The RT-N53 dual-band router is from the award-winning Black Diamond series of ASUS routers. The dual-band connectivity enables both 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless transmissions. 5GHz makes content streaming incredibly smooth, which is especially useful when watching videos through Web sites like hulu or other high-definition media sites. 2.4GHz offers compatibility with most devices, and both transmissions can run simultaneously to deliver essential compatibility with performance. Featuring an exclusive built-in 2 internal antenna, the RT-N53 features Ai Radar, for omnidirectional circular coverage as opposed to a limiting horizontal signal for optimal connectivity wherever the router is placed, especially useful for multi-level houses or buildings.

With multi user support up to five SSIDs, connect up to four wireless networks on 2.4GHz and one wireless network on 5GHz. Customize each user's bandwidth and access privileges for each network. The RT-N53 router also features robust parental controls for you to set time and Web site access for each SSID. Product setup is CD free and quick. The Graphical User Interface (GUI) to customize settings is intuitive for users at any level. Boasting a standalone wall-mountable design, the RT-N53 router has a unique lattice glossy style that suits any room or office with a modern appeal.

  • newegg Dual-band Connection for Lag-free Entertainment The RT-N53 doubles your wireless performance and bandwidth with simultaneous 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, with speeds up to 300Mbps concurrently. While basic internet applications like browsing or file downloading can occur in 2.4GHz, wireless HD content streaming takes place in the 5GHz band at the same time, so both achieve optimized speeds and you get to enjoy smooth, buffer-free HD content streaming.
  • newegg Optimal connections with two internal antennas The RT-N53 features two exclusive internal antennas with Ai Radar omnidirectional coverage which provides optimal connections wherever your device is placed.
  • newegg Multi User Support With multi user support up to five SSIDs, the RT-N53 can provide one wireless network on 5GHz and 4 wireless networks over the 2.4GHz band, which provides separated connection priorities and access rights. For example, High priority and both network (private and Internet) access are perfect for managers, while middle priority and private network work great for staff, and low priority and internet access only for friends and guests. Protect computers from unauthorized access, hacking and virus attacks.
  • newegg Plug-n-surf and Hassle-free Management ASUS QIS and EZ UI offer you an intuitive router setup without reading manuals. Open your browser, then the QIS wizard will guide you to quickly connect to the Internet, regardless of what OS you use. The intuitive user interface provides a graphical network map, making wireless setup, QoS and client management clear and simple.
  • newegg Clever Wall-mount design The clever wall-mount design allows you to mount it onto the wall providing great convenience for your cleanup (mounting kit sold separately).

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Router

Pros: Setting up was extremely easy, and everything connected to it without an issue. The 5/ghz is amazing, I've been putting through its paces, so far no complaints.

Cons: Really wish it had 10/100/1000 ports, but I knew that going in so no egg deducted.

Other Thoughts: It took a small amount of playing around to get my laptops and tablet to recognize the 5/ghz, but I spent no more than 5 minutes getting it there.

1 out of 5 eggsdd-wrt my eye

Pros: Good specs for a cheapy

Cons: Refurbished? How do you get a refurbed model with the SSID of "Virus Distribution Center" and changed password for the web interface. ASUS needs to re-evaluate their quality control.
Reset button is for recovery mode. to actually reset you have to power up holding the WPS button (ya that makes sense)
Flashed dd-wrt, appears to not support dual band on any builds for this model.
Jumped through hoops to install Tomato (shibby builds after release 104 are the only ones that are supported)

Other Thoughts: absurd for a 'refurb'

4 out of 5 eggsWorks great with design flaws

Pros: Good strong signal, multiple ssid for various network set ups. WIFI repeater works great and allows encrypted connection even when source wifi is not.

Cons: Can not use router features or multiple ssid settings when in repeater mode, requires router reset to log into router after setting to repeater mode. serious design flaw.
Required firmware update to get device to function correctly.

Other Thoughts: Device does what it should, and provides a good strong signal. Would be nice to use as repeater and still be able to run multiple ssid's for a second media server network.

2 out of 5 eggsNot working

Pros: When request a defective return, Newegg email you the return label.

Cons: Don't think they test the refurbish unit much.

1 out of 5 eggsDo not buy!

Pros: None

Cons: DOA. Purchased a refurbished RT-N53 router for 5GHz Band. The unit fails to start and is stuck in firmware recovery mode (power LED slowly flashing). When attempting to upload firmware it takes it, but then reboots and goes back to firmware recovery mode. Requested RMA, but this costs over $13, not worth. Newegg should have paid for the returns of defective units.
