    Asus AP mode "light" possible? (use behind Sophos Firewall)

    Emphasis on "if" ;-) I know that buying a Sophos AP would solve the problem, but I am in doubt, it has the same coverage like the 88u - I need this for my various musiccast speakers. I am using xg 18. I am really fed up now with the sophos ...

    Asus AP mode "light" possible? (use behind Sophos Firewall)

    I have it virtualized on Hyper V - I managed to get it working, however the DHCP on the Sophos is a complete mess. Once I created a bridge between physical and virtual NICS to serve them all together, the Asus Router didn't want to connect any longer via DHCP, nor static IP. So yes in theory its...

    Asus AP mode "light" possible? (use behind Sophos Firewall)

    So I disabled NAT, enabled the route in the test router (not yet Sophos) , and so far it works. Guest network separated. Clients from LAN1 can access LAN2 (Asus) - you do have to forward the ports though. Thanks a lot :-) Last question: Do you know by chance, how to unify DHCP for both networks...

    Asus AP mode "light" possible? (use behind Sophos Firewall)

    Thanks @ColinTaylor - NAT might be the secret ingridient I didnt think about. I'll try and let you know.

    Asus AP mode "light" possible? (use behind Sophos Firewall)

    Yes - and I was wondering if and if yes, how to "open" the router to the firewall, so the firewall can identify individual users, as far as I understand disabling DHCP doesnt really help, because I would have to configure the clients individually? In a nutshell : Can I configure the Asus...

    Asus AP mode "light" possible? (use behind Sophos Firewall)

    Hi there, I recently setup a Sophos XG and of course it is not really sufficient, if the is only one user (my ASUS AC88U). So I activated AP mode, which worked great until I realized that the guest network separation does not work here. Also bandwith limitations do not work. So the question is...

    ASUSWRT 386 new guest network IP space and DHCP static IPs

    ASUSWRT 386 new guest network IP space and DHCP static IPs

    Interesting thread - I have put my AC88U to AP-mode, and the guest networks are compeltely useless now. I have 2,4 1&2 activated. Not only that bandwith limitations do not work anylonger, no, you can easily access devices in the other networks. From guest and to guest. So for me AP mode and...

    General Question regarding DNS Setting in WAN and LAN

    Ok got it, last question, if I leave it empty, it fetches from the Modem /Router?

    General Question regarding DNS Setting in WAN and LAN

    Thanks a lot. But both do the same right? Leaving both empty leaves me with the DNS from the ISP (or in my case modem / router combo before the 88U) In case they deviate from each other LAN supersedes WAN? And in general when trying different DNS seervices (pihole, adguard) I better change it in...

    AC88U - Wireless Problems (deauth)

    As odd as it may seem, giving fixed IPs helps to reducne the impact of the problems, respectively leads to other logs: Jun 10 10:51:13 acsd: There are still associated scbs, avoid channel switch(txfail_thresh)

    AC88U - Wireless Problems (deauth)

    Thanks for sharing. To recap: 1. It could be because you are using the same ssid you used on an old router and clients are confused. I mean yes this is a possibility, however in the past I also had problems when changing the ssid (on other routers), since the clients remembered the MAC. 2. I...

    AC88U - Wireless Problems (deauth)

    To give a quick update: I had given my Mate 20 a fixed IP, and didnt get the "cannot connect" error anymore, however there were many disconnects. Had a couple of days a working PC, but this weekend it was really bad, so I went back to 384.13. Here everything works (until now, like couple of...
