Amazing products like the “Black Diamond” RT-N56U really put them on the map and set the stage for an all-out battle for wireless router supremacy.
Asus has always played with marketing names, with products like the P5K3 Premium “Black Pearl”, the first motherboard to incorporate high end DDR3 memory on the mainboard itself, the aforementioned “Black Diamond” Wireless Router and todays featured product is no different the Asus “Dark Knight” Dual Band N900 Wireless Router or the RT-N66u.
For those of you that love playing with 3rd party firmware options such as DDWRT or Tomato. Asus has packed the N66u with a full complement of Broadcom ICs that will surely have you drooling, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves here.
