Gaming Without Limits
Prioritize via Gaming Port

The dedicated gaming port on RT-AX86U automatically prioritizes any wired device connected to it. No complex configuration is needed, just connect your gaming PC or console to the special LAN port to give you a fast, stable connection that's always at the head of the queue.
Prioritize via Gear Accelerator

Gear Accelerator lets you prioritize devices wirelessly via RT-AX86U's online control panel. The simple interface lets you prioritize devices to help boost their speed and prevent them fighting over bandwidth with other devices.
Eliminate WiFi Congestion

Connect your devices to the 5 GHz band and avoid the often-congested 2.4 GHz band, while enjoying up to 5.6X faster WiFi speeds. Also, optional Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS) unlocks up to 15 of the least-congested channels on the 5GHz band to give you even more bandwidth for gaming.***
GeForce NOW is NVIDIA's cloud-based gaming service that delivers real-time GeForce-powered gameplay straight from the cloud to all your devices. With GeForce NOW, you can connect to your store accounts and stream your library of games, or play your favorite free-to-play games available on the service. GeForce NOW recommended routers ensure up to 90% of WiFi bandwidth is dedicated to gaming and undergo rigorous testing to deliver the best possible experience and lowest latency for cloud gaming.
Lightning-Fast 2 Gbps Internet

RT-AX86U is designed to break down all the barriers that can slow down your gaming. It supports up to a 2 Gbps internet connection, so you can unlock the full potential of high-speed networking for both wired and WiFi connections.
Internet Without Limits

RT-AX86U can unlock up to 2 Gbps of internet bandwidth by aggregating two separate 1 Gbps internet services using the WAN port and a 1 Gbps LAN port, doubling the maximum internet connection speed to 2 Gbps! This massive internet bandwidth can then be shared via WiFi 6 or via the 2.5 Gbps wired network port. For extra versatility, the 2.5 Gbps port can be used for either WAN or LAN connections.
Remove Network Bottlenecks

Adaptive QoS (Quality of Service) lets you keep your network running smoothly by prioritizing network traffic. You can prioritize applications such as streaming video or web surfing, as well as gaming. It's the perfect ally for delivering low-latency WiFi anywhere in your home.
Whole-Home Gaming

Does your router leave you with WiFi dead spots? RT-AX86U supports ASUS AiMesh, a unique mesh-networking technology that creates a whole-home network using multiple ASUS routers. With easy central control and seamless roaming, even non-experts can set it up with any AiMesh-capable routers you own. Say goodbye to WiFi dead zones!
Commercial-grade Security for Your Home

Home network security is crucial when you have multiple connected devices, and even more so when there are devices without anti-virus capabilities such as IoT devices. RT-AX86U includes lifetime free AiProtection Pro, including the latest WPA3 security protocol and advanced Parental Controls. Every device is protected with RT-AX86U, and you can keep an eye on everything that's happening on your network via the handy mobile app.
