    Main question: Given my below situation, is it best to use a second router connected to the main router via ethernet as the 2.4 GHz access point? Rationale: The RT-AC3100 is not the cheapest (or most expensive) router, so replacing it is not preferred. The 5 GHz and ethernet connections...

    This is a naive question but one that I haven't seen discussed; I doubt it is unique to Asus routers (I've observed the same phenomenon with other routers), and I'm surprised more people don't comment on it. My setup is this: I have an Asus AC-68U router running Asus Merlin. In addition to...
