Ideal For Overcoming Thick Walls

The ZenWiFi AX Hybrid combines WiFi and powerline technologies, providing the ideal solution for homes with thick or metal-reinforced walls that cause WiFi backhaul problems. Backhaul data for the mesh network can be sent via powerline over your home's electrical wiring, so home devices can connect at full AX1800 WiFi 6 speeds. The HomePlug AV2 MIMO standard is almost 2X faster* than the previous standard.

*Based on ASUS lab tests. For best results, please connect the unit directly to a wall socket. The use of extension leads may affect performance.

HomePlug AV2 MIMO Ensures High Bandwidth

ASUS ZenWiFi AX Hybrid uses HomePlug AV2, with MIMO and beamforming technologies that use special signal techniques to greatly increase the available bandwidth over electrical circuits to 1300 Mbps. That's almost twice as fast as the previous HomePlug standard!*

* The router should be connected directly to a 3-pronged wall socket.
