The ASUS RT-AC58U is designed to compete and fill the gap in the ASUS router line-up, with its set between standard 2.5GHz dual-band routers and ASUS mid-range 2.5/5GHz routers. With performance close to the midrange and affordable price point of just ₹5000 in India or $70 in the USA, the RT-AC58U is an ideal choice for a small office or home with multiple simultaneous users, with its four antennas and MU-MIMO support it can handle multiple devices easily, thanks to its quad-core Qualcomm IPQ4018 processor (SoC) and Wave-2 802.11ac. The RT-AC58U also has all add-on features like AiCloud personal cloud service, 3G/4G data sharing, but ASUS did remove some features to keep the cost down, like built-in Download Master for USB drives. Though router has only one USB port, which means only one driver or printer can be connected at a time, but at the list, it’s a USB 3.0, so transfer speed is good. Overall ASUS RT-AC58U has all the important bits that make a good a router, and for the price, it’s an excellent package with performance and features, we are giving it BEST VALUE AWARD and SILVER AWARD.
