Even without external antennas Asus as somehow manage to make it look ridiculous...

What's with router manufacturers these days. it seems the more you pay for the router the more stupid looking it gets...
I like the designs of those Aztech Singtel routers, simple and nice, fit to any types of furniture. After switching to Asus, those incredible antennas eyesore sometimes. The signal strength is almost the same as aztech singtel routers, hence I think those external antennas are a marketing gimmick.

external antennas means naught due to regulations regarding WiFi output.

I have a friend switch from the Asus Ac5300 ( spider looking thing with 8 external antennas) to a unif AP AC LR (no external antennas) and got slightly better range.

Most devices that use WiFI have low powered antennas, so no matter how powerful the router is if your device may not be able to broadcast back.

Thanks. understand, the wifi indicator on my laptop and phone from the furthest part of the house is hugely different, laptop wii=fi is quite strong.

Don't see any significant difference. Just a minor upgrade

Is the latest ASUS OEM or Merlin firmware more stable?

Shifted to my new house recently and unable to hit 800-900mbps on lan connection.

Direct connection to ONT can get full speed, but if pass through RT AC3200 only can hit 400-500mbps. Tried changing LAN cable between ONT>ROUTER still same issue. Tried both Merlin 384.5 and 384.6 firmware both still same issue. Any solution ?

Can't connect after upgrade to 1GBps

I just moved to a new home and was upgraded from my previous 500MB plan to 1GBps. I received a new ONR and the new Singtel AC Plus (Arcadyan) router. This works decently, but of course I want my Asus AC3200 back.

But the AC3200 doesn't connect, I only get a red LED. I tried both my previous setting "Singtel-other" and "None", but no connection.

Does anyone know how to setup the AC3200 in order to get it to connect to the Singtel network ?

Should I try the old ONR ? I still have it.
