Tell us how you think the ASUS AiMesh will benefit you!
My current router ASUS RT-AC565 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 wall plug 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.

Current router model : ASUS RT-AC87U

Tell us how you think the ASUS AiMesh will benefit you:
My fiber point is right next to the door entrance thus my ASUS router has to be place near it. This results in the other end of my flat with low signal coverage. With a new ASUS AiMesh compatible router, it will solve this issue. Whatís better is that, I will get no more dead spots and can be sure that I will not get signal drop off when moving around my flat! No more speed compromised as well!!

Canít wait to win one and tell my friends how good it is compared to other mesh solutions in the market so far! LOL !!


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)

Form must come with function, the gt-ac5300 have it's very unique form and it's powerful functions too. But it lacks expandability, it would only be a standalone router and not communicating with the router as it lack mesh functions . Asus went the other way compared to the other brands by incorporating mesh function to existing product rather than forcing people to buy new sets and not utilising the old router. I think it is a very smart move and would pull in more new users. For this case , and a a a

Currently very happy with RT-AC88U except for 2 spots in the 4 room HDB unit, likely due to the walls in between. We can see wifi signal strength dropping 80%.

With new ASUS AiMesh, this would definitely provision for a wider coverage with better performance than rival's solution. Given the ability to link up with several Asus routers, we can add on more to the ASUS AiMesh in future when needed.

We hope to win the RT-AC86U to link up and start using ASUS AiMesh right away! Thank you!

Tell us how you think the ASUS AiMesh will benefit you!

My love story with Asus started when I am using RT-N66U (Codename Black Knight). Back then It was the best performance, however it is also the most expensive router in the market. Ever since I knew my future routers got to be an Asus. I have trusted the company products and upgraded to an Asus RT-AC68U. Reception became a major problem when I moved to a new flat with many concrete wall leading yo my bedroom. It is like a maze. Wifi signal suffered. At times, the internet connection dropped. Making things worse, the M1 cellular reception is poor as well, feeling is like surfing on old school 56kps dialup modem, due to the new HDB area. I am overjoyed when I know that I can continue using my beloved RT-AC68U with the new Asus models. I need Asus AiMesh badly. Please help us. (boonjet@yahoo.com.sg)

Since I fit one of the model as stated for AiMesh I hope I could receive another router to serve me better in connection speed and kill the dead spot where I usually need wifi so I believe this Asus AiMesh would benefit me.

My router is position right at 1 corner of the whole house due to the fibre point being there. So I get no signal at the other end of the house, the kitchen. One end of the master bedroom also get very weak signal.
Hopefully , the AiMesh by Asus will give me better coverage and seamless hands off.

- With the router at the living room, it seems impossible to get a solid and stable WiFi connection at my brother's room which is further beyond the kitchen. Absolutely love my current router for its design cue and the raw speed it can provide for my desktop in the living room, I just couldn't bare to change it to other mesh systems. Now with this Asus AiMesh, I do not have to replace my current router but instead just have to purchase an extra eligible router, mesh them up together and viola, I would have a mesh network up and still able to retain my powerful Asus RT-AC88U.

My current Router is placed in the Living room as that's where the Fibre ONT is located.
It's Wireless signal could not reach all 3 of my bedrooms, and I have to use a Wireless Repeaters which its really the best option and I still have dead spots here and there. Thus, looking forward to using ASUS AiMesh to provide full coverage for my house.

Current router model: ASUS RT-AC88U

Tell us how you think the ASUS AiMesh will benefit you:

I'm using the the RT-AC88U as the main router with an old router running as a repeater. While the 2.4Ghz range is good, bandwidth is bad as it suffers from a lot of neighbouring interference. The 5Ghz range is weak/useless once I am in a separate room.

Since I don't want to use different SSIDs, handover between router and repeaters is not smooth. It still cling on to the repeater even when I move closer to the router and vice versa. Often I have to disable/enable the wireless on my client to force my client to switch to a stronger signal.

AiMesh will solve all the above with smooth handover and better bandwidth. Management is also easier with Central unifed management compared to having to login to each router individually.

Instead of getting a buying a new Mesh system like Google Wifi or Linksys Velop or Netgear Orbi, I can just get an existing Asus router to addon to my RT-AC88U. - Lower Cost.

I can still use the existing features like Link Aggregation, AiProtection, Traffic Analyzer and Game Boost in the RT-AC88U or similar Asus Routers. - Better Features.

Mostly, I don't have to learn a new Product User Interface since I am already know the Asus interface, features and functionality. Easy, Familiar Interface.

Having 1 router at home nowadays does not cover every corner of the house, leading to frustrations regarding network coverage. With the AiMesh, we are able to add routers at different corners of our home to increase network coverage, and also have the flexibility to add different router models to our existing one to create a AiMesh that suit our needs. We are also able to create a seperate SSiD to seperate visitors and owners.

Have been using AC-87U for the past 3 years, not much of an issue. connection is stable. But there is one thing, when i am using the toilet, signal is weak and disconnect intermittently. Thus with AiMesh, i hope it can solve my problem.

A mesh network will help to eliminate the dead zones in my home when I pair my existing Asus Router with another new one.

Wanted to extend coverage in my home but didn't want to waste my existing router. Different SSID would be pretty cool as the kids wont have signal to use in their room if their devices is tied to the outside router
