Product Description

ASUS RT-AX88U - Wireless Dual Band GB Router

Product Features

The era of home Wi-Fi

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 Wi-Fi

RT-AX88U is a 4x4 dual-band Wi-Fi router that provides 160MHz bandwidth and 1024-QAM for dramatically faster wireless connections.


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.


AiMeshPowerful Whole-home Wi-Fi System

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 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!


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.
