The RT2600ac is a powerful wireless router for homes and small offices seeking to understand, control, and secure their network. Now coming with mesh Wi-Fi technology, its coverage becomes easily expandable with additional Synology MR2200ac.

Engineered for performance

Supporting MU-MIMO and the latest 802.11ac Wave 2 standard, RT2600ac enables up to 800Mbps and 1733Mbps on the 2.4GHz and 5GHz radio respectively. Reach 2Gbps combined bandwidth with Dual WAN, and easily optimise your network with minimal performance loss even with app-based traffic control.


Top software experience

The soul of RT2600ac is the Synology Router Manager (SRM). It takes the complexity out of your network, and makes what's happening in the traffic visible and straightforward.


Streamlined setup

Whether you’re doing it from a smartphone or computer, setting up RT2600ac is a breeze. Getting your Internet up and running takes just a couple of minutes.


Powerful connectivity management

Smart WAN allows RT2600ac to fail-over or load-balance between dual ISP connections to ensure Internet availability, whereas QuickConnect makes enabling remote access incredibly simple.


Granular traffic control

App- and device-based Quality of Service (QoS) lets you set higher bandwidth for gaming or VoIP applications while throttling BitTorrent downloads. Real-time and historical traffic data are organized into easy-to-read charts and reports, so you can identify any bottlenecks or anomalies.


Wi-Fi made smarter

RT2600ac's excellent Wi-Fi throughput is backed by a modern experience - automatic, scalable, and highly customisable.

  • Smart Connect: Not sure if 2.4GHz or 5GHz is better? RT2600ac automatically steers a device to the band that gives it the strongest signal and speed. No more manual switching.
  • Real-time monitoring: See the Wi-Fi transfer rate and connected devices at a glance
  • Scalable mesh Wi-Fi - Add additional MR2200ac to expand coverage even further, while still enjoying a single Wi-Fi name, enhanced roaming, and auto-optimisation
  • Custom guest network options - Set up a welcome portal for people connecting to your guest Wi-Fi. Tools like scheduling, auto password change, and MAC filters help keep unwanted connections away

Intelligent web filtering & parental controls

The Safe Access package on RT2600ac doesn’t only offer a free cross-platform solution for you to create a kid-friendly online world. It also gives you a better understanding of each user and device’s Internet usage, including those IoT gadgets silently working in the background.



Create a user profile to manage all devices someone owns at once, while letting LAN and guest Wi-Fi profiles take care of other unspecified devices connecting to your network.


Time management

Set time limits and schedules. Encourage your kids to use their time wisely, and reserve some quality time for family.


Internet filtering

Safeguard kids from adult-only content and search results, or even set up a whitelist of approved websites for younger children. Web filters can be scheduled to ensure no social media during homework hours.


Usage insights

Any device accessing the Internet in the middle of the night when they shouldn’t be, or anyone being blocked by web filters? You see it here.

Business-grade security

In addition to a track record of fast and continuous updates to guard itself against emerging threats, RT2600ac boasts a series of advanced features to protect the entire network from the router level.


Threat prevention

Leveraging intrusion prevention technology, Threat Prevention inspects incoming and outgoing traffic on your network and automatically blocks malicious packets from passing through – all while retaining stellar Internet speeds.


Built-in security databases

Integrating Google Safe Browsing and other DNS and IP threat intelligence databases, Safe Access prevents devices from accidentally accessing websites related to malware, phishing, botnets, social engineering, and more.


Next generation WPA3

Support for the latest Wi-Fi security protocol equips home, business, and open Wi-Fi networks with better defenses against snooping and other attacks.


Best-in-class VPN server

VPN Plus’s Synology SSL VPN and WebVPN give you fast, intuitive, and secure access to your internal network, whereas site-to-site VPN allows you to connect multiple remote offices together. A long list of other supported protocols and management functionality is available to give IT admins better control over VPN connections.
