ASUS RT-AC88U Router
Packaging for the AC88U carries a modern vibe to it. On the right side, we have an image of the router while just a slight bit of marketing tucked to the left.
So the first thing I thought of when opening the packaging is the Lamborghini Aventador. ASUS has always had an excellent taste for styling and the mix of a soft black with a touch of red really sets this router off.
Adding to the overall experience of the 88U is the packaging, as you can see here, ASUS has laid out the four antennas to the right while the power adapter and accessories are tucked away.
We finally made it to the scope of delivery and as you can see the ASUS comes with everything you will need including reading materials, antennas, and the power adapter.
Tucked away under the left side of the 88U is the USB 3.0 port, much easier to access for the consumer.
Over to the right, we have LED and Wi-Fi buttons that can enable or disable each of these features.
The top, like many solutions, is chocked full of LEDs. Here we have everything from power to the wireless bands, WAN and USB denoted.
To the business side, we have eight Gigabit LAN ports along with a single WAN port to the right. USB and reset are to the far left as is the WPS button.
Tucked away underneath the soft black plastic is a stunning array of anodized aluminum heat sinks.
After removing the heat sink we find the main CPU, the BCM4709 to the left along with its 512MB of RAM. To the right, we have both BCM4366 radios.
