ASUS makes some great gear. This is very cool!
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
This is not cool... What were they thinking when hey designed this crap?? Unless the price tag for this is in the $60~ range I don't see a use for it. I own an Asus u66n dark knight router (best router I have ever owned!) and owned an Asus u66ac (2nd he's router I've ever used) but took it back because of the .ad standard. Both have gigabit ports, both are dual-band N 2.4 and 5ghz, both are N900 routers meaning 3x3x MIMO...
The N12HP specs are outdated... No gigabit LAN ports.. But the device is designed for wifi right? N300!?!?! Incredibly outdated especially when even tablets are shipping with 2x2 antennas. But the biggest problem with this router is 2.4ghz ONLY?!?! 5ghz N missing right as many products are finally able to make use of this band but anyone that knows about wifi knows that 2.4ghz naturally travels further and through more objects and walls with less interference compared to 5ghz which doesn't travel nearly as far.
It is the 5ghz band that needs this boost power, not 2.4ghz.
Again spec wise this is a $40-60~ router with upgraded large antenna. This might be good for an office not for the average home....
