Great for someone who isn't scared to use a different firmware

Summary: I have used several Asus routers. Out of the box these stink, but if you install the tomato firmware, this turns into a powerhouse router. Yes it does add some complexity, but it is well worth it.
Summary: I bought this router based on it's specifications: 802.11n and USB ports for network print or storage services. My intention was to buy one, and if it worked out, buy more to upgrade all the wireless routers found at the homes of my parents, siblings, etc. After all, I'm the family tech support guy.
Summary: I replaced my Netgear W54g with the WL-500W after reading a review that it worked with a Mac. Fat chance. It lights up, looks pretty, but so far, nothing. If anyone has any ideas on how to make it work with a Mac, please post a comment and let me know how or email me directly at...

Summary: Pros: 802.11n, usb storage link / print server When this access point works, it works well, but it doesn't work a lot of the time. I have a lot of problems connecting 802.11g clients and connection via 802.11n isn't available right away after connection is initiated.
Conclusion: So far, I haven’t really touched on any downsides of the router, because there are not that many, fortunately. There are a few though, which I will touch on now. First off, the admin panel to the router is far from being intuitive. It’s ugly, clunky and sometimes makes simple tasks difficult.
Pros: Very high-performance, Great styling, Multi-Function (Can plug in Webcam, HDD, Thumb Drive, Printer, etc), Windows setup works well
Cons: Wireless proved difficult without using Windows installer, Admin panel is clunky and confusing overall
Summary: Asus WL-500W è un router wi-fu multifunzione di ultima generazione che consente il collegamento multiplo di varie periferiche: stampanti, hard disk esterni e ovviamente pc. La caratteristica principale è il download master consente di effettuare il download di files dalla rete e di assegnarne la...
Excerpt: Mycket bra funktioner vilket många hemanvändare behöver. För det första får man en bra och stabil, i alla fall med senaste mjukvaran installerad, trådlös bredbandsrouter som man kan installera antingen helt manuellt eller genom att använda den s.k.
Pros: Mycket funktioner som underlättar användandet i SOHO - nät
Cons: Kräver teknisk kompetens för att få allt att fungera .
