An Asus Blue Cave router!
Most routers are not known for their sense of style – black boxes adorned with antennas are hardly eye-catching. The Blue Cave from Asus, though, takes a leaf out of the Apple book of design with its striking good looks that’ll spruce up wherever you choose to place it.
It’s not just about appearances. The Blue Cave has huge bandwidth, with up to 2,600Mbps of Wi-Fi across its two channels. Unlike some routers that mesh their 2.4GHz and 5GHz channels together in one network, the Blue Cave can keep them separate, ensuring high-bandwidth tasks – like streaming 4K video – have room to breathe.
It’s one smart cookie, too. Setting it up is super-easy and can be done from your iOS device, and you can even control it with Amazon Alexa. It comes with a host of useful extras too: you can limit bandwidth on a per-device basis; there’s a clever family management system that puts restrictions, schedules and reports at your fingertips; and there’s even anti-malware protection from security firm TrendMicro built in.
So if you want a powerful router that also looks the part, the Asus Blue Cave is a great choice.
