The ASUS RT-AC56U leads the way in next generation routers, offering dual-band Gigabit wireless with 802.11 ac Wi-Fi. Its powerful dual-core CPU and DDR3 RAM provides the best performance in both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. The 5 GHz band works at up to 867 Mbps, while the 2.4 GHz frequency tops 300 Mbps, serves an incredible combined bandwidth of 1167 Mbps. That's three times the speed of standard 2 x 2 wireless-N routers! Plus, a USB 3.0 port means data transfers at up to ten times the speed of USB 2.0, and the RT-AC56U comes dressed up in the classy black diamond design.

The exclusive ASUSWRT interface delivers 30-second setup, multiple SSIDs, and IPv6 support to further enhance networking, while USB 3.0/USB 2.0 ports instantly turn the RT-AC56U into a file, 3G/4G sharing, enhanced media server, VPN, and printer server for the ultimate in multi-role router functionality.
