From everything that I have seen, the new Asus RT-AC87U is not supported (at least fully) by DD-WRT. Other than one source (below), there is no information stating that this router supports DD-WRT.

The router has an interesting setup, where there is a second SoC running the 5ghz band, as described here http://forums.smallnetbuilder.com/showthread.php?t=18415 .

Interestingly, Asus is now claiming DD-WRT support for this exact router this router on their site.-- On their old DD-WRT page, that they have just recently updated with modern model numbers, here http://www.asus.com/us/site/routers/DD-WRT/ .

Is Asus jumping the gun claiming DD-WRT support?

The most incredible thing is ASUS not knowing about their own devices specifications.

RT-N16 only has 128MB memory, not 256MB.

Hi,

I installed it and it works great.
There is a new beta version from today: http://download1.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/downloads/betas/2014/11-20-2014-r25408/asus-rt-ac87u/asus_rt-ac87u-firmware.trx

The only bug I encountered is the 5GHz which is not recognized (monitor traffic, flow rates, ...) but the connection works perfectly.
I have found no significant bug.

This is much better than the asus firmware

Thanks for testing it!
It would be nice to know if that build runs stable or if it has the same driver and reboot problems that happen on RT-AC68U and R7000.
