    merlin fw update ... AX86U

    wondering if an update will land soon for the AX86U ? The last fw version that merlin put out for this router (386.3_2) is about 3 months old now .... realize there's other fw's he's working on and is very busy .... just asking to see if an update is coming our way some time in the near future.

    AX86U 2.4GHz broadcast question

    i’m going to plan on another wave of tweaks to my network with this router. would be beneficial to know why some legacy devices that can use 2.4 are not compatible with the ‘primary’ 2.4 broadcast of the AX86U ? that could help with choosing features like smart connect. maybe the reason is...

    AX86U 2.4GHz broadcast question

    bbunge thanks for those suggestions ... will look into them with time. as it stands now it took some decent chunk of my time to do the 'heart transplant' on my network and have all devices seamlessly working for everyone when they woke up this morning. being intermediate with Asus routers...

    AX86U 2.4GHz broadcast question

    i use a work provided vpn, yes. and it is indeed connecting to the first 2.4GHz guest broadcast because I don't want it having visibility to my LAN. and it was assigned a 192.168.101.x IP .... i have tried to change it's IP and make it binding (in the router) but that doesn't work. wrt the...

    AX86U 2.4GHz broadcast question

    something else i find concerning .... i have a work computer that i connect to my network. but my LAN IP subnet is different from the popular 192.168.1.x subnet usually used. this work computer connects to my router with an IP of 192.168.x.y (both x and y are between 2 and 254). so far it...

    AX86U 2.4GHz broadcast question

    i recently setup an AX86U to replace an older AC87U. I do not have any AX devices, during setup I chose to use 2.4GHz and 5GHz as separate networks/broadcasts. i noticed almost right away, that older wifi devices like printers, home appliances, older game consoles (that use 2.4GHz WiFi only)...

    AX86U aggregation

    in that case, i would opt to use just the 2.5GbE port to connect to the switch. given the faster connection between switch and router that should in theory allow more throughput between the router and my devices connected to the switch … up to the link limit of each device, correct ? or do I...

    AX86U aggregation

    does the AX86U allow lan aggregation including the 2.5GbE port ? logic: 2.5GbE + 1GbE = more throughput. i have an unmanaged switch with 2.5 ports. initially planning to connect the switch to the 2.5 port on an AX86U to allow for more throughput to devices connected to the switch. my nas has a...

    IP pool starting and ending .... question about

    you got me confused in that you answered “no” but the explanation tells me that the DMZ’d LAN device WILL reveal it’s LAN IP to the outside … ? so if that is correct, then the IP is revealed and a ‘snooper’ or other interest looking at the traffic coming/going with my public WAN IP would know I...

    IP pool starting and ending .... question about

    thanks all for your input on this. one last thing i want to ask. if i put one LAN device in the DMZ, does the router-assigned device IP address appear to the outside world ?
