About the ASUS RT-AX53U WiFi 6 Router
Next-Gen WiFi Speed
ASUS RT-AX53U is a 2×2 dual-band WiFi router that provides 80MHz bandwidth and 1024-QAM for dramatically faster wireless connections. With a total networking speed of about 1800Mbps — 574Mbps on the 2.4GHz band and 1201Mbps on the 5GHz band — RT-AX53U is 1.5X faster than 802.11ac 2×2 dual-band routers.
With a revolutionary combination of OFDMA and MU-MIMO technology, 802.11ax technology provides up to 4X greater network capacity and efficiency in traffic-dense environments. Previous-generation 802.11ac WiFi can only handle one device at a time on each network channel, which is an inefficient use of available bandwidth. OFDMA support in the WiFi 6(802.11ax) standard divides each channel into small sub-channels, allowing signals from multiple devices to be bundled together and transmitted simultaneously, reducing latency for a smoother, more responsive WiFi experience.
WiFi that Goes Farther
With the latest WiFi 6(802.11ax) standard featuring OFDMA technology, RT-AX53U provides increased WiFi signal range and better coverage by dividing each channel into smaller sub-channels. These sub-channels have a smaller bandwidth that enables them to travel up to 80% farther, resulting in a better WiFi connection throughout your home.
Target Wake Time (TWT) allows ASUS RT-AX53U to schedule designated intervals for devices to transmit data. This allows them to sleep when there is no need to wait for a router signal, reducing power consumption by up to 7X for significantly improved battery life.
RT-AX53U 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.
In most cases, your RT-AX53U can deliver smooth, reliable WiFi to every part of your home. But WiFi coverage can be affected by many factors — room layout, construction materials, and even furnishings. ASUS AiMesh is an innovative new router feature that fixes these problems: it creates a whole-home WiFi network using multiple ASUS routers. AiMesh is powerful, flexible and you can use a mix of ASUS router models — protecting your investment! AiMesh gives you time-saving central control, and seamless roaming capability.
ASUS RT-AX53U has one Gigabit WAN port, three Gigabit LAN ports, and USB 2.0 port. Smart TV, game consoles, NAS storage devices, backup internet and more can now have their own dedicated ports, making RT-AX53U your solid digital home hub.
