  • Summary: When I think of ASUS, the first thing that comes to mind are their award winning motherboards and video cards. In the past, I wouldn't have even considered recommending them to people asking me my opinions about routers. With the ASUS RT-N56U, my opinion has changed. While I have been happy with the transmission rate of my D-Link router, with the ASUS RT-N56U my speeds have increased noticeably.
  • Pros: » Good signal strength, » Dual USB ports for sharing external storage, printers, or other devices, » Great performance, » Gigabit wired connections, » Dual band 5GHz & 2.4GHz wireless-N, » Great wireless range
  • Cons: » Scheduler could be better, » No external antennas or connections to add your own

ASUS RT-N56U review: One of the best looking dual-band wireless routers you will ever see

Good Gear Guide.au
11 October 2011
  • Summary: The ASUS RT-N56U takes router styling to a whole new level. It's slim and (we think) good looking; most importantly, it has plenty of features and performs very well. Its simultaneous dual-band Wi-Fi worked well in our tests and produced fast speeds, especially from close range. We do wish the router's Web interface was faster and a little better laid out, but you quickly get used to it.
  • Pros: Simultaneous dual-band Wi-Fi, Gigabit Ethernet, USB storage ports, printer sharing, good wireless speed
  • Cons: Web interface a little slow and takes time to get used to, power adapter is flimsy
