They advised I had to send this to their repair facility at my cost to have it checked and repaired. They supplied a RMA and I spent $20 to UPS it to California for the repair and even advised it was likely a bad WAN port as everything else seems OK.
Three weeks later I get the router back with a sheet in the badly packed box that states "could not duplicate condition, test OK, updated software". Now I feel sick as I can't believe they did anything to this as the firmware and software were already updated by me, and as for the "could not duplicate condition" did they even test this? It gets no internet connection and has a BIG RED LED on the front panel the "repair" facility apparently missed. Sure enough, I hooked it back up to the sight of the red led of death, aka, no internet connection.
Keep in mind now that during the three weeks of waiting I pulled out my old TP-Link Archer C7 out of the drawer and hooked it up the exact same configuration and it has worked fine. And what does Asus "support" tell me, sorry, "this does not qualify for a replacement unit" so they refuse to replace it and I refuse to spend more of my money to send it back for shoddy testing and repair work.
So here I am with a router that refuses to connect to two different modems with three different cables. It would be different if Asus would stand by their products but they will not, so I will not buy their products ever again!
It claimed to be suited to a home of up to 5000SQ FT and I'd say that it lived up to that claim. One critical change I made was in placing it in a more central location in the house, high and away from other electronic devices.
I'm not a tech guy so setting it up was a challenge. Had a lot of issues connecting to the internet but the secret to success was that the order in which you connect and power on the different devices is critical!! I can't stress that enough.
I have two switches in my network as well so I further added to the complications of this install.
I can't comment yet on how the final phase of the Network will go but I also bought a WAVLINK Outdoor AP/Repeater to extend my WiFi into the back yard. I'll install it this spring and update this review on whether they play together well or not.
La instalación súper sencilla, un next next finish y listo. Las velocidades de transferencia de archivos y para jugar ya sea en la PC o con el Xbox excelentes. Sin embargo empece a notar que la red wifi de 2.4 ghz me estaba dando problemas para conectar, tengo una impresora que utiliza esta banda, otros gadgets que utilizan esta red y note que se desconectaban.
Intente de todo, resetee el router, le hice el upgrade del firmaware y nada, pensé "puedo sobrevivir con solo la wifi de 5Ghz", pero ayer en la noche, tampoco tenia red wifi 5ghz, y hoy en la mañana ni por cable me podía conectar. Al fin de cuentas ya dejo de funcionar todo, se prende y apaga solo, cuando intenta dar red por cable se vuelve a desconectar, ya no funciona más.
De verdad estoy muy insatisfecho con este producto, muy mala calidad para un Router tan caro. Volví a leer todas las reseñas de amazon.com y todos los que pusieron malas calificaciones tienen exactamente el mismo problema que yo.
Si no quieren perder tiempo y dinero no compren este modelo.
Tuve un Apple Air Port Extrem AC, un D-Link DIR-890L y puedo decir que no se comparan.
Tengo Axtel a 50MB/s y un departamento de 100 m3 con dos muros de carga juntos y dos baños juntos y este Router logra pasar esos obstáculos y manejarme sin problema casi los 50 MB/ contratados de descarga.
El Apple Air Port Extrem AC nunca dio problema, pero no podia pasar tantos obstáculos.
El D-Link DIR-890L, este si daba problemas, es triple banda y tuve que desactivar una banda para mantenerlo estable. Y en la parte más lejana del departamento tenia problemas de velocidad y de desconexión. Mi esposa odiaba el router.
Este en cambio, con tener solo una ralla te da una velocidad muy rápida y constante. Además es muy fácil de configurar y administrar si quieres hacer cambios un poco más complejos. No es triple banda pero no hace falta.
Ahora si disfrutamos de varios streamings a la par sin problema.
Y el precio cuando lo compré en Amazon fue lo mejor.
Eso solo duró unicamente 1 año.
Después del año, empezó primero a desconectarse los dispositivos en ambas redes 2.4 y 5 ghz, realice escaneo de canales para evitar el overlap etc etc, cambie cables UTP, ubicación, firmware lo pase de Merlin al origina y viceversa, utilice firmware anterior con el que funcionaba bien, instale ventiladores USB en la parte trasera por si era sobrecalentamiento, no puse nada en automático todo lo configure de de 0 "n" veces y fijo. WAN, canales, ancho de banda, DHCP lo deje en el router y desactive el del modem. Y muchas cosas mas y simplemente sigue desconectando dispositivos de red WIFI ambas frecuencias. Se soluciona reiniciando el modem sin embargo pasa cada 5 minutos o cada hora o 2 horas o 1 día( máximo tiempo sin fallar) , dependiente del estado de ánimo del RT-AC86U.
Por el precio muy mala inversión garantía en México, casi nula, realice una mala inversión y mala compra.
