Official firmware is stable. No need to install Merlin unless it is needed. For example, OpenVPN is not working on official one (wasted lot of time on this  previously). DLNA issue that I faced. Or you need to customize stuffs that not supported on official one. And so on...

Do check out snbforums for more Merlin stuffs.  smile.gif

Ships from China and lowly rated seller... I'd avoid such sellers.

Great price from 11street. And based International Shipping Policy - custom tax is borne by the global sellers. Does that include SIRIM AP as well?

Anyway, as long as it arrives safely without issue. That's good. FYI, latest firmware DOES improve AC86U 5GHz performance compare to AC68U. A lot!!! smile.gif

when you say new firmware is it original asus firmware or some third party firmware like the merlin firmware?

Performance wise. Both of them are the same. Merlin firmware won't give you extra boost on that. But does have more features. rclxms.gif

Hey guys, I want to get this router from tb, but someone from other thread mention about this

QUOTE(chocobo7779 @ Feb 2 2018, 08:43 PM)
Just some more information:

Usually different countries have different laws on wireless frequency transmission - it's best not to import a router from other countries as the underlying firmware may transmit wireless signals at frequencies that may be forbidden here icon_idea.gif

Also the router from Taobao may have a different firmware (which may have a backdoor installed, due to government regulations) in it instead of the international firmware  icon_idea.gif

It has several regions to select. I select Asia now. As for firmware, just install official firmware from Asus website will do. Or Merlin that I am using now. smile.gif

Great by using cable method. Wireless performance is just like repeater but with same SSID.

How did you manage to buy this from Taobao? I browse two weeks back Taobao was having promotion for this router, about RM500 only right. But all sellers I asked cannot ship it here. In the end ordered it from 11street for RM 680.

Yup, setup and it will auto download latest official firmware and using it. Signal is better than the default router by time, but not spectacular. Iphone in my room used to be zero or one bar, with asus is one bar to two bar.

p/s: I point all the antenna to the direction of my master bedroom which is furthest from my computer room where I need wifi the most cause there's multiple wall blocking it. Is that the best way to orient the antenna?
