    AX88U External disk?

    .....it's why I upgraded, 384.19 didn't work either.

    AX88U External disk?

    Yup, so no matter what I do, the Samba share don't work. Works fine from main PC, but all other 3 laptops with Win10 do not see anything on network? Neither do any of my other systems. Reset, reboot, install SMB 1.0, change IP, set fixed, re-flash router, reset, reboot, power off, hold my...

    AX88U External disk?

    Yeah all works thx, apart from no devices on network can see the drive apart from my main PC. SMB 1.0 needed maybe? Oh well, Rome wasn't built in a day :) *Edit* Also, is it OK to use the HDD power down on an SSD? as the light on it burns when its on constantly, and enabling this turns it off...

    AX88U External disk?

    So not AiDisk then? As for swap, just thought I'd create one as the disk is there lol :D Happy New Year BTW :)

    AX88U External disk?

    Have a 500GB external SSD (USB-C to USB-A) that I wish to use with my AX88U for network sharing at home. Also wish to have a swapfile on this disk. Can anyone tell me the painless way to go about this? AiDisk? I presume?, swapfile I'm lost lol? Running Merlin's 386.1b3 ATM. Thanks guys :)

    AiMesh setup with wired device off node?

    Sigh. Decided to upgrade to latest Merlin (386.1b2) on both my routers, and opted to upgrade the node (AC86U) first, through my AX88U (saves dragging unit from downstairs to LAN connection). No access to node now, all lights up fine. Tried to reset by holding WPS power in etc, but all lights...

    so what's the consensus? Beta 1 or 2 guys?

    AiMesh setup with wired device off node?

    Now that you mention it, the AX88U is in 'AX' mode with N/AC/AX mixed set also, 160MHz also enabled, but set on 80 at present. I have this set as my laptop has built in AX, but is the only device to have so. You think this may be causing the problem?, seeing as the AC86U only goes up to AC...

    AiMesh setup with wired device off node?

    Nothing to do with Pi, I ruled that out with my laptop (Windows 10 2009 latest), which experiences the exact same problems via a cable from node, using the CAT 7 or the 5e cable :) Yet pull the cable on my laptop, and it flies via the wifi on node?, but why not via Ethernet?

    Is my AC86U toast?

    Serial should be on unit itself, plus it says serial AND/OR model, so not both, but either ;)

    Is my AC86U toast?

    Had to dig my box out, as I bought from Amazon UK. Yup, 3 years Warranty it is, no matter what they say ;) It's on box. Mine is China also, but 2019 date.

    AiMesh setup with wired device off node?

    Thx for getting back to me guys :) Tested different cable, no difference, but didn't think so, as I was using new CAT 7 variant. Plugged in my laptop, and it's the same, connects instantly, but unusable, so nothing to do with the Pi. Tried setting AiMesh to Ethernet priority, no difference.

    AiMesh setup with wired device off node?

    So here is the case. AX88U as main router in living room with 384.19 F/W, all good. AC86U (same firmware) in bedroom as an AiMesh node connected via wireless to the AX88U, all good. Thought I'd run an ethernet cable from the AC86U to a Raspberry Pi 4 I have in bedroom, and it works, but it's...
