Should you opt for a wired connection, the RT-AX88U has eight Gigabit LAN ports for your convenience.

Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax)

The RT-AX88U supports Wi-Fi 6, or otherwise known as the 802.11ax standard, which provides higher network efficiency, faster Wi-Fi speeds, greater coverage, and improved battery life for connected devices. This router supports speeds of up to 6000 Mbps: 1148 Mbps on the 2.4 GHz band and 4804 Mbps on the 5 GHz band. When operating on Wi-Fi 5, 802.11ac standards, it can deliver up to 4333 Mbps on the 5 GHz band.

Multi-Device Households

With a combination of OFDMA (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access) and MU-MIMO technology, 802.11ax provides up to four times the network capacity and efficiency in traffic-dense environments. OFDMA technology divides each channel into small sub-channels to allow signals from multiple devices to be bundled together and transmitted simultaneously.

Power Saving

Target Wake Time (TWT) enables the RT-AX88U to set designated intervals for devices to transmit data, allowing devices to enter the sleep state until it's their turn, further reducing power consumption and extending battery life.

Adaptive QoS & wtfast

Adaptive QoS prioritizes game packets for a more fluid experience while wtfast uses the shortest path between you and the game server to minimize ping and lag.

Commercial-Grade Security

The RT-AX88U comes with AiProtection Pro, which features automatic security updates to keep your devices and personal data protected. It also has parental controls should you want to block specific websites and mobile app types.

Wired or Wireless

With eight Gigabit LAN ports, the RT-AX88U can also be used with wired devices such as NAS systems, desktop computers, and switches.

Reliable Wireless Connectivity

The RT-AX88U features specially designed antennas, AiRadar beamforming, and RangeBoost technology to increase coverage and stability.

Asus AiMesh

If one router isn't enough to cover your whole home, the RT-AX88U supports Asus AiMesh, which lets you connect multiple Asus routers to form a mesh network for increased coverage.

If I have another asus router but a non wifi 6 model, can it still work with the mesh? and what type of signal will it provide? Will it expand the same wifi 6 quality?
Asked by: Vince
If you plan to use Asus Mesh setup it only supports limited routers so check compatibility of the other router. If you don't mind setting up manually and are comfortable with setting up your own mesh system, it should work. But you will not get all functionalities (management). Will it expand WiFi6 quality: Definitely NO. You need WiFi6 capable unit for expansion of that band else it will just work at whatever the max band and speed it supports. I mean no disrespect, but if you are asking this question it probably is good idea to avoid going this route to avoid all the frustrations and efforts you will have to go through to setup your network.
