    Wait with the purchase until the bugs are fixed

    • Reach 5G
    • Speed (wireless)
    • 8 LAN ports
    • Settings (AsusWrt)
    • But
    • Bugs in Firmware
    • High consumption
    • Expensive
    • No Merlin support for the time being

    Asus latest router has a lot of potential, unfortunately the product was launched too early so there are still too many problems. There have been many updates and with the latest version 3.0.0.4.382.15984 the router is finally running quite stable. Unfortunately IPTV still doesn't work, Qos limits the speed to 20mbps and IGMP snooping kills your online streaming.
    This router is proposed as 'the gaming' router, but since there is no open NAT, you cannot play online with 2 game consoles simultaneously, game over!
    Additionally, Merlin does not support this router either.
    If you have an RT-ac88u, RT-ac5300 or even the old RT-ac68u, it's best to keep it with the Merlin firmware on it, this simply works much better than the new one.
    Hopefully Asus will get this all sorted out, the hardware can do it.

    • Many options

    When I first started it up and connected it, I noticed it was fast. Each parameter that you have to change takes no time at all and therefore less frustration. I have the same download speed on my cable as on my mobile phone with WiFi!

    I should have ordered asus rapture ac5300 much sooner
    • Easy to turn on
    • Simple to set up
    • More lan connections than the rest
    • Good WiFi for everyone in the house
    • Bandwidth is well distributed
    • Ziggo does not have a faster internet

    Asus Rapture GT AC5300 is an investment, but well worth it if you have game and internet freaks at home.

    Super pleasure
    • Reach
    • Design
    • Ease of use
    • Very large extensive possibilities
    • Bit on the pricey side
    • Complaining neighbors

    A fantastic router that I will enjoy for years to come. Still have usable range at the end of my street. Where before I barely had a connection on the 1st floor. Highly recommended that was worth every sent to me.

    Pure speed!
    • Fast, faster, fastest
    • Handy app with many options
    • 8 LAN ports
    • dual WAN capability
    • He's a bit big
    • cannot be hung

    This router is insanely fast, with no restrictions on even the fastest fiber and cable connections. The 8 LAN ports are a welcome addition, most routers stick to 4 ports and that is usually just too little. One of the 8 ports can also be used as a 2nd WAN port, so 2 internet connections can be connected, useful if you depend on the internet for work or if you want to game and stream at the same time without it getting in each other's way. The app is very comprehensive and allows you to monitor the network even when you are not at home. You can also very quickly set up temporary guest networks with a simple password, useful if you have someone visiting. A disadvantage is the size, it is a large device, but that has to be because the antennas have to be a certain distance from each other. Otherwise they will disturb each other. Anyway, I'm very satisfied with it, I can't think of any features that are missing and even with multiple users intensively taxing the router with gaming, Netflix, downloading and copying data over the network did not get him to his knees.

    Just a decent router
    • Range
    • Extended GU
    • And all other things that are not under the negative review
    • Expensive
    • No wall mounting

    AIMESH capabilities, Gaming settings... and the 8 connection and the 2 link aggregation.

    good
    • Powerfull
    • iMesh
    • install
    • price

    This is a very powerful router. The quality of the signal is excellent. I own another ASUS router but as it loses the coverage in the house and it is boring to have 2 wifi networks, I decided to buy an extra router and make a Mesh network with it.

    The installation process is not straight forward. The funny part is that even if you want them to work together wired (and I wired them), you need to set the iMesh network with them in wireless mode. Took me a while until I realized this. But after this, everything works fine now.
