    AiMesh trouble with ZenWifi XT8 mesh router

    I couldn't get the RT-AC68U to show up unless it was plugged into the XT8 directly. What I did notice was that the WiFi radio lights did not go on at any time and when I checked the configuration, it didn't show any SSID. I removed the node from the mesh network. This will factory reset the...

    Two routers in serial: unstable?

    UPnP on ASUS is enabled. When a device creates port forwarding rules on the ASUS router using UPnP, where would they show?

    Two routers in serial: unstable?

    Thanks for the suggestions. I have set up the WAN address of the ASUS router in the DMZ host field of the Huawei router and rebooted the Huawei router. Unfortunately, it did not resolve the issue. Both the Fingbox and Ring still are reporting disconnections. Surprisingly, the web cameras I...

    Two routers in serial: unstable?

    I am not that familiar with DMZ. I can see that I can add IP addresses to the Huawei DMZ configuration. I should add the Asus WAN IP address to the Huawei DMZ configuration? P.S. I assumed that configuring DMZ would involve designating one LAN as a DMZ network. Not that I can see such a...

    AiMesh trouble with ZenWifi XT8 mesh router

    I have an ZenWifi XT8 router and am connecting two RT-AC68U routers as Aimesh nodes. Both routers are connected through LAN to have a wired backhaul. After moving the RT-AC68Us to their intended locations, one works just fine, but the other does not show up in the Aimesh map. The WAN port shows...

    Two routers in serial: unstable?

    My provider is requiring to use a Huawei router which has a built-in fiber ONU. As a longtime Asus user, the router is just ........ (fill in your favorite word). So I decided to add an ASUS in the middle. The setup is very simple, the ASUS WAN port connects to the provider's router LAN port on...

    Aimesh vs ZenWifi Mesh Router

    Thanks for the reply. I understand that there is no major difference in hardware other than that the XT8 has 3 radios of which one is used for backhaul. If two ASUS router are connected to the LAN which is then used for the backhaul, there is no major differences and standard routers could be...

    DHCP Server in AP mode

    I need to use the router from my Internet provider because it has a built in fiber ONU. However, the DHCP server only supports 16 reservations and I need way more. Any suggestions?

    Aimesh vs ZenWifi Mesh Router

    My apologies if this has been asked before. What is the difference between routers running Aimesh and ZenWifi mesh routers? I understand ZenWifi supports Aimesh as well. Are there hardware differences? Software differences?

    iPhone does not recognize 5GHz while Windows 10 does plus AiMesh bonus question

    I have installed 384.13 without any problem. They AiMesh router is a US model, the AiMesh node is a Japanese model. Interestingly, only channels 36, 40, 44, and 48 are available for selection. These are the only channels shared by both models. I guess the advantage is that I can set it to Auto...
