ROG GS-AX5400 Wi-Fi 6 Gaming router review: More speed and lower ping – Android Central

Gaming routers have become a bit of a meme with huge antennas and more power than you could ever use, but that doesn’t mean they have to be that way. The ROG Strix GS-AX5400 from Asus makes no apologies for its gaming credentials but shows restraint in enough places to easily pass the spouse test. Beyond that, it’s compact despite having plenty of speed to support a gigabit connection with ease with dozens of devices.

The bigger question is whether it can hold its own in this very crowded category that includes several Asus models. The price is on the high side, but with so many software features packed in, an attractive design, and materials befitting a premium piece of consumer hardware, it gets very close to being one of the best gaming routers you can buy. Whether this is this router you choose will come down mostly to personal taste.

Bottom line: The ROG Strix joins the respected Strix gaming lineup offering great Wi-Fi speeds thanks to its AX5400 Wi-Fi 6 connection with 160MHz support. It also comes with a dedicated gaming Ethernet port to give your gaming packets VIP treatment and to keep your ping times not only low but consistent.

The Good

  • Subtle matte black design looks great (even the RGB)
  • Fast speeds at every test location
  • Strong software package with parental controls
  • AiProtection Pro makes it easy to stay secure

The Bad

  • Limited store availability
  • More expensive than other AX5400 routers
