    RT-AX92U Dropping Internet on Router Unit

    I did the firmware update a few weeks ago. I went from things being rock solid stable to the same as OP is describing. We started getting random drops and needing to forget and then re-sign into the SSID. I was sorry I messed with a good thing. The fix, in my situation was pretty simple. I...

    Asus RTAX92U backhaul issue

    I’ve installed two 92U’s in AIMesh. Everything is working well except I’m trying to get wifi6 working. As I understand it, the wifi6 on these routers will only work if you connect the AIMesh via Ethernet. If not the second 5GHz SSID (the one I understand is used for wifi6) is dedicated to wifi...

    Advice on VPN

    I would appreciate general some advice on VPN. Right now I know very little about how they work (setting it up within the router) but that will change if I’m able to confirm I can use it for what I need. We use a Proxi Service to mask our DNS so we can access Hulu, HBO Now ect. I have the Asus...

    Asus iPhone App

    I'm wondering if anyone else is using the Asus iPhone app. It's simply called Asus Router. You can see all devices on the network and real time traffic. It seems to work well but I do have one question. There is a notification that says more secure connection. What is that? Is it a more secure...

    Reco Router, strong WiFi

    Some friends of mine are looking for me to recommend a router for them. I will recommend Asus as it's what I'm most familiar working with. The issue they seem to have is they have a giant stone fireplace that basically cuts their home in half. They are using a Bell supplied modem that has...

    Rebooting Router

    I have a question regarding rebooting the Rt-AC87U. I always reboot my router using the asus software. I log into the router and click reboot. It takes about 60 seconds. I do this periodically too speed things up. I’m going to be away for an extended period of time (no, not prison, I’m not going...
