Thinking of using this to replace my existing singtel aztech router but it resides in the dB box. Wonder whether this monster can fit in or not. (Can it stand?) But the wireless will be abit useless if kept inside.

Just FYI, don't bother with Changi City Point Challenger, they are out-of-stock.

At Challenger Funan, the stocks are not on the shelves. You need to go to the counter at the network/wi-fi section and ask for it.

1 down. 2 more to go. (I have 3 AC87U.... )

Important Note

The latest firmware (3.0.0.4.380.941 onwards for ASUS RT-AC88U) 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 AC88 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.

Very happy overseas AC88 user

How i wish our environment is like this

Here is a comparison in my house in the center between both routers at an equal distance, one on each end of the house on the main floor with the routers in the basement:





So you can see a significant difference in the 2.4ghz, and a little difference in the 5ghz. But Again, the 5Ghz channel for the 88U is solid and the N66 is bouncing, this was a good shot with the N66 signal at it's peak. these are in my basement with concrete walls surrounding them, while I am upstairs measuring between them.

Not scientific, but my real world feel.

Edit:
I know, different joists, different materials, different carpet, etc. But this is the same configuration I had with the N66 as the main router and an N56 as the AP, and it is night and day difference for me.
