The dedicated gaming port on RT-AX86U automatically prioritizes any wired device connected to it. No complex configuration is needed, just connect your gaming PC or console to the special LAN port to give you a fast, stable connection that's always at the head of the queue.
Gear Accelerator lets you prioritize devices wirelessly via RT-AX86U's online control panel. The simple interface lets you prioritize devices to help boost their speed and prevent them fighting over bandwidth with other devices.
Connect your devices to the 5 GHz band and avoid the often-congested 2.4 GHz band, while enjoying up to 5.6X faster WiFi speeds. Also, optional Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS) unlocks up to 15 of the least-congested channels on the 5GHz band to give you even more bandwidth for gaming.***
RT-AX86U can unlock up to 2 Gbps of internet bandwidth by aggregating two separate 1 Gbps internet services using the WAN port and a 1 Gbps LAN port, doubling the maximum internet connection speed to 2 Gbps! This massive internet bandwidth can then be shared via WiFi 6 or via the 2.5 Gbps wired network port. For extra versatility, the 2.5 Gbps port can be used for either WAN or LAN connections.
RT-AX86U features AiProtection Pro powered by Trend Micro™ to defend your network from external attacks, with automatic and regular updates. Working with WPA3, the latest WiFi security protocol, AiProtection Pro keeps out security threats before they can reach your devices, including devices that cannot install anti-virus software — such as smartphones and game consoles.

* Actual data throughput and WiFi coverage will vary from network conditions and environmental factors, including the volume of network traffic, building material and construction, and network overhead, result in lower actual data throughput and wireless coverage.
** To benefit from WiFi 6 features, the WiFi client needs to be WiFi 6 capable.
*** The number of speed is calculated with data rate of 2.4 GHz band and of 5 GHz band, which are respectively 861 and 4804 Mbps. And the DFS channels may not be supported in some countries due to local regulations.
