that cheap.. order thru their website? maybe thinking of getting 1 set also . orginal AC87U antenna very weak.

Please give feedback/review after you guys tested it. If good may get a set too. BTW, it came in a set of 3 antennas only? Looks weird with 3 long & 1 short :s13:

guards80, yup direct from their website as their shipping pretty reasonable.

oric1, I ordered one extra set to make it 4 antennas for AC87. Extra pc just keep it, who knows I got use for it one day.

At this juncture, no need worry about stocks level. Can comfortably locate in most SLS shops, like PCT, CM, Fuwell.

The default is 100 u set to 1? i set to 50 and there is improvement in speed. I read there would be higher power consumption. so set to 1 :s22:

No problem with 5ghz. 5ghz takes longer time to show up than 2.4ghz after a reboot thats all..

with an extra antenna comparing to ac66u, yes coverage is wider technically.

realistically in your situation, who can tell you for sure?

Yeah. I think with the AC-87U, Asus has indeed come a long way. I remember my first N-56....

just realized a bug in media bridge mode..

there is one Asus SSID that seems to be unsecured. What is the preferred order of setting up the 2nd AC87U? I think I did this:
- Firmware reset
- Set 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz password
- then switch to Media bridge
