ASUS RT-N56U
Dual-band for Lag-free Entertainment

The stylish ASUS RT-N56U is an advanced wireless router combining a series of cutting-edge and powerful technologies to offer users an ideal internet and wireless package. Users can double their wireless performance and bandwidth with simultaneous 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands and speed up to 600Mbps combined. While basic internet applications such as browsing or file downloading can occur in 2.4GHz, wireless HD content streaming takes place in the 5GHz band so you can enjoy smooth, buffer-free entertainment.

Ai Radar Optimized and Reliable Wireless Coverage

This unique and efficient design drastically increases wireless signal coverage and quality without increasing power consumption. Ai Radar intelligently adapts beam patterns to local conditions to enable higher-gain / signal strength. Ai Radar shapes signals to offer the strongest possible output, transforming what may be a weak signal to a stronger unidirectional one, improving throughput at same time. Traditional routers blast beam patterns everywhere which leads to signal loss. The ASUS RT-N56U locks in on each wireless devices to provide dedicated and stable signals.

Multi-Function Twin USB Ports

With effortless connectivity to a range of devices, FTP, SAMBA, UPnP AV server and DLNA all supported, sharing and networking has become easier than ever. Additionally, the RT-N56U can continue downloading FTTP, FTP and BitTorrent files to the USB disk all day even when your PC is turned off! Furthermore, twin USB ports allow the router to offer printer and file server functions, so users can enjoy simultaneous wireless printing, scanning and file sharing via the comfort of standardised USB!

Powerful Online Multitasking at up to 300,000 Data Sessions

The ASUS RT-N56U provides support for a massive data pipeline of up to 300,000 data sessions, meaning that the RT-N56U has around 20 times the networking capacity of other high-session routers. This high capacity ensures that multiple data transfer jobs don't slow down even during a heavy load.

I bought this router because the virgin 'superhub' gave me terrible performance on a 100mb connection After looking around at various review sites I decided on the Asus RT N56u and can say wholeheartedly it's one of the best purchases I've ever made!
The connection is flawless in any room in my house; I get at least 75mb EVERYWHERE upstairs or downstairs, or outside.my wireless top speed is 107mb The router is easy to set up simply plug the router into your cable modem and then connect an ethernet cable to a computer either Mac or Windows and follow the setup wizard that automatically is displayed by your web browser. The Router allows for two different frequencies either 2.4 or 5ghz simultaneously
This router suits all your possible needs; if you're a heavy downloader or you watch a lot of HD streams or If your a gamer looking for a router that's going to give you a lag free experience I can say from my experience this is the router for you,
some of the features includes the ability to optimize your network experience for a particular activity; either gaming, ftp, HD streaming and Email + Web. It also displays all the connected devices with a possibility to either block one and even prioritize which device you wish to have a better share of the network.

All in all I can say this is the perfect router

When you search for ADSL modem, ADSL router etc. on Amazon, this device comes up but PLEASE note this router doesn't include a modem - you will need to get a separate bridging modem to go with this. Amazon really need to update the search so idiots like me don't get so easily fooled. The silly thing is I had even read/watched many reviews of this router and it wasn't mentioned once. So remember, if you want this bit of kit add a bridging modem to your order!

The first thing you want to do when you get the router is to set up wireless security settings of "WPA2 Personal" and enter your own password into the "WPA-PSK Key" box to avoid potential interlopers from simply accessing the unprotected router and changing settings at will for their own nefarious purposes.

NOTE: you need to change wireless security settings for BOTH the 2.4GHz and 5GHz tabs to secure the router, as they use separate settings.

To access the router's web interface after connecting to it either via ethernet or wireless one needs to type in the address bar of a browser:

192.168.1.1

and enter the default username and password of:

admin

To get this router working with my Virgin Media cable I had to switch the MODEM off and then on again. It wouldn't automatically work by using the "Quick Internet Setup" button in the router's settings without power cycling the MODEM. This is a minor problem, as it only took me around 10-20 seconds to perform the reset, and it may not happen to you. After that, I could browse the web straight away.

Once I had determined that I could connect to the internet perfectly fine, I visited the official ASUS site to upgrade the firmware of the router (which at the time of writing is 1.0.1.8d). As I apparently cannot post links in Amazon reviews, no matter how innocent they may be, you can find the firmware update by typing "ASUS RT-N56U" into Google, clicking the first result and then the "Download" tab. Extract the downloaded archive to a directory of your choice and then enter the router's configuration page and click the "Advanced Setting" button, "Administration", "Firmware Upgrade" tab. Then click the "Browse..." button next to the box labeled "New Firmware File".

I have been using a Virgin Media 'Superhub' and when i say super hub it is just because Virgin media called it that, and it is anything but.

I had been having problems with laptops/tablets loosing connection and then re-connecting, this was quite annoying, after looking at the superhub there seemed to be no problems, i was also getting quite slow connection to the internet even though i should have 30Mb/s.

After getting this ASUS router all these probems are a thing of the past, no laptops drop off the wifi connection and when i check speed now i am getting just under 30Mb/s. and as a plus my wifes laptop uses the new 5g band and the router will allow both 2.4 and 5g connections so if you have newer technology this allows older and newer to work together and allows speed increses for the newer items (this is only between peripherals on the home network as 30Mb/s is way slower than the router can handle.

I have also managed to set up a VPN (Virtual Private Network) and connect to it when i am away from home to connect to my network storage.

There is a search filter that you can enable so that certain words are detected and then blocked and also setting times for computers/tablets etc to be able to connect to the net, this would be useful if you have teenage kids and want to stop them being up all night on the net.

Overall i have been very impressed with the router, the functionality it has given me and also getting over all of the problems of the super hub, it has also increased the range i am able to use it with my tablet, i used to use a range extender with the superhub to get to the far side of the house, but i don't need that anymore.

Great router and highly recommended, i just wonder what the more expensive ASUS routers are like :)
