My second 86U just died today (boots and then shuts down). It was an RMA replacement for one I purchased in 2018. According to the ASUS website it is 30 days out of warranty.

I'm wondering if I should bother with getting a new one or if this model is just cursed? Is there any way to find out when it was manufactured based on the SN? This is the fist part of the SN# J5IXHNIR****

I'm getting kind of fed up with ASUS routers. I feel like a router shouldn't have these sorts of quality control issues. Do you guys recommend staying with ASUS or switching to another brand?
