Asus AC router使用一問

小弟打算買Asus AC系列router, 睇中左AC56S同埋AC66U
而家用緊PCCW 500mb寬頻,打算透過新router分俾家中多部電腦、平版及手機用,當中包括一部iMac(駁RJ45上網)、一部Thinkpad W520、一部Macbook Air及一部Mac Mini(行wifi),
還有一部小米盒子、幾部手機及iPad會駁wifi,其中Macbook Air、Mac Mini、三部手機同兩部iPad可以行AC standard wifi
響上述的使用情況下,買邊款較適合?AC56S夠用嗎?
請各高人解答,萬分感謝!

屋企唔大咪AC56s,如果大而需要wifi cover 好d就AC66

The CPU of AC56S is the cut cost version and cannot use Merlin firmware (because the CPU is no longer high grade Broadcom chipset). If AC68U is being too expensive, then AC66U is a better choice. (AC56U was having the same CPU as AC68U)

其實AC56S都係用Broadcom A9,不過係單春姐

Oh~~ you are right! Since Merlin doesn't support AC56S, I thought it's no longer Broadcom CPU anymore.

To be honest, Merlin firmware is the major reason I would choose Asus over the others. If Merlin write the firmware for netgear, I afraid I may switch for netgear.

But the official website from Merlin does not support AC56S wor
https://github.com/RMerl/asuswrt-merlin

At this time, the supported devices are:

RT-AC56U
RT-N66U
RT-AC66U
RT-AC68U
RT-AC68P
RT-AC87U
RT-AC3200

And the link for softpedia is fake!
