    Two GT-AX11000 wired backhaul, can I use the 5GHz-2 on the node?

    What he is saying that when you select wired backhaul it still reserves the 2nd 5GHz band that is used for wireless backhaul. You never get that band back even with wired backhaul. It would be nice to have all 3 bands used the same way as the normal "Smart Connect" mode on both tri-band routers...

    AC5300 performance, high CPU (or not), and AiMesh

    Quick question, Can I run Merlin firmware while in AP mode? I have the AC5300 in AP mode and hardwired to my AX11000, which is connected to my modem. I know I cannot run Merlin in AiMesh mode, but can it be ran in AP mode. (AiMesh mode doesn't allow for the 2nd 5ghz band to be used when using...

    Yeah I saw the 5GHz-2 channel as well, but its not a seamless as AiMesh to do it this way. Right now I changed the node (AC-5300) into AP mode instead of AiMesh, made both SSID's the same and can use all 3 bands on both my AX11000 and AC5300. It works, but AiMesh should really allow you to use...

    What sucks is that if you use a wired backhaul like I do you still do not get the 5GHz-2 band back to use for clients. It remains reserved for backhaul in case your wired backhaul fails. I think they could program it to give you your 2nd 5GHz network back and have a fail over if your ethernet...

    Read an article and they still reserve the 2nd 5ghz band for backhaul no matter what as well.

    Apparently Asus still reserves that 2nd 5ghz band (the fastest band) for AiMesh if the ethernet backhaul goes down no matter what. It ticks me off and I am looking to jump ship if they don't update it anytime soon to the new Alien routers from Amplifi because I have verified that their's does...

    Where in the menu's do you check to see if it's enabled or disabled? for the life of me I cannot seem to find it lol

    Any notes on this upgrade of what it actually updates? My biggest complaint is having the 2nd 5ghz band reserved/blocked for backhaul when I am using ethernet at the backhaul instead of my devices being able to use it. I wired my house a few months ago and found out that you lose the 2nd 5ghz...

    Asus Aimesh any good?

    I just want my 2nd 5ghz bands back on my AX11000 and AC5300 while using ethernet backhaul. I swapped my AC5300 to AP to enable the 2nd band. It's better for the most part, but still not the same.

    ASUS AX95Q (AX6600) release date

    Any updates on the release of this? Would love to replace my AC5300 in my AiMesh system and pair this with my AX11000.

    I don't. When in AiMesh it limits me to 2 bands both online config and within the Asus App when it comes to AiMesh and steering them from 2.4 and 5ghz. I can manually connect to the 3rd band on a device because it's labeled something a bit different, but that 3rd band is not available when...

    I really just wish they would update their AiMesh to allow the 2nd 5ghz band to be available when users are using an ethernet backhaul. I am looking to swap to the new Amplifi Alien that was just released here soon if things don't change. Kinda crazy that they dedicate that band even with the...

    Asus Aimesh any good?

    Does anyone know when or if ASUS will allow us to get the 2nd 5ghz band back when using Cat6 as the backhaul instead of wifi? I just wired my house and connected all of my core hardware including my AX11000 and AC5300 together via Cat6 and would be awesome to have all 3 bands available

    Does anyone think/know if Asus is going to allow us to have the 2nd 5GHz band back when in mesh mode if the mesh mode is attached via Ethernet as the backbone between the two nodes? I am currently using a AC5300 as my node paired with my AX11000 and will be wiring my house this weekend to use...
