ASUS RT-AC5300 in full setup

It's huge and heavy

Dimension ~ (245 x 245 x 65 ~ mm (WxDxH) VS AC88U @ 11.8 (299.72mm) x 7.4 (187.96mm) x 3.3 (83.82mm) ~ inch (WxDxH) and (weight - 1814g VS AC88U @ 950g) nevertheless it's offering better thermals as shown later part of my posts.







Power Adapter - it's supersized as well lol .....

Better performance comes with more power consumption i supposed

ASUS Second generation Tri-band Smart Connect Optimisation

Let me go through what's Broadcom's second generation Tri-band Smart Connect is all about?



Automatically chooses the best band available



Optimised by Device Speed

Smart Connect will automatically evaluate which devices data consumption and place in the various band.



Load Balancing

What's happens if more devices are add and thus that one of the 5GHz band get overloaded?



Smart connect will automatically moves that particular device to a less congested band.



Results?

All devices are getting their optimised speed as intended.

Same chips as AC88 but will the wifi performance be better due to the proprietary antennas?

Important Note

The latest firmware (3.0.0.4.380.838 onwards for ASUS RT-AC5300) resolves the QIS SingTel VLAN profiles not applied correctly. It has been tested and QIS now works as intended.

Those SingTel Fiber Internet users with SingTel TV are strongly encouraged to update to this version before proceeding with the QIS or manual selection of the preset SingTel VLAN profiles.

Other ISPs AC5300 users need not update to this firmware version.

ASUS SG will post the download links shortly.





Full QIS screenshots, one can refer to my AC5300 thread.
