    Hi, I have recently received a Netgear xr500 for free, but I already have a router that I believe is actually better , the Asus ac88u.
    So my thinking is to sell the new xr500.

    Hard to find good comparisons between the 2 but as far as I can see the ac88u is better and stronger in all areas even that it's 3 years older or am I missing something?

    The whole game part of the xr500 is probably not a big thing as a swedish ISP user and the ac88u also has good qos.

    Any help on what I might be missing when comparing then is helpful!
