Thanks for the review Tim. Wish I could compare to my old AC68U.

There is a huge plethora of USB wifi adapters out there, is there anything you would recommend for good 2.4 band if running the AX86U?

I have not tested any adapters. The only AX USB adapter is/was the D-Link DWA-X1850. But it's MIA on the D-Link site and there is no sign of it on Amazon.

For 2.4 GHz AC, most any adapter will do.

Thanks for doing this. Glad you are back helping us all understand the realities of the market. Your concise and thoughtful insights for me are the best I read, making sense of what vendors claim and what really works.
