ASUS has launched the new Asus RT-AC1200HP wireless router in India supporting the latest wireless LAN Wi-Fi ac in dual mode (2.4GHz & 5GHz frequencies) for fast and reliable local area network connectivity. Please note that very few devices (smartphones/laptops) supports the Wi-Fi ac wireless networking standard but sooner or later all devices will come with it in-built as this is the currently fastest Wi-Fi standard after the Wi-Fi n. Also this router does not have in-built Modem.
This router also supports 2 WAN connections with load balancing & fail-over modes. For example if you have two broadband connections then it can work simultaneously with both of the connections to provide more bandwidth and also make one connection as a fail-over if the other connection becomes down.
Although it has only one WAN port but it also has 4 Gigabit LAN ports and 1 USB v2.0 port, one of which can be used as a secondary WAN port. These secondary WAN port settings are available in the web-based control panel ASUSWRT dashboard UI.

Dual WAN – Load Balance can increase your internet bandwidth. If you have two internet connections( from DSL, cable or 3G/4G wireless adapter ), you can load balance them to provide more bandwidth to the devices on your home or office network. This can be very useful for downloading torrents and playing online games at the same time. Fail over can provide backup internet connectivity. If the primary internet connection goes offline, the second connection automatically takes over the control of the network. This can make sure your transmission is always on connection status and good for playing online game.
