    Optimizing AC3200 and AC1900 (AP)

    Thanks much. The AC3200 doesn't support AiMesh so we're setting the router and AP independently. I have them both using the same SSID for each freq (one for 2.4 and another for 5). That doesn't appear to be causing any issues. Should we try SmartConnect? Currently disabled.

    Optimizing AC3200 and AC1900 (AP)

    Did try removing the 2.4 SSID from an iPhone and iPad. It was OK until moving out onto back porch... then lost the 5Ghz connection. I think there's just too many walls between the first floor router and that area of the house. Am considering pulling out our old AC-56U and putting it on the...

    Optimizing AC3200 and AC1900 (AP)

    We've got an AC3200 as the primary router with an AC68U as an access point on the 2nd floor. They're connected over ethernet. About 1800sf on each floor. There's probably 25-30' of horizontal separation between the two units. It's possible we could get a bit more horizontal separation but...

    Local DNS Failing on ASUS firmware

    Recently installed an AC3200 and AC68U to replace aging Apple Airport APs. The router was an ASUS 56u with tomato firmware. Replaced all that with new. The 3200 is the router and the 68U is a second floor access point (backhaul over Ethernet). Everything is working fine except local DNS...
