    ASUS and Trend Micro data collectionI got an ASUS RT-AX86U recently. Little did I realize there are lot of Privacy issues going on with this router and ASUS in general. If you enable any of their AiProtection, Traffic analyzer, Apps analyzer, Adaptive QoS and web history, they are collecting a ton of data. Since their terms are very open, its hard to find what data they are limited to in collecting. If you turn off these features, its not worth the money.Asus should take the privacy more serious and explain what is being collected and not leave it others like Trend Micro to handle the data. Privacy is security in this case. You need the router to be the most reliable equipment at your home.

    There Are Issues…I’ve had the RT-AX86U for a month now. It’s a great router when it works.Pros….Excellent wifi signal range, with caveatsGreat throughputDurable constructionCons…Throughput to the WAN drops dailySometimes takes a while to communicate with ISP for DHCPWifi stops communication with WANIn the beginning, this router had everything I was looking for. Excellent wifi range and throughput, bonded LAN ports worked well with my NAS, and my wired connections through my gigabit switch had no issues.I then began to notice some quirks.The most problematic issue was that throughout began to drop significantly on a daily basis. My download speeds would drop from 200+ Mbps to about 5 to 7 Mbps. A reboot of the router would correct the problem.The second minor issue, which was probably a firmware bug, is that when using bonded WAN connections into the router, the status display would report the WAN speed as being 100 Mbps, although the router connection to the WAN, where the IP address is shown, reported a 2Gbps speed. I could not discern any loss of speed there other than the aforementioned speed drop issue.The third issue, after almost a month, is that the wifi appears to have lost its internal connection to the internet. None of my wifi devices could receive data from the internet. My cell phones would connect to the router or report the SSID had an excellent signal, but report no internet or limited access. The router device list did not show any wireless devices.I performed a factory reset. It then took a very long time for the router to obtain an IP address from the ISP.I tried two different DOCSIS 3.0 cable modems, with no improvement noted.I finally removed the RT-AX86U router and reinstalled my old RT-AC68U. All of the issues immediately disappeared.Since it has now been 32 days since I received the router, I don’t think I can return it to Amazon. I suppose I’ll have to work with Asus on these issues, which is disappointing, considering how much the router cost me.

    The true successor to the ac86U has arrived at last!Had the special Best Buy version of the AC86U which has the “upgraded” 1.0ghz dual core CPU’s vs 800mhz and it was a great router. Had the upgrade bug last year and got the AX88U which wasn’t much of an upgrade all things considered but it has stability issues and the first A1 hardware version had heating issues which a lot of other people on small net builder forum will also confirm, the A1.1 version from Vietnam fixed that.However, after COVID situation went to Hell in America, I was forced to work at home more and with my very limited desk space, the AX88u simply took up too damn much real estate. On top of that, I still had Skype call issues with my wife in Japan that I could never fix no matter what I tried.Once I saw news about the AX86U and the first ship arrived with them from Vietnam, I jumped on the chance to grab one.Of course, the footprint of the AX86u is MUCh smaller then the AX88U which was a big thing in my book. It however CANNOT BE WALL MOUNTED out of the box, so bear that in mind. My wifi strength in the 5ghz band at 161 channel in my crowded apt wifi saturated area has been just as good as the AX88u. I have not attempted 2.4ghz usage because my apt complex has waaaaaaaay to many 2.4ghz channels all over the place, so I don’t even bother.The unit does get pretty warm but the “verticle” chassis does allow the hot air to rise and be naturally convected outAt this time, RMerlin HAS NO PLANS to support this model with MERLIN firmware. So if you cannot stand Asus stock firmware, look elsewhere “EDIT: Apparently he is now working on supporting it, but be prepared for A LOT of bugs till a stable version”Also, the out of box firmware has no working Traffic monitoring and QoS, so be sure to update from ASUS websitePROS:1. Looks great without being visually annoying unlike some other routers2. Wifi 5ghz coverage is great with good stability from my testing3. Built in hardware VPN support for your paranoid people4. Tried and true old school Asus GUI interface. No changes here if your happy with it5. 2.5gpbs LAN port support is great for future usage for NAS or gigabit plus internet6. Try as I might, I could not get the quad core 1.8ghz CPU to break a sweat, so you can throw A LOT of network traffic on this sucker for years to come6. Aggregate dual LAN’s for future internet support7. Gaming packet priority LAN port, if you care about such thingsCONS:1. No plans for MERLIN firmware support and thats from RMERLIN himself “EDIT: Apparently he is now working on supporting it, but be prepared for A LOT of bugs till a stable version”2. Asus firmware takes several version to work out bugs for new routers, so be prepared to be beta tester if you need stable high end features3. 2.5gbps LAN port support is not gaurenteed and may or may not be fixed with future firmware updates4. ASUS router GUI is getting long in the tooth and really needs an overhaul5. If your a paranoid/conspiracy theory/tin foil kinda person, the built in TrendMicro protection will collect some personal info. But if your on the internet/have smartphone/social security #, they already know all about you anyway

    Excelente router Wifi 6Excelente router con gran alcance y un sin fin de configuraciones y si se agrega que es compatible con AiMesh pues tendrás una cobertura aun mejor, claro si es que cuentas con otro router asus con la misma tecnología. Anteriormente tenía un TP-Link Ax6000 y funcionó bien al principio pero con el paso de los días fue presentando un poco de fallas y mejor decidí regresarlo. Con este de Asus la velocidad ha sido constante y no he sufrido algún tipo de desconexion. Ojalá así se mantenga. Una cosa importante que debes saber es que como es enviado de Amazon USA entonces no tendrás los dos años de garantía en México; pero Amazon México maneja una garantía denominada complementaria que aplica cuando algún producto electrónico no tiene garantía en México y es vendido y enviado por Amazon USA. Esa garantía consiste en que durante un año te reembolsan el total del importe si es que el producto presenta algún daño. Sin duda es un gran equipo que recomiendo ampliamente.

    Hasta el momento, buen ruteadorDespués de intentar con el TP-Link Archer AX6000 en 2 ocasiones, la 1ra pensé que era falla del hardware (2 semanas) y amazon me lo reemplazo sin problema, pero el 2do me duro un poco mas de tiempo (3 semanas), al final con el mismo resultado, después de un reinicio, la señal de 2.4GHz se fue por completo, ni el reinicio de fabrica lo resolvió, solo 5GHz, levante un caso con soporte pero nada, así que casi por vencer la fecha para devolverlo, lo pude hacer en tiempo y adquirí este RT-AX86U (casi las mismas prestaciones que el RT-AX88U, pero mas barato), el alcance de la señal es ligeramente menor que el AX6000, pero buena y consistente.Lo que si sobresale por mucho este asus es la aplicación (Web y móvil), mucho mas profesional, el QoS fantástico, el mejor que he visto para un ruteador comercial.Lo que tiene TP-Link un poco mejor es el control parental, ya que puedes asignar tiempo diario de internet y bloquear sitios específicos, el asus solo te permite asignar horarios de uso y bloquear categorías de acceso.Excelente para trabajo/estudio en casa, tengo 3 hijos que hacen conferencias de estudio por las mañanas y yo conferencias de trabajo, todos en WiFi, sin el mas mínimo parpadeo.

    Sin duda el mejor 100% recomendado.Sin dudarlo el mejor router wifi que eh comprado, valió cada $ gastado cumple con todas las especificaciones que trae, sin fallas, llevo 1 mes usándolo y estoy totalmente satisfecho con la compra, su app en iOS es súper fácil de manejar y siii tiene muchas cosas que no eh usado pero es mejor tenerlas que no tenerlas y en un futuro necesitarlas. Yo tengo 500 Mbs de internet y si me llega al 100% la señal. También la señal si es de largo alcance, fácil 30mts a la redonda son obstáculos y supongo que sin obstáculos a de llegar más lejos. El control parental que tiene es muy bueno. Bloquea los dispositivos que uno seleccione, ya sea por horarios o días o apps. El antivirus que trae es muy bueno, si cumple con su función. También me indica que dispositivo está consumiendo más internet y sobre eso ponerle un stop para que no atrase los demás dispositivos, lo uso en negocio y pues este control de velocidad me ayudo mucho. Lo si, es algo confuso la configuración para la vía ethernet 2.5G, al final solo opte por la tradicional aún así no tengo fallas.En la configuración web, es también bueno esta la versión básica y la versión pro para configurar Internamente para los más avanzándos en conceptos de configuración del dispositivo. Sin duda un buen dispositivo que vale la pena el gasto? Estuve viendo otros routers Wi-Fis por meses y este me convenció más por que también tiene wpa3 y versiones anteriores wpa/wpa2 y demás. Así que funciona desde los cels más viejitos hasta los más recientes con WiFi6. Eh ahí también por que lo compre ya que otros Wi-Fis tienen según buenas características pero se reinician solos o solo traen de seguridad wpa2 y pues prefiero seguridad wpa3. En pocas palabras me convenció y muyyyy buenas especificaciones y muy buen router que sin duda en un futuro seguiría comprado esta marca ASUS. A me gusto mucho el manejo de su interfaz en iOS. Bien ASUS jejejeSi tienen alguna duda pues déjenla en los comentarios y pues les ayudo si tienen alguna duda antes de su compra o en cosas de configuración. Pero si vale la pena esta compra.

    Constant buffering of when streaming 4K Smart TV( Non- Canadian apps only )I decided to return this item after experiencing constant buffering of certain Apps ( non-Canada) in my smart TV. It is so frustrating.We live in a 1600 square feet townhouse and have 150bmps speed from ISP. So far only connect to 2 Smart device ( one 4K smart TV and 1 projector). But I experience constant buffering when streaming after 1 day of installing it.I thought it is the problem of Apps, because Netflix and Prime are still fast.Also, the speed isn’t very stable either.Today we received Tp-link M9 plus mesh wifi. I glad I did !! ( at least from my observation for now) no buffering at all of those apps and the smart TV streaming.The coverage is also as good as this ASUS Ax86U, if not better. The M9 Plus is wifi 5 tri-band mesh system.I initially bypass TP-link products and never bothered looking at it because I trust Asus so much lol.Please note that the 2 pack M9 plus is 100 dollars cheaper than this
