The ZenWiFi system has been designed for easy and intuitive setup and network management, but gives you the ability to take control for a customized experience that’s right for you. For example, you can have your mobile devices use all three wireless bands, or designate a 5 GHz band for backhaul operations to optimize the network speed of your devices. The ZenWiFi system also provides data security, parental controls, support for smart-home services, and is compatible with additional ASUS AiMesh components.

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.
