      Whole-home Coverage

      High speed tri-band. Stable WiFi.

      The ZenWiFi AC system comes with two ASUS AC3000 routers that together cover up to 5400 sq. ft. or approximately four rooms. With their extended coverage, plus a tri-band design with configurable back-haul technology, you'll enjoy a super-fast, reliable and secure WiFi connection, whether you're in the living room or outside in the garden.

      5400 sq.ft.
      4 + rooms

      Tri-band. Zero slowdowns.

      Unlike traditional dual-band mesh WiFi systems that sacrifice half of the total wireless bandwidth to the backhaul connection, ZenWiFi AC features a tri-band design with a full WiFi band for the backhaul, maximizing system performance and stability. With this upgraded design, you'll experience fast and stable WiFi, even when data transfers through multiple hubs to reach your device.

      SSID and Backhaul Configuration

      ZenWiFi AC allows flexible configuration of the backhaul connection and SSID user name setting. For backhaul connection, you can set the second 5GHz band as a dedicated or non-dedicated backhaul connection, enabling maximized backhaul speed or freeing up the fastest 5GHz band for connected devices. If you have Ethernet ports in your walls, you can also set ZenWiFi AC to use Ethernet backhaul, reserving all three WiFi bands for your wireless devices for even more stable and reliable networking. You can also configure different SSID names for each of the three WiFi bands.

      AiMesh Technology

      Easy setup. Flexible management.

      ZenWiFi AC features exclusive AiMesh technology that makes it quick and easy for anyone to set up a whole-home mesh network, while also giving more experienced users full control of advanced networking features.

      Flexible and Scalable Wireless Networking

      AiMesh is a flexible and scalable solution that enables you to mix different ASUS router models to extend your mesh WiFi system. Whenever you need more coverage or want new functionality, just add another compatible router to your AiMesh network at any time.
