ASUS RT-N66U Dual-Band Wireless-N900 Gigabit Router Review

Today we check out the ASUS RT-N66U Dark Knight N900 Gigabit Router that seems to have every feature known to the home networking enthusiast. Multiple SSIDs, USB ports for home NAS creation, even a function that allows you to create your own cloud storage for file access anywhere with an internet connection. All of this (and more) from a company, ASUS, known for their motherboards and video cards, not routers. Will ASUS's Dark Knight rise and beat down the competition? Read on to find out!

ASUS has assembled a total package that puts almost everything on the market to shame. Starting with a very strong transmission signal and wireless coverage, to the clean and logical GUI, the RT-N66U has every feature you could hope for in a router package. It helps that the router has a cool look without a very large footprint that takes up most of the space on your desk.

Well, it's a good overview and speed test, but I'm very sorry that you didn't exercise the other features that could make me pay that high price. In particular the NAS connections. This is a very important capability that could save $$$ over other solutions at least for a home setup. At the least I'd want to know: what does it need beyond formatted external drives? What setup software comes with the router? How are the time and date stamps on files handled? Maybe you can revisit this.

Sorry that we couldn't go over each feature in depth on the router. You bring up very good points and unfortunately, we have been concentrating lately on User Interface, and the router's wifi speed performance. Your point on functionality is not taken lightly, however, and if we get another ASUS router in (hint, hint) we will concentrate on other hardware features and less on the GUI since they should be the same.

Thanks for the feedback. Hopefully, you will stick around for upcoming reviews!
