  • 1Description
The AC2400 Wireless Dual-Band Gigabit Router from ASUS is a versatile, high-performance router, designed to effectively work with a wide variety of wireless and wired devices on your network. It delivers speeds of up to 1734 Mb/s at 5 GHz, and concurrent 600 Mb/s speeds at 2.4 GHz for a total bandwidth of 2334 Mb/s. This means the router gives you lag-free online gaming, 4K/UHD video streaming, and effortlessly copes with even the most bandwidth-demanding tasks. In addition to this, it features fast file-sharing of large files and low-latency online gaming.

With a separate high-gain antenna for each of the four spatial data streams, this power-packed router gives you true 4x4 multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO) wireless performances and is designed with AiRadar universal beamforming, for unrivaled multi-device performance and wireless signal coverage up to 5000'. It delivers top performance for all your wireless devices, even those using older Wi-Fi standards. As with all ASUS networking products, you get the support with the widest range of device compatibility, plus free firmware updates for years to come, so your router will always be at the forefront.

The router has built-in USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports for up to 10-times faster data transfers to USB storage devices, printer sharing, and 3G/4G dongle support. It has ASUSWRT graphical user interface for easy, CD-free 30-second setup, and hassle-free advanced network control. The router features AiProtection with Trend Micro with triple-strength total network security, plus parental controls, and privacy protection. ASUS AiCloud 2.0 lets you access, sync, share, and stream your files anywhere, on any Internet-connected device.
Dual USB Ports
You can share printers, 3G/4G (HSPA+) cellular dongles, or USB storage devices over your network. With SuperSpeed USB 3.0, transfer speeds are up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0. These ports are widely-spaced for convenient and easy access when using bulky devices. The easy-to-use USB application puts you in full control of tasks for all connected USB devices, including media streaming, file sharing, and file downloads.
Double Dual-Core Processors
When transferring files to and from SuperSpeed USB 3.0 devices over Wi-Fi, it can be up to twice as fast as a router with a single 1.2 GHz dual-core processor.
Up to 50% more Total Throughput in Busy Multi-Client Networks
In tests* simulating a heavily-loaded network with three wired and two wireless clients, PCs, its hardware NAT and dedicated Wi-Fi processor helped it deliver a total throughput (2.4 GHz, 5 GHz, and NAT) up to 50% faster than a typical router with a single 1.2 GHz dual-core processor. 1
Hardware
With its main 1 GHz dual-core processor, the router also has a separate dual-core processor that's dedicated solely to 5 GHz 4x4 Wi-Fi related tasks. So it has Wi-Fi-to-USB transfer speeds that are up to twice as fast*, and can show up to a 50% improvement in total throughput on a heavily-loaded network with multiple clients*. Inspired by the gamer-centric ASUS Republic of Gamers G series notebooks, the router is designed with Stealth Fighter-like curves that exude power and sophistication. It's VESA-mount-compatible too. 2
Optimal Wireless Performance
You can enjoy wireless performance, with 2334 Mb/s of combined 802.11ac and 802.11n bandwidth. With speeds of up to 600 Mb/s on the 2.4 GHz band with Broadcom TurboQAM technology and up to 1734 Mb/s concurrently on the 5 GHz band, the router provides optimal wireless performance. It offers optimal performance for all your notebooks, smartphones, and other wireless devices.
Unrivaled Signal Coverage
Boasting a true four-stream, four-antenna (4x4) design, the router gives you up to 5,000'2 (around 465 m2) of wireless coverage*. That's 33% more than the latest generation tri-band routers*, making it a suitable choice for large homes and multi-floor buildings. 3
Multi-User MIMO Technology
It features MU-MIMO technology, which allows the router to be able to connect to multiple MU-MIMO-compatible clients at each device's maximum speed, simultaneously. This means that as you add more MU-MIMO-enabled devices, the router's capacity actually increases, giving all users the best possible internet experience. 4
AiRadar Beamforming
ASUS AiRadar intelligently strengthens wireless connectivity using 802.11ac universal beamforming technology, high-power amplification, and exclusive ASUS RF fine-tuning. This gives the router up to 33% better coverage than 3-stream antenna designs. In real-world tests, the router lets you stream two 4K videos flawlessly at its maximum range.* 5
Connectivity
For fast wired networking performance, the router comes with a dedicated Gigabit WAN port, five 1000 Mb/s Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports (one of which can be used as a second WAN port), and a hardware-accelerated NAT. The hardware NAT removes the bottleneck between the wired LAN and the internet, allowing you to get the most out of modern fast broadband connections.
Hardware NAT
It removes the bottleneck between the Internet and the home network, giving WAN-to-LAN performance that's between 2-5 times faster than a traditional software-based NAT.
Dual WAN Support
You can configure one of the LAN ports as a WAN to use two internet connections, either to share internet traffic between them or so that one can be used as a backup connection, should one connection fail.
Compatibility
The router is subjected to exhaustive compatibility testing during its development. It works flawlessly with a vast range of adapters, media players, and other wireless devices to ensure optimal performance. It even supports the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 game consoles.
Powerful Online Multi-tasking
With its data pipeline of up to 300,000 data sessions, the router has around 20 times the networking capacity of conventional routers for smooth performance.
Time Machine Support
Supports Time Machine backups with Apple devices.
WPS
Lets you connect devices instantly with a press of the WPS button.
VPN Support
Configure a VPN server or turn your network-connected devices into VPN-enabled clients, with PPTP and OpenVPN protocol support, with no need for paid VPN services or a dedicated VPN server.
User-Friendly Interface
This router features the enhanced ASUSWRT graphical user interface, which gives you easy access to the 30-second, 3-step Web-based installation process*. It also depends where you can configure the AiCloud 2.0 and all advanced options. ASUSWRT is Web-based, so it doesn't need a separate app, or it does not restrict what you can change via mobile devices. You get full access to everything, from any device that can run a Web browser. 6
Network Map
Comprehensive network map shows you at a glance, details of what devices are connected to your router and their connection status.
Multiple Guest Networks
Lets you create up to six secure guest networks with customized access times and online restrictions.
Adaptive QoS
ASUS adaptive Quality of Service (QoS) optimizes inbound and outbound bandwidth on both wired and wireless connections. Applications and tasks can be prioritized easily using drag-and-drop presets for gaming, media streaming, VoIP, web browsing, and file transfers.
AiProtection with Trend Micro for Advanced Security
AiProtection, incorporating state-of-the-art, three-pronged security from Trend Micro, makes this router secure home routers. As well as providing some advanced parental controls in any mainstream router, it detects malware and other intrusions before they reach your PC or device, and alerts you if an infected device is connected. Potential weaknesses such as password strength and operating system vulnerabilities are also monitored, at all times. Moreover, AiProtection even protects Wi-Fi devices without an installable security program such as smart TV, game console, and smart home devices, giving you total peace of mind.
Router Security Scan
Scans your router for any security vulnerabilities and recommends options for improving protection.
Malicious Site Blocking
It restricts access to known malicious websites in the Trend Micro database for always up-to-date protection.
Infected Device Detection and Blocking
It prevents infected devices from communicating personal information and/or infected status to external parties.
Vulnerability Protection
