The Asus ZenWiFi XT8 mesh system is our favorite overall Wi-Fi 6 mesh networking router. For a long time this router was selling for around $450 and rarely saw any respectable price drops, but since the new year it has been selling for around $400. And today you can get it for a brand new low price of $358.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab). The next best deal we saw was a drop to around $390 that included a gift card, but we always like direct discounts more. This price only applies to the white version of the router, as the black version is still going for closer to $400.

One of the reasons we like the Asus ZenWiFi mesh router so much is because of how much space it covers. These two routers will provide a steady, strong blanket of super-fast Wi-Fi 6 over 5,500 square feet of space. That's a lot of area to cover, and that means if you live in a space smaller than that you won't run into any Wi-Fi dead zones. You know those dead zones where you're sitting on your couch and you move two feet to the left and suddenly you don't have any internet. The router uses a tri-band system with unique antennas that ensure a strong signal even in those nooks where you didn't get it before.

Other tech includes OFDMA and MU-MIMO so you'll have a stable transmission even when there's a dozen different devices sharing data at the same time. It's also AiMesh compatible, so you can mix and match with other routers that use AiMesh to increase your coverage and overall strength.

Use the Asus Router app for easy setup and regular network management.
