Description

Fastest Speed. Farthest Coverage. Easy Setup.
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 1734 Mbps at 5G Hz — even faster than tri-band 3x3 routers — plus class-leading concurrent 600 Mbps speeds at 2.4 GHz for an amazing total bandwidth of 2334 Mbps! 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.

UNBEATABLE HARDWARE
RT-AC87U is designed for pure performance — as well as its main 1 GHz dual-core processor, RT-AC87U also has a separate dual-core processor that's dedicated solely to 5G Hz 4x4 Wi-Fi related tasks. This means that compared to routers with a single 1.2 GHz 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!

GROUNDBREAKING WIRELESS PERFORMANCE
Enjoy a new level of wireless performance, with 2334 Mbps of combined 802.11ac and 802.11n bandwidth. With class-leading speeds of up to 600 Mbps on the 2.4 GHz band — thanks to Broadcom® TurboQAM™ technology — and up to 1734 Mbps concurrently on the 5 GHz band, which is even faster than the latest tri-band 3x3 routers, RT-AC87U leaves the competition standing.

At the forefront of technology
RT-AC87U doesn't lead others, it dominates, offering the best current-generation performance for all your notebooks, smartphones and other wireless devices.

UNRIVALED
SIGNAL COVERAGE
Boasting a true four-stream, four-antenna (4x4) design, RT-AC87U gives you up to 465m2 (around 5,000ft2) of wireless coverage1. That's 33% more than the latest generation tri-band routers5, making it the ideal choice for large homes and multi-floor buildings. Thanks to AiRadar beamforming and unique multi user-MIMO (MU-MIMO) technology, the more devices you use the more the throughput increases6.

LIFE IN THE FAST LAN
For the fastest wired networking performance, RT-AC87U comes with a dedicated Gigabit WAN port, five 1000 Mbps Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports (one of which can be used as a second WAN port), and hardware-accelerated NAT. Unlike the traditional software-based NAT used in most other routers, RT-AC87U's hardware NAT removes the bottleneck between the wired LAN and the internet, allowing you to get the most out of modern super-fast broadband connections.

TESTED FOR COMPATIBILITY
RT-AC87U, like all ASUS networking products, is subjected to exhaustive compatibility testing during its development. RT-AC87U works flawlessly with a vast range of adapters, media players and other wireless devices to ensure the best performance — it even supports the latest-generation Xbox® One and PlayStation® 4 game consoles.

Powerful online multitasking
With its massive data pipeline of up to 300,000 data sessions, RT-AC87U has around 20 times the networking capacity of conventional routers for exceptionally smooth performance.

Time Machine® support
Supports Time Machine® backups with Apple devices.

WPS
Lets you connect devices instantly with a press of the WPS button.
VPN support
Configure a VPN server or turn your network-connected devices into VPN-enabled clients — with PPTP and OpenVPN protocol support — with no need for paid VPN services or a dedicated VPN server.

THE POWERFUL, USER-FRIENDLY INTERFACE
ASUSWRT
RT-AC87U features the enhanced ASUSWRT graphical user interface, which gives you easy access to the 30-second, 3-step web-based installation process8. It's also where you can configure AiCloud 2.0 and all RT-AC87U's advanced options. ASUSWRT is web-based, so it doesn't need a separate app, or restrict what you can change via mobile devices — you get full access to everything, from any device that can run a web browser.

AIPROTECTION WITH TREND MICRO™
FOR ADVANCED SECURITY
AiProtection, incorporating state-of-the-art, three-pronged security from Trend Micro™, makes RT-AC87U one of the most secure home routers you can buy. As well as providing some of the most advanced parental controls in any mainstream router, it blocks malicious addresses and intrusions for your PC or device, and alerts you if an infected device is connected. Potential weaknesses such as password strength and operating system vulnerabilities are also monitored at all times. Moreover, AiProtection even protects Wi-Fi devices without an installable security program such as smart TV, game console, and smart home devices, giving you total peace of mind.

Router security scan
Scans your router for any security vulnerabilities and recommends options for improving protection.

CREATE YOUR OWN PERSONAL CLOUD
ASUS AiCloud keeps you close to your data wherever and whenever you have an internet connection. It links your home network and online storage service9, giving you access to your files using the AiCloud mobile app on your iOS, Android smartphones or via a personalized browser URL. You can share photos instantly to services like Facebook, Flickr or Dropbox directly from the AiCloud interface. Even better, AiCloud can be connected to another compatible router to expand your personal cloud even further.

BOOST THE CONNECTION SPEEDS AND MAXIMIZE THE HARDWARE
Tuxera solutions bring enhanced performance with significantly reduced CPU so more applications can run at the same time. With special optimization for network storages you can quickly access and transfer your data

COMPATIBLE WITH ENBLINK FOR SMART HOME CONTROL
Enblink allows you to do things like set up a complete lighting control solution to accompany the RT-AC87U experience. But it also gives you access to your devices anywhere you can take your mobile phone or tablet. Take a look at how easy it is to get started.
