Besides being a part of different WiFi standards, the Asus RT-AX58U and the Asus RT-AC86U do have some elements in common (such as the 1024-QAM, BeamForming and MU-MIMO) and even cost-wise, they’re not that different (at the moment), so is this the right time to switch to the newer WiFi 6 standard or is it … Read more

The ASUS RT-AX58U (RT-AX3000) is somewhere in the middle of the ‘budget’ WiFi 6 router series from ASUS, immediately after the ‘flagship’ RT-AX88U, but better equipped than the slightly less powerful RT-AX56U and, considering that, at the moment, it’s priced somewhere near the RT-AC86U, I think it’s a nice manner to ease your way in … Read more

The Asus RT-ACRH17 is an AC1700 router that was released a bit over a year ago as a successor to the relatively popular RT-ACRH13 and part of the exclusive RH line, so it’s limited to only a few countries.
