So let us have a closer look at the product, packaging first of course.  The Asus GT-AXE16000 ships standard with a CAT6A connection and a massive power brick similar to the one included with the GT-AXE11000.



The ASUS GT-AXE16000 comes in a colorful red/black package. Next to the router, you'll find an Ethernet cable, power adapter, a manual, instruction CD, and already fitted for you, a whopping eight antennas.



Everything is packaged rather nicely and extensively, hardly any chance of damage during transport and unboxing it is quite an experience all by itself. Interestingly enough, the router cannot be wall-mounted, so there are no brackets or plugs to attach the router to the wall.  The Asus GT-AXE16000 is a very large router. The reflective top is where the ROG status light is barely visible.





The router holds four gigabit Ethernet LAN ports, a 2.5Gbps WAN/LAN port, and two 10 gigabit LAN port are located on the rear. A WAN port connects to your internet source, which might be a wired home network or a modem. Two USB connections on the side allow you to connect network storage drives or even a phone as a backup modem. On the front holds a Boost button. This button may be programmed to toggle the LEDs on or off, the Aura RGB on or off, DFS on or off, and game mode on or off. I kept mine configured to disable RGB lighting in order to easily decrease the lighting and power consumption in a dark room.
