    Where to connect the ethernet cable from switch to ZenWiFi XT8 in AP mode?

    I connected th main node via the WAN port and it's working now. But it's connected to my main switch. Same goes to the mesh node. My network is ISP modem in bridge mode -> mini PC router -> unmanaged switch -> main and mesh AiMesh nodes in AP mode. I got confused by this page where the main node...

    Asus ZENWIFI XT8 - AP Mode using switch

    Hey! Have you found the solution to this? I'm in the same boat now. I didn't follow the diagram in Scenario 3. Instead, I connected the main XT8 node via the WAN port from my switch. I also connected the mesh node via the WAN port from the switch. Somehow this works for me. But I'm afraid I'm...

    Where to connect the ethernet cable from switch to ZenWiFi XT8 in AP mode?

    Hi, I'm sorry if this has been asked before. But I'm confused with the resources available on the Asus website. I just switched my Asus ZenWiFi XT8 mesh pair to AP mode. Where do I connect the ethernet cable coming from my switch to back of the main XT8 node? Do I connect it to its WAN port? Or...

    2 86U's AiMesh or Xt8?

    I have been using a pair of XT8s since April and I wish I did what the others here said, do it right once. But of course I didn't know it at the time of purchase. The XT8 worked for a solid week. Then a series of firmware updates just broke my network. I've since used a wired backhaul but even...

    That's unfortunate. Thanks for the reply. I'll stick with 42095 for now.

    Has your router/mesh settled down on 43181? Or are you back to 42095? Thinking of trying 43181 now that my backhaul is wired to get the security updates and see if QoS have improved. Thanks!

    Release Asus XT8 - 3.0.0.4.386.43181 - 2021/06/17

    I agree with this! The reason I got this mesh router a few months ago is because I needed a faster one than my TP-Link Deco 5 and the CT8 and XT8 came highly recommended by Wirecutter. But these firmware updates breaking the router's basic functions is just too much. The return period has...

    Release Zenwifi XT8 Firmware 3.0.0.4.386_43170

    I feel you. Mine is just about 2 weeks. So I experienced a week of good connection and after updating twice since last week, it was all troubleshooting.

    Release Zenwifi XT8 Firmware 3.0.0.4.386_43170

    Thank you for the explanation. After downgrading to 42095, I haven't experienced that 10 second packets lost. So I hope everything is OK now.

    Release Zenwifi XT8 Firmware 3.0.0.4.386_43170

    I'm experiencing exactly this after upgrading to 43170. My file server, which was very stable just a couple of weeks ago, started dropping connections. And I was getting >1.5% packet loss using ping. There would be >10 timeouts in a row. I thought I was losing my mind. @kamil666 pointed me to...
