5.0 out of 5 stars Worked right out of the box, also sufficiently customizable
By Bebop Martin on 16 August 2020
Very happy with purchase. Using the Asus AX88U with a TP-Link Archer VR400 in pass-through mode on an NBN FTTN connection. Excellent coverage throughout the house, even on low TX power setting. Worked right out of the box, also sufficiently customizable. Dual Band Smart Connect is a nice feature, the router can decide whether devices connect via 2.4 or 5G, which means no need to setup separate SSIDs.
Asuswrt-Merlin custom firmware unlocks a whole lot of new potential for customization (ad-blocking, tor, VPN, and more which I'm yet to discover). Decently future proof with good specs on the CPU and memory. Will update review if I notice anything else worth mentioning, but for now, just happy to login and play around with it a bit each day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful and Easy to use
Reviewed in India on 9 August 2021
After ACT had upgraded speeds. I decided to change from my dlink dir 815l and a netgear nx3110 extender to this monstrous Asus Ax6000 and oh yeah this reaches every corner of the house! Though 5-6 walls easily and ground and 1st floor 1400 sq ground and 1st floor should be easily covered. Speed is excellent earlier 4k streaming wasn't possible on WiFi, though Internet (400mbps) supported it, however this router does it on wifi. Tons of options and customizations. Love the AI-Protection, easy pesy setup! Zero hassles. Will update the review after a few months of usage. Mobile app is great as well for configuring.

However not sure if amazon handles the boxes well though it's a recent manufactured product.

Product: Asus RT-AX88U AX6000 Wi-Fi 6 Router
--------------------------------------------------------
October 19th, 2020

Purchased this router as my existing Asus RT-AX3000 Wi-Fi router wasn't giving me much range across two rooms.
I've currently setup the AX88U as the primary router & the AX3000 as an AiMesh node.

SETUP:
Initial setup was smooth & quick, although had some issues while upgrading the firmware for the first time (GUI froze, but fixed after a hard reboot). I can also use my AX3000 configuration settings file on the AX88U, but I chose to configure from scratch just to avoid any issues. A hard reset is recommended after updating the firmware.

WAN SPEED:
I have an ACT Fibernet connection (Chennai), and even though my plan is only 200mbps, speedtests show me a higher rate (No idea why, nearly 400mbps!)
Download speeds max out at 20 Mega Bytes/second (according to my plan).

LAN SPEED:
I have a WD MyCloud NAS attached and file copying speeds over wired ethernet max out at the HDD's file transfer speeds (check attached image).

WIRELESS SIGNAL:
The main reason I purchased this is for it's advertised usage in very large homes and it does not disappoint. The 5GHz range is pretty good, holding a solid 120+ mbps over two brick walls.
The 2.4GHz travels even longer, albeit with slower speeds ranging around 15~30mbps across two brick walls or even through my ceiling to my terrace.

AiMESH:
The Asus AiMesh is a pretty nifty feature to have and creates one seamless interconnected network across all your devices. I'm not using any dedicated wired back-haul line, and the speeds are still consistent everywhere around my house. You can check what devices are connected to the main router vs the AiMesh node using the Asus Router app. The AiMesh node also supports wired LAN connection over wireless (like an access point).

WiFi6:
I have just one device that supports WiFi6 right now (Samsung Galaxy Note 10) but I'm upgrading all my devices in the future, hence I just wanted to future proof my network first. WPA3 is supported with a fallback to WPA2 for unsupported devices. The AX band has some really nice features that promotes faster speeds, beam-forming, MU-MIMO, OFDMA And Target Wake Time to save battery on supported devices.

Overall, the router is pretty powerful if you're thinking of future-proofing your home/office network with WiFi6.
Check out some of the screenshots attached for a better understanding of the product & it's features.
