There was a time when a wireless router did little more than, well, route. It took bits from the airwaves and put them on a wire, destined for the Internet or perhaps the local network. As the technology matured, product designers started adding things. At first, it was software like firewalls, quality of service controls, and port tunneling and forwarding controls. Then came the advanced things such as VPN and jffs-based file storage – sufficient for a small, static HTML site stored on a cordoned-off part of the router’s unused flash ROM. Then came the hardware changes, most relevant to this review being the advent of USB ports. This opened a whole new world of possibilities, generally USB Mass Storage devices and printers. Then Western Digital joined the fray. It added a hard drive to the router. Thus, we have the My Net N900 Central, a 450Mbps x2 high-end wireless router ready act not only as a shuffler of bits, but also as a storer of bits; a router and simple NAS all in one compact device.
Not all wireless routers are equal. Every wireless router can shuffle bits back and forth between the Internet, the local wired network, and the local wireless network. Some routers are faster than others, and that’s to be expected. However, there is another class of wireless router that offers more than the standard feature set. The ASUS RT-N66U Dual-band Wireless-N900 Gigabit Router is one such hot rod. Featuring among other things dual USB2 ports and 450 Mbps wireless transfers and the ability to create eight wireless networks, the RT-N66U is a great device for folks who want their always-on device to do more than just shuffle bits.

Last year we reviewed a couple TP-LINK products and were extremely impressed with them. TP-LINK’s latest portable router is the TL-WR700N 150Mbps Wireless N Mini Pocket Router. Its max wireless speed is rated a bit lower than standard routers, but its feature-set doesn’t suffer. The TL-WR700N supports multiple modes including AP, Repeater, Client, Bridge, and can function as a basic router. Has TP-LINK tried to pack too much into a small device? Or will they blow us away again? Check out the full review to find out.
