Asus RT-AC88U Dual Band Wireless-AC3100 Gigabit Router

RT-AC88U instantly takes your wireless network to the next level. The latest NitroQAM™ technology boosts the Wi-Fi speeds for everyone and everything on your busy network. With the widest-ever Wi-Fi coverage, lightning-fast USB and WAN/LAN speed plus total security and 8 Gigabit LAN ports, the RT-AC88U is as well-rounded as it is top-of-the-line.

NitroQAM™ Technology - Seamless Experience

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 on the RT-AC88U delivers a combined 3167 Mbps Wi-Fi speed, ensuring everyone on your network can enjoy smooth streaming and low-latency online gaming.

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-AC88U 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.

Cross-Platform Compatibility

Network speed impacts every device you game with on every platform you game on. The ASUS RT-AC88U delivers bandwidth and coverage for all your gaming devices, from consoles to PCs to mobile devices*, and supports every operating system, including Windows®2, Mac OS®3 and Linux.

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-AC88U the perfect ally for low latency gaming anywhere in your home.

Free Up PC System 'Resources' During Gameplay

Networking is only half the equation when it comes to game performance. Anti-virus programs and 3rd party applications can consume valuable CPU and memory that could be reallocated to your game. With AiProtection on the RT-AC88U you can confidently turn off these utilities while you game, ensuring every available drop of resource is spent enhancing your game.

Bandwidth for All

RT-AC88U is the master of entertaining, able to support as many devices as people you invite over and can even maintain multiple simultaneous Full HD 1080P streams. Beyond content consumption, the RT-AC88U enables a smarter home, supporting IP cameras, thermostats and a variety of devices you don't even own yet.

Unbeatable Wi-Fi Coverage

With a four-transmit, four-receive (4T4R) antenna design, both Wi-Fi range and signal stability improve dramatically. AiRadar beamforming further focuses Wi-Fi signal on your devices, making your Wi-Fi faster, clearer and stronger.

Powerful Processor, Faster Transfers

RT-AC88U's top-of-the-line 1.4 GHz dual-core processor brings its computational capability to the next level. USB data transfers enjoy up to over 100 MB/s speed and the router download/upload speed (WAN-LAN throughput) up to 1800 Mbps

Multiple Capacity Wi-Fi with Revolutionary MU-MIMO Tenchology

MU-MIMO gives every compatible device6 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-AC88U 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

AiProtection – Your Digital Playground is Safe

ASUS AiProtection powered by Trend Micro™ ensures your online experience is safe and secure. By combining automatic vulnerability detection, malicious site blocking and parental controls, AiProtection keeps everyone safe and sound.

Monitor and Restrict Internet Activity for Any User

Advanced parental controls help you to prevent users from visiting inappropriate websites, for example keeping young children safe from viewing adult content. You can also restrict the times that each device or guest account can access the internet, by applying scheduled time limits.

Extensive Connectivity Options

RT-AC88U exclusively has eight Gigabit LAN ports – twice the number most routers provide – for up to eight Ethernet-compatible devices to connect simultaneously. Smart TVs, game consoles, set top boxes, media players, NAS storage devices and more can now have their own dedicated ports, making RT-AC88U your digital home hub.

Your Sharing Center

With built-in USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports, you can connect USB-enabled devices, such as external storage drives, printers, or a 3G/4G dongle to your ASUS router and share them conveniently with other users via Wi-Fi. And with USB 3.0, you can enjoy up to 10X faster data transfer speeds.

Link Aggregation, More Devices Go Faster

RT-AC88U features Link Aggregation, which combines two teaming LAN ports (the 1st and 2nd port) into one superfast wired connection for up to 2 Gbps using two Gigabit Ethernet cables5. With Link Aggregation enabled on your NAS, clients can unlock unprecedented transfer speeds.

ASUSWRT –Easily Control Your Network

RT-AC88U features the enhanced, intuitive ASUSWRT user interface, which gives you easy access to both the 3-step web-based installation process and a wealth of robust advanced options.

Control Your Network Anywhere - ASUS Router App

In your increasingly mobile-enabled life, having control over your network via an app is more important than ever. The new ASUS Router App is built from the ground-up to be both intuitive and robust, allowing you to setup your router, manage network traffic, diagnose connection issues and even update firmware, all without needing to boot up a PC.
