    Asus Aimesh and packet loss

    Hi, I bought an ASUS RT-AC88U and my old router ASUS RT-AC86U and I configured Aimesh. Both routers have official Asus firmware. ASUS RT-AC88U (master) (3.0.0.4.385_20631-g0c36149) (192.168.1.1) ASUS RT-AC86U (node) (3.0.0.4.385_20633-g593a8ef) (192.168.1.122) I've noticed sometimes the node...

    Dual-band router with Tri-band node versus vice versa for AiMesh

    Hey all, I'm looking to get another Asus router to extend my wifi range using AiMesh. I current have the AX58U which is a dual-band router. Ideally both the router and the node would have tri-band, but I would like to keep using my existing router. I did some searching and it seems like most...

    Dual-band router + Tri-band node in AiMesh wireless backhaul?

    Does anyone have experience in setting up a dual-band router with tri-band AiMesh node over wireless backhaul? I am getting good offers on a AX88U + AX92U combo package. I don't have option for wired backhaul. Is 5GHz-2 used at all as dedicated backhaul in this case or does the node simply...

    AiMesh and Node Choice

    Just set up my first AiMesh using the not-so-loved RT-AX92U bundle. Yeah, no Merlin support, and I'm not using ethernet as the backhaul but instead the dedicated WIF6 channel, so I get that my choice was not inspired. Still, what's done is done. So, my 2 questions: 1) When I look at the...

    I currently have (4) T-Mobile TM-AC1900 routers all connected by ethernet Cat6. I've had these old routers for years and love them.
