    Mysterious loss of connectivity

    I have the same router as you, but I have NO special setup in Merlin at all. Pretty much all 'out of the box' settings, apart from things like a couple static IP clients, etc. I am experiencing the exact same thing as you - My setup will work for a few days, and then all of a sudden the...

    RT-AX86U - Internet crapping out after using Homepod Mini's

    @HTBruceM Don't think that at all - I appreciated all the help. I do not unfortunately. I upgraded to merlin right out of the box - it was the first thing I did when I booted the router up.

    RT-AX86U - Internet crapping out after using Homepod Mini's

    I'm going to turn off the MAC randomization on the iphone/ipad's in my house and see where we get with that. Hopefully that'll fix the issue. Thanks again for your help!

    SO far, so good - I haven't seen any repeats of those entries since i filtered the MAC's for those two devices to the 2.4ghz band. I'll keep tabs on it over the next few days and will report back. Thanks so much for all your help!

    RT-AX86U - Internet crapping out after using Homepod Mini's

    I purchased the RT-AX86U about 2 weeks ago and haven't had any trouble until this past weekend, and now it seems be to be occurring regularly. The router is running the latest firmware from Merlin (386.2_4). What I can say is that all of the times the internet has stopped working (and I...

    Upgrading from an AC-3200 to potentially an AX86U

    The WifI environment is that the router is currently on the 3'rd floor of a 3 storey house, (not ideal, but its the best I can do with where the ISP put the line into the house) in a bedroom that's midway through the house. Most of the devices that connect to that router are all on the same...
