They are impressively powerful with options in their OS that outclass any commercial product end users buy and at a fraction of the cost.I've never even heard of 'Routerboard' until some posts on here recently. What makes them awesome?
I just replaced my DIR-655 with the ASUS N66U. Was going to go with the AC version but after reading a bit and going off Smallnetbuilder's review (Link), it just seemed not worth it. Being rev 1 tech, increased cost, plus having to go with an AC NIC/adapter. If I read their analysis correctly the largest gains aren't easily realizable depending on your 2.4 GHz congestion. Plus most of what I do is wired streaming.Anyone have experience with the Asus RT-660U 802.11c router? Is it noticeably better then the 802.11N version? Any comments on the range/coverage across a house?
That's what it was, more or less. For some reason the Mac stuff, and my PS3, were being assigned a default gateway of 192.168.1.251, which according to the N66U belonged to a Netgear device. That didn't make sense because the only Netgear equipment was an old switch that wasn't being used anymore. Then laying in bed tonight I remembered the adapter on my sprinkler controller (irrigation cady). Unplugged it, and now the other devices get the correct gateway and work fine. Not sure why some devices were being assigned that as the gateway, so will need to get that straightened out next weekend. Not that I even use the sprinkler system.Check the gateway IP address the problematic devices are using. Also sanity check any VLAN's and ensure they're going in the right one (if you have guest networks etc).
