Most modular mesh systems are limited to a single SSID, whereas AiMesh offers roaming with a single SSID for the entire coverage area.

AiMesh-enabled routers retain all their original networking features and capabilities — including ASUS AiProtection, Adaptive QoS, and Parental Controls.

ASUS has announced AiMesh, a feature upgrade for ASUS routers that allows users to easily create a flexible and powerful whole-home Wi-Fi system using any compatible ASUS models.

Most modular mesh systems are limited to a single SSID, whereas AiMesh offers roaming with either a single SSID for the entire AiMesh coverage area, or alternatively with separate SSIDs for each frequency band.

AiMesh-enabled routers retain all their original networking features and capabilities — including ASUS AiProtection, Adaptive QoS, and Parental Controls. Additionally, the features of the primary router are shared with the entire AiMesh network, regardless of the models used. All settings and preferences are centrally controlled and synced to all routers in the AiMesh network.

ASUS AiMesh is a free update for selected ASUS routers, and is available worldwide. Currently supported routers are: RT-AC68P, RT-AC68U, RT-AC68UF, RT-AC68W, RT-AC68R, RT-AC68U V2, RT- AC1900, RT-AC1900P, RT-AC86U, RT-AC2900, RT-AC88U, RT-AC3100. ROG Rapture GT-AC5300, RT-AC5300, ASUS Blue Cave and ASUS Lyra Series routers will be ready later in 2018.
