It is very simple to set up and got my fiber, printer sharing and 3G failover setup very quickly.
The User Interface from Asus is the best Iv seen when compared to Netgear and Lynksis.
For the past couple of months that I have had this device I can't remember the last time I have had to reset this device when compared to my previous routers which I had to reset almost daily.
Overall this is an awesome product and works very well.
Easy to setup with ample customisation

Seems to work fine with Telkom.
Very easy to setup with ample customization should I feel the need to tweak it or add guest connections etc.
