Description

8K Live Streaming

With support for Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) technology and 160 MHz wide channels, you can enjoy network speeds up to 6.6 Gb/s, which is enough for 8K-quality live streams with compatible devices. Please note that 160 MHz bandwidth may be unavailable in the 5 GHz band in some regions/countries due to regulatory restrictions.

Improve Device Battery Life with TWT

Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) supports a feature called Target Wake Time (TWT), which has the ability to schedule when compatible devices can wake from sleep modes to check-in with the network or internet. This lets devices stay asleep longer, saving battery life.

Tri-Band with Optional Backhaul

This ZenWiFi system delivers three individual Wi-Fi bands, two 5 GHz bands and one 2.4 GHz band. You have the option of combining them under a single network name, or keeping them separate with names for each band. You also have the option of dedicating one of the 5 GHz bands for backhaul support.

A backhaul connection is the network connection between the routers themselves and is not something your mobile devices can see or utilize. If you choose to not set one up, your mobile devices can use all 3 bands for network and internet access, but the routers will communicate on one of the 5 GHz bands. If you select to have a backhaul connection, the router and device traffic are separated, reducing possible network congestion.

This system also supports a wired backhaul solution. You can utilize one of the Ethernet ports on each router to connect to your existing network for a wired backhaul connection. This gives the routers a dedicated connection, while giving your mobile devices access to all three wireless bands.

Easy Setup

ASUS designed the ZenWiFi system setup to be a 3-step process. Utilizing the ASUS Router app, you just have to turn on the routers, create a network name and admin account, and then wait a few minutes. That’s it. This one-time setup includes auto-synchronization for each of the routers, and each router can work as the main router or as an extender node.

AiProtection Pro with Parental Controls

ASUS AiProtection is a free-for-life service that requires no subscription fee to use. It’s designed to protect your data, keep your family safe, let you monitor network usage, and control network access.

  • IPS (Intrusion Prevention System) blocks all common internet-based attacks
  • Infection detection and blocking abilities help prevent data on already-infected devices from being compromised
  • Utilizing Trend Micro’s database, ZenWiFi can identify and block known malicious websites
  • Internet Activity Dashboard: View everyone’s internet activity on a graphical dashboard. See peak time and what content is being viewed. Group devices that children have access to and view aggregated data, apply scheduled block times, and content filters in just a few steps.
  • Kid-Safe Preset: With a single checkbox, you can set a device or profile to automatically have filters applied for inappropriate content
  • Schedule Block Time: Develop responsible behavior by setting specific time periods when devices can access the internet
  • Content Filter: Lets you block specific categories of apps and sites, and allows you to apply those settings to all devices or those belonging to specific family members. Advanced filtering integrates with Trend Micro’s Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) engine to not only filter websites, but internet packets of information themselves, so content is filtered in the browser and within mobile apps.

Smart Home with Alexa & IFTTT

The ZenWiFi system supports Alexa and IFTTT-compatible smart home devices, allowing you to use voice commands and IFTTT applets to control the routers. Use your voice to start a guest network, pause the internet, and more.

Add Peripherals with USB

Each router features a USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A port for the connection of optional peripherals to enhance your network’s capabilities. Give all of your devices access to a USB printer or access to external USB storage.

Compatible with AiMesh

If you need more coverage throughout your home, you can add AiMesh devices to expand the ZenWiFi system. Optional AiMesh-compatible routers can act as Wi-Fi nodes around your house. Nodes closest to other ZenWiFi routers can boost your network signal where existing equipment might not reach.
