    Beta ASUSWRT 386 RC2 public beta with full functions AiMesh 2.0

    Rc8 automatically connecting strongest node works better than previous versions or production firmware. some iot devices on 2.4g would connect to node that would definitely be weaker previously. It wasn't causing a problem, I did not attempt to fix it in any way. I sort of assumed it was load...

    AI Mesh partner router to my RT-AX88U

    If you want to force certain clients to one band you can do that through guest network. Enable smart connect and one ssid for your main ssid on all radios/bands. add guest network on each band, give clients you want to connect to that only the guest ssid. You shouldn't need this, but it may give...

    Asus ZenWifi XT8 strangeness

    I get 25-30mbps on the mesh addon router and 55-60mbps on the main router on 2.4 band, that is not much below my isp speed. I have quite a few iot devices based on esp8266 and esp32 and a legacy internet radio streamer was on, i think thats why speed is down on one of them. Jitter varies...

    ZenWiFi XT8 crash & rebooting every 10mins

I just power cycle then they boot with default settings. Then i remember the admin menu factory reset method, so i did that too for...

    ZenWiFi XT8 Double NAT

    I have been using an rt-ac66u for about 5 years on sky, it got flakey and rebooting regularly, one time it erased settings, i went from merlin to stock and factory reset it. I wrongly assumed that stock doesn't use option 61 and since it worked i ordered zenwifi xt8 too knowing merlin not...
