    I’ve been in the IT field for over 20 years. I’ve setup more routers than I can count. I’ve been a ASUS product user for many years now and have had little problems. That all said, he’s what you need to know about this router.1) First thing you must do is update the firmware. It’s more important than you think.2) Once fully updated, manually set it up. It’s not hard, so don’t feel intimidated. Setup is very easy and the only difficult decision can be what name to make the SSID and whether you want it broadcasted or not.3) Next, power up everything in this sequence. First, reboot your modem. And wait for it to come online. Second, power up the router. The router needs the public IP to get online. This address is displayed on the dashboard page of the router as the WAN address. It’ll also tell you if you’re online.4) Reboot any device connecting to the router. Not every device will need a reboot, but it’s good practice.Some caveats:- depending on the vendor, smart plugs may need unplugged then plugged in again. Assuming your SSID remained the same from the previous router, the plugs should come online. If the SSID has changed, you’ll need to rerun the plug specific setup again.- I have 3 Alexas and 2 of them connected to the router without any problems. But one needed to be reset.Last thing you should do is backup your router configuration and save them somewhere safe.

    TLDR:The AX92U had the best (lowest) latency of the 3. :)RESULTS:Both the AX92U and RT-AX82U can handle 2 Quest 2 headsets just fine.What was very odd is that Both handled a single headset slightly worse than the AX1500, while they can actually handle the 2 headsets while the AX1500 shat itself with 90-100+ latency.All 3 routers, just running Virtual Desktop = 22ms latencyBeing in Steam VR with theAX1500 = 28-32ms latenancyAX82U = 28-38ms latenancyAX92U = 28-30ms latenancyPlaying a game with Steam VRAX1500 = 35-38ms latencyAX82U = 38ms latency (never wavered)AX92U = 34ms-38ms latenancyPlaying games with 2 headsetsAX1500headset #1 90 – 100+ms latenancyheadset #2 90 – 100+ms latenancyAX82Uheadset #1 38ms – 41ms latenancyheadset #2 41ms – 43ms latenancyAX92Uheadset #1 34ms – 41ms latenancyheadset #2 38ms -41ms latenancyMind you the AX92U is tri-band, with 1 AC 5ghz, 1 AX5ghz, and 1 2.6ghz band. In my tests, headset #2 used the AC 5ghz while Headset #1 used the AX 5ghz.While the AX82U was just 1 AX 5ghz and a 2.6ghz band, both headsets were on the 5Ghz with the low latency gamer boost thingy turned on.Very surprising AX1500 single headset performance was so good compared to the more expensive models, too bad it can’t handle 2 headsets, but games are perfectly playable on the AX92U and 82U, though we are keeping the 92U, because it was slightly cheaper than the 82u and had slightly better performance.

    We upgraded from a Netgear R6300v2 to the ASUS RT-AC86U Dual Band Wireless Router AC2900 about 10 days ago so this review is still ongoing.Initial Impressions:The Asus RT-AC86U is able to handle multiple wireless clients much more efficiently. I work from home several days a week and bandwith was strangely an issue with a 50MB connection from my ISP. The Netgear R6300v2 had trouble handling something as simple as playing Amazon Music on my desktop computer while talking on the phone via my employers VPN using a work laptop. The phone call quality would suffer (drop outs, stuttering, etc…)With the new Asus router we are able to stream Amazon Music on my desktop and Netflix (1080P) / Amazon Video / Hulu on a Roku Streaming Stick+ with no impact to the phone quality over the VPN. The location of the router did not change and the location of the desktop / Roku Streaming Stick+ and work laptop did not change.Wireless Devices:1 Desktop (Netgear Wireless AC 1900 USB 3.0)1 TV (Roku Streaming Stick+) and Dish Hopper 32 Laptops2 Mobile Phones2 TabletsNone of the devices have suffered any dropouts at this time. I have the latest firmware installed and the Dual Band Smart Connect enabled. Ai Protection Enabled, QoS Enabled with VoIP and Instant Messaging setup as the highest priority with Video and Audio Streaming in second.Range: The wireless range of the previous router was pretty decent. I haven’t run any speed tests between the two but I can confirm wireless signal went from 3 bars to 5 bars at the far end of our 2,400 sqft house. The router is not in an ideal location (almost against the wall on the opposite end of the house in the basement) so I figured the simple addition of directional antenee on the router would solve that issue.If I experience any odd issues in the next few weeks I’ll update the review. So far I am extremely happy with the new router.

    Being a tech guy and the owner of a small computer company I absolutely recommend this router to everyone. This have not only a super easy setup, great features, built in Virus/Malware protection but the ability to run as a mesh system to. So if you have a large property or big building you can link these units together and have complete coverage and only one SSID. These unit have been rock solid and continue to receive frequent firmware updates direct from ASUS. This router is for everyone from the novice who knows literally nothing about computers to the absolute computer enthusiast. I have installed more then 35 of these units and from single units to 3 in mesh network and they work like you want them to. No buggy software or weird twerks. Asus finally got it right. I will take this router over anything on the market currently.

    Reliable. Less than 24 hours of experience, but already better than the network I had been using.: I replaced a Netgear R7000 and an EX7000. Reserved IP addresses setup had stopped working on the R7000 and the EX7000 required rebooting regularly.Easy setup: The web interface for the AIMesh system is self explanatory enough to get everything up and running quickly. Replaced the router with one Asus unit, then after setting both up, I replaced the range extender with the other. My concern about the distance and obstructions between the router and range extender were my reasons for getting an AX mesh system, with external antennas, versus an AC mesh. At present, the backhaul between the two units is the only thing using AX WiFi and appears to be worth the extra cost over an AC system. I was trying to delay replacing my network for WPA3, and the final AX spec release. Glad I have this now.

    This router has impressed me. Before hand I was using a Linksys WRT32X which is similar to the Linksys 3200ACM. I would run my whole network through a VPN (ExpressVPN) to be exact. It would bogg down my network speed to 50mbps up and down. This Asus GT-AC2900 can run my VPN at 220mps down and 180mbps up without a problem through OpenVPN. In the past I’ve used L2TP encrycrption on a TP-link 3200 archer and was able to achieve 100mbps but that router died. Using VPNfusion I am able to select individual devices to run directly from my ISP and the surprising thing to me is how flawlessly it performs. I have about 10- 19 devices running at any given time. I configured the router to send every connection through a openVPN tunnel. So any device that enters my network is protected but I manually selected 3 desktops we use for gaming to go through our basic internet for lowest ping times and fastest download and upload speeds. I experienced some issues visiting websites like Amazon through the connections I made exceptions for and had to manually configure a DNS for each to solve the problem, that seems to be my ISP’s fault. My full connection speed from my ISP is 500mbps up and down and on the connections outside of the VPN I am getting the full bandwidth of my connection. The dual core processor should be more than enough horse power for anyone I assume. I also understand OpenVPN is a single threaded application and I’m sure that plays a huge part in why it runs so well, since one core is free to do the other tasks. I’ve currently only had the router for a few days so time will tell how it holds up but so far it’s been great. Anyone looking to use the Game Boost features though alongside a VPN might run into problems though. When I had to tried to run it through my nonVPN connections it caused my VPN connections to disconnect and run through my native internet which wasn’t ideal. WTFast seemed to work I didn’t get an improvement in ping times from it though and it only supports one device on your network at a time. I took a risk going with this router over the Asus 86u since I couldn’t find out any information about it’s VPN performance. The Asus 86u is a very similar router but it has a 32bit 1.8ghz processor this one is a 64bit 1.8ghz processor and as far as I know the Asus 86u doesn’t have VPNfusion allowing you to run multiple connection types at once. Some details on VPNfusion I would like to share I figure someone might want to know. You can run up to 4 protocols at once and it works with OpenVPN, L2TP, and PPTP in client mode. You can also store up to 16 configurations (different servers) I’ve only used OpenVPN though. It also have VPN server functionality for PPTP, OpenVPN and IPSec VPN. Lastly in terms of ping times I had a significant reduction going from the Linksys WRT32X to this Asus GT AC-2900 in Fortnite my ping would be around 36-32 on my closest server and now sits around 22-14 I also play on a further server to play with friends on the other side of the world and used to get 100ping there and now I get 75-65. In Modern Warfare I dropped by about 15-20 there as well. I hope this helps someone, I would have liked to have this information myself previous to buying but I’m so glad I took my chance with it!

    There are many reviews regarding the RT-AX92U routers that have a lot of either dis- or mis-information, so I’d like to clarify things with this review.First of all, I’ve been dealing with networking of all sorts for several years — even have a degree in this stuff (though, presently, I’m in the world of quality assurance, so I really do understand what it means to not only break things but also why something is breaking). This doesn’t mean I know it all, but it does mean I’m pretty familiar with the intent behind much of the tech being dealt with here.Next, the hardware itself is at least to the caliber of pro-sumer with this product — it appears to fit somewhere on the high end of consumer and very low end of professional. Admittedly, I had been skeptical that something the size of one of these routers could really pull off any sort of practical, whole-home WiFi, but that’s exactly what it does. In fact, the only downside to these routers that I’ve found is they do get pretty warm as they work, but that’s why they’re designed the way they are — with enough venting to keep the devices from locking up (and after having ran them for several weeks, they’re still doing quite well).Out of the box, you’re going to have to update the firmware on these devices. It’s as simple as that if you want the latest in bug fixes and security to be applied. Fortunately, ASUS makes this a pretty simple process if you know how to navigate their UI (which, by the way, is a pretty nice UI, though it won’t win any grammar awards, hence my four star rating on that aspect).Further, on the UI part, since this really is more of a pro-sumer product, if you don’t already understand the differences between 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz networks and which standards of the IEEE 802.11 apply to which band, you’ll likely want someone you trust to go through and really help you set this thing up. Granted, the “intro wizard” (as I call it) will get you through the very basics of setup when first turning on or resetting the router, you’ll really want to know what you’re doing if you want to expand/customize the system to your own liking. I prefer to follow along with folks over at snbforums.com (where they even have forums that ASUS employees frequent) to really get into the nitty-gritty of settings.However, in the interest of those of you who are trying to decide which is the best router for the money, I’ll let you know in the following paragraphs, because you likely are wanting a setup similar to how I’ve set my own pair up.Our setting? A 4k-square-foot house across two floors. Plenty of walls that really attenuated (broke down) the signal of the previous mesh system we used that I tested from at least 5 years ago (Linksys Velop). They were good for a while, but after we moved into our present house, even with gigabit fiber Internet to the house, they couldn’t keep up with internal demands. So, it was time for me to look.I set up the first router pretty much straight out of the box with little customizing (as much as I just went on about it, it’s nice to know they’re highly configurable). We’re choosing to keep one SSID for all three bands. However, on attempting to set up the second router as an AIMesh system, that’s where personal preferences had me back off. It isn’t that the mesh topology doesn’t work; it’s because I would have had to use the second 5Ghz band (the band used for 802.11ax, the latest wireless standard) as both backhaul (direct communications between both routers) as well as a separate SSID for devices like our iPhone 11 devices that take advantage of the AX standard. Further, while it is true that you can set up a wired Ethernet connection between the two, there’s currently no way to “make” the routers use this as main backhaul and completely “let go” of the 5Ghz band. Some folks might not care about that, but single SSID convenience was better for us.Also, even with a singular router, we were able to get twice as much coverage as we had with our previous mesh system, so even if we had to stick with one router, that would have been more than sufficient for multiple Apple devices, such as phones, TVs, watches, a few IoT (Internet of Things) devices, computers, etc., and not a blip of buffering anywhere.After performing some searches on the aforementioned snbforums.com, there was another alternative whereby the second router could be set up for AP (Access Point) mode. Since I wanted to use Ethernet backhaul exclusively for router-to-router communications, I thought I’d give this a shot. This setup allows your primary router to handle all administrative functions (more on that shortly) while the second AP node essentially handles device (or “clients,” as they’re called in networking) WiFi needs from a “roaming” perspective.Regarding Ethernet backhaul, I chose to use our unused coaxial cable outlets to make this happen. I used two Ethernet over Coax (MoCA 2.0) adapters from Actiontec (they work flawlessly) in order to then connect CAT5e cabling between the adapters and the LAN port on the main router to the WAN port on the AP router (important to plug into the right ports). After setting all of this up, we are now more than fully blanketed with WiFi throughout our house, and even have excellent 2.4Ghz range outside on our driveway for when we watch movies outside under the stars :)An important note to customize the AP setup between both of these routers. If you click on the Professional tab in the UI, make sure that you disable roaming (there’s a specific setting for this) under each of the radios that you’re using (all three bands in our case). While this might sound unintuitive, the truth is that ASUS has integrated the standards 802.11k/v/r (roaming standards) into the router, and I have to say — roaming is flawless with our “clients!”The included AiProtection Pro is great for us — has already protected from a potential attack or two. This is an anti-virus/intrusion service provided by Trend Micro for free for the life of the product. Also, baked in is parental controls, which we absolutely love and work well.Also, the QoS (Quality of Service) functionality is great. If you ever have “that” much traffic on your network, ASUS allows you to set either categories of traffic type (such as for work from home, learning, gaming, etc.) that it can prioritize, and/or you can also assign specific devices on a scale of who would get the available bandwidth first. Again, after monitoring our own network traffic when we go full-tilt (even at gigabit Internet speeds), we’ve never come close to really maxing this out. This also includes a security system with cameras and that barely puts a dent into our usage.Speaking of which, how’s the Internet coming into the router? Typically we’re reaching speeds of ~800Mbps which, for a gigabit WAN port, is what you’d expect (we use the router as a PPPoE modem as well, so there are no intervening devices to our service provider).There’s a lot more functionality that’s available with this device, but the above can get you more than going for whatever your needs are. For those who have had major issues with the device, I’d suggest that (1) they might be “astro-turfing” for competing products; (2) didn’t plug the right cables in the right ports; (3) haven’t properly customized their own settings; (4) haven’t properly updated to the latest firmware; and/or (5) could have a legitimate hardware issue (as good as ASUS is, they’re not perfect).I would not hesitate to recommend this set to anyone looking for a router that should cover your needs for the next five years. And the great thing is that if you’re willing to learn, ASUS has a fantastic array of features that you can learn about as you’re using the router. Just make sure you back up your settings before making changes (which can be done over PC, Mac or mobile device).

    I thought I had reviewed this router some time ago, but apparently I forgot to do it. I bought one in December 2017 and one in March, 2018. Both are being used and are set up in my two-story, 3100 sq-ft house, in router+AP mode to provide high strength 5 GHz coverage for the entire house. I’m not using AiMesh mode and haven’t tried it. These have been great routers for my needs. Fast, inexpensive, reliable.I started with just one RT-AC86U that replaced my RT-AC3100 that had replaced my RT-AC68U, and I found that, overall, RT-AC86U provided better range and speed for both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands than either of those two routers for multiple types of devices (Mac laptop, Android phone, iPad). I did a fairly extensive set of tests that can be found on the SNB forums. I was able to connect in the far bedrooms on the 2.4 GHz band with just a single router and had no problem doing typical internet surfing, but while the connection strength and speed was better than the two previous routers, it still wasn’t what I wanted.After doing a fair bit of reading, I realized that no single router would provide the 5 GHz coverage that I wanted in the far bedrooms, so I bought a second RT-AC86U, and set it up in AP mode at a location suitable to provide good signal strength in the far bedrooms. Running in main+AP mode requires a dedicated ethernet connection between the two routers. Running this cable is easy for some, but not others. AiMesh is an option for those who don’t have the option of running an ethernet cable. For the main AC86U, I have both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz radios enabled, and the satellite AC86U has only the 5 GHz radio enabled. I did this because the 2.4 GHz band on the main AC86U does sufficiently cover the entire house.This dual router setup has been 100% reliable since the day I set it up. My router settings are fairly simple. No attached storage because I have a dedicated NAS. I have several ports on my “server” computer forwarded. The VPN server on the router is enabled, and I use it routinely without issue. Most of the other bells and whistles are disabled. I’m not using traffic monitoring, nor am I using AiProtection. No gamers on my network. I have a typical range of devices connecting – several computers, several phones, security cameras, NAS, printer. All work without issue. WiFi speeds with a strong signal are as good as can be expected. My MacBookPro with 3×3 5 GHz consistently has a 1300 mbps link speed in the vicinity of either router, and transfers to/from my server computer from this laptop go at 70 MB/s. LAN speeds over ethernet are quite fast. If I set up jumbo frames, I can saturate the 1GB/s ethernet between my server computer and NAS in both read and write mode. Its a bit slower with a standard MTU.I will say that obtaining good hand-off between the two AC86Us as people move from location to location in the house took a bit of tuning. I had to enable the Roaming Assistant option on the main AC86U to kick devices off it when the 5 GHz signal strength falls below -66 dBm. Something like this has to be done because most devices don’t readily disconnect from one access point until signal strength is in the pits, even when there is another high strength access point in the vicinity.To summarize again, this is a great, inexpensive, high performance router in my experience.04/05/2020 UPDATEI’m puzzled by the nearly 20% 1-star reviews because I now have four of these in service, two at my house and two at my cabin (large property), and all of them work perfectly. Either I’ve been really lucky with all four, or there is something about the settings and/or other equipment for some people that is causing issues.07/21/2021 UPDATEMy four RT-AC86Us continue to work flawlessly. Performance and functionality of the devices continue to improve as ASUS and Merlin continue to improve the firmware for this router and other ASUS routers. At the current price of $150, this is an outstanding router to have even considering that AX (WIFI 6) routers are now available. IMHO, WIFI 6 is a bit of a gimmick. 98% of people will not benefit from WIFI 6 even if your laptop/phone/tablet are WIFI 6. There just aren’t many needs for that kind of speed, and the reality is that the half-duplex nature of all wifi along with the additional error checking result in a data transmission latency that reduces the value of a very high speed wifi protocol.

    I bought this after a thunderstorm took out several electronics, including my ASUS router witch was connected to a surge protector. I saw many bad reviews but bought it anyways. There will always be bad reviews on stuff on Amazon.I was able to get back online within 2-3 minutes after logging in to the routers administrative web interface. It was too easy if you ask me.On 5G wifi I get 435 Mbps download speed which is insane. I am on a 400 Mbps cable connection.I have not had any issues with the 2.4 wifi dropping nor the 5G. Some people reported that this router getss too hot and drops wifi connections. I did read up on that and people are installing a $15 dual usb powered fans to cool down the router to fix that.I bought the extra warrany for a few bux that Amazon offered for cheap insurance. Now I just need to get a surge protector that has coax and ethernet protection.*** 1 week update, no issues to report. ****** 9 week update, still no issues to report!****** 6 month update, running perfectly!****** 18 month update, still running perfectly!***

    I have the 200 mbps Spectrum service which actually tests out to 225 mbps or so with ethernet cable connection. My home is 1800 s.f with 1600 s.f on the first floor. My old 5 year old Motorola combo modem/router wasn’t giving me great coverage. A few days before purchasing the Asus I purchased a Netgear 1750, 6700 router which provided decent wifi coverage especially for the much lower price than this Asus RT-AC86U. Unfortunately, I got a bad Netgear unit as it dropped the modem signal frequently so I returned it to Amazon shortly after I bought it. Decided to go with a different brand and greater coverage and hence the Asus purchase at twice the cost.I did make it a point to test both the Netgear (before returning it) and the Asus on both 2.4 ghz and 5 ghz at various locations in my home to compare coverage. My findings were that the Asus provided stronger 5 ghz coverage in every instance. The 2.4 ghz coverage wasn’t all that much better than the Netgear. As speed varies during the day, I made my measurements in the afternoon and took the average of 2 speed tests. I found that I could average about 200 mbps on 5 ghz about 35′ from my router (which is in a different room with the door open). 2.4 ghz averaged about 50 mbps in the same location. The tests were with just my Samsung tablet…no other devices streaming. Most devices these days can operate on both 2.4 ghz and 5 ghz. Of my 9 devices only 2, a Roku and a 2017 Samsung TV could only work on 2.4 ghz.I did have an issue setting up the router following the quick connect directions. I had a red light showing up for the WAN connection from the router. Changed out the cable to modem but no difference. Called the customer service number which was immediately answered. I was walked through the procedure to get the unit running in less than 5 minutes. My only issue was the representative had a fairly heavy accent (assume overseas location of Asus service reps) so I needed to have her repeat the instructions.Bottom line I’m glad I spent the extra money for the ASUS.
