Asus RT-N53: 31 facts and highlights

1. WiFi speed

A higher maximum Wi-Fi speed results in better performance. This is measured in megabytes per second.

2. Has 802.11n WiFi connection

802.11n is a wireless standard released in 2009. It has faster transfer rates and improved security compared to its predecessors - a, b and g.

3. external antennas

More antennas result in increased signal strength. External antennas can be repositioned in order to improve the signal, and replaced with a longer antenna if needed.

4. Has automatic IP

Automatic IP allows a local area network (LAN) computer to give itself a unique IP address when Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is unavailable to do so.

9. USB ports

With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.

10. Has dual band technology

Dual band devices can transmit data quickly on the newest 5GHz band, using recent standards (eg. 802.11n, 802.11ac) They can also use the older 2.4GHz band if needed.

16. height

17. internal antennas

More antennas result in increased signal strength. Devices with internal antennas often take up less space.

18. Has SPI intrusion protection

All incoming traffic will be blocked except for those types selected in the Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) section. This helps to protect your network from unwanted traffic.

19. Has a static IP address

Static IP addresses remain consistent on each connection. This means the IP address can be used to allow remote access / configuration. Most home devices have a dynamic IP address (ie. it changes), whereas larger companies usually use a static IP address.

24. WAN ports

A WAN (Wider Area Network) port is most commonly used to connect the router to the Internet. It can also be used to connect to an external private network.

25. warranty period

When covered under the manufacturer’s warranty it is possible to get a replacement in the case of a malfunction.
