If u can wait a while, Amazon usually sell at a cheaper price. 68 for example is S$100 cheaper with free shipping
Amazon selling AC87R at 279.99 with no free shipping to sg.
Approx 350 SGD if convert, haven't plus 3rd party shipping yet.

40+ for 3 years warranty is worth it. No point buying from amazon.

Some information regarding future ASUS firmwares on TX power.

It's will be the same for all networking manufacturers across the board.

See this link for the two documents that relate to this. The second document shows the type of things the FCC asks out of manufacturers now before granting certification.

https://apps.fcc.gov/oetcf/kdb/forms...39498&switch=P

One interesting bit there that relates to the use of channel 12 and 13, as an example:

So giving end user manual control of it is definitely out of the question for future products. No idea how strict they are about existing, already certified products, but in any case get used to not being able anymore to control this, as it will be the norm from now on.

That's because the AC87R is not sold directly by Amazon yet. Like i said, have to wait a while until Amazon get their stocks.

AC87R is listed and sold directly by amazon already.

Amazon.com: Buying Choices: ASUS RT-AC87R Wireless-AC2400 Dual Band Gigabit Router

This router does not qualify for FSSG or shipping out of us at the moment, so you will need a 3rd party shipper.
same as what happen when ac68u is launch, only recently ac68u can be shipped to sg.

I send wrong pricing to HWZ and correct pricing is $399 - 3 years limited warranty.

With or without headset still same price $399

Best regard,
JK

Asus RT-AC87U review by PCWorld.

Asus RT-AC87U Wi-Fi router review: This $270 802.11ac router is fast
Swee! Thats what i want AC87U for:

1. Asus
2. near 900Mbps bridge, as compared to my current 580-660Mbps bridge on AC68U pair.

the rest i trust Asus's team to crank up the firmware for AC87U, just like before.

Here i come: 28th Aug SGD798!

Hey Guys, I'm thinking of getting a new router to replace my current singtel aztech router. There's a few question i have, should i get the rt-ac68u or rt-ac87u? I'm deciding within this two. Do both of these router have the same range? Cause my wifi signal is weak and i need a router which has a very wide coverage. Thanks!
