Thinking of upgrading to AX88u from AC88u, is it possible to import the settings? too many configs to mess with.

Thanks and Stay Safe

You can do it.

You shouldn't though if stability, performance, and security are important to you.


The best thing about a new router is the fresh start it offers. Don't 'blindly' assume what you have working now will continue to work on the latest models (and that's a good thing most of the time, there are usually better ways to skin the same cat with a new router).

You can use the same SSID and passwords for the new router so you don't have to reconfigure any of you wireless devices.

Using new SSID's is suggested when moving from an AC to an AX router (or an N to an AC, etc.).

Sure, you can use what you have now, but that is not a real fresh start either.

Using new (never before used) SSID's is faster and more effective than resetting all your existing client devices too (which is the long way to do it).

You lost me there, I understand the safety bit, but why would a new SSID make it faster?
