Synology RT2600AC overview

  • 1Description

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.
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

    Synology RT2600AC reviews

    RT2600AC AC-2600 Wireless Dual-Band Gigabit Router is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 85.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best router I've ever owned! I've been running the rt2600ac for almost two weeks now and I couldn't be happier. Rock stable with firmware that no other vendor, that I know about, is even close to developing. Running almost 15 devices in my home with smartconnect enabled and I get 135Mbps down and 22Mbps up all throughout my house. I'm also running intrusion prevention package, just detection, and no impact on performance. I should also mention that the rt2600ac replaced my Asus 87u and it outperforms that device on all fronts from my experience. Shipping was fast to Canada and a great price thanks to bhphotovideo. I will definitely by synology routers in the future and highly recommend them to router geeks as well as novice users.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Router, Terrible Support I've had this router up and running for about 2 months. Initially, I loved it. I still really enjoy the web UI and the features and functionality of the router. However, after taking an update, the router slowed down and stopped working. I attempted a factory reset and now it no longer turns on at all. This is where the trouble starts. Synology support is a nightmare. Email tickets go unanswered for days, and their phone support can't help you until you've done an email ticket. Then, they don't pay for return shipping for your defective product, that's your responsibility. They supposedly do provide return shipping labels for some products, but not basic and inexpensive ones like this (direct quote from phone support). Replacement products are also sent via ups ground. Any upgrade to shipping is up to you to pay, and it is a whopping $110 dollar up-charge to get overnight shipping for a router. That is just criminal. I went with synology because I recognized the name as a respected one, and the hardware itself was great for the price. That said, if I had it to do over again I would find another brand. Virtually any of them would have a better customer support experience than this, and most likely hardware that lasts longer than 2 months of use. Overall, one of, if not the worst, customer service experiences I've ever had.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Synology RT2600AC I bought this to upgrade from the Synology 1900AC. Pros Faster CPU gives better response time while in SRM Cons Range no better than the 1900 RT and is less on the 2.4 GHz band.5GHZ band loses connectivity. I have to reboot the router at least once a day to be able to get back on line. Running intrusion detection may be a issue. I wish I had stayed with the RT1900 and saved my money, very disappointed after reading all the great reviews and then having so many issues and lossy wifi range. I have two Synology NAs and love the products. will continue to work with this router and maybe new updates will help.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from RT2600ac es un gran producto para usuarios avanzados S, hay routers inalmbricos ms baratos para uso domstico. Sin embargo, si desea ms control y funciones adicionales, entonces un Synology RT2600ac es un router para usted. Las razones por las que compr este router fueron: 1) La capacidad de agregar un disco duro USB de gran tamao como NAS de nivel de entrada. 2) El paquete Cloud Station de Synology que me permite sincronizar archivos desde dispositivos Mac y iOS sin tener que pagar Dropbox u otros para un almacenamiento extra. 3) El paquete de Proteccin de Intrusin de Synology que proporciona una defensa de primera lnea ante de el cortafuegos, que est en mi Mac. 4) El paquete VPN Plus de Synology.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok for a router Looked forward to receiving the RT2600ac router. I have experience with other brand routers, but this one looked like it had the power and memory to be really useful. I use the port forwarding and firewall as well as the VPN.� They were all easy to setup and use.� The only shortfall was identifying the modem. I have a DSL modem and the router fails to connect to it on power up, found you have to reboot the modem every time the router is rebooted. May be a real problem if a power cycle happens while I am away from home. Almost returned the router at this point, but am waiting on tech support to see if the issue can be corrected.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Router I ever had I bought this router to replace a Dlink 1200 one. The Dlink was OK but I was looking for something with more management options and better performance. As far as performance goes, the 2.4GHZ has more range and higher bitrate in every corner of my house I get at least 150mbs or more (where the Dlink was 48mbs). Also, with this router I can manage internet access rules per device meaning I can cut off internet on my kids Ipods and Ipad while continuing surfing the web on my laptop. Also, getting a report on the daily usage of what device surfed what is great. Highly recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Amazing! RT 2600AC is blazing fast and stable. SRM and software options put this router above Netgear and Asus and even puts gamer centric routers like the Net Duma to shame. Synology's decision to use the chipset in the RT 2600AC is by far the BEST AC WiFi on the market. DNS, Intrusion, Traffic control, Auto 5-2.4 ghz, the ability to dial in the strength of signals, support for NAS and external hard drives and so much more! Do not hesitate on this router! There a reason this sells out so fast!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Router I am very impressed with the RT2600AC Wireless Dual-Band Gigabit Router. It was very easy to setup and update the firmware. It was so much easier than the troublesome TP-Link Archer AC1900 that I replaced. The Synology Router firmware does not require compression software. You just click find update and load it with the control software that is included. The dual bands are more than capable of handling many devices with ease. I have the Blast 150 Mbps package and my Xfinity speeds are now 230-240 Mbps. I am extremely pleased and highly recommend this router. I will buy Synology again. B&H is also fantastic.
