    [Release] Asuswrt-Merlin 384.16 (and 384.13_6) are now available

    My RT-AC3100 running 384.16 had an issue today. The 2.4GHz light was off, and devices connected to it (hardwired and wireless) were reporting no internet. I couldn't access the web interface of the router, but after manually rebooting it, everything worked as normal. During one of the betas...

    ASUS RT-AC68U Firmware version 3.0.0.4.384.45717 [2019/05/13]

    You should do a site survey and find the best channel to use. There are some good apps for Android and iOS that will show neighboring Wi-Fi Routers and other devices and the channels they're using. Find the least used/most open ones, the lower channels are a little better because they aren't...

    ASUS RT-AC68U Firmware version 3.0.0.4.384.45717 [2019/05/13]

    I had a similar issue with the network speed dropping after a few hours. I changed the 5GHz channel to 36 and it's been fine since... I had it set to auto and it was picking high 5GHz channels that were slowing down automatically (probably due to some neighboring interference).

    [Beta-release] AiMesh Phase2 beta test for RT-AC68U and first beta for BlueCave

    Would you mind trying a fresh start on your node? Can you remove it from AiMesh and reset it and attempt to add/pair it again? A few of us haven't been able to... Thanks.

    [Beta-release] AiMesh Phase2 beta test for RT-AC68U and first beta for BlueCave

    I tried to update my RT-AC68U nodes to this beta release and start fresh. I wasn't able to add any nodes to my RT-AC3100 AiMesh router... so then I set one of the RT-AC68U routers as the main and tried adding the others as nodes (I have 4 AC68U routers all together), but the main router would...

    It allows LAN ports 1 and 2 to work together with another device capable of link aggregation (like a NAS or a PC with bonded LAN ports) to transfer more data at once.

    Have you tried to enable "Bonding/ Link aggregation" and see if all your devices lose internet access?

    [Official Release] AiMesh Firmware v3.0.0.4.384.10007 for All Supported Products

    When I enable Bonding/ Link aggregation, the router will not allow any device internet access. It shows a DHCP assigned IP from the ISP, but it doesn't allow any device access. Does anyone else have this problem? I've only tried with 20287 on the asus RT-AC3100 so not sure if older firmware worked.

    I'm testing out the new 3.0.0.4.384_10007 official AiMesh release now with 4 AC68U routers. Has anyone used the update with the RT-AC3100 as master and AC68U routers as nodes. The previous betas were really buggy until I disconnected the 3100 and made one of the AC68U routers master. Sent...

    [Official Beta] AiMesh beta firmware for RT-AC68U/RT-AC86U/RT-AC5300/RT-AC88U

    I was hoping for better connectivity, but I'm getting the same connection problems like before. My RT-AC3100 is master and I have 2 AC68U nodes all connected wirelessly. The nodes will go offline several times a day and many devices will report connected but with no internet or the 5Ghz light...

    [Official Beta] AiMesh beta firmware for RT-AC68U/RT-AC86U/RT-AC5300/RT-AC88U

    I was able to downgrade all the routers to the November release and then find and add the AC68U Nodes on my AC3100 and then upgrade all the routers to the latest release. Everything seems to be working now. For some reason with latest firmware and on hard reset AC3100 in router mode and AC68U...

    It was attached before. I upgraded firmware on both units manually and then hard reset them (holding the WPS button on power method)... Now I can't get them to connect again. I've done several hard resets and the same problem each time... I'm going to try to install old version, add node...
