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 Wi-Fi standard. The latest 802.11ax standard provides future-proof technologies, higher network efficiency, faster Wi-Fi speeds, greater coverage and improved battery life for connected devices, providing a significantly better networking experience for users.

Warp-speed WiFi

RT-AX88U is a 4x4 dual-band Wi-Fi router that provides 160MHz bandwidth and 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-AX88U is 2.3X faster than 802.11ac 4x4 dual-band routers.

  • Network Efficiency

  • Power Saving

  • Better Coverage

  • 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 Wi-Fi 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 Wi-Fi 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 Wi-Fi experience.

    In the past: 1 device processed at a time
    802.11ac OFDM

    Bandwidth wasted - Higher latency

     Now: Multi-devices processed simultaneously
    802.11ax OFDMA

    Bandwidth fully utilized - Lower latency

Give your Online Gaming a Double Boost

RT-AX88U's Adaptive QoS prioritizes game packets for smoother online play. It also has built-in wtfast® to seek out and secure the shortest possible path between your gaming device and the game server, minimizing game ping and lag2.

  • 1 The data refers to uplink OFDMA
  • 2 The free router edition supports one selectable device on your network at a time with GPN traffic limits, and includes wtfast® technical support. Users can pay to upgrade to the advanced version for simultaneous acceleration of multiple devices with more GPN traffic and advanced features. Check out supported games list here.
  • * To benefit from 802.11ax features, the Wi-Fi 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.
