Product Description

ASUS RT-AC86U Dual Band Wireless Router AC2900 WiFi with 4-port Gigabit LAN UK Plug

Whether you're gaming online in a heated competition or streaming a live event in 4K UHD, lag and buffering are simply not an option. 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.

Features

Dual-band (2.4 + 5 GHz) AC2900 wireless router with the latest 802.11ac MU-MIMO technology for data transfer speeds up to 2900 Mbps

1.8GHz 64bit Dual-Core processor optimizes network traffic and connectivity speeds from the USB 3.1 Gen1 and 4x Gigabit LAN ports

Designed for lag-free online gaming and flawless 4K UHD streaming with WTFast® Game Accelerator and Adaptive QoS

AiProtection Powered by Trend Micro™ provides built-in 24/7 protection from external attacks and threats, neutralizing them before they reach your network or connected devices

Manage your network with the ASUS Router app – setup your network, manage usage and parental controls, even get instant notifications about important network-based events

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 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 Revolutionary MU-MIMO Technology

MU-MIMO gives every compatible device3 its own dedicated full-speed Wi-Fi connection, so that multiple devices can connect at the same time without slowing down the network.

In fact, 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 Wi-Fi signal on your devices, making your Wi-Fi faster, clearer and stronger.

Powerful Processor, Faster Transfers

RT-AC86U's top-of-the-line 1.8 GHz dual-core processor brings its computational capability to the next level. USB data transfers enjoy up to over 110 MB/s speed and the router download/upload speed (WAN-LAN throughput) up to 1600 Mbps2.

AiProtection

Your Digital Playground is Protected

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 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

Control Your Network Anywhere

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.

Connectivity Options

RT-AC86U has four Gigabit LAN ports, USB 2.0 port and USB 3.1 Gen 1 port. Smart TV, game consoles, NAS storage devices and more can now have their own dedicated ports, making RT-AC86U your digital home hub.

Your Sharing Center

With built-in USB 3.1 Gen 1 and USB 2.0 ports, you can connect USB-enabled devices, such as external storage drives, printers, or a 3G/4G dongle to your ASUS router and share them conveniently with other users via Wi-Fi. And with USB 3.1 Gen 1, you can enjoy up to 10X faster data transfer speeds.
