Best home router money can buy.

Cheapest it's ever been according to camelcamelcamel

This router has been selling for over £100 previously on Amazon and holding its value in the high £70s on ebay too. A great upgrade to your your ISP provided router.

Note: This is not a modem! However you can still use it with an existing modem/router. Just disable the wifi on your existing modem/router and let the Asus take care of wifi duties. Has one of the best wifi broadcast ranges in this class.

edit: no way - this has just gone back up to £94, in the time it's taken to write this!!! :(

Any issues with buying from there or using the router in Uk?

"Buyers in search of a high performance wireless router should stick with the RT-N66U Dark Knight vs. the RT-AC66U, at least for now. Given the reports in the SNB Forums, it looks like the AC66's firmware is not yet stable, with some features disappearing to be worked on and others partially functioning. So if you are expecting smooth sailing with the AC66U, you may be unpleasantly surprised.

Even if you're willing to pay for the privilege of helping ASUS debug its product, you are unlikely to be rewarded with higher performance. For most uses, i.e. with two-stream clients, you'll get essentially the same performance in the 2.4 GHz band and, at least with the firmware used, better results in 5 GHz with the Dark Knight."

That review was from the 20th Aug 2012!

Plenty of recent reviews on the web to say firmware is still flakey in 2014. Unless you can find reviews to the contrary, throughput / range is still worse on the ac, albeit not by much. Maybe explains why it's almost the same price as router than has been out for nearly 2 years. About £13 difference on Amazon UK between both models.
