ASUS RT AX 58U WiFi 6 Router has an commercial-grade security system designed and implemented by Trend Micro Security Company. This feature is called Asus AiProtection and is constantly checking router incoming and outgoing traffic.
This system has valuable IPS capability, which is able to intelligently detect and prevent intrusion into your network quickly.The advanced parental control can also block specific websites and mobile app types.
The Asus company owns several high-end technologies and has designed and developed these factors based on every router’s technical requirements to increase the router’s range. This techniques has enabled Asus RT AX58U to cover a house with an area of about 2500 feet.
Support for the 802.11ax (WiFi 6) standard has given this router very favorable capabilities. In this standard the coverage and speed of communication has increased dramatically due to the presence of valuable technologies such as BSS Coloring, MU-MIMO, Beamforming, as well as support for communication channels with a width of 160Mhz.
The overall speed of this device is up to 3000Mbps, which is serviced in 2 separate frequency bands, one of which is used to communicate high-speed devices such as Game Consoles and the other to communicate clients for routine tasks such as web surfing and checking emails.
Technically, when several WiFi networks with the same channel are in the neighborhood of each other (for example, your WiFi network and your neighbors), unwanted interference occurs between them. This interference causes neighboring routers to receive each other’s signals.
But the problem is that since the router is not able to recognize the signals of the clients of its own network, it has to refrain from sending until it receives a signal (whether it belongs to its own network or to neighboring networks). This causes a sharp drop in speed in noisy networks.
WiFi 6 technology has solved this problem easily. Routers compatible with this technology identify their signals with a tag (Color). In this way, WiFi 6 routers can recognize the signals received from their network’s clients and ignore the rest.
The price of this asus wifi router is much more reasonable than other WiFi 6 routers in this level. The price is around 160$ which is a low price for a full-featured router.
