    Yale nest lock goes offline

    I didn’t set it up from a back up. I manually entered the network name, password, etc. I may not have reset the node prior to adding the xt8.

    Yale nest lock goes offline

    The lock has already been reset. As well as a system reboot. I’ll try a reboot again. Wi-Fi password is numbers only. Nothing changed from the previous setup except there are 2 5.0 networks now and AX. Plus the 2.4 network. Same network name and password for bands previously and now. I had...

    Yale nest lock goes offline

    I recently added a single xt8 router to my home. It has an ac86u as an aimesh node connected via Ethernet Backhaul. My Yale nest lock goes offline about 30 minutes after reconnecting it to my nest connect. This started after adding the xt8. All other wireless devices stay connected. Nest...

    Thanks. I’ll keep the Merlin firmware on my node router.

    Merlin and non Merlin firmware

    I just purchased a zenwifi XT8. I have it connected to an ac86u with Merlin firmware as an ai mesh node. It is ok to leave the Merlin fm on the ac86u or should I switch it to stock firmware?

    Honeywell t9 thermostat not in device list

    I have an ac86u with version 386.3.2 set up as an access point. Wired connection to my att gateway. The Honeywell t9 shows as connected in the gateway device list but not in the asus device list. Any ideas why it’s not in the asus list?

    AI protection shows no attacks

    Ac86u with Merlin firmware 386.1.2. Under ai protection all are on but no incidents are shown. Is the ai protection broken in the Merlin firmware? My att gateway security protection shows ip addresses trying to be accessed by the ASUS router.

    Release Asuswrt-Merlin 386.1 is now available

    Is anyone else seeing WiFi speedtest results reduced by 1/2? I used to see 200 plus down and up. Now below 100? Switched to my att gateway WiFi and I get 200 plus. Ac86u main, ac1900p in aimesh mode. Edit this appears to happen only when I’m connected through the ac1900p (ac68u).

    Beta Asuswrt-Merlin 386.1 Beta (stage 2) is now available

    After getting up this morning, all appears to be working. CPU activity looks strange. It will peak and drop, peak and drop. I’ll look at it again when I’m home and can log in to the router page.I have not updated my ac68u in aimesh node. I’ll do that and read the change log later today as well.

    Beta Asuswrt-Merlin 386.1 Beta (stage 2) is now available

    Went from 384.19 to beta 5. Ac86u. Restarted the 86u by powering it off. WiFi works and wired internet works. But I cannot access the router webpage and the ASUS router app shows no wireless devices connected. Connected to an att gateway. From the first post it seems like I should factory reset...

    Beta Asuswrt-Merlin 386.1 Beta (stage 2) is now available

    I read that. Just confirming that was still correct. Considering the security issue was found after the thread was started.

    Beta Asuswrt-Merlin 386.1 Beta (stage 2) is now available

    For future reference. When the full Merlin 386 firmware is released, can I go from 384.19 to 386? Or would I need to download the ASUS 386 and then go to the Merlin version?

    Beta Asuswrt-Merlin 386.1 Beta (stage 2) is now available

    I currently have 384.19 on my routers. Is it still safe to go straight from 384.19 to the 386 beta4? Or would I be better off waiting for the release of 386 as non beta version?

    High ram usage

    Looking at my router stats I see my ASUS ac86u is using 75-85% of its ram. I also see high upload from my nest doorbell camera. 4 gb per day. Is the high ram usage related to the high upload? I assume the high upload from the nest is the data from the camera. Any tips to lower the ram usage...

    [Release] Asuswrt-Merlin 384.17 (and 384.13_8) are now available

    Thank you. That is what I have always done. I presume this is a safe way to update the firmware?
