About the ASUS RT-AC86U Gigabit WiFi Gaming Router
Ultrafast Wi-Fi with NitroQAM
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 delivers the ultimate 5GHz quad-stream (4×4) speeds of up to 2167Mbps, giving RT-AC86U combined total speed of 2917Mbps. So everyone on your network can enjoy smooth streaming and low-latency online gaming!
Powerful Hardware, Ultimate Performance
With the increasing popularity of 5GHz Wi-Fi devices, a router needs to deliver the maximum 5GHz bandwidth possible, with reliable long-range performance. ASUS RT-AC86U has an extra internal 5GHz antenna to provide the ultimate 5GHz quad-stream performance, while RangeBoost significantly improves mid- to long-distance Wi-Fi coverage. Additionally, RT-AC86U’s top-of-the-line 1.8GHz 64bit dual-core processor brings its computational capability to the next level, enabling USB data transfers of up to 110MB/s and router download/upload speeds (WAN-LAN throughput) of up to 1600Mbps.
Multiple Capacity Wi-Fi
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. In fact, ASUS 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.

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 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.
All your family members, young or old, are exposed to the dangers of internet every single moment they’re online. Disguised cyber threats can sneak in to steal your private data, or your kids may accidentally encounter inappropriate content during their ever-growing screen time. ASUS RT-AC86U includes Advanced Parental Controls to give you total peace of mind, with AiProtection Pro – commercial grade security for your home network and comprehensive, easy control of the online experience for each family member and each device, all via the mobile app.
