Excellent Starter Router

by Sajoy star_border star star star star

I bought this because the Wi-Fi at my home was getting really crowded with a lot of devices and possible interference with neighbour's Wi-Fi. Recently, I started adding a lot of home automation Wi-Fi connected devices to my Virgin Media hub and I believe this was leading it to cause random connection drops. So, I had to get a proper router. This router is not the top of the line from ASUS, but it fits my use case pretty well. One of my selection criterion was that the router must be able to run custom firmware, and this could run ASUS-MerlinWRT firmware. Merlin WRT firmware adds a ton of additional capabilities to your router - like network wide ad blockers, VPNs, etc. They even have games that you can deploy on these routers. So I wanted a router that would be highly customizable. Now, you may be worried that flashing a custom firmware is difficult or that it would void warranty; you don't have to worry. Flashing Merlin firmware is just like flashing ASUS firmware - very easy, and ASUS fully supports it. They do not take away your warranty for flashing this firmware. So, it's all good. And my review below is based on MerlinWRT firmware on this router. Anyway, I setup this router (using MerlinWRT) and so far - everything looks real good. No more connection dropouts on Wi-Fi and the Internet connection appears to be super stable. Speed tests done on the router are showing that I am getting the speeds as Virgin mentioned. Pings are below 10ms. So it's all good on the WAN area, Coming to the LAN capabilities, it is pretty powerful there too. Because this is a Wi-Fi 6 router, it gives good speeds, and you can also create a load of guest networks on this. You can create at least 6 different guest networks with Merlin firmware - and individually provide access to your LAN. You can redirect your DNS queries to variety of external IP addresses or your own internal server. You can configure OpenVPN clients or setup VPN server, so that your mobile devices can connect to your home router and tunnel traffic through there - giving you a excellent, additional layer of security - even when you are on the move. You can even selectively route traffic via VPN. This has got two USB ports (one 2.0 and one 3.0), so you can share USB drives or printers throughout your local network. The only bad thing I would say is regarding the lack of more RJ45 ethernet ports on the router. There are only 4 LAN ports (and one WAN port for internet connectivity). This is why I took off one star from my review.
