Great router for Virtual Desktop on Oculus Quest (as well as Steam Link on TV)

Fast and does what I need; simple set-up; lots of options; simple mobile app to manage

None currently (though Im not using it for much)

I got this router for 1 simple reason: playing PCVR games wirelessly using Virtual Desktop on my Oculus Quest and Quest 2, and it works flawlessly. I have my computer hard-wired to the router, the router set to repeat the existing wifi in the house (so I can still get an internet signal to my Quest when connected to the router), and the Quest connected to this routers 5G signal. I get a rock-solid 1200mbps in Virtual Desktop and have no issues at all - exactly what I needed.While not the main reason I got it, I also use this for Steam Link to easily play non-VR PC games on my TV, and, again, have no issues at all - no noticeable video or input lag, and everything always looks crystal clear at 1080p/60fps (the max Steam Link supports). No other devices in the house (except the Quests and Steam Link) are connected to the 5ghz router signal, ensuring the best speeds.I cant really comment on any other use-scenario - but if Virtual Desktop PCVR streaming or Steam Link are what youre looking at this router for, it works fantastically.

I wanted to love this

- WiFi 6 and all the goodness that comes with it

- Antennas dont seem to be removable so you can not fit this back in the box to return it or replace the antennas with higher gain.
- Mediocre range/penetration compared to my AC86U
- Seems a bit cheaply built

I bought this and tried it and I am less than thrilled with my choice. I got an RMA from newegg to send it back but I cant remove the antennas to fit it back in the box. I contacted ASUS but they are telling me to unscrew them.. they didnt screw on and they cant screw off. Bad design.
