I have been a user of ASUS routers since 2013, based on upgrade policy.
In that time I have recommended many friends and Ã‚*family to purchase ASUS routers
Given the lack of updates for the GT AC5300, I have removed this router from my mesh network.
I am looking to upgrade to Wifi 6 and possibly waiting for Wifi 7, so it would be a great opportunity to hear from the ASUS on the upgrade policy for its products.
If this is not available, I may have to consider the router options based third party firmware support such as Merlin.
