ASUS RT-AC86U

Description

The ASUS RT-A86U is a dual-band wireless AC2900 Gigabit router for lag-free online gaming and smooth 4K UHD streaming. Using Broadcom NitroQuam technology, the model achieves a dual-band data transfer rate of up to 2917 Mbps. The maximum 2.4 GHz data transfer rate is 750 Mbps, while the 5 GHz band offers a data transfer rate of up to 2167 Mbps. The 1.8 GHz dual-core processor contributes to the performance of the router.

NitroQAM technology
Whether in the heat of the online gaming battle or during the streaming of a live event in 4K/UHD, latencies and data caching are simply no options. The RT-AC86U's NitroQAM (1024-QAM) technology enables a combined WLAN speed of 2917 Mbps, ensuring that every user on the network can enjoy latency-free streaming and online gaming.

Integrated gaming accelerator
Ping times and variances are critical technical parameters that affect the responsiveness of online gaming. These values essentially depend on the route that the game relevant data packets have to travel to and from their destination. WTFast's Gamers Private Network (GPN) automatically optimizes routing performance by selecting the most efficient route for game-relevant data packets, resulting in permanently reduced ping time and minimal packet loss. With the RT-AC86U you get a free version, with which you can accelerate one selected device at a time. Thus optimal results can be achieved in supported multiplayer online games.

Security with AiProtection
The ASUS AiProctection IPS Engine was developed in cooperation with TrendMicro and offers all-round protection for your network. Especially devices without virus programs such as IoT devices, SmartTVs, AV receivers and game consoles benefit from this system.

signal cover
An internal and three external antennas ensure the best WLAN range and high signal stability. AiRadar beamforming technology also focuses the WLAN signal on the devices, ensuring faster, more interference-free and stronger WLAN.

Comprehensive connection options
The RT-AC86U has four Gigabit LAN ports for connecting network devices such as smart TVs, game consoles, set-top boxes, media players, NAS devices or similar. The integrated USB 3.1 Gen1 and USB 2.0 ports allow USB devices such as external storage media, printers or 3G/4G Internet sticks to be connected to the ASUS router and conveniently shared over the network.

Multi-User Multiple Input Multiple Output (MU-MIMO)
By using multi-user MIMO, this router can stream data to multiple devices simultaneously. With MU-MIMO, your wireless network can deliver faster throughput to any connected device. This means faster downloads and instant streaming for your devices. WLAN routers without MU-MIMO technology, on the other hand, can only stream data to one device in the house at a time.

Routers

A router is a device that forwards data packets between computer networks, creating an overlay internetwork. A router is connected to two or more data lines from different networks. When a data packet comes in one of the lines, the router reads the address information in the packet to determine its ultimate destination. Then, using information in its routing table or routing policy, it directs the packet to the next network on its journey. Routers perform the "traffic directing" functions on the Internet. A data packet is typically forwarded from one router to another through the networks that constitute the internetwork until it gets to its destination node.

USB 2.0 type A

Universal Serial Bus (USB) is a serial bus standard to interface devices. USB was designed to allow many peripherals to be connected using a single standardized interface socket and to improve the plug-and-play capabilities by allowing devices to be connected and disconnected without rebooting the computer (hot swapping). Other convenient features include providing power to low-consumption devices without the need for an external power supply and allowing many devices to be used without requiring manufacturer specific, individual device drivers to be installed.
The Mini-B, Micro-A, Micro-B , and Micro-AB connectors are used for smaller devices such as PDAs, mobile phones or digital cameras. The Standard-A plug is approximately 4 by 12 mm, the Standard-B approximately 7 by 8 mm, and the Micro-A and Micro-B plugs approximately 2 by 7 mm.

Power supply

A power supply is a device that supplies electrical energy to one or more electric loads. The term is most commonly applied to devices that convert one form of electrical energy to another, though it may also refer to devices that convert another form of energy (e.g., mechanical, chemical, solar) to electrical energy. A regulated power supply is one that controls the output voltage or current to a specific value; the controlled value is held nearly constant despite variations in either load current or the voltage supplied by the power supply's energy source.

RT-AC86U

Nichts für mich

Habe den Router leider wieder zurückgeben müssen. Er kommt auf gute (maximale) Internet Speedtest Werte ohne QoS, doch kann ich damit kein IPTV (Fiber7) schauen. Nach 30 Sekunden bleibt das Bild stehen (Apple TV m. Ethernet Kabel) und es passiert nichts mehr. Mit meinem alten RT-N66U kann ich auf mehrere WLAN Geräte (5Ghz) gleichzeitig Multicast streamen ohne Probleme. Mit diesem Router, trotz IGMP Snooping Einstellungen etc. stockt das Bild im WLAN bereits ab 2-3 Sekunden. Absolut unbrauchbar.more

Absolute Kaufempfehlung

Sehr empfehlenswerter Router der meinen alten ASUS RT-AC68U ersetzt. Im Vergleich zum "Vorgänger" hat dieser deutlich mehr Leistung und kommt in alle Ecken meiner Wohnung (5GHz für volle Leistung). Die ASUS Oberfläche ist wie gewohnt einfache zu bedienen und der Router zügig eingerichtet.
