Sending from M'sia to China for warranty claim is PosMalaysia RM45.
From China to Malaysia is one of the China Logistic company.  Around RM40 also by Air.

Within RM1k including shipping fee for two units, i bought one unit for RMB 849 during last week school opening sales.

If you're not in rush, maybe can wait for 1111

Sorry, mind if i ask how did you check the temperature as per your thumbnail?

The original firmware by Asus doesn't come with the temperature feature.

You have to flash it to Merlin

Hi bro,

nice review on the router.

but can anyone give me some recommendation on which router to get?

planning to buy a router for the unifi turbo upgrade to 800mbps

1) router signal must be strong enough for 2 storey house, 22x75 house
2) with mu-mimo
3) budget around RM600 +/-
4) support unifi
5) wifi speed is not a big issue for me.
6) Saw your mi router pro review, but it must have smart switch right? is it worth to get for unifi?

Thank in advance.

thinking of getting the AC86U. hope to clarify a few things...

1. anyone here got china units from local shopee sellers? stated 3 years warranty.
2. does this router still have issues with unifi tv with latest firmware? as in need to wait long for unifi tv to connect and run?

thanks

If I'm not mistaken, it stated International Warranted instead of Local.

Anyway, using 3 China set here thumbup.gif

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.

Local or China set? hmm.gif

I am back to Merlin firmware due to AiMesh issue on latest official firmware - need to reboot several times everyday. Maybe you should too.

Alright, will check it out.

Thank you very much thumbup.gif

Yes, of course. You are changing firmware from official to custom one. Even downgrade official firmware should factory reset too.

Based on my test on Merlin firmware, it is very stable. No need to reboot for several days already.  rclxms.gif

Alright, will try it out.

Once again, thankiu thumbsup.gif
