Create and Extend Your AiMesh Wi-Fi System
ASUS RP-AX56 is a Wi-Fi 6 AiMesh extender and Wi-Fi range extender that lets you easily expand your current wireless network to deliver powerful and seamless connectivity to every corner of your home. In addition to whole-home Wi-Fi, when used with AiMesh routers, RP-AX56 can extend those AiMesh routers′features.
Incredibly Easy, but Incredibly Powerful
AiMesh is incredibly easy to use, but that doesn't mean it's not powerful. When it is part of an AiMesh network, RP-AX56 still provides comprehensive features and easy central control of all settings from the ASUS Router mobile app or ASUSWRT. So great features like AiProtection, QoS and Parental Controls work across the entire network, ensuring that no-one can bypass them by connecting to a different router. Just remember to always connect your highest-specification router to your internet service.
Seamless, Pain-Free Wi-Fi
When used with AiMesh routers, RP-AX56 can create a single, whole-home Wi-Fi network, so you don't have to switch networks as you move throughout your house. AiMesh keeps an eye on the signal strength to your device, and switches it seamlessly to another source if necessary. All you have to do is enjoy it! If you prefer separate network names for each frequency band, you can do that as well — AiMesh is designed to work the way you want!
One or Multiple Wi-Fi Name, the Choice is Yours
When extending current AiMesh network, you can choose to keep only one Wi-Fi name (SSID) for the entire home network for easier usage; or separate Wi-Fi names so you can dedicate different Wi-Fi band for different usage. For example, dedicate the 5GHz band to gaming devices with higher bandwidth needs and 2.4GHz band for normal usage.
Flexible Backhaul Connection with Router
RP-AX56 supports AP mode, so you can establish Ethernet backhaul with on-wall Ethernet jacks in your home to create a wired connection between the router and RP-AX56. This not only provides even more stable Wi-Fi, but also dedicates the entire 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands to wireless devices for smoother connections.
Works Perfectly with Any Wi-Fi Router
RP-AX56 is also a Wi-Fi 6 range extender that works perfectly with virtually all Wi-Fi routers, modems and cable routers/gateways on the market, so you don't have to worry if you do not have an AiMesh/ASUS router yet.
Easy Setup - Extend Wi-Fi from Non-AiMesh Router
If you don‘t have an AiMesh router, setting up your RP-AX56 Wi-Fi 6 range extender is still easy. It doesn't require messing with discs, or even a mouse and keyboard. You can use the ASUS Extender app to easily transfer your router's login information to RP-AX56 with just a few taps; or use the Pair buttons on RP-AX56 and your router for instant automatic setup.*
* Pair button setup and ASUS Extender app setup is not applicable when RP-AX56 is working with AiMesh routers.
