No one can claim that theirs can handover 100% flawlessly, seamlessly and instantaneously. This includes Cisco AiroNet, Aruba, Ruckus, Ubiquiti etc and bare in mind all those i have mentioned are enterprise grade of cos all of these are more than capable to to handle hundreds/thousands connections per node/in between the nodes etc etc depending on the implementation and scale.

I can't totally comment whether that ASUS AMAS can do handover good or not good yet as it's still in the works hence beta phase and fine tuning is always ongoing.

The aim of AMAS is to extend this functionality to ASUS routers is that we are not sacrificing our features in ASUSWRT whom users are using it well and without getting any other mesh WiFi solutions out there to replace their ASUS routers and find that it's not serving them well.

From ASUS TW Wilson Deng's introduction on AMAS.

Quote:

For all WiFi systems on market, you will need to buy 3 in 1 pack or 2 in 1 pack at one time,
and it cost lot of money. AMAS supported ASUS routers, on the other hand, you can buy one
first, and try to find is there any room in your house you want to extend, if so, then you can
buy another one to join AMAS network.

ASUS care about all our customers and new customers.
When applying AMAS, don’t worry about losing any fancy and advanced features, such as
AiProtection, Adaptive QoS…etc. all features will be supported, just the way you are!

With the comex coming tml and the price for this is $299. Do u guys think this is a good choice? Wanted to use this as wired AP to my current AC88U and in the future set it up as AMAS

Is this better than AC68U? Gonna upgrade so thinking of either AC68u or this. Will Merlin create a firmware for this new AC86u?

Managed to get the answers thanks to maylyn!

So for specs wise, AC86U is definitely far superior than AC68U which was release in 2013.

For Merlin firmware on AC68U. He have said that it won't be supported in near future. But uncertain about later.

So those who wants to use Merlin with this AC86U may have to think through.

Merlin have replied to my enquiry and said this.

"I don't know yet. Will definitely not be in the near future, as a lot of work is involved since this is a radically different software platform."

Hmm my 86u can't seem to block any urls using the filter. Is this a software issue? How do I fix this?

What urls are you trying to block, any e.g.?
There are some limitations to this url blocking:

I have tried blocking http links like ocsp.apple.com and mesu.apple.com but it does not work. Used to work on my rt ac56s. Have opened a tech support case with them. Thx for the help!

xonix 03-09-2017 11:10 AM

I seem to recall httpS links can't be blocked.

Just bought it from comex and hopefully it will be a good upgrade from my 68U. Best if the AMAS works as intended and the WTFast
