ASUS announces Lyra Trio 802.11AC AC1750 Dual Band Mesh Wi-Fi System

It is great to see home Wi-Fi companies focused on mesh systems. Repeaters work, but they add a level of complexity and wonkiness that most people don’t want to deal with. The new ASUS Lyra Trio’s 3×3 MIMO pyramid antenna system claims coverage for homes up to 5400 square feet and an easy setup. And as a bonus, as it runs ASUS’s AiMesh, it should also slot into your existing setup – as long as you’re running an ASUS router. No word on pricing or availability yet though. Glad to see this market heat up.
