" ...  I have a 1800 square ft Cape Cod style home (1 & a half story) with a full basement. ... There is not a room in my house, not a crevice, where I don't get absolutely max bandwidth in speed tests, even in the basement. ... With all doors closed this device manages an incredible 75% of my max bandwidth in the upstairs, far side of it! ... By comparison, my previous router, a Pace 5268AC (AT&T) required a mesh extender in order to get a decent signal in my basement and got no signal at all in my garage.  ...  "

" ...  In addition to the speed being just as fast as the router my internet provider gives for free, it drops the connection constantly through WiFi, but maintains the connection to all of my devices that are plugged in directly(the router drops the connection, it’s not an internet issue). ... All of that said, the only real nice thing I have to say is that the signal does cover my entire home which is great, but I am making the switch to the nighthawk. ... Hope this helps any of you debating which router to go with  ...  "

" ...  The Asus AC2900 is an excellent node used in conjunction with my Asus AC3100 (RT-AC88U). ... I have 4 levels in my house and after placing the router in our kids room downstairs, I have full bars on both bands throughout the entire house on all of our devices that support both the 2.4 Ghz and the 5 Ghz band. ... I would recommend this router to anyone who has multiple floors in their home.  ...  "
