Glitchy

  • Summary: I purchased the router to be able to manage a pair of seagate 2 TB back-up drives. It took a while to figure out that I had to re-initialize the drives as "MBR" (rather than the default initialization they came with), then format them as NTFS. This is a valuable insight.

  • 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.

Just another router for me

Rahat, Amazon

  • Summary: It is just another router for me because I did not receive expected results. I purchased this router thinking that my old DLINK DIR-601 is not supporting a 20MB connection. My problem was slow browsing and weak signals.

The Asus RT-N56U wireless router

  • 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
