Now I yaya papaya go Router settings play play toggle HE frame.....
My 1200mpbs rate GONE !!!!!


Initially after firmware update so shiok in room 648mpbs link rate, Living room 1200mpbs link rate.

Then itchy hand go toggle the HE frame.... poof !!!!! WIFI6 gone and link rate back to 286... Now enable back HE frame but my speed still stuck at 286 !!!!!! :mad: duno why my wow oooo wee speed gone liao ! 气死人 !!!!

Actually the link rate also not accurate one ma.

I always see my devices with 866 link rate but when I do speed test also 200+ mbps.

I also dunno why for some reason during speed tests, when I choose m1 server I will get nice speed (>500) but other server will be just 200+-

that's the thing. i'm on starhub. even my own starhub server gave me 200+ mbps.

only M1 server gave me the highest dl/ul speed consistently (from my multiple observations over quite some time). it's always double the speed of other servers.

makes me wonder if m1 fibre is better. :o

you peeps who buy this router don't stay with parents or spouse one? It literally looks like an eyesore.

AC2 04-04-2019 09:45 AM

No leh, same look at RT AC88U. Anyway just a router why u so mind the look? I left it one side dont even bother if its there as long got connection.

ksksksks 04-04-2019 09:56 AM

Think only m1 won’t throttle speed, Singtel at best 500mbps. M1 easily touches 600-68x

My RT-AX88U cannot be powered on after less than 5 months. Expected better from a premium product. :(

My Netgear r6300 v1 is still working after 7 years!!! :(

What? It has same issue as RT-AC86U? Asus build quality drops lately? :eek:

Still within warranty. Send in for “servicing” ;)

Firmware needs improvement
 
As above... i think the firmware needs further improvement.

I have 2 internet lines (Viewqwest on port 1, SIngtel on wan port, mio tv on port 4).

When i run dual wan config (fail over mode), (primary- Viewqwest, sleeping-Singtel), end up the primary internet status become unplugged and the sleeping internet status cannot get IP address.

MY RT-AC88U was working fine under this config.

Dual wan with both lines active, seems fine.
But Ai Protection will only work in fail over mode dual wan

Hi! Sorry to revive this thread (hopefully it's not dead). You're the only one in my hours of research who used Dual WAN.

I was thinking of getting this router because I have 2 ISPs (Singtel and Starhub). I was wondering if you tried aggregation. Does it work (can you even aggregate 2 different ISP)? If not, have you tried the Merlin firmware and see if fail-over mode works? Since you said your backup ISP can't get an IP address. Or has Asus released a firmware that fixed it?
