I bought the RT-N66u from Staples. Hardware-wise, it's high end. But ASUS still fails to understand that they will never have the first-rate image that Apple has if they keep pumping out products with Engrish interfaces. Seriously, this router's interface has a "Famous Server List" and "Famous Game List" to automate the configuration of Port Forwarding for commonly used applications. :facepalm: I also bought one of their motherboards for the my new PC build. The Engrish in some of the labelling and in the BIOS flashing interface is "unberievable". :facepalm: :facepalm:

Note: I am not saying that ASUS stole from Apple's ideas for this particular router's physical appearance. But the influence is obvious in their Zenbook line and their all in one PCs.

I wish ASUS would steal the look of Apple's Airport Extreme router. That thing is gorgeous -- but pretty heavy considering that it's a dual-band router.

As long as they don't steal the idea that you need a proprietary application to connect into the interface, I am ok with it.

lol they said it has to be a canada site. It doesn't have a canada flag so they can't pm. lol wat?

going to check with her manager.

Edit: she came back and said it's possible. no shipping fee :) Wanted this router when it first came out. Was thinking about getting the ac version but the n66u had better reviews

I bought this router when Staples had $50 of coupon, hands down this is the best router money can buy. Before buying this I tried Cisco / Linksys 4000- 4300 series and was very disappointed. Cisco just didn't have the wireless range.

Awesome Router. Would definitely recommend it. I'd buy one if I didn't have it's little brother, the N56u.

Been looking for a good deal on this router or the n56.
Just bought a n56 a few weeks ago and love it. Very solid, no dropouts. Reception wasn't a jaw-dropping improvement over my old Belkin wireless N (which had issues with Apple products), so I still have to use an extender. Only regret with this is that I didn't notice it doesn't have a 'guest mode' option before I bought it. So now I'm trying to figure out a way to restrict access to our printer and (more importantly) our NAS. I guess I can just put a password on the DNS-323, couldn't I?
