    Wow. For these prices you can get a Celeron J4125 powered pfsense router.

    •  

      A lot of the cost comes from the wireless module.

      I looked a lot into building a wireless6 router, the cost blows out pretty quick.

      But also no need for a $400+ router for that use…

        You could use a cheap Xiaomi WiFi6 router as an access point. Get a 4 port J4125 based pfsense box on AliExpress all for about the same price as one of these high end ASUS routers.

      Could I get a recommendation for one, please?

      I use an Orbi system for Wifi, so really only need the router bit.

      Want to link some clients to a VPN, want dynamic on/off for certain clients (kids) - I’m guessing all of this is easy for the router. The crux will be the config side of things, I assume.

        Something like this.
        https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005002894118374.html?spm=a2...
        It's over kill powerful for most home uses.
        You could install ESXI then install fpsense on top for routing and VPN, and install a Linux server for other purposes.
        There's a lot of resources and youtube videos on how to set up pfsense and ESXI. Though, I haven't done it yet.

          Thanks - ordered a similar one!

        88U and use merlin firmware, you be able to configure VPN and route certain traffic via the VPN, very easy to setup
        very reliable router if you don't want to messed around or tinkle or just want something that just plug and play with all the features

      OPNsense, not pfSense

    •  

      My personal opinion is that once you end up at this price point, trying to get a better wireless signal, you are better off getting a router + AP setup, e.g. ubiquiti set up.

      1. You arent bound to the location of the internet connection as your wifi point - which is often sub optimal and the main issue people who buy expensive wifi routers are trying to bandaid
      2. When wifi 6E or 7 or whatever comes out you just swap a 100$ AP rather than the entire unit
      3. Can do a proper mesh deployment with multiple APs as needed, with much cheaper increments
  •  

    ah yes "Gaming Routers" makes total sense….. But does it have RGB?

    •  

      The Xiaomi AX9000 does. Cheaper yet better than the Asus models listed here.

      •  

        Do not think the Xiaomi AX9000 supports Merlin firmware.

      RT-AX82U does have RGB.

        Awesome router.
        I have it meshed to a RT-AX86U.
        Working together like champions.

        But you are far better off not paying the extortionate price for the Gundam special edition when the standard edition frequently sells for a little over half the price..

    eh still got a better deal on my rapture ax11000 for $350.

      ASUS ax11000 $350? impossible

      • +5 votes

        It was possible a couple of years back. I just checked my receipt.

        HN was selling it for $567 when they had a 20% Asus sale, and using the ~15% Amex HN deal + $100 ASUS cashback + TRS, it brought the price down to ~$330ish ($567 * 0.85 - $100 - $51 = ~$330).

        Ended up selling it for $430 a couple of months back and got the UDMP.

      The prices on these the OP posted arent exactly a bargain compared to yours but… let me reassure you someone buying these arent in for performance for dollar..the paint on them is worth a lot more. And in that case, these gundum collaboration items are a 'deal' compared to their 'normal' pricetag.

      That link is cooking me.
      ASUS ROG RT-AX88U?
      It’s literally a GT-AX11000.
      Very confusion.

    Any good keyboard deals?

    The website says that the Tenda Nova MW6 3-pack comes with a free MW6 Single pack but nothing gets added to the cart.

    Is this a redemption thing or does it get shipped with the extra 1 pack?

      Hi There

      The extra 1 pack will be ship out together with 3 pack.
      Thanks.

        Hi Ryugen
        This vendor promotion has ended since end of June.
        This is reseller only promotion.
        So you don't need to claim via redemption.
        Thanks

    Any decent 4g sim routers?

    I have one without a red sticker and it cost me 210…and I've seen it much cheaper. No deal.

      This is the ax86u not the ac86u, they both look similar in design but this one supports wifi 6. The lowest I've seen the ax86u go for is about $399 (non-gundam).

    Will the 'ASUS RT-AX88U AX6000 DUAL BAND 802.11AX WIFI 6 ROUTER WITH MU-MIMO - NBN READY' work if I replace it with my TPG provided router? Thanks

    •  

      FTTN, FTTB = TPG VDSL2 modem + RT-AX88U.
      FTTC = nbn NCD + RT-AX88U.
      HFC, FTTP = nbn NTD + RT-AX88U.

      •  

        Is the 88U worth it if I got HFC in my house? Or there is a more suitable router for me?
        My partner and I mostly use it for online gaming. Other than this, we will have some other small devices connected to the router (e.g. phones, iPads, TV)
        Mine is 3 bedrooms single storey. The NBN plan is the fastest one.

        •  

          RT-AX88U is a good buy for HFC. Review. Are you on 1000/50?

          •  

            @Twix: I guess only fttp has 1000/50. My test result is around 350/50.

            • +1 vote

              @zys0421: Nah HFC is capable of 1000/50. Most likely the router you have now is holding your speeds back. Plugin the RT-AX88U into the nbn NTD.

    What is the asus laptop spec? Very confusing, sounds likew it had 2 gpu and 48gb ram and extrenal gpu.

    •  

      it has the APU from the Ryzen CPU, the DGPU 1650TI and an external GPU - laptop based 3080 wth 16gb ram.. connected via a proprietry port cable, via 8 lanes of PCI-express 3.0
      (max possible throought he Ryzen APU series).

      the machine only has 16gb of ram for the CPU though…

    •  

      seems to be a gaming ultra book, lightweight with GTX1060 internal GPU but packs a punch in desktop mode when you plug in the ROG XG Mobile external GPU adapter which has an GTX3080 GPU which can drive 2x 4K monitors.

      Computer specs are:
      Win10 Pro
      16G RAM
      512GB SSD
      ROG XG Mobile external GPU GTX 3080

    150sqm house with wifi dead spots at the end, 4 walls.

    Am I better off with Mesh wifi or one of those $400-500 mark router?

    •  

      Do you have multiple Ethernet ports around the house?

      •  

        Nope

        •  

          That makes it tough. You could get a router with big range. Thought I think you might be better off just getting a mesh system (e.g. Deco m5) where the routers can connect to each other wirelessly. If possible, I'd try and connect the routers with a powerline adapter though.

    Will any of these help with my dog shit fttn nbn? On top of being 900 metres away from the node, we have insulation in the roof that seems to impact the connection around my tiny ass home. The signal is good for about 10m but seems to drop in speeds all the time.
