Bought, thanks !
Does anyone have feedback on these? I have an old house with brick walls... are you able to create multiple SSIDs on your own and choose your band and channel?
Ordered. Thank you op.

A lot of even basic routers supports this now.
Only the second 5Ghz band can support Wi-Fi 6.
It has 512MB RAM compared to 1GB on the RT-AX88U and a slower dual-core CPU.
Still a good brand and router. I was tempted, but this is essentially an early adopter setup. Wait for the wifi6 tech to settle.

Bought these and they are indeed very good replaced powerline adaptors so now fully wireless and have wifi coverage in my garden.

Very happy with them and using with iPhone 11 pro the wifi certainly is very quick at this price its a steal wish I had waited a bit longer!

Ah don't go giving me second thoughts! I was struggling to find anything triband with 11ax backhaul below stupid money, have I missed something?

(Buying ac seems like setting myself up to buy twice at this stage, and not really any less expensive)

Sorry mate - I am in the same boat. I have been reading more on the forums, as far as I can work out, this IS a wifi6 router, but to say it is wifi6 mesh is very misleading. The wifi6 in the mesh setup is used for backhaul only. Great for backhaul, but not so great if you want the advertised wifi6 AX.

Literally the only way to tell is buy one and try it. Each house has varying factors. Your results may not be as good as others . Amazon do easy returns so win win

I have my galaxy s10+ connected to 2.4ghz band and it shows WiFi 6 logo so I think you're mistaken.

Yeah I believe you're right, but I think for me the backhaul alone beats out the AC options - no ax clients today, and a fair chance I'll be running some cat6 at some point (freeing the ax radio for clients).

Did consider a pair of 11000ax's, but that's be nearly 3x the cost of these and less wife friendly :-)

Is this in mesh also? I hope I am wrong, because this is the only thing stopping me.

UPDATE: I did some more googling and the conclusion I have come to is that in AIMesh mode the AX capable 5GHz radio is reserved for backhaul between the pair, the worrying thing is that even if you are using Ethernet to do the backhaul the AX will be disabled. Seems crazy - but this is what I am reading. Not using it in mesh mode and you will get the benefit of the AX but essentially. My advice - wait for the bigger players to bring out wifi6, or buy a single one of these (also discounted).

I thought so too - ordered the tplink p9 3 router setup - doesn’t have it - just one unified ssid with no clue which band or frequency the device latches on to - am sending the p9 back

I read that even when you use the ethernet as a backhaul, ax is disabled. So it makes no difference. For this reason I am passing on this deal.

I have these and it is a good setup, they are really nice and fast. You use to be able to have these connected via Ethernet and have the AX usable (this did involve some slight fiddling, but it was easy enough), but sadly ASUS changed the firmware (around Summer last year) and since then it is MUCH more complicated and while I have heard of people having success I have not tried it myself. I would suggest ASUS will be looking to fix this (they advertise that it is better when connected via ethernet) but I still wouldn't suggest buying them if you are looking for Wi-Fi 6 specifically till they do, offer or not!

Oh I was talking about non mesh mode. So does it look like it will work in WiFi 6 mode in mesh but not 5ghz-2?

Don't upgrade to Firmware version 3.0.0.4.384.7979 which I did last night and got my speed reduced from 500mbps to 80mbps, idiots at Asus have messed up the update big time

I'm sure you folks are right, having tried it. The details on the Amazon page imply otherwise, which is a bit misleading:
If you have on-wall Ethernet ports in different rooms of your home, this feature lets your routers communicate with one another over a wired connection, making your Wi-Fi system even more stable and reliable. It also reserves all the three Wi-Fi bands for your wireless devices, giving them even more network capacity.

Definitely getting tempted by all the mesh kit, though I'd certainly like some WIFI6 ones to settle a bit. Deal posts like this make it harder - heated!

The faster processor and larger RAM is the reason i went for the AX88U rather than 2x AX92U. I managed to get it for 200 from amazon warehouse.

Also the AX88U has the certification for wifi 6 meaning that it meets the final standard (in october i believe). Not sure if the AX92u has been certified to fulfill the final spec or if having the certificate makes any difference in any way
isn't ax88u only dual-band though?
