The RT-N10 can provide two wireless networks which feature dynamic bandwidth allocation and access control. You can allow guests to access the Internet without sharing your password and private network devices by creating a virtual wireless router for guest. Keep the high bandwidth and secure private network for yourself.
A big fan of ASUS products. Easy set up!
The stock firmware from ASUS is very buggy. Look for guides on installing Tomato firmware!

This works fine!!5/18/2010
Great performance and very easy to set up with lots of options for a cheap router. If you want N speed you have to make an "N only" network. I get 120 - 130 Mbps connected to a Linksys N router in bridge mode (DD-WRT firmware), an AirLink Golden N mini USB, and a TrendNet USB adapter. Been running for weeks without a reboot. DD-WRT database lists this as a supported router, but as of the date of this post it still doesn't work in wireless mode. (Something about the Broadcom drivers not being available.) So, if you're looking to use this and flash it to DD-WRT, I'd wait until its supported or get a different router. If you want to use it as a repeater, flash the firmware to Asus 126.96.36.199 it will go into repeater mode. Overall a good router especially good if you get it on special for $25!!
Not worth the trouble5/7/2010
After upgrading to the latest firmware this unit became a little less problematic, eg. the problems with 802.11 bg and n compatibility seemed to go away. But it still has significant trouble getting an IP address from my Comcast cable modem, requiring both units to be be fully powered on first and then the WAN cable connected. Overall, I wish I'd spent a few extra bucks on a router that wasn't so much trouble.
I liked the product. buy.com shipped it with good care. I liked it and recommend it to everyone.
Okay for G, forget wireless N2/3/2010
I bought this because it seemed like a decent deal, and we have an ASUS laptop that we're pretty satisfied with. But this router is not a good choice if you're looking for something that actually operates at wireless-N speeds. I've tried it on every channel/frequency and absolutely cannot connect via wireless-N, even when the laptop is sitting right next to the router. Leave it on auto-select and it automatically defaults to G. Kind of defeats the point of getting an N router though, doesn't it? In addition, the set up is NOT "EZ". The instructions are poorly written, skimping on certain important points that someone who is not terribly familiar with networking in the first place might need to know. (Eg. How to get your computer's IP, subnet mask, gateway, and DNS, should automatic detection fail as it did with me . . . Start Menu --> Run --> ipconfig /all, BTW) The interface is clumsy and slow, and the poor grammar on several of the pages wreaks of foreign/cheap manufacture. I realize wireless-N is still in draft form, but this is kinda pathetic. You'd expect an N router to at least operate in wireless N, even if it only does so at reduced speeds. My advice -- wait.
The Asus wireless router was relatively easy to install. I've only been using it for 1 day, but the speed seems very good - both for my existing wired network and for the wireless network for the Ipod touches my family has.
