I was originally using the basic modem/router i got with att uverse fiber. This was fine enough for most things. I needed more parental controls of my household electronics and was looking for a solution.
glad i went with this one since it wasnt overkill and could still take full advantage of my 1000mbps from att and it had very nice features built into the app. I can now control wifi hours of my kids devices so that they arent able to play online all evening.
configuring the att router/modem to be passthrough was a little complicated but i was able to figure it out. It paired easily with my asus rp ac55 extender. i have about 2200sqft and use to have trouble reaching the 2 farthest rooms but not anymore.
i did have to do some manual port forwarding on this router where my old one didnt need it. my speeds are better than what they were on the att router. seeing as how its still needed for passthrough i cant completely rule out that device being part of the speed changes.
Att speed test was about 500mbps, test on this one about an hour later was 700+ mbps.
I bought this because I have an Asus RT-AC86U with which I was quite happy, but it was getting a bit unreliable, as older routers do; it was now too unreliable for my stuck-at-home family who hold strong feelings about the reliability of their network connection.
My ISP feed is 100Mbps/10Mbps so I looked at dual band mesh routers, as tri-band would be overkill, and I had decided it was time to move from a single router to a mesh network. I decided the Asus Aimesh would give me the same performance as the Netgear dual band mesh I would be likely to buy, with less cost now as I’m already invested in the Asus system.
The Asus solution is feature rich also, probably intimidatingly so if you don’t have experience with routers. You can just ignore the settings you don’t understand. Anyway, the rich set of features was a plus for me when compared to the less configurable Netgear mesh network I considered.
The RT-AX55 was the cheapest WiFi6 ASUS router I could find with good wireless features, and 1800 Mbps is plenty for my ISP feed. I found the RT-AX55 on sale at Best Buy. For the sale price I paid for a brand name router, with a very up to date feature set, I don’t expect better value than this.
I installed the RT-AX55 as the new router and moved the RT-AC86U to become a wireless Aimesh node. RT-AX55 setup and Aimesh setup were easy. The RT-AX55 has rather limited RAM. I usually see 3% CPU usage and 66% RAM usage with 30 or so wireless clients, and a few wired clients, so capacity is good in spite of the amount of RAM provided.
This is in an Aimesh network so I don’t know if these metrics would hold for a standalone router application. The combination of these two routers in the Aimesh has been reliable in the couple of weeks I’ve used it.
I’ll stay in the Asus Aimesh ecosystem and will consider a second RT-AX55 unit when the RT-AC86U needs to be retired. (I considered Easymesh rather than Aimest but I suspect Easymesh is an open standard with little participation beyond one company, so I consider it practically a proprietary mesh standard at this point) Supposedly you can set up to four guest networks on Aimesh (or this router) but I didn’t have success beyond one guest network, and wasn’t inclined to invest more time in experimentation.
Compared to the range of the mighty RT-AC86U, the RT-AX55 broadcast range is much less impressive, so that’s why the RT-AX55 gets four stars instead of five. Other than range, I’m quite pleased with it.
The RT-AX55 by itself probably would be fine for many 2000-2500 sq. foot two-story houses if positioned closer to the centre of the house. Two RX-AX55 units (on sale) in an Aimesh is reasonably priced as a feature rich WiFi6 mesh alternative, if you have modest ISP bandwidth as I do.
Networking the two units together with Ethernet would be even better, and probably serve well for a 250-500 Mbps ISP feed when so connected.
The router was fine for the first week. I updated the firmware to the latest (3. 0. 0. 4. 386_45934) and I’ve had nothing but issues. TP-Link Kasa plugs and certain 2. 4Ghz devices were dropping off my network.
I turned off Smart Connect and separated the 2. 4 and 5Ghz SSIDs. The WiFi seemed more stable. I also factory reset for good measure. Although the devices were more stable, the router would crash and reboot almost daily, killing my internet connection.
Some of my Google Nest cameras now have issues uploading footage and showing live view. I’m going to downgrade the firmware, which is a very tedious process, and do some more testing. I recommend going for the RT-AX56 or higher model so you can install the custom Merlin firmware.
The stock firmware is pretty garbage and full of bugs.
Faster WiFi Speed for Smooth Streaming Powered by 5G Wi-Fi and 256QAM technology, the 802. 11ac chipset gives the RT-AC65 faster wireless speeds than N technology. At 2. 4 GHz, it reaches 450 Mbps, while on the 5GHz band it blazes to 1300 Mbps.
The upgraded bandwidth has the higher capacity you need to increase WiFi enjoyment at home. With notebooks, desktops, pads, and smartphones now all Wi-Fi-reliant, it’s time to upgrade to the next generation to expand you connectivity now and in the future.
AC1750 Dual-band connectivity for lag-free entertainment Delivering 2. 4 GHz and 5 GHz concurrent bands at up to 450 Mbps and 1300 Mbps, respectively, the RT-AC65 has a total speed of up to AC1750 Mbps, and maintains complete stability.
You can perform basic tasks like web browsing and file downloading on the 2. 4 GHz band, while simultaneously allowing multiple devices to stream in HD or support online gaming and other demanding applications smoothly on the clearer 5 GHz band.

The TP Link router arrived packaged well with all items. Included were the router, an ethernet cable, power cord, instructions, and a card identifying the SSID names and factory assigned password. The router itself is sleek, shiny black with four antennas.
The instructions were straight forward and easy to follow. I have set up routers before but I believe a person with only limited understanding of routers would be able to follow the instructions. The setup time took about 15 minutes.
About the only minor issue I had in the setup was not waiting long enough for my desktop to recognize the TP Link router. It can also be setup with a phone app. I setup the router as the primary network work router.
It can also be setup as an access point which is expanding your existing network by setting up this router to the existing wifi router. I did not do this but I did have an existing Netgear extender which I did setup to communicate with the TP Link router which worked fine using the TP Link instructions I found online.
The existing router I had is a Netgear R6300 which I have had for approximately 3 years. I did purchase another Netgear router a few months back but returned it because it did not improve the broadcast area or increase the speed.
I did speed tests for the current Netgear router for a baseline to compare to the TP Link at different locations throughout the house. Both the existing Netgear router and the TP Link router are dual bands having 2.
4 GHZ and 5G. The 2. 4 band for routers has bigger broadcast areas but are not as fast as the 5G. The 5G band is just the opposite, having a lesser broadcast reach but faster speeds. Our internet plan is 100mbps so the TP link is capable and will probably have a higher throughput speed but my test is limited by our internet plan speed.
Interestingly, the 5G band speed for downloads was about the same for both routers at about 105mbps. But the speed of the 2. 4 band was substantially improved with the TP Link router. The existing Netgear router download speed for the 2.
4 band was around 40 to 45 mbps. The TP Link router on the same band tested around 60 mbps at any location except for my worse location in the house which was 11. 1 mbps for the Netgear router and 28.
8 mbps for the TP link router. We live in an older two-story house that are notoriously difficult for wifi router broadcast reach. I’m sure a more recently constructed house would have better range and speed.
The upload speed for both routers was about 10. 5. I tested the wifi with two Roku TV’s with about the same result. On the 2. 4 band the signal was excellent. On the 5G band the signal was excellent in one location and fair in the other location for both routers.
I played a movie on Netflix using each of the routers and the results were excellent in both cases. I tested download speed of an Xbox game on the TP Link router and the download speed varied (as always) but was between 75 and 116 mbps running on the 5G band which is about the same as the Netgear router.
I played a game on the Xbox using the TP Link router and it worked fine. FYI, you will have to login to the new router with the new password on each device which is not included in the setup time above.
Overall, the TP Link router improved the speed on the 2. 4Ghz band significantly and based on the results of the worst reception area in the house, improved the broadcast range. I have used Netgear routers for about 20 years and this is my first experience with a different brand but I was pleased with the results.
Purchased this router, been using less than a week, seem to be working. Purchased based on reviews. The customer service was very helpful, took a bit of time waiting to talk to someone to help with connecting issue.
The instruction for the Tether could be better (this is where the customer service was very helpful), there’s nothing needed to do except connect the proper cable to the modem and locate the wireless router on the internet connection.
It’s best to get on the website to change the router name, etc. suggest not to make changes on the TP-Link app. The signal a bit weak for the garage, I had to get a repeater, will see if this solve the issue with my garage door device.
Had used other TP devices and performance is good. Office Depot online purchase was easy and pick up was a cake.

~ This router is very easy to setup and deploy, it offers a quick basic setup menu, as well as an advanced configuration menu that will satisfy both novices and people more familiar with networking features alike.
If you just need to setup and go, the average user can get the router configured and running in about 5 minutes. Advanced users will appreciate the in depth control and configurations from security to setting up a VPN, to enabling virtual servers to act as a portal for public service forwarding.
The AC link speed is excellent and on par with what you would expect from this band. Using an AC band WiFi USB adapter with my gaming PC, I was able to maintain a steady link speed of 433Mbps, which is reliable enough to play games such as CS:GO that demand fast, steady throughput.
The QoS this router delivers is excellent, I was able to connect my gaming PC, laptop, iPhone, Roku (streaming 1080p) and tablet simultaneously, all with no noticeable lag or network congestion. The Wifi range was greater than I expected, I was able to connect with my iPhone on the 2.
4GHz N band about 50 feet away, outside, through 4 walls. I really like the ability to turn any USB external drive into Network Attached Storage using the USB 3. 0 and 2. 0 expansion slots. With a drive connected and configured to use in the router’s network menu, you can access the drive or set up access restriction to specific folders.
This arrangement works beautifully with any device connected locally on the Network, and is a great way to view or listen to your media across your devices. You can also use the USB slots to connect a printer that might not otherwise be configured as a networked or wireless printer, to work across your local network.
Another nice feature in the advanced menu allows control to disable or enable either 2. 4GHz or 5GHz radio bands separately, and individual band transmit power settings for both 2. 4GHz and 5GHz bands (low, med, and high).
This level of control is not very common and can prove to be useful in certain setup configurations. Overall this is an excellent AC Router, I have had no glitches or hiccups throughout my testing and use.
I would absolutely recommend this router to anyone looking for a router to meet their connectivity needs. The speed, range, features, security and NAS expandability all exceeded my expectations, and I have been very happy with the performance of this router.
I ordered this router specifically for the print server function. However, once I plugged my printer into the USB 2. 0 port, it was displayed on the basic network chart, but it does not show up in the printer control software.
The printer is on the printer compatibility list. It just won’t respond to the printer commands. As a router, however, it performs much better than my old Belkin G unit, which had started to drop connections regularly.
Besides reaching my entire house, it gives very strong signal when measuring diagonally from one end of the first floor to the bedroom on the second floor at the far end of the house, probably 50 ft.
or so. In its literature, TP_Link hypes its “beamforming” ability, and I would say that this function does seem to work. I also had the idea of using the USB 3. 0 port for a HDD but after seeing some of the forum traffic, I’m not sure I want to try that yet.
I will give the unit 5 stars once all the USB functions work. Update 11/17/2016 – My Bad! The print server function works fine. The problem was a partially deleted firewall program that didn’t show up in the program list, or anywhere else, but continued to function.
I discovered this by accident when running my desktop (wired) connection and seeing the printer displayed. I then checked the Windows Security Center, which had a note that I had two firewalls running simultaneously.
It took a little tinkering to restore some of the deleted firewall files, but after that, the wireless printer showed up in the configuration program. As a result, I changed my rating to 5 stars.
Unpacking this you instantly see and feel that it’s quality made. Using inSIDDer, a wireless analyzing program and compared to my high-end ISP (Router) broadcast output this Archer C8 had a continuously better signal, It did add more range.
Following a directions the initial set up is very easy, also setting this up as an access router is the easiest I’ve yet experienced. It will find your current routers information and broadcast the exact same name and password which gives you an additional router for more radio signal and more land connection ports.
The easy one touch WPA button gives a quick secure wireless connection. For the advanced user the firmware/software that TP-Link has put together for this archer C8 seems to have it all. So clearly stated and all the available information manuals makes a lot of its features usable for the average user.
Don’t think that this router is too sophisticated for you, there’s a lot to offer here if you need a main or access router. Keep in mind that the 2. 4 GHz goes through walls and distance a little better than the 5 GHz.
The 5 GHz signal can separate you from others and give a little more stable connection and more speed. Depending on where you use it keep in mind line of sight to the router, sometimes even small adjustments can improve the connection.
I took my time to really go through a lot of features, allow the manuals and I felt really impressed at the performance and extra LAN ports are plus. Being a tabletop type router with three antennas it offers little bit more adjustability and the access of an un-mounted router.
I’ve never personally mounted a router to the wall, some people do. This is a hands-on router with the easy to use on off button for wireless connection… Now there is a way to shut down the wireless in your house and control it.
This router is also ready for network printer. TP link has data sheet information for all the specs for advanced users or a curious buyer will want. I did speed and distance checking and found this to be the easiest access router I’ve ever set up and a very easy main router to set up with the great coverage and output wireless signal.
What I see is that TP-Link put a lot of thought and developing this router, developed an easy to use program and pages for all the adjustments it offers. Made it so that setting up an access router that it can find and search for the local broadcast and let you choose and set up instantly the one you want.
A joint in access router can offer a lot of additional broadcast coverage. I would not only suggest this to a friend, I’m going to continue to use this as an access router and enjoy the features is giving me.
In electronics, often we buy them and they don’t fulfill our expectations… This one should with no problem.
The growing number of networked personal and IoT devices has led to a general increase in network density that is pushing the current WLAN standard to its limits. The latest 802. 11ax standard offers future-proof technologies, higher network efficiency, faster wireless speeds, greater coverage and improved battery life for connected devices, and provides users with a much better network experience.
With a revolutionary combination of OFDMA and MU-MIMO technology, 802. 11ax technology offers up to four times the network capacity and efficiency in environments with heavy network traffic. The previous generation, the 802.
11ac WLAN can only process one device at a time on each network channel, which means inefficient use of available bandwidth. OFDMA support in the 802. 11ax WLAN standard divides each channel into small subchannels, allowing signals from multiple devices to be bundled and transmitted simultaneously.
This reduces latency and provides a smoother, more responsive WLAN experience. The RT-AX58U has a lifetime, free license of AiProtection Pro powered by Trend Micro with automatic, regularly updated security signatures to protect your devices and personal information from Internet threats.
This powerful security solution offers advanced parental controls, including the ability to block specific websites and app types. The next generation of WLAN security brings new ways to improve the protection of wireless home or corporate networks.
Based on WPA2 encryption, widely used for more than a decade, WPA3 introduces new features that simplify wireless security, enable more robust authentication, and provide greater cryptographic strength for highly sensitive data markets.
I bought the ASUS AX3000 to replace the single-band, WiFi 4 router that is built into my AT&T modem. There are simply too many 2. 4GHz networks bleeding over into our house from the neighbors, and the AT&T router is too weak to get the full circuit bandwidth anywhere beyond about 10 feet from it.
The AX3000 is incredibly easy to set up. Before starting, I Googled how to shut off the built-in wifi radio and put the AT&T modem/router into pass-through mode. The ASUS router app is really nice, but I preferred using the on-board interface to set things up by wiring in our desktop PC.
I set up both 2. 4GHz and 5GHz networks using different SSID’s so that I could tell them apart. (I am not a fan of the “Smart Connect” feature that uses a single SSID and can move devices between 2. 4GHz and 5GHz to try to optimize range and speed.
) Two devices in the house only support 2. 4GHz, but the rest are all on the 5GHz network, including iPhones running WiFi 6 and a variety of devices including Apple TVs and Roku sticks using WiFi 5. Using a speedtest app on my iPhone 12, I then methodically checked every room in the house before connecting all the other devices.
We have a 3000 sq foot, two-story home with another 1000 sq ft in the unfinished basement. The AX3000 sits in the loft near the center of the second floor (great central location). The results? I got the full bandwidth of our internet circuit in every room of the house and in the basement, despite the signal strength sometimes being as low as 35%! This router has great features, a good user interface and a nice companion app.
But it’s the combination of WiFi 6 and other advanced tech that makes its performance shine. I have even noticed my Chromebook getting better battery life now that it can operate on 802. 11ac (WiFi 5) along with a stronger signal.
The AX3000 is not the cheapest home router, but if you need range, throughput, and the ability to support a fleet of modern devices, it is a great investment.
So, decided to cut the cable BUT use some of the money to subscribe to a VPN. The VPN company stated the ISP router would not be adaptable unless I did a bunch of tech stuff like flash it. I can build PCs, I can do very basic things and when shown or told I can pretty much make anything work.
Chose Asus because I like their product, just built a PC with an Asus mobo (Z490 ROG Strix E) and an Asus monitor (PA278) This router is supposed to work well with the VPN company I chose. First upon the simple (and it is simple) set-up, I received no signal from the modem to the router.
Called Asus and they helped me get a signal. I was willing to put that down as perhaps I made a mistake. Tried to install the VPN and when VPN was activated a loss of internet on the PC but not the 2 Rokus.
Contacted the VPN company who worked on it from their end and couldn’t find an issue. Contacted Asus again and again, they helped but when the VPN was on the PC was offline EVEN hardwired into the router.
Had a professional come in to set up the network. He did but VPN drops download from 200+MBPS – >50. He told me to contact the VPN company again. they had me run some configs and nothing. I would call again, but and I know it is something that companies do to keep prices down, but when I can’t understand a single word the phone help is saying (because I can’t be online if working on the internet with possible outages, due to the working on it.
) So, I won’t call them, asking them to repeat and talk slower makes me feel embarrassed. I rarely complain about the telephone outsources because it is what it is, but Asus’ by far the worst. So, while it FINALLY, gets me signals to everything I need the fact that a hardwired PC’s download speed drops 75% is frustrating and I would return it but with the market the way it is with stock on shelves down (bought the last one) and the need for one that handles wifi6 AND VPN there may not be anything else available.
It breaks my heart to have to write this review because as I stated I truly like Asus products.
My previous router was a Netgear RangeMax which gave good service for 12 years until the 2. 4 GHZ radio gave up the ghost. After reading nightmare reviews for routers from many top manufacturers, I purchased this Asus model based on its great reviews.
My first impressions are that this is an outstanding router. To begin, setup literally could not have been easier. Connected it to my cable modem, powered it on, and completed the setup in five minutes via the mobile app.
It was not necessary to update network adapter drivers on any of my PCs. Range is great – I get excellent connectivity from anywhere in my 1550 sq ft home. This includes two smart TVs, two wireless printers, two PCs, smartphones, wireless security with multiple cameras, and wifi connected lighting in multiple rooms.
The app is the crown jewel. The interface is intuitive and fun to use. Using it, I can see real-time traffic, know every device connected to the network – and identify and label them. The best way to do this when their identity is not clear is grab the MAC address from the device label or from the app associated with the device (like wifi lighting) and match it to the MAC address given for the mystery device by the Asus app.
The app reports connection quality for every online device so no need to use a wifi mapper. I am very satisfied with this purchase and would highly recommend this router for anyone with a network environment similar to my own.

I bought this after our previous modem-router combo stopped supporting parental controls, leaving us with clunky options to control access. Installing this was a cinch. Initially I installed it as an access point, but I was unable to access the parental controls.
I switched it to router mode, and two minutes later, we were up and running. So far my impression is good coverage for our fairly large-ish house.
“At up to 1167Mbps” This is anything but the truth. Here’s the reality. The hardware may be capable of it, However the way it manages traffic? It’s actually lucky to get any connection (wired or wireless) to over 100Mbps.
So the Pros: Connection strength over wireless is actually pretty good Wireless range was also decent. The admin panel was nicely organized Simple and easy. The Cons: The speeds were insufferable. So the thing here, Is if you have a connection that can deliver over 100Mbps, buy something else.
If you need something to get you through the weekend until a real router can be delivered? This isn’t a terrible option. If your connection is 100Mbps or under? I highly recommend this unit. The final observation it does sort of use more than 100Mbps, The problem is connection priority.
I could have 4 devices connected and be getting 100Mbps on all of them simultaneously, However even if only one device was connected. It still only delivers 100Mbps. So it doesn’t ever go “Hey there’s no other traffic, use more bandwidth on the connections that are open” That is something worth noting.
When ultra fast Wi-Fi is a must, the RT-AC3100 Dual-Band Wireless-AC3100 Gigabit Router from ASUS doesn’t disappoint. Supporting the enhanced 802. 11ac networking standard and operating on both the 2.
4 GHz and 5 GHz frequencies, this router supports a maximum wireless data throughput of up to 3167 Mbps. This enhanced Wi-Fi connectivity allows for low latency gaming, streaming of 4K multimedia content, downloading of large files, and much more.
In addition to the 802. 11ac networking standard, this router also supports 802. 11a/b/g/n network standards making it easy to connect nearly any Wi-Fi enabled device to your network. On the outside of the RT-AC3100 you will find four adjustable antennas featuring AiRadar beamforming technology supporting a transmission distance of up to 5,400 square feet (500 m).
With beamforming technology the wireless signal is beamed directly to the connected device for a more focused, more reliable connection. This ASUS router not only beams the signals to your devices, it has the ability to support more devices without slowing down thanks to MU-MIMO technology.
If a wired connection is what you desire, you can connect to any of the four Gigabit Ethernet ports. Dedicated link aggregation support provides bandwidth of up to 2 Gbps when a super fast Internet connection is required.
Inside the RT-3100 you will find a 1. 4 GHz dual-core processor along with 128MB flash memory and 512MB of RAM to ensure the router operates smoothly when being pushed to the max.
I setup my router just 2 days ago, but so far everything is great. It seems to be well designed and built, and the QIS (Quick Internet Setup) software worked flawlessly. I especially like that the button for resetting to factory defaults is recessed, so it’s nearly impossible to press it accidently.
The one shortcoming so far was the included documentation. There were two different printed Quick Start Guides and a full PDF manual on CD. These documents contradicted each other concerning the order of the setup steps.
I was able to figure out a logical sequence and made it through the setup just fine on the first attempt. The problem was only with the written documentation: once I was into the QIS program everything was very straight forward.
Once the router is fully booted and a computer is connected via an ethernet cable, the QIS software loads automatically. There were numerous parameters mentioned in the documentation that I didn’t need to enter.
Apparently the QIS software was able to determine those things on its own.
This router replaces a Tenda 2300 that was in service for about 4 years and finally failed. I selected the Asus router due to it having a good price point, good reviews online and reported signal range.
The router has a very large physical footprint and requires a large surface to set it on. The setup was rather difficult and the Asus support was marginal (at best) and I was hung up on which is totally unacceptable.
The range was not as good as my old Tenda. And even through the Asus has four antennas as compared to my old router having three, the range was not as good. I had to widen the channel bandwidth to the maximum to get whole house coverage.
So the bottom line is that I am a little disappointed with the purchase and do not recommend it to others.
I purchased this router on January 19, 2022 from Amazon. I received an email from ASUS telling me I could receive an additional 90 days of warranty for my honest review. I replaced my older Linksys router with the ASUS.
This what I found. My wifi coverage weakened with my old router as soon as I would get 40 feet away. My entire home has great wifi coverage with the new ASUS router. I am getting triple the speed when measured with Speedtest with my new ASUS router.
I would not need to be given extra warranty to state these facts but this ASUS router is far superior to what I had.

My ISP has me provisioned for 75/75 mbps and I’m getting 83/91 mbps over wireless consistently from all over the house. Previously, this was only attainable in close proximity to my router or over a wired connection.
The beamforming feature of this router really helps get a better connection in more places around the house. Speeds are pretty consistent wherever I go. I also like the separate wireless bands. The 5 GHz bands are going to be the faster ones, but the 2.
4 GHz is no slouch. I’m able to consistently hit 70/70 Mbps on 2. 4 GHz. The two 5 GHz bands help to separate traffic and keep things even across multiple bandwidth hungry devices. Guest network functions are available so that you don’t need to share your password and LAN access if you don’t want to.
A USB 3. 0 and a USB 2. 0 port are both included for print server and multimedia / file sharing functions. I was able to configure this to work as an access point fairly easily by turning off DHCP and setting the LAN IP to a static one within my primary router’s subnet.
However, it doesn’t work consistently as this router doesn’t seem to pass DHCP requests along. This is an ongoing issue with several firmware builds. This is a Wave 1 router, just in case anybody is wondering and isn’t MU-MIMO capable.

The Way You Want. But Wi-Fi coverage can be affected by many factors — room layout construction materials and even furnishings. With its incredible performance RT-AX88U maximizes throughput for the best networking performance accelerates USB data transfers and more.
Pros: This is a powerhouse of a router. After alot of research including performance, reviews and budget I decided to go for this piece of kit. I was changing broadband to virgin. I already read that virgin routers are poor.
When I had virgin installed I was getting via WiFi around 180mb download speed on a 350 package. Stuck virgins box into modem mode and wired this one up I now get the full dowoad speed over WiFi! Even better at times get 365mb download.
Obviously wired get the full speed. But for my normal size house I get full coverage. Maybe one corner of house I get one less bar but signal still great and I don’t have plasterboard walls. Even on vpn I get get full speeds.
Great app and many features that can customise. I split bands up and use smart plugs, lights, printers on the 2ghz. Rest on 5ghz. I get up 60mb download speed on 2ghz which is faster than most other broadband providers in general.
Fully recommend. Cons: Maybe flexible antenna, but that’s me being picky.
First off, I’m not a techie. have enough back ground to build my own computers and navigate through most technical devices but far from an expert. I bought two of these. The first was as a router and the second as an access point.
Both were easy to setup without any issues. I ended up buying two because the router was placed in an office on the far side of the house in a wooden entertainment center. That effected the strength of the signal, so I opted to buy a second one.
I hardwired it running Cat 6 in the attic and dropped it down in the living room to create the access point (you can do it wirelessly as well but want to get the full signal strength to the living room).
I thought about buying a regular access point, but when you start comparing the data speed and number of bands, you basically end up spending $300 anyway and getting less data speed compared to using this as an access point.
Plus, by treating this as an access point, it gave me 8 LAN ports to hardwire all my devices in the living room, so I thought it was a better deal. Also, fyi, I recycled an old 10 year router at best buy for a 15% off coupon.
When this went on sell for $319, I used the 15% off and picked it up for $271. not a bad deal saving $78! I won’t get into all the data speed measurements as it varies on usage, but what I will say is by having two of these on opposite sides of the house, I get my full 5gz/2gz speed through most of the house.
I also love the fact you get the option of splitting the ssid between 5gz and 2gz or combining it into one as well as the access point uses the same ssid to be able to hand off when walking across the house.
I have only started to use the product but enjoy the ease of seeing which client devices are connected to your network, the data usage of each device, the ease of turning on 160mhz on the 5gz band, etc.
I still need to play with the guest network, parent controls, and other security features. The only drawback for me is it didn’t have WPA3 or a WAN that supported larger than 1G speed. But, I figured the WPA3 is just a security feature and the likely hood that I would ever get (and afford) over 1G of internet speed is highly unlikely in the near feature.
I think I saw Comcast offering 2G for almost $300 a month, ouch! Anyway, this router find my needs and both units have been working flawlessly since purchase.
I bought AX88U because I can’t stand for the random reboot from Netgear’s RAX120v2, which is otherwise a fantastic router. I used to own AC86U, so I was hoping AX88U to be a familiar, stable and highly customizable router.
It didn’t disappoint. Unlike RAX120v2, this is a full Wi-Fi 6 certified router. I believe RAX120v2 lacks “Target Wake Time,” so it isn’t Wi-Fi 6 certified. Though I do want to point out that RAX120v2 offers much better throughput and noticeably lower latency on both wired and wireless connections.
AX88U also lacks a 5G/2. 5G LAN/WAN connector. These were in fact the reasons I bought RAX120v2, but it’s simply too unstable to use. Imaging waiting minutes just for the router to reboot.
Supporting the latest Wi-Fi standard 802. 11AX (Wi-Fi 6) and 80MHz bandwidth for better capacity and efficiency. RT-AX55 supports 80MHz bandwidth and 1024-QAM for dramatically faster wireless connections.

Great router. I had an Apple AirPort Extreme that seemed to be working fine so I thought there was no need to upgrade. 2020 hit and my kids ended up doing school from home while I worked from home. While I had never experienced any issues, the kids were having connection issues during Zoom meetings with their classes.
I have 1 gigabit internet speed through Comcast/Xfinity and had never seen much more than 550mbps over Wi-fi but figured it was a limitation of the devices I was using. Between seeing the low (for the plan) speeds and the kids having Zoom issues, I decided to get a Wi-fi 6 compatible router.
I did a bunch of research and this was one of the highest rated ones and I had my friend, a Sr. Network Engineer, look over the specs and he was impressed by it and now wants to get one. I bought it and set it up.
Setup was very easy and intuitive so the router was up and running in just minutes. The ASUS app is user friendly as well. While most devices on my network aren’t Wi-fi 6 compatible, my iPad and iPhone both are.
I was able to get up to 892mbps with this new router on my phone and up to 901mpbs on my iPad Pro, both of course over Wi-fi. My kids also both have not had a single issue with Zoom meeting connections after the upgrade.
This router was money well spent, especially with a smart home full of devices connected, me working from home, and my kids both on Chrome books doing school from home. If you are considering this router, I hope you find this review helpful.
I would absolutely buy this router if I had it to do again. It has been running flawlessly for a few months now and has been putting our gigabit service to good use. Oh, and range. The router is located in the middle of our home and we have a detached garage which gets a nice strong signal and a detached shed maybe 100 feet from the router through a few walls and across the yard that has a Wi-fi camera mounted to it which receives a good signal and allows for streaming from the camera so I find the range to be very good.
I bought 2 of these routers. The first one was purchased last year to address shortcomings in coverage for my 2 story home with large distances from the router. I originally paired it with a N66U ASUS router to extend my networks range.
However a lightning storm killed the old router and as a result I have now purchased a second one of these. They now act as a DUO with one as an ASUS Ai Mesh Node to the second. I have strong signal strength throughout the house wirelessly now and the router function as a mesh with both 1 GB Ethernet backbone and over 5GHz backhaul channel if the hard line uplink fails.
Connection quality is seamless throughout the 4000 sqft house with the range extending all the way down by the pool deck. All our devices migrate seamlessly between the mesh nodes as expected without a drop in speed or quality.
I have Mediacom, my speed very based on their service, not my equipment. But I have stead 500 to 800 MB down throughout the day over the Dual Band network of the 2GHz/5GHz management by the routers. Streaming anywhere in the house or working from home of wired or wireless is very efficient now.
Highly recommend these routers. The UI is very robust and easy to navigate whether you are a novice or an experienced network planner. My last ASUS Router lasted for more than a decade and only had to be swapped out due to aging radio tech and an unfortunate power surge.
I waited until a month of ownership had passed to fully acquaint myself with this router before writing this review, and gathering an opinion on it/it’s features/quirks. Normally I’d lay out my reviews in the “pros/cons manner, but this is a router, and realistically that’s difficult to do.
Navigating the router – at first – was difficult as I’ve used Netgear exclusively ever since the Linksys WRT54G was “outdated” due to their ease of use and acceptability of open source firmware. I was a bit deterred to know that this router didn’t have open source capabilities, or any developers for such, but decided ultimately based off reviews to give it a chance anyway, and I’m quite glad I did.
I’ve not tested the USB throughput, however, if it’s performance is anything similar to what I’ve experienced on my network thus far I’ve got no doubt that it’ll reach it’s specified transfer rates. I’ve had ZERO issues with this router, and find the ease of doing some things (such as blocking internet access for my security cameras) is INSANELY easy (literally the click of a button vs Netgear’s multiple page/menu/submenu navigation then restarting the router every single time within ANOTHER MENU.
) Assigning static LAN IP’s is equally as easy, and I quite enjoy the fact that I can DISABLE automatic throughput prioritization for the “gaming” port on the wired LAN. The ability to set up temporary networks is really cool too, not a GUEST network – a temporary one, as in it vanishes in a set amount of time.
That’s pretty legit if a friend’s kids want to come over and use the internet, but I want to make sure that they don’t have it automatically the next day should I forget to disable the guest account, etc.
Being able to see CPU CORE usage – not just overall – memory usage, logging of multiple different aspects all SEPARATELY DDOS protection built in as well as ICMP requests, etc. are all very nice things to have.
The RGB is. basic, but it’s not like this is Corsair, afterall, naturally it’s going to be a lot less “fun” than it could be, but it’s not bad. It COULD be better, but that would come at the cost of RAM/CPU usage – so consider that.
The ease of use of this router is bar-none the BEST I’ve ever had in a managed atmosphere for networking devices, and I went to school for this. so there’s that. The CPU usage spikes pretty heavily on my 400Mbps/40Mbps network when I max out traffic during packet sniffing/loss tests/speed tests/large downloads, so it definitely HAS the potential for buffer overflow but I’ve yet to run into any, and have 5 LAN tablets, 3 Smart TV’s, 2 4k Blu-Ray streamers, 5 Bluetooth Audio Systems, a Switch, 4 Desktop PC’s, a Server, a HTPC, a fire stick, a laptop, and two smart phones all running through this router as well as 10 cameras, and I’ve had NO issues whatsoever without even enabling QOS or other “management” features.
Again – bar-none this is the BEST router I’ve ever owned. Period. I haven’t tested whether the RGB affects RAM/CPU usage or temps enough to care, but I’ve got mine mounted on an aluminum ‘shelf’ with perforations for airflow, and have had absolutely no hiccups whatsoever.
Build quality is good, decently heavy, but you can tell that the way they designed it was with airflow in mind. At numerous angles you can see through this router, and that’s a good thing!.

You should have bought a router for YOUR TI purposes only!! this is a router that’s meant for maybe an apartment or a 2 possibly 3 bedroom home not for an office building! it’s no wonder it didn’t give results like you wanted and it failed.
this is a entry level Wi-Fi router you should have kept with the Netgear nighthawk or something similar. IT ALSO SOUNDS LIKE YOUR PLACEMENT OF THE ROUTER WAS ALSO A BIG REASON TOO. These are 101 facts and you claim to say your I.
T if I was in your position there would have been no way in hell would have bought this router I would have went with something higher in for my “clients”. this router performs exceptionally well with a range of probably 150 to 200 ft with obstructing walls I haven’t had any issues and I’ve had this router for almost a year now the AI protection software works perfectly and blocks what needs to be blocked.
The ASUS router app it’s perfect, easy setup, only took me about 15 minutes it also supports AI Wi-Fi mesh systems so any other Asus Wi-Fi mesh routers you can connect to this and it’s Wi-Fi 6!!! unfortunately as far as the price is concerned I bought it when it was $70 now it’s 159 on Amazon highly recommend this router and remember, if you have a long house an older home that’s brick or anything with thick sheetrock look somewhere else.
Instructions in Chinese. Anyways definitely easy to set up. Plug in connect to internet set your setting make sure you change network name and password to what you want unless you keep the one made up just remember it.
Good distance very strong signal all around happy.

The 5GHz band is often referred to as the unlicensed band because it does not require a license to operate in most countries. This band is perfect for applications that require high bandwidth and low latency such as video streaming and gaming.
The main advantage of the 5GHz band over the 2. 4GHz band is that it has more available channels, which results in less interference.
In conclusion, the 5GHz band is the best choice for applications that require high bandwidth and low latency.
