I know this is a somewhat old thread, but my current router is starting to die.
I have been debating between the ASUS RT-AC68u, or the Netgear Nighthawk 1900.
Both were released late last year, probably overkill for home use, but I want a stable router for years to come. My question is if anyone hear has had any experience with either. On Amazon, both have decent reviews, but it seems that the consensus is that the firmware for both is still not completely stable. I do not mind getting the ASUS RT-66u, but I am not averse to getting the latest and 'best' even though more expensive. I am currently leaning towards the ASUS because of historical positive reputation.
The other option is to just wait and get this : https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/soaprouter/soap-first-smart-router-w-touch-display-powered-by
It is probably what the future of routers will be.Edited by deveng - 3/18/14 at 3:05pm
