ASUS DSL-AC56U AC1200 Dual-Band VDSL/ADSL/Fibre Wireless Modem Router

The ASUS DSL-AC56U is a ADSL/VDSL 802.11ac 2x2 Wi-Fi modem router, with combined dual-band data rates of up to 1167Mbps. On the 5GHz band, 802.11ac gives 867Mbps wireless data rates, while 2.4 GHz 802.11n performance supports 300Mbps. Compatible with ADSL2/2+, ADSL, VDSL2, fiber and cable services, the top specification completes future-proofing.


Enhanced signal range and stability
• ASUS AiRadar intelligently improves wireless connections by using exclusive ASUS RF fine-tuning. This ensures extended coverage, dynamic data speed increases, and enhanced stability.

Gigabit Internet browsing with hardware NAT
• Equipped with a powerful hardware NAT acceleration engine and built-in Gigabit Ethernet, the DSL-AC56U gives you full Gigabit performance. Its WAN-to-LAN throughput performance is over 900Mbps, which is more than 4.5 times that of traditional software-based NAT Gigabit routers. This reduces the possibility of bottlenecks on fast internet connections.

Add external storage, printers, and other devices to your network
• Make DSL-AC56U your media and device center. With built-in two USB ports, connect external storage drives, printers, scanners and many other USB-enabled devices to share with your networked PCs. Having your devices networked, lets you access them easier than ever before.

Better online multitasking at up to 300,000 sessions
• Massive online multitasking at up 300,000 concurrent data sessions gives you 20 times the capacity of mainstream routers, allowing for great performance with no slowdown even during heavy traffic sessions. Multiple downloads occur at the same time to create a smoother user experience. More data sessions translate into quicker and buffer-less HD streaming plus lag-free online gaming even while you download content, so you can do more without compromising your online lifestyle.

VPN server and VPN client support
• DSL-AC56U offers a simple VPN server and VPN client setup to access a home network or the internet privately and securely. Easily set up a VPN server with PPTP protocol support with no need for paid VPN services or a dedicated VPN server. DSL-AC56U also turns your network-connected devices into VPN-enabled clients via PPTP and L2TP protocols without additional VPN software required.
