May I know the firmware on your AC66U? I cant even get pass beyond 200mbps for my 5Ghz wifi using iphone XS. Normally stuck at ~160mbps. For the direct cable connection I can get to around 700mbps. The fibre line under M1 1Gbps.

Any recommendation for setting as well for the normal wireless setting for the AC66U?

And sorry to digress a bit, can I bought another AC66U, and making it as AP by connecting it wirelessly to main AC66U router? AC66U 2nd hand quite cheap to source as main reason hahaha
Your AC66U could be original HW version A1 (CPU at single core 600Mhz), while AC66U B1 is a lot faster (1Ghz dual core). Just look at the voltage, A1 is 1.58A, while B1 is 1.75A.

I just tested out Dlink 868L as repeater for my PC (on LAN), was able to hit 450Mbps. If I used back my 850L as repeater, it will only be 300Mbps+. 850L is 660Mhz Realtek, while 868L is broadcom 800Mhz dual core. so, a speed bump of 140Mhz can get it faster by 100Mbps+. Also, 868L linkspeed is quite stable at 867Mbps, while 850L linkspeed can fluctuate between 580Mbps to 867Mbps.

So, if you get AC66U, make sure its B1, or you can also consider the RT-1200G+, cpu is at 900Mhz, brand new some more at around $30.

channel bandwidth I left it at auto 20/40/80.
