    [R7800] 5GHz only ~150MBps on smartphone

    Can you also try plugging in the phone to charge and test it like that? Preferably with the battery full or near full so it's not drawing too much power from the charger and generating extra heat from that. I've had phones that slow down WiFi when running on battery.

    Mesh network with my R7800?

    Why not leave the router where it is, and get another router or AP and put it in bridge mode at the end where wired is needed? I've bought 3-stream AC routers that I use like this for as low as $20 (Walmart sale of Netgear R6250), but more usually you can get sales for around $50~60...

    ASUS RT-AC87 Firmware - Official Releases

    Hey guys, I have been monitoring this thread for a while. It seems the routers with this Quantenna chip are having some of the similar issues, and I have a Netgear R7500, which like this one, is producing massive battery drain on Android devices on 5GHz. Can anyone tell if this latest firmware...
