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 delivers the ultimate 5GHz quad-stream (4x4) speeds of up to 2167Mbps, giving RT-AC86U combined total speed of 2917Mbps. So everyone on your network can enjoy smooth streaming and low-latency online gaming!

With 802.11ac standard and NitroQAM – 1024-QAM, ASUS RT-AC86U router provides up to 1.25 times faster Wi-Fi speed than routers without NitroQAM
Powerful Hardware,
Ultimate Performance
With the increasing popularity of 5GHz Wi-Fi devices, a router needs to deliver the maximum 5GHz bandwidth possible, with reliable long-range performance. RT-AC86U has an extra internal 5GHz antenna to provide the ultimate 5GHz quad-stream performance, while RangeBoost significantly improves mid- to long-distance Wi-Fi coverage. Additionally, RT-AC86U's top-of-the-line 1.8GHz 64bit dual-core processor brings its computational capability to the next level, enabling USB data transfers of up to 110MB/s and router download/upload speeds (WAN-LAN throughput) of up to 1600Mbps.

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

ASUS RT-AC86U router features double gaming boost. Firstly, it prioritizes game traffic with adaptive QoS then optimizes internet connection to game server with Gamer Private Network powered by WTFast.
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.

ASUS RT-AC86U router's built in game acceleration – Gamer's private network helps to lower 30% to 60% of the average ping time, 70% to 90% of average ping variation and 70% to 90% packet loss also.
ASUS RT-AC86U router comes with build-in game acceleration called “Gamers Private Network” powered by WTFast to which helps to optimize internet connection from your router to the game server.
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.

ASUS RT-AC86U router allows users to select a type of traffic and prioritized the packets in them by setting adaptive QoS in ASUSWRT.
Multiple Capacity Wi-Fi with Revolutionary MU-MIMO Technology
MU-MIMO gives every compatible device3 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.

ASUS RT-AC86U comes with Multi-user MIMO, allowing RT-AC86U to serve multi-device at a time.
Unbeatable Coverage
With ASUS innovative antenna design and the new Range Boost technology, both Wi-Fi range and signal stability improve dramatically. AiRadar further focuses Wi-Fi signal on your devices, making your Wi-Fi faster, clearer and stronger.

ASUS RT-AC86U router features RangeBoost increasing up to 120% Wi-Fi signal coverage.
