    Looking for AP but so many to choose from

    Hi Some time ago I wanted to buy a router but talking with you made me realize that having my own setup would have some interesting advantages. A little bit of time has passed and now, after reading some manuals, watching some guides and such (still noob though ;)) I'm starting to look for...

    Asus Merlin in AP mode vs UniFi access point

    How do Asus routers (w/Merlin) in Access Point mode compare with true access points such as UniFi nanoHD? Is either of them much better than the other is some ways or is it a toss-up? Thanks.

    ASUS devices supporting AI-Mesh

    Is there a definitive list of all the ASUS devices that support AI Mesh? I found a third party list that might include all of the Asus routers that support it but I can’t say it’s definitive nor does it list any access points. I don’t know if that’s because access points aren’t supported or if...

    So, I currently have 2 routers. One is a Linksys and the other is an ASUS, I don't think models really make a difference in the scenario. Basically, I want to separate these routers entirely, but I want them to run off the same connection, with different IP's and devices connected would be...

    Asus RT-AC3100 2.4 WiFi down... use a second router for 2.4?

    Main question: Given my below situation, is it best to use a second router connected to the main router via ethernet as the 2.4 GHz access point? Rationale: The RT-AC3100 is not the cheapest (or most expensive) router, so replacing it is not preferred. The 5 GHz and ethernet connections...
