Wireless technology’s become a vital part of everyday life, whether it be in our personal lives or at work.
As fibre continues to roll-out across South Africa, it’s imperative that your WiFi router is not the bottleneck within your home or business network.
ASUS, for one, has the ultimate router for wireless gamers, streamers, data hoarders, and those wanting to pry the most from their internet service providers.
The RT-AX92U 2 Pack AiMesh WiFi solution is especially worth considering.
With a design straight out of the modern space age, this router combo can deliver a theoretical 4.8GBps of throughput to supported devices.
This is achieved using its 4×4 tri-band WiFi 6 (802.11 ax) support, utilizing the 5GHz band. Resulting in around 2.7 times faster throughput than WiFi 5 (802.11 ac).
In practice, this enables lag-free streaming, through services such as Netflix, Showmax or YouTube.
WiFi 6 is the latest wireless technology standard that newer smartphones and laptops are beginning to support.
The likes of the Samsung Galaxy S10 family, Samsung Galaxy Note 10 family, and the iPhone 11 family all support WiFi 6.
The technology features a wider band on its 5GHz channel, which means double the bandwidth. Resulting in far less congestion on your private network.
WiFi 6 also reduces the power consumption on supported devices.
The RT-AX92U 2 Pack AiMesh WiFi solution still features WiFi 5 (802.11 ac) technology for those devices that do not support WiFi 6 (802.11 ax), this ensures the best all-round compatibility and “future-proofing” of your home network.
AiMesh is an ASUS proprietary technology, whereby ASUS supported routers are used as nodes within the mesh WiFi network. Essential for making your home network smarter, as the supported routers within your home are able to communicate with one another, monitor your signal strength, and switch to the strongest router, relative to your device’s position, seamlessly. This means more uptime for users trying to find the comfiest couch in the house!
The RT-AX92U 2 Pack AiMesh WiFi solution also features AiProtection Pro, which is an added layer of security. It protects users against ransomware attacks, blocking malicious websites, and automatically detecting then blocking infected devices, ensuring that your network remains in safe hands.
The RT-AX92U 2 Pack AiMesh WiFi solution also features Adaptive QoS which allows the user to adjust apps within category priority, the router then ensures optimal network performance. The default rule sets online gaming and web surfing as the highest priority and are not influenced by P2P (peer-to-peer) applications.
Parents can also restrict their little ones from accessing sites using ASUS’ parental controls, either via the ASUS Router App, or via the GUI of the router.
The ASUS RT-AX92U 2 Pack AiMesh WiFi solution arrives with a slew of technologies that both prosumers or basic internet users will all find beneficial today and well into the future.
