Package and Contents

 

The RT-N16 comes in a box that is fairly clean. ASUS has kept the clutter down to a minimum. You do get a nice image of the product on the front along with some big claims.

Some of the claims are interesting and also give us some pause. It looks like ASUS has moved away from the low power processors for their networking gear. They are also now offering support for the NTFS file system. This is an excellent move as it opens up a lot of room with external HDDs.

The back of the box has a much more informative style. ASUS is showing you all of the things that you can do with the RT-N16. They also go into a brief explanation of the EZQoS system. We will also talk about this a little later in the review.

Inside the box we find all of the things you absolutely need to get going and one that is just nice to have. The VIP Member warranty registration is a nice little item, although it is not much more than a registration for an e-mail listing. With it you do get notifications when there is a new firmware available etc.

 

One thing we wish we would find in all wireless router boxes is more than one Cat5 cable; but that is probably wishful thinking.
