Introduction

We’re constantly surprised by how much networking has evolved in recent years. It wasn’t, or at least doesn’t feel, that long ago that you might have one or two devices connected and that was it. Now, with smart TVs, online consoles, PCs, laptops, mobile phones and tablets, even the most technologically poor of us has plenty of things connected to our network, and that’s without getting into the world of a smart home.

Not only is it therefore important to have a rock solid internet and home networking solution, but one that enables you to move files around quickly and will be able to provide a strong signal throughout your house. Whether it’s to keep little Jimmy happy on his XBOX, or your partner streaming TV in the bedroom, fast stable networking is a must.

Which leaves us with an important question. If you are going to splash out on a fancy router, do you want one that’s only going to be good for a year or two or, as full-fibre becomes available to more than just those of us who live in big cities, do you want one that’s going to be futureproofed for the next five or more years? If the latter, perhaps the new flagship ASUS ROG Rapture GT-AXE16000 router will be the solution you crave. It’s certainly not priced for the average user, but it has so many features that you’ll definitely not be left wanting for connections, security or throughput.

We’ve got the full setup in the office today, including the ASUS ZenWiFi Pro ET12, which gives you enough WiFi coverage for a 6000 sq ft space. But naturally we’re focusing mainly upon the dead spider aesthetic of the ROG Rapture GT-AXE16000.

Technical Specifications

As befits a flagship model, the GT-AXE16000 supports everything you could possibly desire, from basic WiFi and LAN, all the way up to 6GHz WiFi 6E and 10GBe, as well as all the controls you desire to ensure your traffic is secure, as well as being blisteringly quick. The specifications table is enormous for this beast of a Router, covering all the features that denotes is as a flagship model, as well as the internal processor that puts some gaming setups to shame. This is without mentioning the handy app that allows you to configure things and route your traffic with the minimum of fuss.
