I upgraded to AC68U from N66U.

I am happy with the router. It's been running for 12 days.

That's good to hear. For the ac750, not so smooth. Sometimes cannot connect to internet. Dhcp issue. Will live with it for now and look around to get a better one.

Asus AC66U from Amazon.

The single core version is going for 87 USD at Amazon and the dual core AC66U_B1 version going for 20 USD more.

Recommend the dual core version for better performance if u have a lot of Wifi intensive clients.

I think you need to describe more on your problems.

Log into Asus then do what?

Is it poor wireless reception?

The problem only occurs when I restart the router, so I am currently leaving it on 24hrs. This weekend will restart it, if the problem persists I will update here again..

Probably same issue. I just go to 192.18.1.1 site, will go auto to Asus router. From there there is an icon said not working, I just press it and it will be fine.
