    Repeater/extender for AX86U - seeking recommendations

    Yes, I am using it - its fine for what its meant to be. This review is spot on. As is this review - specific to the RP-AX56

    Release Asus RT- AX58U Firmware 386.49674 (7-21-2022)

    Yes, I use VPN Director (yet another reason to use merlin) to only use the VPN on my personal laptop and iPad (while corporate laptop uses its own VPN anyway) - while the streaming and other less-sensitive data flows through the ISP per Director's policies I set up. So not using all-network VPN...

    Release Asus RT- AX58U Firmware 386.49674 (7-21-2022)

    Thanks that's very helpful to know. This way, I can track the releases to estimate the possibilities and weigh the pros and cons of perhaps getting an AX86U - I only have/need 300 Mbps on my WAN, and the AX58U is delivering a max of about 65 Mbps with OpenVPN on surfshark, a ceiling that would...

    Release Asus RT- AX58U Firmware 386.49674 (7-21-2022)

    Thanks for talking sense, and its a problem with quite a few (many?) voluble posters in this forum - they always express opinions biased by their personal beliefs/preferences, rather than facts and measured guidance. It doesn't affect me, but it can be detrimental to new members who aren't...

    Release Asus RT- AX58U Firmware 386.49674 (7-21-2022)

    Thanks. Hm, given AX-58u is a 1.5 GHz tricore processor, and Wireguard is multithreaded - it would be quite a shame if it doesn't get Wireguard client...

    Release Asus RT- AX58U Firmware 386.49674 (7-21-2022)

    Does anyone have a guesstimate on when the AX-58u will get the Wireguard Client feature, now AX-86U and AX-88U and others have already gotten it from Asus in productioon f/w ? I presume RMerlin will release it based on that new codebase ?

    Asus fanboy: need upgrade

    If you read the reviews by people as comments to the review by dongknowstech dot com - many people have reported positive experiences, so long as they have had the right expectations. While generally helpful, the problem with forum posting by various often is, many would rather post opinions...

    Asus fanboy: need upgrade

    I have been using the RP-AX56 as a AIMesh node with a AX-58u (w/ merlin) as the main router. Throughput at 300 Mbps or so is fine with me, as that is what my WAN bandwidth is and that is more than sufficient. My main concern was whether the latency would be much affected when connected through...

    VPN Director - What am I missing ?

    While I'm not a networking expert, what you are saying may be spot-on. Yes, I'm using the same VPN provider. Here's my output from the commands, where the bolded red lines probably indicates the problem - the second bolded line should be reading default via 10.8.8.1 dev tun1"2", etc ? (I've...

    VPN Director - What am I missing ?

    VPN Director - What am I missing ?

    The above pic shows how I have set up VPN Director - for the clients with IPs .125, .190, .85 to use OVPN1, while the .190 and .180 should use OVPN2. I have the kill switch off for both OVPN1 and 2, and "Redirect Internet traffic through tunnel" is set to "VPN Director (policy rules)" for both...

    AX58U Slow OpenVPN speeds

    Thanks, that's helpful input. I see the new - RC3-Beta firmware from Asus, carrying the Wireguard feature. So hopefully Asus will release the GPL for WG included, given the latter itself is open source. So we have something to look forward to...

    AX58U Slow OpenVPN speeds

    Doesn't answer my question, but thanks for the off-topic advise :)

    AX58U Slow OpenVPN speeds

    Yes, after researching this forum, I think its safe to conclude that the AX-58U is limited to 40 - 50 Mbps with OpenVPN, no matter what the provisioned ISP speed is. The only way around for the AX-58U to have higher speeds, might be through the wireguard support that Asus has released beta...
