ASUS Blue Cave overview

  • 1Description

Designed for Amazon Alexa & Echo integration and well-suited for use in smart homes, the Blue Cave AC2600 Dual-Band Wireless Router from ASUS features 802.11ac 2.4 & 5 GHz 4x4 Wi-Fi for improved network throughput and data speeds up to 2600 Mb/s, thanks to its four internal antennas that broadcast an 800 Mb/s 802.11n signal and a 1734 Mb/s 802.11ac signal. For those who also require wired network connections, there are four Gigabit Ethernet ports. This router receives its signal from one Gigabit WAN port. If you're concerned about online security, ASUS has equipped the Blue Cave with WPA2-PSK, WPA-PSK, WPA-Enterprise, WPA2-Enterprise, and WPS encryption, as well as a firewall, parental controls, and more.

ASUS' Blue Cave AC2600 Dual-Band Wireless Router supports 802.11a. 802.11b, 802.11g, 802.11n, and 802.11ac, as well as IPv4 and IPv6 protocols. In addition to its wireless router functionality, it can also be set as access point or media bridge. It is compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux devices, and is powered using an included AC adapter that operates using 110-240 VAC at 50-60 Hz. Also included is an RJ45 cable.

General Features

Built to Perform, Styled to Be Seen
The ASUS Blue Cave is built to perform and styled to be seen. Combining the power of Intel Wi-Fi and ASUS engineering innovation, the user-friendly Blue Cave gives you smooth streaming and lag-free gaming around your home. And with advanced ASUS AiProtection security and Family Overview parental controls, you can rest easy knowing everyone is safe and secure online.
Powerful Wi-Fi for Smart Homes
Up to 2600 Mb/s concurrent Wi-Fi speeds, an Intel Dual-Core CPU, a 4x4 Dual-Band designed, four Gigabit LAN ports, and a 5G downlink throughput.
Wi-Fi Engineered to Enhance Your Home
Blue Cave's styling and performance are both made possible by ASUS' Wi-Fi engineering. Internal antennas are often a compromise: they allow a neater external design, but they can be prone to performance-sapping interference. On ASUS' Blue Cave, the four fully-optimized antennas actually outperform some external antennas. The location and orientation of the antennas relative to each other and to the internal circuitry was carefully decided by experiment to give improved Wi-Fi signals in all directions, and the widest coverage was attained with three vertical antennas and one horizontal. The ultra-slim circuit board and custom graphene-coated heatsinks were specially designed to make best use of the internal space.
Keeping Cool with Nanotechnology
The dual ASUS-designed heatsinks on the main circuit board help maximize the surface area available for cooling, while taking full advantage of the shape of the interior space. These advanced heatsinks use a graphene coating with heat-dissipation properties that perform better than standard heatsink materials.
Compact Design
To enable the Blue Cave's compact and unobtrusive styling, the circuit board is half the size of a normal 4x4 router board, and it's separated into two overlapping sections. Special electronic engineering techniques were employed to avoid the signal-leakage problems often associated with such an arrangement.
Make the Internet a Safer Place for Everyone
All your family members, young or old, are exposed to the dangers of the Internet every single moment they're online. Disguised cyber threats can sneak in to steal your private data, or your kids may accidentally encounter inappropriate content during their ever-growing screen time. The Blue Cave includes Advanced Parental Controls to give you total peace of mind, with commercial-grade security for your home network and comprehensive, user-friendly control of the online experience for each family member and each device, all via the mobile app.
Commercial-Grade Home Network Security
ASUS AiProtection, powered by Trend Micro, is built into the Blue Cave to add comprehensive protection to your home network. With AiProtection, all your connected devices, including smart home (IoT) appliances, are protected to help prevent your personal data from being compromised.
No Subscription Fee
Some routers only offer 3 years of protection, but ASUS AiProtection has you covered for the life of your product.
Block Access to Malicious Websites
AiProtection uses Trend Micro's official database to identify and block known malicious sites, preventing infection even before you click.
Protection Against Attacks
Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) blocks common Internet-based attacks.
Infection Detection and Blocking
Even if an already-infected device is connected to the Blue Cave, AiProtection helps prevents personal data on the device from being compromised.
Advanced Parental Controls
ASUS' Blue Cave lets you keep a watchful eye on your family's Internet usage, and decide how much Internet time or what apps each family member is allowed. State-of-the-art parental controls let you block specific categories of mobile apps and websites, and apply these settings to all devices belonging to a family member, while allowing free access to the rest of the Internet.
Complete Device Security & Complimentary Virus Protection
The Blue Cave includes exclusive added protection for your devices - PCs, smartphones, and tablets - even when they're not connected to your home network. With Blue Cave, you can rest assured that your devices always have full virus protection, wherever you use them. Each Blue Cave router includes a year's free Trend Micro Mobile Security for two mobile devices and Trend Micro Titanium Antivirus+ for two Windows systems.

The redemption of the activation codes terminates on December 31, 2018 at 11:59pm (UTC+8).
Get Ready for a Smarter Home
Your home is getting smarter than ever, so your router should be smart too. The Blue Cave works with IFTTT and Amazon Alexa, so you can integrate Blue Cave into your smart home with ease to make your life easier. For example, you can just tell Alexa to suspend the Wi-Fi so you can have a family dinner without interruptions. Or use IFTTT to get an automatic email notification when your kids get home. Hosting a party? Enable the guest Wi-Fi network just for your friends, and you can even change the color of your home lighting when they connect.
Network Control Your Way
The Blue Cave takes the pain out of managing your home network. It's easy to set up and easy to keep an eye on what's happening, via the intuitive Windows interface or the ASUS Router app. With just a few taps or clicks, you can see when new devices connect or when new updates become available, and change settings to suit your needs.
Mobile App
The ASUS Router app is a solid way to manage your network from a mobile device. It includes controls for all the most important features and gives you an at-a-glance overview of what's happening.
Web Interface
The intuitive ASUSWRT web-based interface gives you control over all the Blue Cave's features and settings. It's great when you want to explore the full capabilities of the Blue Cave.
