    Interesting, can i ask where you purchased your DSL-AX82U as I was told by ASUS for UK, the end of April was the availability and I am sure others will be interested also ?

    Gaming from my perspective was poor, usually down to QoS and how the Broadcom chipsets handel SMP, the gameplay (Xbox – PC) was framey etc. maybe something ASUS can improve upon over time ?

    (I removed your other post as it was almost a duplicate of this )

    Thanks for the reply

    I found one one Amazon.de – I think it’s actually shipping from Italy?

    So I read more about the 498 standard but from what I found there is no real issue if you are not an ISP yourself, I.e. if I am just a private individual using a non compliant device..

    Could you elaborate on “how the chipset handle SMP?” – I am mainly a pc game so not sure that would also impact that?

     

    Thanks again

     

     

    Edit: also adding that I plan to set up AiMesh with the same model but just router version as I have multiple storeys and old house

    According to DrayTek, BT SIN 498 is required

    https://www.draytek.co.uk/information/our-technology/bt-sin-498

     

    I have not tested Aimesh myself on the DSL-AX82U, but it is planned, so given time should work as well as other ASUS models supporting Aimesh.

    Enjoy your new purchase when it arrives from Italy

    Thanks – very informative

    It sounds like it’s something that can be handled via firmware upgrades?

    Hopefully, but I do not work for ASUS, so only they really know the long term plan

    Edit:

    When your DSL-AX82U arrives, let us know what firmware version it comes pre-loaded with as I can chase ASUS for an updated Firmware

    I thought I would share the latest firmware I have for the DSL-AX82U (DSL-AX82U_3.0.0.4_386_42438-g045583a_cferom_puresqubi.w) with forum members for those lucky few that have the DSL-AX82U already.

    Thanks for that. Do you know what changes there have been from ….41776….  (which is what its box in the UK says it comes with) and ….42438…. ?

    Alas no official change-log was given to myself, but I was testing QoS and DSL Stability at the time and I believe ASUS made improvements in those areas.

    Even though I grabbed the Fritzbox 7530 AX recently, would it be worth grabbing the DSL-AX82U when it shows up in the UK?

    The DSL Broadcom chipset seems to be the same but Wifi 6 looks to be better on this model due to the external antenna system I guess. I’ve been very cautious with ASUS ever since having a bad experience the DSL-AC88U and ROG Phone (regarding software updates, volte support etc) so am I right in thinking that AsusWrt is supporting this model so if ASUS go the same way as the DSL-AC88U we will still have some sort of support for it either way?

    It is here and I received mine this morning. They seem to be around £199-140 inc delivery (dependent on who from and how soon it is wanted).  I expect they will be sub £200 from most places by May

    I know what you mean about the DSL-AC88U . Pre launch they were making claims including link aggregation that were never fulfilled. I think this one is likely to be different though given the pricing and that it should get a lot of buyers as one of the only single box AX solutions.

    The only real negative without having set it all up and being able to see how reliable for me is is the lack of a 2.5 gbe ethernet port.

    AVM Fritz!Box are some of the best supported  hardware and firmware devices in the consumer market. as long as wifi from your 7530 AX reaches the areas you need, then no point switching to any ASUS wifi device,

    AVM .also have a wifi 6 repeater so should help, but a tad expensive.

    AVM lauches FRITZ!Repeater 6000 (ax)

    ASUS are good, but it is early days etc.

    ASUSWRT-Merlin is supported by @GNUton, for the DSL-AX82U, but if ASUS drop the DSL-AX82U, then @GNUton can continue to support the DSL-AX82U, but only in a restricted way as the DSL side could  suffer over time.

    Great news and can I ask where you ordered yours from ? the DSL-AC88U had so much potential on paper, such a shame it never really happened

    Would be interested to know when brought from :)  Does the DSL-AX82U also work with a external modem i.e. can turn off inbuilt one?  If so, this maybe the best option for me at present, use inbuilt modem and then if I ever go FTTP, turn inbuilt modem off and plug cable from FTTP modem into the wan port?

    Need to look at some more reviews but I’m thinking this maybe be simplest option at present and by the time FTTP becomes affordable, might be time for a new router anyway :)

    Thanks

    Tekshop247.com I used Pricespy when  @wizard1’s post  suggested they might be released here soon.  There were about 5 sellers at the time.

    Yes, the DSL-AC88U had promise with the move to a Broadcom chipset, pity it did not work out. I hope (and expect) this will be different. It is particularly good to see GNUton making Merlin available on this one.
