Free Game Accelerator Inside
Ping time and variance are critical technical parameters that affect responsiveness in online gaming, and their
values depend heavily on the route game packets take to and from their destination. The Gamers Private
Network® (GPN®) from WTFast® automatically performs route optimization, choosing the most efficient route for
game packets, resulting in consistently-lower ping time and minimal packet loss. With RT-AC86U this
optimization is free for accelerating one selectable device at a time, so you can enjoy the results on supported
competitive multi-player online games.
Adaptive QoS – Prioritize Your Game
Boost your gaming bandwidth with Adaptive QoS (Quality of Service), which allows you to easily prioritize
gaming packets and activities. You can even assign full dedicated bandwidth while gaming under gamer solo
mode, making RT-AC86U the perfect ally for low latency gaming anywhere in your home. It supports major
consoles including PlayStation®3, PlayStation®4, PS4™ Pro, PlayStation®Vita, Wii U, 3DS and Xbox One.
Multiple Capacity Wi-Fi with Revolutionary MU-MIMO Tenchology
MU-MIMO gives every compatible device3 its own dedicated full-speed Wi-Fi connection, so that multiple
devices can connect at the same time without slowing down the network.
In fact, RT-AC86U is able to connect to multiple MU-MIMO-compatible clients at each device's maximum speed
simultaneously, unlike standard single-user MIMO where individual devices have to wait for sequential transmissions.
With ASUS innovative antenna design and the new Range Boost technology, both Wi-Fi range and signal
stability improve dramatically. AiRadar further focuses Wi-Fi signal on your devices, making your Wi-Fi faster,
clearer and stronger.
Powerful Processor, Faster Transfers
RT-AC86U's top-of-the-line 1.8 GHz dual-core processor brings its computational capability to the next level.
USB data transfers enjoy up to over 110 MB/s speed and the router download/upload speed (WAN-LAN
throughput) up to 1600 Mbps.
Your Digital Playground is Protected
RT-AC86U incorporates ASUS AiProtection, a commercial-grade network security system powered by Trend
Micro™ Smart Home Network. With AiProtection, all connected devices are protected, even if they have no
antivirus capability of their own — such as IoT devices.
AiProtection blocks common internet-based attacks before they reach the network, and if an infected device is
detected on the network, AiProtection instantly blocks it to prevent it sending any personal information to
Fortified Frontline Network Security
Networking is only half the equation when it comes to game performance. As AiProtection is integrated in
RT-AC86U and powered by the router, even if a device's security software isn't turned on — to get around
blocked games, for example — AiProtection still protects the network from attacks and intrusions, for added peace of mind.
