I wonder if it's going to have the same screwed up wireless lan interface lineup that the AXE16000 has... if so, RTRMON is set! :p

(BTW, you might want to remove that "release" tag on this thread, else certain forum members will start getting all upset.) ;)
 
Merlin support depends on the chipset the router uses. It could be Broadcom (BCM4398), but there is also Qualcomm (Pro 1620) and Mediatek (Filogic 380) that make a WiFi 7 router chipset. If it's Broadcom we might get lucky.

I did a little more digging and found this schematic drawing from Broadcom:
Broadcom 802.11be.png


That looks very much like the configuration offered by this GT-BE98 minus the two BCM50991 2.5G LAN's.

I think the only thing it's missing is that RJ-11 port for my fax machine. :p

Would the BETA tag be better???

Fixed: I'll let the boss fix it if he thinks it's the wrong tag. It is a new release to market...

I think you'd need a "TBD" tag. ;)
 
And here is the none GT version:
ASUS RT-BE96U

 
With semiconductors shrinking, why do these things keep getting bigger???
Simple. More WiFi's = more antennas = more bandwidths = bigger internet tubes.
 
Your Google Nest is like the fax machine in routers anyway. No "performance" design whatsoever. Read here what a proper router is:


The arachnid look has been hideous from the start.

How about small, demure, easy on the eyes, unobtrusive, attractive, easily hidden, blendable, ...

This is not a centerpiece for the dinner table as far as the looks go.
 
Available:


Camo is unattractive: Camo is suppose to blend with the environment, I think the blue light in the middle negates its purpose.
