    Thanks. Aimesh on this router would be cool but not sure how much Asus is willing to work and push QTN for it afterall it was their first Wave 2 flagship router as claimed.

    Is the QSR1000 EOL/EOS if anyone know?

    Asus didn't even add Aimesh to AC3200... why would they bother with AC87?

    A Asus rep here already said the 87 will get security updates but Aimesh will not be supported. If you want Aimesh your going to have to get a different model router.

    I think he really wrote that it’s not planned at the moment

    I am afraid, it is not to be expected any time soon.

    Well, I bought it without Aimesh, and I can live now without Aimesh.
    But having this nice router updated in security and improved in other areas is what I am prying for. So please, ASUS, continue supporting this router ...
    And release the GPL code for the last FW. I would like to continue using Merlin versions ;).

    I doubt the 87 will ever get Aimesh. The 87's 5Ghz radio is Quantenna while Aimesh is designed around broadcom chip sets that alone is the deal breaker.

    I agree and therefore hope ASUS will do so.

    I cannot say the same. As other older and powerless models are getting this new functionality I’d like it also ported to 87s

    The RT-AC87U architecture makes it unlikely to get AiMesh. The 5 GHz radio is entirely managed by a separate firmware from Quantenna.

    Your knowledge is the best anyone can consider here. Thanks by the way for all your efforts with your firmwares, but I’m sure any technical problem has a solution.

    Not every solution is practical or economical to implement. If it ends up costing hundreds of thousand of dollars to have engineers work full time on this one specific model to rewrite everything required to make it work, it's not economically viable for Asus, especially for a model that is probably not generating any sizable sales in 2018, as better models are now available at a lower price.

    I know it is frustrating that powerless and older routers can use this functionality, but as RMerlin says, our router has the specificity of having this damned Quantenna stuff (by the way, for me it works well, I am not complaining about the performance) and this makes more complicated for Asus to develop this part of the software.
    But again, it is a very good router (regardless some complains I have read around here), and I would like to have it updated altough it has no Aimesh.

    In fact, I will attach (if possible) to RMerlin FW that has no Aimesh. Many people here prefer it although in their model the Aimesh is operative in the stock FW.

    I do not know in Canada, but in Spain RT AC87U is cheaper than the new (and better, I know) routers as RT AC86U, RT AC88U or RT AC5300, so it has still a good relationship price/performance. It is more expensive than RT AC68U, but it has better performances. In any way, it is still on sale ...
