Just bought it after reading this post to take advantage of the $299 promo. Initially wanted to use it to replace the RT-AC66u as a main router, and use the 66u for AMAS when it's supported. Turns out the 86u is strong enough to pierce 2 1/2 thick walls without much noticeable impact on speed.

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
Quickly update your AC86U with the AC86U AMAS firmware, same for your AC68U and bench away

I'm excited and keen to see your feedback Professional @ work leh don't play play

I'm sure my ASUS TW AMAS team will be delighted as well

As usual my WoW latency was yellow again while raiding last night.

Tonight since down for maintenance i will do the swap to the 86U than see how my latency will be. Based on my past experience with WTFast, it usually gives me green latency for WoW so hopefully it will continue working once everything is up.

You are too hardcore @ WOW leh .... Hoot the ASUS RT-AC86U until now cannot just down the AC68U and setup meh You another BNIB box collector too ah?

Wish i have the luxury of spare time to set up my ASUS ROG X399 Zenith Extreme ..... things are coming in bits and pieces now have to wait for another water-cooling part (mono block) to come down before i can commence.

Finally found time to swap out my 68U for the 86U. About the same size or at least feels that for me and the familiar admin page means quick config.

WTFast basic router account or something like seems to be working giving me green latency. Not as low as i would have preferred but maybe cos i need to do more testing which server to connect to.

Will report back again after more testing.

Anyone knows if there are differences between different country sets? Am thinking of getting one from either China or US (where it's much cheaper).

Understand there might be Wifi channel differences, but wonder if this is software (and if it can be changed).

Don't think so. There is an option in the wireless settings that can set region. There's China and USA there too I think
