ASUS RT-AX88U vs ZenWifi XT8 (single node)


New Around Here
I will be building a new network and use my old RT-AC86U to either use as AP or mesh for my home entertainment system. I will then use the Wifi6 with my gaming laptop and other modern devices.

There is an ongoing promotion on Amazon where I could get a single unit ASUS XT8 unit for cheaper than a RT-AX88U. Which one would better serve me if I want to make sure I will have good signal while also adding smart home devices? Any advises would be appreciated.

RT-AX86U is more popular than RT-AX88U. It's a newer model router with 2.5GbE port and updated software.
