    Asus XT8 or Asus ET8?

    Wi-Fi 6E is a somewhat dead end branch of evolution. There are still few clients operating in the 6 GHz band, and soon, probably in 1-2 years, it will be possible to buy Wi-Fi 7 routers.

    Release Asus ZenWiFi XT8 - New Firmware:

    Question 1: why my Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Pro smartphone, in which the AX standard is not implemented, with such settings freely connects to the Wi-Fi AX network? Question 2: why my smartphone, if it is connected to 5 GHz AX, connects only to the node, but not to the main router, even if I am...

    Beta ASUSWRT 386 RC3-2 public beta

    Most likely the address is a "gray" address, not a public one. Please contact your ISP to provide you with a "white" external public address. It's not 100%, but I think so ... I had a similar problem (external ip address started with "10.") and had to buy an external public address...
