Re: ASUS RT-AC66U Wireless Router

For one of my enterprise client I have been in the process of conducting an evaluation of the RT-AC66U and the Netgear R6300. For the RT-AC66U utilizing firmware v3. I was able to find a configuration that seems to provide very good performance -- and for those interested in the RT-AC66U following is the parameter's that I changed that so far in my testing yielded very positive results. One of the parameters that I changed in this firmware version was suggested by RMerlin who creates customized version of Asuswrt for this model. FYI, I do not use 3rd party firmware.

2.4 Ghz Frequency
Wireless Mode: N Only
b/g Protection: Disabled
Channel bandwidth: 40 Mhz
Control Channel: Auto
Professional page suggested by RMerlin
Enhanced interference management: Disabled

5 Ghz Frequency
Wireless Mode: N Only
Channel bandwidth: 20/40/80 Mhz
Control Channel: Auto

All other parameters are the default settings that ASUS provides -- exception being security configuration where I use WPA2/AES and 63 alphanumeric mixed case characters.

Since my client has zero interest in b/g wireless devices the above configuration changes is producing much better performance metrics so far.
