[Best Buy] Asus AC86U AC2900 Wireless AC Router $199.99

If you don't mind the price, this is a very good router to get.

It has a very fast CPU making it suitable for VPN use. The fast CPU also greatly increase USB transfer speed. It is also AIMesh compatible.

Very reliable router, and has no issues even with over 50 wireless devices connected.

I own this router.

Bought it when BB had it on sale for $199.99 and PM'ed it against Staples and stacked on a few coupons.

Would definitely recommend!

Any significant difference in terms of range and speed over the AC1900P (AC68U) ?

Price is steep for a router but i'm recommending it. I have this in my basement and signal is #1 on my 2nd floor. 10/10 would recommend

Would this be an upgrade from the R7000?

I expect further price cuts for ac routers as 801.11ax is around the corner.

This is an outstanding router for a great price. AFAIK it has the fastest CPU of any router, with coverage to match. I'm very happy with mine. It's great for NAS usage also. Overall highly recommended.

Does Best Buy do price adjustments? I bought this on sale on June 1st for $229.99. Only $30 but I'd take it if I can get it.

YES!! absolutely!! range is way wider, and 5GHz range is longer. Speeds is way faster... I am able to get up to 900MBs on bell fiber connected directly (by pass the bell modem).. R7000 could only go up to 650.

Same question.. Worst case, you box it up and return it (you have 30 days) then you buy it again!

Sold...LOL!
I'm on the rogers grandfathered W45, so speed is not a major concern.
How's the 2.4Ghz range, as mine dies in the basement (house is 3500sqft)?

I own this router and it has very good range. I have to walk a pretty far distance from my house to get wifi to stop lol.
