I have the rt-ac86u as my main router. Is this a good option for AI mesh?

What's a good budget AIMesh partner?

Life has never been better.
I also run 2x AC86s. Everything works really well

If you manage to find one somewhere, the TM-AC1900 is usually about 50$ and can be flashed to a AC68U. They are hard to come by these days though.

I bought this for $150 about 4 years ago. Don't think it's a hot price given how old this is.

I 100% agree. This is too expensive.

This still seems a little rich, with respect.
Yup AC86U is the best router back in the day, I still have it for VPN routing and it never let me down.
