Yes it is.

In fact it's the very definition of "superseded".

It doesn't mean the old routers are no good or even that the new routers are better. "Superseded" literally means something older has been replaced with a newer model.

Gigabit lan gets a tick from me - is this any good for the price?
A decent price for a very good, albeit not newest router. This has however been superseded by ‘R7000P’. Reviewer seems to be big fan: smallnetbuilder.com/wir…68u

Gigabit LAN is standard on any router that isn't bargain bucket.

This is good for the price. It's getting a bit long in the tooth at this point but if you want better you'l have to pay double this.
Have this, great router, never jam/drops or need restarting.

Fantastic price for this router. It is a pretty old model as mentioned but still a massive upgrade for anyone using their ISP bundled junk. It is a lot slower than the current generation of higher end routers so it won't suit everybody
i have had this router for around 2 years and from my experience it has been great. Soon I will be updating and using this as an access point just like I did when I had the WNDR3700. Definitely worth it if you have a really old router that uses wireless G, but if you have wireless N then it may not be worth the upgrade just yet unless all of your devices are capable of using wireless AC, but seeing as this backwards compatible with N and G then at this price it just might be worth it.

Well hopefully you will not be disappointed. Although I will mention that if you live in an old build house then the range will be affected, but that is why I have installed access points. Other than that it is a great piece of kit for the price.
Scorching hot, thanks op.

Excellent price - paid £100 for this last year - very tempted to get another.

And you can put Advanced Tomato on it

Yes but you can put the SH3 in modem only mode and use this with it.

In that case it was superseded with the other 6-7 models that are above 7000 in designation. Including the 7000D which is in no way a superior router.
Stating the P variant has superseded this is grossly misleading.
This isn't a matter of technical development and progression.
Excellent router but, for me, only when flashed with a custom firmware. I also overclocked it to 1.2Ghz.

I have sold this on now as I have just got a RT AC-86U, much better as a VPN client for AES 256bit CBC data.
Also I love the UI of the Asus router, much easier for policy based routing etc.


Great price for a good router, if it meets your needs.

That's what I meant. You're not free from the SU3 because you'll need it in modem mode*. The latency problems will still exist since it's still using the Intel chip.
It's not as bad as people make out but it's there.

I'll stick with my fritzbox 7490 best networking device I've ever bought (Inc cisco gear at work).

1 box solution acts as virtual switchboard for landline & voip phones, call blacklists/white lists complex voicemail menus. Reject blacklisted calls with a recorded message why plus VDSL/ADSL modem does the lot.

Costs a lot but worth every penny now the 7590 has superceded it adding mesh wifi, mimo and other bits can't recommend highly enough

Same here, got bored with the R7000 a year or so ago. VPN is way too slow and it's wireless is pretty shocking.
Top notch CPU for the money at 1.2Ghz but still not good enough.
I'd advise anyone to go for an R7800 at this point that doesn't want to break the bank and rock solid performance with no bizarre router resets, 1.7Ghz CPU that's power/heat efficient and VPN performance that can utilize a 40mbit connection properly etc. But just got an R9000 for £230 from amazon warehouse...too tempting.

It's so good doesn't need custom firmware and wipes the floor with Kong/BS dd-wrt messing around...they just can't help but tinker with a good formula whilst not correcting genuine glaring issues, still that's open source software for you I suppose.

Wi-Fi performance on R9000 still dreadful, just slightly less so.
Got a BT Whole Home 3 pack and it's life changing in geek terms.

Bought an ac1200 version of the Netgear router which works incredibly well.

It's running off my main router and still gets 200mbps on the WiFi and covers the second house well.

Worth considering, I bought it for 35ish at the time.

I didn't find the wireless too bad, in fact you could boost the transmission power as this router pre-dates the time when some EU ruling maximised the amount of power that a router could be pushed to.

I have still got a R7800, as an update to the R7000 I sold.

but it struggled with the speed of my connection and using a VPN client, I also completely disliked DD-WRT, not friendly for me to use.

The Asus RT AC86U with its dual core 1.8Ghz CPU.....

snbforums.com/thr…17/

is, according to Merlin.....


As I expected, this router is a beast for OpenVPN. Performance should be close to that with the GT-AC5300 (Asus's OpenVPN isn't entirely as optimized as my implementation, but it shouldn't be far behind).

So basically, expect around 200 Mbps of throughput (I doubt the GT-AC5300's extra cores will make any real difference, OpenVPN being single threaded). That's about 4x faster than the RT-AC68U, and probably around 3x faster than the RT-AC88U/RT-AC3100/RT-AC5300.


......and it is amazing in speed. The UI of policy based routing for the VPN client is so easy.
If you have the cash, and the need for its potential, then that Asus router would be my choice.

It was indeed superseded by all those models.
Technical development and progression are often implied by the word "superseded" but that isn't its primary meaning.

Various governments supersede various governments. But it doesn't mean the incoming is any better or worse than the outgoing. It literally just means something has been supplanted by something else.

"Donald Trump superseded Barack Obama".

It's the passage of time as much as anything else. (Plus collusion with Russia obviously... ;))

Owned the D7800 which quite frankly the worst over-priced piece of junk I've ever owned. Buying new you get 3 months support and after that Netgear expect you to pay for a yearly subscription for any support. The D7800 was advertised as being fully BT adsl 2 compatible, but it was constantly dropping the Internet connection claiming 'cable not connected'. Netgear admitted the firmware wasn't compatible with BT's current protocol and has refused to fix it.

Will never go back to Netgear, got the ASUS - DSL-AC88U now and working brilliantly.
Will this work on BT fibre on its own?
Will BT give you the details required to install it?

It is indeed a very impressive Asus router. Someone using a VPN connection noted....

The single highest values: DL: 228 Mbps UL: 262 Mbps

.....it just offered me a very good alternative to a pfsense box, too much for my feeble brain.
Is this a better router than the Asus AC68U
?
