The Overplay Asus RT-AC56U DD-WRT FlashRouter is the new and improved version of the Asus RT-N56U - its highly popular predecessor. In fact, the AC56U takes that popular design and ramps up the features for next gen wireless capabilities with the addition of 802.11ac.
The AC56U features a supercharged 800 MHz Broadcom processor; one of the best Asus router processors with DD-WRT support. Processing is the key to high performance routing, and this one has room to burn and grow as streaming video demands become increasingly more intensive.
Recommended For: 5-7 users looking for high quality video streaming on 4-6 connected devices. Ideal for wired connections in small-to-mid-sized homes and home offices.
