ASUS has just announced a new Wi-Fi 6 router. It's called the RT-AX86U and it will only be available from Singtel.

The RT-AX86U is a dual-band AX5700-class Wi-Fi 6 router that's powered by a 1.8GHz quad-core processor.

The design is classic ASUS, reminiscent of the now legendary RT-AC68U. What's noteworthy about its standing design is that it takes up less footprint that most of your modern routers.

When coupled with compatible Wi-Fi 6 clients, it can deliver speeds of up to 861Mbps on its 2.4GHz network and 4,804Mbps on its 5GHz network.

As for ports, you have two USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A ports, a single Gigabit Ethernet LAN port, and four Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports.

In addition, there's also a single 2.5Gbps port that can be used in WAN or LAN mode. Crucially, this means you'll be able to take full advantage of speedy 2Gbps fibre plans.

On top of these, the RT-AX86U also has features like ASUS AiProtection Pro, Adaptive QoS, and parental controls.

The RT-AX86U also supports ASUS' AiMesh technology and the latest WPA3 security protocol.

The ASUS RT-AX86U will come bundled with Singtel's 1+1Gbps Fibre Pro Gamer Bundle. And for a limited time, new customers can sign up online at singtel.com/gamerbundle at S$64.90 per month (U.P S$69.90). The first 50 subscribers will also receive a free ROG Ranger Backpack.

New and existing Singtel customers can also add their hands on this router by topping up S$17 per month to their existing plans.
