    [UK] Asus 4G-AC68U router, constantly dropping connection on EE mobile network?

    Hi all, I recently decided to give up fixed line ADSL as I will be travelling around the UK a lot. After doing some research into 4G Wireless routers, I settled with the ASUS 4G-AC68U partly because it looks cool and also due to its WIFI antenna ranges. Initial testing of the router was done...

    Is a dedicated wireless backhaul better for a wireless bridge?

    I understand why it's better for "mesh" systems, which have repeaters, but my use case is to connect an AC86U as a media bridge (stock Asus firmware) to a R7800 as the main router. This AC68U will go behind the TV where I'll run Ethernet to several devices from it. Right now I have it connected...

    Has anyone else seen a performance difference in Upper/Lower 5GHz bands?

    ... A difference in PERFORMANCE I should have said. Can't edit that now. While I was digging for some information about whether my RT-AC68U (B2) is the identical same as RT-AC68P (which I still don't know) I stumbled down a rabbit hole leading to FCC certification documents for FCC ID...
