    ZenWifi AX XT8 - cannot connect squeezebox radios (logitech)

    well, you probably read about my experiences with the exact same things you have, above. I could find no solution. As mentioned above I bought another non-mesh router and has been working absolutely fine with my two SB radios........with wi-fi 6 enabled on both 2.4 and 5GHz bands........no...

    Release RT-AC88U Version 3.0.0.4.386.41700

    Hmmm........so in your experience, the beta will fix this issue? The interesting part is...........so far other clients do not seem to have trouble with this firmware..........why only one....and that too Asus' own???! LoL

    Release RT-AC88U Version 3.0.0.4.386.41700

    I just upgraded my AX-3000 to this version....immediately having problems! One wifi client is totally unable to connect to the 5 GHz band....it is a computer with a B550-F Asus motherboard which has Wi-Fi 6 on board. Win 10 simply says "unable to connect" That machine was working fine for months...

    ZenWifi AX XT8 - cannot connect squeezebox radios (logitech)

    yes I may want to Merlin my AX3000 some day soon. Also I want to turn off SmartConnect on it. I see way too many clients being steered to 2.4 GHz band by it.... and the FireTV stick 4K has buffered a few times since morning...never happened before today, even on the old R8000 and never on the...

    upgrading router from GT-AC5300 to ZenWifi AX (XT8)

    My two cents ;-) 1 cent: Stay far away from the XT8. I am returning mine today after extensive troubleshooting with Asus and myself. Waste of my precious time! LoL 2 cent: Yeah, no need to upgrade right now, listen to the replies here. Wait for the 6E routers to come. They are almost here...

    ZenWifi AX XT8 - cannot connect squeezebox radios (logitech)

    Here is an update from me: Yesterday: I turned off the Smart connect on the XT8 and immediately the SB radios started working reliably. Then I thought I would prove it to myself that "Smart Connect" is the problem...by re-enabling smart connect. Did that, and interesting, the SB radios did NOT...

    ZenWifi AX XT8 - cannot connect squeezebox radios (logitech)

    Happy new year! Here is an interesting update: For some unknown reason, the two SB radios are now able to connect to the XT8. I have done no setting changes, but did do this little experiment: I powered on my old Router, a Netgear R8000, connected it to XT8 and placed it side by side. The idea...

    Asus Zenwifi XT8 lag spikes

    Ha ha! I was about to do the exact same thing when I read your post.... I mean send the XT8 duo back and get a single WiFi 6 router and place it centrally in the house. I now think mesh systems are good for people who have very large homes and need connectivity with frequently roaming clients...

    Asus Zenwifi XT8 lag spikes

    Well, a few things worth commenting about: 1. I swapped the R8000 with the XT8 and interestingly, my kid is not saying his lag in Roblox are back. Should have. Weird. 2. The whole point of getting a new router system was to get Wi-Fi 6 capability (both my gamer kis have AX Wi-Fi cards in their...

    Asus Zenwifi XT8 lag spikes

    Thanks for your tips Tim. I have tried all those things....nothing helps. Interestingly, while gaming through the Netgear R8000, kids do not complain :) I have asked them.........and that is why I am going back and forth between the routers to make sure it is Asus's problem. BTW, the OP has not...

    Asus Zenwifi XT8 lag spikes

    ok here is an update on my side: One kid who plays mostly Roblox games still says that he experiences lags....freezes where all other players freeze for a few seconds and only he can move around. I had him enable stats in the game, it shows everything is ok, other than the ping which is around...

    Asus Zenwifi XT8 lag spikes

    Hmmmm...in my admin gui, there's an option to turn off 5 GHz-2. In fact each of the three bands has that option, doesn't yours? It's under the "professional" tab

    Authentication problem with one of XT8 mesh pair

    85 views and no replies...I guess I am the only one with this problem. Have been troubleshooting this issue since morning....found out two things... 1. I disabled " Enable WMM No-Acknowledgement " on 5 GHz ....that made one of the cellphones (which was having trouble) finally connect to the...
