Eliminate nearly all network lag with the RT-AC86U AC2900 Wireless Dual-Band Gigabit Gaming Router from ASUS.
This gaming router supports NitroQAM (1024-QAM) technology with
wireless data transfer rates of up to 2917 Mbps. Gamers can also take
advantage of both Adaptive QoS and a dedicated Game Accelerator to
prioritize gaming traffic on the network and enjoy smoother gaming with
Gamers Private Network (GPN) support from WTFast.
When the games are over, the RT-AC86U still has a lot to offer. Built-in
MU-MIMO technology with 3x3 support on the 2.4 GHz frequency and 4x4
support on the 5 GHz frequency gives multiple users their own dedicated
pathway to the network. Coverage has also been greatly improved, thanks
to built-in beamforming technology, which provides a more localized
signal beamed directly to connected devices. To back up the enhanced
network capabilities of the ASUS RT-AC86U, ASUS has included a 1.8 GHz
The ASUS RT-AC86U comes compatible with the 802.11ac Wi-Fi network
standard and operates on both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequencies
supporting data transfer rates of up to 2900 Mbps. In addition to
enhanced wireless connectivity, users can connect Ethernet-enabled
devices to any of the four Gigabit Ethernet ports. This ASUS router even
comes equipped with a single USB 2.0 port and a single USB 3.0 port,
making it easy to connect USB-compatible peripherals to your network.
Once configured, ASUS offers a variety of utilities to manage your
network. With the ASUS Router App, you can control your network right
from your smartphone while the ASUSWRT dashboard offers an intuitive
user interface to control virtually every aspect of your network.
The RT-AC86U supports ASUS' own AiMesh technology to create a
whole-home Wi-Fi system with enhanced performance. In testing using the
ASUS RT-AC86U router, a network speed of 463 Mb/s was achieved over
long distances, even after the signal from an off-the-shelf multi-hub
system was out of range. This means that with AiMesh, your network can
cope with demanding tasks like 4K UHD streaming even at the remotest
corners of your home or garden.
Improved Speed and Connectivity
The ASUS RT-AC86U is designed for gaming, with enhanced 2917
Mbps Wi-Fi speeds, MU-MIMO technology and powerful game-boosting
features including the WTFast game accelerator and Adaptive QoS.
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.
Boost Home Network with Adaptive QoS
Prioritize games to make the most of your network bandwidth.
Boost Online Gaming with Game Accelerator
Enjoy smooth, reliable gaming with GPN from WTFAST.
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
the 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
Multiple Capacity Wi-Fi with MU-MIMO Technology
MU-MIMO gives every compatible device its own dedicated
full-speed Wi-Fi connection, so that multiple devices can connect at the
same time without slowing down the network.
The 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
With ASUS innovative antenna design and the new Range Boost
technology, both Wi-Fi range and signal stability improve dramatically.
AiRadar further focuses the Wi-Fi signal on your devices, making your
Wi-Fi faster, clearer and stronger.
Powerful Processor, Faster Transfers
The RT-AC86U's 1.8 GHz dual-core processor enables USB data
transfers up to 110 MB/s and router download/upload speed (WAN-LAN
throughput) up to 1600 Mbps.
The 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
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 the 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
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.
