    ASUS XT8 all of a sudden weak mesh node signal

    Now all of a sudden it says -59 and it’s green again. Maybe it dropped to 2.4GHz. Why downgrade the firmware? Is there a know issue?

    ASUS XT8 all of a sudden weak mesh node signal

    Thank you for the rely. Sorry, I checked again it's -56dB. It's weird because the router complains that it's a weak signal.

    ASUS XT8 all of a sudden weak mesh node signal

    Hi all, my ASUS XT8 always had a great signal -72db. All of a sudden the signal quality deteriorated to weak (-59db). I didn’t change anything, not the firmware, no settings were changed and I didn’t move the router or the node. Does anyone have an idea how to fix this. I connected them with a...

    ZenWiFi AX XT8 Firmware 3.0.0.4.386_43169

    So should we update to 43170 or is it best to stick to 43095? Last time I messed around for hours after an update, this time I don’t feel like being ASUS’ guinea pig.

    XT8 FW 3.0.0.4.386.26044 breaks Sonos

    I wrote Asus awhile back that their firmware has severe issues with Sonos, and other devices such as IP cams on the 2.4GHz WiFi band and that the last Firmware version that worked was Firmware Version: 3.0.0.4.386_25790 and ever since they introduced an issue. I only received a standard email...

    XT8 FW 3.0.0.4.386.26044 breaks Sonos

    I thought about that too, but just out of principle I don't see a point investing in more hardware to fix an issue caused by Asus messing up. It would be a different story if I'd have a larger Sonos system, but for now I am driving two Play 1.

    XT8 FW 3.0.0.4.386.26044 breaks Sonos

    If the same issues persist there is no need for further testing, Asus has not fixed it. Thanks for testing, I guess I keep staying away from the update.

    XT8 FW 3.0.0.4.386.26044 breaks Sonos

    Thanks for letting us know about the update. Did anyone had a chance to test it with Sonos already? I won't have time until the weekend to mess around with the router. If you don't have a reply by then, I will test it and let you know.

    XT8 FW 3.0.0.4.386.26044 breaks Sonos

    Thank god I found this, was about to return the XT8, I am having the exact same issue. I also have an Eufy 2K Indoor Cam and it misbehaves too, it seems that there is an issue with the 2.4GHz network and streaming devices, as Sonos and Eufy are the both streaming devices connected to this...

    Asus ZenWiFi XT8 PiHole plus device selective VPN routing

    Hi all, I just replaced my Netgear XR500 with a pair of Asus XT8 ai Mesh routers. Now I wanted to add two functions that I cannot seems to find out. The first one with the PiHole setup, I only have one PiHole, so it seems that not all ads are blocked, do I need to enter the same DNS twice...

    Best Mesh Router with Pi Hole very old (thick walls) and multi floor apartment

    The Eero pro look nice but Amazon doesn’t ship them to Switzerland. I have a Netgear Router and yesterday installed PiHole on my Synology though docker. I’ve noticed a weird behavior of the Netgear XR500, even when I point the DNS to my NAS, it points it back to itself, so traffic goes back and...
