ASUS RT-AX56U AX1800 Dual Band WiFi 6 (802.11ax) Router

RT-AX56U

The Next GenerationThe ASUS RT-AX56U represents a change in connection standard, this Wi-Fi 6 dual-band router boasting connection speeds of up to 1800 Mbps,it also supports MU-MIMO and OFDMA technologies to efficiently allocate channels and communicate with multiple devices simultaneously. The modern era is filled with connected personal and IoT devices from computers, to light-switches, that has led to an overall increase in networking density that is pushing the current limits of the current Wi-Fi standard, but with the latest Wi-fi 6 (802.11ax) standard providing future-proof technologies, higher networking efficiency, faster wi-fi speeds, increased coverage and improved battery life for connected devices, you'd be crazy not to be getting a signifcantly better networking experience. The RT-AX56U also gives you piece of mind with lifetime free subscription to commerical-grade security (AiProtection) and allows to easily set and manage parental controls to keep your network and your family safe.

Next Generation Wi-Fi Speeds

Next-Gen WiFi SpeedRT-AX56U is a 2x2 dual-band Wi-Fi router that provides 80MHz bandwidth and 1024-QAM for dramatically faster wireless connections. With a total networking speed of about 1800Mbps — 574Mbps on the 2.4GHz band and 1201Mbps on the 5GHz band — RT-AX56U is 1.5X faster than 802.11ac 2x2 dual-band routers.

Multi devices

Built for Multi-device HouseholdsWith 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.

Battery Saver

Better Battery LifeTarget Wake Time (TWT) allows RT-AX56U 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*.

Range

WiFi that Goes FartherWith the latest 802.11ax WiFi standard featuring OFDMA technology, RT-AX56U 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% farther1, resulting in a better WiFi connection throughout your home.
