    XT8 Weird wifi password problem

    Yes otherwise all fine. And no, I run an XT8 as a router and 3 XT8 nodes. BTW same thing just happened this morning. All devices kicked off and password mysteriously changed itself, dropping the " mark off the end. A simple fix I am sure will be to pick a different WiFi password that doesn't...

    XT8 Client List

    This seems buggy as hell to me, and I just wondered if others experience the same? For example, I have Sky Q mini boxes connected over ethernet to separate XT8 nodes, shown as connected to the same node. i.e. wrong. I have devices connected over wifi which are in fact over ethernet Some...

    XT8 Weird wifi password problem

    I'll post this here in case anyone else experiences the same problem and cannot find the solution! ... I woke up this morning and looking at my phone, noticed it was on 4G, not connected to my wifi as normal. So I tried to connect, but it steadfastly would not. I tried both 5 and 2.4GHz bands...

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

    As an addendum to this, I should add that having finally got everything set up, I am very pleased with the units. I am getting a reliable connection and decent speeds all around the house. It's been rock solid for several weeks now. My only quandry is this: I want to add another node and would...

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

    OK, I will post this here for the benefit of other poor sods who may find themselves Googling here for a solution. I have spent all day on this, but FINALLY managed to get it all working. I tried everything to get this to work: Updated the new XT8 node firmware Loaded factory defaults Reset by...

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

    OK I finally managed to access the GUI, updated the firmware to latest version and tried again. Still no joy. I am stumped. How can it be this difficult to add a new XT8 to an existing XT8 mesh network. I mean honestly if the same kit is not easily compatible with itself, what on earth are you...

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

    Every single time, I get Unable to add your AIMesh node ZenWifi AX to your AIMesh system due to the following bla bla bla. I have tried factory resetting the node. I would try to update the node firmware, but when connecting to it (wifi or ethernet) all I can get access to is the ****ing setup...

    Release XT8 New Firmware 3.0.0.4.386_25790

    Strangely after weeks of smooth running my XT8's have lost all internet connectivity twice now in the past 48 hours. Once, right in the middle of an important MS Teams call with a valued customer. Not good :-( Maybe there's something going on with my internet connection. I hope so, because that...

    Asus 5GHz channels in the UK?

    OK thanks. I'd read differently somewhere, but I guess it's changed since.

    Asus 5GHz channels in the UK?

    Thanks folks. The thing is, I've been messing about trying to improve coverage and ended up running some diagnostics on my Mac. The Mac said that the N66U was reporting an EU country code, which is in conflict with other items on the network. That's why I ended up checking the channels. So I...

    Asus 5GHz channels in the UK?

    Thanks. I guess what worries me is that perhaps my next router (RT-AC68U perhaps) might be more crippled. It's not just the channels, it's also the TX power. If I have a router which at the moment outputs much more power than the new ones, then perhaps a new router won't deliver the speed and...

    Asus 5GHz channels in the UK?

    Just a quick question: I have an old RT-N66U which has served me well for years, but it's time for an upgrade. I notice my 66U offers me the following 5 GHz channels: 36 40 44 48 52 56 60 64 100 104 108 112 116 132 136 140 This is running Merlin 380.67 (latest version). Is this normal? I...

    RT-N66U 2.4 GHz problem

    Sorry for the late reply folks. After a number of reboots, it's miraculously decided to work fine now. I've no idea what the problem was. (5 GHz was always OK, btw.) Thanks for your help.
