asus-rt-ax58u-router

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
