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-AX82U'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 8.4X 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.***
  • 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-AX82U 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.

Every device is protected with RT-AX82U, and you can keep an eye on everything that's happening on your network via the handy mobile app.

This is the best thing I have ever purchased!! I work from home and my system would constantly disconnect. I was at a local store and decided to give it a shot. NO MORE DISCONNECTS!!! We are a family full of gamers and streaming. I am able to work while others are connected playing games and there are no problems at all!! I have even suggested the router to others within my company!!

is this a router modem combo?
Austinoo1 year ago
If you have fios but not if you use a cable. I had fios and plugged this straight into the wall and worked perfectly. I moved and had to buy a cable modem to plug this into.

I have Verizon FiOS, have multiple devices running at night and weekends the most, but wifi signal gets weak on the 2nd floor even if I am the only one home. Do I still need the modem and will the signal reach or do I need extender
KimB518 months ago
You may need an extender, it depends on the layout of your home. What is key is that the router is placed fairly centrally.
