decent stable router with medium range and USB for under 100$

  • Summary: If you want to use a USB storage device as a samba share or ftp or network drive the transfer rates are really slow and the Wifi range is not great at all says 300mbs even next to the device 130 is the best pull i got.

  • Summary: So far, I'm most happy about the devices ability to handle P2P traffic while surfing the internet. With several P2P files going, my old WRT 610N would grind to a crawl. The RT-N56U seems to not notice, at least I don't notice. The QoS has been set to prioritize my Web traffic.
  • Pros: Throughput seems very good. Set up was not difficult., EzQoS works well and was EZ to setup.
  • Cons: Can't steath port 21, only close it., UI is clunky and not very user friendly

  • Summary: I purchased this router as my current Sky box was having issues maintaining its ADSL connection and multiple wired and wireless clients. This is a great looking router and wouldn't look out of place in any setting.

The Asus RT-N56U wireless router

7 January 2012
  • Excerpt: The name of this router is a diamond wireless router. So far it has exceeded my expectations and is highly recommended. This is a simple plug and play device that allowed me to connect to the Internet with the minimum of set up. This is a router that I purchased from Amazon.co.uk for £112.
  • Pros: good performance and much better than my Belkin wireless router, nice dual connection settings
  • Cons: one of the more expensive wireless routers

ASUS RT-N56U N600 Dual-band

  • Summary: Fantastisk router när den väl fungerar, vilket mitt exemplar slutade göra efter knappt ett halvår. Tydligen är det ett känt fel hos denna modell att den slutar fungera som den ska efter ett tag, och det verkar dessutom vara samma typ av fel.
