Won't the vertical antennae create interference among each other?

Dear Dr_ARCHer,

No, because they always talk to each other side by side

Best regard,

But you look at say your .sig pictures. The 3-antennae routers are always shown as \ | / rather than | | |.

But in the ASUS Quick Start Guide, it says "To ensure the best wireless signal, orient the four detachable antennas as shown in the drawing below:".... which is \ | | /

5Ghz LED Light

Does anybody have this problem of the 5Ghz LED light constantly going off and back on again (in less than a split second)?

I tried all the factory firmwares and even with Merlin's build but still blinking

Is my set faulty or is it a bug? Will it affect my 5Ghz performance? Thanks.

You are correct...hmm...

in AC87U manual, it actually recommends \ | | /, at angle 45, 90, 90, 45.

I going to try out to see if my link speed improve..

Edit: No difference...link speed still 1170

Thanks Simon for assuring that I'm not alone or having a faulty set

Yes, ithe 5Ghz blinks but the 2.4Ghz didn't and both lights on my N66U didn't blink either.

I have the same problem, bought the RT-AC87U on 1st day, I have 2 Internet at home, one using Dynamic IP (SH) and another using Static IP (MR).

I think the WAN port is bad. I can get to the Router Console wirelessly but no Internet, tried configuring both Static and Dynamic and they both won't work. I didn't upgrade the FW thought I'd better get it to work 1st before I do that.

When I saw your post, makes me think that we both got lemon. I revert back using TP Link (Dynamic IP Internet) and ASUS RT-N66U (Static IP Internet) and they are running fine.

Now the problem is how do I get a replacement??

See no difference

So you can put \ | | / or l l l l

Please do not put like this /ll\ <<< Wrong position, you shouldn't even try to build a castle.
