    What is the better purchase between the AX88U and AX86U?

    Just a small update! I have been running Merlin 386.1 for almost 3-4 weeks total runtime before I suffer a power outage due to storm so this router has been running pretty stable for me! Also this router seems to run cooler than all my previous router capping out around 68-72c. I notice that...

    What is the better purchase between the AX88U and AX86U?

    A small update, I'm slowly turning things back on. I turned on AIProtection at the 8 day mark and have still been running pretty stable. Router hasn't gone down or rebooted in 12 days now since AIProtection has been turned on. Still waiting for a stable release of Merlin for this router as I...

    What is the better purchase between the AX88U and AX86U?

    As of today, the router has 8 day uptime without any reboots or network issues. Everything seems to be very stable with this router and I have no regrets returning the AX88u for the AX86u. The smaller footprint as well has been wonderful. I'm running firmware Version 3.0.0.4.384.9318 if anyone...

    What is the better purchase between the AX88U and AX86U?

    Just received my replacement AX86U today. Everything seems to be working and my previous model was definitely defective. I didn't notice until today but all the lights on my previous AX86U turned on except the 5GHZ. Every light on the replacement is on now including 5GHZ. Will update to the...

    What is the better purchase between the AX88U and AX86U?

    Yeah, I usually keep it simple. I even try not setting any password at all. I basically just use the url from this post https://www.snbforums.com/threads/ax88-packet-loss.62891/#post-563326 to bypass the setup wizard then let the router run as default after a full reset. Wifi still doesn't show...

    What is the better purchase between the AX88U and AX86U?

    Just an update on my router situation. I returned my AX88U for an AX86U and so far the experience hasn't been well. Seems I got a lemon unfortunately and Amazon will be replacing it. I took it out of the box and ran setup wizard. Everything was setup but I couldn't find the Wifi at all. I did a...

    What is the better purchase between the AX88U and AX86U?

    Do you know what version your AX88U was? I have read about the stability issues but some people said the v1.1 fix it, I don't know how true that is though. I do want to get the AX86u but scared that it won't get merlin support

    What is the better purchase between the AX88U and AX86U?

    Thank you for the inputs! I have decided to go for the AX88U for now as I’ve been using a basic spare router that was given to me by my ISP without Merlin/diversion for a couple of days now and forgot how valuable it is for my daily usage. I guess, I have grown use to it blocking ads on my...

    [Asus RT-AX88U] Experiences & Discussion

    I'm currently in the market for a new router and was about to get the USG then stumbled on this router for a more ease of use all in one. Has all the kinks been sorted out and Is this router currently worth the pick up?
