Create and Extend Your AiMesh Wi-Fi System

ASUS RP-AX56 is a Wi-Fi 6 AiMesh extender and Wi-Fi range extender that lets you easily expand your current wireless network to deliver powerful and seamless connectivity to every corner of your home. In addition to whole-home Wi-Fi, when used with AiMesh routers, RP-AX56 can extend those AiMesh routers′features.

Incredibly Easy, but Incredibly Powerful

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 Wi-Fi

When used with AiMesh routers, RP-AX56 can create a single, whole-home Wi-Fi 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!

Without Roaming

When moving between rooms you have to switch manually to the best Wi-Fi source. You can't always tell which one has the best signal.

With Roaming Technology on AiMesh

AiMesh automatically and seamlessly connects your devices to the router with the strongest Wi-Fi signal, wherever you are. Wi-Fi is simple again!

One or Multiple Wi-Fi Name, the Choice is Yours

When extending current AiMesh network, you can choose to keep only one Wi-Fi name (SSID) for the entire home network for easier usage; or separate Wi-Fi names so you can dedicate different Wi-Fi band for different usage. For example, dedicate the 5 GHz band to gaming devices with higher bandwidth needs and 2.4 GHz band for normal usage.
