Asus RT-AC3200U and Asus RT-AC68U (Wireless Bridge mode)

Tell us how you think the ASUS AiMesh will benefit you!
Running Asus RT-AC3200U as main router but wireless signal can't reach the masterbed room. I have also Asus RT-AC68U but it is setup as Wireless Bridge mode to provide wired connections to all my machines in my study room.

It will be good to have another Asus router so that I can configure it as AiMesh to provide wireless signal to the bedrooms.

Mine is an old 5rm flat without wired connections unlike modern flats that can convert telephone points to LAN points thus I rely solely on wireless.

Hope AiMesh can help to eliminate wireless dead spots.

Tell us your:
- M1 Fibre Broadband 1Gbps
- RT-AC88U + RT-AC68U (wired AP mode)
- I actually tried out AiMesh the other day with my two existing routers. Surprisingly, the WIFI speed became slower, compared to my current setup. Wondering if the AC68 is the bottleneck. Hoping that the AC86 might unleash what AiMesh can really do.

To get the best, you need to mesh! So you can surf full of zest unlike the rest!

Asus is my favorite brand. I have 1 laptop, 1 AIO, 1 mobile and 1 router in the house. All are from Asus.

After much research, AC68 is the best value router that I can find. This brand and model has the widest support from people all around the world.

I upgraded from N66 to AC68 a few months ago. The new router has never disappoint me. I have a Foscam camera and an external drive connected to it.

My router is good enough to serve every corner of my 4 room HDB flat. However some corners are experiencing lower speed. I would like to try out the Aimesh to further improve the speed at the furthest away corner of my house. If it is really good, I am going to recommend to all of my friends.

Aimesh is a cheap solution if you have older Asus routers or if you try to buy 2nd hand models that support Aimesh. Asus routers are easily traded in the 2nd hand marketplace because of the high supply.

Lastly, Aimesh is an environmentally friendly initiative because you can recycle the older routers instead of disposing them.

A snapshot of my old AC68 router which is up for more than 2 months already. Asus rocks!

currently i am using 2 routers, both provided by Starhub (i think) when re-contacting my home broadband. Staying in a maisonette, there is obvious blind spots in terms of wifi-coverage. AiMesh is something that will definitely address the wifi-blindspot issue. Unlike typical mesh-networks, AiMesh consists of 2 full functioning routers, which helps in network management and security. This is exactly why i have yet to jump on the mesh networking bandwagon. The options out there are incomplete, some do offer backhaul some do not. Some offer more controls over the network, some limited controls. Most of the mesh networks comes with only 2 wired ports, so if 1 is used for backhaul, means only 1 is available to use. Almost all routers come with 4 lan ports available, and i know Asus even have 1 that has 8ports.
So in short, AiMesh is what i am waiting for in terms of networking. Full functioning routers with mesh network functions also.
Just awaiting for more to feedback on the quality and stability. As per most router users, i like 24/7 functionality.

As everything has become digital, wireless coverage is essential to everyday life.

Both me and my mum love baking and we will get the recipes / video online. But there is an issue, dead spot in the kitchen.

So Everytime when we streaming baking video, we need to go in and out of the kitchen to watch the video.

With this, we hope this will improve our baking experience.

Inorder to solve some dead spots in my house. With Asus Aimesh, I can just have another Asus router to mesh. Most importantly, I don't lose the features that I needed. The Aiprotection, Game boost as well as VPN.. (I bought Asus router initially for these features). With others mesh system I don't think I can get the combine features in one system.

With ASUS AiMesh, dead spots or low wifi signals caused by thick walls and distance is no longer an issue. As such, it will solve dead zones all around my house due to the ground breaking mesh technology which improves wifi coverage and ease of use.

Currently with 2 routers of same model even roaming within the premise can be a bit disruptive.
As i have tried autozoning on these routers but there are dis-advantages and shortfall.
Ideally home roaming on wireless should be similar to mobile data network.

ASUS AiMesh will be suitable to home wireless coverage.
For starter it is quick and easy to setup once.
Also it can add more routers as there are plenty of choice models to choose from.
Connection works seamlessly and stable as the main objective and priority.
In this way it connect in the background while on the go in and around the premise.
With these features it will provide the best performance.
And not to forget the advanced technology that ASUS did research on.
Finally with ASUS AiMesh it will fill the gap where it is distinction from other mesh system.


Thanks for reading.

Eric.

I've been wanting to buy a mesh system to improve my wireless signal. Now with AiMesh, i can dig out my retired AC68U and give it a few more good years.

My current NT-56U has served me well for all these years in my apartment, with the exception of one particular room where the WiFi coverage drops to almost nil.

AImesh will be able to make use of existing Asus routers (hopefully it supports NT-56U in the future) to help setup the mesh network to eliminate the 'dead spots' in my house, without needing to also purchase brand new mesh router sets.

I am currently already doing pseudo AiMesh, router & APs setting up with same SSID and password so when I walk around the house, when 1 signal drop it will connect to the next strongest node. However, in this case it is not really ideal since the the handling of the wifi signal is not seamless. This method I am using now will suffer from very poor wifi signal even when I am walking close to another stronger node but my device still connected to a weaker node. And also the dropping of wifi for a period when switching to a stronger node. If I can have another AiMesh enabled router, it would be perfect for me to upgrade the AC1200g+ so I can have a more seamless wifi experience when playing mobile legends and have to walk from mbr to kitchen to grab a drink.

All my APs are wan wired to main router and have lan devices connected, so normal Mesh system does not really suit my needs as they do not have enough lan ports. With Asus AiMesh using existing router to setup as AiMesh really provide enough lan ports with the convenience of Mesh wifi system.

I used to own a AC68U and sold it off when I upgraded to AC88U, had I know ASUS will be implementing AiMesh, I would not have sold AC68U.
