    XT8 Mesh - great signal strength but slow internet speed

    Temporarily power off the other mesh points to test. Also make sure all other devices are idle or off when you test.

    RT-AX88U log flooded with wlceventd

    What device is having the problem? Is the problem on 2.4 or 5 GHz? Have you tried disabling AX features?

    XT8 Mesh - great signal strength but slow internet speed

    What device are you testing with? Make sure you start by connecting your device to the root node (the one with Ethernet connection).

    In some dire need of assistance (AX86U)

    Thanks for checking that. Next to try, then, is to take DHCP out of the picture entirely and set static IP on the device(s). Make sure you assign addresses outside the router DHCP range.

    In some dire need of assistance (AX86U)

    If your devices are set to static IP, they're not going to ACK a DHCP offer anyway. Have you checked that the LAN IP on the new router is set the same as the old? I think ASUS switched to 192.168.50.X awhile ago. I'd also try switching a device to DHCP to see if that's the problem.

    [Security] - Cheap Routers from Walmart/Amazon/Ebay

    Do these even have FCCID's? If not, retailers could have action filed against them for selling illegal product.

    ZenWifi AX XT8 - cannot connect squeezebox radios (logitech)

    Are there a lot of those auth/deauth entries in the log? Does the MAC address match the squeezebox's? It could be that the router is trying to band-steer the radio and it doesn't want to move. If you can, try disabling the 5 GHz radios on the XT8 for a bit and see if the squeezebox...

    Tutorial Simple guide to using GitHub

    Those things are not a function of Git. They are up to the developer to document in release notes.

    What do "users of the code" need besides how to download a distro?

    Tutorial Simple guide to using GitHub

    There are many articles on this. Just search "git primer" or "github primer". If all you want is to grab a distro, you can just download a zip using the link found when clicking the Code button.

    My closest neighbor's router is always switching to my WiFi channel.

    I would not dismiss this suggestion out of hand. There is no technology you can apply on your network to fix this. The solution could be as simple as discussing the problem with your neighbor to see if there is a mutually agreeable solution, like disabling auto-channel selection on his...

    Will Wi-Fi 6 solve the issue not having to pick channels?

    There is nothing specific in Wi-Fi 6 or any Wi-Fi technology that completely eliminates the need to select channels. Unlike cellular technology, there is no central control of the network.

    Will Wi-Fi 6 solve the issue not having to pick channels?

    Not likely. Wi-Fi 6 is supposed to improve airtime efficiency, primarily by the use of OFDMA. Theoretically more efficient airtime use should reduce congestion. But there are so many "legacy" (802.11a/b/g/n/ac) devices in use that even if OFDMA did work (and my experiments show it doesn't at...

    Mesh System Suggestion between ASUS and TP-LINK. Help appreciated!

    To correct security bugs at least yes. But all depends on what you value. Sounds like you are budget limited and set on trying the Decos. Let us know how it works out.
