  • I TRIED THIS. AND IT DID NOT WORK. I ALSO DID A HARD RESET AND I STILL COULD NOT USE THE DEFAULT USER NAME AND PASSWORD. I AM AT A TOTAL LOSS WITH THIS. BEEN LOOKING FOR AN ANSWER ALL OVER THE INTERNET. WHAT DID I DO WRONG OR WHAT IS WRONG. I AM ONLNE WITH THE HARD WIRED COMPUTER BUT NOT WITH THE WIRELESS ONES. ANY HELP WOULD BE APPREICATED. I HAVE A ASUS RT-N56U ROUTER. THANKS. PIA

  • T.

    I saw your incredibly thorough review of Exede, which included a few thoughts on the Asus rtn56u router. I’m going to sign with Exede this week and need a new router. If you were purchasing a router this week would you buy the newer RT-N66U, the older RT-N56U or something else entirely? Appreciate your comments!

    • Hi T.,
      Thank you for your nice comment and great question! Thankfully the entire range of ASUS routers is quite capable, but here are a few quick comments:

      +If bang-for-the-buck is important and range is not critical, then I would stick with the RT-N56U, if offers proven performance at a semi-reasonable price.

      +If you want a little more range, then the NT66U with external antennas is a nice middle-ground choice that will offer great coverage over a large area.

      And finally, if money is no object you can always go with this beast which has all of the above and more, but is quite pricey and is likely a little overkill.

      Good luck T. and please let me know which one you end up choosing!

      Best regards,

    Thanks for your quick response! I am going to order the RT-N66U today, despite the high cost (gulp) because range has been an issue here. In other ways this router may be overkill for my needs, but with the new Exede service I’m just not sure what I will want so I splurged. Wish I could wait for a sale… but no can do. Exede will be installed either Friday or Monday. wish me luck. πŸ™‚

    • Awesome T, the RT-N66U* should be a great router! πŸ™‚

      *I like that the RT-N66U has been around long enough that any issues should already be ironed out of the firmware, whereas the ASUS RT-AC66U seems a bit too new for my tastes…

      Please keep us posted on how everything goes. Installation (by installers) is always my least favorite part of getting internet service, but hopefully everything will be well worth it for you! πŸ™‚

      Best regards and thanks for your nice comments,
