News - ASUS Announces DSL-AC88U

If you have DSL at home the new ASUS DSL-AC88U provides an integrated approach to providing internet connectivity from a single device. What makes this guy particularly interesting is that it also has a WAN port, so if you decide to drop the DSL when cable comes to down you won't have to eBay it. Also, while it's not mentioned in the PR, I'd be surprised if it didn't support dual WAN connections from the DSL & WAN ports. If it does, and you need that level of backup this could be just the thing.

Even more interesting is that this looks to be quite a bargin even if you don't need a DSL modem. Its SRP of £220 is less than the £250 DSL-modem-less RT-AC88U that it appears to clone.

News - ASUS RT-AC88U AC3100 802.11AC Router With Eight Gigabit Ports

I haven't seen an official announcement, but there is a product page up for the ASUS RT-AC88U. This is a two radio (1x “1000Mbps” 2.4GHz + 1x “2167Mbps” 5GHz) model based on Broadcom’s hardware, with support for MU-MIMO. What makes it particularly interesting, besides the looks of course, is that that it includes eight Gigabit Ethernet ports and support for Link Aggregation (specific schemes weren’t listed). When official PR is available, we’ll definitely let you know.
