Final Thoughts

I really like the WL-500W, in fact, I will probably replace my WHR-HP-G54 with it, provided DD-WRT supports it in a future release, as the ASUS stock firmware does not provide the amount of control I need. That, and it's really ugly. This router is certainly a boon to those looking for a file and print server on a budget. ThinkComputers gives the ASUS WL-500W a 9 out of 10 score.

- Print server!
- File server!
- Aesthetically pleasing
- Potential hackability

- Help throughout router control panel sparse
- Wireless link not as powerful/stable as it probably should be
- The color scheme of the control panel looks like something from a funky HGTV special
