ASUS DSL-N55U Review
The intention of the ASUS DSL-N55U is to be useful with ADSL and ADSL2+ services. The router also has an ADSL modem. The router has plenty of features and yet it comes at an astonishingly reasonable price.
Within the range of features that the device provides there are elements like dual-band and concurrent Wi-Fi. Apart from that you get a power switch on the rear; and three, high-gain antennae that protrude towards the rear end. Some other features that you will find in the ASUS DSL-N55U router include Four Gigabit Ethernet ports, Three removable wireless antenna, Two USB sockets, Dual band 2.4GHz and 5GHz a/b/g/n wireless networks, Support for IPv6, Quality of Service controls, Media server with support for DLNA, iTunes, FTP, HTTP and USB Printer sharing ports.
Once you are connected to the DSL-N55U's web UI, you will realize that the entire process is extremely user-friendly. The very first page displays once you connect the router to the web's User Interface. The device allows for an average file transfer rate of 13.6MB/sec over 2.4GHz, and 16.5MB/sec over 5GHz. Even at a long range one can experience a speed of an impressive 6.3MB/sec over 2.4GHz. An Operating Humidity of 5%-95% and a temperature of -10DegC - 50DegC define the Operating Conditions of the ASUS DSL-N55U.
It is also recommended that you set up a strong security key on the device for its security. However, the interface of the router allows you to skip the security setting step. Once the security setup is configured, you are directed to a page that shows you the summary of your configuration settings saved. This ASUS device is as good with the USB disk as it is with wireless technology. The router supports the IPv6 built in. Talking about the VPN server, it makes it simpler for you to configure a username and password, which enables someone with a PPTP VPN client to connect to your home network across the internet.
The router allows you to pick from ADSL (G.DMT), ADSL2 and ADSL2+. The last option has an added advantage in case your telephone line often gives trouble. Even though the ASUS DSL-N55U is not the cheapest of modems/routers available, it categorizes as a good purchase because of the variety of features that it offers. The installation is really simple and easy. You can easily find the default security details placed strategically and clearly on the label under the router. PPPoE, PPPoA, MER, Bridge and IPoA are the options that the router gives for the authentication of the protocol. The drawback is that it is not easy to enable the IPv6 on the WAN interface. The ASUS DSL-N55U boasts of a two USB ports that allow you to attach a number of USB storage devices to the router.
