- Dual-band (2.4 + 5 GHz) AC2900 wireless router with the latest 802.11ac MU-MIMO technology for data transfer speeds up to 2900 Mbps
- 1.8GHz 64bit Dual-Core processor optimizes network traffic and connectivity speeds from the USB 3.1 Gen1 and 4x Gigabit LAN ports
- Designed for lag-free online gaming and flawless 4K UHD streaming with WTFast® Game Accelerator and Adaptive QoS
- AiProtection Powered by Trend Micro™ provides built-in 24/7 protection from external attacks and threats, neutralizing them before they reach your network or connected devices
- Manage your network with the ASUS Router app - setup your network, manage usage and parental controls, even get instant notifications about important network-based events


Furiously Fast. Powerfully Equipped.

ASUS RT-AC86U is the ultimate choice for gaming, with blistering 2917Mbps Wi-Fi speeds, MU-MIMO technology and powerful game-boosting features including the WTFast® game accelerator and Adaptive QoS.




Ultrafast Wi-Fi with NitroQAM™ Technology

Whether you're gaming online in a heated competition or streaming a live event in 4K UHD, lag and buffering are simply not an option. NitroQAM™ (1024-QAM) technology on the RT-AC86U delivers a combined 2917 Mbps Wi-Fi speed, ensuring everyone on your network can enjoy smooth streaming and low-latency online gaming.


Double Gaming Boost

Enjoy low-latency online gaming with boosted internet and home network performance!





Free Game Accelerator Inside

Ping time and variance are critical technical parameters that affect responsiveness in online gaming, and their values depend heavily on the route game packets take to and from their destination. The Gamers Private Network® (GPN®) from WTFast® automatically performs route optimization, choosing the most efficient route for game packets, resulting in consistently-lower ping time and minimal packet loss. With RT-AC86U this optimization is free for accelerating one selectable device at a time, so you can enjoy the results on supported competitive multi-player online games.




Adaptive QoS - Prioritize Your Game

Boost your gaming bandwidth with Adaptive QoS (Quality of Service), which allows you to easily prioritize gaming packets and activities. You can even assign full dedicated bandwidth while gaming under gamer solo mode, making RT-AC86U the perfect ally for low latency gaming anywhere in your home. It supports major consoles including PlayStation®3, PlayStation®4, PS4™ Pro, PlayStation®Vita, Wii U, 3DS and Xbox One.


Multiple Capacity Wi-Fi with Revolutionary MU-MIMO Technology

MU-MIMO gives every compatible device3 its own dedicated full-speed Wi-Fi connection, so that multiple devices can connect at the same time without slowing down the network.
In fact, RT-AC86U is able to connect to multiple MU-MIMO-compatible clients at each device's maximum speed simultaneously, unlike standard single-user MIMO where individual devices have to wait for sequential transmissions.




Unbeatable Coverage

With ASUS innovative antenna design and the new Range Boost technology, both Wi-Fi range and signal stability improve dramatically. AiRadar further focuses Wi-Fi signal on your devices, making your Wi-Fi faster, clearer and stronger.




Powerful Processor, Faster Transfers

RT-AC86U's top-of-the-line 1.8 GHz dual-core processor brings its computational capability to the next level. USB data transfers enjoy up to over 110 MB/s speed and the router download/upload speed (WAN-LAN throughput) up to 1600 Mbps.





AiProtection - Your Digital Playground is Protected

RT-AC86U incorporates ASUS AiProtection, a commercial-grade network security system powered by Trend Micro™ Smart Home Network. With AiProtection, all connected devices are protected, even if they have no antivirus capability of their own - such as IoT devices.
AiProtection blocks common internet-based attacks before they reach the network, and if an infected device is detected on the network, AiProtection instantly blocks it to prevent it sending any personal information to malicious servers.




Fortified Frontline Network Security

Networking is only half the equation when it comes to game performance. As AiProtection is integrated in RT-AC86U and powered by the router, even if a device's security software isn't turned on - to get around blocked games, for example - AiProtection still protects the network from attacks and intrusions, for added peace of mind.




ASUS Router APP - Control Your Network Anywhere

In your increasingly mobile-enabled life, having control over your network via an app is more important than ever. The new ASUS Router APP is built from the ground-up to be both intuitive and robust, all without needing to boot up a PC.
One-click Game Boost Easy Router Setup Real-time Traffic Monitering
Clever Network Diagnosis Effortless Guest Wi-Fi Sharing Handy Firmware Update




ASUSWRT - Easily Control Your Network

RT-AC86U features the enhanced, intuitive ASUSWRT user interface, which gives you easy access to both the 3-step web-based installation process and a wealth of robust advanced options.


Connectivity Options

RT-AC86U has four Gigabit LAN ports, USB 2.0 port and USB 3.1 Gen 1 port. Smart TV, game consoles, NAS storage devices and more can now have their own dedicated ports, making RT-AC86U your digital home hub.




Your Sharing Center

With built-in USB 3.1 Gen 1 and USB 2.0 ports, you can connect USB-enabled devices, such as external storage drives, printers, or a 3G/4G dongle to your ASUS router and share them conveniently with other users via Wi-Fi. And with USB 3.1 Gen 1, you can enjoy up to 10X faster data transfer speeds.

Customer Questions & Answers

Answer:
Yes it will. I also have Spark on Chorus Fibre ONT. Just make sure you go to the additional LAN settings to get it working. Fill out the normal WAN settings that are shown on PB Tech product page with the ASUS 68U model. You have to go to another additional menu to get it working with this model. Under "Advanced Settings" go to.. LAN > IPTV Under "LAN Port" is a setting called "Select ISP Profile" in the drop-down select "Manual Setting" Below "Select ISP Profile" is another setting called "Internet" make sure VID is 10 Leave everything the same and hit Apply. I hope this helps. Hopefully PB Tech will update this page with router setting images.

4 X the speed of my ISP's

11 April 2018
This router has completely changed my internet experience. My household had many devices connected to my ISP's Spark Huawei HG630b router which was crippling the connectivity and speed. The Huawei was never good to start with. The WIFI signal on the ASUS 86U covers my 5 bedroom house with 100 strength. Even the LAN connection is faster than the Huawei LAN.

To get this particular model working with Spark fill out the normal WAN settings that are shown on PB Tech with the 68U but you have to go to another menu to get it working with this model.

Under "Advanced Settings" go to..

Excellent replacement for

31 May 2018
Purchased to replace the router provided by Vodafone for a fibre connection

Pros
-Much better Wifi coverage
-Noticeably better throughput on wired and wireless connections
-Management interface provides much more functionality and control

Con
-Setting up the required VLAN for Vodafone fibre was non intuitive, setting is hidden in the LAN - IPTV settings and is labelled Internet VID, luckily PBTech have good guides available here https://www.pbtech.co.nz/ASUSISPSettings

Great router, good WiFi p

29 May 2018
I purchased this router to solve 2 main issues of my ISP provided fibre router. Firstly WiFi coverage and secondarily inconsistent gateway performance.

To set it up as a fibre router the VLAN settings are only set by adding a manual LAN config for "IPTV". The PB Tech setup instructions work exactly as provided, but from a router setup point of view it's not intuitive that you're setting egress traffic to be tagged. That aside, once set it works very well.

WiFi performance was poor due to having a larger two-story house with a number of walls for the poor signal to have to travel through. I didn't expect performance to be amazing still b...

Best router ever

23 April 2018
Excellent router pretty strong signal for our 2 storey house. We have UFB and this router is able to transfer 100Mbps/20Mbps easy. Set up was basic. There are some other features which i haven't fully utilised yet. Overall I highly recommend this router.

ASUS RT-AC86U

27 March 2018
I did a lot of homework prior to purchasing this product suspecting it wasn't going to do what I wanted - high-speed wireless coverage throughout a two level house.

I persevered with my ISP's adequate (802.11n) router with two access points and was never satisfied. The Asus RT-AC86U is fabulous! I get a solid 45-50dBm coverage throughout our 220 sqm house with just the Asus router and near cabled speed - 97-98 Mb down and 48-49 upload in most places. As a Mac user, I love the built-in Time Machine function and the iPhone app is really convenient.

Security - great. Ease of install - couldn't be easier. Future proof - yep. Downside - pe...

Bought this router as a replacement for my Spark router, which was replaced twice. Excellent router and really fast. Decent coverage despite walls and beams. Easy setup using the Android app, but ran into trouble when I updated the firmware. Reset the device and started from scratch. Working great. Highly recommended.

Good router

13 December 2018
I bought this router to replace the Spark router I had. The objective was to improve the 41ms ping latency with online gaming and to solve horrible wifi connections.
Wifi connection issues definitely solved with brilliant signal strength and throughput, however it made zero diffidence on ping latency. Absolutely none. Even with the GamesBoost and WTfast features enabled. I'm switching over to to an ISP that caters specifically for gamers, to try and solve that issue in case Spark has this throttled.
Other than that, a very good and stable router with a proper integrated firewall.

Way better than ISP's stock router!

23 November 2018
We upgraded a few days ago from a Huawei HG659B router from our ISP. We had been struggling with the WiFi dropping off especially at the far end of our 3 bedroom house (average size, but a bit long and narrow)! The difference is amazing, my daughter now gets 3 bars of WiFi on her phone and great streaming where it was only 1 to zero before. My son checked and says he is getting twice the speed now.
