    Another thing that make me doubt the links even more is that I don’t think ASUS are selling it yet.

    ASUS seem to be dragging their feet with this product.

    I will chase ASUS again, just for an update as to availability and price for the DSL-AX82U

    Ok, so I have spoken with ASUS and they plan to release the DSL-AX82U sometime Q1/2021 and MSRP will be around USD$250.

    Thanks for the update. (I can stop checking every few days)

    Do you think the DSL-AX82U will work on a BT VDSL2 line?

    My current router (a Draytek) shows my BT line as “VDSL2, Profile 17A, Annex A”.
    I know Draytek work with BT VDSL2 but there is little sign of Draytek producing a WiFi 6 router.
    The specs for the DSL-AX82U list only profile 35b and a lot of G99X.X numbers that I don’t fully understand.

    Yes the  DSL-AX82U should work well on any BT ADSL / VDSL2 service, alas the DSL-AX82U will not support G.fast but for you this does not seem to be  a concern

    FYI – on BT VDSL2, the important standard is G.998.4 (G.INP) which if you are connected to a Huawei Cabinet, will enable you to have a slightly higher synch rate (more bandwidth) than expected

    The DSL-AX82U supports G.998.4 (G.INP)

    so finally got the nod to release a few pictures of my DSL-AX82U, will post a video over weekend etc.

    Pictures are of box with specifications etc. (good reference point) incase you are tempted or duped into purchasing a cheap fake alternative. (hence why images are not HD)

    You should concentrate on the box instead of your sofa

    But it is such a nice sofa and comfortable

    A video  of the new DSL-AX82U being unboxed

     

    Must say, the DSL-AX82U feels a solid unit with a smaller footprint than the DSL-AC88U, also unlike DSL-AC88U, the antennas with DSL-AX82U  feel far more secure.

    At least now we know you are married

    And your wife has to be indulgent to bear such a spacy router.
