If that the case, will you suggest to swap it around? RT-1200G+ as main router then the AC66U as AP?

You need to check your ac66U HW version, if its A1, then can try out the 1200G+ as main router. If its B1, then it should be faster than 1200G+, so you might want to upgrade firmware, reset everything and start configuring again.

Okay let me check.. my firmware is using the merlin one. May I tried to reflash it with the latest firmware from Asus to try out since it has been sometimes back. As for the 5Ghz, my current setting 40Mhz with 36 as its channel due to I am the only one using this. Thanks.

Verified mine is the RT-66U A1 model. I did a reflash to the latest firmware from ASUS website. There is an improvement over the 5GhZ wifi connection, now can get up to 300mbps vs previously max at 200mpbs. :s12:

That's good to hear :). I also don't use merlin firmware, this firmware is for those power users that want to overclock cpu/ram and monitoring the temp etc (plus adding fan to its back etc). I think I saw somewhere that if not configure properly, the internet/link speed will actually be worse than stock firmware (probably due to thermal throttling I guess).

You can try the 1200G+ as main router and see whether the 5Ghz will improve.

Not sure where you read about needing to setup differently from stock 🤔

I believe its either the NAS or AC66U, but unfortunately I don't have NAS to play around, so, can't comment further. Sorry :)

Its likely due to the cpu capability of the router that restricts the speed.
