    Fast and powerful with some hick-ups

    Tom | 11 January 2021

    • 8 ethernet ports, no extra switch necessary
    • Supports AiMesh, Asus’ mesh solution
    • Powerful webGUI and app
    • Parental controls, trafffic monitoring and time scheduling
    • Be really careful with Installing new firmware. Quality control is lousy, often things break. Wait a couple of weeks with install.
    • I hate the ‘cool’ design. It’s neither pretty nor practical.
    • WebGUI and app are powerful but take some figuring out.

    It’s fast, supports a mesh set-up (I use one RT-AC88u and two RT-AC68u), has a generous number of ethernet ports and comes with a powerful webGUI and app to support parental controls (traffic monitoring and time scheduling). Handy to block our teenagers’ internet access after 22.00h (otherwise they never sleep).

    The webGUI and app take some getting used to though they do get more user-friendly with every update.

    After a few bad experiences, I’m not so fond of Asus firmware updates. One time ethernet ports 5-8 stopped working after an update. The most recent one blocked access to the webGUI. On the web other people report similar experiences.

    The navigation of the webGUI is confusing I can never remember what functions live where.

    And the physical ‘gaming’ design is a bit stupid: bulky, you can’t put anything on top, wallmounting is unhandy.
