Crafted for flexible connectivity whether on the move or at home, the ASUS RT-AX57 packs a stand with built-in wall mounting support out-of-the-box for versatile placement even in compact spaces, alongside a sling hole for attaching the carrying cord.

Additionally, the one-click sliding switch on the router’s side allows quick activation of a pre-configured VPN connection, the toggling of the WiFi or LED light, and various customizable functions.

When using public WiFi through a wireless internet service provider (WISP), users can also create a private hotspot with strengthened security. Plus, AiMesh support allows users to easily extend WiFi coverage by adding other compatible routers to the mesh network.
