ASUS ZenWiFi AC3000 Wi-Fi 5 Mesh Router Kit, Charcoal, 2 Pack
Whole Home Coverage: High Speed Tri-Band, Stable Wi-Fi
The ZenWiFi AC system consists of a pair of ASUS AC3000 Wi-Fi 5 routers, featuring unique technologies that give you superfast, reliable and secure Wi-Fi connections; inside or outside your home!
Flexible Network Naming
Uniquely, ZenWiFi AC lets you choose how you name your Wi-Fi networks: a single name for everything, or separate names for each frequency band. The choice is yours!
Tri-Band. Zero Slowdowns
Unlike traditional dual-band mesh Wi-Fi systems that sacrifice half of the total wireless bandwidth to the backhaul connection, ZenWiFi AC features a tri-band design with a full Wi-Fi band for the backhaul, maximizing system performance and stability. With this upgraded design, you'll experience fast Wi-Fi, even when data transfers through multiple hubs to your device.
ZenWiFi AC 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 AC to use Ethernet backhaul, reserving all three Wi-Fi bands for your wireless devices for even more stable and reliable networking.
3 Step setup with the ASUS Router app.
- Turn on ZenWiFi AC Router
- Create a Wi-Fi Network Name and an Admin Account
- Wait for 3 minutes, and you're done!
What makes ZenWiFi AC setup so easy?
One-time setup, with auto synchronization for all the hubs in each package.
Hassle-free: each unit can work as the main router or an extender node.
