Wireless-N600 Gigabit ADSL Modem Router
The ASUS DSL-N55U Wireless-N600 ADSL Modem Router works has both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz wireless networks, with up to 600 Mbps total bandwidth. It uses dual CPUs for faster and more stable connections - the wired and wireless networking functions each have a dedicated CPU, guaranteeing improved performance. It can also connect to the internet using either the Ethernet or DLS WAN (Wide Area Network) ports, allowing customers to use it as a either a modem router or a standalone router.
- True two-in-one modem router with both Ethernet and DSL internet connection (WAN) ports
- Dual-CPU, dual-WAN design offers more performance and flexibility for wired and wireless connections
- Concurrent Dual Band - two 300 Mbps Wireless-N networks at once
- Gigabit Ethernet ports with hardware NAT for the fastest, most reliable internet performance, up to 4.5 times that of software-based NAT Gigabit routers.
- File and printer sharing via two multi-functional USB ports
- ASUSWRT Dashboard user interface for easy setup, signal monitoring and network application control
Two WAN Ports for DSL and Ethernet Offer Double The Choice
The DSL-N55U has two WAN (Wide Area Network) ports, allowing it to be used as a standalone router when not operating as a ADSL modem router. You can choose which mode suits your needs at any time, reducing cost and clutter by not having to buy separate power-consuming devices. Whether for a basic home setup or a full wireless network, this dual-WAN design gives you total flexibility.
Enhanced Signal Range and Stability
ASUS AiRadar intelligently strengthens wireless connectivity using beamforming technology, high power amplification and ASUS RF fine-tuning. This ensures extended coverage, dynamic data speed increases and enhanced stability.
Gigabit Internet Browsing with Hardware NAT
Equipped with a powerful hardware NAT acceleration engine and built-in Gigabit Ethernet, the DSL-N55U gives you full Gigabit performance. Its WAN-to-LAN throughput performance is over 900 Mbps, which is more than 4.5 times that of software-based NAT Gigabit routers. This reduces the possibility of bottlenecks on fast internet connections.
Two CPUs for Fast and Stable Connections
The DSL-N55U offers dual CPU performance and flexibility. The wired and wireless network connection each have their own CPU - by separating wired and Wi-Fi networking into two compute modules with their own dedicated processor, the DSL-N55U C1 achieves maximum performance for both connection types with no compromises.
Add External Storage and Other Devices to your Network
Two USB ports make the DSL-N55U C1 suitable for file, multimedia and printer sharing, while ASUS AiDisk offers remote access and content streaming on a wide range of compatible devices.

Top Customer Reviews
I thought id give the asus a go. It shipped with the latest firmware. i loaded it again anyway just to be sure (twice, with the hard reset as recommended) Set up was a breeze. Checked my connection.... Boom! 4mb with a default setup. no tweaks at all! The range of the wifi is fantastic, easily beating the billion. I will attempt tweaks at some point soon, but im more than happy at the moment.
I've connected a usb flashdrive to my router and set up the media server with a click of a button. now i can stream videos straight from my router to my TV, ipad and iphone. it's awesome.
The only downside to this router is the documentation if you want to go anything further than set up the ADSL or wifi. It's not great and there's no where near as many forums covering this as the billion, but for £30 less and with the usb ports, 5ghz wifi faster adsl i know which i'd rather have. It's been rock solid so far. I know the original firmware wasnt great, so ignore the original reviews, its sorted now with the latest firmware. 5 star product without doubt!
The features are great but without how to instructions it was no good for me.
Definitely one for the computer savvy.
MUCH better wireless signal than the Netgears.
I won't repeat what other positive reviews have said but will add:
Power consumption is 9 watts. I turned off the 5 GHz as none of my devices use it and it dropped to 8 watts. I turn the wifi off 11pm tp 7am and that drops the power consumption to 7 watts. I've read that for maximum speed leave routers on 24/7 otherwise your exchange sees the line dropping and lowers your speed in an attempt to stabilise your line.
This Asus has powerful parental controls. You can set times of day for any given device to allow internet connection.
My router history
My first router was the Netgear DG834 - Lasted 3 years before dropping.I replaced that with a Netgear DG2200 that lasted 18 months before constant drops. I replaced that with another Netgear DG2200 under the 2 year warranty of the previous - Replacement was also faulty and dropped continuously.
So I bought an Asus as it had a 3 year warranty after having enough of Netgear
This router has a modern and up to date appearance, stylish and suitably high tech and will look well on any work desk or even in the living room.
The wizard based setup was easy and straightforward and for most users all they need to do is input their ISP user name and password to access the internet with no need to use the supplied CD. Many adsl routers such as the AVM Fritz! Box Fon 7390 Wireless 4 Port VDSL/ADSL2+ Router DECT VoIP Phone Adaper that I usually use myself now support internet access from a cable, external modem or another router. Not so this router which is limited to an adsl connection only. Although Asus claim a maximum speed of 600Mbps this is slightly disingenuous as this is in fact the combined speed of the 2.4 and 5Ghz network streams. Rival high end routers from Netgear and other now support a single band connection of 450Mbps or higher - although few network adapters yet can handle this. Perhaps I overlooked it but I could not see anyway of using this router as a repeater to another existing router network. As another review has already pointed out this device does not allow for MAC address spoofing - this is a way of fooling some ISPs that insist on their own specific routers being used by allowing the user to input a suitable MAC address into the router settings and which is then passed on to the ISP during the connection process.Read more ›
