The name of this router is a diamond wireless router. So far it has exceeded my expectations and is highly recommended. This is a simple plug and play device that allowed me to connect to the Internet with the minimum of set up.

This is a router that I purchased from Amazon.co.uk for £112. In the past 2 months of usage I have to say that this wireless router is a good one. This wireless router is made by Asus who are specialize in routers, laptops and other electronic items. I can connect my laptop,PS3 and smartphone using this wirless router. Before I purchased this router I did some research in comparing other wireless routers and having read that this is product is recommended from expert reviews on the techradar website this made my decision to buy more easier. I would have ended up buying an equally known brand but with less performance.

My wireless laptop now has better network link speeds and was simple and straightforward to set up. I am also pleased with the regular and stable connection and broadband speed. I am now able to surf the Internet faster and have a better reception and better hardware than my previous Belkin wireless router.

The network link speed on my laptop shows at 300 mbps on the 2.4ghz setting and even better 450mpbs on the 5GHZ module.

The key feature of this wirless router is that you can choose to connect your laptop or wireless device on either the 2.4GHZ or 5GHZ frequency. Regarding the key performance and our households overall satisfaction of being connected wireless with the Asus RT-N5U. this product is almost excellent.


The design of the router is a big move away from the old and usual boring routers in that the design is vertical and held on a thin stand. This router has a modern design and is not box shaped at all. This router works well in short and medium distances as I have been able to connect with a good if not excellent signal strength from my bedroom, but as yet I have been unable to test the effectiveness from my garden.
The set up was simple and straightforward as the router auto-detected the settings and I was quickly able to connect wirelessly to the Internet.

Conclusion better looking design and better performing than my previous wireless router (easily).
