What do you want to achieve ?
Fail over, load balance or aggregated wan. Afaik, all 3 are supported.
i want to do wan aggregation, cool.
would AC828 be better or getting a pfsense box better?

There is a review here showing that the AC828 can do 2gbps with link aggregation. However enabling certain features that disable hardware offloading will reduce the speed to below 1gbps.

yes i saw that it can do 2gbps with link aggregation however it is on the VQ 2gbps Multi network which is connect from ONT to mikrotik router to AC828, however My republic is on 2gbps is from the ONT to 2 different router.
Please correct me if i am wrong, i tried to see back the link for VQ multinetwork which is no longer available in VQ they only have single network.

I saw that yesterday, it was the AIprotection feature that cause it to drop below 1gbps.

The ac828 has only gigabit ports so the only way it's getting above gigabit speeds is with 2 connections. If myrepublic ONT splits the 2gbps network into 2, the ac828 should be able to handle.

From ONT -> myrepublic modem(https://www.google.com.sg/search?q=m...YzbjuazfNBhYM:) -> Lan1 and Lan2 port goes to 2 different router.

it should work right?

Finally a new firmware for AC828.

BRT-AC828_3.0.0.4_380_7432-ga3a7277_201803221855_fbwifi

BUT!!! Anyone can confirm if this bug is there.

Disable UPnp Services.
Go AISecurity - Check Router Security
The UPnP Services Disabled still show NO.

Got the ASUS TW's go ahead to reveal the official specs ....

This is the first ASUS networking router based on QCA (QualComm Atheros) latest networking solutions.

~ Specs as follows ~

1). CPU ~ QCA IPQ8065 1.7GHz dual core Krait 300 CPU
2). WiFi ~ 2x QCA9984 4X4:4 Wave2 MU-MIMO 160MHz for both 2.4GHz and 5GHz (80MHz+80MHz)
(Specs is ready but 160 drivers are not ready yet)
3). LAN Switch ~ (LAN:1 x RLT8370MB + WAN: 2 x QCA8033)
4). Fully hardware NAT dual WAN for Internet speeds up to 2Gbps with 8x real backbone GbE LAN ports (Realtek RTL8370MB 8 ports) with 2x set of bonding ports



5). Dedicated QCA HW AES/3DES/SHA crypto accelerator engine.
6). 128MB Flash
7). 512MB DDR3 RAM
8). 2 x USB 3.0 (with eject button)
9). Support Failover, Teaming (aggregation) on SLA (Static Link Aggregation), 802.3ad Aggregation
10). Support SATA/AHCI M.2 SSD up to the current biggest 500GB size available in the market - Samsung Evo 850 500GB M.2 SSD (Do note - M.2 NVME based SSD are not supported)



Just to illustrate why is this ASUS BRT-AC828M2 is fully dual WAN 1Gbps capable up to 2Gbps and hardware NAT router.

One picture is worth more than a thousand words



Do note the SpeedTest is to show that this ASUS BRT-AC828M2 is more capable to achieve this kind of performance rating with ease and fully NAT HW accelerated barely with any CPU loading.

All the other aspects of the performance indicators (WiFi, OpenVPN, IPSec, USB3.0, M.2 SSD etc) are still in embargo @ ASUS TW discretion.

Lastly, many thanks to ViewQwest and ASUS TW's BRT-AC828M2 team for allowing me to contribute to this particular collaboration.
This router has been released for quite a while, is the 160mhz ready yet? Nowadays intel 9260/9560 adapter for the laptops supports the 160mhz already.
