    Request: Recommend a Media Bridge

    Hi guys, I want to buy a router and set it to “media bridge” mode so I can connect some media/game devices to its Ethernet ports to get better throughput (3 in total). My main router is an Asus AC86U. What would be a good value one to acquire? Or is there a better option? (I live in a...

    Asus Wireless Extender (RP-AC55): Stock Firmware Work With Merlin Router...??

    Hi All, ASUS makes a wireless extender (Model: RP-AC55) that supports AiMesh. Understood that Merlin's firmware does NOT support this model. Question: If I use this extender with its latest stock Asus firmware, will it work with my AC86U router running Merlin Firmware 384.19? I couldn't...

    Gotcha, I'll give it a shot at some point. After all the troubleshooting I've done to get this thing stable, I'm going to enjoy this for a little bit. Thanks for the response.

    Router = AC86U AiMesh Node = AC68U (wfd_unregisterdevice) Instability Fix

    @bbunge - Yikes, thank you for catching my typo (edited and fixed - I meant the 86U was my main router). The 86U was my main router. This is really good info to know, thank you, I'll give it a shot! How did you end up figuring it out with those specific settings? Kudos! Also as @Smokey613...

    AC88U - Wireless Problems (deauth)

    I ran into this issue and did a ton of troubleshooting (I forgot to include the deauthenticated portion in my thread - I'll edit it). Ultimately, if you downgrade to 384.13, everything is fine. Oddly enough, I posted it today...

    Router = AC86U AiMesh Node = AC68U (wfd_unregisterdevice) Instability Fix

    I searched all over the place for this issue, and never saw a clear cut thread - to the point I spent significant time of trial and error to figure this out. I hope this will help someone out... Setup: AC86U = Main Router AC68U = AiMesh Node Backhaul = Wireless Smart Connect = Disabled SSID's...

    AC86U: Frequently Unregisters Itself (wfd_unregisterdevice)

    I seriously love the support on this forum, this is awesome. Thank you to everyone who responded to me. @L&LD - In regards to your response, this is pretty much what I did: 1) I used the 'Wi-Fi Radar' option to get a better idea of the channels around me. 2) Tested the ones I could use and...

    AC86U: Frequently Unregisters Itself (wfd_unregisterdevice)

    @L&LD The short answer was poor router placement due to where my home office is + cable modem + wanting ethernet on my desktop (I'm in a rental place). Regardless, with that placement being so close, you'd "think" this should work well...:) Out of curiosity, why would the same SSID's for...

    AC86U: Frequently Unregisters Itself (wfd_unregisterdevice)

    @L&LD To answer your questions: 1) They're 20 feet apart 2) Backhaul is wireless 3) No SmartConnect. Wow, that's good to know regarding the compatibility. 4) They SSID's are the same for both bands. 5) My Channels for both 5GHZ and 2.4GHZ are fixed channels. 6) Bandwidth for 5GHZ is 20/40/80...
