    RT-AX92U on Shaw (Canada) Blue Curve Modem, unable to use bridge mode

    In this case it's maybe a bad block of IPs (1 hour IP assignment). Power cycling the modem will release any cached device MAC and assigned IP

    RT-AX92U on Shaw (Canada) Blue Curve Modem, unable to use bridge mode

    The lease time on your 70.x IP is only one hour, should be 2 days, so maybe there is an issue with the 70.x IPs Take the TPLink Internet MAC (EC-08-6B-BA-FD-41) and add it to your WAN page as in the attached screenshot and apply. This will give your Asus the same IP that the TPLink received...

    RT-AX92U on Shaw (Canada) Blue Curve Modem, unable to use bridge mode

    When you plugged your laptop in to XB6 while bridged, what was your IP address, 192.x, 10.x, 24.x, 50.x, 70.x...? If your laptop was a assigned a public IP and was working properly then it sounds like bridge mode is working properly. XB6 uses a "pseudo bridge mode" (can still access admin at...

    Ookla's resident Speedtest

    Surprised to hear about slow on-router speed tests with the GT-AC5300, network is idled and trying different Ookla nodes? I have an up-to-date XT8 connected to a bridged XB7 modem and the speed tests are quite consistent and slightly faster than using W10 Ookla app, due to the XT8 and XB7 being...

    XT8 - AX Laptop slow speeds

    Speedtest results on the XPS13, a mix of tests around 3m from the router and/or node, with low active utilization (no AV streaming or backups) on the network. Our node is in my partner's office (work from home) and has a strong connection to the router so the results are quite good via either...

    XT8 - AX Laptop slow speeds

    My partner has an XPS13 with same nic, Killer AX1650w and I haven't seen any speed issues, pretty consistently in 750-900+ range using the Windows 10 Ookla Speedtest app. Our network is setup as AX/WiFi6 with WPA2/3 on 5GHz-1 and AX only, WPA3 on 5GHz-2 backhaul Version 3.0.0.4.386.42095...

    ZenWiFi AX XT8 Firmware 3.0.0.4.386.42095

    I manually updated yesterday from the beta, node then router, with no factory reset and all good after 24 hours. 3rd party IPv4/6 DNS is working fine. Backhaul via 5 GHz-2, WPA3/AX, 80MHz channel and wireless speeds off the node are good, around 500-600 AC and 800-900 AX

    RT-AC3200 - 380.66_2 Wireless Issue (Resolved, see post #8 & 24)

    My WiFi was totally unusable after 380.66_2 update until I strung together the steps in post #8, all previous attempts (see post #1) to resolve including gui reset, reset button reset, WPS/Power reset and rescue mode firmware downgrade were unsuccessful. If I were to speculate I'd say that...

    RT-AC3200 - 380.66_2 Wireless Issue (Resolved, see post #8 & 24)

    Thanks for the router info AndreiV, same values on my router with 380.66_2 beyond NA vs. EU bootloader. Update: WPS reset router, let it restart and then unplugged it and let it sit for a while. Power/reset into recovery mode, installed 380.66_2 via firmware restoration utility, let it...

    RT-AC3200 - 380.66_2 Wireless Issue (Resolved, see post #8 & 24)

    Hi AndreiV, The router has been completely stable for the past year through many firmware updates up until 380.66_2 was flashed to it, hard to imagine that the radios started failing right at the same time that firmware was updated, seems more like corrupt radio driver/firmware that isn't being...

    RT-AC3200 - 380.66_2 Wireless Issue (Resolved, see post #8 & 24)

    Hi All, Long term Merlin user here. It seems like there are several reports on the forum recently regarding wireless problems with 380.66x across multiple devices and I've been wrestling with mine all weekend. Since upgrading to 380.66_2, wireless on my RT-AC3200 has been very unstable...
