"Best router out."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Plug and play with So much control, traffic management, parental controls, app blocking, etc. No drama with multiple devices. Awesome, easy to use UI and app that goes with it. Great ping for gaming, great range and stability on both bands. Can set up multiple wireless networks and guest networks. 8 gigabit ports… The list goes on. Worth the money.

Purchased on Mighty Ape

You won't be disappointed getting this router, works well with NZ UFB services, connect it directly into ONT without issue. I've found that the firmware on this is better than Asus RT-AC87u router.

NitroQAM™ technology –Seamless Experience
Whether you're gaming online in a heated competition or streaming a live event in 4K/UHD, lag and buffering are simply not an option. NitroQAM™ (1024-QAM) technology on the RT-AC88U delivers a combined 3167 Mbps Wi-Fi speed, ensuring everyone on your network can enjoy smooth streaming and low-latency online gaming.

Free GPN™ Game Accelerator Inside
Ping time and variance are critical technical parameters that affect responsiveness in online gaming, and their values depend heavily on the route game packets take to and from their destination. The Gamers Private NetworkTM (GPN™) from WTFastTM automatically performs route optimization, choosing the most efficient route for game packets, resulting in consistently-lower ping time and minimal packet loss. With RT-AC88U this optimization is free , so users can enjoy the results on virtually every competitive multi-player online game — at no extra cost2!

Free up PC system ‘Resources’ during gameplay
Networking is only half the equation when it comes to game performance. Anti-virus programs and 3rd party applications can consume valuable CPU and memory that could be reallocated to your game. With AiProtection on the RT-AC88U you can confidently turn off these utilities while you game, ensuring every available drop of resource is spent enhancing your game.
