    XT8 - mesh - hidden network mirroring the wireless backhaul connections?

    Have you enabled guest network on both devices at same time? I never had asus routers so maybe it is something specific to them but such built-in hidden networks in wifi devices usually have some specific function like guest network or some internal path/failsafe etc in case of multiple...

    XT8 - mesh - hidden network mirroring the wireless backhaul connections?

    Usually such hidden networks are guest networks on devices disabled/hidden by default until you enable them.

    Solved Need help establishing direct connection between pc & NAS bypassing router

    Update: Turned out it was ethernet driver which was causing the issue. At first I didn't thought of updating the driver as I assumed using win 10 21H1 on a ryzen setup the driver shouldn't be more than 2-3 years old but when I looked I found out windows was using a driver back from 2015...

    Solved Need help establishing direct connection between pc & NAS bypassing router

    Speed tests are not big enough to show the spike effect, I get 220mbps upload & download speed consistently as the test finish within 2 minutes.

This is what the transfer speed looks like while uploading a 4gb file with max(& expected) speed of around 220mbps(see attached file). Is this...

    Solved Need help establishing direct connection between pc & NAS bypassing router

    Yes it has nothing to do with the torrents it seems but the primary dlink router itself. I am not sure what can be the reason that it can sustain 70MB/s of transfer speeds between two devices over ethernet connected to secondary router(see my network setup in my first post above) but can't...

    Solved Need help establishing direct connection between pc & NAS bypassing router

    @ColinTaylor Found out this issue is not limited to video playback, turned out when I stop all torrents & just uploading a 7gb file to google drive & directly connected to primary dlink router via 5g usb wifi adapter I still face similar issue where upload speed continuously varies from 220mbps...
