Do not believe too much in MU-MIMO technology which is not ready at all.
FYI: In case you didn't know.. If you are using a smart phone on 4G LTE network then you are using MIMO technology.

4G LTE is using MIMO technology.

iOS issue apart. Mine first detected by my Lenovo laptop running Windows 8.1 so very clearly it isn't iOS related anymore.
hi Chk98258,

Please provide your device manger on your network tab and did you install all the Microsoft update?

It is the MU and not the MIMO that is not working la…

However, today the term “MIMO” usually refers to a method for multiplying the capacity of a radio link by exploiting multipath propagation.[1] This modern MIMO is an essential element of wireless communication standards such as IEEE 802.11n (Wi-Fi), IEEE 802.11ac (Wi-Fi), 4G, 3GPP Long Term Evolution, WiMAX and HSPA+.

Hahas bro.. Have a look here: MU-MIMO

andrew is right, there is no device supporting mu-mimo at the moment. You are heading the wrong direction..

4G LTE is using MIMO technology.
You are referring to number 2 :

1. Asus RT87U AC-2400 as WIFI source and client is wireless usb adapter connected to a PC.
Which brand model support MU-MIMO and available for sale?
It does not exist until today.

2. 4G LTE as Mobile broadband source and client is mobile phone/tablet.
Which brand and model support it?

Here is explanation for number 1 :

MU-MIMO vs. XStream: The Coming Battle For Wi-Fi Airtime - Another Approach, The Choice - SmallNetBuilder

There is one more factor that will either muddy or clarify the upcoming choice between AC2350 and AC3200 routers—the (un)availability of MU-MIMO clients. MU-MIMO requires support on both router and client and requires new chipsets to support it. It's not simply a matter of releasing new firmware and drivers.
Further, the first Wi-Fi "plugfest" to check for MU-MIMO capability isn't scheduled until the end of this year and will possibly move into early 2015. And MU-MIMO Wi-Fi Certification isn't scheduled until mid-2015 and could possibly slip, too. So if product manufacturers choose to push ahead and ship MU-MIMO clients and if you choose to buy them, you'll be once again playing guinea pig and paying for the privilege.

As smart consumer should not be tricked by marketing gimmick numbers and buy it on impulse. I rather use LAN connection for time being until wireless technology and clients are in same technology else cannot enjoy max speed
So saad..

Both are different of course!

One is WIFI technology (fixed wireless connectivity) -> enjoy internet while you are staying in one place

and

one is 4G technology (mobile wireless connectivity) -> enjoy internet while you are travelling on road

for those who have disconnections on their asus87u on 5ghz,what I did was to change it from router mode to access point mode and I do not have the internet dropping issue already.

currently for new BTOs, normally people will put a gigabit router in the utility box and a better wireless router outside, for my case, its the ac87u. so when I run the ac87u in router mode, frequent drops in 5ghz...once on ap mode its ok.

but well, running on ap mode means I am not able to access the router page by the normal way through the browser.

For the Gigabit router in utility box, any suggestion what brand/model is good?

guess it doesnt matter. can be a louya wireless gigabit router because you wont be using the wireless part but the wired part, thats why you need any gigabit router. hope I am not wrong.
