    spdMerlin spdMerlin - v4.x - speedtest and bandwidth monitoring

    Hey @Jack Yaz , Hope you are well! " spdMerlin includes the required licenses, which must be accepted on install of spdMerlin. As of spdMerlin v4.4.0 the Asus built-in Ookla speedtest binary is used to run the speedtests." - What are the benefits of using ookla built in test vs speedtest-cli?

    What 2.5gb/1gb unmanaged switch to buy in 2022

    Hey everyone, Looking for recommendations for a 5 port 2.5gb/1gb unmanaged switch Gonna be used on multiple ax86u's

    Best ASUS router right now?

    So additional ax86u’s will provide more range and throughput vs ax68u and ax86s, correct?

    Best ASUS router right now?

    Everyone here; After convo above i purchased ax86u. Works great. On 1gb down, 200mbps up connection. Have moved to a new home and need better wifi coverage + throughput from mesh system. This is my current setup (all connected via cat 6); •AX86u - primary •AC86u - mesh •Ac68u - mesh...

    The numbers will be off, sure due to limits on tx power. But all of the ASUS routers should be hampered to the same degree, so whatever one's excel in the US should also excel in the UK?

    Slow Speedtest when AX86U is plugged on 2.5Gbe

    @L&LD , If I am going to be using an ax86u as the main router + ax86u as a mesh node, is there any point in getting the ax86u for the second node over an ax86s (around $75 cheaper)? Throughput + range should be identical, no?

    Slow Speedtest when AX86U is plugged on 2.5Gbe

    ty for advice @L&LD , will be getting 2x ax86u to be used in mesh mode, replacing my 2x ac86u + 1x ac68u in mesh mode based on your advice + general reading, appears those two routers would have substantially more range, throughput + VPN speed than my previous 3 routers

    Updated - AES optimised is what I was intending to refer to. Recommendations?

    Slow Speedtest when AX86U is plugged on 2.5Gbe

    @L&LD Hey bud, See you are still active + spreading value everywhere! RQ, based on ASUS’s current router offering what is their best router for wireless range, throughput (has to be AES optimised)? Still the AX86U? Do u have any tests on ax68u vs ax86u? TY

    VPN policy routing management: per client versus centralized?

    A. Providing you could also have the option to associate all current and new lan devices with a certain vpn client unless set otherwise.
