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
This case is solved & closed.
Just want to say thanks to Avertek counter staff for their professional service.

I have requested to test my phone on a older model AC66, he promptly went in to check stock availability. Out he comes with it ! Impressed.
Requested too for him to show me the LAN speed of my AC88 & this too ,he did.

Thank you & sorry forgotten you name. A Chinese chap with spec.

As i said i never use official FW before so not sure got any differences. Just perform FW upgrade like how u do for official FW upgrade in router page(192.168.xxx). If u upgrade to Merlin FW the very first time, it is recommended to restore your router to default after the upgrade and reconfigure the settings again

Install the Asus Discovery app
https://www.asus.com/US/support/FAQ/1037097
https://www.asus.com/support/FAQ/1037096/

Connect to the Wi-Fi, and scan the app
It will tell you what the IP address is.
