Of our recent sweep of Draft N wireless routers, the AU$170 Asus WL-500W offers some unconventional yet useful features not found on the others. Aside of the regularly goodies including a firewall, encryption, QoS, and a print server, the WL-500W also...
Good Great range and signal penetration, Integrated print, media, FTP and Webcam servers Can support multiple USB devices simultaneously...
Bad Bulky and impractical design, Buggy Web interface, Confusing instruction if youre trying to figure out the special USB features, Throughput at close range could better, No gigabit Ethernet...
Bottom line We like the Asus WL-500W for its wealth of unique features and its strong signal at long range, but its short-range throughput is substandard and theres no gigabit Ethernet support. This is a good choice only for advanced users who will take advantag...

This article continues our series of reviews of network equipment that supports the draft 802.11n standard. As you can guess from the device name, the ASUS WL-500W carries on the traditions of such popular products from ASUS as WL-500G Deluxe, WL-500g...

Bad Combines Draft N with Fast Ethernet, No USB indicator, Small indicators, Stray light from the case, Nondetachable antennas, Low functionality of the Download Master...
Bottom line The WL-500W proved to be nothing else but the WL-500g Premium with the addition of Draft N. The firmware for each router is about the same quality. The functionality and hardware platform are the same, too. Yes, the WL-500W is good but it lacks new fea...

ASUS has long been known as a company to deliver high-quality products. Up to now, I havent had a personal bad experience with anything Ive had from them, so Ive been quite lucky. It wasnt until last November that I was even aware that they produc...

Bottom line So far, I havent really touched on any downsides of the router, because there are not that many, fortunately. There are a few though, which I will touch on now. First off, the admin panel to the router is far from being intuitive. Its ugly, clunky a...

Bad Help throughout router control panel sparse, Wireless link not as powerful/stable as it probably should be, The color scheme of the control panel looks like something from a funky HGTV special...
Bottom line I really like the WL-500W, in fact, I will probably replace my WHR-HP-G54 with it, provided DD-WRT supports it in a future release, as the ASUS stock firmware does not provide the amount of control I need. That, and its really ugly. This router is ce...
