If you expect your routers to be ugly and functional, Asus has a response: here's one that's stylish and functional. The RT-N56U provides speedy dual-band data throughput, and should be able to cover your whole home (or at least, say, a three-bedroom apartment). It includes fast Gigabit Ethernet, two USB ports so that you can add a hard drive and printer to your network, and straightforward, browser-based setup software. It can also function as a uPnP media server, streaming files from attached drives across your network (without requiring any configuration or setup), and can make your files available over the internet. Oh, and did we mention that it looks pretty damn hot, too?
