I have read many reviews on mesh WiFi technology however I have yet the chance to try this new technology. Coming from an existing ASUS user, I believe ASUS AiMesh can definitely makes an entry point for me to try it out.
Furthermore, my existing model is compatible. Cheers.

My home has a lot of corners and rooms and AIMesh will ensure bandwidth and coverage are strong through the home! It will also save me money by using my existing router!



Hello everyone!

Who thinks it's time for a giveaway from us?

Just before CES 2018, ASUS announced AiMesh Whole-Home Wi-Fi for ASUS Routers. For those who don't know what that is - AiMesh is basically a free new router feature that connects multiple ASUS routers to create a whole-home Wi-Fi system, offering users a powerful and flexible alternative to proprietary mesh systems.

With AiMesh, all routers can still use all their own features, as well as all the features of the other routers ó with easy central control of all settings from the ASUS Router mobile app or ASUSWRT. So great features like AiProtection, QoS and Parental Controls work across the entire network, ensuring that no-one can bypass them by connecting to a different router. (Just remember to always connect your highest-specification router to your internet service)



Read more about it here.

Currently I can only connect 2.4GHz in my bedrooms which is also used by my Home Automation devices. Want to have wider coverage of 5GHz band for my bedrooms and kitchen.

Currently using homeplug to cover the blindspots at the extreme corners of the house. With ASUS AiMesh, I can add on the new RT-AC86U to my existing home network and extend the Wi-Fi coverage with multiple SSIDs for different users, and I can retire the old homeplugs !

Tell us how you think the ASUS AiMesh will benefit you!: I have dead spot in the bedroom that is furthest away from the router (I think due to the huge mirrors) and there're a number of devices in the bedroom that would work better with wired connection. The AiMesh would allow me to link up my AC88U with a cheap AC68U router to enhance the network at home and eliminate the dead spot entirely.

I am running two wifi networks at home as my main router signal is very weak at my master bedroom location. I have tried homeplug but the speed is too slow and thus i opted to lay a physical cable to my bedroom and setup another router there. By having the AiMesh, i know that i can enjoy the benefits of strong wifi signal everywhere at my home and most importantly, no need to switch wifi network manually from router A to router B.

Internet plan: My current plan is Starhub 1Gbps Fibre broadband

Current router model : Dlink DIR-850L
Tell us how you think the ASUS AiMesh will benefit you:
Living in a 2 storey mansionette, our router is situated at the entrance, leaving little or nil wifi coverage upstairs. We have no choice but to resort to a wifi repeater. To make things worse, we are a huge family of 8 with multiple laptops and mobile phones which are all strangling the limited bandwith available. Therefore, we are paying so much monthly for a fibre broadband but can only deliver "dial-up" internet speeds, negatively affecting everyone's internet experience. With the ASUS AiMesh, it can definitely fix my whole family's internet woes and can finally use our internet plan to its maximum capacity. Fingers crossed!!!

ASUS AiMesh will benefit me by giving more stable and reliable wifi connection without any interruptions or disconnections so I can watch/stream high resolution videos and play online games smoothly. My current router has weak wifi coverage in some corners of my house and even at short distances to rooms the signal is not very good. I hope by using Asus AiMesh it can help to utilise the advanced technical features together and combine with my current router to greatly improve and enhance the WiFi connection throughout my entire house so I can get the best configuration and performance from the compatible routers and have a more productive experience.

ASUS AiMesh will benefit me by allowing me to have a second router in my house where signal is weak in one room and mesh it with my upcoming rt88u so that I don't need to switch between routers

Just upgraded to RT-AC88U, however the coverage could not reach the furtherest corner of my 5 room flat. AiMesh feature came as an upgrade to the RT-AC88U router after I got it. It will definitely help to extend the wifi coverage with only one point of configuration. With this, I can move my NAS away from my internet point and hide it the storeroom to declutter the living room

My current router ASUS RT-AC68U has a good coverage of my house, however there is a few area where the signal strength is slightly weak. That result into slow and lagging network which is annoying. To run a physical lan cable to the area is unsightly and messy, and connecting thru ethernet homeplug adapter reduces network speed.
The AiMesh will definitely able to benefit my family in giving us the full ASUS network experience without the sacrifice of network speed and undesired cable laying or renovation.

The fibre termination point is situated in an odd place within the hdb unit. As a result, it is difficult for the signal to reach interior rooms. I have tried various models of router but they fail to utilize the 1Gbps bandwidth as they provide weaker wifi signal in corner.
A mesh network may help to eliminate this by strategically positioning the router(s) and allow the wifi signal reach the dead zones or corners.
