    Veruit de slechtste router die ik ooit heb gebruikt. Kan niet langer dan 5 minuten een stabiele verbinding behouden. Het beste gebruik je hiervoor als bord of om met een hamer in te slaan. Vreselijk stukje technologie.

      Asus RT-AC58U is een basis wifi-router. Kunt u ons vertellen hoeveel apparaten er op de router zijn aangesloten, zoals pc's, tv's of mobiele telefoons? We hebben ook een lijst met de beste thuisrouters die u kunt gebruiken
