ASUS Releases their New Wi-Fi 6-ready router: the RT-AX92U!

On December 6th, 2019, ASUS released their tri-band Wi-Fi router, the RT-AX92U, which supports Wi-Fi 6(IEEE802.11ax)!

What is Wi-Fi 6?

funglr’s very own LAN Cable Man has all of our questions answered, as usual.

Wi-Fi 6 is an easy way to express the technical name of IEEE802.11ax, which is based on standards decided by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), in order to make it easier for consumers to understand.
Wi-Fi 5 was made available in 2014 with the technical name of IEEE802.11ac, but Wi-Fi 6 has become the new (and faster) kid on the block, just made available this year.

While Wi-Fi 5 has a frequency of 5GHz, Wi-Fi 6 allows for the usage of 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies, allowing for speeds of data transfer of up to 9.6Gbps.

In addition, the new frequency helps to avoid network congestion and improve battery performance in devices.
This new standard of Wi-Fi will undoubtedly revolutionize not only day-to-day activities, but gaming as well.

More information is available on Asus’s website, but look below for some information straight from the source!

 

2.7x Faster

As seen in the image above, Wi-Fi 6 offers 2.7 times the speed of Wi-Fi 5.
Streaming, gaming, business, the possibilities of this speed are endless.

 

Connect to Multiple Devices

When connecting multiple wireless devices to one router, slow downs tend to happen, and can be a nightmare when trying to puto n an event with multiple people, but Wi-Fi 6 divides subchannels into more subchannels and transmits data simultaneously in order to decrease network lag.

In addition to supporting Wi-Fi 6, the RT-AX92U also comes with these security features:

  • Security technology adopted from Trend Micro
  • Blocks connections from devices infected with malware and other viruses
  • Vulnerability protection via IPS

 

The RT-AX92U also sports these great features for gaming:

The Adaptive QoS allows for the RT-AX92U to prioritize game packets.

wtfast® allows for a Gamers Private Network (GPN), that keeps a steady connection with a server, reducing ping lags during a gaming experience.

 

WAN Port Aggregation Support

The RT-AX92U supports WAN Port Aggregation, allowing for speeds of up to 1Gbps, given there is support from the user’s internet service provider.

 

AiMesh Support

with AiMesh, ASUS made routers that support AiMesh are able to connect together, creating a large wireless environment in a given area.

We definitely recomment the ASUS RT-AX92U, but…

There are still many phones and devices that don’t support Wi-Fi 6 jsut yet, so we recommend waiting until there’s more support for this fast device. But, should your main devices support Wi-Fi 6, the we recommend getting your hands on this router as soon as you can!

At present, the RT-AX92U is on sale on Amazon for $396.99
