Overview[edit]

2167 Mbps max PHY rate per each 80MHz wide 5GHz channel,
1000 Mbps max. PHY rate for the 40MHz wide 2.4GHz channel = 3100 Mbps class

"RT-AC88U REV 5.01" and "1517" is silkscreened on the board.

DFS certification and VHT80+80 support were added with a C2PC request on 3/6/2019.

Actual support would probably need to come from a firmware update.

The first page of the DFS Test Report lists two manufacturers: Askey and Compal.

  • Differences between the three models covered by this FCC certification
are described in the DFS Test Report as follows:
Model No. LAN Port Heat sink color
RT-AC88U 8 LAN ports Silver, Red
RT-AC3100 4 LAN ports Silver, Black
RT-AC88R 8 LAN ports Silver, Red
