now don't be snarky :). You dont' have to tell me that. I talk to him all the time. I don't think he has much input on the 86u in terms of issues in the field. Na I owe him more than he owes me I might get a bigger invoice back.

    No it was not my own decision alone but thanks for assuming that. Did you realize buying 80k hardware every 5 years for medical equipment does not guarantee it will work either? They do not magically work better they have the same issue consumer grade stuff have. People think cause they...

    Yes I agree. That is why I am changing security reasons but not at the cost of reliability its a double edge sword. The people in offices only care if something works not whats going on behind the scenes. Losing thousands of dollars in productivity is something to be avoided. Ideally...

    I am only wanting as good as the previous router I had. Not asking for perfect. Perfect is just ones opinion. Reliable is something that should be expected. The overheating is not something I brought up but is a concern because my current router than has give ZERO issues (its not...

    Worked up? I think there must be a misunderstanding there. I don't care if its 2900 or 2917 was more concerned if the 86u issues had been addressed at all in newer releases. I order a 86u new one. Afterwords I have people telling me "if you want a stable router that is not the router to...
