Cool! If only it supported the T-Mobile version of the 1900 then I would be really excited. I could flash it back to stock firmware, but last time I tried that I failed.

For now, the mesh support is coming to a few routers today in beta, including the ASUS RT-AC68U, RT-AC1900P, RT-AC86U, RT-AC5300, and the ROG Rapture GT-AC5300. with additional support planned for the RT-AC88U and RT-AC3100 later this year.

That's neat thankfully the ac1900 is enough for it entire house without any dead spots.

If Google integrates Google home into it's mesh wifi and drops the price by $75 I'm in.
