Been very happy with my Netgear RAX200 router (Broadcom based) except for the fact that I can't run a OpenVPN client on it. So bought an Asus RT-AX89X (QCA based) and had high hopes for it. Whilst I had no issues running OpenVPN, wifi coverage (both on wifi 5 & 6) on it was worse than the AX200 - despite using same radio settings as the RAX200. For example, my laptop with an Intel AX200 card couldn't connect at more than 2 Gb/s when right next to the AX89X and only 400 Mbps at the furthest point - yet with the RAX200 i was getting 2.4 Gb/s and 1.2 Gb/s respectively. So is this just a case of Asus' wifi drivers for AX89X being poor or the fact that QCA wifi 6 routers just aren't as good as their Broadcom counterparts for wifi? I know to get a clearer answer I could try the Netgear RAX120 (also QCA based) but this offers me no extra features over the RAX200. For now, I will keep the AX89X as a spare/back-up router and hope future firmware updates might improve wifi performance. Btw will the AX89X ever get the Merlin firmware treatment?
