  • Summary: Generally, we are glad about ASUS RT-AC56U wireless router we tested. Even though it is as not efficient as its older counterpart, RT-AC68U, it's much cheaper.

Asus RT-AC56U

20 January 2014
  • Excerpt: Not only does this wireless router pack some serious looks (anyone think this black box is rocking a bit of a Burberry vibe?), but it’s the fastest of the lot in our group test, with advertised speeds of a bleeding 867Mbps. That’s on paper though - how does it fare in our real world tests?

ASUS RT-AC56U Gigabit Router

13 November 2013
  • Conclusion: There isn’t much more that needs to be said about the gains in speed from Wireless N to Wireless AC and the only negative is that too few devices exist to utilize the 5GHz band at the present time.

Asus RT-AC56U review

11 April 2014
  • Excerpt: As one of the first manufacturers to make an 802.11ac device, we expect quite a lot from Asus. Its RT-AC56U is certainly off to a good start on paper. With a four-port Gigabit Ethernet port, Ethernet WAN port, USB and USB3 ports, it's got everything we'd want on a modern router.

6 August 2014
