    Static IP for ASUS nodes (XD4N) on ZenWiFi AX Mini Mesh AP mode Command Line?

    ASUS have advised I should return the XD4 for a full refund or replacement. It appears they are unwilling to repair the flaws in their software and until they do AiMesh will not work properly. Should have bought Netgear!

    Static IP for ASUS nodes (XD4N) on ZenWiFi AX Mini Mesh AP mode Command Line?

    Its not that simple, i'm afraid. I am already running the cable as you suggest. I managed to find a contact from ASUS that is (hopefully) assisting me. The issue appears to be more software bugs that you can throw a stick at! After getting a success message for both nodes added to AiMesh they...

    Static IP for ASUS nodes (XD4N) on ZenWiFi AX Mini Mesh AP mode Command Line?

    There are three ways to configure the nodes: 1. With the XD4R set as the only router and the two XD4N as WiFi repeater nodes. 2. With the XD4R set as AP mode connctde to my own router and the two XD4N as WiFi repeater nodes. 3. With the XD4R and the two XD4N as WiFi repeater nodes. As method 1...

    Static IP for ASUS nodes (XD4N) on ZenWiFi AX Mini Mesh AP mode Command Line?

    Don't try using the ASUS Router app! It finds the WiFi network but cannot connect to devices on it. If you attempt to set IP Binding you cannot enter a valid MAC code beyond one digit; it defaults to a single colon : and thats it. Yet another ASUS software bug. It's no wonder we can get anything...

    Static IP for ASUS nodes (XD4N) on ZenWiFi AX Mini Mesh AP mode Command Line?

    I too am having issue with the nodes. I want to use the XD4R wired as a backhaul to my RT-AX58U router. The XD4R is auto set to IP 192.168.50.1 and RT-AX58U to 192.168.1.1 so they won't work together. I have changed the IP of the XD4R to 192.168.1.2 but now it won't find the XD4N nodes, because...

    ASUS XD4 WiFi Backhaul Connection To ASUS Router

    OK So I did a lot of searching and found the following method worked for me regarding the nodes. This assumes the RT-AX58U will remain as the main router and the three nodes configured as AIMesh nodes. An ASUS website shows how to update the AiMesh node firmware once they have been connected...

    ASUS XD4 WiFi Backhaul Connection To ASUS Router

    Hi I need some help and advice please. I have finally managed to get a three unit Zen Wifi XD4 in black to improve the WiFi around my house. I currently have an RT-AX58U router. All are Wifi 6 ax compatible units. All the information from ASUS I have found shows adding the three units as WiFi...

    Asus RT-AX58U Bug Problems Wih Install

    Due to zero response, I trawled through the internet on my phone and found the following worked. There may be better ways to resolve the obvious software bug, but this worked for me after much trial and error: How to get back a stuck Asus RT-AX85U router installed with the default supplied...

    Asus RT-AX58U Bug Problems Wih Install

    After connecting my Asus RT-AX58U to my new ISP, I made some changes to try it with a second ax capable router used as a WiFi 6 extender. I had previous success with a non ax Vodafone router and my new ISP Technicolor one is much faster so was hoping for an increase is speed. (While I am still...

    Why No Intranet Or Wifi?

    That is my point though! My intranet/streaming should not be affected but it is. So how do I prevent it?

    Why No Intranet Or Wifi?

    I am sorry but I didn't realise all the Asus router models (or those of other makes) behaved differently! I am using an Asus RT-AX58U. I don't know the firmware, but it is the manufacturer's default. Under the new ISP recommendation I have it disconnceted at the moment while the broadband speed...

    Why No Intranet Or Wifi?

    Hi Having transitioned between ISPs I found that I had no internet for two days (thanks Vodafone!). What I found during this time was that my Internet led was showing red, as expected, but at the same time the router would not pass anything at all!. I hard wire stream videos and music from my PC...

    Increase WiFi Speed for 4k streaming

    Unless of course using it solves the problem, in which case there is nothing but benefit!

    Increase WiFi Speed for 4k streaming

    Tech 9 asking for help assumes that the person offering help knows what they are talking about. Opinions which are completely incorrect are not helpful, they just waste everyone's time. If you read on, you will see that your 'help' is not only wrong but completely off the mark! In the meantime...

    Increase WiFi Speed for 4k streaming

    Thanks for your feedback. Tech 9 I'm sorry, but you are way off the mark! 4K is reporting 102.3 Mb when it stutters (the max. of the TV ethernet). Most of the time the average is 40Mb. 10Gb is NOT required! I suspect that 200Mb would be a more reasonable figure to deal with the occasional max...
