Because I am tired of having my current router (Asus RT-66AC) lose its config every month or so. I have to spend time reflashing the firmware though the emergency recovery application. Now, I don't fault Asus; as for the last few years, it worked very hard and I got my money's worth out of it (~$250 US).
Внимание! 11 января 2014 г. вышла новая версия прошивки для asus rt-n66u, включающая в себя новый драйвер wi-fi, который позволил немного увеличить "радиус действия" беспроводного адаптера. ASUS is a worldwide top-three consumer notebook vendor and maker of the world’s best-selling, most award-winning, motherboards. Driven by innovation and committed to quality, ASUS won 4,256 awards in 2013 and is widely credited with revolutionizing the PC industry with its Eee PC™. Asus RT-66AC This wireless router routinely tops the ratings. It's pricey too. For some reason, Best Buy / Future Shop doesn't carry it. If you want one, you need to go online or to a specialty computer store. That means you could face problems with returns. I have an Asus RT-AC66U (Firmware Version: 1.0.01) with the same issue. This router works flawlessly with over 15 devices on the network, everything from smart TVs to ATAs to cellphones, laptops and even my washing machine. I've only ever had to reboot the router to apply firmware updates. Got a Billion 8800 but i just use it as a modem the Asus RT-66AC does the DHCP and Wifi. Have the Zxyel at the office, its not bad, but not as good as the Billion. Also used it as a modem only.
Table 2: Wireless settings summary. ASUS provides three Channel Bandwidth settings on the 2.4 GHz radio, i.e. Auto (default), 20 MHz and 40 MHz, and adds one more (80 MHz) on the 5 GHz radio. When set to Auto, you can't set the operating channel (ASUS labels this the Control Channel, when it exposes the setting).. Like other router manufacturers, ASUS is adding "cloud" features to its routers
