Synology Router RT2600ac
Blazing-fast Wi-Fi with up to 2.53Gbps combined wireless bandwidth to supercharge your Internet experience. RT2600ac is a powerful wireless router for homes and small offices seeking to understand, control, and secure their network. Now coming with mesh Wi-Fi technology, its coverage becomes easily expandable with additional Synology MR2200ac.
Engineered for performance
Supporting MU-MIMO and the latest 802.11ac Wave 2 standard, RT2600ac enables up to 800Mbps and 1733Mbps on the 2.4GHz and 5GHz radios respectively. Reach 2Gbps combined bandwidth with Dual WAN,1 and easily optimize your network with minimal performance loss even with app-based traffic control.

Not only is the RT2600 one of the fastest Wi-Fi routers on the market, it also has the most comprehensive set of features. If youre looking to build a robust, non-compromising, secure home network, this is the router to get.
This may be my favorite router now when it comes to parental controls. Synology, in my opinion, is years ahead now of anybody that I’d consider to be their competitors in this space.
Top software experience
Whether you’re doing it from a smartphone or computer, setting up RT2600ac is a breeze. Getting your Internet up and running takes just a couple of minutes.
Smart WAN allows RT2600ac to fail-over or load-balance between dual ISP connections to ensure Internet availability, whereas QuickConnect makes enabling remote access incredibly simple.
App- and device-based Quality of Service (QoS) lets you set higher bandwidth for gaming or VoIP applications while throttling BitTorrent downloads. Real-time and historical traffic data are organized into easy-to-read charts and reports, so you can identify any bottlenecks or anomalies.
Wi-Fi made smarter
Smart ConnectNot sure if 2.4GHz or 5GHz is better? RT2600ac automatically steers a device to the band that gives it the strongest signal and speed. No more manual switching.
Scalable mesh Wi-FiAdd additional MR2200ac to expand coverage even further, while still enjoying a single Wi-Fi name, enhanced roaming, and auto-optimization.
