    Asus AX88U missing control channels

    Can confirm - the same behaviour with both the official and the merlin fw. The router by itself has all its channels. Add an AIMesh node and it loses the ability to select anything higher than 48. No real idea why except that the router and node are different regions. One interesting thing...

    Asus AX88U missing control channels

    So after some experimenting it seems that I lose the ability to select the additional channels as soon as I add the AIMesh node. I assume that is because my router is an EU one and my Node is Asia/AU. I can live with it - at least I know when it is happening. On a side note I was unable to...

    Asus AX88U missing control channels

    hmm - so I flashed to the latest Beta official firmware and have channels back. I am about to do a factory reset so I can connect this other node, then will try Merlin's again.

    Asus AX88U missing control channels

    Another thing that may or may not be related - my ring cameras will no longer connect to the 2.4ghz net on the side of the house that has the ax88u, but my ac86u node has a strong 2.4 signal. I am using the same channel and settings as I had on my AC86U. I now need to go through my wireless...

    Asus AX88U missing control channels

    understood @RMerlin - not trying to change the region as that is what I get for buying a unit second hand. what I am trying to do is work out why I cant see U-NII-2c. I was hoping it was a config error on my part but my research hasnt come up with anything obvious. I do need to do a full...

    Asus AX88U missing control channels

    Hi all, Have a bit of a strange one. I recently bought a second hand AX88U, which I have set as a primary AIMesh router, replacing my AC86U. The 86U is now the secondary node, connected via a ethernet backhaul. The AX88u only has a very limited set of channels available to select on 5g (36-48...

    Problem adding a DSL-AC68U as an AiMesh Mode

    leaving this here for future reference as I just had the same question: [Wireless] Does DSL-AC68U support the AiMesh node? | Official Support | ASUS Global TLDR: no it doesnt support ethernet because it doesnt have a dedicated WAN port.

    Setting Up NordVPN on Asus RT-AC68U

    I have Nord setup on our AC-86U, working fine. I set DNS to "Disabled" and use OpenDNS in the WAN config. Additionally I do have some DNS filtering setup; a couple of devices that are set up to go through Nord's Smart DNS (specifically the smart tvs). Note that in DNS filtering I have the...

    Beta ASUSWRT 386 RC2 public beta with full functions AiMesh 2.0

    Hi all, random question: is policy based routing working in this version, or should I go to a different one for that to work (using NordVPN) Edit, NVM - it is working correctly; I just didnt have enough patience for the settings change to kick in!

    [Official Release] AiMesh Firmware v3.0.0.4.384.20308 for All Supported Products

    hmm... I just realised that the firmware available on the Asus website for Australia is lower than the RC firmware located here. Is there a regional difference in the firmware, or does the region setting in the firmware itself adjust the parameters? Might have to update it.

    [Official Release] AiMesh Firmware v3.0.0.4.384.20308 for All Supported Products

    replaced them with an AC86U (and moved the 68U to a node). Fingers crossed! Once the new 386 Merlin is out I will give that a go but will stay on stock till then.

    Is Asus dropping support for lyra trio?

    So just as a follow up to myself, I decided on the AC86U, and will move the AC68U into a node function. The Lyra Trios can go to ebay.

    Yeah thats the way I am heading. Good idea ref the setup - I might reset the lyras and then make the settings changes before adopting them and see what happens.
