This is a great deal at $255 after collecting the
shop voucher. Can further bring it down by $20 if you collected the $20 lazada voucher earlier.

yes it's quite easy to create and control guest network access.. can set 2.4 or 5ghz, time limit, access to internet, and ap isolation.. but my guest networks are used to set up seperate subnets for my VPN tunnel to run on.. so just need to connect to the guest network SSID and would be covered by the VPN tunnel liao.. and also created one guest network just for my IoT devices to connect to.

Finally decided to buy this router and im using the default settings.
But notice there is a speed difference as it seems slower then my previous dlink 865. Eg using a same yt video using dlink to dl is around 10-20Mb/s, but after using this new asus router, speed seems to drop significantly at 8-9Mb/s only. Im on wired connection with Starhub 1gbps plan here. Is there any settings i can fine tune my direct connection speed?

Please help/advise me by using the most simplest form that a IT idiot like me can understand

Notice that a dl starts at >20Mb/s but imm drops to <10Mb/s like 1-2 secs later

too many variables and factors to consider.

for a start, have you updated to latest firmware?
QoS should be turned off if it's not.

consider flashing to asus-merlin firmware even if you are not intending to utilise the additional features in the near future. you can use its system log to see if there are any obvious issues that may be causing the speed drop.

Want to ask: I see that the USB HDD, there is an option to scan it periodically. I wonder if I need to set this if I reboot my router often, eg once a day or so.

Does it do a scan at boot up, in other words.

Thanks very very much.

Recently just purchased this router to replace my stock singtel router, everything improved but encountered 1 major issue, quite frequently my internet will dc and connect back again and it happens at least once a day. Anyone facing this problem? Stock firmware
