The ASUS RT-AC56U leads the way in next generation routers, offering dual-band Gigabit wireless with all-new 802.11ac Wi-Fi. Its powerful dual-core CPU and 256MB DDR3 RAM provide the best performance in both 2.4GHz and 5GHz. The 5GHz band works at up to 867Mbps, while the 2.4GHz frequency tops 300Mbps, serving an incredible combined bandwidth of 1167Mbps. That's three times the speed of standard 2x2 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. Together with USB 3.0, the ASUS AiCloud app makes cloud access anywhere easy. This smart mobile application expands seamless ASUS cloud experiences to Android and iOS devices, so you can quickly access, sync, stream, and share content. 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
