    Mesh network questions (Deco M5)

    @OzarkEdge Okay, so I tried all you suggested and here are the results: 1. Hooking up a laptop to the switch directly, it gives an IP address that seems routable (77.85.xxx.xxx). Hooking the laptop to the router (which is connected to the switch), I get a 192.168.1.xxx IP address. In both...

    Mesh network questions (Deco M5)

    I think it's getting more clear now. May I also ask, what is the difference in running the Mesh system in regular mode compared to AP mode? And will I be able to to use it in such mode if I wire it to the ISP box directly instead of the AC66U? And by retire I guess you mean to not use the AC66U...

    Mesh network questions (Deco M5)

    Frankly, I don't :) As mentioned in my previous topic, my main goal is to have a fast connection on floor 1 (where my office is) and less dead spots in general on each of the two floors above, also to be able to use a single SSID to connect to, so when I move between floors to not have to...

    Mesh network questions (Deco M5)

    Have to check that. If there's a difference in IP range, what would that mean? Interesting thing is that there's a wall in between the router and the node (have a cable hole in the wall where the UTP cable connecting both goes through). So I doubt they are interfering, but will check if...

    Mesh System Suggestion between ASUS and TP-LINK. Help appreciated!

    Thanks a lot for all the replies. To mention a few things again: 1. Indeed, buying 2 x AC86U is definitely out of my budget. I don't know if it would be better to just get one AC86U instead of the whole 3 pack mesh and use my AC66U as an AP, but honestly hope the mesh would work better. 2...

    Mesh System Suggestion between ASUS and TP-LINK. Help appreciated!

    Thanks a lot for the comprehensive reply. Its a two floor apartment with each level being around 170 square meters (1800 sq feet). There are places where there's almost no reception. I've been using some Xiaomi USB repeaters that actually improved the reception a bit, but I need to connect to...

    RT-AC66U issues after a firmware update

    Thanks, will give it a read. But in other words, it won't work by simply installing an older firmware via Rescue mode?

    RT-AC66U issues after a firmware update

    Hey everyone. I've had an AC66U for probably 5 years now and experienced no problems with it whatsoever. Recently I had to relocate my office to a different room, which is a bit far from the unit itself, so connection wasn't as good as before. Decided to finally mess with the settings a bit...

    ASUS RT-AC66U Tweaking and Optimization

    Hi guys, as a new owner of the AC66u I have searched a lot for some tips about optimizing it for best performance and ended up finding almost nothing. So I`m starting this thread (sorry if it has been already posted, but really could not find it) in search of some advice. Today I updated to...

    Hi and sorry for the same old topic, but its really urgent... I`v read so many reviews about both these routers and I have a deadline of ordering one tomorrow. The reviews in smallnetbuilder are a bit too technical for me so I need an easy answer of which one of the two models to chose. It`s...
