The Router

The ASUS RT-N13U is, well, it is different. I am not sure what it is, but it does not look "high-performance". It has an almost cheap look and feel to it. I am not saying it is not a good product; it just does not look like one.

Taking a quick look at the front, we find the usual lights to indicate power, WAN, WLAN, and LAN connections. There is also a small button that allows you to start WPS (wireless protected setup).

I think now I see what makes it seem "cheap". Looking at the front closely, it looks like the silver label is a slip of cardboard or paper under a plastic cover. Upon removing the plastic window, I found it is a metallic sticker.

Flipping around to the back, we find the usual four 10/100 Ethernet Ports, a single 10/100 WAN port and a slight addition. ASUS have put in a single USB 2.0 port. This port is for use with the Print Server and AI Disk Functions that we will cover later.

Looking at the bottom, we found something quite interesting. There is a small switch that allows you to hard set the operation mode for the RT-N13U. The switch gives you options for Router, Repeater and AP (Access Point).

 

The RT-N13U, as we mentioned does come with a ton of features, though. The list is so long that I just linked it from the ASUS website and dropped it in here for you to take a look at. We will cover many of these as we push onward.
