AX6000 Dual Band 802.11ax WiFi Router supporting MU-MIMO and OFDMA technology, with AiProtection Pro network security powered by Trend Micro™, built-in wtfast® game accelerator and Adaptive QoS

- Next-Gen WiFi Standard - 802.11ax WiFi standard for better efficiency and throughput.
- Ultrafast WiFi Speed - 6000Mbps WiFi speed to handle even the busiest network with ease.
- Wider Usage and More Convenience - 4 antennas + 8 LAN ports to support more clients at the same time.
- Commercial-grade Security - AiProtection Pro, powered by Trend Micro™, blocks internet security threats for all your connected smart devices.

The New Era of Home WiFi

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 Wi-Fi standard. The latest 802.11ax standard provides future-proof technologies, higher network efficiency, faster Wi-Fi speeds, greater coverage and improved battery life for connected devices, providing a significantly better networking experience for users.

 

Warp-speed WiFi

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.

 

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 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.

 

Give your Online Gaming a Double Boost

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

 

Commercial-grade Security for your Home Network

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.

 

More LAN Ports for More Convenience

Eight Gigabit LAN ports make RT-AX88U the ideal solution if you have multiple wired devices, such as NAS systems, PCs and switches. And, if you ever want to host a LAN party at home, RT-AX88U makes it possible.

 

Wireless that's as Stable as Wired Ethernet

When you are far away from your router, enjoying the stability of a wired network connection is usually impractical or impossible. With special designed antennas, AiRadar beamforming and RangeBoost technology, RT-AX88U provides wide coverage and a stable signal, letting you enjoy a reliable and smooth connection for gaming or work anywhere in your home.

 

Powerful Whole-home Wi-Fi System. The Way You Want.

In most cases, your RT-AX88U can deliver smooth, reliable Wi-Fi to every part of your home. But Wi-Fi 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 Wi-Fi 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 Wi-Fi you can rely on - for all your devices, all the time!

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

 

Extreme Power with 1.8GHz Quad-core CPU

RT-AX88U features a top-of-the-line 1.8GHz 64-bit quad-core CPU that is more powerful than many desktop processors. With its incredible performance, RT-AX88U maximizes throughput for the best networking performance, accelerates USB data transfers and more.

Very impressive piece of tech

=== Troubleshooting I had to do ===

My ISP disallows me from using any routers except for the trash Huawei one they provided. This means that this ASUS router didn't work out of the box (not ASUS's fault). What I had to do was to set my WAN MAC address the the MAC address of my previous Huawei router, which resolved the issue.

=== Pros ===

* Incredibly fast Wi-Fi. Getting 100MBit/s on 2.4GHz with older computers (which means 5GHz is unnecessary, because my internet caps out at 100).
* Gives pretty graphs that shows in real time who's abusing your internet, and allows you to rate-limit them on the spot. More broadly, you can also rat...view more

Wow what a difference

I bought this to upgrade a Netgear nighthawk R7000 and it has made a huge improvement. I am on Voyager gigabit fibre, and all TV in the house comes through this connection. The old router was struggling with multiple hd streams and the increase in devices generally, phones laptops etc. The router is located downstairs in the living room, the netgear would barely be able to provide a 2ghz connection to the upstairs opposite corner of the house.

In searching for a new router my intention was to improve wireless coverage, improve throughput for more devices and i also wanted a router that would provide VPN Support (considering ExpressVPN or...view more

Easy "ish" to setup, great performance.

I say easyish because it has the same setup as the previous model that I also used to own. It is a bit difficult as you need to talk with your internet provider to get the details for setting it up for the first time (and the providers do not train their staff to work with third-party routers). So it may take a bit of fiddling around with to set up your internet connection the first time you turn it on.

It performs great, I had the previous unit - RT-AC88U which had an issue of not putting out 5.0 GHz. This unit doesn't have a problem. It might be a little overkill for my 70 square metre flat, but it definitely covers every device in the h...view more

Great performance, set up frustrating

Ordered during lock down 4 to replace an Asus RT_AC86U purchased in October 2018 which failed. Set up to SPARK fibre was more frustrating than with AC86U. Although "same" steps to follow took longer to get running. Probably because of Covid staffing, support from PBTECH not up to expected standard. Once running this unit uses full available speed, handles multiple simultaneous connections with no drop off, and has very good signal strength throughout the house.

Really good after some configuration

I've owned the RT-AX88U for just over a month. I purchased it when my wife's new ax210 chipset based laptop was repeatedly dropping connections on my old wifi ap (a Unify ac pro).
The wifi is absolutely amazing on this router, no cons I can think of. However it'll need some config and possibly uncrowded airwaves to get the full speed.

Pros:
1. Most importantly we have no more dropped connections.
2. The wifi is fast, on speedtest.net from about 4m distance the laptop is getting 930Mbps down and 467Mbps up, almost maxing out our 1Gbps down and 500Gbps up internet connection.
3. Many configuration options, full control over traffic etc, ...view more

This is a superb router

I did lots of research on Wifi 6 routers

The power is sublime. It reaches 4 houses away which is great when visiting neighbours
