ASUS RT-AX56U AX1800 WiFi 6 Dual-Band WiFi Router, Lifetime Internet Security with AiProtection, Whole-Home WiFi with AiMesh, MU-MIMO, OFDMA, VPN Setting


Enjoy low-latency, stable connections, and faster throughput with the RT-AX56U AX1800 Wireless Dual-Band Gigabit Router from ASUS. This router utilizes the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands, 80 MHz bandwidth, and 1024-QAM modulation to boost total network speeds to 1800 Mb/s. With 2×2 MU-MIMO and OFDMA technologies, the RT-AX56U can deliver two dedicated upload/download streams per band, and pushes data to all connected devices simultaneously rather than in sequence. Additional features include free lifetime security, mobile power saving technology, and AiMesh whole-home network support. This makes the RT-AX56U an ideal choice for a busy home with many devices, and a need for fast, stable wireless internet access.

AiProtection Pro delivers free lifetime security powered by the professionals at Trend Micro. You get regular, automatically updated security signatures for peace of mind, protection from online threats, and control over online access. Parental controls give you a variety of controls to keep your kids safe, such as blocking access to specific websites and mobile app types.

As OFDMA sub-divides data for simultaneous transmission, it also divides channels into sub-channels. These sub-channels have a smaller bandwidth to enable them to travel farther throughout your home.

Using Target Wake Time (TWT) technology, the RT-AX56U can help preserve the battery life of your mobile devices. Rather than devices always being in standby mode, waiting for signals from the router, TWT schedules designated intervals for the devices to wake up and receive information. This ability lets mobile devices sleep, reducing power consumption.

With support for ASUS’s AiMesh technology, the RT-AX56U can be combined with additional RT-AX56U routers, or other AiMesh-compatible routers and extenders, to fully blanket your home with powerful Wi-Fi signals. The connected mesh network gives you the ability to use a single SSID so you can roam your home with mobile devices without having to reconnect to different networks. It also lets you set up an SSID per band (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) for more manual control of how your devices connect.
