Asus RT-AX53U Review

In response to the increasing number of linked personal and IoT devices, network density has increased significantly, pushing the existing WiFi standard to its limitations.

In addition to providing future-proof technologies, higher network efficiency, faster WiFi speeds, greater coverage, and improved battery life for connected devices, the latest WiFi 6(802.11ax) standard also provides a significantly better networking experience for users, resulting in a significantly better networking experience for users.

The RT-AX53U is a 2×2 dual-band WiFi router that offers 80MHz bandwidth and 1024-QAM for much quicker wireless connections than most other routers on the market. Its overall networking speed of about 1800Mbps (574Mbps on the 2.4GHz band and 1201Mbps on the 5GHz band) is 1.5 times quicker than that of 802.11ac 2×2 dual-band routers, according to the manufacturer.

802.11ax technology, which utilizes a breakthrough mix of OFDMA and MU-MIMO technology, delivers up to 4X higher network capacity and efficiency in densely populated areas than previous generations. When using previous-generation 802.11ac WiFi, only one device may be connected at a time to each network channel, resulting in inefficient use of the available bandwidth.

When the WiFi 6(802.11ax) standard is implemented, each channel is divided into tiny sub-channels, allowing signals from numerous devices to be packaged together and sent at the same time, decreasing latency for a smoother, more responsive WiFi experience.

AiProtection, an ASUS commercial-grade network security solution powered by Trend Micro Smart Home Network, is included inside the RT-AX53U router. Through the use of AiProtection, all linked devices are secured, even if they do not have their own antivirus capabilities — such as Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

AiProtection prevents typical internet-based assaults from reaching the network before they can be executed, and if an infected device is identified on the network, AiProtection immediately disables it to prevent it from transmitting any personal information to hostile sites.
