ASUS must’ve recently hired a pro designer, their latest devices have been superbly attractive. This trend has continued with the RT-N56U Dual-band Gigabit Wireless N Router. Hands down, it is the best looking piece of networking equipment ever created. After the initial attraction subsides and you start to trust the RT-N56U with your day to day networking activities, you’ll find that it isn’t just a good looking device, it also has stable and consistent performance. The RT-N56U packs the speed, features and scalability to fit into any home or small office network. Check out the full review for all of the gritty details.
The TRENDnet TEW-691GR 450Mbps Wireless N Gigabit Router is a sleek looking router with a long name and potentially big performance. We’ll examine the specs, packaging, features, interface and of course performance, to determine if the TEW-691GR can survive in your personal network.
As the price of home networking equipment falls, manufacturers are looking to include features which separate their product from the rest of the pack. Many routers include at least one USB port these days because of this. This USB port is generally used for either a printer or some kind of storage device, such as an external hard drive or flash drive. The ASUS RT-N13U is one such device. It unifies 802.11n wireless with a 10/100 switch and a lone USB port, which ASUS thinks your all-in-one printer would love. ThinkComputers reviews the ASUS RT-N13U wireless router.
Gamers like three things in their devices: functionality, speed, and bling. The D-Link DGL-4500 Xtreme N Gaming Router has all three. This excellently assembled and configured wireless networking unit offers the configurability a power user would expect from a high end router, the speed of gigabit Ethernet on the LAN and 802.11N on the WLAN, and the bling of a statistics-heavy LCD on the top of the unit.

ASUS is making a name for itself these days. Everyone knows about the ultrapopular EeePC netbooks, and ASUS has always been a top motherboard, video card, and sound card manufacturer. Let us not forget ASUS’s networking division and its excellent, inexpensive wireless routers. Our January 2007 review of the WL-500W was featured on the front page of Digg, and our March 2008 review of the WL-520GU had a lot of traffic, as well. ASUS submitted for review the RT-N15, a 300 Mbps 802.11n-capable unit featuring gigabit Ethernet, as well as green ports for power efficiency. ThinkComputers has the review.
Linksys’s WRT54G is a staple in the wireless router market. The WRT150N is the 802.11n successor to that well-known 802.11g router. In fact, the WRT150N is virtually the same as later revisions of the WRT54G, except with the addition of draft 802.11n compatibility, boosting wireless speeds up to 108 Mbps. Let’s see what this Wireless N Router can do as we check it out in this review.
