ASUS RT-AC86U overview

  • 1Description

This B&H Kit includes two ASUS RT-AC86U AC2900 Wireless Dual-Band Gigabit Gaming Routers. With two dual-band Gigabit gaming routers you can provide maximum Wi-Fi coverage to large spaces such as large homes or small offices. Each router supports the 802.11ac Wi-Fi protocol with wireless data transfer rates of up to 2900 Mb/s and comes equipped with four Gigbait Ethernet ports.

  • 2 x ASUS RT-AC86U AC2900 Wireless Dual-Band Gigabit Gaming Router

    Eliminate nearly all network lag with the RT-AC86U AC2900 Wireless Dual-Band Gigabit Gaming Router from ASUS. This gaming router supports NitroQAM (1024-QAM) technology with wireless data transfer rates of up to 2917 Mbps. Gamers can also take advantage of both Adaptive QoS and a dedicated Game Accelerator to prioritize gaming traffic on the network and enjoy smoother gaming with Gamers Private Network (GPN) support from WTFast.

    When the games are over, the RT-AC86U still has a lot to offer. Built-in MU-MIMO technology with 3x3 support on the 2.4 GHz frequency and 4x4 support on the 5 GHz frequency gives multiple users their own dedicated pathway to the network. Coverage has also been greatly improved, thanks to built-in beamforming technology, which provides a more localized signal beamed directly to connected devices. To back up the enhanced network capabilities of the ASUS RT-AC86U, ASUS has included a 1.8 GHz dual-core processor.

    The ASUS RT-AC86U comes compatible with the 802.11ac Wi-Fi network standard and operates on both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequencies supporting data transfer rates of up to 2900 Mbps. In addition to enhanced wireless connectivity, users can connect Ethernet-enabled devices to any of the four Gigabit Ethernet ports. This ASUS router even comes equipped with a single USB 2.0 port and a single USB 3.0 port, making it easy to connect USB-compatible peripherals to your network.

    Once configured, ASUS offers a variety of utilities to manage your network. With the ASUS Router App, you can control your network right from your smartphone while the ASUSWRT dashboard offers an intuitive user interface to control virtually every aspect of your network.

    AiMesh Technology
    The RT-AC86U supports ASUS' own AiMesh technology to create a whole-home Wi-Fi system with enhanced performance. In testing using the ASUS RT-AC86U router, a network speed of 463 Mb/s was achieved over long distances, even after the signal from an off-the-shelf multi-hub system was out of range. This means that with AiMesh, your network can cope with demanding tasks like 4K UHD streaming even at the remotest corners of your home or garden.
    Improved Speed and Connectivity
    The ASUS RT-AC86U is designed for gaming, with enhanced 2917 Mbps Wi-Fi speeds, MU-MIMO technology and powerful game-boosting features including the WTFast game accelerator and Adaptive QoS.
    NitroQAM Technology
    NitroQAM (1024-QAM) technology on the RT-AC86U delivers a combined 2917 Mbps Wi-Fi speed, ensuring everyone on your network can enjoy smooth streaming and low-latency online gaming.
    Double Gaming Boost
    Enjoy low-latency online gaming with boosted internet and home network performance.
    Boost Home Network with Adaptive QoS
    Prioritize games to make the most of your network bandwidth.
    Boost Online Gaming with Game Accelerator
    Enjoy smooth, reliable gaming with GPN from WTFAST.
    Free Game Accelerator Inside
    Ping time and variance are critical technical parameters that affect responsiveness in online gaming, and their values depend heavily on the route game packets take to and from their destination. The Gamers Private Network (GPN) from WTFast automatically performs route optimization, choosing the most efficient route for game packets, resulting in consistently-lower ping time and minimal packet loss. With the RT-AC86U, this optimization is free for accelerating one selectable device at a time, so you can enjoy the results on supported competitive multi-player online games.
    Adaptive QoS - Prioritize Your Game
    Boost your gaming bandwidth with Adaptive QoS (Quality of Service), which allows you to easily prioritize gaming packets and activities. You can even assign full dedicated bandwidth while gaming under gamer solo mode, making RT-AC86U the perfect ally for low-latency gaming anywhere in your home. It supports major consoles including PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PS4 Pro, PlayStation Vita, Wii U, 3DS, and Xbox One.
    Multiple Capacity Wi-Fi with MU-MIMO Technology
    MU-MIMO gives every compatible device its own dedicated full-speed Wi-Fi connection, so that multiple devices can connect at the same time without slowing down the network. The RT-AC86U is able to connect to multiple MU-MIMO-compatible clients at each device's maximum speed simultaneously, unlike standard single-user MIMO where individual devices have to wait for sequential transmissions.
    Unbeatable Coverage
    With ASUS innovative antenna design and the new Range Boost technology, both Wi-Fi range and signal stability improve dramatically. AiRadar further focuses the Wi-Fi signal on your devices, making your Wi-Fi faster, clearer and stronger.
    Powerful Processor, Faster Transfers
    The RT-AC86U's 1.8 GHz dual-core processor enables USB data transfers up to 110 MB/s and router download/upload speed (WAN-LAN throughput) up to 1600 Mbps.
    AiProtection
    The RT-AC86U incorporates ASUS AiProtection, a commercial-grade network security system powered by Trend Micro Smart Home Network. With AiProtection, all connected devices are protected, even if they have no antivirus capability of their own - such as IoT devices. AiProtection blocks common internet-based attacks before they reach the network, and if an infected device is detected on the network, AiProtection instantly blocks it to prevent it sending any personal information to malicious servers.
    Fortified Frontline Network Security
    Networking is only half the equation when it comes to game performance. As AiProtection is integrated in the RT-AC86U and powered by the router, even if a device's security software isn't turned on - to get around blocked games, for example - AiProtection still protects the network from attacks and intrusions, for added peace of mind.
    ASUS Router App
    In your increasingly mobile-enabled life, having control over your network via an app is more important than ever. The new ASUS Router App is built from the ground-up to be both intuitive and robust, all without needing to boot up a PC.
    ASUSWRT - Easily Control Your Network
    The RT-AC86U features the enhanced, intuitive ASUSWRT user interface, which gives you easy access to both the 3-step web-based installation process and a wealth of robust advanced options.

    • At-a-glance view of connected devices
