Description

Update: After EXTENSIVE testing of all these routers: Asus AC87U, Netgear R7000, Netgear R8000, Apple Airport Extreme, and the Linksys WRT1900AC routers, EVERY router had issues with 20 wireless clients and 15 wired clients (two being media servers).

RESULT: At the end of the day, the ONLY router that did not fail, slow, or need to be rebooted daily was the Asus AC87U. Note that it's only stable when using the latest firmware, which doesn't show up under auto-update yet, and must be downloaded directly from Asus's support website. With this firmware, though, it is the most stable router of all of them by far, and has not even hiccuped after 6 straight days of use with no reboots. Definitely buy the AC87U.... it's the best consumer on the market.


After purchasing the Asus RT-AC87R, I felt it necessary to compare it to the R8000 since nobody can legitimately decide between the two. So, here is the setup and comparison between the R8000 and the AC2400. Honestly, I think I'll return the R8000. It's great, but it's just an extra radio and I found speed and reception both to be greater with the Asus, surprisingly. We will have to wait and see how the Asus performs after the first firmware update, since right now it occasionally drops wifi, which is to be expected from a brand new router like this.
