  • Pros:
    great interface
  • Pros:
    numerous possibilities to control and configure the network
  • Con:
    has a built-in defect that is not yet addressed properly by Asus
  • Con:
    the WIFI might not work properly without professional set-up
  • Con:
    not at all easy to set-up

- For anyone who considers buying this device do a search on google first, looking for "WLCEVENTD".
- The 5G WIFI was not functional without first disabling Universal Beamforming and Airtime Fairness.
- This "average Joe" needed 26 hours of internet digging to figure out what was wrong with the router.
