    New router

    WiFi performance is very dependent on router/hub placement. I ran coax behind a couch to get away from outside wall to center of house and was able to go to single router instead of a mesh. Also think about number and type of walls between router and endpoints. In my experience, RF travels...

    What happens with two different ASUS routers in ai-mesh?

    I have 2 floors @ 2500 sq. ft. and bought an AX92 awhile back when the WAN port on my AC88 went flaky. I put the AC88 in as a 2nd floor wireless node with the AX92 vs. just the AX92 by itself. After making the location of the AX92 more central, I didn’t need the AC88. Net-Net: Location...

    Router to wall socket or grounded surge

    Damn, stuff is getting expensive. The APC 1500VA’s I have are 50% more expensive now.

    Fortinet Fortigate 40F for our small business?

    Fortinets have horsepower to burn. Been running at work for years serving 10k+ nodes on multiple campuses. IPS/IDS is decent.

    Which router to use as Primary?

    I took my AC88 out of my AiMesh as an upstairs node and boxed it up as a spare. Performance is better with the solo AX92 downstairs. 1400 sq. ft. main floor and 900 sq. ft. upstairs. 20-25 devices.

    Question about wifi6 dual vs tri band

    I run an AX92 with my old AC88 as an wireless AiMesh node (flaky WAN port). The only drawback is no Merlin.

    Delayed internet connection...

    Is this with 5GHz connections? If so, is this on a DFS channel?

    Advice on upgrading setup

    Try moving the upstairs router closer to the stairwell down the wall. You are partially obstructed by load bearing walls and plumbing. I did this to get a bathroom out of LOS from my AX92 to Master Bedroom and it made a big stability and throughput difference. AX92 as AiMesh main and AC88 as...

    RT-AX92U add a node?

    IMHO, looks like a bad WiFi chip in the fire stick. Glad you found a work around. Electronics do fail in strange ways.

    RT-AX92U add a node?

    Hmmmm, if you are line of sight I don’t think adding more complexity will resolve your issue. I would be looking at the router logs for anything happening at the time you have an issue. Otherwise you may be better getting a new Fire stick. Really guessing at this point.
