ASUS RT-AC86U IEEE 802.11ac Ethernet Wireless Router

Features

  • Double Gaming Boost - Enjoy low-latency online gaming with boosted internet and home network performance!
  • 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 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, 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.

Excellent wifi 5 router
rated 4.0 out of 5

Excellent wifi 5 router and very fast. Best of all, it's reliable and the admin configuration software works great. Four star rating due to a small problem with the USB drive (would only read, not read/write). But it was fixed with a removal and then reinsert and a couple reboots of the router. Now works perfect.

I had this router for 4+ years and loved it, recently the 2.4 ghz wifi flat out quit. As we know the 5ghz does not have great range and is not intended too, i was truly sad when the 2.4 quick. Until then I loved this router, I would still recommend it to friends to purchase it.

Works almost exactly as the RT-AC86U it replaced. So much so, it took the backup configuration file I made in 2019. It made migrating this new device into the mesh network simple and quick. Sad to lose the tiny little white or red LEDs that actually provided some useful information, but otherwise, it's working great.
