ASUS WL-500g Premium V2 Multi-Function Wireless Router




Wireless networking has been a standard in homes and home offices for years now. As more people move from the desktop to the laptop we will see an even bigger increase in the need for fast wireless to handle our data. The evolving of the netbook has also ignited this frenzy. But with more and more people working, un-tethered files and printer sharing becomes an increasing problem.


Enter the ASUS WL-500g Premium V2; this b and g specification wireless router has speeds of up to 54Mbps while combining the features of a NAS and wireless print server. Added on top of these features is a profile based QoS system (Quality of Service) that lets you easily prioritize the traffic on your network for the best performance. Additional FTP and Samba support round out the package.


The box that the WL-500g Premium V2 ships in is a little on the plain and utilitarian side, but it does provide you with good information on the features and specifications. There is little doubt about what you can expect to get after reading the box. You can currently pick up the ASUS WL-500g Premium V2 from Newegg at 89.99 .


So let's dive in and see if the WL-500g Premium V2 can be the answer to our wireless sharing needs.
