What is AiMesh?

AiMesh connects multiple compatible ASUS routers to create a whole-home mesh WiFi network. The flexible and scalable technology lets you mix different AiMesh-compatible routers, and add new ones at any time to improve coverage.* All devices in an AiMesh network enjoy access to all the features of the main router, including gaming features, AiProtection commercial-grade security and more. Most ASUS routers already support AiMesh.

*AiMesh supports the 802.11k/v standard.

Award-Winning Technology

“Asus may not be the first brand name that comes to mind when you think of home networking gear. But in 2021, it wins our Readers' Choice award for routers for a tenth straight year. It's the first brand you should consider when upgrading your home networking setup.”-PCMag

Smart Technology for Maximum Reliability

AiMesh is designed to be fast and reliable, for worry-free WiFi. You can enjoy seamless connections anywhere, without switching to different networks, and the AiMesh network can still deliver an internet connection even if one node is down.

Auto-Selects the Best WiFi Signal

AiMesh can create a single, house-wide network name so there’s no need to constantly switch between networks as you roam around your home. AiMesh keeps an eye on the signal strength to your device, and switches it seamlessly to another source if necessary. If you prefer separate network names for each frequency band, you can do that as well — AiMesh is designed to work the way you want!

Always-Up, Self-Healing Connection

If there’s a disruption on any part of AiMesh network, self-healing capability immediately replaces a failed router using the remaining router connections. So your connection will not be disrupted and you don’t even notice a thing.

Intelligent Band Selection

Nodes are joined by a backhaul connection, and a stable backhaul ensures the reliability of the whole network. AiMesh detects the connection quality of each frequency band and intelligently chooses the best band for backhaul: 5 GHz, 2.4 GHz or even the new WiFi 6E 6 GHz band. It will also automatically switch to another band if the current backhaul band becomes congested.

Easy and Powerful Management

An AiMesh system can be easily managed via the ASUS Router app or the web interface. You can check connectivity, graphically monitor traffic, and customize settings with a simple click or tap. Running an AiMesh network is truly hassle-free.

One-Tap Optimization

There's an easy one-tap shortcut in the ASUS Router app to optimize the AiMesh topology — that is, the connections between the main router and each node. An optimized topology ensures that each node is connected to the main router via the shortest route, delivering fast and stable connections across your entire home.

AiMesh Connections

With the intuitive user interface, it's easy to see at a glance the configuration of your flexible AiMesh network as it expands. You can instantly see how many nodes are connected and how many devices are connected to each node.

Node Connection Status

Click on any node to instantly see its backhaul connection quality, data transmission rate or more detailed information. If the connection‘s poor, ASUS provides multiple ways to fix it, including one-click optimization, backhaul connection prioritization, and more.

Advanced Configurations

For custom configurations, the ASUS Router app  and web interface have powerful tools that let you change system parameters, backhaul type, or node settings. It's a truly professional tool for anyone who wants fully-tailored network settings.

Full Backhaul Options

AiMesh provides multiple backhaul customization options. For wireless backhaul, you can manually choose the preferred uplink band for each node, including the new 6 GHz WiFi 6E* band. On some tri-band models you can even assign a dedicated band just for backhaul. For wired backhaul, AiMesh allows Ethernet connections for single nodes or for the entire network, which enables ultrafast throughput from the 10G and 2.5G LAN ports available on some premium ASUS routers. The choice is yours!

* Only available on WiFi 6E routers.

Flexible System-Wide Updates

It's easy to make configuration changes to the entire AiMesh system at once — including firmware updates, rebooting or resetting — or perform operations on each node separately. Even when you're out of the house, you can still fix any home internet issues by remotely configuring either the whole system or individual nodes.

Node Customized Settings

Each node can be configured separately, including link aggregation, USB applications, WiFi radio, LED light control and other advanced customizations.  You can also manually choose a suitable uplink connection for each node via Preferred Uplink AP.

Make the Internet a Safer Place for Everyone

Home network security is crucial for multiple connected devices, including vulnerable IoT devices. AiMesh routers include lifetime free AiProtection and Parental Controls, and some models also use the latest WPA3 security protocol. All your devices are protected in an AiMesh system!
