Hello


I have a main router ASUS AX86U PRO , i am so satisfied with it , i would like to add a second router in mode AI MESH , the idea is to have 100 percent cover of wifi signal in my apartment , the main router is connected to the modem with cable and they are in the living room , the other router i want to put in my small room ( my office ) , even my house is not that big > only two rooms plus a living room with two balconies , plus the roof that it covers the whole house , otherwise it is like a second floor , so i was thinking about to extend and cover as well all the house with a good second router , i have already metionned in my previous thread that i tried TP LINK ARCHER C80 and TP LINK ARCHER AX 55 ,

> TP LINK ARCHER C80 i bought with TP LINK WIFI EXTENDER RE 550 , which they did work very well , but TP LINK ARCHER AX55 with TP LINK WIFI EXTENDER RE 550 : the led of 2,4ghz in the wifi TP LINK WIFI EXTENDER RE 550 sometimes turns off , probably problem of compatibility , anyway , since i have now ASUS AX86U PRO , i was thinking to buy another ASUS router that does support AI MESH

i have some models in my head like : ASUS RT-AX 58U
and ASUS RT-AX53U , note that i tried ASUS RT-AX 57 before and since it was my first ASUS ROUTER i had to return it and change it with ASUS AX86U PRO that is my main router now ,

so any experience or point of view to share about and for ASUS RT-AX 58U , ASUS RT-AX53U , ASUS RT-AX 57 .
any suggestions , ideas or even comments will be always appreciated .

looking forward to your replies ,

All the models you indicate are none that I would be considering using in AiMesh with the RT-AX86U Pro.

How big is your apartment in SqFt? What are your ISP speeds up/down? What throughput do you get when only the main router is used/powered up?

Ideally, the best match for an AiMesh setup is another identical router running the same firmware as the main router.

Hello ,

Thanks for the reply ,
My house is 75 square meters + I have a roof that has the same size like the house .
My internet speed is 200 Mbps wifi and
About 500 Mbps with cable

The Upload is almost the same as the download speed ,

I tested the internet on the terrace ( the roof ) and I found out that it is not covered, let's say that it is covered poorly, almost no signal .

The roof sounds like it is made out of thick concrete or some other WiFi, non-friendly, materials,

For 75 SqM, and the ISP speeds mentioned, the routers you indicate may be all you need for a wired backhaul AiMesh node. What I would do is buy one of them and an RT-AX68U, RT-AX86U (original, 's', or Pro), and not open the latter until you've tested the former. After you test and verify what the entry-level routers are capable of, you can decide if you need to return that one, and keep the latter.

Or, you may also consider buying a GT-AX6000 to use as your main router and your current router become the AiMesh node.

All of the above choices will depend on the local prices and availability, of course.
