Asus - Wireless Router - 802.11A/B/G/N/Ac - Desktop, Wall-Mountable
- ASUS RT-AC87U
- Network cable
RT-AC87U is designed for pure performance - as well as its main 1 GHz dual-core processor, RT-AC87U also has a separate dual-core processor that's dedicated solely to 5G Hz 4 x 4 Wi-Fi related tasks. This means that compared to routers with a single 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, RT-AC87U has Wi-Fi-to-USB transfer speeds that are up to twice as fast, and can show much improvement in total throughput on a heavily-loaded network with multiple clients!
Groundbreaking wireless performance
Enjoy an unseen level of wireless performance, with 2334 Mbps of combined 802.11ac and 802.11n bandwidth. With class-leading speeds of up to 600 Mbps on the 2.4 GHz band - thanks to Broadcom TurboQAM technology - and up to 1734 Mbps concurrently on the 5 GHz band, which is even faster than the latest tri-band 3 x 3 routers, RT-AC87U leaves the competition standing.
Unrivaled signal coverage
Boasting a true four-stream, four-antenna design, RT-AC87U gives you much wireless coverage. That makes it the ideal choice for large homes and multi-floor buildings. Thanks to AiRadar beamforming and unique multi user-MIMO (MU-MIMO) technology, the more devices you use the more the throughput increases.
Life in the LAN
For the fastest wired networking performance, RT-AC87U has a dedicated Gigabit WAN port, five 1000 Mbps Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports (one of which can be used as a second WAN port), and hardware-accelerated NAT. Unlike the traditional software-based NAT used in most other routers, RT-AC87U's hardware NAT removes the bottleneck between the wired LAN and the internet, allowing you to get optimal results out of modern super-fast broadband connections.
Tested for compatibility
RT-AC87U, like all ASUS networking products, is subjected to exhaustive compatibility testing during its development. RT-AC87U works flawlessly with a vast range of adapters, media players and other wireless devices to ensure high performance.
Lets you connect devices instantly with a press of the WPS button.
Configure a VPN server or turn your network-connected devices into VPN-enabled clients - with PPTP and OpenVPN protocol support - with no need for paid VPN services or a dedicated VPN server.
Powerfyl, user-friendly interface
RT-AC87U features the enhanced ASUSWRT graphical user interface, which gives you easy access to the 30-second, 3-step web-based installation process. It's also where you can configure AiCloud 2.0 and all RT-AC87U's advanced options. ASUSWRT is web-based, so it doesn't need a separate app, or restrict what you can change via mobile devices - you get full access to everything, from any device that can run a web browser.
