With Wi-Fi data transfer rates of up to 2.53 Gbps and built-in MIMO technology, the RT2600AC AC-2600 Wireless Dual-Band Gigabit Router from Synology can support multiple data streams simultaneously. Multiple data pathways to the network offer devices like streaming media players, game consoles, smart TVs, tablets, and more their own dedicated connection to the network which greatly reduces lag.

The RT2600AC operates on both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequencies and supports the 802.11ac Wi-Fi network standard to ensure users receive optimal network performance. In addition to enhanced performance standards, this router offers improved reception and range as it comes equipped with four omni-directional high-gain dipole antennas.

If a wired connection is required, the RT2600AC Router comes equipped with four Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports, and a single Gigabit Ethernet WAN port complete with Smart WAN failover support offering network redundancy should one connection fail. Additionally, this Synology router features USB connectivity along with an SD card reader making it possible to provide a variety of storage options to users throughout the network as well as cloud storage capabilities to users connected through the Synology DS Cloud application or the Synology Cloud Station Suite.

VPN Plus
Keep your network's internal services and resources hardened against direct access while still allowing work from home or a remote location with VPNs. Easily deploy a wide range of VPN solutions and manage access permissions and bandwidth allowances.
Synology SSL VPN
Secure and fast, Synology's SSL VPN solution requires minimal setup on Windows, Mac, Ubuntu, and iOS, making rapid deployment as easy as logging into a web portal.
WebVPN
Clientless WebVPN for centralized access to company intranets and web back ends. Easily login from anywhere with only a browser for a secured connection.
Smart WAN
SRM's Smart WAN capability on the RT2600ac supports 2 Gbps Dual WAN combined bandwidth when multiple connections are established. If one of the connections goes offline due to ISP or cable problems, traffic can failover to the other interface. Load balancing can be used in addition to failover, spreading traffic across both interfaces. Policy route allows traffic routing based on destination or source address.
Smart Connect
Not sure which devices should connect to the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands? With Synology's Smart Connect, devices are connected to the most appropriate band automatically, letting users experience simplified management without worry about range or speed issues.
Content Filtering and Monitoring
Application Layer QoS and Traffic Report
Application Layer or Layer 7, Quality of Service control shows the bandwidth consumed by individual applications and devices. Restrict the amount of bandwidth for specific applications, without affecting the rest, and generate traffic usage reports sorted by application and device.

Intelligent Web Filtering and Parental controls
Instead of traditional URL-based web filtering, SRM does so during DNS lookup. Easily block out thousands of sites with built-in Google SafeSearch integration and a constantly updated database of customizable website categories.
Stay Protected
Intrusion Prevention
Intrusion Detection System analyzes network traffic and logs all intrusion attempts, allowing for fine-tuning of your firewall rules with minimal performance impact. Intrusion Prevention System additionally blocks suspicious traffic based on customizable rules.

Security Advisor & QualysGuard
Monitor and check settings and system files for security issues and automatically apply recommended fixes. Synology utilizes the Qualysguard platform to detect and enhance security across all Synology operating systems.

Continuously Updated
Synology is committed to providing fast updates to keep device security up to date for maximum protection. SRM can automatically perform upgrades on a schedule for maximum convenience.
Manage, Sync, Back Up, and More
With an external storage device or SD card, the RT2600ac can become a private cloud server with Synology's Cloud Station Suite, allowing easy access to files, photos, and even backups for multiple devices. Mac users also enjoy Time Machine compatibility. Connect devices with USB 3.0 to take advantage of the RT2600ac's powerful connectivity capabilities.

What is the range of this router?

What is the range of this router?
Asked by: Paul
It will depend on the obstacles you have between the router and the device that is connected to the router and if you are using 2.4GHz or 5GHz bands. The 2.4GHZ band cover a larger area than 5GHz. If you have concrete walls or any other obstacle, the range will drop.

question

Does this router have a consistently low latency without latency spikes on wireless? Is the wireless connection reliable?
Asked by: Jeremy
Short answer - yes it's great, best latency and reliability i've had in a router thus far. I've used in a 2,400 sq ft house with PCs, IOS devices, Sonos, XBox, NS on wireless. The gamers in the house were delighted with the router replacement and I did not need to drop the consoles into a DMZ. I am not sure I know enough to give more details, but here goes: used tracert just to check, results are in very low single digits. Occasionally I see the DNS result on the tracert spike up to 12ms or so, but I might have configured DNS incorrectly. (I use OpenDNS as my Internet DNS server, and then the router's address as the primary DNS on the local network.)
