The included EZ UI allows user sto set up a wireless network in few steps. There's actually no disc install, as this wireless router is entirely plug and connect, so the time from first hook up to full connectivity is measured in mere minutes.

Download Master is another feature of the RT-N13U, allowing for downloads to a USB storage device connected to the router to continue even after the PC is turned off. An image of the file being downloaded is created as it's requested right on the RT-N13U's on-board storage space, which is then transferred to external storage with no need for the source PC to be involved.
The RT-N13U is also a portable access point (AP), as well as a broadband repeater. These three modes can be switched at the touch of a button.
As an AP and repeater, the RT-N13U can be used to expand and manage wireless networks. It can help users and administrators structure the availability of Wi-Fi in a home or office environment, at the same time extending coverage.
