amazon: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/produ...AM10XP0JXS - > In stock Jan. 4, 2020 You can order now and it will ship when back in stock

bestbuy: https://www.bestbuy.com/site/asus...Id=6321917 ---Still available!

not sure how long it will last, but it's currently cheaper to buy brand new, than to get amazon's refurbished product. Previous deal was 4$ cheaper at newegg on slickdeals frontpage. And I personally much prefer dealing with amazon or bestbuy, so I am willing to pay 4 dollars for that convenience.

I bought this from Best Buy store for about $40 more on Dec 13, 2019. Called up best buy and they adjusted price and issued a refund for the difference. This post saved my $40! Thank you BKayrac 🙏🏼

Quote from BKayrac :
I doubt the price will ever go much lower for this, maybe a bit under 300 a few years down the road. Routers tend to hold there price points for a LONG time. I just looked up the old netgear r8000 I bought many moons ago, newer version, 230$ on amazon. I paid 300 I believe when it was first released.

Mesh is not a needed thing for the vast majority of people, I have a 2 story 4 bedroom house that a nice router covers just fine, even out to the detached garage. Other than perhaps increasing my wifi signal in the garage, it would provide no benefit to me. Others with different house setups may differ, but for many, you pay a similar amount, with reduced features, for mesh systems, when for 95% of people, they are useless.

This router is specifically for speed, and it's honestly it's a pretty good price for this router, especially with it being so new. wifi 6 is not a necessity, but if you're buying a new expensive router that you plan to keep hopefully for years to come, why not grab it? Especially considering everything will be wifi 6 before long, as it isn't exactly expensive compared to previous generations, such as cellphones ,adaptors, etc.

That said, you guys are nuts most of your arguments are ridiculous when comparing if you want to buy this product or not. They've iron'd out most of the bugs from what I can tell online, so if it interests you, and you have a fast connection, scoop it up and enjoy. If it doesn't, there are tons of far cheaper options available that the vast majority of people would benefit from.

I did however just set mine up, running smoothly so far, so here's to hoping it continues that way Smilie
Are you still running your nighthawk?

I am not, the original r8000 had memory leak issues, needing frequent restarts. I got tired of it fairly quickly. My friend has one as well, still using it, and it STILL needs to be restarted at least once a week, so they still haven't figured it out.

I have the same one and the last 2 months have been hell with it. I've also capped out on the 32 clients max on the channels. I need something that can handle more clients than 32 on the 2.4 channel. Coverage is great on nighthawk.....when it works. But I have about 50 devices on wifi, mostly plugs, lights, and cameras.
Need something new. Don't do any gaming but stream video on multiple devices with the kids.

Honestly the r8000 did not treat me well, I went to an Asus ac88u that worked well, but was starting to have some form of hardware failure over 2 years into it's life.

Which is what lead me to look for reasonable prices on a new router. And found this. It's way overkill, but I try to keep my routers for years, I'd still be using the ac88u if it wasn't starting to randomly drop bands, clients randomly unable to connect etc. Something was going on, farewell poor router.

Picked one up yesterday to replace my Asus GT-5300. Honestly I can't tell a difference. I actually think the signal is slightly weaker. It took over a year for my Asus GT-5300 to finally be really stable after numerous firmware updates. I figure at some point the same thing will happen with the AX11000. I have 2 Samsung S10 devices so I'm at least taking advantage of the Wifi6.

I know you said years (which I am aware is two years or more) but your r8000 was not great, the ac88u kicked the bucket around two years, what makes you inclined to spend money on another high end router?

Somewhat serious question, because it seems routers have a life (minus the wrt54G) and it's not an extended amount of time.

Sometimes it's just luck of the draw, plus between 4k streaming on my tv, computer, gaming, xbox etc. It doesn't hurt to have something that can handle it. Failure is just something that happens with electronics, sometimes you get unlucky. I know people running routers for 5+ years. The r8000 was crap to begin with, the ac88u was a great router until issues starting arising that seemed suspiciously like some form of hardware failure.

It's just one of those things, this router is mostly needed by no one, but if you can afford it, it's certainly not going to hurt you.

Just an update, it appears amazon is sold out, and only has 3rd party sellers with stock.

Bestbuy still has the current sale price available.

Sounds like wait for a rev2. Got the Asus 5300 renewed for like 200$ depending on your wifi 6 devices and needs might be a better deal until this improves.

Quote from wildbird12 :
I do not know where you make that connection.
You said, "While possibly useful in extreme cases WiFi 6 is not yet built or useful for the standard use-case of an apartment/single family home with 10 to 20 devices. This will change once Google/Amazon etc devices incorporate WiFi 6." so those words are your own.

So what is it? (Laughable or these devices may need WiFi6?)
There's no conflict in anything I said. Your assumption that Amazon/Google devices are going to be the changer is what's laughable because there are & will be plenty of devices outside of their product lines that will have the same affect.

I wouldn't call that "readily available".
I can go on Amazon.com right now and order from a variety of different in-stock WIFI 6 adapters, and have my order as soon as the same day. I'd be entertained to hear how you think that isn't "readily available".

I am making no assumptions, I am merely expressing an opinion based on multiple year's work as a network engineer.
Referencing back it seems I mixed you in with those who were making broad assumptions about everyone's needs, which wasn't the case so for that I apologize. It would've been horrible for a network engineer to do so so it's a good thing that was a mix-up.

Also, your assumption that everybody reads each of your posts attacking other people's viewpoints is, well you said it "laughable"...
I don't assume anyone outside of those who reply to my posts read them. If anyone feels "attacked" by me stressing the fact you need more than bandwidth usage to make a proper assessment of networking needs, and further, to offer worthy advice, well... Ok. But, it's not my fault some people don't do their homework and/or think they've got the whole picture by looking at just one corner.
You can disagree with me on those points and call it laughable, no problem. You certainly won't hear me whining about it.

I was in the same boat but Tomato Shibby solved these issues for me. With a USB NAS attached the CPU hovers around 2% with CTF enabled and memory usage is about 50% free regularly. 186 days uptime currently. If you have it laying around still you might give Shibby a go. Totally changed my R8000. Netgear kills their good hardware with horribly programmed firmware unfortunately...

Ok now you are just becoming annoying. If you cannot stand criticism you should not be posting. Whining is exactly what you are doing. You made your point now zip it.

Either you replied to the wrong person or you're terribly confused.
