DSL-AC68U/R and DSL-AC88U - AiMesh
I have spoken with ASUS and they have informed me that in May-June 2018, the DSL-AC68U/R will support the AiMesh Service.

ASUS AiMesh details in following link - "AiMesh" -

Alas for the DSL-AC88U, the AIMesh is not yet fully considered.  Sad

Pity, that would save me spending money to for a repeater now. I would have waited if the DSL-AC88U was on the list.

I think ASUS DSL Team are just being cautious, I am sure if the DSL-AC68U supports AiMesh, shortly, they will do their upmost do also with the DSL-AC88U.

why DSL-AC88U is not fully considered ? because of of Chipset ?

I believe so, until now and this includes the DSL-AC68U, all ASUS Routers offering AIMesh have dedicated Broadcom wifi chipsets and a main Broadcom CPU, the DSL-AC88U has the BCM 63138 chipset which is a combined chipset that handle both DSL and Router functions, so lots of dev work required by Broadcom before they decide if this is possible.

This Forum was originally created to provide a means to allow users of ASUS (SOHO) Routers - both Wireless and xDSL (modem) based to freely communicate within a Community type forum where members can work together towards sharing experience, knowledge and ideas, I have recently also been asked to include Netgear and AVM wifi / modem based routers for discussion. All I ask is that we are all fair and reasonable, we try to add value where we can and not use this forum for other non community agendas and lastly, please free to dop me a message offline if you feel in anyways I can improve upon this site etc.
