RT-AX89X

The New Era of Home WiFi

The growing number of connected personal and IoT devices has led to an overall increase in network density that is pushing the limits of the current WiFi standard. The latest 802.11ax standard provides future-proof technologies, higher network efficiency, faster WiFi speeds, greater coverage and improved battery life for connected devices, providing a significantly better networking experience for users.

Warp-speed WiFi

RT-AX89X is a 8x8 dual-band WiFi router that provides 1024-QAM for dramatically faster wireless connections. With a total networking speed of about 6000Mbps — 1148Mbps on the 2.4GHz band and 4804Mbps on the 5GHz band — RT-AX89X is up to 2.8X faster than 802.11ac 4x4 dual-band routers.3

Wired or Wireless. The Choice is Yours.

More LAN Ports for
More Convenience

Eight Gigabit LAN ports make RT-AX89X the ideal solution if you have multiple wired devices, such as NAS systems, PCs and switches. And, if you ever want to host a LAN party at home, RT-AX89X makes it possible.



More Lan Ports

Ultra-fast Wired Speed

The RT-AX89X comes with two 10G ports, one Base-T and SFP+ port, which means both fiber and copper 10G connections are supported. Capture ISP advertised speeds or use your own 10G LAN network between PCs and NAS.

The dedicated gaming port on RT-AX89X 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-AX89X'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 8.4X 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.***

    Built for Multi-device Households

    With a revolutionary combination of OFDMA and MU-MIMO technology, 802.11ax technology provides up to 4X greater network capacity and efficiency in traffic-dense environments. Previous-generation 802.11ac WiFi can only handle one device at a time on each network channel, which is an inefficient use of available bandwidth. OFDMA support in the 802.11ax WiFi standard divides each channel into small sub-channels, allowing signals from multiple devices* to be bundled together and transmitted simultaneously, reducing latency for a smoother, more responsive WiFi experience.

    In the past: 1 device processed at a time

    Bandwidth wasted - Higher latency

    Now: Multi-devices processed simultaneously

    Bandwidth fully utilized - Lower latency

  • Better Coverage

    WiFi that Goes Farther

    With the latest 802.11ax WiFi standard featuring OFDMA technology, RT-AX89X provides increased WiFi signal range and better coverage by dividing each channel into smaller sub-channels. These sub-channels have a smaller bandwidth that enables them to travel up to 80% farther1, resulting in a better WiFi connection throughout your home*.
