    RT-AC87U will not support AiMesh. Even in 384.

    Currently, no plan to support it.

    BTW, I think this FW is for some user to clarify his/her's specific issue only. It's not published by ASUS. Maybe it's published by user.

    Either he miss understood your question or the 87 is being dumped in the near future.

    For security, it will be updated continuously For Aimesh, no plan to do it currently.

    er... ok, but is this firmware going to be released officially? And if so, will the source code be published so that we can expect a RMerlin version of it?

    Thanks!

    This firmware is an unofficial test build which shouldn't have been posted in public in the first place. There will be no GPL sources for it since it's not a release.

    I already have the GPL sources for 382_50010 for the RT-AC87U, which is newer than this anyway.

    After upgrading to this version as AP mode connected to Main router AC5300, I can't find the IP address assigned by RT-AC5300 through the View client screen. No so sure that is RT-AC5300 firmware issue. I found this problem since upgraded to Ai-Mesh firmware.....

    Can I add my name to the seemingly growing list of those frustrated by a lack of updating the RT-AC87U with AiMesh capabilities! I own 2 of these routers and this functionality would be extremely useful to help overcome the current implementation of client bridge setup that is far less stable/efficient (using DD-WRT on one).

    Any reason why this router has been ignored for this update?

    @arthurlien please don't quote me post #8!!

    The RT-AC87U has an unusual architecture, since it has two different manufacturers for its 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz radio. The 5 GHz radio even runs its own separate firmware. AiMesh requires to be able to remotely manage a router's wifi, which means basically Asus probably has to redesign it to work with the RT-AC87U's Quantenna radio. And personally, I'm not sure it's even technically possible, therefore unless Asus announces otherwise, I wouldn't expect the RT-AC87U to receive AiMesh support, due to these technical limitations.
