Is it worth to replace current Asus RT-AC68U by Asus ZenWiFi (AX)? I am mainly looking for support for wifi6 and mesh.

What ZenWiFi models would you recommend?
  • XT8
  • ET8 (new WiFi 6e -model, limited availability at the moment)
  • XD6
  • XD4

For mesh, should I buy one new ZenWiFi and use my old AC68 as a meshnode, or should I buy two new units for better wifi quality?

Asus have a lot challenges with ZenWifi to make those stable

If you want to have good Asus AX go with AX86U router. I know that for same people ZenWiFi looks good but ... do you want to sleep at night?

here topic about node for AX86U https://www.snbforums.com/threads/ax86u-what-to-use-as-mesh-node.68059/
if it is not issue with budget I will go with 2 AX86U but check before how 1 operate - range etc as AX86U have very good wi-fi - you can connect as Node AC68U if needed.
