Overview

ASUS RT-N18U - wireless router - RT-N18U

RT-N18U features top-of-the-line hardware specifications. An 800 MHz processor with high clock speed delivers fast and responsive USB and WAN to LAN performance; while TurboQAM technology raises the 2.4 GHz band speed from 450 Mbps to 600 Mbps for a 33 % boost. 128 MB flash and 256 MB RAM ensure a massive data pipeline of up to 300,000 data sessions and multitasking capability, making it perfect for gaming or high-load network environments. The energy-efficient ARM-based CPU reduces power consumption to even help you save on the bills. In addition, ASUS AiRadar intelligently strengthens wireless connectivity using universal beamforming, high power amplification and exclusive ASUS RF fine-tuning for a 150 % increase in coverage, so even legacy 802.11b/g/n clients can benefit from this technology. RT-N18U also incorporates more user-friendly and intuitive software.
  • Fast, reliable and powerful
    At the heart of RT-N18U is a powerful but energy-efficient ARM Cortex -A9 processor running at 800 MHz that ensures fast and responsive performance. The 128 MB of flash memory and 256 MB of DDR3 RAM further enhance multitasking performance and allow up to 300,000 concurrent data sessions - making RT-N18U ideal for multimedia applications such as HD video streaming, online gaming and file sharing.
  • Boost your Wi-Fi performance
    RT-N18U features TurboQAM technology that boosts 2.4 GHz wireless speeds from 450 Mbps to up to 600 Mbps for 33 % faster Wi-Fi performance. Now everything you do online is done faster.
  • Gigabit Internet surfing with Turbo NAT
    Equipped with Turbo NAT and built-in Gigabit Ethernet, RT-N18U gives you full Gigabit Internet performance, making its WAN to LAN throughput up to 2-5 times that of traditional software-based NAT Gigabit routers. Turbo NAT handles simultaneous wired connections, achieving maximized total concurrent speeds. So go ahead: game, stream and download from desktops, notebooks, tablets, smartphones and game consoles at once minus the performance loss.
  • Extend and strengthen your wireless connection
    ASUS AiRadar intelligently strengthens wireless connectivity using universal beamforming technology, high power amplification, and exclusive ASUS RF fine-tuning. This ensures extended coverage, dynamic data speed increases, and enhanced stability and is backward compatible with 802.11b/g/n clients. Because connection strength varies based on your environment, RT-N18U uses three external antenna to detect wireless device locations and shape transmissions so they're optimized for the fastest, most stable connection strength.

  • Powerful online multitasking with 300,000 data sessions
    Massive online multitasking at up 300,000 concurrent data sessions gives you 20 times the capacity of mainstream routers for great performance with no slowdown even during heavy traffic sessions. Download multiple files at once, experience smooth HD streaming and play lag-free online gaming all at once. Do more without compromising your online lifestyle.
  • VPN server and VPN client support for total security and privacy
    RT-N18U offers a simple VPN server and VPN client setup to access a home network or the Internet privately and securely.

  • Easily select your preferred mode
    ASUS routers with EZ switch give the flexibility of simple router, repeater, access point and media bridge mode selection. Router mode is the standard wireless and wired operation, while repeater mode extends existing Wi-Fi coverage, and access point mode connects with wired routers to instantly add wireless capabilities. Media bridge mode enables instant wireless for all your Ethernet devices. Switching occurs on the hardware level, meaning true 4-in-1 versatility with no delays and no complicated menus to go through.
