5Killer router for heavy usage. Handles heavy traffic with ease while providing commercial level control of your home network.
By KritikSS
Purchased the RT-ACRH13 to replace a TP-Link N router that was constantly dropping wifi requiring a reboot. In the few weeks I've had it operating it's needed absolutely zero attention from me, minus setup. Speeds and signal strength are outstanding through out the house. GUI is useful and intuitive on both web access and via mobile device. The mobile app is actually more detailed on traffic than the web access GUI.

After battling with a few routers over the years, and almost always having to flash DD-WRT, this router is the only one that I've not felt the need and seems to have all the useful capabilities needed built-in.

I knew I was gambling by purchasing a brand new device that just hit the market (November 1st I believe) with no real life reviews, but through heavy downloading, video streaming, multiple gaming devices running at once, and general use, the ACRH13 has handled it with ease. Currently I have 19 devices throughout my house ( I know o_O) and have had zero connectivity issues for two weeks.

Although it's still in the honeymoon phase, this is where my review currently sits, and will be updated if needed.
So far, flawless Asus. Good job.

5**3 months update *** Excellent, consistent performance - upgraded to 5*
By Funthomas
This review is for the Asus RT-ACRH13 MU MIMO AC1300 router. I noticed that different model reviews are mixed together ranging from 802.11N to 802.11AC routers, hence qualifying this.

1) This is the 24h review with first impressions. I will try to update after 7 days, 1 month.
Set up - the firmware is a little buggy. After configuring the SSIDs and PWDS for the 2.4 and 5GHz WiFi sometimes it still remembers the original factory SSID. Upon restart it happened that the WiFi didn't come on, but a power cycle fixed that. The Guest Network setup is little confusing. 3 guest networks can be configured, but a guest network profile cannot be edited, only enabled, and then deleted.
Performance - so far the performance is very impressive. I have a wired Fire TV and a NAS station and a MagicJack adapter. All working good. The Fire TV is much speedier than before loading home screen, accessing apps, etc. I live in 2 story wood frame house. WiFi is very strong at any spot of the house. I use 2 x smart phones (iPhone and Android) and 2 x Samsung tablets. I also have 2 x laptops connected (Samsung and Surface 4 Pro), both working without issues. Beam forming works very well too. As you move away from the router, using WiFi Analyzer, I see the signal strength drops on 5GHz. Once you stop, within a second the signal strength jumps to 45-50dBm which is a very strong signal. So far I had no dropped connections, or hitches. I also have a WiFi connected security camera, and it works flawlessly. So performance after 24h is very good! This is not a free review device, I paid full price. Watch this space.

**1 week update** No issues whatsoever. No loss of configuration or dropped connection. Running fairly cool too. I live in a gated community with a number of wifi APs around. Performance is strong and reliable. Tried a Netgear wifi range extender with the router, not because I need it, but out of curiosity. Set up the extender to connect to the router on 2.4GHz and extend on 5GHz (fast lane technology). No degradation of speed on the extended network compared to the router's speed. So far so good!!!!!

**1 month update. Still very happy with the unit. No change in any of the previously described good features.

** 3 months update. performance is still strong. My initial issues with the configuration were due to me doing that with my tablet. Accessing the router setup with my laptop worked flawless.

5Perfect for smaller homes and areas with low internet speeds.
By Walker Desing
Paired this with a Netgear CM400 and the performance is amazing. The 2.4ghz and 5ghz bands are consistently speedy and the range is excellent for what we use it for.

In my previous house, me and my roommates went in on an Asus RT-AC66U, which is twice as expensive as this. While there are some tradeoffs--lower top speed, reduced range (I assume), fewer ports--our purchase of the RT-AC66U was ultimately wasteful since our internet was only 100Mbps. If you don't have gigabit internet, or if you live in a place where the fastest internet is less than 100Mbps (like me) there is no reason to buy a super expensive cutting-edge router. And this thing is still damn powerful.

We bought this and the Netgear CM400 for around $120. Mediacom charges $10 per month as a modem subscription fee. So, in essence, we paid a years worth of modem/router fees up front, then everything after is pure savings. No brainer!
