Product Overview The RT-AC5300 instantly takes your wireless network to the next level. The latest NitroQAM™ technology boosts the Wi-Fi speeds for everyone and every device on your busy network. With the widest-ever Wi-Fi coverage, tri-band Smart Connect, enterprise-level link aggregation, revolutionary 8-client MU-MIMO plus total security, RT-AC5300 is as well-rounded as it is top-of-the-line.

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-AC5300 this optimization is free , so users can enjoy the results on virtually every competitive multi-player online game — at no extra cost!

Cross-Platform Compatibility
Network speed impacts every device you game with on every platform you game on. The ASUS RT-AC5300 delivers bandwidth and coverage for all your gaming devices, from consoles to PCs to mobile devices, and supports every operating system, including Windows®, Mac OS® and Linux®.

Bandwidth for All
RT-AC5300 is the master of entertaining, able to support as many devices as people you invite over and can even maintain multiple simultaneous Full HD 1080P streams. Beyond content consumption, the RT-AC5300 enables a smarter home, supporting IP cameras, thermostats and a variety of devices you don't even own yet.

Unbeatable Wi-Fi Coverage
With a four-transmit, four-receive (4T4R) antenna design, both Wi-Fi range and signal stability improve dramatically. AiRadar beamforming further focuses the Wi-Fi signal on your devices, making your Wi-Fi faster, clearer and stronger.

Tri-band Smart Connect – Automatically Chooses the Best Band Available for You
Tri-band Smart Connect intelligently assigns each device to best available band. This means you get better range and faster, more reliable connections consistently without the need to manually re-connect to the best band available.

Powerful Processor, Faster Transfers
RT-AC5300's top-of-the-line 1.4 GHz dual-core processor brings its computational capability to the next level. USB data transfers enjoy up to over 100 MB/s speed and the router download/upload speed (WAN-LAN throughput) up to 1800 Mbps.

8X Capacity Wi-Fi with Revolutionary MU-MIMO Technology
MU-MIMO gives every compatible device6 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-AC5300 is able to connect up to 8 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.

Your Sharing Center
With built-in USB 3.0 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 3.0, you can enjoy up to 10X faster data transfer speeds. Features Wireless-AC5300 Tri-Band Gigabit Router
