ASUS RT-N53 Review

The Asus RT-N53 Wireless Router offers something beyond productive through various functions it can provide. It has a very nice versatility feature with how it can both work wirelessly and even while wired or connected to another device. So basically what it does is allow people to go boundless when it comes to the High Definition video streaming capability, surfing the internet, gaming online, downloading various apps, and so much more.


If you want more, you will love how there is the direct Quick Internet Setup or the QIS which provides better internet connectivity without any hassle at all. Physically, the Asus RT-N53 also has a pretty attractive design that matches its function pretty fantastically. What’s even more interesting is that it actually is pretty easy to setup.


On the bad side, you might find it kind of inconvenient that the router tends to shut off automatically and what you need to do is constantly restart it as it happened. This may not be good for the router being instantaneously turned on and off but if it will make the router work again then it’s not such a bad idea. It’s good to know that this router allows you to also connect a lot of devices altogether even if they do not have the same brand or things like that. In fact, the number of devices you get to connect to it has a minimum of 15-16 devices. But just do note that the speed of the performance still has an effect on how many are connected to it.


Navigating it to function as a wireless hotspot or a true router is very easy as you get to do it in the quickest way possible. All of these are possible through the use of the integrated modes which come in various settings or preferences. There is quite a trick on how to make the already fast speed much better through the help of rebooting the router right after you get to set it up. This has an odd way of making the performance of the router much better than it actually is. But then this is only if you want to improve the quality of its performance or if you have a lot of devices connected to it and is noticing that the speed has already been decreased due to it.


The Asus RT-N53 lets you choose if the security you are going to choose is the one that offers a higher security but a lesser speed or the one that has the faster speed but gives lesser security. The choice is yours. When actually getting it installed, you might find that it is quite difficult to get it to function fully. In fact, if you could afford it, you might as well ask a technician and other expert’s help to manipulate it and save you from all the hassle and bustle.


Overall, the Asus RT-N53 is one of the most well-known routers out there famous for its consistent performance. Sure there are defects regarding its longevity but for what it is worth, it’s pretty decent.
