    Default ASUS RT-N66U Issue

    I just bought a new RT-N66U router. Connection is rock solid and blazing fast on all my wireless N devices, but I've found that wireless B/G devices are constantly dropping connection and having to reconnect. I connect to Netflix through my Wii which does not support N. Is there a fix for this problem?

    It has been recommended to me that I install the Asuswrt-Merlin firmware update for my router to fix dropped connection issues. Has anyone else had success with third party firmware/drivers?

    I see ASUS has released two new firmwares for this in the past week. Have you tried either one?

    I would go with Merlin's releases; not Asus. He fixes Asus problems, is very good about resolving problems, and has better features. Save yourself some grief.

    Update:

    Wireless G is not appreciably better with Merlin, Netflix on Wii showed minor improvement, still stops and buffers occasionally. Wireless N is still rock solid and screaming fast.
