What's your preference between the RT-AX82U and the RT-AX58U ? It seems like your numbers are a bit better for the AX82U.

Did you notice any major difference in performance between AX56u vs AX58u?
edit: Particularly when using 80Mhz?

Had to replace a AC86U so decided to give the AX58U a try. Got an Intel AX200 M.2 card for my laptop. Speed is really good. Did a Acronis backup ( about 35Gb in size) to a Synology NAS on our home network (1Gb speed) and got an average of 490/mbps, hardwired I get about 700 so I'm pleased.
Got a 2nd 58U to replace our other 86U (used as access point) and a couple more AX200 cards for the upstairs computers that usually connect to the AP.

I am also looking to replace my RT AC86U - so do we think that the RT-AX58U or even a 56U will be a good step up? Hoping that it will receive lots of upgrades etc from Asus as the WiFi 6 standard matures.

Can you comment on how far the laptop was from AX58u? Also, what is the link speed shown and whether 160MHz is active?

Not really. AC86U is a very good router. Unless you have a lot of AX devices now. Else no point to upgrade it.

Question: What is the current CFE version being used for a stock setup on the AX58U.
