Gigabit Internet Surfing with Hardware NAT
NAT is done through its hardware accelerator engine. This gives the RT-N56U two to five times higher WAN to LAN throughput compared to traditional software based routers.
Powerful Online Multitasking at up to 300,000 Data Sessions
Support for a massive data pipeline of up to 300,000 data sessions means the RT-N56U has around 20 times the networking capacity of other high session routers, so multiple data transfer jobs do not slow down even during heavy load. This means that peer-to-peer applications such as BitTorrent could establish more peer sessions without causing the router to seize up or slow down.
Ai Radar Optimized and Reliable Wireless Coverage
This unique and efficient design drastically increases wireless signal coverage and quality without increasing power consumption. It intelligently adapts beam patterns to local conditions to enable higher-gain directional signal emulation. Ai Radar shapes signals to offer the strongest possible output, transforming what may be a weak omnidirectional signal to a stronger unidirectional one, improving throughput at same time.
Multi-Function Twin USB Ports
The two USB ports allow the router offer:
- Multi Function Printer Server
- FTP Server
- BitTorrent, HTTP & FTP Client
- uPnP and DLNA Media Server
- 3G Modem / Mobile Router
