Best for Gaming, 4K Streaming and Your Smart Home

RT-AC5300 instantly takes your wireless network to the next level. The latest NitroQAM™ technology boosts the Wi-Fi speeds for everyone and every device on your busy network. With the widest-ever Wi-Fi coverage, tri-band Smart Connect, enterprise-level link aggregation, revolutionary 8-client MU-MIMO plus total security, RT-AC5300 is as well-rounded as it is top-of-the-line.


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-AC5300 delivers a combined 5334 Mbps Wi-Fi speed, ensuring everyone on your network can enjoy smooth streaming and low-latency online gaming.


Free 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 Network®(GPN®) from WTFast® automatically performs route optimization, choosing the most efficient route for game packets, resulting in consistently-lower ping time and minimal packet loss. With RT-AC5300 this optimization is free , so users can enjoy the results on virtually every competitive multi-player online game — at no extra cost1!


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-AC5300 you can confidently turn off these utilities while you game, ensuring every available drop of resource is spent enhancing your game.


Bandwidth for All

RT-AC5300 is the master of entertaining, able to support as many devices as people you invite over and can even maintain multiple simultaneous Full HD 1080P streams. Beyond content consumption, the RT-AC5300 enables a smarter home, supporting IP cameras, thermostats and a variety of devices you don't even own yet.


More Bands Means More Devices

Having an ASUS RT-AC5300 is like having three wireless routers in one. The two separate 5 GHz wireless bands — each with speeds up to 2167 Mbps — and the single 1000 Mbps 2.4 GHz wireless band all work simultaneously. This means you can enjoy lag-free online gaming, smooth 4K video streaming and uninterrupted file downloading on every device connected to your home network.

Tri-band Smart Connect –

Automatically Chooses the Best Band Available for You

Tri-band Smart Connect intelligently assigns each device to best available band. This means you get better range and faster, more reliable connections consistently without the need to manually re-connect to the best band available.


8X Capacity Wi-Fi with Revolutionary MU-MIMO Technology

MU-MIMO gives every compatible device6 its own dedicated full-speed Wi-Fi connection, so that multiple devices can connect at the same time without slowing down the network.

In fact, RT-AC5300 is able to connect up to 8 MU-MIMO-compatible clients at each device's maximum speed simultaneously, unlike standard single-user MIMO where individual devices have to wait for sequential transmissions7.


AiProtection – Your Digital Playground is Safe

ASUS AiProtection powered by Trend Micro™ ensures your online experience is safe and secure. By combining automatic vulnerability detection, malicious site blocking and parental controls, AiProtection keeps everyone safe and sound.


Parental Controls

Monitor and Restrict Internet Activity for Any User

Advanced parental controls help you to prevent users from visiting inappropriate websites, for example keeping young children safe from viewing adult content. You can also restrict the times that each device or guest account can access the internet, by applying scheduled time limits.

Extensive Connectivity Options

With 4 Gigabit LAN ports on RT-AC5300, you can connect up to four Ethernet-compatible devices simultaneously. Non-Wi-Fi devices like your Smart TVs, game consoles, set-top boxes, media players, NAS storage devices and more in your home now can have their own exclusive dedicated ports, making RT-AC5300 your digital home hub.


Your Sharing Center

With built-in USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports, you can connect USB-enabled devices, such as external storage drives, printers, or a 3G/4G dongle to your ASUS router and share them conveniently with other users via Wi-Fi. And with USB 3.0, you can enjoy up to 10X faster data transfer speeds.

Link Aggregation, More Devices Go Faster!

RT-AC5300 features Link Aggregation, which combines two teaming LAN ports (the 1st and 2nd port) into one superfast wired connection for up to 2 Gbps using two Gigabit Ethernet cables8. With Link Aggregation enabled on your NAS, clients can unlock unprecedented transfer speeds.



  • RT-AC5300 owners get the basic WTFast® solution free. The free version is limited to accelerating one device at a time, and includes WTFast® technical support. Users can pay to upgrade to the premium version for simultaneous acceleration of multiple devices.

+ It has good range and provides a reliable signal - all of our internal walls are brick. The Tri-Band feature makes it easy for family members to connect devices to the most suitable network. I like the fact that at a touch of a button you can switch the WiFi signal off at bedtime.
- It takes an age to boot up (perhaps that's why there is a button to easily switch the WiFi signal off) and it is expensive, but then you get what you pay for.
