    AC66U rebooting randomly after connecting new Nvidia Shield TV Pro

    This started happening again. I was out of this house for a few months and I finally came back to be able to get back to this issue again. For the whole week last week, there was no reboot instance even when the Shield was connected. Today, it started rebooting again. I had to disconnect the...

    AC66U rebooting randomly after connecting new Nvidia Shield TV Pro

    So far so good after upgrading to the latest stock firmware. It might have even solved my long-standing issue of my whole network bugging out when a wifi client joins. I'm not sure why I haven't thought of upgrading. I thought staying with the latest Merlin fw is the best route since I have an...

    AC66U rebooting randomly after connecting new Nvidia Shield TV Pro

    Yes, I'm fully aware :) The only reason I'm running a "guest" network ia because most IoT devices don't support RADIUS authentication. So it's like an extra SSID with regular wpa2 authentication only. I see. How do you revert from Merlin to the Asus stock firmware? Also, why doesn't Merlin...

    AC66U rebooting randomly after connecting new Nvidia Shield TV Pro

    I use my AC66U in AP mode as my main firewall/router is pfsense. I just got my new Nvidia Shield TV Pro 2019 and connected it to my AP's 5GHz Guest network (as my main 5GHz network is using a Radius server for authentication and the Shield does not support that). Everything seemed to be fine...

    Need solution 86u behind router

    I understand that. But if the first NAT'ting happens on the ISP's side, which you have no control of, then you're out of luck. For example, in my case my ISP modem gets a private IP from the ISP. But yeah, I get your point. I guess I'm explaining a different situation. It's more of a triple NAT...

    Need solution 86u behind router

    You won't be able to port forward if the ISP router is the one doing the first NAT though. Usually with double NAT (ISP's npt supporting bridge mode), you can't do much. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    ASUS RT AC66U Disable 2.4GHz

    More like a prosumer solution rather than an enterprise/business solution. I use a pfsense router with my Ubiquiti ecosystem too. But yeah, I get what you're saying. Thanks for the insight but I can't give up my pfsense as a router. Too many customizations with it already for it to just become...

    ASUS RT AC66U Disable 2.4GHz

    Hmmm, makes sense. I didn't think that that was the case because the description of guest network in the UI is this: The Guest Network provides Internet connection for guests but restricts access to your local network. I mean, I'm still comparing it to my Ubiquiti ecosystem where the guest...

    ASUS RT AC66U Disable 2.4GHz

    That's what I thought. But the option to create it is there. Not even sure why. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    ASUS RT AC66U Disable 2.4GHz

    Also, I'm only using the AC66U as an AP (not a router). I have pfSense as my main firewall/router. In that scenario, can the AC66U guest network still be able to "isolate" clients connected to it?

    ASUS RT AC66U Disable 2.4GHz

    Thanks for the suggestion. And I guess I should also change the SSID of the 2.4GHz band for the primary network (even while hidden) so that connecting to the primary SSID will only be through 5GHz, correct?

    ASUS RT AC66U Disable 2.4GHz

    I see. My goal is to have both bands enabled on the Guest network and have only 5GHz in my primary network. I don't have issues with security because I use a RADIUS server anyway. I just want to be able to be more granular just like how I can with my Ubiquiti ecosystem in my other house. I guess...

    ASUS RT AC66U Disable 2.4GHz

    Is there a way to disable the 2.4GHz band for the main network in the RT AC66U while still enabling it for the Guest network? If I go to Wireless -> Professional, it turns the 2.4GHz band completely.

    RT-AC66U WAN port to LAN

    Right, that's how I have it exactly configured. It's just that I read in one of Merlin's post a few hours ago that this is not possible so I guess I was just confused by his statement, so I posted a thread to ask.

    RT-AC66U WAN port to LAN

    In AP mode, does the WAN port automatically get assigned to LAN (VLAN 1)? I do see that in Tools -> Sysinfo, the WAN port gets assigned to VLAN 1, yes, but I swear that @RMerlin mentioned that this was not possible at all because the WAN port is in a different physical switch inside the router...
