    Asus XT8 + XD4

    I do not see any issues with the suggested setup. The XD4 is designed to work well with other AiMesh Routers or Zen Wifi Devices. Since you already have ethernet backhaul in place.

    Upgrading from WRT1900AC. Suggestions to protect from lightning surges.

    Hello everyone, The router (WRT1900AC) in my parent's house recently stopped working because a nearby lightning strike ruined the WAN port. It worked flawlessly for the most part. Range in some places used to keep dropping. I believe its an AC Wave 1 router so it does not have as many bells and...
