The world's first quad-band WiFi 6E gaming router

The trailblazing ROG Rapture GT-AXE16000 is the world's very first quad-band WiFi 6E gaming router, delivering incredible speeds of up to 16000 Mbps. We've unlocked the full potential of the four frequency bands — 2.4 GHz, two 5 GHz* bands, and 6 GHz — with 160 MHz channels in the 5 GHz and 6 GHz bands to bring you the fastest speeds possible.
*The 160MHz bandwidth may be unavailable in the 5GHz band in some regions / countries due to regulatory restrictions.

Built as the ultimate AiMesh router

By default, one of GT-AXE16000's two 5 GHz bands is used as a dedicated backhaul connection to the central router, so your devices still have full tri-band access to the 2.4 GHz band, the second 5GHz band and the 6 GHz band.

5 GHz-2 dedicated mesh backhaul and other three bands are free for connection

Built as the ultimate AiMesh router

Alternatively, with WiFi 6E AiMesh nodes you can configure a 6 GHz backhaul connection, providing fast and interference-free transmission between nodes for an optimized mesh experience.

6 GHz mesh backhaul and other three bands are free for connection

WiFi 6E - 6 GHz band

WiFi 6E gives you up to seven* additional high-speed 160 MHz channels, for multi-gigabit speeds with stable and consistent connections. It dramatically increases network capacity while reducing bandwidth congestion, delivering higher performance for every WiFi 6E device.

*Subject to regulatory limitations, and co-existence with 5 GHz WiFi. Number of channels may be less than 7. If no 6 GHz SSID is displayed, please check whether your OS and client device are fully licensed to support the newly released 6 GHz band. You can check with your OS and client device provider for the WiFi 6E driver release schedule.

Flexible network port configuration

ROG Rapture GT-AXE16000 has two dual-function 10 Gbps WAN/LAN ports, four 1 Gbps LAN ports, and a 2.5 Gbps WAN port. This flexibility gives you the ability to deliver massive bandwidth to your wired devices, and take advantage of ultra-high-speed internet connections in any scenarios.
