    Some pages stall on safari on LAN, but Wifi they work fine?

    found the issue. theres a new setting that is 'on by default' in Safari - 'hide IP from tracking websites' which apparently breaks a lot of stuff - not sure why it breaks only on LAN vs Wifi but... turning it off immediately resolved the issues.

    Some pages stall on safari on LAN, but Wifi they work fine?

    never had an issue in the past, extended pings work fine, in the sub 1ms. MacOS allows dual paths, it prioritizes the top path, and has worked fine like this for... 5 years? Over on the Mac subreddit, others are complaining of the same issue. seems to be / maybe related to iCloud Private relay...

    Some pages stall on safari on LAN, but Wifi they work fine?

    Trying to track down an issue ive had for a couple days now. Some pages like my Piaware page, and my weather station page will partially or completely stall with Safari. Reddit is another as well, it loads some of the page but never finishes. as the download page for MS Edge (I was trying to...

    FIOS goes down, cant ping IP addresses but can ping own WAN IP.

    Ive got FIOS and recently starting having internet disconnection issues. The internet will go down, no pages comes up, I cant ping google, 1.1.1.1, or even the IP of the Verizon DNS servers. I can ping my ONT but nothing else outside my network. During this time my router (Asus AC3100 w/...

    WAN goes down, Wan light still white. renew DHCP lease brings it back

    Im just trying to rule out other issue, as they ran their tests while I was 'down' and didnt see anything. replacing the end of that cable then resolved the issue for 7 days so Im wondering if the cables gone bad. not sure how to test that other than replacing 75ft of cable running outside...

    WAN goes down, Wan light still white. renew DHCP lease brings it back

    yeah, that could be a real PITA, as ive been on a fairly static IP for some time, and use a domain to connect to my VPN and rebooting the router every night would likely cause a new IP every day. not that I need one, but I usually had a IP for months on end before this all started. I have to...

    WAN goes down, Wan light still white. renew DHCP lease brings it back

    Im trying to eliminate an issue Im having where my internet will stop working randomly. It usually occurs during work hours which for WFH is extremely annoying. Im on FIOS with ethernet from the ONT -> AC3100->MacBook via Lan. This setup has worked flawlessly for ~5 years, until xmas when I...

    Can we please stop calling it mesh?

    not talking ISP. most mesh routers are multigigbit connections. splitting it by half for backhaul really won't affect 99.5% of people buying mesh because they think it will be better.

    Can we please stop calling it mesh?

    but most people have 2+gb capable mesh systems, for 100mbps connections. they'll never notice and as long as the speeds dont affect TikTok the kids wont complain any more about wifi

    ASUS firmware DHCP "Continuous Mode" potential fix for "ISP's DHCP did not function properly"

    Im getting this recently too. I switched from an AC3100 to an AX86U and found the performance wasnt worth it, so I went back to the AC3100. Now every day at 10am I lose WAN DHCP. just clicking 'apply' in the WAN config is enough to fix it, but it was literally rock solid for the last 4 years...

    Brand new RT-AX86U, slow wired ports (more accurately, slow speedtests)

    I only know it from the Merlin firmwares.

    Not getting near rated speeds when wired on brand new AX86U

    I found that turning off the Tree Spanning did the trick for me on Wired internet - speed tests and lan speeds now seem identical up/down - now if I can figure out why the wifi will do 800 down and only 250 up...

    Brand new RT-AX86U, slow wired ports (more accurately, slow speedtests)

    but on all of my devices, latest iPad, and 2 MacBooks with AX, I get ~600mbps down, but less than 150 up - why?

    Brand new RT-AX86U, slow wired ports (more accurately, slow speedtests)

    a: its Mhz, not Ghz. b: are you sure those devices support 160mhz bands? I know my apple devices all support wifi 6, but none support 160Mhz bands. all 80mhz, which is making me reconsider my purchase. edit: it looks like at least the note 20u does NOT support 160mhz bands : Wi-Fi 802.11...

    Brand new RT-AX86U, slow wired ports (more accurately, slow speedtests)

    Whitey019 - I turned off "Spanning-Tree Protocol" and that seemed to have helped my speed test on LAN. my wifi is still 400/150 on my iPad Pro (wifi AX, 5 ft from the router) but tests on LAN seem better on upload now.
