The New Era of Home WiFi
The growing number of connected personal and IoT devices has led to an overall increase in network density that is pushing the limits of the current WiFi standard. The latest 802.11ax standard provides future-proof technologies, higher network efficiency, faster WiFi speeds, greater coverage and improved battery life for connected devices, providing a significantly better networking experience for users.
RT-AX89X is a 8×8 dual-band WiFi router that provides 1024-QAM for dramatically faster wireless connections. With a total networking speed of about 6000Mbps — 1148Mbps on the 2.4GHz band and 4804Mbps on the 5GHz band — RT-AX89X is up to 2.8X faster than 802.11ac 4×4 dual-band routers.3
More LAN Ports for More Convenience
Eight Gigabit LAN ports make RT-AX89X the ideal solution if you have multiple wired devices, such as NAS systems, PCs and switches. And, if you ever want to host a LAN party at home, RT-AX89X makes it possible.
Ultra-fast Wired Speed
The RT-AX89X comes with two 10G ports, one Base-T and SFP+ port, which means both fiber and copper 10G connections are supported. Capture ISP advertised speeds or use your own 10G LAN network between PCs and NAS.
Gaming Without Limits
Prioritize via Gaming Port
The dedicated gaming port on RT-AX89X automatically prioritizes any wired device connected to it. 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-AX89X'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.***
Built for Multi-device Households
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 802.11ax WiFi 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 802.11ax WiFi standard featuring OFDMA technology, RT-AX89X 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*.
Commercial-grade Security for your Home Network
RT-AX89X has lifetime free AiProtection Pro, powered by Trend Micro™ with automatic, regularly updated security signatures to protect your devices and personal data from internet threats. This strong security offers advanced parental controls, including the ability to block specific websites and mobile app types.
Wireless that's as Stable as Wired Ethernet
When you are far away from your router, enjoying the stability of a wired network connection is usually impractical or impossible. With special designed antennas, RT-AX89X provides wide coverage and a stable signal, letting you enjoy a reliable and smooth connection for gaming or work anywhere in your home.
Extreme 2.2GHz quad-core Power
RT-AX89X features a top-of-the-line 2.2 GHz quad-core CPU that is more powerful than many desktop processors. With its incredible performance, RT-AX89X maximizes throughput for the best networking performance, accelerates USB data transfers and more.
Powerful Whole-home WiFi System.
The Way You Want.
In most cases, your RT-AX89X 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. AiMesh is WiFi you can rely on — for all your devices, all the time!
* To benefit from 802.11ax features, the WiFi client needs to be 802.11ax capable.
** Actual data throughput and WiFi coverage will vary from network conditions and environmental factors, including the volume of network traffic, building material and construction, and network overhead, result in lower actual data throughput and wireless coverage.
*** Quoted network speeds and bandwidth based on current IEEE 802.11ax specifications. Actual performance may be affected by network and service provider factors, interface type, and other conditions. Connected devices must be 802.11ax-compatible for best results.
