    RT-AX88U "ISP's DHCP does not function properly" but manual udhcpc call works

    I'm attaching the pcap file, though I had to rename it to .txt. It is obviously not a text file.

    RT-AX88U "ISP's DHCP does not function properly" but manual udhcpc call works

    This morning, I started having significant network issues. I have Cox internet, a Arris cable modem (not router/NAT), and that's it. The router started showing that the ISP's DHCP is not functioning properly. The router's syslog is similarly vague. I connected a Raspberry Pi directly to the...

    AX88 Ignoring WiFi Channel Selection

    Why would that change things? The channel it’s picking isn’t even 160MHz-capable.

    AX88 Ignoring WiFi Channel Selection

    I have the RT-AX88U. I've set up my WiFi to use channel 100 for the 5 GHz network. However, it's actually using channel 149, which is the single worst channel for it to automatically select (because all my neighbors' access points also selected 149). I'm determining the channel both from...

    RT-AX88U: USB Disk Not Mounting

    Interesting... Seems odd that ExFAT isn't supported. However, I did just use the router's SSH console to format it ext3 (since it doesn't have mkfs.ext4, and since I was lazy and didn't want to move the HDD to another linux computer) and now it works. Thanks!

    802.11ac AIMeshed with 802.11ax - how does that work?

    Interesting... I was being slightly careless with words earlier. When I say an "ax AP," I really mean "an AP capable of hosting AX clients," which usually also has support for AC clients using different logic (and possibly a different radio altogether). I believe the RT-AX88U is described by...

    RT-AX88U: USB Disk Not Mounting

    I'm trying to get this router to recognize and share a 4 TB USB disk I have. The disk is newly partitioned/formatted GPT/ExFAT. When I connect it, the USB icon at the top right shows that it's "Unmounted". In the system log, I see: Mar 9 11:45:05 kernel: scsi 4:0:0:0: Direct-Access...

    802.11ac AIMeshed with 802.11ax - how does that work?

    My main issue stems partly from the fact that the AIMesh already uses the same channel on all APs, even when they're connected via a wire. This limits my bandwidth to the max bandwidth of a single channel instead of using two, and there seems to be no way to change that without turning it into...

    802.11ac AIMeshed with 802.11ax - how does that work?

    Thank you for the wonderfully worthless response.

    RT-AX88U not using 80MHz/160MHz, but RT-AC86U did

    That's completely ridiculous. First off, if it shouldn't work by importing the config file, then it should reject the config file. Secondly, that is a *lot* stuff to update manually. But regardless, all done. Mac now shows 80 MHz. However, I cannot test whether the 160 MHz channels work yet...

    RT-AX88U not using 80MHz/160MHz, but RT-AC86U did

    Wow, that's a significant issue. Having to re-set all the VPN, DHCP, etc settings... There's really no way to transfer those?

    RT-AX88U not using 80MHz/160MHz, but RT-AC86U did

    I'm replacing a pair of meshed RT-AC86U B1 routers with an RT-AX88U. With the former, my MacBook Pro worked perfectly at 80MHz and had data rates around 850 Mbps. With the latter router, which I initialized by loading the settings file from the previous router, I cannot get it to connect to...

    802.11ac AIMeshed with 802.11ax - how does that work?

    802.11ax and ac work fundamentally differently. With a single-AP configuration, the ax will talk to ac clients in an ac mode and, when it talks to ax clients, tells the ac clients to effectively shut up for a bit. In a mesh situation, where I have two 802.11ac ASUS routers, if I add the...
