It is still worth buying but if your wifi has blind spot then it will be better to go for wifi mesh.

My issue is with its "USB Application".

I can't seem to get the Time Machine working regardless how religious I followed the instructions and troubleshooting. It either says that it can't find BackUp Disk or it will say "Waiting to Complete First Backup"...... Been a month and is still "backing up" with no success.

Anyone facing the same issue ?

AC68U? Just stay on it. You won't see sufficient improvements to make $190 worth it. Would probably make more sense to get it and sell the AC88U off, since RRP is much higher than $190.

Just use as normal. Using a repeater will slow down connection and there is nothing much you can do
