Asus Wireless Networking: USB-N53 and EA-N66 Review
Article Publish Date:
Anyone who has purchased the N56u or the N66u will almost certainly recognize the design of the USB-N53 Dual Band N600 Wireless Adaptor – both having the same aesthetically pleasing exterior. On a more technical front the N53 utilizes two built-in antennae and operates on both the 2.4 and 5 GHz band, giving it 300MB/s capability. The ASUS USB-N53 is bundled with an adjustable USB cable that allows for movement with the adapter in more restricted places. There is also the added option of using the N53 as a software AP to share internet across multiple PCs- and maybe an entire dorm room.
It is just human nature – and more recently modern nature – for us to want wireless access wherever we go. With the launch of the EA-N66 from Asus, we are promised just that.
The small but powerful space ship Asus calls the EA-N66u – not to be confused with the RT- N66u – is an all in one device that has the ability to function as a Wireless Ethernet Adaptor, Access Point and Wireless Repeater. High-speed access is enhanced by the single Gigabit Ethernet port while the integrated orthogonal antenna creates a unique yet functional design.
All of these products along with our recently reviewed RT-N66u N900 Router gives us a trio of Asus latest networking products. So if you are in the market for a networking overhaul read on to see if these products are for you.
