There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
It comes with a uk plug but work fine in Australia with a travel adapter. If I could find an Australian version of the clip for the power adapter I’d look at getting one only to reduce the size of the plug at the wall. Updated with Aus firmware without issue. All in all though a great product for a great price.
I'm using the latest firmware and tried to disable AI security guard, that makes no difference.
I decided to return it, as it was causing too much of my time and trouble with connecting all the devices, it wasted a lot of my time.
Also this router doesn't come with the power adaptor suitable for use in Australia.

WiFi range has been further increased, there are no more dead spots within the whole 2 floor house. Increased LAN ports (going from 4 to 8) really does allow whatever you need to connect the router via Ethernet cable.
UPDATE - after moving properties, I'm no longer with Virgin Media but now with Hyperoptic (1Gbps). This router connects directly via the WAN port, ensuring that the cable supports 1Gbps (using Cat 6), and I can safely say that I'm able to achieve near maximum download and upload capabilities both wired and wireless. This router is truly a beast! In the year that I have been using it, it's never let me down.
All devices I connected showed a considerable drop in connection speed between router and wireless NIC; my PC, using an ASUS AC88 Wi-Fi card showed a connection speed of 150mb, my laptop using an Intel AC8260 card showed the same and these two cards would show 866mb with my previous ASUS router, RT-AC88U. My work laptop and my wife's laptop, all using Intel cards all showed a lower connection speed. I tried driver updates etc. but could not improve the connection speed. Maybe a chipset issue and ultimately not necessarily an issue where browsing internet goes but when paying £300+ for a router I expect improvements or at least a similar service, not a backward step.
So I sent it back and picked up another AC88U and haven't looked back.
It's going to be a while before AX is a standard everywhere; when I have more AX capable devices than AC I'll reconsider but for now I get the best performance from my AC88U...and it also has 8 gigabit ports.
I love ASUS products so it was tough to send back a new next gen router but it just wasn't worth it.
Just a note on 30 March 2020: I purchased the TP-LINK Archer AX11000 model and it is stable - it does not have some features that this one has but the features it does have all work. I used to have major connection issues with my Nest Hello doorbell on the ASUS AX11000 but the doorbell has been flawlessly connected with no dropouts since yesterday when I installed the TP-LINK Archer AX11000, on the ASUS AX11000 I could see dropouts almost immediately and frequently which did not happen so far on the TP-LINK. Also, some devices that would not connect to the ASUS are connecting normally to the TP-LINK. A nice bonus, the TP-LINK has 8 LAN ports and surprisingly even a USB-C port, so I could connect all my wires devices are retire my Netgear ProSafe 5 port switch. My recommendation still stands, DO NOT buy the ASUS GT-AX11000, it uses the exact same chipset as the TP-LINK therefore it is the firmware on the ASUS that is full of bugs. Shame on ASUS, they only care about marketing and shouting that they're first and that they have a hundred features but the features are broken and they simply don't care after they've sold you their goods.
Last update: 27 March 2020:
I've had enough, really. After months since my last review, ASUS released two firmware updates and completely borked this product.
Some devices just won't connect anymore, that's after even going through the trouble of doing an "emergency firmware restoration" as advised by ASUS support. This product is not worth a penny, if it worked fully then sure it would be amazing but with all the issues it's just simply not worth it. Do not let all their "gaming" marketing BS fool you. One thing that is really dishonest is saying that this router is 10G WiFi, well it definitely is NOT, it does not work this way ASUS, you cannot just make a sum of all the speeds from the three bands and pretend this supports 10G at once. I already knew that when I bought the router, by the way, I am just saying they try to market this thing like the second coming of the messiah and it's a disaster, badly supported, you wait patiently for new firmware and when it does finally come it breaks more than it fixes and I am done with that, having to set my network up from scratch after every update with lots of static DHCP entries, VPN settings, DDNS settings, WiFi name/channel/bandwidth and more to name but a few. NO THANK YOU.
Returned for good. Please heed my advice, do not buy this, you may be thinking I am exaggerating in that case please go ahead it is your money you invest how you like, this will work okay for a few hours or even days but then all the troubles will start, and if not, they will on the next firmware upgrade so if you ignore that update when it's security related like the Kr00k vulnerability, you really are asking for trouble (stealing bank account details through sniffing unencrypted traffic for example).
Let's all teach ASUS a lesson where it hurts: in their pocket - do not buy. Maybe then ASUS will learn and start taking it seriously. Don't be a beta tester for a router that's being sold for almost half a grand.
Update January 2020:
I believe I wrote the original review around July or August. It's now January 2020 so I've used this device for a while.
Firmware updates are non-existent, have been stuck on the same firmware since I initially plugged it in and updated it. Why is this important? Because WiFi 6/AX is a brand new technology which means it doesn't "talk" perfectly between products of different vendors. This router in particular has a Broadcom radio, whereas my PCIe card has an Intel AX200 radio. The Intel drivers are updated frequently, whereas the router firmware which would include WiFi radio improvements is not updated that often, so if Intel and Broadcom fixed their bugs but ASUS has not updated the Broadcom firmware for the router, it doesn't matter what Intel did because the issue will persist.
And what is the issue, you may ask?
Well, the issue is, when I originally wrote my review I was using this with an AC card, and got 1300/1300Mbps (that's Down and Up). So, GREAT! I thought from there, it could only improve, right? Wrong! I purchased the Intel AX200 PCIe card and the speed with this is worse than my older on-board AC WiFi that comes with the Rampage V Edition 10 motherboard. How bad? Well, with the AC card like I said, I was able to achieve 1300/1300Mbps transfers, and got 3 out of 4 signal bars on Windows 10 on "bad days", but mostly the signal bars were always full.
With this new AX card which would supposedly double the speeds, I am currently connected with 2 out of 4 signal bars, it never goes higher, and the speeds are 649/216 (Mbps), that's Down/Up.
As you can see, Half of my old Down speed and shockingly, 6x slower on the Upload!!!!!!!!!!! Crazy and unacceptable.
I cannot blame Intel, they are updating their drivers frequently. I can only blame ASUS for this. I did not spend almost £400 on a router to get worse performance than using an older version of WiFi. Ok, you think expecting the speed to double is too much, but I would think getting at least the same as before would be reasonable, otherwise what exactly am I paying for? With an AX card I'm getting worse coverage and worse speed, this is crazy and this device is not ready for the market yet. Based on ASUS lack of speed to update its firmware (still no WPA3 by the way) I would not buy this. So many 5 star reviews, I would question how they used their equipment, did they use this router in AX mode with an AX client, and were they both almost touching? Or were they using in a more conventional setting where you'd perhaps have the router downstairs near the cable coming from the street, and a PC upstairs in an office? And, did they compare previous speeds to the speeds using this device? If previous device used to give you a certain speed and signal strength you should expect at least the same, but expecting an improvement over a brand new and much more powerful and expensive device is not unreasonable.
This device is not worth the price, do not buy it, get a mature and well supported AC router instead, AX devices are too new and full of bugs, that's without adding ASUS's laziness on top.
I got my first order two days ago, and upon configuration I was shocked at how bad it was. Worse than my Netgear Nighthawk R7000, I actually wrote a 1-star review totally trashing this AX11000, but I decided to take it down and ask Amazon for a replacement. I originally set it up for a return as I thought the performance was unacceptable for a device costing £380.
I am glad I changed my mind and went for the replacement instead. This thing F-L-I-E-S.
I have a 200 Down/ 20 Up connection from Virgin Media, use their Hub 3 in Modem Mode, connected to this router.
I am getting the full speed I pay for, and I'm using a Wifi 5 (AC) card on my Rampage V Edition 10 motherboard, it supports up to 1300Mbps speeds but I don't move anything on the local network so all I wanted was a good router that could deliver the full VM broadband speeds wireless and this does exactly that.
It would have cost me more to wire up my house for Ethernet, and once I start getting Wifi 6 (AX) devices the speeds will get even better for local transfers. Once VM starts selling their 1Gbps package this means I can start using it straight away.
Unfortunately on the current firmware there is no WPA3 authentication, however ASUS is working on it based on my research. Also, OFDMA is not currently active but since I have no WiFi 6 devices on my network it makes no difference.
Solid device, buy it, and if for any reason you're not getting good performance go for a replacement first, you might be unlucky like me and the replacement might work perfectly like it did in my case.
Let me start with making clear that I have used ASUS routers before and been broadly pleased with them. I find setup intuitive and the App is well thought out. ASUS routers have good QoS, parential control and DoS protection. They are highly configurable.
So, the RT-AX92U offered the promise of previous ASUS router implementations while embracing the new WiFi 6 standard in a mesh that takes on and beats Netgear Orbi and Linksys Velop competitors.
Unboxing the units gave the feeling of promise fulfilled; the form factor is neat and the initial setup is trouble free. A "great" connection is established between the router and the node. The firmware for both units was updated to the current version in force as of February 2020.
Within 24 hours, the whole thing was unravelling. The router would reboot every 20 minutes. It didnt like the XBox One very much and the node disconnects regularly. The units run very warm and I note that RAM utilisation sits at 93%. The Linux logs show a constant tale of error after error. The hardware seems under specified for the job it is being asked to perform. I have 35 wired and wireless devices in my network and the system should cope with that.
So, two weeks in and the product is not fit for purpose. It is being returned and I am going back to a WiFi 5 mesh system. If you live in a home office or have more than 20 devices in your network, I cannot see how these units will work for you. WiFI 6 Routers may not be ready yet...give it another year.
So, to return to the top of this review: it is not written by anyone with a bias. I bought it because of previous positive ASUS experience, but I cannot see how the RT-AX92U gets the positive reviews it seems to. I can only presume that it is not being put through its paces. Please note that Amazon group together the reviews of different models of ASUS router and the star ratings may confuse some as they do not reflect the rating of one particular model. A filter of the reviews along model type would be useful.
Unfortunately, I cannot recommend this product at all based on my experience.
