Hey guys, encounter Internet disconnection issue that last 30 seconds for almost every 5~10minutes.

The router webpage will show "Internet status: Disconnected".
This happen since Friday night and lasted till now. I've upgraded the firmware today to 3.0.0.4.384_45149-g467037b but do not see any improvement.

Anyone can help?

Guys, router will degrade in performance over time?

Can't believe I am achieving a DL speed of 600Mbps on my MacBook Pro initially and now it is less than 200Mbps

Even after RMA also same issue zzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Maybe not the router issue but rather your testing method or the ISP.

My Linksys WRT1900AC is still going strong after 4 and half years of 7/24/365 usage. It is supposedly comparable to Asus RT-AC68U.

So far my AC88 going strong after 3 years.

Maybe firmware?

I wonder what I encounter below is unusual or what?

Was using M1 supplied RT-AC1200G+ & could get Network speed at 866Mbps from my phone S7 5Ghz band.

Bought RT-AC88U expecting better speed but was dismal to find only 433Mbps with the same phone S7 5Ghz band.

Both routers setting are at default & with firmware latest. Cable from WAN is cat7. Measuring distance & time all same.

My M1 is FIBRE 1Gbps plan.

What could be the problems? Another dud AC88U?

Hope some seniors here can enlighten. Thanks

Possible, just go for one to one exchange.

That’s just link rate, it’s more practical to test actual throughput. Do a Speedtest to see which gives you better speed. A bit pointless to compare link rate.

Try setting your 5ghz bandwidth to 80mhz

Speedtest also showing same results.
My old router AC1200G+ >400Mbps DL , >500Mbps UL
Now AC88U only <300Mbps DL, <400Mbps DL
