Move Beyond Inflexible WiFi Systems to AiMesh

AiMesh overcomes the limitations found in other whole-home, mesh-networking Wi-Fi systems. Although these systems can be convenient all-in-one solutions, they often come with a limited choice of Wi-Fi speeds, software features and upgrade paths. With AiMesh, you can create a completely flexible whole-home Wi-Fi system tailored to your needs, while continuing to enjoy all the functions of each individual ASUS router, such as extreme Wi-Fi performance and exclusive advanced networking features.

AiMesh Vs Mesh

AiMesh overcomes the limitations found in other whole-home, mesh-networking Wi-Fi systems. Although these systems can be convenient all-in-one solutions, they often come with a limited choice of Wi-Fi speeds, software features and upgrade paths. With AiMesh, you can create a completely flexible whole-home Wi-Fi system tailored to your needs, while continuing to enjoy all the functions of each individual ASUS router, such as extreme Wi-Fi performance and exclusive advanced networking features.

Seamless, Pain-Free WiFi

AiMesh can create a single, house-wide network name so there's no need to constantly switch between networks as you roam around your home. 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!

Your Network
Your Choice

AiMesh enables creation of separate SSIDs for each frequency band, while still providing seamless roaming within the network. This gives you increased flexibility, allowing you to, for example, dedicate the 5GHz band to gaming devices or a smart TV.

Wired Inter-router Links for Faster, More Stable WiFi

AiMesh supports Ethernet backhaul, enabling users with on-wall Ethernet jacks in their home to create a wired connection between the routers in their network. This not only provides fast and reliable inter-router communication for even more stable Wi-Fi, but also dedicates the entire 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands to wireless devices for smoother connections.

Incredibly Easy, but Incredibly Powerful

AiMesh is incredibly easy to use, but that doesn't mean it's not powerful. With AiMesh, all routers can still use all their own features, as well as all the features of the other routers - with 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.
