Not sure which devices should connect to the 2.4 GHz and 5GHz bands? With Synology’s Smart Connect, devices are connected to the most appropriate band automatically, letting users experience simplified management without worrying about range or speed issues.
Quick and easy setup
When first setting up Synology Routers RT2600ac, simply plug it into your existing ISP modem, enter "router.synology.com" in a web browser, and follow the interactive installation guide to finish. You can also install DS router to find and complete setup using your Android or iOS device.
Advanced management tools
Synology Router Manager (SRM) includes advanced traffic tools that surpass the common router. With the Network Center application, you can limit bandwidth consumption, block malicious content, and fine-tune how data travels through your home or office network.
Application Layer QoS
Powered by a deep packet inspection engine, Application Layer QoS (Quality of Service) lets you see how much bandwidth is consumed by individual applications and devices. If someone is hogging too much bandwidth on non-essential applications — like YouTube or Spotify — you can restrict the amount of bandwidth the device can use for the specific application, without affecting the bandwidth available for other applications.
For parents or business owners, you can easily set a schedule to control when children or employees are allowed to access the Internet. In addition, with a vast database of dangerous or inappropriate websites built into SRM, you can customize what kinds of content is permitted and effectively block thousands of sites with a few simple clicks.
Intelligent web filtering
Whereas traditional routers implement URL-based web filtering to block or allow specific content in the network, Synology Router Manager includes a more intelligent web filtering which checks if content is blocked or allowed during the DNS lookup stage of communication, making it harder to sneak through and see unauthorized content, while also reducing system resource consumption.
VPN support, RADIUS server, and other possibilities
Go beyond a simple router with a rich selection of add-on software packages available on Synology's Package Center. Transform your Synology Router RT2600ac into a personal VPN server, professional RADIUS authentication server, 24/7 download hub, multimedia library, or add other handy features for use at home or the office.
