Download Utility & Software Asus ROG Rapture GT-AX11000 Wifi 6 for Windows. I currently have a Fritzbox 7580 as a router on the first floor, connected via WLAN to another 7580 in repeater mode on the ground floor and this connected via WLAN to a Fritz Repeater 1750e in the basement. In other words, everything in series with the Fritz Mesh system. Everything runs without errors and the mesh is convincing all along the line. From the first floor to the first floor, I manage about 15 MByte/s (not bit). Of this, 4 Mbytes / s arrive in the basement.

I wanted to take this configuration to a new level and was ready to invest almost 800 EUR for it. Behind the Fritzbox 7580 as a router, the first Asus GT-AX11000 (308 EUR) should sit via a 1Gb/s LAN cable, then the second Asus GT-AX11000 in the EC and an Asus RT-AX92U (160 EUR) via AIMesh AIMesh in the basement. Everything in series again.
With that I achieved a throughput of 40 Mbytes / s in the EC and 20 Mbytes. Compared to the Fritz solution, a massive increase if it were stable. For me, the system hung up regularly, so that all routers had to be restarted. But much worse. I kept having the problem that I could connect to the WLAN with my smartphones or new laptops, but the devices indicated that there was no internet access. That too was only possible by restarting the entire system. That was a no-go and that’s why everything went back. (And yes, the latest drivers for the clients were installed)
Furthermore, I wanted to continue to use my “myFritz” access, which was only possible without any effort if the first Asus GT-AX11000 was running on the first floor in AccessPoint mode. It struck me that the Asus’ integrated switch could no longer be configured. In my case, I wanted to use the advertised link aggregation. Asus can only interconnect 2 ports anyway. I couldn’t test whether it was dynamic or static. In the menu it only shows 802.3ad. That way, another reason to buy was gone for me.
The overview of the connected devices also leaves a lot to be desired, regardless of whether it is AP or router mode. Not all devices are displayed. Some are always missing, even when accessed. Fritz makes a lot better.
It would be a shame if the system were stable, if it wouldn’t keep my clients locked out and if the AIMesh would run at the same level as Fritz would have, it would have been worth it to me based on the data throughput. But the system has too many quirks. Now I try again with an increase with additional Fritz repeaters and if that doesn’t work, I start slitting open my walls and pulling cables.
Complete Fritzbox 6590 Cable with accessories replaced by the GT-AX11000 router. This Asus ROG Rapture GT-AX11000 connected and all WiFi devices connected. User interface clearly laid out, WiFi range now down to the last room, was previously only possible with Accesspoint. Thanks to the 3-fold WiFi coverage, a good division is also possible.
