Asus WL-500W

details: 802.11n Multi-Functional Wireless Router
hardware type: Wireless Router
date added: 2009-12-05
updated: 2015-10-10
The WL-500W is a wireless broadband router. It has a single 10/100Base-T WAN port, four 10/100Base-T Ethernet LAN ports and two USB 2.0 ports. Using the USB ports, the router can act as a print server. When a hard drive is connected to one of these ports, it acts as a ftp server, which lets users backup data from their computers and use network neighborhood in Windows to browse external hard drive content.

The integrated access point complies with the IEEE 802.11n (draft) standard. With MIMO (Multiple Input, Multiple Output) technology, the WL-500W achieves speeds higher than 100Mbps, making it suitable for whole home multimedia streams. It supports WEP and WPA/WPA2 wireless encryption and 802.1x authentication. A WPS button allows for worry-free wireless security configuration.

A built-in SPI firewall provides IP, URL and MAC address filtering.
