    ASUS AX8*U and XD4 mini kit

    Hi there, I have an AX86U that is my my main router and I have bought the XD4 x3 pack (although I dont think it matters which mesh system is used). The pack consists of 2 nodes and a router. Can the XD4 router be set up as a simple node like the other 2 nodes in the pack? I remember reading...

    AX86U switch range from 50.1 to 1.1 - MAJOR issues

    No I appreciate that. What I should have done was just remove every client from the new Asus, change it to 1.1 and then add one client back at a time. I didnt think to do that.

    Do AX8 and 12 support mesh?

    Do these routers support mesh (MK62) or are they standalone only? Thanks.

    AX86U switch range from 50.1 to 1.1 - MAJOR issues

    Thanks. Needless to say I have looked around forums and couldnt find any of those you are referring to. I have also done all you suggested but as I say, the clients have no problem syncing with the AC when it swaps range. So router is being returned as I've all the tried all the things people...

    AX86U switch range from 50.1 to 1.1 - MAJOR issues

    Just swapped in my AC 86U that's default IP is 1.1. I changed that to 50.1 and no problems so itsn't my laptops fault.!!! But for some reason both my laptops do not like the AX switching from 50.1 to 1.1. (I've even turned off AX and 160 before making the switch to 1.1 and I've tried both ASUS...

    AX86U switch range from 50.1 to 1.1 - MAJOR issues

    The laptop is a 2020 surface pro. I've just plugged my old AC 86U back whos default is 1.1 and my laptop goes back to normal. So something is happening when I change the AX from 50.1 to 1.1. My laptop (any my other 2018 Dell) just will not connect for several minutes and is unstable. The moment...

    AX86U switch range from 50.1 to 1.1 - MAJOR issues

    i have now switched back to 50.1 without factory reset. no reboot of router or laptop and all is normal again. absolutely bizarre. I will add that on 1.1 ALL other wireless devices are fine (Firestick, phones). But the 2 laptops refuse to connect. If I cant resolve this I'll have to make sure...

    AX86U switch range from 50.1 to 1.1 - MAJOR issues

    Appreciate I've been on here a bit but little by little I'm finding my way through.... Had huge wireless issues, with clients taking over 3 minutes to settle on an internet connection. So I rolled back to the beginning - factory reset (ASUS latest firmware). Configured NOTHING apart name of...

    Does the Asus XD4 Mini have ethernet backhaul?!

    Not sure how else to explain. Anyway, it appears that the only one of them has 2 LAN ports and the others are satellites and only have 1 LAN port so they want do what I need anyway.

    Does the Asus XD4 Mini have ethernet backhaul?!

    Sorry a bit slow. Maybe easier to explain set up. Currently I have a ac asus node. The node is connected wired to the router and therefore shows a solid green light which means ethernet backhaul. The PS4 has a LAN cable connected to the nodes other LAN port therefore it's a wired connection...
