    If I had known these things about this router and Tomato USB is something I like it might be worth the money I paid for it if I get the rebate.

    For those looking for a cheap wireless N router + Print & FTP Server, this is an excellent buy!

    I bought this router specifically with hope that it 'might' be able to do more than what it claims on the box, and it does, to some extent. Read on and you'll find answers to your questions that any other reviews on the web aren't able to tell you.

    1. Can a USB hub be used to connect multiple peripherals to the router?
    A. Yes, but with certain limitations. I have successfully connected a printer and a hard drive to the router via a usb hub, and both work flawlessly! Here's what you do: plug in the usb hub to the router, then connect the hdd to the usb hub, set up your ftp server on the hdd, then connect the printer to the usb hub, and set up your printer. You will only see the printer show up in the router's main page, but the ftp serve works fine. However, hooking up 2 printers will not work because the print command is directed ip-to-ip (your pc to the router) and pass on to the usb port. When you have a usb hub with multiple printers connected the print command will be pass on to every port on the hub. Sometimes printing will come out from the right printer that you want it to, but sometimes the command will get send to the other printer which may cause your printer to malfunction. I have two printers: a HP inkjet and a Samsung laser. It happened to me when I want to print from the Samsung but the command got sent to the HP, and HP will keep feeding paper and print out an error message on the corner until I force power-down the printer; same for the Samsung when a HP print command was sent to the Samsung it just kept printing errors until the machine overhead and power-off itself.

    I had no issues adding it to my home WLAN. Once configured, it has worked flawlessly. The instructions were easy to follow. I have 4 computers (all different brands, three XP and one Vista) on the network sharing this printer. Range has been excellant - the access point is located on the second floor and this print server is stored in the basement. Compatiblity has been excellant with the other manufacturers equipment (D-link and Netgear) in my network - no problems. True Asus is not as well known for WIFI equipment but does have an excellant track record in motherboards and netbooks. The product allows me to add a future remote NAS - in the basement.

    I had very little trouble setting this device up as a router; it does a reasonable job in that regard. However, as a file or print server, it's a piece of junk.

    First I tried to set it up as a file server. It simply would not recognize my WD external drive that works perfectly in every other context. After several frustrating emails and calls to Asus tech support, they finally told me that only EXT2 and FAT16 devices are supported. If you assume that everyone lives in a Linux world, this might be a reasonable choice. But in the real world, a lot of people are going to want to use FAT32 or NTFS. So, as a file server, relatively useless.

    Then I tried to set it up as a print server. My Brother MFC-420CN printer was recognized and the correct drivers were installed, no sweat. However it wouldn't print and wouldn't give up any useful error messages. I worked with 5-6 Asus tech support people on this issue and only one of them seemed to have the vaguest idea of how this router worked. After upgrading the firmware and downloading new drivers, one of the drivers (vuhub.sys) suddenly started crashing my system. It took a couple days to identify the source of the problem and figure out how to remove it. Again, I live in the real world; my system needs to be available all the time. Random BSODs are not acceptable. So, as a print server, useless.

    Lastly, the knowledge level, availability, attitude, and follow-through of the Asus tech support people I dealt with was astonishingly poor.

    If you want to buy this router for its router capabilities alone, go ahead. If you want it for the features supposedly offered by its USB port, look elsewhere.

    A good value for money router. I have been shopping around for an wireless router for some time. Best Buy, Walmart, Office Depot. I wanted the latest (Any N Wireless) at an affordable price. Most of the N -routers from Linksys, Belkin, Netgear were priced at $60 (not including tax).

    I live in an 1200 sq.ft apartment and the wireless router gives excellent connectivity in every nook and corner of the apartment. Its been an week and as yet, it has not given me any problems. There is continous connectivity (no droppping of connectivity in between). The videos from youtube are as clear over wireless connection as when I used to connect through ethernet cable. There are no pixelation. The RT-N13U is rated as 300 mbps and I guess it is as good as its rating.

    Asus is not as well known as Linksys, Netgear and Belkin, but I was prepared to take an $50 risk (thats the price of this router) which is about $10 less than other wireless N router and in addition get an Print Server. I havent used the Print server and repeater features of this router though.

    That was the good part. Now for the bad part. Asus literature says that configuring the wireless connectivity is as easy as connecting to the router and clicking on "EZ UI" setup feature. I dont know about others but the feature didnt work for me. I was able to connect to the router easily enough, but the router was not able to connect to the internet. I used to get an message that the configured LAN IP is not correct. After 2 hours of going through all the features of the router and crawling through the information in internet I was finally able to make the wireless router connect to the internet.

    In case any of you come across this issue, here is what I had to do.
