Bad points:
Just didn't work. When it did appear to work it dropped out constantly. This is a product made for AC wifi, which only the latest products use. The old 2.5k signal as with most other new AC wifi routers is very week. Most people will be better of getting an really good router with just n and no dual band, as there products at home will only be able to use that anyway.

Darren, Ashford Kent.

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
VPN Server is fantastic, very stable, exactly what I bought it for.
Bad points:
Very poor wi-fi performance to begin with, data would slow up to a complete stop rather than lost or dropped connection requiring a re-boot, sometimes twice a day. Seems to have settled down after a couple of weeks.

USB is very sporadic, often not making a drive available to the network till being unplugged and plugged back in. Media server works for an hour before crashing.

Runs surprisingly hot.

Overall dissapointed considering the price, but vital for the VPN access I need right now which it does so far without fault.

Manufacturer's Description

Equip your home with a dual-band Asus DSL-N66U N900 Wireless Router and connect multiple devices to the internet with ease.

Style and power combined in one router
The DSL-N66U offers exceptionally fast bandwidth rates of up to 900 Mbits/s and supports VDSL connections. It operates in both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands, using dual CPUs for top-gear computing power, flexibility and enhanced connection stability.

Both wired and wireless networking facilities have a dedicated CPU for consistent performance improvements. There are also two WAN ports (Ethernet WAN and DSL WAN) which let you use the device as a modem router or a standalone router.

Wired VDSL/ADSL and Wi-Fi networking are separated into two modules, each with dedicated processing power, so the router is able to achieve optimum, uncompromised performance for both connection types.

Faster internet
Enjoy full Gigabit internet performance thanks to the incorporation of powerful hardware NAT acceleration and integrated Gigabit Ethernet, which maintain WAN and LAN throughput of over 900 Mbps. Setup is fast and network management simple with the ASUSWRT interface, and the DSL-N66U N900 Router also uses Asus’s exclusive cloud computing app, AiCloud.

AiCloud works with Asus routers to give you the most complete, accessible, and secure cloud platform. This free app for iOS and Android devices allows you to sync, share, stream, and access all your content easily from anywhere.

It sets up a personal private cloud server at home, connecting flawlessly with the public cloud. It’s easier than ever to share with confidential links which you can send via email, SMS, and more. Asus AiCloud gives you the most intuitive and flexible cloud access from almost any device and location.

More reliable wireless coverage
The Asus Ai Radar facility intelligently strengthens connections to wireless devices, using high-powered amplification to supply stronger signals in any directions, with superior coverage to increase data throughput.

You’ll be able to hop onto the internet within 30 seconds, as smart auto-detection smoothes the way for you from when you first connect the Asus DSL-N66U. This helps it stand out above comparable routers, making getting online so much faster and easier.

A more intuitive control and network setup process

The ASUSWRT graphical interface gives you total control over network management with its highly intuitive layout. This is great news for gamers and HD media consumers, as ASUS QoS bandwidth prioritization improves performance by preventing slowdown – even if you’re running other tasks in the background.

Troubleshoot, control your printer, administer parental controls and run the Download Master with easy one-click settings that make sure your network is better-managed and far more productive.

More ports to choose from
The Asus DSL-N66U N900 Wireless Router offers two WAN ports so you can use it as a standalone router when you’re not running it as an ADSL/VDSL modem router. Choose the mode that meets your requirements, saving time and clutter in any context since you won’t need to purchase separate power-consuming devices.

Whether you’re using it for a simple home setup or a complete wireless network, Ethernet WAN gives you enough flexibility for all your purposes.

Add more devices to your network
Transform the DSL-N66U from ordinary router to a multi-device hub using its two USB 2.0 ports. They’re ideal for connecting external storage, printers, scanners and lots of other USB-enabled devices.

Increase your productivity significantly by sharing resources over your network, doing away with waiting for tasks to complete before moving on. This genuine simultaneous device capability really makes the device a versatile asset to your home.

Private and secure WiFi network via guest network

Able to support up to three wireless networks over the 2.4 GHz band and three over the 5 GHz band, the Asus DSL-N66U N900 Router can protect your computers from unauthorised access, hacking and viruses. Parental control helps you control your children’s computer access times.

The device is also VPN server-enabled, so you can quickly establish a VPN server wherever you might be. This features MPPE encryption for secure and confidential data transfers.

There’s also support provided for a huge data pipeline of up to 300,000 data sessions, which is approximately 20 times the networking capacity of standard routers and maintains brilliantly smooth performance.

Choose the dual-band Asus DSL-N66U N900 Wireless Router and experience star-quality home broadband.
