    Enabling Link Aggregation via NVRAM?

    If you enable SSH on the main router it also enables it on the nodes. Then you just SSH to the node using the same login credentials as you do on the main router.

    AiMesh Newbe Curiosity Questions

    Nodes don’t reboot but they do restart their wireless service when the main router comes back. You can command a reboot of a node via SSH (SSH is enabled and keys pushed from the router to the nodes). For a while in the early days of AiMesh I had a cru (Asuswrt version of cron) that rebooted all...

    Channel Options Now Available with Smart Connect (since 384.18)

    Interesting. Maybe the 20/40/80(/160)MHz bandwidth selection code has been having some attention over the last few releases then. It’s a little understood or noticed option within Wi-fi so could definitely have been missed by the masses thus far. Very difficult to analyse as the router will...

    Channel Options Now Available with Smart Connect (since 384.18)

    Network Map on Console

    Yea broadcast doesn’t seem to work for me either. Can you assign a DHCP reservation for the device so you always know it’s IP, then either ping or arping that unicast address? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Network Map on Console

    You could actively arping it every minute. I use this method to detect if one of my devices is connected. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    iPhone Constantly Disassociating/Associating from WiFi

    I think I’d go down the road of making the log filtering better... https://www.snbforums.com/threads/uiscribe-custom-system-log-page-for-scribed-logs.57040/ Though honestly I can’t remember the last time I looked at my logs and so thus wouldn’t be too bothered about this overall. Can always...

    iPhone Constantly Disassociating/Associating from WiFi

    This is a bizarre statement. Surely only users of Apple devices that you have given your Wi-fi key to are causing this issue? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    iPhone Constantly Disassociating/Associating from WiFi

    Roam Assist settings? Smart Connect settings? Those 2 things can tell a client to disassociate unnecessarily Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Wi-Fi calling issues

    Word of warning - If you do this you’ll lose ALL saved Wi-fi networks (unless you have keychain enabled). In all the years I’ve had iDevices I’ve never had to resort to this. I find just forgetting the network in question and reconnecting to it does the trick the 2-3 times something odd has...

    Wi-Fi calling issues

    I have indeed tested AP roaming extensively and tuned my Smart Connect and Roam Assist settings accordingly to give optimum performance in my environment. A VoIP call was my primary way of testing as it gave a good real-time stream, I’d call a test IVR playing music and see if I could detect...
