    Thanks to Max who helped to test both Asus RT-AX88U and RT-AC86U with this Galaxy S10+. He has poor performance on WiFi 6 compare to WiFi 5. This confirmed my test results are true also. Well, RT-AX88U is still a great wireless router for AC devices. But just not worth the price for AX devices. At least for now...



    Note - I will update the test when there is improvement. Still waiting for my RT-AX88U to return and new GT-AX11000 to arrive.

    Look like Asus fixed the WiFi 6 performance issue on the latest firmware. :)

    It will be a year or 2 before they get the firmware right.
