In a nutshell - thinking of buying a new router to upgrade from my RT-AC87u and as there aren't many WIFI 6 devices still figured the AC86u was the best bang for buck to go for?
(even better if my some miracle there is a Prime Day Deal)

Anyway my question is, is there an easy way to migrate settings such as Manual DHCP and static IP etc from the AC87u I have now to the new router or will I have to do it all again manually?

Side question should I be considered something else instead of the AC86u? Seems compelling at £150 as AX86u is £230
That £80 difference gets you more than twice the router and 3 or 4 years newer too.
