Some nice features but also problems 8/5/2020 1:39:38 PM

Pros: I like the parental controls.They actually work. As far as I know my hacking son has not been able to find his way around them. Nice job, Trend Micro! I wish all routers were using your software!

Also, the range is better than my old Netgear router.

Cons: The unit has advanced "Smart Connect" software, but unfortunately the supporting documentation is mostly missing, so it's impossible to figure out.

Customer support is poor. I filled out a form two weeks ago and they haven't answered yet.

The worst thing about the router is that it randomly cuts you off and there's nothing you can do but wait for it to fix itself - usually within 5 minutes, but that's annoying when you really need it. For this reason I'm sending it back when my Linksys arrives.

Overall Review: It's a good unit if you don't need reliable internet service.

disappointing 3/31/2020 11:28:26 AM

Pros: none that jump out at me at this time. May do a follow up later

Cons: unreliable connections
no hangers for wall mount (not counting against that for this review)

Overall Review: Bought this unit off the advice of a friend who has used Asus products for years, for wireless gaming, unable to get wired connection to the console, got this and everything seemed great for the first 2 weeks and now Wi-Fi service off the 2.4ghz is non existant or minimal. I have 200Mbps service from my ISP and when I do get a signal from the 2.4 I get anywhere from 3Mbps - 60. The signal off of the 5g isn't bad usually holds the full 200but on occasion it will drop to 110. Most days I get a steady reliable Wi-Fi signal and can game without the worry of lag or dropped connections, but on the off days just as well not even try to play.

Dear kyle p.,

We're sorry to hear about the issue you're having with this model. Please allow us to make your experience with ASUS a better one. Please ensure you're running the latest firmware version. You can do so by clicking on the following link: https://www.asus.com/us/Networking/RT-AC88U/HelpDesk/
Is it possible to check the router's stability when only one client is connected? If not stable, disconnect and change the client to see if you have found the issue. If fine, add more clients one by one.

For further assistance please feel free to reach out to us by email: customerloyalty@asus.com or speak to an ASUS live support agent. Please use a link to this review as reference. I do look forward to your response. Have an extraordinary day.

Thank you for choosing ASUS.

Pros: Looks cool, but still not worth the money.

The speed an range is amazing, but considering where I'm upgrading from.. 12/3/2019 3:46:42 PM

Pros: Speed, 8 ports, multiple wifi, I mean multiple

Cons: have not figure that one out yet..
actually this thing is very big, make sure you have the space for it.

Overall Review: This thing is supersized in all aspects, actual physical size and functions. It seamlessly connected with my repeaters, and with 2 additional Asus AiMesh AC1750's, I'm certain everything will be impressive..

Exactly what I needed it. 10/15/2019 1:08:27 PM

Pros: Works
String Signal
8 Ethernet Ports

Overall Review: I would recommend this product. At first I thought I bought a dud cause it would only connect for 30 sec then get cut off. Had to reset it a couple of times. Come to find out my ATT fiber router downloaded some firmware not to my knowledge that blocked all routers hooked to it. I had to download some new beta firmware that fixed the problem.
