Cons: None so far

Pros: Great feature set
Comment:
This is still a very capable AC router even though it's now getting older. It's a pity though the print server feature doesn't work with a Brother laser printer I have.

Comment:
I read some reviews before I bought this router. So far, it is working great. I tried some other brand routers, all of them I end up need to reboot once every 1-2 weeks. This one, running solid so far.A lot of good features comes with this router. Too many I cannot mention here. And that is whole idea why I bought this router. I don't care which internet carrier it is, I want to have full control of my own LAN.I always thought router with external antenna is better. But guess what, I can control the power of the WIFI. This one works a good as any other type.Beside all the good things, there are a few draw backs. Some functions are buggy. Like my external USB stick somehow not working. File sharing is a good feature but seems like too complicate and not always work. ASUS are not very good with that yet.Login access right also needs to be improved. If I want to use this router for file sharing with others, I must have different IDs with different access level. ASUS is missing that.Overall, I think this router worth 4.5 stars. It lost 0.5 star because of the buggy features and login. But I guess ASUS can improve those in the future with updates. So I would round up giving it a 5 stars.

Cons: File Sharing

Pros: Fast, easy, great features
Comment:
After installing the latest firmware this router is running great! I only bought this router because my last one died (it was a Asus lasted 4 years) I have a usb hdd plugged into router and the only way I could access the files were by making it password free which they seem to highly recommend against since they warn you three time that anyone on your network will be able to view your file. If I have a password set I can not log in.... wish there was a fix for this cause the files stream great off my usb 3.0 hdd on my neo x8 media center.I have a 60 mbps internet connection and this router takes full advantage of that.

Product Features

The ASUS RT-AC56U leads the way in next generation routers, offering dual-band Gigabit wireless with 802.11 ac Wi-Fi. Its powerful dual-core CPU and DDR3 RAM provides the best performance in both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. The 5 GHz band works at up to 867 Mbps, while the 2.4 GHz frequency tops 300 Mbps, serves an incredible combined bandwidth of 1167 Mbps. That's three times the speed of standard 2 x 2 wireless-N routers! Plus, a USB 3.0 port means data transfers at up to ten times the speed of USB 2.0, and the RT-AC56U comes dressed up in the classy black diamond design.

The exclusive ASUSWRT interface delivers 30-second setup, multiple SSIDs, and IPv6 support to further enhance networking, while USB 3.0/USB 2.0 ports instantly turn the RT-AC56U into a file, 3G/4G sharing, enhanced media server, VPN, and printer server for the ultimate in multi-role router functionality.
