Did you upgrade from RT-AC5300 or GT?facebook259 wrote: ↑ This is a fairly decent router. I just swapped out my ac5300. Faster speed, and already seems more stable, but time will tell.
Even the router speed test is faster than the ac86u even though it is more or less the same specs aside from wifi 6. I am guessing that means there is better hardware acceleration.
The ac5300 attempted to take all the traffic for the house despite the mesh network mostly wire backbone. The ac86u is allowing the local nodes to take on the nearby clients which explains the speed improvements throughout the house.

I had purchased the rt-ac5300 last week, but was fairly disappointed. Newegg has an open box ax68u if you are looking for a similar price. The rt-ac5300 is a 2015 router design, the gt-ac5300 is a 2018 update of the design.
