    Whole-home Coverage

    High speed tri-band. Stable WiFi.

    The ZenWiFi AX system comes with two ASUS AX6600 WiFi 6 routers that together cover up to 5500 sq. ft. or approximately six 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.

    5500 sq.ft.
    6 + 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 AX 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.

    Backhaul Configuration

    ZenWiFi AX allows flexible configuration of the 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 AX to use Ethernet backhaul, reserving all three WiFi bands for your wireless devices for even more stable and reliable networking.

    WiFi 6

    True 8K Streaming

    ZenWiFi AX provides 160MHz* bandwidth and 1024-QAM* for dramatically faster wireless connections. With a total networking speed of 6600 Mbps, ZenWiFi AX is up to 2.2X faster than tri-band AC3000 (WiFi 5) routers **.

    *The 160MHz bandwidth may be unavailable in the 5GHz band in some regions / countries due to regulatory restrictions.
    * Compatible WiFi 6 device required.
    ** The data compares speed of 4x4 11ax on 5GHz 160MHz bandwidth with 1024QAM modulation to speed of 4x4 11ac on 5GHz 80MHz with 256QAM modulation.

    Designed for Crowded Network Environments

    With a revolutionary combination of OFDMA* and MU-MIMO* technology, WiFi 6 (802.11ax) provides up to 4X greater network capacity and efficiency in traffic-dense environments. OFDMA allows signals from multiple devices* to be bundled together and transmitted simultaneously, reducing WiFi latency. WiFi 6 also supports Target Wake Time (TWT), which reduces power consumption of connected devices by up to 7X for improved battery life*.

    * Compatible WiFi 6 device required

    Works with any WiFi device

    WiFi 6 is fully compatible with all generations of WiFi, so you can connect any device to ZenWiFi AX, no matter if it uses 8-lef02.11ac, 802.11n or other previous WiFi standards.

    AiMesh Technology
