Product Description:

ASUS RT-AC87U AC2400 MU-MIMO Wireless Gigabit Router

Enter a new era of wireless performance with faster-than-incredible speeds, the widest-ever coverage and more control and security than you ever thought possible. RT-AC87U delivers the world's fastest speeds of up to 1734Mbit/s at 5GHz — even faster than tri-band 3x3 routers — plus class-leading concurrent 600Mbit/s speeds at 2.4GHz for an amazing total bandwidth of 2334Mbit/s! This means RT-AC87U gives you lag-free online gaming, silky-smooth 4K/UHD video streaming, and effortlessly copes with even the most bandwidth-demanding tasks.

With a separate high-gain antenna for each of the four spatial data streams, this power-packed router gives you true 4x4 multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO) wireless performance that smokes the competition — and it delivers top performance for all your wireless devices, even those using older Wi-Fi standards. As with all ASUS networking products, you get the very best support with the widest range of device compatibility, plus free firmware updates for years to come — so your RT-AC87U will always be at the forefront.

RT-AC87U is designed for pure performance — as well as its main 1GHz dual-core processor, RT-AC87U also has a separate dual-core processor that's dedicated solely to 5GHz 4x4 Wi-Fi related tasks. This means that compared to routers with a single 1.2GHz dual-core processor, RT-AC87U has Wi-Fi-to-USB transfer speeds that are up to twice as fast3, and can show up to a 50% improvement in total throughput on a heavily-loaded network with multiple clients!4

RT-AC87U is not only fast, but looks stunning too. Inspired by the gamer-centric ASUS Republic of Gamers G Series notebooks, RT-AC87U is designed with Stealth Fighter-like curves that exude power and sophistication. It's VESA-mount-compatible too, so you can literally take RT-AC87U to new heights on your wall!
• Double dual-core processors - Up to 2X faster USB transfers via Wi-Fi: While RT-AC87U succeeds RT-AC68U's decent USB 3.0 network storage performance, its USB transfer speed over Wi-Fi has been largely improved. When transferring files to and from SuperSpeed USB 3.0 devices over Wi-Fi, our tests3 show that RT-AC87U can be up to twice as fast as a router with a single 1.2GHz dual-core processor.
• Double dual-core processors - Up to 50% more total throughput in busy multi-client networks: In tests4 simulating a heavily-loaded network with three wired and two wireless clients, PCs, RT-AC87U's hardware NAT and dedicated Wi-Fi processor helped it deliver a total throughput (2.4GHz, 5GHz and NAT) up to 50% faster than a typical router with a single 1.2GHz dual-core processor.
• Dual USB ports: Share printers, 3G/4G (HSPA+) cellular dongles or USB storage devices over your network! Thanks to SuperSpeed USB 3.0, transfer speeds are up to 10 times faster than USB 2.02. What's more, the ports are widely-spaced for convenient and easy access when using bulky devices — not sandwiched together as on some competing routers. The easy-to-use USB application puts you in full control of tasks for all connected USB devices, including media streaming, file sharing and file downloads.
