TEAM UP YOUR ROG GEAR FOR VICTORY

ROG First is a new feature of the ROG GameFirst V network acceleration software for ROG motherboards, laptops and desktops* that ensures seamless operation with ROG routers, resulting in smoother online gaming performance with shorter ping times and minimized lag.

FOR ALL TYPES OF GAMERS

TRIPLE-LEVEL GAME ACCELERATION

ROG GT-AC2900 features triple-level game acceleration to boost game traffic every step of the way from your device to the game server. You'll experience lower ping times and reduced latency for a better online gaming experience.

CERTIFIED CLOUD-GAMING ROUTER

GeForce NOW is a cloud gaming service that turns your non-gaming system into a powerful gaming rig, and connects you to over 400 top games, like PUBG and Fortnite on popular PC game stores like Steam and Uplay.

GeForce NOW recommended routers ensure up to 90% of Wi-Fi bandwidth is dedicated to gaming and undergo rigorous testing to deliver the best possible experience and lowest latency for cloud gaming.

STACK THE ODDS IN YOUR FAVOR

When it comes to ranking, a great connection to your game server is critical. Game Radar lets you check ping times to different servers* before you play, so you can choose the best one and gain the competitive edge.

SIMULTANEOUS GAMING AND VPN

If you're fed up with virtual private networks dragging down game performance, ROG has the answer. ROG Rapture GT-AC2900 has a killer feature called VPN Fusion, which lets you run a VPN and an ordinary internet connection simultaneously! So even if other network users need to use a VPN, you can still enjoy maximum gaming speeds.

ROG GAMING CENTER: RULE YOUR NETWORK

The ROG-themed Gaming Center interface provides easy point-and-click control over every incredible feature.

PORT FORWARDING IN 3 STEPS

Open NAT on GT-AC2900 cannot be easier, it only takes 3 steps. No more frustrating and complicated process needed.

GAME CONSOLE PRIORITIZATION

GT-AC2900 is compatible with all game consoles including PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. It also features an ROG gaming port that automatically prioritizes your game console within the network to optimize your gaming experience.

FREE YOURSELF FROM CONGESTED Wi-Fi

Connecting your devices to the 5GHz band on ROG GT-AC2900 lets you avoid the often-congested 2.4GHz band, while providing up to 2X faster Wi-Fi speeds. Additionally, optional dynamic frequency selection* (DFS) unlocks up to 15 of the least-congested channels on the 5GHz band to provide even more bandwidth for gaming.

MAXIMUM COVERAGE. REMOTE CONTROL.

With AiRadar beamforming technology and specially designed antennas, GT-AC2900 delivers a focused Wi-Fi signal to all your game consoles and other wireless devices, maximizing range and speed to let you play anywhere in the home. And, if you need to adjust network settings, diagnose internet problems or configure port forwarding, the ASUS Router app lets you get it done easily right on your smartphone without having to walk to your router or access a web interface.

WHOLE-HOME MESH Wi-Fi

ROG GT-AC2900 can be connected with other ASUS AiMesh-compatible routers to form a mesh Wi-Fi system that provides seamless coverage to every corner of your home, letting you game anywhere and move around freely without Wi-Fi dropouts.

BE IN THE GAMING ZONE, NOT A DEAD ZONE

The walls in many homes can degrade LTE wireless signals, slowing down your smartphone's connection and resulting in a poor online gaming experience. With its high-performance antennas, ROG GT-AC2900 delivers a strong Wi-Fi signal that easily passes through walls to provide smooth and stable online gaming performance anywhere in the home and provides the additional benefit of saving on monthly LTE service fees.

FREE YOURSELF FROM CONGESTED WiFi

Use 5GHz to get 2X faster WiFi speed while avoiding interference from other 2.4GHz devices. If you turn on dynamic frequency selection (DFS) mode, ROG Rapture GT-AC2900 even unlocks 15 least-congested channels in the 5GHz bands, providing more bandwidth for all of your gaming.

FULL SPEED FOR MULTIPLE GAMERS

MU-MIMO technology gives up to four compatible devices their own dedicated full-speed Wi-Fi connection, ensuring peak performance for multiple connected devices without slowing down the network

FORTIFIED FRONTLINE NETWORK SECURITY

GT-AC2900 features AiProtection Pro powered by Trend Micro to defend your network from external attacks and threats by neutralizing them before they can reach your devices. AiProtection Pro even protects devices that cannot install anti-virus software such as game consoles, smartphones and IoT devices giving you added peace of mind. The lighting on GT-AC2900 can also be set to remind you when attacks arise.

ADVANCED PARENTAL CONTROLS

ROG GT-AC2900 features advanced controls that let you easily manage children's internet usage and keep them safe online. Restrict internet access during scheduled times and block specific categories of mobile apps and websites. Flexible controls let you create separate rules for individual family members and apply them to all of their devices.
