  • My experience has been great

    from Vaughan on November 9, 2019

    I have had the unit for over a month now and so far this unit is amazing. I have had no issues so far and am extremely happy. I am using it with another Asus router in airmesh. I may pick up another of these to make it even better.

  • Impressed so far

    from Ontario on August 2, 2019

    This is actually my first review on a product ever. Cons - expensive but in all honestly you get what you pay for. Pros - So this is the new Wireless 6, and I must say I am impressed, but before buying understand what your requirements and needs are. I but two of these devices; I use one as my main router and the other as an access point. I have a 500 Mbps connection, I actually average above 400 Mbps TX/RX to my devices that are attached to the access point (which was my goal). I also have the Velop Mesh system, I average around 60 to 80 Mbps, so yes the math says it's 5 times the speeds (I do at times get 160 Mbps with the Velop Mesh but it's rare). I might request my carrier to upgrade be to 1.5Gbps just to see TX/RX thresholds are to my devices. I will admit the ASUS setup is not the simplest out of the box, and the 160 MHZ is not enabled by default, If you're expected higher speeds buying one Router, it's probably not going to happen as you need an AX compatible client cards to take advantage of the network speeds,

  • Awesome Technology best router ever! Perfect upgrade for my RT-AC87U

    Best all around gaming router with next generation AX6000 technology. Only negative thing is the high price but otherwise it's perfect 👌
