As a growing number of homes contain more than one computer, their users must find ways to network them. The primary purpose for creating a home network tends to be to provide Internet access to all computers within the house. There are other good reasons, however.

Reviews
ASUS RT-AC51U Wireless Dual Band Router, AC750 (300+433 Mbps), 4x Fast LAN, USB 2.0, 2x Antenna is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Easy set up but wifi range not so good Fast and easy to set up - literally plug and play. (We use it with our satellite broadband modem.) Upgrading to the latest firmware was also trouble free. However, running a home office in an outbuilding opposite the location of the router in our house, the wifi signal from the ASUS was nowhere near as good as we used to achieve with our previous router (an Aztec GR7000). We are having to use a powerline adapter for one of our PCs to get enough signal to download emails and use the internet. Inside the house, which has a lot of thick stone walls, the signal was about the same as, or a little less than, the Aztech. For these reasons I can only give 3 stars and semi-recommend.
