Asus RT-N11 EZ Wireless Router



Setting up the Asus RT-N11 was a doddle. Simply plug the relevent cables in and press the EZ-Setup button along with the EZ setup tab on the screen and follow the on screen instructions :
setup1 setup 2
setup 4 setup 4
That is the easiest way to set the router up, but obviously there are much more detailed configurations available when you enter the router's address (default Here are a few snaps of the router's configuration utility:
Nothing too special here, although an interesting feature is the ability to rotate the network keys, thereby increasing the level of security.
Wireless VIP Multi SSID

Perhaps the most distinguishing feature of the RT-N11 is its ability to set up separate SSID's and allocate bandwidth to each individual network (see VIP on previous page). I was surprised how easy this process was, and in no time at all I was able to set up a 2nd PC as a download PC with my 3rd PC as a gaming PC, each with its own network and bandwidth allocation. A fine idea from Asus and definitely the major selling point of the RT-N11.
setup 6 DHCP server
The WAN/LAN configuration and setup section is pretty much a standard affair, offering similar settings as most other routers in this class. One of the attractions of the RT-N11 is that it is so easy to set up, yet can be as complex as you require. A beginner shouldn't have too much to worry about, yet the router offers a massive array of settings to get the optimum performance/security from the router.
Port forwarding Firewall
Port forwarding was a cinch to set up, as was the firewall. While the firewall is nothing extraordinary, it is more than adequate and equal to other hardware firewalls in this sector, offering ample protection from the hackers out there.

Glad you liked it. Must say it was perhaps the most difficult review I've written yet as there is only so much you can say about a router to make it an interesting read lol.Quote

if it had 100/1000 ethernet, that review would have had me buying one right now.

It is rare to get such a fine review of routers, especially one so feature packed as this.

I'm currently struggling to find a router with gigabit ethernet, and (damn) will probs have to invest in a 100/1000 switch (stupid NAS).Quote

Was just gonna echo what cyber said.

Am keeping an eye out for the Linksys n- `something` with gig switches in it, but it appeared in the states only to disappear just as quickly. >.<

Definately look out for what -VK- said, cos apart from that, the router looks great.Quote
