    what version on the router? e.g. A1, B1, C1, or… ?

  •  

    Damn, how's it compare to the RT-N66U?

    •  

      Biggest difference is Wireless AC vs N - generally equates to faster speed on the 5GHz band, as long as you have devices that are AC capable (pretty much everything nowadays).

      RT-N66U-A1: The CPU is much weaker and 1 gen behind (and only single core). Wireless N only. Avoid.
      RT-AC66U-A1: Essentially the same CPU as RT-N66U-A1 (old) but with new Wireless AC support added. Avoid.
      RT-AC66U-B1: The CPU is the same as RT-AC68U revision A1/A2 (dual core) and if you run Merlin firmware, you actually pick RT-AC68U for this particular hardware revision. However, hard to find this one (especially at bargain price).

      Note that Asus changed the CPU in RT-AC68U B1 onwards to a slightly more powerful CPU. That's why people generally prefer revision B1 or better for Asus RT-AC68U.

    Technology noob here, can we connect this to the Optus NBN modem? Is it worth connecting - seems like it's for a faster wireless speed?

    •  

      Assuming it's a modem/router combo, yes you still can, but you would have to bridge the connection. Probably a fairly easy thing to do, the process just varies depending on which model you have.

      Optus themselves should be able to help you with the process too.

      Wouldn't bother with an Asus Modem/Router, Been through 3 of them in 6 months. Plus they dont run a broadcom chip-set so look forward to slow internet. We lose 13mbps through our Asus modem.

      haha tough life… saving bulk on the product to cry about postage. I went courier for the $15 and total cost is cheaper than any of the previous OzBargain deals… plus being courier I'll get it by end of week!
