    Looking for Wifi6 Mesh - No Orbi!

    Hi, I'll put my two cents in. I'm the owner of ZenWiFi ET8 and was actually curious about Orbi because ET8 has some major issues and terrible support, I'd say zero support because I didn't receive even a single response since I've bought this thing. My setup is similar to yours. The main router...

    Can we please stop calling it mesh?

    I am pretty sure you misunderstood the term. You think it's called WiFi Mesh because of how the nodes are connected while it is called WiFi in the first place for the same reason why a WiFi router is called WiFi router. Because it provides WiFi access to the network. There's just nothing about...

    Can we please stop calling it mesh?

    This Is undefined. Let's just remember how these things were first advertised and their key (or even killer features). One of them was a smooth transition (roaming) thanks to a single BSSID and a special roaming mechanism, which wasn't available before (at least in mass products). We had...

    ZenWiFi ET8 Kernel Crash (rtl8xxxu_tx driver)

    Thank you, I tried that. Unfortunately, there is no version other than 386, which is a single large bug.

    ZenWiFi ET8 Kernel Crash (rtl8xxxu_tx driver)

    The satellite crashes from time to time with May 5 08:05:17 crashlog: <1>Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address a0f478cb I'm not sure what to do with this. I'd like to downgrade the firmware but don't know where to find the previous version.

    Wi-Fi Privacy warning

    It seems Cloudflare helped and I don't see this warning anymore. So I guess that was my ISP.

    Wi-Fi Privacy warning

    Started receiving this after a recent firmware update on ZenWiFi ET8. If I choose to "forget this network" and reconnect the warning disappears but the next day it's there again. I used to have google there but just changed to Cloudflare. All the "smart services" that analyze the traffic are...

    Can we please stop calling it mesh?

    There could be many devices within the local network. E.g. a NAS device running Plex media server, backup systems, surveillance system, multiple TVs, etc.

    Can we please stop calling it mesh?

    Do you have any links to the Mesh specification or is i just your personal feeling? I don't see how the type of backhaul connection applies here. In my understanding, the Mesh term is about how the nodes operate in this network, including the roaming. Which is quite different from having...

    Asus ZenWiFi Pro (ET12, XT12) sneak peek

    Being a "happy" owner of ET8 I can say firmware is the key, and for now, what I've got with ET8 makes this thing a disposable toy. And their support is just a waste of time, don't even try to debug anything and submit any logs or your observations. I don't know if other brands such as Netgear do...

    Asus ZenWiFi ET8 - Connection Issues

    Suddenly this thing started working as expected (almost). I don' know what happened, firmware is the same but I went through many factory resets, and recently the satellite simply stopped connecting to the maser router just flashing the blue led. I did factory reset on the satellite pressing and...

    Asus ZenWiFi ET8 - Connection Issues

    @leerees I'm skeptical that it's due to the range, especially considering all these crash reports in the logs. I'm currently on 5G as a backhaul and it seems a bit more stable but disconnects are still happening from time to time.

    Asus ZenWiFi ET8 - Connection Issues

    The signal quality looks pretty good and the speed is shown as 2.8Gbps with RSSI around -50. @toaruScar the last log I posted with the kernel: unexpected IRQ trap at vector is from the satellite. @toaruScar In addition, every time I restart the system the following crash log entries are in the...

    Asus ZenWiFi ET8 - Connection Issues

    I've 2 terminals open in the background and ping commands to both the router and the satellite running. Just recently ping to the satellite started timing out, the first failure appeared at 13:52:56, nothing in the router log so far. A few minutes later in the router log...

    Asus ZenWiFi ET8 - Connection Issues

    Hi, thank you for the suggestion. I will try this probably over the weekend. For now, I see 5Ghz also has disconnects but seems a bit more stable. I will monitor for one more day. Overall, is the situation common with the mesh systems or are they expected to be more reliable? Wondering if owners...
