Just purchased this router under model # RT-AC66R, which is Asus's models for Bestbuy.
H/W version: A1
F/W version: 126.96.36.199.266
Router optimal antenna config (per Asus):
Got to work:
IPv6 tunnel (Hurricane Electric), this was very easy to do. Details here, »www.tunnelbroker.net/forums/inde ··· c=2680.0
WoL (Wake on LAN/WAN) works great with Asus AiCloud app on Android phone. Tested it by turning off PC and power cycling router to clear out ARP cache. Computer still powered on after that.
AiCloud app accessing LAN works and so does SMB. Streaming video, 720p choppy even on Wifi, probably the apps fault? Also able to access PC and printer on VPN.
VPN Server does work (Tested on Android phone); however, I had to forward port 1723 to the routers LAN, 192.168.1.1, to get it to work. Reported this to Asus...
Adjusted the output power from default 80mW to 120mW (both 2.4 and 5ghz), which seems to give me the best all around signal without all the noise (router on 2nd story of 2 story house). The range on this thing is crazy. Went 5 houses down to my neighbors house, router set at 200mW (max value), and still could connect (~500ft away). Though the signal was weak, ~512Kbps down/~750Kbps up (30Mbps Internet).
Control Channel is set to Auto, seems to give best results for my area. Tried channel 11, which was showing up as less congested in WiFi Analyzer but didn't get as good performace as the Auto setting. Both 2.5 and 5Ghz are on Auto.
So far, the highest link speed I can attain, is with my Alienware Laptop, ~384Mbps. My phones and such can get only ~75Mbps, a limitation of their design.
So far, I am happy with the routers performace.
