That's the other concern, there is no trial.. buy it and crossed fingers hope it works, I am not too technical but some basic Networking can lah. It is not cheap either for a set of three (Primary + 2 Child Nodes).

But will give it a try and hope for the best, as consumers we are really at the losing end if it does not work straight away good can return but if it works in the beginning then sometimes drop and at other times works, a lot of hair pulling arghh !!

Then, it will be deja vu money down the drain.

For trial? yes of course why not? PCMag Asia did a comparison between ASUS Lyra and Linksys Velop it was a close. Since they are both priced in the same ballpark, hmm.. may be a good test case.

Buying will mean going for Velop, it offers a 3 year warranty.

I'm afraid samo samo, product released requiring updates after updates and still making tweaks, nothing has changed from ASUS side. Looks like it is consistent across products.

How does the 86u performs in a 4R if placed unblocked at the living room?

All corners can hit?

Today, I bought the Netgear Orbi RBK53 at Expo SITEX, got home and replaced the ASUS RT-AC87U totally as the RBK53 Primary set is a Router and it Mesh WiFi to the remote sets (not sure I use correct terms but I am sure you guys know what I mean). It was simple to setup, all I did was follow the Quick Guide instructions and worked first time.

No using 3rd party Firmware blah blah...

So far so good, speed test at the farthest end using iPhone7 got me a Download/Upload of 264.99Mbps/232.06Mbps respectively. As long as the connection is stable I am a happy camper speed is secondary to me. Damn it cost me $899 and no free gifts.

$899 for 200Mbps+ download and upload, you're very rich sir! :s13:
You should also be able to hit that kind of speed even with the Velop @ $549.

This is at the farthest end of my home. Reviews seems to favour Orbi so I went with that.

most important works for you, I can never be willing to spend $899 on Wi-Fi! :s13: too much for too little

For end to end coverage with consistent and stable connectivity, that to me is well spent. I just hate it when manufacturers like to overstate their product capability and take buyers as suckers.

Can fool people once and that's it. Bye bye ASUS :s27:

What speeds were you getting on your phone at the farthest spot when you were using the Asus 87u?
