The RT-AX88U is an exciting networking device. It has tons of useful features, excellent Wi-Fi coverage, fast performance and is easy to use. Due to the lack of Wi-Fi 6 clients, though, its time hasn’t truly arrived yet, especially, considering the cheaper alternative, namely the RT-AC88U. That said, if you need a high-end router right now, chances are you’ll be happy with the RT-AX88U. Otherwise, it’d make more sense to wait till Wi-Fi 6 clients are available.
