Asus ROG Rapture GT-AX11000 AX11000 Tri-Band 10 Gigabit WiFi Router, Aiprotection Lifetime Security by Trend Micro, Aimesh Compatible for Mesh WIFI System, Next-Gen Wifi 6, Wireless 802.11Ax, 4x Giga

Lowest price ever for this beast on amazon and bestbuy which are price matched at 333.99$

amazon: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/produ...AM10XP0JXS - > In stock Jan. 4, 2020 You can order now and it will ship when back in stock

bestbuy: https://www.bestbuy.com/site/asus...Id=6321917 ---Still available!

not sure how long it will last, but it's currently cheaper to buy brand new, than to get amazon's refurbished product. Previous deal was 4$ cheaper at newegg on slickdeals frontpage. And I personally much prefer dealing with amazon or bestbuy, so I am willing to pay 4 dollars for that convenience.

I was in the same boat but Tomato Shibby solved these issues for me. With a USB NAS attached the CPU hovers around 2% with CTF enabled and memory usage is about 50% free regularly. 186 days uptime currently. If you have it laying around still you might give Shibby a go. Totally changed my R8000. Netgear kills their good hardware with horribly programmed firmware unfortunately...
I'm in this exact boat with 2 R9000 routers. One I got a replacement after the r8000 died 13 months after purchase. I badgered them into sending a replacement, and they sent the R9000. It worked great at first, so I bought a second one to bridge using the .ad bandwidth.

That was ruined as soon as I updated the firmware on the routers. It took weeks, and I finally got them back to working by reverting to original firmware. So, I am scared crapless of ever updating, because from reading the web it's still not solved. And even the remote Nighthawk Router software tells me every time I log in that my "flagship" router is not supported by their software.

I'm getting 2 of these to replace the Netgear minefield and using the Asus AIMesh instead of the traditional bridge functions. SO looking forward to it and selling the Netgear stuff for $150-$200 each to offset the upgrade.

Things that were not fully agreed upon before wave 1 launched like longer range AX signal, Uplink MUMIMO and spatial reuse will become an official standard in wave 2 gear. Just like N and AC before it, there is nothing holding a manufacture to upgrade wave 1 gear to wave 2 standards. So pretty much buying wave 1 product while it works, is a incomplete design to the AX standard as a whole. Wave one means your just a giant beta tester for a manufacture, the joys of being a early adaptor.
Thank you Smilie

Wifi 6 is more then just speed. Instead of boosting the speed by much for individual devices, Wi-Fi 6 is all about improving the network when a bunch of devices are connected.
With households adding all kinds of wifi enabled gadgets, this will become much more useful as time goes on and when smart devices start shipping with wifi6 compatibility. Probably next year it will be the norm, but it isn't quite yet. Most of us have Wifi5 since that is about 6 year old tech.

Just something to consider for fellow bargain hunters - depending on what you are looking for in features vs value, TpLink C5400x still reviews better at a few places and is cheaper at $240.

"GT-AX11000 doesn't replace the TP-Link Archer C5400X as our top pick for gaming. The TP-Link Archer C5400X offers greater throughput, longer reach and better handling of common obstructions – and all for less money." (Tom's)

https://www.amazon.com/TP-Link-AC5400-Band-Gaming-Router/dp/B076HRZJ66

That being said, Asus is a better general brand for this stuff, no question in my experience. I think this is more indicative that even at a discount, the Asus tech is still somewhat overpriced new platform versus performance gains. The more unique Asus 2.5GbE network port adds a few extra dollars to manufacture and could be useful to someone, though most wont be able to use it until Internet providers up their game.

Glad to see it's starting to slowly work its way down .... Thanks OP.

Something everyone is overlooking, which is the reason I bought this router - It supports WAN aggregation, so I can pull 1.2 gig through the 2.5GLan port to my PC. 240mbps faster then I could get through a single gigabit line. It's the best router on the market that supports both WAN aggregation and a 2.5G ethernet line.

Sometimes it's just luck of the draw, plus between 4k streaming on my tv, computer, gaming, xbox etc. It doesn't hurt to have something that can handle it. Failure is just something that happens with electronics, sometimes you get unlucky. I know people running routers for 5+ years. The r8000 was crap to begin with, the ac88u was a great router until issues starting arising that seemed suspiciously like some form of hardware failure.

It's just one of those things, this router is mostly needed by no one, but if you can afford it, it's certainly not going to hurt you.
lol didn't even read the name when I quoted, how you been? You can PM if you prefer, to avoid further hijacking this post lol

This is a great router - I have one. Before this, I had the Netgear rax80 and the rax120. This ax11000 keeps the IPV6 connection always active, even upon restarts. It also does WAN aggregation easily, and has three bands that all work well. As the OP stated, the current Netgear equivalent, the rax200, is $600 retail. I'm posting this just to let people know so that they don't have to go through the learning curve that I did. Just upgrade the firmware as soon as you get it. Then enjoy!
I agree. I had the Netgear RAX120 and TP-Link Archer AX6000 before settling on this one.

I liked the RAX120 coverage and speed, out of the box WPA3 (though ASUS beta firmware also has WPA3), but the interface isn't great and you miss features like the TrendMicro protection which both the ASUS and TP-Link offer. I liked the TP-Link because it offered the best value for the price, but I could never get LAGG to work and it annoyed me that the 2.5Gb port was limited to WAN only.

Yes the ASUS is expensive but considering everything you get, I feel like it's worth it over any competing WiFi 6 router currently available. I would never consider the over-priced AmpliFi Alien because it has no port over 1 Gb and for whatever reason they can't even manage tri-band WiFi 6...

So you're pulling gigabit like you're suppose (125 megabytes in a giga)? You're just seeing quality network equipment for once instead of the low quality network interfaces all these consumer devices uses.

WAN aggregation isn't helping you unless you have an ISP providing two separate 1Gig uplinks/handoffs. Even then only special use cases benefit from link aggregation.

Do yourselves a favor and buy a Ubiquiti EdgeRouter X or USG and a UAC-AC-Pro instead of this piece of junk. I tried it and was very disappointed in it's range and reliability. Client devices were constantly losing connectivity all over the house. I put the Ubiquiti gear in the same location and it's been working flawlessly since day 1 with a much better range. I'm also very confident that it will last longer than Asus's cheap hardware. I've burned through enough of these crap consumer routers over the last 15 years to know.

Also, for those wanting to stream XBox... with this setup I have flawless full-quality streaming to my laptop over WiFi. I was planning to wire the XBox for the lowest latency possible, but it turns out, I don't really need it. I'm playing stuff like Ori and Overcooked with no issues.

Odd seeing all the negative post on both this router and Wifi 6 in general.

As an early adopter I jump on this router as ASUS released it, paying $450 for my first one. I just pulled the trigger on this deal to add a 3rd to my AIMesh setup, replacing my last GT-5300. I can personally say with my setup and needs I have absolutely benefited from the upgrade. I recognize I'm not a typical home user but not many people that'll drop over a couple hundred dollars on a router are. Every new piece of hardware has the same narrow target audience, how many people need or benefit from the latest video card, CPU or any other PC component?

If you're an early adopter and push your network to its current limits this is a good device.

I have anywhere from 65 to 85 devices on my network at any given time. The entire family (7) have iPhone 11 Pro Max's. These alone make the router worth it! My Plex server is throwing out gigs of data ever hour, 24/7.

One dumb change ASUS made was reducing the lan ports to 4 vs. 8.

Thanks OP for the deal.
