5 out of 5 eggsWireFULL

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

Pros: For starters, the router network map interface is very clean and easy to use, I could see a basic user being able to even go in and modify anything needed.
Great connectivity, no drops when I use the Wi-Fi on my laptop and phone. I also am able to maintain my 65 Mbps connection from 15 yards away. I have up to 7 devices connected to this router at any given time, and the RT-N56U still performs max bandwidth.
Very slim design which helps keep space open, very modern and stylish look as well.
The price of this is very reasonable as well, ASUS out did themselves on this one.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsASUS RT-N56U

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

Pros: Dependable, Have owned and used this router 4 years and it hasn't had any problems . Great coverage, 2,400 sq ft home and even have coverage out in the barn.

Cons: Runs a little warm but hasn't caused any issues in 4 years of service

Other Thoughts: ASUS generally makes a pretty good product and hopefully you will never need to contact their support, because ASUS support is pretty much non-existent

2 out of 5 eggsPoor quality

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

Pros: Nice intuitive interface. Looks great! Had mostly great reviews from many sites. Newegg had it delivered to my door quickly.

Cons: Completely died after 2 weeks. No faster than my old reliable Linksys WRT54GL. So light that the cables decided how it was aligned. Tiny power cable and plug.

Other Thoughts: I shouldn't be responsibility to pay return shipping of $20 on an $80 router that failed. That is just plain poor business practices.

2 out of 5 eggsDon't recommend

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

Pros: When it works it is absolutely great. I had great download speeds and my online gaming had no lag. It also looks awesome and doesn't overheat like other routers I had

Cons: I haven't used this router in over two years. for almost six months I went through the misery of having to restart it at least once an hour. I had the worst lag while gaming and caused me to constantly become disconnected while playing online or watching Netflix.

I tried and tried to like this router and I simply couldn't. I tried flashing a bunch of different firmware upgrades and downgraded several times, but it never worked. I only gave it two eggs because it looks awesome and the range was great in my house.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Router

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

Pros: The router is extremely easy to set up. Software to install items like printers is available through the router's setup. It literally took 60 seconds to set up my printer. Gigabit LAN and WAN is very nice to have, and the signal strength is very good.

Cons: I think it's mainly an issue with my house, but the signal strength drops a bit in one area of my house. I used a wifi signal strength meter and noticed there was a drastic drop on the other side of a load bearing wall. This makes sense since the wall is extremely thick. So this isn't really much of a con on the routers part. Just an item to note

Other Thoughts: Easy setup, looks nice, works well. All around a great router.

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

Pros: Excellent router, and looks awesome to boot!
Set up was a breeze, and it doesn't need to be restarted constantly for my PS3 to be able to connect like my old Linksys did.

Cons: None so far.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Router!

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

Pros: easy setup, fast speed, priority browsing, network printer, stylish

Cons: lots of settings

Other Thoughts: I bought this as my first router in college knowing that I want speed for gaming and internet research/streaming. I am not disappointed with this router. It was a super easy setup, but I never changed any of the options. There are, to me, endless settings that allow you to do a lot are lower end router wouldn't let you do. My friends come over all the time to use my internet because of the speed. I would buy this again and highly recommend it!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat router after the firmware update

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

Pros: I got this router back in 2013, and I HATED it and put it in a drawer. After my airport extreme died I broke this baby out and updated the firmware. It was like night and day! The old UI was pitiful and the rout was completely unstable. After the update it is amazing. Not sure what firmware it ships with now, but keep it up to date!

Cons: No AC, but it is from 2013...

1 out of 5 eggsASUS NEVER AGAIN

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

Pros: none that I can think they send rma fast but to the wrong address
so I have nothing yet.

Cons: The worst equipment I ever have and the service from asus I prefer not mention because is going to be a bad word.
Purchase 12-3-15 returned 2-6-15 destroy my all network

Other Thoughts: buy the insurance from neweeg in order no to deal with asus in case you like asus anyway

2 out of 5 eggsHas begun flipping out

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

Pros: Easy to set up; achieved 200 Gb with both connected computers; wireless seems OK

Cons: After two weeks, has flipped out and required reboot twice, two days apart. All five blue lights are on, but neither wired nor wireless devices can connect. When attempting to reach the router via browser, I get the message "Settings have been updated. Web page will now refresh. Changes have been made to
the IP address or port number". So far, a power cycle has restored normal functioning after it flips out like this. The firmware upgrade utility says I have the latest firmware.

Other Thoughts: Will contact Asus support this week.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,
