a great deal on new, but...

if you plan on going with dd-wrt, start with a late 2017 version cause many
of the BS and Kong builds mid to late 2018 are an unstable buggy mess.

bottom line is if the stock firmware does not already have
most of the flexible features you want, then don't buy this.

this is why i stopped wasting time with tp-link, linksys and netgear
because asus stock firmware already does most of what i need, so
i no longer have to deal with dd-wrt, just to get some basic features.

This is a really really good price on a 4X4 router with extremely good 2.4ghz performance and above average 5ghz performance. I am locked into my Asus gear cause I want the option for Aimesh in the future but if i was looking for a router around $100 this currently cant be beat. It also has great range cause of the 4x4.

Forgot to mention one possibly big negative is the attached storage speeds are very poor for this device compared to others. So if you plan on attaching hard drives to it your speeds will not be that hot.

What do you mean by "So if you plan on attaching hard drives to it "

Should I buy this or keep my T-Mobile Asus RT-AC68U router and flash the Asus firmware to it? I know this is $100 vs the $40 the Asus is, but money aside which would give me better performance? I am a not a power user, just using router to get signal to a few devices for streaming.

The back of the router has a USB 2.0 port you can hook up a external hard drive to that port and make that hard drive available to everyone on your network to use and stream media off.

I would say yes, since this is more equivalent to the 86U. Also its a 4x4 design compared to 3x3 on the asus.

I dont know what default router is sorry. I live in the land of Comcast unfortunately and all their crappyness.

If the device you have is a modem and router in one, then no you cannot replace that with this. If you specify what you have I can tell you for sure.

If it is a all in one device from VZ and you just want better performance, you can always turn off the wireless on the VZ device and make the D-Link your main for the wireless and routing functionality.

sadly, aimesh is a bust, so if that's your goal, then buy netgear orbi pucks nod

Not really a bust but still needs some fine tuning. If your using just pure wireless stick to 2 nodes max. If you can use Ethernet back haul than you can move up from 2 nodes to 3+. In all instances you should turn off band steering which does a lot of craziness.

I have a 5300 from Asus so its been able to cover everything I need for now. Hopefully with some more updates the AiMesh will just keep getting better and better.

you might get lucky if asus finally caves in and uses the second 5g radio on the 5300 and 3200 as an aimesh dedicated backbone, but now that asus came out with their own lyra mesh puck system, there's not much incentive for asus to develop aimesh much beyond it currently being a marketing gimmick.

Unless you have 4x4 clients you probably won't benefit much from the DIR-882.

I would disagree cause the Lyra came out a long time ago last year, the latest trios that came out this year are even slower than the first gen. The AiMesh only came out of beta earlier this year. If your statement was true they could have just dropped development on it all together. In the long run the marketing gimmick will probably sell more routers than people buying Lyra kits which are all showing to be low performers compared to other mesh kits. If anything the Lyra line might be dropped.

a common misconception. mu-mimo can support multiple narrow bands or bind them together for one fat channel between two devices, so if you have many wifi devices but none are 3x4 or 4x4, you will still benefit from having a mu-mimo router as long as you setup your 2.4 for 20/40 wide and 5.0 for 40/80 wide. 160 wide is fairly new, so i personally would not bother with it - as it will only annoy your neighbors who's wifi you may be stepping on. right now my ac3100 (4x4 router) is bonding with my fire stick at 866Mbps over 5g - it could not do that if mu-mimo was not working.

agreed - it's still too early to know how these things will turn out.
by the time they do - it may not matter in a few years,
since we'll be buying .aX routers by then nod
