Perfect in AiMesh

Submitted on Wednesday, March 28, 2018

From Edmonton

Strengths of the product

Probably overkill but I have two of these set up in AiMesh running the latest firmware. Followed the Asus set up instructions as listed and everything runs smoothly with clients connecting where I would expect. 40 clients with no drops and quick response. Use two SSID, one for 2.4 and the other for 5ghz. Backhaul to the main router uses the second 5ghz channel.

Weaknesses of the product

They are big but if you can hide them where you can still get optimum signal that isn't a problem

Additional Comments

Perfect if you have a smart home and numerous clients.

Strengths of the product

Tons of features.

Weaknesses of the product

Didn’t perform as advertised. Huge and bulky. Way too expensive. Weak coverage vs the amount of antennas it got

Additional Comments

Long story short, i bought this router about 3 months ago to ugrade my old router based on the reviews i seen online, I connected everything and ran it for 3 hours or so, i did not notice any crazy improvement as they advertise, same dead spots, same speed, same everything, i could swear my older $60 router was even more responsive, also right after i installed the firmware update it stalled and stopped working. Don’t fall for the marketing hype people.

Terrible 5Ghz coverage

Strengths of the product

Good 2.4Ghz coverage Tri-band Upgradable to MerlinWRT firmware

Weaknesses of the product

For a $400 router there are a lot of flaws. - First is browsing is hit-or-miss. Sometimes it works normally, other times (most times) it takes forever loading the pages when they should be instantaneous since you're directly connected to it. - The 5Ghz coverage is bad. Like really bad. From its own sensor it was only outputting at 68% even after pumping the gain to maximum. - Tech support for it the device is awful. The suggestions were to change 5Ghz to support 802.11n only.

Additional Comments

For the price this costs you might as well go with a Ubiquiti router and access point and buy a couple of small switches if you need the wired connections.

Strengths of the product

RT-AC5300. Yes, the router is a strength.

Weaknesses of the product

We call it "The Mothership" it looks like one, which is a plus, but it's also the size of one.

Fantastic Router

Strengths of the product

This is a beast of a router. If it doesn't give you cancer, it will cover your home in warm fast connectivity. Easy setup and configuration, I replaced the stock firmware with MERLIN WRT version for added fixes. Blazing signal strength in my multi level home, I have 26 wifi devices all humming along just fine.

Weaknesses of the product

BIG, did I mention this thing is HUGE.

Additional Comments

Great router, lots of functionality, fantastically fast WI-FI. Not sure it's worth the ~$500 range, but I needed speed and power.
