After struggling troubleshooting the wireless instability, flashing firmware back and forth, im officially announce that my ac86u is now dead. Well not 100% dead, only the 2.4 radio is kaput.

China set. Luckily I have 4 spare routers, back to WS880 now. Planning to get AC68 or Linksys EA6900 from Amazon.

All of my routers had been abused, none of them running on stock firmware, mostly either ddwrt or openwrt. WS880 is running outdated xwrt vortex, while ac86u running merlin. So far, only this router giving me problem - running hot, unifi TV igmp proxy issue and now failed wireless radio.

I bought this model to replace a dead Archer C7 after 7 years of service. Running latest stock firmware.. just amazing so far.

I was undecided between this and AX3000, but I have no Wifi 6 compatible devices. Getting maximum speed all around the house. Pricey but no regrets. So far.
