    Aimesh 2.0 with separate channels on wired backhaul

    I raised this with Asus as a feature request a while ago. It would be especially useful if you have multiple clear channels on 2.4Ghz where bandwidth is particularly limited.

    Release ASUS RT-AX86U Firmware version 3.0.0.4.386.42840

    First impressions on my mesh nodes is positive - I had 2.4Ghz devices unhappy on the previous version, but everything seems to have connected currently.

    Ax88u wifi problems

    I suspect your problem is Protected Management Frames being required, set this to one of the other two available settings as it's not needed unless you want to use AX mode. Also try turning off Target Wake Time and Universal Beamforming. General best practice is to leave Universal Beamforming...

    Is AX86U firmware going to get better?

    Asus are pretty good at fixing bugs and evolving the functionality and features. They provide updates more frequently than many other brands in my experience, and also support their older models for quite a long time. One of the best things is that they use a common code base for most of their...

    Release Asuswrt-Merlin 386.2 is now available

    It's a bug in the Cake implementation that has been fixed here https://github.com/RMerl/asuswrt-merlin.ng/commit/b334f7df256a9763a90a9ee80e6b01979b44449b and should be in the next release. In the meantime you can install CakeQOS-Merlin alpha and use the Custom Download/Upload Parameter...

    Input on ways to implement IOT network

    If Guest Network 1 worked for everyone that would be great, but I'm one of those that has issues when I try to enable it. The other challenge is that some of my IOT devices are ethernet connected - the Philips Hue Bridge for example has no WiFi capability, therefore there needs to be a solution...

    Release Asuswrt-Merlin 386.2 is now available

    In Cake, and the standalone implementation you can set zero bandwidth in a single direction to achieve unlimited in that direction. I'm looking to achieve that so I have bandwidth shaping on my upload but unlimited on my download as my ISP seems to manage the inbound contention quite well, and...

    Release Asuswrt-Merlin 386.2 is now available

    Not quite. Zero turns off the bandwidth shaping but leaves the queue management elements functioning. Auto Bandwidth is where Cake tries to calculate the bandwidth and shape to that - which isn’t very successful. It means you can turn off downstream shaping but leave upstream active. Both...

    Release Asuswrt-Merlin 386.2 is now available

    Hi @RMerlin - I just tried to turn off download shaping in Cake by setting the bandwidth value to zero ( 0 ). Unfortunately the field validation doesn't allow this despite the error message saying that 0 is a valid entry.

    Release Asuswrt-Merlin 386.2 is now available

    Might be a long shot, but during the betas I had a similar issue with some of my devices which wouldn't connect to my AX86Us until I turned off universal beamforming.

    Guest Network 1 on 386.2 Beta 3

    Hhhmm, it’s really a mixed bag then. Maybe the difference is that I’m using a RT-AX88U as my main router. Not sure why that would have an impact though. If I can get some time with everyone offline, I might try swapping in an AX86U and see if my experience is better.

    Guest Network 1 on 386.2 Beta 3

    Thanks, I wasn’t sure whether the 386.42095 GPL was known good or bad. I’ll wait a bit longer then.
