Asus RT-N16 Review

Wireless Gigabit Router having Powerful CPU, ASUS AiCloud service, Ultra-fastand convenient downloads, and Comprehensive applications with USB2.0 port.

The RT-N16 Multi-Functional Gigabit Wireless N Router with Storage space, Printer, & Press Server from Asus is really a versatile router that may connect a number of your wireless gadgets while also providing you advanced server functions.

With three exterior antennae and a robust CPU, this router can transfer information at a max price of 300 Mbps for wireless-N devices and may also hook up to devices that are appropriate for the older 802.11b and 802.11g standards. Furthermore, it functions four Ethernet 10/100/1000 ports, so that you can set up quick wired connections with Ethernet-enabled devices.


The RT-N16 measures 216 x 162 x 41mm and weighs 470g – although I doubt the weight of a router has ever put anyone off purchasing one. At the device’s back are its energy input, a couple of USB ports, an Ethernet slot for starting up the RT-N16 to your ADSL or wire modem, four Ethernet ports for discussing that reference to the sleep of your house, and last, however, not minimum, three antennae, for spreading the router’s Wi-Fi about. That cellular arrives, incidentally, in 802.11b, 802.11g, and 802.11n (draft) flavors.

Both USB ports should prove useful when combined with RT-N16’s capability to share files on an external generate over its network ports. That gets particularly helpful when used in combination with the built-in Enhanced Download Grasp. Despite its somewhat silly title, this is really very useful since it allows the router to download documents over ‘regular’ HTTP, FTP, or – perhaps almost all usefully – BitTorrent and conserve them to a connected USB storage space device.

The simple interface of the RT-N16 wireless router might defer several users that think it is patronizing but they’re really missing out. All the features you’re more likely to want, and much more, are an easy task to control, and when you have to reach them, more complex options aren’t difficult to find. Items such as this should ‘just function’ and that’s what the RT-N16 does.
