Smart Wi-Fi that is easy to customize

Synology Router Manager (SRM) lets admins tweak and optimize their office Wi-Fi with powerful tools, and simplifies setup and management for home users.

Smart Connect gives you the best signal and speed

SRM's band steering technology intelligently points your device to the best Wi-Fi band: faster 5 GHz when you are close to the router, or longer range 2.4 GHz when you move away. If you have specific channels you prefer to use for each band, you can specify those, too.

Mesh Wi-Fi to end internet dead zones

For large homes or offices where a single router is not enough, the latest mesh networking technology allows you to add extra Wi-Fi points to get high-speed coverage everywhere.1

Forget manual network switching. Wherever you are and no matter which Wi-Fi point your device is connected to, there is always just one network name you need to remember.

Support for the IEEE 802.11k, v, and r standards delivers a smooth VoIP and video streaming experience when you move from one room to another — and you can see which devices are currently connected to which Wi-Fi point.2

Your Wi-Fi points automatically decide how to connect with each other. If one is unplugged, the rest will automatically find a new way to connect, always giving you the best possible path to the internet.

Once a mesh network is automatically created, you can still fine-tune how a Wi-Fi point wirelessly connects with another or decide whether some interconnections should go through Ethernet only – totally in your control.

Managed guest access

Enable guest Wi-Fi for visitors or customers. Create a welcome portal to be the first thing guests see after connecting to your Wi-Fi. Advanced options such as schedules, password rotation, and session time limits can be configured to ensure that access is not abused.

Wi-Fi security

With so many devices now communicating over Wi-Fi, SRM is constantly evolving to provide additional safeguards.

Next-generation security protocols

Support for the latest security standards, including WPA3-Personal, WPA3-Enterprise, and Opportunistic Wireless Encryption (OWE) equips home, business, and open Wi-Fi networks with better defenses against snooping and other attacks.3

MAC address filtering

Prevent suspicious devices from connecting to your Wi-Fi by putting them on a blocklist, or allow only approved devices to connect. Guest Wi-Fi can be set to follow the same rules or remain open to everyone.

Notes:

  1. Available on Synology RT2600ac and MR2200ac. Currently, RT2600ac can serve as the primary Wi-Fi point, while MR2200ac can be the primary Wi-Fi point or extend the signal of another RT2600ac/MR2200ac.
  2. For client devices that also support 802.11 k, v, or r, such as iOS devices.
  3. Available on Synology RT2600ac and MR2200ac. Client support for WPA3 is required for compatibility.
