Year 2017 is almost over and still no 382 version for AC87U. Guess it might be on the bottom of the list of the 382 release? Not sure if it will ever get the limited AiMesh support at all with this pace.
Not holding my breath on that or on the hope that Asus will make it better product ( their flagship product ? ) but will have to look for another router at some point.

RT-AC87U will probably receive 382 at some point I guess but would be buggy . So either Asus wouldn't bother to fix them or get away with the "chipset limitation" excuse. On way or the other Asus is and will probably move away from it.

In that case i would get another router be it Asus or another manufacture. Don't wait out in the cold. The 87 has been a problem since it's release. Do you think it will get better with time ??

I thought I read somewhere that Asus plan is to get RT-AC87U to 382 branch, but with (almost) lowest priority. AC86U and RT-AC5300 were in the first group. RT-AC88U, RT-AC68U (and RT-AC3200?) are in the second group, while DSL-AC68U and RT-AC87U are in the last group to get. I can barely remember where I read this from, so it might not be accurate.
