    My old 4 year old AC68U got on my knees with traditional QoS, I was lucky I got out 90/60 and the OpenVPN server gave about 25/15 not to mention the tough web interface. So I switched to an AC86U last week and am really happy, traditional QoS now gives 95/95 (linespeed), OpenVPN gives about 90/85 and the web interface is lightning fast. See that it supports mu-mimo and that sambons mobile and flat support mu-mimo (according to the flags in the wireless log) but it is rarely both used at the same time so I have no idea of the mu-mimo performance. Smart Connect on the other hand works really well, an SSID for both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands. Saw yesterday when the co-worker came home that her mobile and plate first connected to the 2.4GHz band and then when she came in through the front door they roamed over to the 5GHz band after a few minutes. If I sum it up, the AC86U has long reach and substantially higher performance than my old AC68U, then Smart Connect works really well at least for me. So full pot for AC86U.

      Absolutely the best router! Superior range, safe, lots of features but works just as well just to plug in and run. Have had it for over a year and are constantly amazed at how smoothly everything has worked.

        Upgraded from an AC68U. The speed over WiFi was doubled downstairs where the router is behind 2 walls and tripled upstairs after plugging in the old AC68 where threaded into an AiMesh configuration. The broadband provides 20% more down and 30% more up. A star goes away because it only has 4 network ports.

          Works great for everything. I recommend waiting to buy the router until it goes on sale at least 1590 SEK It often goes down that price.

            works great, home of 85 sqm no worries, run with Merlin firmware, max the line of 250/100.
