Part of their 24hr sale. Best price I've seen thus far on this model as a refurb.

Great router. I've owned mine for a year and it's probably the best router I've owned. No reboots except when I flash firmware, it doesn't freeze up like other routers

2.4GHZ tops out at about 40Mpbs or around 8MB/sec
5Ghz tops out at 230Mpbs or 30MB/sec

2.4Ghz goes further by about 30 feet reliably.

both are tested at 40+feet away from the AP and between floors, /so i'm trying to give you a "real world" review.

Does anyone have any experience with refurbished products from Newegg?

Asus AC68 the U and R aversions are the same hardware. U is online and R = Retail. Asus AC68R 802.11ac AC1900 has CPU using 1 GHz Broadcom BCM4709 instead of the 800 MHz Broadcom BCM4708 used in the Asus U and R versions. I like the Asus router, but I do not think it is very user friendly. Here`s a good article about new Modem Router jonsguide. Look video Asus AC68R 802.11ac AC1900

Down to $89.99 now.

BTW, the RT-AC87U refurb is also on sale for $109.99: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833320221&... For $10 more it's probably worth it. Mine just arrived can report back on quality later today.
