Asus RT-AC88u - high end Wifi router at the best price I have seen for a while.

Upsides - great price, great router, VPN management etc.
Downside - Gearbest / slow delivery

Hot hot.

Aren't there problems using some Chinese market routers in the UK and EU?

Amazing price Hot, for anyone who knows the difference.
I paid well over £100 more and Asus were great in helping with issues the early adopters had with some of the features. A few log files later and Asus technical had iron out the bugs with a new firmware. Well worth the investment just make sure your ISP will let you use your own router as more and more ISP demand that you use the provided router so that they have complete control of your connection

Can anyone confirm whether this is resolved with a firmware update / custom firmware? I'm about to pull the trigger.

I heard China has different bands for 5Ghz wireless and some imported routers won't work with UK equipment but I suppose it depends on what the exact model they are selling is?

can anybody confirm as want to get one?

Got a RT-AC87U not long ago and I have not seen 2-3 days without it restarting! It happens even when I am browsing online. Disappointed by Asus.

Anyone look for one of these routers knows it's worth and what it's capable of. An absolute steal at this price. Very tempted, never purchased from Gearbest, what they like?
