ASUS ADSL2+, Wi-Fi hybrid

ASUS on Friday announced it will soon offer the DSL-N11 hybrid modem that offers both a 300gMbps Wi-Fi 802.11n router with an ADSL2/2+ modem for fast internet and data access. A new graphical user interface called ASUS EZ UI combines installation and management programs that are meant to make is easy for any user to set up and manage the functions of the modem. The Quick Internet Setup automatically detects local VPI and VCI settings as well as Internet connection types. The Network Map offers detailed network status information, including the number of wired and wireless devices connected to the device.

Another application dubbed Dr. Surf helps with troubleshooting connection problems and offers real-time diagnostics. It does this by showing possible problems and listing ways of correcting each, instead of just a simple and incomprehensible error page. What ASUS calls EZQoS allows user to set data priorities for various network operations, devoting a set amount of bandwidth for such activities as online gaming, FTP sites, voice calls and the like.

Interfaces on the DSL-N11 include four 10/100Base-TX MDI/MDIX Ethernet ports and a single pair of RJ-11 ADSL ports.

ASUS has not revealed pricing nor release dates for the DSL-N11 hybrid modem.
