ASUS RT-AC66U Dual-band 802.11ac 1750 Mbps Wireless Router

https://www.asus.com/nz/Networking/RTAC66U/overview/

Good condition - with original box and all cables etc included.

Has the latest Asuswrt Merlin Firmware loaded (25 Dec 2015).

This is one of the best routers I've ever owned. Had no issues gaming over WiFi - pretty low latency. QoS works like a charm too, so you can have others downloading or streaming videos, and you can still game/surf with no issues.

Plus with the Merlin firmware, you could run your own server, NAS, proxy, adblock etc all from the router itself.

Price: $200 (negotiable)

Location: Wellington

Shipping: $8.50 North Island;  $13.50 South Island; (+$3.50 Rural); Pickups allowed 

----
PS: I'm also selling an ASUS 802.11ac PCI adapter, as well as a Netgear AC1200 802.11ac USB adapter if you're interested (will list these separately).

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

Hi

 

Have one of there and will not work on 100/20 fiber connection, dont think it can handle the speed. It did however work great on 30/10 fiber connection. So now it only get used as an AP.

I'd be incredibly surprised if that was the case?? This unit should be more than capable of handing 100/20.. there may be something wrong with your unit. I've seen quite a few people posting online using this router on their fast fiber connections.

This is incorrect.

Maybe you have a faulty unit? I'm on a Vodafone 100/10 connection and I get it's full speed (around 95 Mbps) - pretty much the same results on wired. It's also possible you may not have a 802.11ac capable receiver.

Here's the speed test result I'm getting right now, from my Dell XPS 13 laptop: 


The connection is being shared between 5 flatmates (15 devices) and as you can see it's still performing pretty well.

Hi

 

No it is correct at least for my unit. On 30/10 fiber it worked flawlessly i couldn't have been happier. after upgrading to the 100/20 fiber connection is when all the problem started. If were test i would get the same speed as you cept(100/20) for about 4-5 hours and it would become completely unresponsive. The only thing that would cure was a physical shutdown and restart. I had merlin firmware installed when the problem happend and ive tried multiple fresh install of the firmware as well as stock firmware. Nothing i could would fix the problem. Now before you say well maybe the power supply is faulty i thought that too i haven't replace the power supply and have been using the unit as a wired and wireless AP for months now and its never crapped out on me. Also have the same amount of devices maybe a few more and having or not having AC wireless should make the unit unresponsive.

 

It was a great unit unitl i had problems with it, if other people are not having the problem with this unit thats great maybe i should re test it, there have been a couple of bugs that were fixed on sparks side since then so maybe.

 

So i built a router out of an old server and now get speeds like this and have been problem free
