    edimax wifi adaptor can't see networks

    RT-AX88U, main WIFI combined 2.4/5, guest wifi 2.4 only. all devices picking up WIFI ok, except for 1 which uses an edimac b/g/n usb adapter, it doesn't see any of my networks. 2.4 is on channel 7 so can't see an obvious reason why the edimax can't see any of me networks?

    right, so i've got everything configured and running, however that DNS server is still causing a problem. the DHCP server still appears to be giving out 2 DNS server IP addresses, even though i've told it to only serve 1. the 192.168.50.1 address should not be there. any ideas? I'm running...

    does anyone ever have it in a central location? unless they have it plonked in the middle of a room which is in the middle of the house? generally, everyone has there incoming connection on an external wall, and that's usually where the router is going to be. however, the question was more...

    this is very true. i work in IT so troubleshoot issues often. my wifi devices are all fairly recent (Dell XPS, iphone, pixel 4, couple of nvidia shields, and a spattering of IoT devices - hue hub, harmony hub, nest thermostat, nest speakers) of the 15 wifi devices currently connected, 10 are on...

    i'm seeing quite a few bad reviews about the AX88U with regards to WIFI. range being poor, disconnects, poor speeds. i know they are anecdotal and it depends a lot on local environment, but are these misplaced reviews?

    if i can stretch the funds then i'll try and go for the RT-AX88U. looking at recent ebay sold listing for my UDM it looks like i might be able to get as much as what the AX88U costs.

    i guess i could live without hte VLAN, providing the firewall allowed me to properly isloate/restrict such devices from having too much LAN access.

    so i would definitely be out of luck in regards to the VLAN ?

    i currently get 216Mbps down and 21Mbps up, but my line is capable of "up to" 500Mbps down. VLAN support was essentially so i could have the main network 192.168.1.x / IoT 192.168.2.x / Guest WIFI 192.168.3.x - just to keep everything neat and tidy. the RT-AX88U looks to be around £300 so may...

    i've had a Unifi Dream Machine since January and finally had enough of it. Nightmare Machine more like. too many of the advertised features are non-existant or broken. features that are present in product lower down the scale are missing, and you constantly have to be a "beta tester" to get...
