Range: Out of all the routers on this list, this one from Asus boasts the largest range at a staggering 5,000 square feet. It remains to be seen what the practical range of this router is, considering many other factors, but this is still impressive.
USB/LAN: This router also has the most inputs on this list: 8 LAN inputs for separate wired devices, and two USB ports for plugging in external hard drives for NAS or media server purposes. These are great features to have for PC gaming especially.
Secure: In addition to supporting multiple types of password security, this router also includes comprehensive Quality of Service programs, and can support IPv6. Parents looking to monitor their children’s usage or sysadmins looking to regulate bandwidth can both benefit from this software suite.
Local Friendly: As a tri-band router with 8 Ethernet ports, this is a first pick for any LAN party setup. The multiple bands ensure separate instances can run without interfering, and the wired ports ensure lightning fast speeds. Games like League of Legends or Starcraft II can run flawlessly.
Degradation: Several customers have observed that this router will begin to perform less effectively over time, requiring semi frequent reboots. Consider taking advantage of the extended warranty offer for this one.
