An Asus Blue Cave router!

Mac Format - - CONTENTS -

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.
