    Looking at an AC86U. Are there still issues with the 2.4Ghz band?

    If you intend to try AiMesh with your existing 68U, I would use stock Asuswrt 81858 on your 86U. Otherwise, use the latest 81992 (if you decide to revert to 81858 later, you must reset before being able to login, due to encryption added after 81858). Regardless, reset after installing new...

    Home network with switch-first setup?

    You still might want to reduce the coax network later to just the incoming ISP cable spliced to the modem coax... keeps it simple and direct and removes all of that unnecessary coax cabling from the network. You don't want anyone connecting stuff to your ISP link and bringing down your Internet...

    Does a 5.0 40 MHz client affect a 5.0 80 MHz client?

    That post remains current, generally speaking. It has even been updated with new findings from my erector set network. OE

    Does a 5.0 40 MHz client affect a 5.0 80 MHz client?

    I'm just being thrifty with old tech while waiting for new tech to mature. OE

    Does a 5.0 40 MHz client affect a 5.0 80 MHz client?

    I was using the N66U in Repeater Mode before moving to AiMesh. AiMesh was better all around and the wireless backhaul was stronger. I decided to try the N66U in Bridge Mode to see how the backhaul performs. Plus the AP since I've never tried using an AP. The roaming with the repeater was not...

    Does a 5.0 40 MHz client affect a 5.0 80 MHz client?

    Yes, but, blind troubleshooting is normal when you don't know enough and can yield some good. I will resist another 86U at current prices... I got my first two for $140 each after a Microcenter sale and Asus rebate... maybe they were dumping them already back then. Things I have learned here...

    Does a 5.0 40 MHz client affect a 5.0 80 MHz client?

    That is how I see it. When AiMesh users here recommend disabling everything in the course of blind troubleshooting, they should realize that they might hobble their wireless AiMesh backhauls since their routers may be their most capable wireless clients. OE

    Does a 5.0 40 MHz client affect a 5.0 80 MHz client?

    Update on my case study... My erector set network fell apart overnight when the N66U Bridge decided to reconnect to the E3200 AP wired to it... because of same different SSIDs on the AP. So, I made some adjustments. I created a dedicated OE-50 Bridge guest WLAN with intranet access on the...

    Does a 5.0 40 MHz client affect a 5.0 80 MHz client?

    I've noticed wireless connection quality consistently degrade with explicit beamforming disabled, particularly for the wireless AiMesh backhaul between two AC86Us where you would expect equally competent hardware to so respond. OE

    Does a 5.0 40 MHz client affect a 5.0 80 MHz client?

    Thanks! I'll update my notes... I was not sure of this since it's been influx and varies with dated source. That leaves the empirical approach of directly observing the channel that gives the best connection... in my case for the AiMesh wireless backhaul. OE

    Does a 5.0 40 MHz client affect a 5.0 80 MHz client?

    Thanks All, for the feedback! I need to study up. There seem to be many considerations, subject to who implements what with what generation of 802.11. Since my remote AC86U died and dismantled my AiMesh, I have replaced it with an N66U in Media Bridge Mode connecting at 5.0 ~243 Mbps -73 dBm...

    Does a 5.0 40 MHz client affect a 5.0 80 MHz client?

    Thanks! I'm left wondering... when does one set 20 or 40 or 80 MHz vs. 20/40/80 MHz? OE

    Does a 5.0 40 MHz client affect a 5.0 80 MHz client?

    Given a router 5.0 WLAN set to 20/40/80 MHz bandwidth, does a client connecting a 40 MHz affect/limit clients that can connect at 80 MHz? OE

    Firewall Not Blocking inbound SIP Traffic

    It's not a router firewall issue... it's your phone willing to talk to whoever calls. Check your phone's SIP account configuration for settings to reject anonymous SIP calls such as: AcceptSipFromRegistrarOnly = enabled EnforceRequestUserID = enabled Check SIP User ID for Incoming INVITE = yes...
