    Merlin Firmware For XT8 ZenWifi?

    Now that Merlin exists for the XT8, what are people's experiences? Looking potentially at switching over, but want to hear from others first.

    Release ASUS ZenWiFi XT8 Firmware version 3.0.0.4.386.46061 (2022/01/14)

    Are there specific devices falling off? I know in my case my IoT network (2.4) needs to be very basic with everything on very basic vanilla settings or many of those devices lose connectivity. Non l-IoT devices stick to the 5.1 and 5.2 networks depending on whether they are ac or ax devices. I...

    Release ASUS ZenWiFi XT8 Firmware version 3.0.0.4.386.46061 (2022/01/14)

    Have you tried a WPS method reset and a new manual setup?

    Release ASUS ZenWiFi XT8 Firmware version 3.0.0.4.386.46061 (2022/01/14)

    I personally initially did a dirty update so the file that was downloaded was via the updater tool. That said, I reverted to WPS reset method when mDNS issues continued to appear. Reverting solved those issues which for IoT is important in our house. I can only see one firmware file listed on...

    Release ASUS ZenWiFi XT8 Firmware version 3.0.0.4.386.46061 (2022/01/14)

    Initially did a dirty upgrade which I really should have thought twice about as I was already having so many mDNS issues after my last dirty upgrade. Those of you how want to use the auto-upgrade firmware feature really should think twice before enabling this as Asus simply don't have this side...

    ASUS Zenwifi XT8 Node Causes Internet to Drop

    For most, this is not a valid workaround. I'm still going to strongly urge you to actually bother trying the hard reset method plus manual resetting up the device. I know it is slow and painful, but again I can't stress how this took away some issues that I have experienced for over 12 months...

    ASUS Zenwifi XT8 Node Causes Internet to Drop

    I would recommend strongly that you try it. If you are happy with your work around, then it’s probably not worth complaining here in the first place. :)

    ASUS Zenwifi XT8 Node Causes Internet to Drop

    Strange. I have not seen this behaviour at all. In fact doing a full hard reset and manually setting everything up (i.e. not using config backup restore) managed to sort the issues I have been having for many many months. I should add however that the current 43170 firmware is the first version...

    AX86U or XT8 (2 pack)?

    I take all reviews on Amazon with a pinch of salt, as well over half of the reviews on any tech product will be for another version of the product range, so often makes zero sense. In fact Amazon reviews on any technology are hardly worth reading because of the way they package them together...

    Asus ZenWifi XT8 - wifi speeds after latest firmware update

    I have found the latest firmware to be extremely solid, but ONLY after doing a full factory hard reset. I then had to setup everything manually. Doing a simple upgrade only cause the router to be extremely flaky. FWIW, this latest firmware drop appears to finally solve a whole bunch of weird...

    Asus ZenWifi AX - no internet

    With the latest firmware recently rolled out, make sure you have done a full factory hard reset before setting up everything manually again. I had to ensure I followed that process before I got the router to remain stable.

    AX86U or XT8 (2 pack)?

    Personally I am now loving the XT8, but it has taken a year of pain to get to this point where Asus pretty much treated us all as guinea pigs. Latest firmware works a treat.

    ASUS Zenwifi XT8 Node Causes Internet to Drop

    Personally I found the same issues until I did a full hard reset and setup everything again manually. The latest firmware from Asus is actually the best I have tested ever since I did a full factory hard reset. I used to get drops all the time, and now I have none. Having said the above, I...
