This is a OnHub /Google WiFi router, you won't be able to AiMesh it with your existing Asus. Thing about Google routers is they have cut out a lot of features in name of simplicity. If you want a "it just works" wireless AP then it's great, but if you want a print server and a torrent box then you can't.

That said, it's a good router, have had mine for about 3 years now (along with a TP Link OnHub for a year) and it has been great.

I have the T-Mobile ASUS router(RT-AC68U), should I buy this one or wait for another T-Mobile deal? I want an AiMesh.

I'm looking at adding either this or the TP-Link OnHub to my Google puck router. Since you have both the Asus and TP-Link OnHub routers, do you mind sharing your opinion on which you like better?

Software is identical so it falls to hardware which is very slightly different where I don't really have a preference. I think the Asus looks better, but whatever. Honestly if I were to buy a 3rd hub I'd just get the first one I found on sale.

As a current Google Wifi mesh router what advance would this bring to my current setup?

Does anyone have input on what - if any - substantial differences there are between this model of OnHub vs the TP-Link version?

Almost nothing at all. It would be another puck in the matrix - you know if you need another puck or not. Technically speaking it is a little better than a puck as it's AC1900 vs the pucks which are AC1200, but again that might not mean anything in your environment.

As stated,OnHub won't get you AiMesh currently (probably ever). You could wait for the T-Mobile deal, buy a used AC-1900 or try this https://www.amazon.com/Wireless-AC1900-Dual-Band-AiProtection-Certified-Refurbished/dp/B075GYWPCJ/re... [amazon.com]

Other than appearance, the only functional difference is that with the Asus you can wave your hand over it to put a selected (in the app) device into priority mode. The TP has a directional antenna in the front (opposite side of the ports) that I understand is meant to be used as the backhaul for the mesh and it works really well as long as you have a line of sight between your TP's.

Can I simply add this router into the current FIOS setup to increase my wifi range/strength?

We moved into this old two story rambler (all added togeter 2400sqft) and I have the coax ran from ONT to the 2nd floor (main area) center spot and currently have a FIOS quantum gateway there. I noticed that my Essential Phone's wifi constantly break while I was in the bedroom (about 20ft away maybe). I want to increase the coverage initially by wifi extender, but it seems it would be break the bandwidth in half. Can I add this mesh wifi router into the current network (with FIOS router still as router)? I think those 3-pack mesh rotuers would be an overkill in my situation.

Thanks a lot.

I do like that it has dual band wifi antennas 2.4 and 5 ghz. Setup with my wyze cams have been difficult lately as they only connect to 2.4. This would give me some added wifi coverage in my home for some dead spots correct? Will it work nice with Google Home mesh?

2.4ghz is farther, but there's more interference. 5 ghz is shorter, but streams the data better. It won't give you extra range, no. I don't know if you can mesh it, somebody else is gonna have to chime in.

If you have an area in your home that isn't served by a Google puck, you can deploy one of these to that area to extend your mesh. And yes - it does mesh with the pucks just fine. Depending on how old the firmware this ships with, you may need to run a manual update (with a usb flash drive) before it lets you mesh though. Had this problem when I got my TP Link a year ago.
