The ASUS RT-AC56U leads the way in next generation routers, offering dual-band Gigabit wireless with 802.11 ac Wi-Fi. Its powerful dual-core CPU and DDR3 RAM provides the best performance in both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. The 5 GHz band works at up to 867 Mbps, while the 2.4 GHz frequency tops 300 Mbps, serves an incredible combined bandwidth of 1167 Mbps. That's three times the speed of standard 2 x 2 wireless-N routers! Plus, a USB 3.0 port means data transfers at up to ten times the speed of USB 2.0, and the RT-AC56U comes dressed up in the classy black diamond design.

The exclusive ASUSWRT interface delivers 30-second setup, multiple SSIDs, and IPv6 support to further enhance networking, while USB 3.0/USB 2.0 ports instantly turn the RT-AC56U into a file, 3G/4G sharing, enhanced media server, VPN, and printer server for the ultimate in multi-role router functionality.

World's fastest Wi-Fi: 802.11ac
Powered by 5th generation Wi-Fi, the 802.11ac Broadcom chipset gives the RT-AC56U Superfast Gigabit wireless speeds. Compared with current 802.11n, the RT-AC56U delivers up to 867 Mbps at 5 GHz, which is 3x faster than previous 802.11n 2 x 2 router! The upgraded bandwidth has the higher capacity you need to increase Wi-Fi enjoyment at home. With notebooks, desktops, pads, and smartphones now all Wi-Fi-reliant, it's time to upgrade to the next generation so you can expand you connectivity now and in future.

AiRadar improves Wi-Fi performance
ASUS AiRadar intelligently strengthens wireless connectivity using 802.11ac beamforming technology, high power amplification, and exclusive ASUS RF fine-tuning. This ensures extended coverage, dynamic data speed increases, and enhanced stability.

Dual-band connectivity for lag-free entertainment
Delivering 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz concurrent bands at up to 300 Mbps and 867 Mbps, respectively, the RT-AC56U has a total speed of up to 1167 Mbps, and maintains complete stability. You can perform basic tasks like web browsing and file downloading on the 2.4 GHz band, while simultaneously allowing multiple devices to stream in HD or support online gaming and other demanding applications smoothly on the clearer 5 GHz band.

ASUSWRT - powerful functions and extra-easy management
With the ASUSWRT dashboard UI, you can setup, monitor, and control network applications all in one intuitive area. The whole dashboard interface lets you manage all clients and settings via a single graphical interface, and provides 1-click updates.

Highest USB speeds and double the connectivity for easier sharing
SuperSpeed USB 3.0 features data transfers up 10x faster than USB 2.0, which is also included. Two USB ports make the RT-AC56U perfect for file, multimedia, and 3G/4G sharing, while ASUS AiDisk offers remote access and a wide range of compatible devices content streaming.

Discrete and secure Wi-Fi networks via guest access
The RT-AC56U supports up to three wireless networks over the 2.4 GHz band and three over the 5 GHz band, so you can set up usage times and limit access with advanced controls, including parental settings.
