Disable HE frame support if you don't have AX client yet.

With wifi 6, is there a need for devices like Linksys Velop for 5-room flat?

Yes disable this if you are using aimesh with ac5300.

I got this last weekend and was trying out the setting. with HE enable, my wifi speed suffered by 50%. disable and speed back to normal.

Initially I was wondering why they promised Wifi6 have better speed.
I only managed to get 200mpbs download/upload on my mobile phone on 1gb fiber plan which is same as previous AC routers.


Recently a new update and speed improved tremendously where is comparable to wired connection. I like it lol

Ax88u as router, 2 x 5300 as nodes. With HE disable, my iphone wifi speed can hit 600Mbps up 600 Mbps down on 1 Gbps plan.
If i enable HE, straight drop to less than 200Mbps.

forkie 26-03-2019 05:21 PM

Yup using Samsung S10.
Router in living room, when in master bedroom the speed range from 500-700mbps.
When in living room speed will be faster like 700-800mbps.

Eh where to find the link rate to show?

Just changed last month at the office for me bros - As one of the first Wi-Fi 6 routers, the Asus RT-AX88U is fast with tons of features but suffers from the lack of clients and high cost.
