that wouldn't make sense since the model is AC1900

cnet says it's a 3x3 802.11ac router

That's why I asked. Checked it on amazon and it doesn't show support for 802.11AC. That must have been some error.

The review on small net builder doesn't make it sound that great.. For $90 I'll probably keep looking

Google has updated the router to enable mesh. I have been using 4 onhub units this way and very happy about the ac1900 mesh since last summer.

Yep, same. I have full coverage of my entire property with strong, stable wifi.

But you would still need another asus router. For $50 a piece, you can get the same mesh coverage with ac68u

Have you by any chance compared the ac68u to google wifi/onhub? While speed is important the biggest factor for me is signal strength/range since I live in an old house made of brick and concrete (12 inch thick in some places). I currently have 3 Linksys 610n's and now with so many devices the network is showing its age. Really confused between 3 ac68's (one connected via Ethernet second WiFi backbone), or spending $100 more and getting google wifi or onhubs.

I have one of those routers and really don't like it. It would lose WiFi and/or internet connectivity regularly (about 1x per week, although sometimes it could go a few weeks without problems) then it would have to be rebooted. That's the only router I've had to reboot that much. Maybe it was just a bad one but there was never quite enough wrong with it for Asus tech support to be able to offer anything.

My network issues mostly went away after switching to a Asus OnHub router, which gets rebooted about once every 2 months. I also like being able to easily see the internet status remotely using the Google WiFi app (as well as a number of other features).

That being said, at this price point there are a number of good router options.

If you do spring for this router, recognize there are some limitations (e.g. with Plex: https://www.reddit.com/r/OnHub/comments/3za5gv/dns_rebinding_issue_connecting_to_local_secure/) [reddit.com]

Same experience as BrainDoc. I had an ac68u which had to be rebooted weekly and switched to the Asus OnHub (2x) and have had no issues.

I ran stock firmware. I don't mind tinkering with routers and settings and installing alternative firmware but ultimately I decided I wanted a router that "just works", which is why I went with the Asus OnHub (if Google WiFi had been out at the time I would have gone that route - although with the OnHub you can mesh Google WiFi routers into the network without any difficulty). I'd rather spend my time on other things than keeping routers updated and working. That's a reason I like the OnHub/Google WiFi -- Google keeps the firmware up-to-date remotely without me having to do anything.

Mesh network? Do you have one set up as the main and the other 2 wireless?
