Most of us upgrade to new smartphones and more powerful laptops but still end up complaining about low and inconsistent internet speeds. What we forget to do is upgrading our WiFi routers to keep up with the new network bands supported by our high-end smartphones and laptops. New smartphones support A/C WiFi connectivity while our routers are stuck at b or g bands. The new Asus RT AC5300 is not just the most powerful, but, also one of the best routers out there.
Want to play online games without losing connection or slowing speeds or stream 4K videos from your smartphones straight to your television sets? This router will handle it all. The Asus RT AC5300 Router has 8 antennas and is perfect for people who require high-speed internet in a larger space. The router is massive and twice the size of a regular large router and the 8 antennas make it look like a spider.
