    Detailed Description
    (Manufacturer # RT-N56U )

    World's Fastest Router

    The RT-N56U is rated highly by SmallNetBuilder.com, the world's trusted media review website for networking devices. SmallNetBuilder tested the RT-N56U against its competitors, and it came out tops in 5GHz upload/download throughput. In light of this, SmallNetBuilder concluded the RT-N56U was one of the best performance Gigabit and dual-band Wireless routers in the market.


    The first and only router to receive the CNET Editor's Choice Award

    The ASUS RT-N56U was presented with the internationally recognized iF 2010 award for its exquisite design. In addition to this, the outstanding performance of RT-N56U has also won it more than 80 distinguished accolades, including the CNET Editor's Choice 2011 award, making it the first ever router to win this coveted title.

    NVIDIA GameStream Ready

    Your router is about to have a lot more fun. That's because it can now stream all your favorite PC games to the NVIDIA® SHIELD™ portable to play anywhere in the house using fast, ultra-reliable NVIDIA GameStream™ technology. ASUS routers deliver lag-free, high-performance game streaming from GeForce® GTX™=powered PCs or NVIDIA GRID™ cloud gaming systems.

    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.

    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.

    The one place for all your data - ASUS AiCloud

    ASUS AiCloud is a smart and easy mobile application that brings your ASUS cloud experience to iOS and Android. Access, stream, sync, and share all your files on the go from both public and private cloud storage services.

    Powerful functions, easiest management

    With the ASUSWRT Dashboard UI, setup, monitor, and control network applications all in one intuitive area. The whole new dashboard interface lets you manage all clients and settings on a single graphical interface and provides 1-click updates.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!
