    XT8 FW 3.0.0.4.386.26044 breaks Sonos

    As an FYI - I have noticed a HomePod mini disconnecting with this latest version. Not sure if others are seeing this too.

    XT8 FW 3.0.0.4.386.26044 breaks Sonos

    I'm curious as to why one would need to wait 24 hours! Suggests really awful firmware if that is the case.

    [Maylyn - Networking] ASUS ZenWiFi XT8

    I sadly moved away from my fibre provider as I moved home, however the XT8 worked at the full claimed fibre speeds (which in my case were 1 gbps). In your case I do have following questions: 1. How is your fibre provider configured? Do they supply a router, or are they just providing an ONT...

    Asus XT8 - is it possible to buy one AX6600 and add another later

    Depends on the market. Here in the UK some distributors sell single packs.

    Asus ZenWifi XT8 strangeness

    Completely agree. IoT probably has a decade still to catch up to modern standards. I don't think you necessary however need to force a specific channel - you just need to make sure the extended channels on the 2.4 band that only some countries provide access to are excluded. It's basically a set...

    Which mode have you selected to change it from AI Mesh to just an AP? I don’t think I saw a real mode to do this! Also what channels/bands config are you using between different APs?

    Asus ZenWifi XT8 strangeness

    I can't speak for the 2.4 ghz bands as they in my case are really low priority. The testing I have done to date seemed to show I could get 50mbps fairly easy even with 12+ hours or more of uptime. I'm more worried about the 5 ghz bands. FWIW, since splitting the wifi network into three...

    Asus ZenWifi XT8 strangeness

    I assume you mean the reset where you place a pin into the reset hole at the bottom, hold until the amber light flashes and then leave it a bit, turn it off and then back on. That is at least the method I use unless you tell me there is another one which involves the WPS button instead. I do...

    Asus ZenWifi XT8 strangeness

    We recently purchased the XT8 which I have to admit I am not that impressed with based on current experiences. Firstly there appears to be no way to leave the router in full tri-band mode when use use ethernet to pipe data from one node to the next which simply does not make sense. Wireless...
