Goodbye stock Vodafone/Chorus Router Hubs - Hello RT-AX86U

First time getting a router outside of those provided by ISPs Chorus/Vodafone. I'm impressed!

Pros
- No drop in wifi signal/connectivity with multiple users in the house (3-4 bedroom single storey)
- Variety of gaming settings/customisation via their ASUS landing page
- Aesthetically looks good - and works well within other computer peripherals (sleek finish siting on desktop)

Cons
- Initial setup out of box isn't as straight forward when following Asus guide. However PBtech have a great Asus guide on what settings are required.
- Strictly vertically standing (not a big deal for me)

I did a quick unboxing here for more info: htt...view more

I finally understand the mesh router hype

On the recent failure of an older Asus Router that had been an access point, I was able to install this ASUS RT-AX86U connected to my 950Gbs fibre as the primary router and mesh link via ethernet to a slightly older DSL-AC68U on the other side of the house. Costly, but I think the performance suggests it is a worthwhile investment

Magic transformation of our web access. No longer do I have 2.5 and 5GHz downstairs and upstairs wifi locations. I have one name for the whole wifi system, and the mesh system resolves the best wifi router and GHz to connect at.

It took longer to unbox the pieces than to connect everything. Figuring the few...view more

One Router to Rule them all...

Subject says it all...this is arguably the best overall router on the market. Range is excellent and don't be fooled that you need it's bigger brother the RT-AX88U. The latency and bandwidth performance actually edges that model out. Yes, you have fewer gigabit ports, but the 2.5gbe port is a bonus. Also, you can run the Asus Merlin variant of the firmware on this model (which I highly recommend).

Unleash your broadband speeds

This devices ticks all the boxes except for one -- the much touted AiMesh did not work with my RT AX-58U and I gave up subsequently opted for a wired backhaul option but this necessitated getting a switch given my home office set up. I also tried upgrading to the Merlin-basead firmwares but to no avail. ASUS support was also not very helpful. But, why still 4 stars? This device works well enough on its own so just reflecting it in this review. I'm still working through all the other features of this product and other than the AiMesh, I have not been disappointed.

The RE-AX86U does the job really well

Nice powerful router. This was my fourth attempt to connect a router after upgrading to a maximum speed fibre service. We get good coverage now throughout our 240sq metre home now which never happened previously. It was a little tricky to set up initially as I had to specify a fibre supplier in one of the menus but once this was in place, off it went. The mobile app isn't too bad either, or you can just connect directly to the router itself and do your setup there. Annoyingly I saw the router at PBTech at a discounted price a week or so after I purchased it so I could have saved a decent few bucks but I am still happy because the router...view more

Great Router - WIFI 6 is fast no need for ethernet now.

I have been watching the reviews etc. for this router for sometime and it has lived up to expectations. Easier enough to setup even though we have set it up on an static connection connecting to the existing Vodafone gateway router. We have been using it for over a month now no problems so far.
2.5 g to the NAS great.
Connecting to our switch - Security cameras etc.
1 g to the Laptop although will upgrade the laptop to WIFI 6 should be just as fast.
WIFI 6 coverage around the house excellent - connecting on 5 ghz all over - very fast up to 1 g. (who needs ethernet)
Definitely worth the upgrade would recommend - like other reviews have.

RT-AX86U is designed to break down all the barriers that can slow down your gaming. It supports up to a 2 Gbps internet connection, so you can unlock the full potential of high-speed networking for both wired and WiFi connections.

 

Remove Network Bottlenecks

Adaptive QoS (Quality of Service) lets you keep your network running smoothly by prioritizing network traffic. You can prioritize applications such as streaming video or web surfing, as well as gaming. It's the perfect ally for delivering low-latency WiFi anywhere in your home.

 

Whole-Home Gaming

Does your router leave you with WiFi dead spots? RT-AX86U supports ASUS AiMesh, a unique mesh-networking technology that creates a whole-home network using multiple ASUS routers. With easy central control and seamless roaming, even non-experts can set it up with any AiMesh-capable routers you own. Say goodbye to WiFi dead zones!

 

Commercial-grade Security for Your Home

Home network security is crucial when you have multiple connected devices, and even more so when there are devices without anti-virus capabilities such as IoT devices. RT-AX86U includes lifetime free AiProtection Pro, including the latest WPA3 security protocol and advanced Parental Controls. Every device is protected with RT-AX86U, and you can keep an eye on everything that's happening on your network via the handy mobile app.

Disclaimer:

* Actual data throughput and WiFi coverage will vary from network conditions and environmental factors, including the volume of network traffic, building material and construction, and network overhead, result in lower actual data throughput and wireless coverage.
** To benefit from WiFi 6 features, the WiFi client needs to be WiFi 6 capable.
*** The number of speed is calculated with data rate of 2.4 GHz band and of 5 GHz band, which are respectively 861 and 4804 Mbps. And the DFS channels may not be supported in some countries due to local regulations.
