ASUS AX1800 WiFi 6 Router RT-AX55 Reviews
Short Version: ASUS is the best, don’t waste your time & money with others!Long Version:Go back a few years… I had an ASUS, but then it stopped working on me…Went with another “Name Brand” Starts with a ‘N’. and a Hawk. (LOL), to save a few bucks and try something different. 1 &1/2 year later I noticed speeds were suddenly much slower.. I thought it was the overall bandwidth demand with COVID… After doing some Wireshark tests, and other things to determine if it was my darn PC or other issues, I figured it was my router. Even hard-wired was a bit slow, but wifi was horrendous. I almost gave in as was about to increase my Internet speed.I decided this time to try another brand that starts with a ‘T’… and I got the latest AX version. It worked great, BUT then 3 minutes later the router kept losing wifi signal. I tried a few things but determined it was the router and some reviews had similar complaints, which I apparently overlooked. Dilemma.. try again and hope for a good non-defective one or another brand. Then I came across this latest router!Setup was super easy, up and running, and configured in less than 5 minutes, literally! Speeds faster than ever before… I can’t believe what I have been missing all this time! Lesson learned.. WOW! The coverage is great and overall Amazed! The converging 2ghz & 5ghz is great also!Super Happy and impressed! Now I can kick myself for not going back to Asus last time around…UPDATE/TIP:determine the root cause, but after more time than I really wanted to spend troubleshooting this, I determined it was the ‘802.11ax / WiFi 6 mode’. I simply disabled it and issues stopped. I couldn’t determine if it was an initial band issue, range, the smart-connect feature etc… But disabling the 802.11ax / WiFi 6 mode, did not affect speeds for me or ranges, as I continued to have much better speeds than years prior!Also, my iPhone XS Max and laptop had constant wifi drop-out issues, but it didn’t seem our Samsung galaxy tabs had issues, which made it more difficult to determine a common issue.Hope my headaches and experience helps to save other time and the same headaches…
I messed around for days trying to setup a vpn server with not much luck. I ended up getting this device and within minutes had an open vpn server running.
I originally had bought a different AX1800 router, but it would continuously drop all my 2.4GHz connections and I would have to restart once a day. After about a week, I finally had enough and decided to return it and try out this ASUS model. So far it’s been night and day, I’ve had no issues with either the 2.4 or the 5 GHz frequencies. This ASUS AX1800 model is little bit more expensive compared to some of the other competitors, but I highly recommend it since it runs a lot more stable and you probably will not need to do these annoying restarts.
I finally had to replace my 15 year old WRT-54G, not because it didn’t work but because my new Asus ZenBook i7 gen 11 didn’t agree with it. I’m paying for my ISPs lowest speed (100 Mbps) so this was probably overdue. I now get 107 Mbps on the 802.11ax ZenBook, versus nothing. It is also working just fine with an HP 8440p i5 (M520 – gen 1) notebook at 2.4 GHz Windows 10, and a 8440p (M620 i7 gen 1) Linux Mint at 5 Ghz. Additional items connected are 4 ring cameras, a desktop PC and MagicJack via ethernet, my wife’s work computer – HP i5 something old, an alarm system panel, and several Samsung cell phones. I can’t believe it supports them all. A great router!
Amazing router, and the price is unbeatable for what your getting. For example, previous router max download was 25mbps at 60 feet away. After installing this router, i was able to get my full internet download speed of 115mbps, extremely impressed!!!
