Lightning-Fast 2 Gbps Internet
RT-AX86 Series is designed to break down all the barriers that can slow down your gaming. It supports up to a 2 Gbps internet connection, so you can unlock the full potential of high-speed networking for both wired and WiFi connections.
Internet Without Limits
RT-AX86 Series can unlock up to 2 Gbps of internet bandwidth by aggregating two separate 1 Gbps internet services using the WAN port and a 1 Gbps LAN port, doubling the maximum internet connection speed to 2 Gbps!
