Gwalk,  I think your recomendation for the ASUS is fantastic.  I've gotten all devices and outside wireless surveillance cameras all set up and running smoothly.  I did have to put in a repeater for the camera that is farthest away from the ASUS router...but so far it is getting excellent signal.

Re: Post for GabeU

I'd love one of those ASUS routers.  I've had great luck with all of the ASUS products I've purchased over the years, and one of those routers that can run the Merlin software would be fantastic.  But, for me, it simply wouldn't be worth it.  I primarily use a desktop and only use my laptop between maybe 5%-10% of the time, and no other devices beyond that, so a very basic router is fine for me.  Still, that doesn't relieve me of my envy.  LOL.

Re: Post for GabeU

GabeU,  I have a fairly large home with laptop computers throughout that I use depending on which room I'm in.  Plus my tablet that I can carry around.  I have a laptop connected to my embroidery machine so I can send designs from my main computer to my embroidery machine through the network.  Plus smartphones and hubby's kindle.  It is so great to have this router now that keeps track of everyone's usage.  Like today.....hubby left his kindle connected and the data began to drain.  I caught it immediately and told him to disconnect.  Then there are also two wireless printers and the wireless cameras.  Great now to see what all devices are doing during the day.  And hubby uses his desktop computer too.  This ASUS is just fantastic.

Re: Post for GabeU

There should be a "community" Asus router that can be sent from customer to customer when they are having phantom data usage problems.  LOL.

Re: Post for GabeU

Well shooot guys, I noticed you all posting this several days ago but didn't realize it was in preparation of the router being shipped to me.
Is there anything I need to be doing ahead of the router arriving?

Re: Post for GabeU

Nothing I can think of.  If you keep backups of your computer maybe make a backup just before the new router is "installed."  Maybe just make sure that your computer is clean by running your AV scans and such.  Make sure you have a spot for it.  Other than this, I can't think of anything.

Re: Post for GabeU

alrighty, will do, I'll let you all know when it arrives. I don't actually know if it's been shipped or not..I never verified my physical/shipping address with anyone so hopefully it will get here okay. 

My Walmart order (via FedEx) has been bouncing back and forth between Bloomington, CA and Las Vegas, NV for the last 8 days now. ROFL!
