Package and Contents

When you look at the packaging of the RT-N56U you will know right away that this product is a little different than the rest. You can see the difference in design along with the different packaging philosophy.

All of the badges are located along the right side of the box with the majority being black and white unlike many that go for multi-colored menagerie. The background is a simple white which makes the image of the RT-N56U stand out even better.

The back of the box is a little more informative and has several diagrams to show why the features available on the RT-N56U are better.

The fare in the box is light; you do get a power cord, a flat Cat 5 cable (a very nice touch) and a stand. One item that I wish would show up in more home networking products is a second Cat 5 cable.

With the RT-N56U there is one glaring item that I wish ASUS would have included. Given the flat design of the RT-N56U, there should have been a wall mount for this. When I showed the RT-N56U to a few people all of them asked if it could be wall mounted.
