ASUS EA-N66 Wi-Fi Ethernet Adapter Review
Manufacturer: ASUSTeK Computer Inc.
Full Disclosure: The product sample used in this article has been provided by ASUS.
Devout followers of the technology industry may have seen a sneak preview of ASUS' latest dabble in networking hardware back in January when it was announced at CES 2012. Maybe you only read an information starved press release after the event, either way there hasn't been much information regarding the ASUS EA-N66 3-in-1 Dual Band Wireless N450 Ethernet Adapter until now. Benchmark Reviews recently reviewed the ASUS EA-N66 Dual Band Wireless N900 Router and USB-N53 Dual-Band Wireless N300 USB Adapter, and now the EA-N66 3-in-1 Ethernet adapter completes the trio.
There are a few Wi-Fi to Ethernet bridges available on the market as well as dedicated Wi-Fi repeaters and Access Points, but never before have all three functions been combined into one device, and never has a piece of networking hardware ever looked so interesting. Speed is the name of the game here though, the EA-N66 3-in-1 Dual Band Wireless N Ethernet Adapter has a 10/100/1000 Base-T compliant RJ45 interface and can operate on both 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless N frequencies at speeds up to 450Mb/s.
Before we get to the testing we will have a good look at the ASUS EA-N66 Ethernet Adapter and its features and specifications.
