    Release ASUS RT-AX89X Firmware version 3.0.0.4.386.47468 (2022/10/18)

    And they're kind of hard to come by these days. Seems they're more focused on the European markets these days...

    2023 Smartphones To Get Wifi 7 Support. TP-Link Announces Wifi 7 Routers

    As far as I know, most PC makers have already incorporated WiFi 6E into their 2022 product lines. Samsung, MSI, Asus, Dell's Alienware, HP, Lenovo. And with Apple, which is notoriously slow in upgrading its WiFi modules, now supporting the 6Ghz band in its latest Ipad Pro, these developments...

    Release ASUS RT-AX89X Firmware version 3.0.0.4.386.47468 (2022/10/18)

    I've been looking for a wired enterprise router that can handle 10G broadband without severely throttling my ethernet speeds and the Draytek Vigor 3910 came to my attention. It costs a bit more than the AXE16000 though. Tech radar reviewed it. https://www.techradar.com/reviews/draytek-vigor3910...

    2023 Smartphones To Get Wifi 7 Support. TP-Link Announces Wifi 7 Routers

    Indeed. Their maximum wifi transmission power is also capped by regulation at 100mW whereas North America's (US and Canada) is 1000mW.

    2023 Smartphones To Get Wifi 7 Support. TP-Link Announces Wifi 7 Routers

    Thanks for the reply and agree on most counts. That's why I said to take TP-Link's announcement with a pinch of salt. I'm thinking that these developments will accelerate the release schedule of Wifi 7-supported devices and routers in 2023-2024 though, as manufacturers love the 'first to market...

    Looks like the 2023 flagship smartphones using Qualcomm's Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip will get Wifi 7 support. https://www.financialexpress.com/life/technology-qualcomm-snapdragon-8-gen-2-launched-with-ray-tracing-wifi-7-support-and-more-everything-to-know-2818485/ Ditto for those 2023 phones that...

    AX-89X All Ethernet Ports except 10G-Base T are not wokring

    Have you tried rolling back the firmware to the previous version? Some RT-AX89X users complained about their hardware freezing up after the latest firmware update. https://www.snbforums.com/threads/asus-rt-ax89x-firmware-version-3-0-0-4-386-47468-2022-10-18.81378/page-2#post-801620

    Release ASUS RT-AX89X Firmware version 3.0.0.4.386.47468 (2022/10/18)

    I updated the firmware on the RT-AX89X and the pair of GT-AXE11000 AiMesh nodes it was linked to via 2.5G ethernet backhaul. Started getting random device disconnections on the GT-AXE11000 AiMesh nodes but not on the RT-AX89X. Then the WebUI, AiMesh tab showed that my 2.5G ethernet backhauls to...

    GT-AXE11000 issues with internet speeds

    For wired speeds to go above 1Gbps, the router needs at least two multi gig/2.5G ethernet ports, one (WAN) connected to your cable modem and the other (LAN) to your PC. Otherwise, like what was mentioned in the earlier posts, you'll be limited to less-than-1GBps wired speeds either on the WAN or...

    GT-AXE16000 Owner's Thread

    Similar to what RMerlin said, I think range varies based on how your home and furniture are arranged, router placement, weather conditions etc. Posted something on my experience with wifi coverage on the GT-AXE11000 vs the GT-AXE16000 in my home environment...

    GT-AXE16000 Owner's Thread

    Appreciate you and your team's advice on this. The thing is, I've had most of those same advanced features enabled on the GT-AXE11000 and RT-AX89X without encountering those wifi problems seen with the AXE16000. Same story with the enabling AiProtection and throttling my wired speeds issue that...

    GT-AXE16000 Owner's Thread

    In my case, it was my devices, IOS, Android and MS being randomly booted off wifi (connected without internet) and being unable to reconnect to any of the bands until I'd turned off and on the wireless functions on said devices a couple of times throughout the day. Glad to hear that Asus fixed...

    GT-AXE16000 Owner's Thread

    Consumers who buy bleeding edge tech will nearly always end up beta testing the product. I bought two AXE11000s when they were launched early 2021 and was stuck on the original launch firmware for most of the year as any software upgrades immediately dropped the range of my 5Ghz band to near...

    Logical upgrade to go from AC86U to AXE11000? Change my mind! ;)

    Think this may be the 'best' alternative you'll get at the moment... https://dongknows.com/tp-link-archer-axe300-quand-band-router-review/

    AX98X random reboots

    Thanks. The RT-AX98X seems to be the only consumer all-in-one router that works relatively well with my fiber broadband at the moment. The AXE16000s were a bust...There's TP-Link's AXE300, but it has the same Broadcom quad-core CPU as the AXE16000 so that's probably going to run into the same...
