Product Description:

ASUS RT-N56U Dual-Band Wireless N600 Gigabit Router

ASUS RT-N56U is rated as not only the world's fastest router, but this incredible technology is housed within an award winning and stylish design. The RT-N56U comes equipped with dual-band technology that simultaneously allows both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, with data speeds of up to 300Mbps concurrently.

With Network Address Translation (NAT), the RT-N56U is a one-of-a-kind router which delivers up to 1000Mbps true gigabit throughput that is up to five times faster than conventional gigabit routers. The RT-N56U combines its wireless technology with a massive data pipeline capable of up to 300,000 data concurrent sessions, thus multiple data transfers to many users are a breeze. In all, the ASUS RT-N56U is one highly advanced router with both exquisite design and the best performance available.


Dual-band for Lag-free Entertainment
Double your wireless performance and bandwidth with simultaneous 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands speed 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 enjoy smooth, buffer-free HD content streaming.

Gigabit Internet Surfing with Hardware NAT
Equipped with a capable hardware NAT acceleration engine and built-in Gigabit Ethernet, it gives you full Gigabit internet performance, making its WAN to LAN throughput up to 2-5 times that of traditional software-based NAT Gigabit routers.

Plug-n-surf and Hassle-free Management
ASUS EZ UI offers you an intuitive router setup without read manuals. What's more, you can enjoy simultaneous printing and scanning by connecting an All-in-one printer to the router via the USB port. Also connect external hard disks to enjoy instant file sharing with family and friends! EZ Quality of Service (EZQoS) Bandwidth Management also gives users a simple way to optimize Internet speeds for gaming, browsing, file sharing, and VoIP/ media streaming. With the EZQoS, all users need to do is just click on the image they want to set and it will adjust instantly.

Powerful Online Multitasking at up to 300,000 Data Sessions
Support for a massive data pipeline of up to 300,000 data sessions means the RT-N56U has around 20 times the networking capacity of other high session routers, so multiple data transfer jobs don't slow down even during heavy load.

Ai Radar Optimized and Reliable Wireless Coverage
Five internal antennas built inside of the RT-N56U are tasked to provide the best stable wireless signal to users. ASUS Ai Radar‘s unique design increases wireless signal coverage and quality without consuming additional power. This technology simply adapts beam patterns to local conditions to enable higher-gain directional signal emulation. Ai Radar shapes signals to offer the strongest possible output, transforming what may be a weak omnidirectional signal to a stronger unidirectional one, improving throughput at same time.

Wireless N - Extreme Wireless Speed
The ASUS RT-N56U complies with the IEEE 802.11n wireless standard. Create home or office wireless networks with up to 18x the speed and 6x the range of conventional 802.11g networks. Enjoy bandwidth intensive HD movie and music streaming, VoIP calls, online gaming and more, smoothly and lag-free without the worry of data loss over large areas.

Multi-Function Twin USB Ports
With effortless connectivity to a range of devices and FTP, SAMBA, UPnP AV server and DLNA standard compatible all supported, sharing and networking become easier than ever. Plus, the RT-N56U can continue downloading FTTP, FTP and BitTorrent file to the USB disk all day even when your PC is turned off. Additionally, the twin USB ports allow the router to offer printer and file server functions, so you enjoy simultaneous wireless printing, scanning and file sharing via the comfort of standardized USB!
