ASUS GT-AX11000 PRO UK or Asus ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000

Level 7

Which router is better (faster / more powerful)? Can't decide which one to choose


Level 7

ASUS GT-AX11000 PRO UK (90IG0720-MU2A00) is UK only ? Will there be difficulties with the router in another country?

Level 14

WiFi routers have a region/country lock in them for the WiFi channels and transmission power.  It's potentially illegal to use one locked to the wrong country, as it may broadcast on prohibited frequencies.  Generally, only buy them from normal retail channels in your country or region (e.g. they are normally the same config for all of the EU), and avoid grey imports.  The wrong country code can also block you from using all of the channels which are open for use in your country, or limit the radio power on some channels.

It used to be a configurable option, but the regulators have forced it to be locked on retail routers.

Edit: Both routers are quite similar, so it really depends on what your specific needs are.  The AXE has 6GHz (WiFi 6E), the AX Pro doesn't.  Check the Ethernet ports on each as well, I think there's a slightly different set of ports between them.  There's not going to be a lot of difference between them for Internet performance if you're on 1G or slower Internet.

Thank you very much for your answer) I compared several models of routers, ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000 is my choice)

I like the specs for the AX11000 Pro a little better, unless you have (a) 6E (6 GHz) device(s).

2.0 GHz CPU vs 1.8 GHz

10 GBs and 2.5 GBs Ethernet vs single 2.5 GBs Ethernet.

UNII4 support (check if allowed in your country).

I would not dare buy a product from another country/region as you may void your warranty…
