Features

Unbeatable Hardware

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 4 x 4 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 fast, and can show up to a 50% improvement in total throughput on a heavily-loaded network with multiple clients!

RT-AC87U is not only fast, but looks stunning too. Inspired by the gamer-centric ASUS Republic of Gamers G Series laptops, 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!

  • Up to 2X Faster USB Transfers via Wi-Fi – When transferring files to and from SuperSpeed USB 3.0 devices over Wi-Fi, our tests show that RT-AC87U can be up to 74% faster than a typical tri-band router, and up to twice as fast as a router with a single 1.2GHz dual-core processor.
  • Up to 50% More Total Throughput in Busy Multi-Client Networks – In tests 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 2.0. 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.

 

Groundbreaking Wireless Performance

Enjoy a new level of wireless performance, with 2334Mbps of combined 802.11ac and 802.11n bandwidth. With class-leading speeds of up to 600Mbps on the 2.4GHz band – thanks to Broadcom® TurboQAM™ technology – and up to 1734Mbps concurrently on the 5GHz band, which is even faster than the latest tri-band 3 x 3 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 laptops, smartphones and other wireless devices.

Unrivaled Signal Coverage

Boasting a true four-stream, four-antenna (4 x 4) design, RT-AC87U gives you up to 465 square meters (around 5,000 sq. ft.) of wireless coverage. That's 33% more than the latest generation tri-band routers, 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 increases.

  • Multi-user MIMO Technology – RT-AC87U is the first router to support MU-MIMO technology for massively-improved performance in multi-device environments. MU-MIMO can communicate at full 801.11ac speeds with multiple compatible devices, unlike single-user MIMO (used in all existing dual- and tri-band routers), which communicates with only one device at a time.

 
  • AiRadar Beamforming – ASUS AiRadar intelligently strengthens wireless connectivity using 802.11ac universal beamforming technology, high-power amplification and exclusive ASUS RF fine-tuning. This gives RT-AC87U up to 33% better coverage than 3-stream antenna designs. In real-world tests, RT-AC87U lets you stream two 4K videos flawlessly at its maximum range.

Life in the Fast LAN!

For the fastest wired networking performance, RT-AC87U comes with a dedicated Gigabit WAN port, five 1000Mbps Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports (one of which can be used as a second WAN port), and a 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. RT-AC87U also features Link Aggregation, a technology normally only found in enterprise-grade equipment, and which can increase wired network speeds up to 2Gbit/s with suitable hardware.

 
  • Hardware NAT – Removes the bottleneck between the Internet and the home network, giving WAN-to-LAN performance that's between two to five times faster than a traditional software-based NAT.
  • Link aggregation – Connect a Windows 8.1 PC with two wired Ethernet connections to double the LAN performance.
  • Dual WAN support – Configure one of the LAN ports as a WAN to use two Internet connections, either to share Internet traffic between them or so that one can be used as a backup connection should one connection fail.

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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

ASUSWRT – The Powerful, User-Friendly Interface

RT-AC87U features the enhanced ASUSWRT graphical user interface, which gives you easy access to the 30-second, three-step web-based installation process. 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.

 
  • Network map – Comprehensive network map shows you at a glance details of what devices are connected to your router and their connection status.
  • Multiple guest networks – Lets you create up to six secure guest networks with customized access times and online restrictions.
  • Adaptive QoS – ASUS Adaptive Quality of Service (QoS) optimizes inbound and outbound bandwidth on both wired and wireless connections. Applications and tasks can be prioritized easily using drag-and-drop presets for gaming, media streaming, VoIP, web browsing and file transfers.

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 detects malware and other intrusions before they reach 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, giving you total peace of mind.

 
  • Router security scan – Scans your router for any security vulnerabilities and recommends options for improving protection.
  • Router security scan – Scans your router for any security vulnerabilities and recommends options for improving protection.
  • Infected device detection and blocking – Prevents infected devices from communicating personal information and/or infected status to external parties.
  • Vulnerability protection – Protects the router against common Internet-based attacks and exploits.
  • Web and app filters – Keyword and URL filters to block access to unwanted websites and apps.
  • Time scheduling – Schedule time limits for specific guest accounts and devices .

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 service, 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.
