    I would suggest that this is one of the best routers I have ever purchased

  • Stay away

    from Windsor, ON on February 25, 2019

    I purchased this router in the Summer of 2018. One of the main reason I purchased this router was the ability to setup VPN and run multiple VPN connections at the same time. Well their VPN feature on the router was not functioning properly and after several attempts I was told a patch is on the works and it would be ready end of 2018. Now it's February VPN works half the time and now my WIFI on the router is giving me intermittent Internet connection on all my devices except for the ones that are hardwired. For the amount of money I spent I should not be having these many issues. STAY AWAY!!!

    The Best, The Beast, Simply Amazing.... The best router on market now...Amazing speed, amazing coverage and more over amazing wifi stability in all areas of house. I have tried various brands including Cisco, Hitron ( Rogers Basic Router) but all are poor in performance in front go this ASUS ROG RAPTURE. Fairly easy to set up but takes few minutes to assemble the router and is bit heavy in terms of weight and price...Despite of this, its a great router to have...It blows away rogers router in terms of coverage and speed....
