    Release Asuswrt-Merlin 386.1 is now available

    I also have 2.4ghz clients (Shelly) dropping off with 386 but it could well be a bug with the latest Shelly FW.

    AiMesh2 Multicast IoT over wireless node

    I have a star mesh config, with the AX88U router being connected to two AX88U nodes via Ethernet and one AX56U via wireless: With an IoT server (receiver) wired to one of the wired nodes, and binding to a multicast address (Shelly CoIoT multicast), I can only receive the multicast traffic...

    Multicast with AIMesh

    In my setup, I meant the switch of the Asus router, not an additional piece of equipment. Your question about adding switches in between should probably work as long as they don't do any magic filtering.

    Weatherproof aiMesh node

    ASUS RT-AX88U Firmware version

    New FW works fine for me, getting measured 800mbps on my 802.11ac MacBook Pro. Only problem I have is that somehow ipv4 pings to the internet do not work anymore (eg ping It does work from the "Network Tools" section of the router though, so its definitely not a ISP modem problem. The...
