For 5 Ghz connection

Should I set preamble to long or short for 5g connection?
What is wifi hardware offloading?
And why is it that when I enable ai protection, my speed only drop to 500mbps to 600 at most and uploading is around 100 and slowly drops to 10+?Ok, but no issue with my wifi speed test.

So this router can be used for VQ 2Gbps to 1 PC?
Yes, this ASUS BRT-AC828 will be can used with VQ 2Gbps to 1 PC plan as i have posted earlier

VQ should be setting up to showcase their VQ 2Gbps this coming IT show same like the previous 2 shows before.

Up to the current GPON standard (2.488 Gbits/s downstream and 1.244 Gbits/s upstream). Do note GbE LAN has TCP/IP overheads
hence ~ WAN-LAN is about close to 1.9Gbps down/950+Mbps up.



ASUS TW and Viewqwest have tested the ASUS BRT-AC828 extensively and it works

Viewqwest has been using it for demo to showcase their 2Gbps Fiber Service SpeedTest since SITEX 2016 and PC show 2016.



No comments on the NetGear R7800 and Synology AC2600, you sure their dual WAN is working flawlessly?

More information ~> https://routerguide.net/preamble-type-short-or-long/

You can just google what is WiFi hardware offloading and have a read

As for AiProtection -> Enabling AiProtection will result NAT acceleration to be disabled (there is a dialog box prompting such), hence you have to weight whether to use AiProtection over NAT acceleration for speed.

Btw, I can only connect to ethernet lan port 5 for my wan connection, and it says switching to primary WAN port disable my IPTV configuration. I am on singtel 1gbp home bundle with mio tv.

I'm not able to replicate the usual SingTel 1Gbps with SingTel-MIO TV VLAN setup as my SingTel Fiber is 10Gbps uses the HuaWei HN8254 for XGPON/routing ... Looks to me it's inherent in hardware design with various LAN ports are assigned for WAN.

Nevertheless is your setup working for you? which you are able to connect to Internet and SingTel TV working?

These are just WiFi/Syslog debugging entries, you can safely ignore it
kernel: [wifi0] FWLOG: [61453792] WAL_DBGID_DEV_TX_TIMEOUT ( 0x0, 0x1 )


My router is flooded with these entries. 20 per second.....

Just continue to ignore to for the time being, ASUS TW is in the mist of finalising the next official firmware update (no ETA as yet) which removes/truncate all these entries.

I still got all these in my .7008 firmware version

Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ ac brings new advances in Wi-Fi® performance

Expanded features bring higher performance, speed, and capacity to Wi-Fi networks

Austin, TX, June 29, 2016 – Wi-Fi Alliance® is expanding Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ ac to include new features that provide a higher-performance mobility experience. New “wave 2” features enable Wi-Fi® to more efficiently handle high-bandwidth applications from an increasing number of smartphones, tablets, TVs, and other consumer electronics devices simultaneously connected to Wi-Fi networks. Wi-Fi CERTIFIED ac delivers greater network capacity and multi-gigabit speeds to benefit consumers, service providers, and enterprises.

Multi-user Multiple Input Multiple Output (MU-MIMO) is among the most anticipated new features of Wi-Fi CERTIFIED ac, allowing more devices to operate simultaneously on the same network without sacrificing speed or performance. In addition to increased network capacity enabled with MU-MIMO, devices supporting the full set of new features are capable of achieving up to three times the speed of devices supporting only original Wi-Fi CERTIFIED ac features. The newly introduced features are:

MU-MIMO: Networks with MU-MIMO are capable of multitasking by sending data to multiple devices at once rather than one-at-a-time, improving overall network efficiency and throughput

160 MHz channels: Wi-Fi CERTIFIED ac increases the maximum channel bandwidth from 80 MHz channels to 160 MHz channels, potentially doubling transmission speeds

Four spatial streams: Device speeds are proportional to the number of spatial streams. Wi-Fi CERTIFIED ac now includes support for four spatial streams, up from three spatial streams.

Extended 5 GHz channel support: Wi-Fi CERTIFIED ac encourages device support for a greater number of available channels in 5 GHz. Support for additional channels makes more efficient use of available spectrum and reduces interference and congestion by minimizing the number of networks operating on overlapping channels.

“Wi-Fi CERTIFIED ac gives users a greater experience in dense environments by maximizing Wi-Fi network resources, providing a richer set of features, and enabling the full potential of the technology,” said Andrew Zignani, research analyst, ABI Research. “Wi-Fi Alliance assists in the proliferation of certified products into the market, and we expect an increasing number of data-intensive devices to support the new features for Wi-Fi CERTIFIED ac that will benefit device end users through this certification process.”

Wi-Fi CERTIFIED ac was the first version of Wi-Fi to break the gigabit barrier, accelerating the shift to greater utilization of the 5 GHz band. Now, more than 65 percent of devices are dual-band, operating in both 2.4 and 5 GHz. The Wi-Fi CERTIFIED interoperability certification program will increase product support for newly supported features from a wide variety of mobile devices and access points, and 96 percent of devices will be dual-band by 2020. Access points supporting new features are expected to dominate the market within the next five years.

“In today’s world, people have more Wi-Fi devices per person and per household, and those devices require significantly more bandwidth,” said Edgar Figueroa, president and CEO of Wi-Fi Alliance. “Wi-Fi Alliance updated the Wi-Fi CERTIFIED ac program to meet increasing user demands and to stay ahead of emerging applications, while preserving interoperability.”

The first Wi-Fi CERTIFIED ac products to support new features and which comprise the test bed for interoperability certification are:

Broadcom BCM94709R4366AC
Marvell Avastar 88W8964
MediaTek MT7615 AP Reference Design and MT6632 STA Reference Design
Qualcomm IPQ8065 802.11ac 4-stream Dual-band, Dual-concurrent Router
Quantenna QSR1000 4x4 802.11ac Wave 2 Chipset Family

How is the wifi coverage?

Have bad experience with Asus's high end router (AC87u, AC88U) with poor wifi coverage.

Both have good throughput speed but lack of wifi signal Coverage.

If both 87U and 88U give you bad coverage, chances are this router will too. Your house either too many walls, too big or over crowded with other wifi signals.

Don't blame router, see where you put your router, what channels are you using and how many wifi signal around you then you start to blame lol

This router is rather expensive considering it's using the same cpu and wifi radio as the Netgear AC2600. Shouldn't they have gone with the IPQ8069 since it's advertised as a "business" router? And the Netgear supports DFS channels, so come on Asus.

$200 more for dual WAN, 8 LAN ports and a M.2 slot. How expensive can a couple of GbE switches be now a days.

I cannot even use FTP or file sharing. Hard reset the router but still get greyout settings. Maybe Synology is a better choice for dual WAN.

It's shouldn't be the case, Samba/FTP Sharing is working as intended.

Samba Share



FTP Share



Is your USB hard disk/SSD properly formatted and access rights done? R/W done? Map your drive properly?

Please provide more details of your setup, so i can get ASUS TW to have a look.

All correct. Can enable if I use the Asus app. No pop up at all.
