To many, ASUS is one of the leaders in the router market with several marquee products already under their belts. At CES 2012, the upcoming RT-N66U dual-band Gigabit Wireless Router and the ASUS EA-N66 dual-band wireless Ethernet adapter were both shown off.
RT-N66U dual-band Gigabit Wireless Router
The RT-N66U dual-band gigabit wireless router delivers incredible network speeds and coverage for the best wireless experience. It is effectively two routers in one, delivering combined wireless speeds of up to 900Mbps through double 450Mbps bands operating separately at 2.4GHz and 5GHz. The RT-N66U is the ideal networking solution optimized for demanding tasks like multiplayer gaming, HD video streaming, and file sharing.
The RT-N66U is the first router to implement the new advanced ASUS user interface. Basic Wi-Fi settings are pre-configured out of the box and once connected to a wireless network, the user is automatically directed to a web-based setup page. The ASUS dashboard lets users monitor and adjust network settings easily; while a download manager allows for file downloads with the PC off, along with remote management of mobile devices like tablets and smartphones.
ASUS EA-N66 dual-band wireless Ethernet adapter
The ASUS EA-N66 is a dual-band wireless Ethernet adapter that delivers selectable 450Mbps bands at both 2.4GHz and 5GHz. Featuring a patented orthogonal antenna design that optimizes wireless signal coverage, the EA-N66 also acts as a 3-in-1 home networking solution with its Ethernet adapter, repeater and access point modes. When paired with the RT-N66U, the EA-N66 gives gamers incredible network speeds and coverage for multiplayer gaming sessions.
