I adore my 66u's and have found them to be more optimized than the TMo 68AC router. Is the main difference with this the addition of USB 3.0? I wonder if that actually translates to more throughput since it will depend on the router CPU also.

also, the link goes to an ac1750 router.

I really like my AC66u also, it's been very solid for the 6 months I've been using it.

Best I could figure from my previous research is the RT-AC66u and the AC1750 are one and the same.

I use three of these in my house for quite awhile now and they have been rock solid and have never required any maintenance AT ALL. I have them all hard wired to the main router and set the ssid's set to the same name and have rock solid coverage throughout my house. A LITTLE bit of work to set the cut off threshold's on each router but once set up, pretty much bulletproof.

HA! Didn't even know that was an option! Had to google "AiMesh" to see.
No, I did mine all manually, but may look into that now! Thanks for the tip!

I'm interested in adding another router to enable AiMesh but don't see this model (RT-AC66U B1) in the list of supported models: https://www.asus.com/AiMesh/

It looks like only AC1900 and up are capable. Am I mistaken?

Argh, can't find it any more. I read somewhere that the latest revised firmware supports AiMesh and only applies to the B1 version of RT-AC66U (and not the previous version of RT-AC66U). I can't seem to find it any more. Sorry. I think I saw it on one of the network forums, but after googling it for 10 minutes, still cannot find it again...
