The worst router I have ever purchased

Pros: Absolutely nothing, it's a dead brick.

Cons: Died overnight, Asus only resolution is RMA without a replacement or temporary stand-in unit.

Other Thoughts: I would never recommend this device or Asus products ever again.

Wifi drops all the time - ASUS needs to fix

Pros: Speed and distance

Cons: This router needs a serious firmware update. Wifi drops all the time and the router is effectively unusable. I had 8 wifi cameras connected to the router and they were unuseable due to wifi dropping constantly. I had to stop using this new router AX88U as my main router and put my AC88U back as the main router. Once the AC88U was up and running as the main router all the wifi dropping problems stopped.

Other Thoughts: Do not buy until ASUS comes out with updated firmware fixing the wifi issues. Even after the December firmware update, wifi dropping issues still exist.

Just stops working, over and over again

Pros: At this point nothing.

Cons: The wifi just keeps shutting its self off. It has the latest firmware, but just keeps crashing. I've had it a little over a month and now its just a very expensive PPOOSS. that I have to power cycle damnnn near once a day.

Disable the "Roaming assistant" functionality (It might fix your wireless connection dropping issue also.)

Pros: - it can handle all sorts of heavily loaded connection (security camera, streaming multiple devices, etc) when it works.
- aimesh works with wired backhaul

Cons: - it is better than my netgear ac1900 in range, but my house still have a deadzone.
- updated to 3.0.0.4.384_5247. But still, wireless clients keep randomly dropping to a point that the router can't even handle any wired connection.

Other Thoughts: For those who want to return because of the wireless client dropping issue, try to disable the Roaming assistant functionality for both 2.4g, and 5g under advanced setting->wireless->professional to see if it helps. (I disabled mine for a day, and everything great so far.)

Need a better GUI
- the client list in the GUI keeps on shrinking/growing for every 10ish seconds no reasons. It is particularly confusing because one would think the client connections were dropped, when it didn't.
- no way to know if the mesh node has the same settings as the mesh router.
- can't tell what kind of connection (2.4g, 5g) or speed the client has when connected to the mesh node.

Easy set and working as expected

Pros: I have not experienced any of the problems others have described here. My RT AX88U is set up as main router paired with an RT AC88U as the AiMesh node. Home is two stories, 2,000 sq/ft. My ISP is gigabit fiber.

Ethernet connection tests at over 900 mbps up and down. WiFi, depending on device, time of day and proximity has been consistently testing from the 300's to over 500 mbps up and down. Recent firmware updates installed without a hitch.

Currently there are about 20 devices connected and I have not had any drop off since setting up 3 weeks ago. Mine has been stable out-of-the box.

Cons: None so far...

Firmware issues

Pros: Fast. Amazing range on the wifi. No issues with wifi drops. 8 lan ports.

Cons: Enabling aiprotection and/or qos cuts wan speeds nearly in half. Random reboots.

Other Thoughts: Never thought I'd say this given all the issues it STILL has but, "Had to put my GT-ac5300 back to work due to problems with my main router."
Thankfully, it looks like Merlin will be supporting the rt-ax88u.

Buggy

Pros: Ax built in for future generation. Sleek look and speed

Cons: WIFI randomly drops out on all of my wireless devices. One time, router disabled radio band by itself. As a result, lost connectivity to all of my wireless devices for good until manually turned it back on. Tried few settings on both 2.4 and 5ghz inside the router, nothing worked. Wireless log doesn't show anything noteworthy regarding connectivity issues, so hard to know what exactly causing the WIFI to drop randomly. Maybe, its firmware require an upgrade. Hope Asus tech team will look into this expensive piece of device and fix the issues that are causing devices to lose connection.

Other Thoughts: It's a future generation device, like it for its speed and sleek design but wouldn't recommend people to wait until issues related to WIFI are sorted out. It could also be some mismatched settings inside the router, trying out on few settings change and see if that fixes it. Will post the solution here if the solution I tried fix it.

Working as expected

Pros: Strong fast connection

Cons: Had to reboot 1 time. COD promotion is a nightmare BEWARE. Code does not work, this router is not listed as a part of the promo. I called for support and now waiting for a response. No email back from ASUS at all. Hopefully NewEgg response is faster.

Other Thoughts: A great overall router super fast and I love the 8 LAN Ports I can hardware all my gaming consoles. My only issue with the router so far is 5g sometimes does not show up and I had to reboot the router. I will update this review as I use it for a few months.
