    ZenWifi XD4 Don't Work Don't Buy!

    As I have stated, the XD4 devices will ONLY work in the configuration you are using. However, if you review the advertised functionality of AiMesh components advertised on ASUS websites you will see that they make statements regarding the list of devices that are AiMesh compatible. My router...

    ZenWifi XD4 Don't Work Don't Buy!

    I have found a way of factory resetting without the gui. What a pity Asus wouldn't direct me or offer any assistance. In accordance with ASUS policy, the website at: https://www.asus.com/support/FAQ/1039078 details an incorrect procedure. Maybe one day ASUS will be able to get something right...

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

    I have sent 45 emails directly to ASUS support and another five using their website, detailing obvious software flaws when attempting to get AiMesh working between the RT-AX58U router and XD4 nodes. Needless to say whatever I have tried has failed because of software issues such as turning off...

    RT-AX58U Loses All Wired Device Connections

    I have replaced the Cisco splitters with TP-Link ones, thinking older protocols or device capabilities may be the problem. I have found no difference. I have also tried the gui reboot and it does the same.

    RT-AX58U Loses All Wired Device Connections

    Hi I have found that if I need to power reboot the RT-AX58U router (constant AiMesh issues, don't ask!) I lose all the wired connectivity for the networked devices. For instance my Blu-Ray player that connected fine beforehand, now states 'network error' and 'no internet'. My Sky+ box states 'On...

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

    I am waiting for Asus to explain why the XD4 in wireless router mode and with both WiFi channels radio on doesn't have a wireless tab in the Client List and cannot recognise any WiFi devices attached to it while they show up on my RT-AX58U router. With no WiFi functionality there can be no...

    ZenWifi XD4 Don't Work Don't Buy!

    I found over 27 obvious software flaws, some minor which have escaped logical testing and some because they can never have been tested with the RT-AX58U router and XD4 devices. The worst one is that when using the RT-AX58U AiMesh to connect to a XD4 node as a wireless repeater, the screen...

    RT-AX58U Device Refresh Rate

    Network is working fine when devices connected. Not fine when devices dropping out though. Also, I have proven when trying to use AiMesh that the gui has many many problems associated with dodgy software.

    RT-AX58U Device Refresh Rate

    I can assure you that sending ANY feedback through the ASUS feedback tab just gets ignored. I have found them to be ignorant! They ask for reams of data which you provide then NEVER get back top you. If you request a progress update they NEVER get back to you. They seem to think that customers...

    RT-AX58U Device Refresh Rate

    The devices I have are mixture of wireless and wired. The wired devices are through one or more switches. The wireless direct or through one or more repeater nodes. I do not believe this makes any difference to the gui as one wired device is listed even though I have turned it off, and the...

    RT-AX58U Device Refresh Rate

    The default setting is 'NO'. Changing to 'YES' comes up with some info about only HTTPS is supported. I think you are going well off topic. I have access to the gui. The means of access to the gui is not in question.

    RT-AX58U Device Refresh Rate

    I just enter the IP address 192.168.1.1 there is no associated HTTP as far as I am aware. I do know that there is a problem with Firefox that ignores the settings and defaults to HTTPS before the IP address meaning the router cannot be accessed. Isn't the software running from the router and...

    RT-AX58U Device Refresh Rate

    Says it all really! I have found the gui takes ages to update and while doing so displays some absolute garbage! Say I add a wired device previously setup and working. It can take a very long time - I am talking 20 minutes - before being added to the 'Network Map | View List'. While waiting and...

    Absolutely unable to add new XT8 node to existing XT8 network. Any ideas?

    Chippy Boy The XD4 node you want is the 90IG05N0-MO3R50. This is the router with the WAN/LAN port not the wireless devices.

    ZenWifi XD4 Don't Work Don't Buy!

    Hi all. Last year I purchased an ASUS RT-AX58U router with the intention of using this with XD4 nodes for whole house WiFi. Because of delays in rolling out XD4 (ASUS blame Covid) I have only just been able to get my hands on the XD4 devices. DO NOT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE! The first set of three...
