    AX92u as Extender

    Thank you for the reply. Yes I am aware of the radio configuration. I was just unsure if the backhaul would work when not in AiMesh mode.

    AX92u as Extender

    When my parent's ISP ran the fiber line to their house, the put the ONT and router in a back bedroom. Most of the living space is in farthest opposite corner of the house through duct work, a garage and plumping, which results in a spotty 5 Ghz signal. Been trying for years to remedy this. Tried...

    Closed Circuit Moca

    Thanks for your help. I took my cable locator outside to the amp. I checked all the lines and only one line registered a locator beacon on it. I replaced the amp with a splitter. I then followed the coax from the amp input into the telephone box which fed into another box (its another plastic...

    Closed Circuit Moca

    Thank you for your replies. I know the amp was not attached to the box, so I will check to see if the ground wire is attached. I have a tone/line tester that arrived today and the moca-rated splitter should arrive tomorrow. I'll take another look when it arrives.

    Closed Circuit Moca

    None really. They appear to all be "home" runs leading back to the central box. The original cable line to the basement appears as though it might run along the house and is buried before it re-enters the house into the foundation wall. Shouldn't that re-grounded upon entry? I tried a set of...

They currently CenturyLink Fiber with an ONT serving an ethernet jack on one side of the house. The router, an ASUS RT-ac88u can't deliver decent speeds to the exact opposite...

    RT-AC86U hit the FCC

    Much appreciated. I may need to pick one up once the software matures. I keep a spare 68u around incase the live router acts up. Saved me when the 87u fried itself and this 88u started acting up. Might finally retire it for the 86u.

    RT-AC86U hit the FCC

    Would you happen to have any inital thoughts or advice about the RT-AC86u? I was considering it with a network switch to replace an RT-AC88u with apparent port issues. WAN is stuck at 100FD and LAN 1 is unresponsive. Other ports randomly switch from 10FD to 100FD or 1000FD. Any advice on the...

    Replacing 87U - Need help

    I've used several 68's, an 87 and I just placed an order for an 88 this weekend. My best advice is not to give up on ASUS, because they make some really solid routers. The 87 was an unfortunate blip due to a myriad of issues with the 5 Ghz chip from Quantenna. Both the 68 and the 88 have the...
