    Asus ZenWiFi XT8 and DSL-AC88U - How to best make use of this?

    @Kapet thanks for replying. Yes that's right. I got that mixed up with 160MHz backhaul. I've been able to confirm using a WiFi scanner on my phone that the backhaul is indeed running at 160MHz. I've only been using this kit a couple of days but I'm very impressed so far. I have a PC wired...

    Asus ZenWiFi XT8 and DSL-AC88U - How to best make use of this?

    @L&LD thanks for the tip. I connected the ZenWiFi to my switch and set it to AP mode. Is there a way to confirm I'm using a 6GHz backhaul? It appears to be checked in the settings.

    Hi @L&LD, thanks for the welcome. Yeah, my thoughts were using the DSL-AC88U as an access point for some legacy devices and have the ZenWiFi be the main WiFi we all use. One question is, as I've no experience with AiMesh, would the base Zen need to be the gateway as well?

    Asus ZenWiFi XT8 and DSL-AC88U - How to best make use of this?

    I'm looking for advice on this setup. I'm currently using a DSL-AC88U for my UK EE connection. It has to be at one side of the house near the BT inlet, so the other side, especially upstairs, suffers deadzones/spots. I've read the good and the bad about the ZenWifi but I've decided to go for...
