I am setting up a new small school network(10 desktops wired and wireless, 10 laptops wireless). I want a Merlin compatible router. From the official list below can someone recommend something that might last me 3-5 years and still have some support.

Thanks in advance,
Walt

RT-AC86U is the first Asus HND router, 4y old already and with reported overheating (and other) issues.
RT-AC66U B1 is perhaps the best budget router, but the coverage is not as good as newer AX routers with updated radio modules.

The one I can buy here in Thailand is 300 USD and comes with the title AX5700. Will that still work with Merlin?
