Get Your Home Ready for Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax)

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 Wi-Fi standard. The latest 802.11ax standard provides future-proof technologies, higher network efficiency, faster Wi-Fi speeds, greater coverage and improved battery life for connected devices, providing a significantly better networking experience for users.

* It requires 802.11ax-compatible devices to enjoy the benefits brought by 802.11ax Wi-Fi standard.

Next-Gen Wi-Fi Speed

RT-AX55 is a 2x2 dual-band Wi-Fi router that provides 80MHz bandwidth and 1024-QAM for dramatically faster wireless connections. With a total networking speed of about 1800Mbps - 574Mbps on the 2.4GHz band and 1201Mbps on the 5GHz band - RT-AX55 is 1.5X faster than 802.11ac 2x2 dual-band routers.

What's Wi-Fi 6?

* To benefit from Wi-Fi 6 features, the Wi-Fi client needs to be Wi-Fi 6 capable.

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 Wi-Fi 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 Wi-Fi 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 Wi-Fi experience.

Protection for Your Home Network

RT-AX55 has lifetime free AiProtection Classic, powered by Trend Micro™ with automatic, regularly updated security signatures to protect your devices and personal data from internet threats. This strong security offers parental controls, including the ability to block specific websites and mobile app types.
