ASUS New DSL-AX82U Modem Router Combo / Wifi 6
At long last I am now able to (officially) confirm that ASUS are in the process of releasing there latest addition to the DSL modem and router family, the DSL-AX82U.
I am still awaiting final specs but the DSL-AX82U is loosely based upon the ASUS RT-AX82U running the latest (UKTH) Broadcom BCM63178 DSL chipset supporting ( 35b) Supervectoring
Alas the DSL-AX82U will not support G.fast (unlike the DSL-AC88U) but does support 35b Supervectoring and will be the first wi-fi 6 modem router combo to be released in the
QTR 3of 2020 in the world as far as I am aware. Edit; (4th QTR 2020)
Pic of RT-AX82U (for visual reference) and hopefully more details from ASUS shortly
(P.S.) this time unlike with DSL-AC88U, the ASUS (DSL Team) have proprietary access over coding etc. lessons learnt from the DSL-AC88U I feel by ASUS

Looking nice, wonder how many people will go for it after experience with previous dsl devices 😉June 25, 2020 at 6:45 pm #8159
Yes, will be an interesting marketing exercise by ASUS,

I have asked ASUS for a guide as to the price for the new DSL-AX82U, ASUS have responded to say that they expect the price of the DSL-AX82U to closely match that of the new RT-AX82U when released, but way to many variables for a precise value currently.
Price below from one site only as a guide for RT-AX82U prices.
$349.99 Canadian Dollars
Sounds way to cheap to myself for UK, but Canadian VAT is only 5% (ish) ?

Ha! Not a chance after the nightmare of the Dsl-Ac88u. What a joke that thing was. I switched to a rmerlin supported router after it became obvious Asus were incapable of releasing decent firmware for that joke of a router. Thankfully I managed to get rid of it on ebay (sorry to that person lol).
Rmerlin firmware is so much better that you’d have to be nuts to buy one of these dsl models over a rmerlin supported model.July 2, 2020 at 12:24 am #8212dodgydrainsParticipant

Totally agree with Cozak. Both the DSL-AC68U and then the DSL-AC88U were pretty bad products for me. At least the 68U continued to receive firmware support but the 88U support was non-existent. Asus treated customers pretty badly.
The DSL-AX82U would have to be an amazing product with great support for me to ever buy a combined modem/router from Asus again.
Why no G.fast? Does that mean it is not fully for the UK market?

The DSL-AC88U was aimed at countries that supported the G.fast and 35b and others standards, this time the DSL-AX82U is aimed at countries that only support 35b Supervectoring. keeps it simpler I suppose.
We lucked out this time, or maybe a blessing ;-)

Looks like the DSL-AX82U is now on the ASUS website

For me, having bought the useless DSL-88U, Asus have burnt their bridges. Not having a firmware update for nearly two years on the 88U and leaving it with many functions missing means my trust in this brand is gone. I could go on for ages about how poor the 88U is – the key issue being the low synch rates on FTTN – all I can say is if you are thinking of buying one – don’t!August 30, 2020 at 9:43 am #9415
Totally agree, the DSL-AC88U was not the way to do business and how not to treat its customers.
Alas big businesses do get it wrong, and they did

1 – website does not use HTTPS
2 – Too cheap to be genuine
3 – Read this page if you need further evidence:

Funny that – I did notice this the other day, alas I clicked on link and do a search online and can no longer gain access, hopefully dodgy site or content if site has been pawned / hacked etc. has been removed
Very suspect, but price is good
Edit: just dropped ASUS an email and indeed the DSL-AX82U will not be available until end of year 2020.

Wow, only £28! http://www.streetpeople.co.uk/802-asus-new-dsl-ax82u-modem-router-combo-dnbjog-2417.html Beware: 1 – website does not use HTTPS 2 – Too cheap to be genuine 3 – Read this page if you need further evidence: http://www.streetpeople.co.uk/shippinginfo.html
Another site selling the DSL-AX82U – for £28 (Assume it is fake also) ;-)
