    Does aimesh use a tagged VLAN for wired backhaul?

    I have found that what appeared to be a smart switch problem was actually related to trying to use an AC1900P with an AC66U_B1. Aimesh only uses VLAN tags for the guest network After I setup Aimesh between two AC1900Ps using an Ethernet cable I was able to connect the node through smart...

    Does aimesh use a tagged VLAN for wired backhaul?

    The fact that someone found 501, 502 and 503 are used for guest suggests/implies they are using Ethernet backhaul through a smart/managed switch. Running the backhaul through a smart switch is the problem I am trying to solve. Running a cable across the floor, down the stairwell and across the...

    Does aimesh use a tagged VLAN for wired backhaul?

    While setting up aimesh I found that a smart switch blocks the wired connection between the node and the main router. Does this connection use a tagged VLAN? If it is using a tagged VLAN what is the VLAN ID/number? I did find that in another post that guest SSID apparently use IDs 501, 502...

    Does Aimesh work between RT-AC1900P and RT-AC66U B1?

    Running the ac1900p as the router and the ac66u b1 as the node I was unable to see the ac66 either wired or wirelessly. Running the ac66u as the router I was able to find the ac1900 but the connect failed either wired or wirelessly at around 75%. I next got the other ac1900p and updated the...

    Does Aimesh work between RT-AC1900P and RT-AC66U B1?

    I was using a lan port on both the router and the node. I will try using the WAN port on the node. Should I also use the node WAN port for normal backhaul operation? I never thought to use the WAN port

    Does Aimesh work between RT-AC1900P and RT-AC66U B1?

    I am trying to set up Aimesh between a RT-AC1900P and RT-AC66U B1. Initially one was running Merlin firmware and one Stock. I upgraded them to latest available firmware (of each) but was unable to add an Aimesh node. I was also running the AC1900P “router/master” in router mode. Next, I tried...

    Is the DS220j a good option for simple home backup?

    The DS220j only has 512 MB memory. Synology recommends at least 1GB for Diskstation 7.0 and 7.1. I would not buy another Synology NAS with The DS420j does have 1GB as well as 4 drive bays. The DS 418 for a little mor money than the 420j has 2GB, 4 drive bays and two ethernet ports. I bought a...

    Two routers to broadcast Two different SSID on access points

    First, your access points must have VLAN support. You will need a smart/managed switch supporting VLANs with a port for each access point, a port for each router and at least one port for the rest of your network. If you need both networks on wired devices, they will also need to support VLANs...

    Tutorial Using the Wi-Fi extender, the right way ✔ for MAX speed

    I don’t understand step 5 of the instructions. Step 5) Disable the radios on the Wifi Extender. If you disable all of the radios, you won’t have a connection to the main router. Does the DAP-1860 have more than one radio per band?

    Switch for IPTV (IGMP Snooping required?)

    You will need a smart/managed switch. Why do you need IGMP snooping? How much are you willing to spend? 2.5 (or beter) smart switches are still fairly expensive. This Zyxel is least expensive smart multigag I have found so far. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08TC3VJ61/?tag=snbforums-20 It has 3...

    5Gb gateway/router to 10Gb switches and 2.5Gb clients?

    Instead of media converters I would consider one or two of these. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08TC3VJ61/?tag=snbforums-20 https://www.zyxel.com/us/en/products_services/12-Port-Web-Managed-Multi-Gigabit-Switch-includes-3-Port-10G-and-1-Port-10G-SFP--XGS1250-12/ You can also get reasonably...

    Do I need a Moca POE filter in addition to a LTE filter?

    It appears my diagram was unclear. Also, it only shows the “Moca” coax segments. One moca adapter connects to the “main” two way splitter connected to the amp -3.5 dB to the amp. The second two way splitter connects to the other leg of the main splitter. The other two Moca adapters connect to...

    Qnap managed 10G / 2.5G switches?

    I decided to spend more to get more 10G ports. I ordered the Zyxel XS1930-10. https://www.zyxel.com/us/en/products_services/10-12-port-Multi-Gigabit-Smart-Managed-Switch-XS1930-Series/overview https://www.zyxelguard.com/XS1930-10.asp I currently have a Zyxel GS1900-24 and a GS1900-16 1G and...
