The short editorial description of ASUS WL-500W

WL-500W - 802.11n Multi-Functional Wireless Router


The official marketing text of ASUS WL-500W as supplied by the manufacturer
The ASUS WL-500W Super Speed N multifunctional wireless router adopted the latest 802.11n draft to deliver high-speed data transfer and unparalleled interoperability between n-draft devices. It also incorporated Download Master and USB Pug-n’-Share features for convenient digital content downloads and sharing of printer, webcam and external hard drive functions.

Faster than Wired Connection
The WL-500W router adopted the latest wireless technology, 802.11n draft. With MIMO (Multiple Input, Multiple Output) technology, the WL-500W achieves speeds higher than 100Mbps, making it suitable for whole home multimedia streams. 802.11n draft products are fully compatible with legacy 802.11b/g devices.

Download Master – The Easy Way Download
Turn the WL-500W into a wireless storage device by connecting an external hard drive, and enjoy the convenience brought by Download Master. It is a unique technology found in ASUS wireless solutions that features several innovations to simplify the download process. For laptop users, simply set download priorities then disconnect the laptop, and let the WL-500W and Download Master take care of everything. At a remote location. The WL-500W also enables download queue setting via the Internet. When users return from home or office, the files they demanded will be neatly arranged in the external hard drive.

The WL-500W offers a host of USB Plug-n'-Share functions. Whether it’s hard drives, printers or webcams, just plug them in via the USB 2.0 ports to enable other devices in the network to share their functions.

Plug-n'-Share hard drive is especially worth highlight. 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. All these functions can be enjoyed without connecting the WL-500W to any computer systems.
