This review is from: ASUS RT-N56U Wireless Router Dual Band N600 Multimedia Ultra Slim Gigabit 802.11a/b/g/n support USB Storage, Print and Media Server (top performance review at smallnetbuilder.com)
Pros: Dual band router. Basic functionality seems to work. Seems to have pretty good range on both bands. Good value for a low priced dual band router.
Cons: GUI is disappointing. URL filtering is limited. Logging is weak. Does not log URL blocks, only port blocks. Log is hard to read. Cannot get it to send logs to SNMP server. Cannot get IPv6 to work reliably, and not sure I would trust it if I did. Ability to block ports and services in firewall is weak. Does not support common alternate firmware. Documentation is very poor, both in the manual and online.
Other Thoughts: While the price is good, I would take a pass on this one unless you want just a basic router.
Search around on the web to find some tips and tricks about configuring it. Be sure to upgrade to the latest firmware. Apparently a lot of bugs have been fixed in the latest release.
