Video review from the channel ASUS ROG BALTICS

When you plug this network router into your modem via Ethernet, you get plenty of fast ports and a very strong wireless network. It is possible to connect from points that did not receive Wi-Fi before, and to fix slow or problematic networks.

This router has a lot of very good features.

To provide drives with fast internet and close several specific tasks, such as support for Wi-Fi 6 and a special game mode, we decided to update the router.

ASUS ROG Strix GS-AX5400 router is an excellent gaming router - beautiful as usual, but besides that, it's also functional.

The design and structure of the monitor is simply ROG. I cannot describe it any better way. It looks fantastic.

Considering it behaved almost like it was on a cable, this ASUS router takes my GOLD medal!
