Signal Improvement Solutions (WiFi)
ASUS RT-AC87U Router includes 4 antenna ports to attach external WLAN antennas. See below for different options for high gain and high performance indoor and outdoor antennas to improve the signal strength and indoor coverage.
Pigtails & Connectors for WiFi Antenna Port

This device has 4 RPSMA-Female antenna ports. To mate this port to an N-Male coaxial cable (or an antenna with an N-Male connector) use an RPSMA-Male to N-Female adapter as below:

Because the ASUS RT-AC87U Router device has an external antenna port, you could use the high gain external antenna kits above to boost your signal. However, if your access point is very far, or you need to reach a WLAN station that is very far, or you require a very long cable run to get from the antenna mounting location to the device (long runs lead to large signal loss) consider using an WLAN signal bidirectional amplifier the supported WLAN band to extend your WLAn coverage within regulatory limits
