Packaging takes on a new modern look with the 86U. We have marketing information to the left side and an image of the router to the right.

On the front of the router, we have the black and red ROG styling carried over. A series of LEDs along the bottom denote everything from power to activity across each band and internet connectivity.

The right side of the router houses a Wi-Fi on/off button and WPS button.

On the backside, the top left is a small reset button. Below this, we have the power input and switch above followed by USB 2.0 and 3.0 and WAN in blue. The four Gigabit LAN ports are colored yellow with a LED switch in between.
