Get Your Home Ready for WiFi 6 (802.11ax)

The growing number of connected personal and IoT devices has led to an overall increase in network density that is pushing the limits of the current WiFi standard. The latest 802.11ax standard provides future-proof technologies, higher network efficiency, faster WiFi speeds, greater coverage and improved battery life for connected devices, providing a significantly better networking experience for users.

*It requires 802.11ax-compatible devices to enjoy the benefits brought by 802.11ax WiFi standard.

 

Built for Multi-device Households

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 WiFi 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 WiFi 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 WiFi experience.

 

Better Battery Life for Your Devices

Target Wake Time (TWT) allows RT-AX55 to schedule designated intervals for devices to transmit data. This allows them to sleep when there is no need to wait for a router signal, reducing power consumption by up to 7X for significantly improved battery life.

 

WiFi that Goes Farther

With the latest 802.11ax WiFi standard featuring OFDMA technology, RT-AX55 provides increased WiFi signal range and better coverage by dividing each channel into smaller sub-channels. These sub-channels have a smaller bandwidth that enables them to travel up to 80% farther, resulting in a better WiFi connection throughout your home.

* Actual data throughput and WiFi coverage will vary from network conditions and environmental factors, including the volume of network traffic, building material and construction, and network overhead, result in lower actual data throughput and wireless coverage.

 

Protection for your Home Network

RT-AX55 has lifetime free AiProtection Classic, powered by Trend Micro™ with automatic, regularly updated security signatures to protect your devices and personal data from internet threats. This strong security offers parental controls, including the ability to block specific websites and mobile app types.

 

Powerful Whole-home WiFi System. The Way You Want.

In most cases, your RT-AX55 can deliver smooth, reliable WiFi to every part of your home. But WiFi coverage can be affected by many factors - room layout, construction materials, and even furnishings. ASUS AiMesh is an innovative new router feature that fixes these problems: it creates a whole-home WiFi network using multiple ASUS routers. AiMesh is powerful, flexible and you can use a mix of ASUS router models - protecting your investment! AiMesh gives you time-saving central control, and seamless roaming capability. AiMesh is WiFi you can rely on - for all your devices, all the time!

- Turn your ASUS routers into whole-home WiFi system with a simple firmware update
- Mix and match preferred models from selected ASUS routers
- Create a WiFi network with either a single SSID or multiple SSIDs
- All router features works across the entire WiFi system

A good Prosumer product

The price aint cheap, but its worth it. After purchasing similarly priced prosumer routers previously (different brand) that were somehow still as flakey as a free ISP router, this one made me brand loyal.

+ Excellent WiFi range, and the normal + 4g bands are bonded together seemlessly
+ Great web interface
+ Amazing tools, including free DDNS that gives you a URL that points to your home public IP
+ PBTech has instructions on its site for setting up this brand's devices for your home fibre connection

ASUS RT-AX55 WI-Fi 6 Gb Wireless Router

I used to get random drop-outs from the internet with my other new router. The problem was solved by replacing this router with the ASUS RT-AX55. The ASUS is performing reliably with no drop-outs. Very happy with this ASUS.

Pretty solid

I've got two Asus AX55's acting as AI Mesh nodes slaved to the more powerful AX86U, and so far it's been really good. The UI is a aesthetically bit hideous, but actually very functional and more explanatory than most. I love that once you configure the nodes as nodes, you no longer log into them, they're incorporated into the UI of the main router.

Until the AI Mesh 2.0 firmware update in Jan 2021, the AI Mesh system didn't extend to the guest network, which was the whole point in my case (we have two outbuildings which struggled for signal). However, that critical update wasn't officially pushed to this AX55. Luckily I found on SNB forum ...view more

Exactly what I needed

I finally got sick of the rubbish router my ISP provided and went into PB to get a new one. The salesman who helped me (sorry can't his name) was awesome and suggested this unit, setup was straight forward following the online guide PB have (which you have to google). It's been flawless since, can't ask for more.

Does the Job

Actually have two of these, linked in an AiMesh environment to an AX-82U (all from PB Tech). Collectively work well to produce good wireless speeds for our double story house. I find the interface either on the web or the Asus phone app useful to identify which devices are on the network.

A great upgrade

Purchased this after having issues with micro outages on previous router. What I found was that it was easy to setup, and not only did it not have the random outages, but the overall network performance in the house has improved markedly. Great buy and worth the money

Major signal level boost.

Was only getting a shaky one bar with a lot of dropping from my ISP's stock modem at the other end of the house. This was great for replacement and now i have great signal everywhere in my house, definately worth the price. Great guides from PB tech to get it working on fibre as well - the only almost downside is i cant find a way to mount this on a wall.

Mac beware

I got this router, and it immediately doubled my old router speed. Interface quite easy to use, remote app quite useful as well. Did have a problems with Macbook AIR , Mac OS Big Sur 11.2.3 wifi dropping/stalling, other Mac Airs running with no issues. So solution, Smart Connect OFF, and 5G ( Its preferred network ) off AUTO mode and pick a frequency. Seems to have solved it.
