    Yeah, makes sense, Asus wants you to buy the "new" one ;)

    Unless it has new hardware with more range, I won't bother

    I have the new router. The hardware is different, different chip, CPU 4core CPU instead or 2core like the original 5300, 8 ports instead of 4. Dedicated game ports 1&2 suppose to decrease ms latency when plugged into those ports. Aggregated ports for NAS.

    It seems odd Asus would keep up the same firmware numbering scheme for 2 "different" routers. Usually they start over with the numbering for new firmware on new devices.

    @Phoenix are you going to get one? Maybe do a review on the differences in performance between them?

    uhh no, not worth the upgrade and the QC of ASUS seems to be failing if you read those forums, some had to return a few, random reboots and disconnections. Classical ASUS Swiss Cheese
