Product Details

Summary

RT-AX88U is a 4x4 dual-band Wi-Fi router that provides 160MHz bandwidth and 1024-QAM for dramatically faster wireless connections. With a total networking speed of about 6000Mbps - 1148Mbps on the 2.4GHz band and 4804Mbps on the 5GHz band - RT-AX88U is 2.3X faster than 802.11ac 4x4 dual-band routers. With a revolutionary combination of OFDMA and MU-MIMO technology, 802.11ax technology provides up to 4X greater network capacity and efficiency in traffic-dense environments. Previous-generation 802.11ac Wi-Fi can only handle one device at a time on each network channel, which is an inefficient use of available bandwidth. OFDMA support in the 802.11ax Wi-Fi standard divides each channel into small sub-channels, allowing signals from multiple devices* to be bundled together and transmitted simultaneously, reducing latency for a smoother, more responsive Wi-Fi experience. RT-AX88U's Adaptive QoS prioritizes game packets for smoother online play. It also has built-in wtfast® to seek out and secure the shortest possible path between your gaming device and the game server, minimizing game ping and lag. RT-AX88U has lifetime free AiProtection Pro, powered by Trend Micro™ with automatic, regularly updated security signatures to protect your devices and personal data from internet threats. This strong security offers advanced parental controls, including the ability to block specific websites and mobile app types.

Features

  • 802.11ax Wi-Fi standard for better efficiency and throughput.
  • 6000Mbps Wi-Fi speed to handle even the busiest network with ease.
  • 4 antennas + 8 LAN ports to support more clients at the same time.
  • AiProtection, powered by Trend Micro™, blocks internet security threats for all your connected smart devices.
  • Compatible with ASUS AiMesh Wi-Fi system for seamless whole-home coverage.

Requires cable or DSL modem subscription with an Internet Service Provider (ISP)


What is a router?

There are two devices that tend to confuse people when it comes to the networking industry–the modem and the router. The modem connects your home to your Internet Services Provider, such as Bell Fibe Internet, while the router distributes the signals to different areas in your home. The modern modem generally includes a wireless router. However, its range might not be wide enough for your home. In this case, you might wish to add a router to your network.

What Wi-Fi router should you buy?

Consider the key points here that will help you choose the router that works best for your needs:
  • The size of your home/coverage area, mesh Wi-Fi could be an option if you have a larger home.
  • The material or thickness of your walls, as you may require a more powerful router to achieve the desired signal strength.
  • The number of devices you wish to connect in your home; you might want to look into tri-band routers if you have many smart devices in your home.
  • 2.4GHz is good for regular web surfing and social media apps but other household appliances such as your microwave or TV will interfere with it.
  • 5.0GHz is optimized for video streaming and online gaming, but it has shorter range than the 2.4GHz bandwidth.
  • LAN ports and USB ports may be preferred as they allow you to connect demanding wired devices such as desktop PCs, gaming consoles, network-attached storage (NAS) drives, and home-automation hubs.
