AiMesh is incredibly easy to use, but that doesn't mean it's not powerful. When it is part of an AiMesh network, RP-AX56 still provides comprehensive features and easy central control of all settings from the ASUS Router mobile app or ASUSWRT. So great features like AiProtection, QoS and Parental Controls work across the entire network, ensuring that no-one can bypass them by connecting to a different router. Just remember to always connect your highest-specification router to your internet service.
Seamless, Pain-Free WiFi
When used with AiMesh routers, RP-AX56 can create a single, whole-home WiFi network, so you don't have to switch networks as you move throughout your house. AiMesh keeps an eye on the signal strength to your device, and switches it seamlessly to another source if necessary. All you have to do is enjoy it! If you prefer separate network names for each frequency band, you can do that as well — AiMesh is designed to work the way you want!
One or Multiple WiFi Name, the Choice is Yours
When extending current AiMesh network, you can choose to keep only one WiFi name (SSID) for the entire home network for easier usage; or separate WiFi names so you can dedicate different WiFi band for different usage. For example, dedicate the 5GHz band to gaming devices with higher bandwidth needs and 2.4GHz band for normal usage.
Easy Setup - Extend WiFi from Non-AiMesh Router
If you don‘t have an AiMesh router, setting up your RP-AX56 WiFi 6 range extender is still easy. It doesn't require messing with discs, or even a mouse and keyboard. You can use the ASUS Extender app to easily transfer your router's login information to RP-AX56 with just a few taps; or use the Pair buttons on RP-AX56 and your router for instant automatic setup.*
