    Ermagerd the number is now over 9000 :p

    Idk, I'd rather see 10Gbit Ethernet on consumer routers tbh, I can think of a few things to do with that.

    A Spider-Router does.
    Can he swing
    Can he swing from a web? Oh, no!
    From a web?
    No, he can't
    He's a Router!
    He's a Router.

    HALF-LIFE 3 confirmed! Looks like a head crab :eek: On a serious note I agree with the other commenters about the crazy antenna's!

    Movie should be called ( JOHN CARPENTER'S THE ROUTER ). I hope my comment doesn't get erased just trying to throw in some jokes/laughs.

    My next router purchase is gonna be one from a company that is known for providing updates/support for a 'long time', and also a router that I'll be able to use open source firmware on (which will further extend the life of the product). I'd also research the performance & features of the router, but wouldn't have to be too fancy. Really don't think it would be a Gaming Router though that I'd buy, even when I am a gamer!

    I think, the router testing needs a bit more info... to see how bufferbloats reduction works...

    dslreports.com/speedtest even when broken, you can set the bufferbloat be set in high resolution mode... and you can see how the shaping process works...
    this increases good-put, quality of net and internet feels instant.

    yes I'm very verbal about it. cause removing bufferbloat improves the perceived quickness

    Asus should focus on creating better mainboards imo.
    Plus it is called latency, not ping - I don't know why gamers keep saying ping. And professional-wise that's not very smart from Asus either...

    Blocking/Permitting access is done by firewalls. That's why there should be a Firewall between your PC A and the Router, because your Router at that point is the gateway that connects to the insecure internet WAN. The Firewall built in the Asus router is... meh. And with these features such as WTFast it is more of a security problem too.
    The whole purpose of NAT is just network address translation which is used to connect a session of a private IP address that wants to connect to a public IP address and vice-versa. Private IP addresses can be used only once each address within a LAN, but there can be several LANs within a WAN, and that's why NAT (and PAT for port address translation) is required for such connections.

    MAC addresses never get routed. They're used to determine physical connections. Once a packet gets routed to another network, the MAC address of the packet will "change" on the other network depending on devices that are used in that particular network (routers for example). MAC works only on layer 2. Routing takes place at layer 3.
    For example your PC A with its MAC address is used between the layer 2 link when it communicates with your Router. However, when the Router communicates with the Internet, it uses its own MAC Address (from the physical port that is connected to the internet) when forwarding your request that came from PC A.


    Why not reviewing an AVM Fritzbox anyway?
    They're not common in the USA I know, but still the best option for home users imo.
    With AVM my latency to the next hop is <2ms. I don't need Asus's 400-bucks-special-features :D

    The 5ghz perfromance on this is insanely impressive, compared to the nightgear it crushed it at long distance.... shame about the price, puts me off a lot... but i need a product that has this level of range

    Why did the router cross the road? Because it could.

    You show a wifi 802.11ax router but you you don't test 802.11ax feature ? Its a joke ?

    And you write :
    "As I am writing this review, it still is not possible to test AX or WIFI 6, AX clients are simply not yet available"

    But it's wrong. Samsung Galaxy S10 has 802.11ax feature.

    test not complete and not very interesting...
