Hello Skooter Blog readers. Today I talk about a router Roteador Wireless Gigabit 1300Mbps ASUS RT-AC66U (ASUS RT-AC66U 1300 Mbps Gigabit Wireless Router) acquired on eBay. This router is the successor to the Asus RT-N66U Asus, which is considered by many as the best wireless router for IEEE 802.11n (WiFi n). The ASUS RT-AC66U has the same visual, but supports the new standard, still under development, IEEE 802.11ac, supporting up to 1300Mbps theorists in the 5GHz band and up to 450Mbps in 2.4GHz band.
With the high competition in the market for routers and the ability to update firmware, Unfortunately manufacturers have launched products that are not really ready. Therewith, the ASUS RT-AC66U eventually suffered to some reviews poor early, it was unstable and some features were not ready. Fortunately this problem was overcome and today my ASUS RT-AC66U works great. My recommendation for those who buy it is to download the newest firmware the Asus website and update it as soon as it is installed. I flinched and trusted only in function to check for updates on this interface web router, I said I was with the latest. But several new versions have been available on the Asus website for manual download, what ended up seeing only once I have it set up and have faced some problems. After the update, be sure to restore the factory settings (reset) to clear the NVRAM. This should not be necessary, but when you have updated serious problems of instability until I decided to restoring the factory settings and setting it all again. Made the upgrade problems are over and the ASUS RT-AC66U It proved an excellent router.
Among the supported protocols are IEEE 802.11a, IEEE 802.11b, IEEE 802.11g, IEEE 802.11n, IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.3u, IPv4 e IPv6. To take advantage of the speed of the new IEEE 802.11ac standard is necessary that the devices / plates used in the network are compatible, which is quite rare nowadays, but it also works great on the IEEE 802.11n. I opted for it to already be ensured for the future. Although there is no guarantee that it will be compatible with the final version of the IEEE 802.11ac standard, the more likely it is fully compatible, or at least have the required characteristics. It supports the 80MHz channels in the 5GHz band, that are required in the new standard, and a major contributor to the higher speeds.
The Roteador Wireless Gigabit 1300Mbps ASUS RT-AC66U has 3 acopláveis antennas, that can be adjusted for better coverage. As is removable is also possible to use other, more powerful antenna, directional, pigtails, etc. But the original antennas are enough for good coverage in a house.
Among the encryption options are WEP 64-bit, 128-bit WEP, WPA2-PSK, WPA-PSK, WPA-Enterprise, WPA2-Enterprise. WEP is there to maintain compatibility with older devices that only support this type of encryption, but should be avoided, such as encryption may be easily broken in minutes. Always prefer WPA or WPA2 for enhanced security.
The ASUS RT-AC66U It has a good firewall, with intrusion detection, DoS protection, access control for parents, network services filter, filter URLs and doors filter. It also has UPnP, DLNA, DNS Proxy, NTP Client, DDNS, Port timing, Virtual Servers, DMZ, among others. It supports IPSec VPNs in Pass-throuth standards, PPTP Pass-Through, L2TP Pass-Through, PPTP server. The WAN connection can be made with automatic IP, Static IP, PPPoE, PPTP, L2TP, supports Dual Link and Proxy Multicast.
Connecting an external hard drive in one of your USB ports, the ASUS RT-AC66U can be used as media server. He suportorta JPEG image, Audio MP3, WMA, WAV, PCM, MP4, LPCM, OGG, and ASF video, AVI, DIVX, MPEG, MPG, TS, VOB, WMV, MKV e MOV.
The ASUS RT-AC66U also has an application (Download Master) that can be used to download files directly to the HD, without maintaining a connected computer. The application supports HTTP, BitTorrent, ED2K, and other. It also supports encryption, DHT, PEX e magnet link. Has upload bandwidth control and download, and scheduler downloads.
The USB ports also serve to connect printers and use the ASUS RT-AC66U to Print Manager, or to connect a 3G / 4G modem and use a 3G / 4G as a backup if the WAN connection fails.
The ASUS RT-AC66U also includes QoS features, Samba and FTP file server, Traffic Monitor, network map, e até 3 Visitors networks in each frequency band with different keys and restricted access to the Internet (without access to local resources) configurable.
As to doors, the ASUS RT-AC66U It has a Gigabit Ethernet port (10/100/1000 BaseT) to access WAN, e but 4 LAN ports also Gigabit Ethernet. All Gigabit Ethernet ports are also naturally compatible with lower speeds, in other words, they support 10, 100 or 1000 Mbps, all with auto cross-over function (MDI-X).
There are physical power buttons (ON / OFF), reset e WPS. The ASUS RT-AC66U It comes with AC adapter that accepts 110V ~ 240V(50~60Hz). The plug is the North American standard, so it takes a adapter to use it in new outlets Brazilian. The output of the source is 19 V with maximum current 1,58 A.
The ASUS RT-AC66U It comes with a stand to leave him standing, an RJ45 cable, a CD with manual and software utilities, the AC power adapter, a quick guide and warranty card.
One thing I liked this Asus router is that it saves resources, including some that competitors ignore. For example, in it you can redirect a WAN port to a different LAN port. It has a device with web server that does not accept port configuration (must be 80) but your ISP blocks port 80? No problem, redirect any external door to door 80 Device. Want to put multiple computers accessible via Remote Desktop? You can not put all the default port: 3389. To change the port on the PC you need to move to the Windows registry, which is inconvenient and also now requires a different port on the same connection on the LAN. With the ASUS RT-AC66U simply use several different WAN ports, each redirected to the door 3389 a micro. No need to move on record, the connection via LAN remains the same and the external connection is made by adding the port number. Access via Telnet? It also has. I find these quite beneficial features. Ultimately, that sort of thing manufacturers like Netgear do not put in home routers. Asus puts!
