Hi,

Just bought the 8 legged monster to replace my 4 year old AC66U.

Placed at the same location, same settings etc.....but I am shocked that I cannot detect the first 5Ghz SSID in my room which I have full signal previously......

Stay in HDB 5 room flat and the distance is less than 5m with only 1 wall in between.

The other 5Ghz can be detected but upon connection the speed is much lower....

Is there something I need to set in the router?
the router might have selected a channel which might not be supported by your wireless device... is smart connect turned on?

I have yet to test the reliability and the performance of the wireless function.

go to wireless section, then choose the band which u cannot detect, try to bring it to the lowest channel, cos usually higher channels might not be supported in older devices..

There's a guy selling challenger vouchers $400 for $350 in the gen. merchandise section. Can save 50 bucks if you are buying this router or AC88U from challenger.

Picked up one set from SITEX at ~6.30pm. Looked around and looks like there are 2 units left in the exhibition. Really like hot cakes!

QIS (Quick Internet Setup)

Setting up the ASUS RT-AC5300 a breeze, just enter the one's desire SSID and password, first time changing of admin's password etc and that's it.


I chose the M1 Fiber profile for my network, however it resulted in no internet connectivity with the internet indicator showing a red light. then everything worked normally once i changed to default (no ISP profile). Noob question - when it says VOIP LAN 3, does it mean I can plug a VOIP device to that port and skip the telephone port on the modem?

Smart connect works well with my devices. I'd wish I can tweak the channels though; all settings are Auto when in smart connect mode. as it is, there are a bunch of 2.4Ghz networks on the default Channel 6. This can only be changed if smart connect is off.

Just want to share this feedback, but certainly none are show-stoppers. Overall very pleased with the performance. Considerable upgrade over my DIR-850L. I had thought to use the old router as a media bridge, unfortunately it's not in DD-WRT's supported list.
