Hi square, the firmware loaded in your router as factory loaded firmware requires you to downgrade switch control to LEVEL 1 CTF as mentioned by Asus@SG.

My suggestion is to use your old router, get online and download the latest firmware .2678 from asus support site, or from a link in this thread which maylyn has posted.

Once u have extracted the firmware on your desktop, replace your ac87u again and then try to access the GUI at 192.168.1.1

You should be able to access the network map. Once u r there, on top of the page displays the firmware version, click it and it brings you to anither page for u to upload the new firmware you just downloaded.

Once everything is done, use the reset button on the router, press it for 5 seconds then release. Router is kinda retarded, but assured that it will reboot itself after a few seconds of releasing the button.

Now after you reset, everything goes back to default values and with the new 2678, LEVEL 2 CTF is still enabled by default but is now compatible with singtel fibre..

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
According to SNB gurus, they concur with linksys's user manual stating that if u need coverage on diff levels, ur antenna should face 45 degrees for the sides. If you have only 1 level, then all should be vertical upright.

Someone used the donut analogy for signal coverage. Therefore now it makes sense for vertical position on 1 level coverage and 45 degrees for multiple stories coverage..

The documentation by asus did not explain by the 45 degrees placement, i guess they wanna simplify for everyone so that it helps the people using it for multiple stories too..

If we have multiple ASUS routers, does that mean we have multiple AICloud accounts?
