Next-Gen Wi-Fi Speed

RT-AX55 is a 2x2 dual-band Wi-Fi router that provides 80MHz bandwidth and 1024-QAM for dramatically faster wireless connections. With a total networking speed of about 1800Mbps — 574Mbps on the 2.4GHz band and 1201Mbps on the 5GHz band — RT-AX55 is 1.5X faster than 802.11ac 2x2 dual-band routers.

Protection for your home network

RT-AX55 has lifetime free AiProtection Classic, powered by Trend Micro™ with automatic, regularly updated security signatures to protect your devices and personal data from internet threats. This strong security offers parental controls, including the ability to block specific websites and mobile app types.

Built for multi-device households

With a revolutionary combination of OFDMA and MUMIMO technology, 802.11ax technology provides up to 4X greater network capacity and efficiency in trafficdense environments. Previous-generation 802.11ac WiFi can only handle one device at a time on each network channel, which is an inefficient use of available bandwidth. OFDMA support in the 802.11ax Wi-Fi standard divides each channel into small sub-channels, allowing signals from multiple devices* to be bundled together and transmitted simultaneously, reducing latency for a smoother, more responsive Wi-Fi experience.

*It requires OFDMA-compatible and MU-MIMO-compatible devices to enjoy the benefit.

Better battery life for your devices

Target Wake Time (TWT) allows RT-AX55 to schedule designated intervals for devices to transmit data. This allows them to sleep when there is no need to wait for a router signal, reducing power consumption by up to 7X for significantly improved battery life*.

*It requires 802.11ax-compatible devices to enjoy the benefits brought by 802.11ax Wi-Fi standard.

Power whole-home Wi-Fi system

RT-AX55 supports ASUS AiMesh a powerful, flexible whole-home mesh system technology. You can use a mix of ASUS AiMesh supported router - protecting your investment! AiMesh gives you time-saving central control, and seamless roaming capability.
