WiFi 6 Technology:

The 802.11ax (WiFi 6) standard has very favorable capabilities for gamers’ needs. High connection speed with low latency is definitely the most important need of a gamer to be able to experience 4K games with the highest quality.

Due to the presence of valuable technologies such as MU-MIMO, Beamforming and the existence of  160 MHz channels, The amount of coverage and communication speed has increased significantly in this gaming wifi router.

The overall speed of Asus ROG Strix GS AX5400 is up to 5400Mbps. 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 serve the clients for routine tasks such as web surfing and checking emails.

Asus GS AX5400 Range:

Technically, the router’s coverage range depends on several factors like the antenna design, signal amplifier and radio frequency (RF) technology. Asus Company has designed and developed these factors based on every router’s technical requirements to increase the coverage.

The “AiRadar”, which is a proprietary Asus technology, uses these three factors to increase the signal coverage of the router. This technique has enabled this router to cover a house with an area of about 2500 feet.

Mobile Game Support:

Asus ROG Strix GS AX5400 is one of the few routers on the market that has such an interesting feature. You can easily take the router to this Mode by tapping a button on the App. In this case, the router intelligently recognizes the communication needs of the mobile game. Then provides you with the best mobile game experience by utilizing all software and hardware capabilities.

Gaming prioritization:

This asus wifi router has another special features for players. By which the router intelligently assigns a higher priority to using the device’s software and hardware resources for online game traffic.

  • Game Port : in which a LAN port is dedicated exclusively to servicing Game Consoles, and all traffic coming in from this port is serviced with the highest priority.
  • Game Boost: which is a Optimized QOS for gaming. This feature allows you to give a higher priority to the game applications than the other apps.
  • Gear Accelerator: which specifically enhances the performance of specific devices on the network. In this case, you can specify a particular client device in the network and the router serves it with a much higher priority than other clients.

Fantastic Security:

Asus GS AX5400 has an internal security system designed and implemented by Trend Micro ( a famous cloud-based security company). This feature is calledAsus AiProtection, this system protects your gaming network from all security risks and neutralizes them before they reach your network and devices. Even if your computer’s security system is turned off.

This feature of the router can be a solid barrier against external security risks. In addition to these benefits, the level of security of this system is so high that it can detect and limit a pre-infected system immediately after connecting to the network and prevent it from from publishing the infection everywhere

Fusion VPN capability:

On every wired and wireless networks, a series of equipment may require the use of a VPN service. The other devices may require normal Internet use.

Usually routers can’t cover these two types of needs at the same time. Users either have to use the regular Internet or use a VPN connection. But this router (by using Fusion VPN capability) makes it possible and you can simultaneously service a group of users from the VPN route and route the others through the normal Internet connection.
