ASUS RT-N65U: Dual CPUs and Turbo NAT Max Wi-Fi and Wired Speeds
Maximized concurrent 2.4GHz/5GHz wireless and wired speeds join the world’s first twin USB 3.0 ports
on an N750 router with file, printer, and 3G sharing
August 13, 2012
The ASUS RT-N65U USB 3.0 dual-band wireless-N750 Gigabit router offers consumers an attractive and powerful device that caters
to HD home entertainment and content streaming, multiplayer gaming, plus heavy downloading. It utilizes dual processors and
Turbo NAT to optimize concurrent 2.4GHz/5GHz wireless and wired throughput, resulting in the fastest-performing N750 router
available. It ships with twin USB 3.0 ports to enable easy device connectivity and flexible usage as a server, and the entire
package is made readily accessible to users via the exclusive ASUSWRT dashboard interface. The artistic black diamond design
seen on ASUS routers such as the RT-N56U has been applied on the RT-N65U.
Dual CPUs accelerate simultaneous dual-band wireless
The RT-N65U improves network performance for smoother and more satisfying online experiences. Using powerful yet efficient
dual-processor System on a Chip (SoC) architecture, it dedicates a CPU to each operating band, set to 2.4GHz and 5GHz.
This allows both frequencies to reach maximum throughput, unlike single-CPU designs where compute power has to be shared.
The two bands offer up to 750Mbps combined, and users can take advantage of the less crowded and cleaner 5GHz band for
tasks such as HD streaming and online gaming, while the 2.4GHz band easily handles more routine applications,
including web browsing, social networking, and emailing.
Turbo NAT: hardware network address translation
Wired connections reach maximum speeds in concurrent operation with Wi-Fi to guarantee the smoothest online experiences.
Dedicated Turbo NAT IP address resolution and packet control exceed software NAT capabilities, resulting in sustainable
900Mbps speeds. Working together, wired connections and wireless channels experience no performance drop, making the RT-N65U
the fastest N750 router available and an extra-stable platform for continuous downloading and online multitasking.
Exclusive AiRadar signal shaping technology
To make the most of the enhanced speed of the RT-N65U, ASUS includes its proprietary AiRadar design,
ensuring the strongest and most focused transmission possible. While improving connection stability,
AiRadar also expands wireless coverage, which means the RT-N65U can easily support large home and office networks,
as well as multi-floor locations.
Better sharing and productivity with twin SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports
ASUS includes two USB 3.0 ports on the RT-N65U, instantly turning the router into a multi-function server.
Users can apply it as an FTP, Samba, UPnP AV, and printer server, making better use of resources by sharing
across different devices. The router can download content directly to USB storage with no PC required,
helping users get more done with improved multitasking and time savings. The RT-N65U works with DLNA-compatible devices,
and can be used as a foundation for a fast home entertainment setup. It also works as a 3G sharing enabler, allowing several
devices to get online through a single cellular account while offering failover protection in the event of WAN connection failure.
Power functions and easy management
As with other recent ASUS routers, the exclusive ASUSWRT dashboard interface offers streamlined setup in just 30 seconds,
allowing users to get online quickly. It also provides extensive network monitoring and control, all with an intuitive graphical
design that can be learned in minutes. Client management and one-click updates are included alongside several ASUS applications
such as VPN Server, Download Master (24-hour downloading even post-shutdown), parental controls, and guest network supervision.
