    USB to 2.5Gbe adapter on AX88U

    Cable matters makes 2 versions one is for a Game Console and will not work. Also mine didn't appear to work at first the steps I had to take were 1: Remove Cable if plugged in And turn off WiFi if it's on. 2: Restart TV from settings menu (Don't wipe it just restart / reboot) 3: Plug cable into...

    USB to 2.5Gbe adapter on AX88U

    For me I have Sony A80J and am using a Cable Matters # 202013 adapter in USB port 3, it is a 3.1 port the others are 2.0 The point I was making is that the ethernet to USB solution is being used elsewhere but it's a hit and miss for sure. Still a good one to remember if you need more speed or...

    USB to 2.5Gbe adapter on AX88U

    Something interesting from all of this. I am seeing where people are getting around speed issues by using ethernet to USB adapters on other equipment as well. One I am experiencing is my TV. As most TV's do it only supports 100 Mbps ethernet though it does support faster WiFi which is really...

    AX88U and Ring Doorbell 4

    Okay this is going to sound stupid and I don't mean to sound like a wisea**... have you tried different antenna positions on the router? I had an outside wifi camera that gave me all kinds of problems and I found just getting an antenna on the router the right way fixed it... hasn't been an...

    USB to 2.5Gbe adapter on AX88U

    I agree it isn't worth the $70 bucks or even the $20 to $30 bucks a 2.5G adapter sells for. I'd be lucky to pull a couple hundred gig bandwidth from the internet even streaming to all my TV's. I'll never use what I'm gaining but we never know what the future holds and it's nice to have in your...

    USB to 2.5Gbe adapter on AX88U

    I see your point but have to agree on how many wired clients (or any at all) are really ever going to pull full bandwidth from the internet anyway? Why not just use an inexpensive managed multi-gig switch that supports LACP and connect that to the router, I know you still have the same...

    USB to 2.5Gbe adapter on AX88U

    It gave new life to my ax-88u... I wasn't going to replace it anyway but it is a real nice to know. I had Xfinity 800meg service but complained of speed issues at times (lots of 4k streaming) so they just turned it up. I thought I would see if I could get full bandwidth into the router somehow...

    USB to 2.5Gbe adapter on AX88U

    "Why Asus did one 2.5gb port is difficult to understand" There is a 2.5gb port on the ax88u? I thought they were all 1gb including the WAN port...

    USB to 2.5Gbe adapter on AX88U

    Funny thing was I had to configure nothing except change it from the wan port to USB port. Disconnect the modem, change the wan port setting, plug the modem into the adapter, reboot the modem, plug it into the USB port and done. The adapter may show as 2.5gb because the modem connects to it at...

    USB to 2.5Gbe adapter on AX88U

    No but almost... There is no 2.5gb WAN port on the rt-ax88u which is a shortcoming if you have over 1 gig internet. So to get past that I am using a Motorola MB8611 cable modem plugged into a Sabrent NT-SS5G Ethernet to USB adapter and instead of the rj45 WAN port I'm using the USB port next to...

    USB to 2.5Gbe adapter on AX88U

    I know this is an old post but yes it works on the rear usb next to the WAN port only. It shows up as a modem in the config. All I did was unhook my cable modem, went to "WAN" tab then "Dual Wan" tab changed "Primary WAN" to USB and let the router do it's thing. Rebooted my cable modem plugged...
