Peace of mind when spending this much on alchemy means a lot. Coming up to speed in a few days using just dongknows.com after 8 years coasting on the last installation means a lot. Having an easy go of it after moving cross country means a lot. Your personal and timely responses mean a lot. The GT-AXE16000 shares the same non-detachable antenna design as the GT-AXE11000, but the antennas now have bigger and stronger joints — they feel much less flimsy than those of the predecessor. The Asus GT-AXE16000 has stronger but less flexible antennas than the GT-AXE11000. Among other things, you only extend them halfway outward. Which port would be best suited to connect to the Synology NAS given the performance issue that you saw with the 10gbps port?

ASUS ROG Rapture GT-AXE16000 (left), TP-Link Archer AXE300 (right) (Image credit: Samuel Contreras) I have ASUS at home, which means I am familiar with the menu. I like the fail-over options. Not sure how well Synology has that executed. We have Synology now in out current office, but not Dual WAN. I also like ASUS mobile app much better, but it is not like I need to look at it anytime. So if you think there is any reason to consider Synology, then let me know. The biggest competition for the ROG Rapture GT-AXE16000 reads a lot like a list of the best Wi-Fi 6E routers. A good chunk of these routers are swapping one of their 5GHz bands for a 6GHz one which makes sense on the surface, but when you remember that most of the wireless devices we'll use for the next couple of years don't have Wi-Fi 6E, it doesn't quite make sense for enthusiasts. Quad-band routers give you the best of Wi-Fi 6 plus Wi-Fi 6E so you don't have to give up a thing when you move from one of the best Wi-Fi 6 routers to a Wi-Fi 6E model. Beneath the circle are three buttons. The Status button displays all of the above-mentioned information, while the AiMesh button transforms the circle into a network map that shows all of your connected nodes. The Mobile Game Mode button takes you to a screen where you can give your mobile device high bandwidth priority for online gaming.I own the Asus GT-AXE16000 and am by and large happy with it. I have, however, noticed something I think is a “bug”? I wanted to send a screenshot but see no option for that so, description of issue: My understanding of ASUS mesh is that you wire from router 1GB port to wan port of the satellite in wired mode. Does that mean that I go from 1Gb (AX88) to a 2.5Gb connection in an AXE16000 setup or can I wire satellites to the free 10Gb ports? I am unsure if that is a valid connection (ie not use the Wan port on the satellite and go 10Gb to 10Gb)

Keep in mind that my test was done by running iperf on the router itself (without NAT – I was doing LAN to LAN test, with the “client” being a second router connected in AP mode). CPU usage was showing all three cores (I ran three threads) were 100% occupied by iperf itself, and the scaling was about right when compared to running iperf in a single thread. The interface allows access to a router’s many settings and features, some listed below. Savvy networking enthusiasts will love that though it can be overwhelming for novice users. Standard setup process Wi-Fi standards: Wi-Fi 7 | Wi-Fi 6E| UNII-4 (5.9GHz) | Wi-Fi 6 | What is Wi-Fi? | Wi-Fi antennas (dBi) | Wi-Fi broadcasting/signal power (dBm)ZenWifi Pro ET12 in the most-centrally located ethernet run on the second floor wired directly to GT-AXE16000 via 10Gbps BASE-T port It is a power house with an engine that should easily be able to handle all those settings being on or off. IMHO In My Humble Opinion. However, once turned on, the router’s look changed completely. Asus strategically designs the ROG Aura light to create layers of light through the glass when lit up.

On the Wi-Fi front, the GT-AXE16000 is easily the fastest router to date in my testing methodology. Its 10Gbps LAN port and powerful Wi-Fi specs showed! Easy firmware update: Asus pushes out firmware updates regularly to fix issues and improve its routers’ performance and function. You can choose to update manually or turn on auto-update.

Don’t give up any 5GHz speed with the upgrade to 6GHz Wi-Fi.

There are also additional LEDs at the edges of the mirror. Altogether, they become quite a show, enough to make you want to place the router out in the open.

The Asus ROG Rapture GT-AXE16000 is a phenomenal piece of home networking hardware at a prohibitively high cost. Presently, it’s as good as a Wi-Fi router can be, and we likely have to wait till Wi-Fi 7 to have more capable hardware. While still imperfect, the Asus GT-AXE16000 is my first recommendation (almost) without reservation. Get one — or start saving up — today! Thanks for sharing, I’ll keep that in mind for if ASUS Tech Support is able to duplicate and fix the issues I reported to them. Looking forward to hear if disabeling all those settings will fix your issues and increase the 10 GB to work as 10 GB and not 3.x GB. I seriously doubt it. Still, the throughput is solid for this router, but not record-setting. On our 2.4 GHz near test, with the client positioned 5 feet away, the throughput measured at 123.6 Mbps. When we increased the distance to 30 feet away on a higher floor of the router, the speed dropped off quite a bit to 72.2 Mbps.The standard set of network settings and features: These include IP reservation, Port-forwarding, so on and so far, and even some Alexa Skills. The biggest thing you might have heard about the GT-AXE16000 is that it’s a Quad-band router. But I’m not too crazy about this — Quad-band is not a novelty. If you’re new to this concept, this post on Dual-band vs Tri-band vs Quadband explains it in detail. Among Asus’s Multi-Gig hardware, the RT-AX89X has two 10Gbps ports, but one is an SFP+. Additionally, the GT-AX6000 and the ZenWiFi Pro ET12 (as well as the XT12) each have two 2.5Gbps ports. Others only come with a single Multi-Gig port.
