From the manufacturer
Game Faster. Game Farther. Game Safer.
Equipped with the latest 4x4 802.11ac MU-MIMO technology and 8 Gigabit LAN ports backed by ASUS-exclusive AiProtection powered by Trend Micro, the dual-band RT-AC88U delivers speed you crave and security you need. The combined data rate of 3167 Mbps with whole-home extended coverage and Smart Connect ensure fast, stable connectivity for all your Wi-Fi devices.
- Dual-band with the latest 802.11ac 4x4 technology for up to 3167 Mbps throughput
- Built-in access to WTFast Gamers Private Network (GPN) delivers low, stable ping times
- AiProtection Powered by Trend Micro provides multi-stage vulnerability protection and prevention
- AiMesh Supported - Connect your RT-AC88U to other compatible ASUS routers
AiMesh is an innovative new router feature that connects multiple ASUS routers to create a whole-home WiFi network. It’s a powerful and flexible way to solve your WiFi problems that also makes the most of your existing hardware: you can mix different ASUS router models, so when you upgrade there’s no need to throw away your old router — you can use it to expand your AiMesh network.
Powered by a 1.4 GHz dual-core processor backed by 512 MB of memory, the RT-AC88U has plenty of horsepower to efficiently balance its dual-band (2.4 and 5 GHz) networks, EIGHT Gigabit Ethernet ports with 2 Gbps link aggregation capability and USB 3.0 and 2.0 storage/networking functionality.
Built-in Game Acceleration
The path gaming packets take once they leave your network affects ping time and stability. Inefficient hops lead to inconsistent ping and packet loss. The RT-AC88U features a built-in WTFast client to access the GPN: a private network of route-optimized servers to ensure consistently low ping times.
With a four-transmit, four-receive (4T4R) antenna design, both Wi-Fi range and signal stability improve dramatically, able to reach even the farthest stretches of your home. AiRadar beamforming further focuses Wi-Fi signal on your devices, making your Wi-Fi faster, clearer and stronger.
Eight Gigabit LAN Ports
Unique to the RT-AC88U are its eight gigabit LAN ports, perfect for gaming PCs, set-top boxes or anything else that needs an unwavering gigabit connection. You can even enable link aggregation and combine the 2 teaming ports to achieve up to 2 Gbps transfer speeds, ideal for NAS.
MU-MIMO gives every compatible device 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, MU-MIMO-compatible clients will connect at each client’s respective maximum speed simultaneously.
AiProtection Powered by Trend Micro
Just as wireless technology has evolved, online threats have similarly evolved. AiProtection provides multi-stage protection against these threats. From vulnerability protection and malicious site blocking to preventing already-infected devices from transmitting personal data, AiProtection keeps your digital playground safe and sound.
ASUSWRT User Interface
The RT-AC88U features the enhanced, intuitive ASUSWRT user interface, which gives you easy access to both the 3-step web-based installation process and a wealth of robust advanced options.
ASUS Router App
With the ASUS Router App it’s much easier and more intuitive to manage your ASUS router. From initial setup to real-time network traffic monitoring to managing security settings and connected devices.
