Whether you're gaming online in a heated competition or streaming a live event in 4K UHD, lag and buffering are simply not an option. NitroQAM (1024-QAM) technology on the RT-AC5300 delivers a combined 5334 Mbps Wi-Fi speed, ensuring everyone on your network can enjoy smooth streaming and low-latency online gaming.
Enjoy low-latency online gaming with boosted internet and home network performance!
Ping time and variance are critical technical parameters that affect responsiveness in online gaming, and their values depend heavily on the route game packets take to and from their destination. The Gamers Private Network (GPN) from WTFast automatically performs route optimization, choosing the most efficient route for game packets, resulting in consistently-lower ping time and minimal packet loss. With RT-AC5300 this optimization is free for accelerating one selectable device at a time, so you can enjoy the results on supported competitive multi-player online games.
Network speed impacts every device you game with on every platform you game on. The ASUS RT-AC5300 delivers bandwidth and coverage for all your gaming devices, from consoles to PCs to mobile devices*, and supports every operating system, including Windows 2, Mac OS and Linux.
Boost your gaming bandwidth with Adaptive QoS (Quality of Service), which allows you to easily prioritize gaming packets and activities. You can even assign full dedicated bandwidth while gaming under gamer solo mode, making RT-AC5300 the perfect ally for low latency gaming anywhere in your home. It supports major consoles including PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PS4 Pro, PlayStationVita, Wii U, 3DS and Xbox One.
Networking is only half the equation when it comes to game performance. Anti-virus programs and 3rd party applications can consume valuable CPU and memory that could be reallocated to your game. With AiProtection on the RT-AC5300 you can confidently turn off these utilities while you game, ensuring every available drop of resource is spent enhancing your game.
RT-AC5300 is the master of entertainment, with its ability to support multiple devices and multiple Full HD 1080p streams. Beyond content consumption, the RT-AC5300 enables a smarter home, supporting IP cameras, thermostats and a variety of devices you don't even own yet.
With a four-transmit, four-receive (4T4R) antenna design, both Wi-Fi range and signal stability improve dramatically. AiRadar beamforming further focuses the Wi-Fi signal on your devices, making your Wi-Fi faster, clearer and stronger.
Having an ASUS RT-AC5300 is like having three wireless routers in one. The two separate 5 GHz wireless bands - each with speeds up to 2167 Mbps - and the single 1000 Mbps 2.4 GHz wireless band all work simultaneously. This means you can enjoy lag-free online gaming, smooth 4K video streaming and uninterrupted file downloading on every device connected to your home network.
RT-AC5300's top-of-the-line 1.4 GHz dual-core processor brings its computational capability to the next level. USB data transfers enjoy up to over 100 MB/s speed and the router download/upload speed (WAN-LAN throughput) up to 1800 Mbps5.
MU-MIMO gives every compatible device6 its own dedicated full-speed Wi-Fi connection, so that multiple devices can connect at the same time without slowing down the network.
Advanced parental controls help you to prevent users from visiting inappropriate websites, for example keeping young children safe from viewing adult content. You can also restrict the times that each device or guest account can access the internet, by applying scheduled time limits.
With 4 Gigabit LAN ports on RT-AC5300, you can connect up to four Ethernet-compatible devices simultaneously. Non-Wi-Fi devices like your Smart TVs, game consoles, set-top boxes, media players, NAS storage devices and more in your home now can have their own exclusive dedicated ports, making RT-AC5300 your digital home hub.
With built-in USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports, you can connect USB-enabled devices, such as external storage drives, printers, or a 3G/4G dongle to your ASUS router and share them conveniently with other users via Wi-Fi. And with USB 3.0, you can enjoy up to 10X faster data transfer speeds.
RT-AC5300 features Link Aggregation, which combines two teaming LAN ports (the 1st and 2nd port) into one superfast wired connection for up to 2 Gbps using two Gigabit Ethernet cables5. With Link Aggregation enabled on your NAS, clients can unlock unprecedented transfer speeds.
RT-AC5300 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.
