The Black Diamond Series RT-N53 router brings striking
design together with impressive simultaneous dual-band performance - the
300 + 300Mbps speed combines the usability of the 2.4GHz band with the
stability of the 5GHz band. Delivering fast connection speeds in both
wired and wireless connection, the RT-N53 is ideal for large home
environments to enjoy seamless HD video streaming, online gaming and
internet surfing all at the same time. The straightforward QIS (Quick
Internet Setup) web-based wizard ensures you can get to the Internet
without hassle, regardless of operating system. The unique EZ QoS
(Quality of Service) can easily allocate bandwidth according to their
individual needs by simply clicking on the buttons. Multiple SSID
connections helps you create 3 more separate and limitable access
networks for different roles.
Dual-band for Lag-free
Double your wireless performance and bandwidth with simultaneous
2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, with speeds up to 300Mbps concurrently.
While basic internet applications like browsing or file
downloading can occur in 2.4GHz, wireless HD content streaming
takes place in the 5GHz band at the same time, so both achieve
optimized speeds and you get to enjoy smooth, buffer-free HD
Plug-n-surf and Hassle-free
ASUS QIS and EZ UI offer you an intuitive
router setup without reading manuals. Open your browser, then
the QIS wizard will guide you to quickly connect to the
Internet, regardless of what OS you use. The intuitive user
interface provides a graphical network map, making wireless
setup, QoS and client management clear and simple.
4-Network-in-1: Provide Extra
The RT-N53 can provide 4 wireless networks over the 2.4GHz band,
which provides separated connection priorities and access
rights. For example, High priority and both network (private and
Internet) access are perfect for managers, while middle priority
and private network work great for staff, and low priority and
internet access only for friends and guests. Protect computers
from unauthorized access, hacking and virus attacks.
Universal Repeater - Extend your
signal in the simplest way
With ASUS Universal repeater support, you can use the RT-N53 way
to repeat your wireless signal to far away locations from the
central access point. Scan for the Wi-Fi signal and link to the
SSID you want to repeat.
*Please take note that all repeaters, including this Universal
Wireless Repeater mode, will sacrifice half of the bandwidth
available from the primary router for clients wirelessly
connected to the repeater. Currently, the RT-N53 only supports
the 2.4GHz repeater setting.

so used to the linksys routers that it shard to find my way around but overall the interface is so much nicer. The router itself is not the prettiest girl at the dance but still doesnt look cheap. its very small and seems well built. I wouldnt say as much about the stand which i was afraid i would break when trying to put them together.
setup was very easy, speeds are good. i didnt do any specific tests but did not notice a better connection in my house. the xbox in the livingroom and our cellphones seems to connect faster though. Sadly though the modem isnt supported by many VPN such as Unblock.us which i was already using. still trying to find an alternative thats gonna work.
Hard to find a dual band router with multiple SSID support but it comes in the form of multiple guest network. And the firmware is still buggy (Dec 2013). Interface is pretty nice and provide with good info.
I have been very disappointed with this router. It drops the wi-fi signal every 2-4 days, randomly, and requires a reset. I have tried multiple ways to fix the problem, and none have worked as a permanent solution. After some looking online, it appears I am not the only one with this problem. I have tested my devices (phone, laptop) on my old, ancient router, as well as at work and friends houses, and both work fine. It is very clearly the router.
I was particularly disappointed because I am a fan of Asus and have never had a problem with any of their products.
I am used to buying Asus routers in the past that have performed well for the given price. This model has proved to be nothing but a problem from the start. Ordered about 3 of them and only 1 is working satisfactory. The other 2 will take configuration and seem to work fine, but as soon you power cycle the unit it goes into firmware restore mode and will not come back to life until the firmware file is uploaded.
Works perfect on all my device. Ethernet port is fast. Start my lap top and connect instantly. Start my BoxeeBox and catch it instantly, my old router was not ableto see my Boxee. The rebate from Asus is a Amex gift card. So don't buy it for the manufacturer rebate.
